The importance of event photography services is sometimes underestimated or only considered at the last minute. However, when it comes to promotion, event coverage is just as important as your other digital assets! You can share photos of your candid moments with your clients using moving images and videos. They give you more promotional material that you can use for future events or even everyday advertising. They're easy to share with attendees, keeping you connected to them long after the event. They provide you with fresh, unique and candid social media content. Finally, they enable you to create and distribute blog posts that drive more traffic to your website and business.

The preparation and hiring of trained professional photographers and filmmakers are essential for effective event photos and recordings. Here are some tips to help you make sure your event photography is as good as possible.

Photography Considerations When Choosing a Photographer

When choosing an event photographer or videographer, there are two things to look out for to ensure you find the right person for the job. First, look for people who have worked at the event before. Content relevant to your event should be included in this experience. Are you organizing a business meeting? Don't choose a photographer who specializes in bar mitzvahs. Do you have baby shower plans? Don't hire videographers who specialize in concert coverage. Hiring someone with little to no experience with your type of event can mean they are unfamiliar with key components of the event.

Second, find someone who is familiar with low-light environments and has the necessary equipment. Many activities take place in dimly lit venues that can only be illuminated by artificial lights. You need a photographer with the right equipment and experience to capture events in this lighting condition.

To ensure they have the necessary knowledge and skills to provide you with great moving images and videos, ask to see their portfolio of activities.

What you should tell your event photographer

After you've hired a photographer, it's critical to incorporate as much of it into the planning process as possible. Here's a rundown of what you should tell your photographer, along with some tips on how to include them in the planning process.

The sequence of events is as follows:

  • Also specify when they can be set up, when visitors arrive, when important presentations happen, when to take appropriate breaks, etc.
  • The list of lenses is as follows: we have written a whole section just for it because it is so important. Check out the list below!
  • Dress Code: What is the format of your party? What should your photographer/videographer wear?
  • Meal options include: Make sure to ask your photographer or videographer about any dietary restrictions you may have. If there are plate meals, be sure to ask about their preferences. Serve your photographer a warm dinner that they will love!
  • Lighting: Discuss the environment and the type of lighting that will be used. If possible, photographers should also visit the event venue in advance. Both of these factors will allow your photographer to properly plan their equipment.

Must Shadow Photos

As mentioned earlier, it is crucial to discuss your event photography shoot checklist with your photographer. Without this dialogue, your photographer may overlook key people or events. To help you plan your shooting list, here is a list of popular requests.

  • Details and decor (these photos are great to share with the vendor who provides them!) are very important before your guests arrive, especially in wedding photography.
  • Candid photos were taken throughout the occasion.
  • Key speeches and speakers from different perspectives
  • Shoot events and presentations from a distance.
  • Grouping of key people and compositions (assign someone to help the photographer understand these important people and groups)
  • Consider celebrity style on the red carpet. The step-and-repeat method usually involves using a backdrop and having the photographer photograph a group of individuals as they enter the event. This is a great way to encourage attendees to contribute their images after the event!
