Hiring the Perfect Photographer for your Special Eventby Miriam Portal
You’ve planned the perfect event and are ready to celebrate on this special day. Now, you need to find the perfect photographer or videographer to capture the priceless moments from this day, so you can relive them over and over long after your event has ended.
Photos, Videos or Both?
The first step in hiring the right photographer for your event is to figure out what you want. Do you want photographs of the entire event, or just video footage? Are you looking for a mix of photo and video? Deciding what you want is crucial to successfully choosing the right photography company, since different companies and photographers offer different services. The most common choices for event photography are photo and video, with more focus on candid, in-the-moment photographs of guests at the event.
Who is the right Photographer for YOU?
Next, you need to narrow down your search based on the type of event you are planning, and your budget. Certain photographers specialize in weddings and quinces, while others are more experienced in banquets and functions. You want to choose a company that is experienced in the specific type of event that you are hosting. In addition, you have to choose a photograph/video package that fits in your budget. Many photographers charge more for editing and retouching on photos, due to the time it takes them to deliver the final product. Also, the price will increase the longer the photographer is at the event and the more photographs they take.

Most importantly, whether it’s your wedding day or your child’s bat mitzva, you want to capture the fun and joy of your event so that you can remember it for years after.
