Common Types Of Event Photography
Conference & Convention Photography
We often photograph Conferences and conventions at the Long Beach Convention Center or the Anaheim Convention Center in Orange County. Most event planners want us to document important parts of their event so they can use the images for newsletters, social media with the purpose of marketing the event for the following year. Candid images with attendees interacting are always highly requested by our clients.
Awards ceremonies are popular events to photograph. We have captured awards presentations at venues across Orange County and Los Angeles. Oftentimes our clients need a fast turnaround for our images of award recipients so they can send them a digital copy. The best awards photos happen when the winner is truly surprised to win, and the emotion is visible on their face.
Awards presentations are usually highlighted events of multi-day conferences or conventions when attendees are excited.
Themed & Holiday Parties
We have much experience photographing holiday parties at hotels and resorts in Orange County. Office Holiday parties are popular from November to January when the year starts to wind down and people get into a festive spirit.
Most clients want images of guests enjoying themselves, couples' formal portraits, gift exchanges, or awards presentations. The best holiday party images are candids of guests having fun.
Grand Opening Events
Grand opening photography usually involves a large party with live music, DJ, bars, and dancing. Some grand openings have a ribbon-cutting ceremony to kick off their event. The best grand opening events spare no expense and throw a huge party.
Large grand opening events create many chances for great photos of people mingling, socializing, and interacting with VIPs or executives involved in the event. We typically get requests for candid photos of important people such as political officials or business leaders interacting with guests and having fun.
Galas Non-Profit & Charity Events
Our event photographers can capture your party, auction, or fundraiser. We focus on your needs whether it be journalistic coverage, detail/ decor, or amazing portraits of your executive team, largest donors, or invited celebrities.
Why Companies Hire Event Photographers
Companies use event photographers for award ceremonies, banquets, company picnics, team-building exercises, galas, social events, corporate parties, annual conferences, meetings, and fundraisers. We come out to your event and document it through candid photos, of employees, speeches, guests, entertainment, red carpet photography, and keynote speakers.
What Are Corporate Photos Used For?
