Formals, Events, and the Times of Your Life! How exciting! These are awesome moments of celebration. Some are automatically given to hiring a Photographer for the event. Others are on either side of the fence… however, I LOVE photography and LOVE shooting special events!
Ya know, when you host an event… YOU are often the busiest person there. What does that matter? Well… how much do you miss during your host/hostess duties? Do you get to see everything? Do you get the chance to visit with everyone who attends?
Are you still bogged down with a “to do list” for the evening: checking on staff, catering, making sure the events’ activities are flowing smoothly, standing at the entrance or exit greeting or thanking attendees for coming to the event/gala?
With a photographer there, you get to see the other perspective. If it’s a photo booth, you get to see the wild fun everyone had making funny faces during the entire evening. If it’s a wandering freelance photographer, you get to see the action unfold all night through group shots and dinner shots and the fun window opens so you can view the belle of the ball in her spotlight without all the worry or fuss.
No matter whether it’s an indoor or outdoor event, a birthday party, community gathering, wedding, reunion, or Football Game…. YOU should consider what you want to remember. Consider what you want to offer your guests. Photography can fit into any event that you want to remember!… Maybe you just want an album for an annual event that happens every year to commemorate each occasion and the changes that happen through growth and positive motions.
