5 Key Factors to Consider when Hiring an Events Photographer

Updated: Jan 29

Your event is coming up, you need an events photographer...but you just don't know what to look for, don't worry, its normal!

When you book an events photographer for your party, or festival...there's a few things to consider.

  1. Does their photography style suit you, or the brand you need it for?

  2. Does their photography style capture the event as it should be seen, just because a style may be catchy, doesn't mean it actually captures an event the way it should be.

  3. Are the photographers photos in their portfolio limited, do they show you 1 or 2, or does the photographer actually show you a range of photos and styles.

  4. Can you work with the photographer, are they fun to work with, have they got the character and personality for your event?

  5. Are they the photographer that shoots group photos, or do they stay out of the way and capture real engaging moments?

These are just some points that are really important...the truth is, don't fall for the promises of 1000 or 3000 images from your event, you don't need them. The truth is, 500 photos is a LOT!

This is one of those topics that, less, is more!

Also, make sure the event photographer you booking has shot events before, different events...although they may not match your exact event, they have captured events from festivals to corporates, to bands...this shows their range and ability to work under changing environments.

Once you've answered all the above questions to your satisfactory...then you've probably found your photographer.

With that said, here's just a few random highlight festival photos from the fun, jam packed, Portuguese Festival called The Caravela.

And yes, from Prime Circle, to Bernice West, Bobby van Jaarsveld and so much more, this is one amazing festival you don't want to miss!
