Corporate Event Photography

The problem with event photography is that it can be quite costly. Ranging anywhere from $1300 to $4000 the pricing can add up quickly. Event photography though is more than someone walking around and taking pictures and then a week later getting them emailed to them. Event photography can be a photo booth with social media sharing. Event photography can be a social media wall where people take photographs and hashtag them up to a giant mosaic. Your event is important and that’s why it is important to hire the right person. This person could be working with everyone from spouses all the way up to the senior vice president.
