Event Photography

 

I photograph with the following in mind…

We work closely with you during the consultation to get aligned with the intention you have for the photographs. Do you desire sponsors, funding, a new website, social media posts to last a year, advertising, newsletters, calendars, etc.? This helps us really focus on what kind of approach we take your time is

with photographing your event.

We photograph the ones that helped make the event possible: volunteers, sponsors, attendees, vendors. Showing them appreciation through the photography is one of the best things you can do. Coverage for social media, website, thank you cards, etc. See more in the “How Clients Use Our Images” section.

We focus on the joy of your event. Whether it’s the mom that gets to relax on the rock with the harbor in the background or the kiddo chasing bubbles.

We believe that food is a big part of an event so we make sure to not only photograph the food but the people making the food and the attendees enjoying it, too.

We look for the friendships, the families, the ones who came to the event to get time together.

  • High quality files, as well as low-res perfect for quick upload to webpages and social media channels.
