Dallas Event Photographer

When it comes to photography, more specifically event photography, there can be a lot of myths out there. In order for you to find the right Dallas event photographer for your specific needs, it is important to be aware of the many myths that are out there. Today we will be looking at 5 Myths to Event Photography. Hopefully after reading this Dallas event photography blog, you will be able to confidently select your photographer for your upcoming events whether they are corporate events, private, grand or intimate.

Event Photography Myth #1

Events Do Not Need Event Photographers

This is one of the biggest myths out there so I thought I would tackle it first because I think event photographers are an integral part of your event planning process. For some reason people often do not consider event photography because they are so wrapped up in all of the details event planning can bring. People wrongly assume that they can get the sufficient photography they need from guests. Well, let’s just get this first myth out of the way now. If you are taking the time, effort and money to put on an event whether large or small, it is important to you and those attending. You have planned every last detail because each part of the event is critical. In order to capture the event, you need to invest in an event photographer. Yes your guests will take pictures but you need someone there whose sole purpose is to photograph this event that you have devoted yourself to!

 

Event Photography Myth #2

You Can Book a Great Event Photographer For Cheap

A rule to remember when you are dealing with photography of any kind: You get what you pay for. This is also true with event photography. Make sure to budget in the event photography just like you would any of the other details. Invest in a quality event photographer so that you can have beautiful and quality pictures to remember your event by.   

 

Event Photography Myth #3

All Event Photographers Are The Same

No matter what type of photography needs you have, it is critical that you do your homework on photographers before you hire someone. The same goes for selecting a Dallas event photographer. Spend time researching event photographers before you hire someone to capture your important event.

 

Event Photography Myth #4

Anyone Can Take Event Group Shots

Some of the most popular shots from events are group shots, also known as party pics. Throughout events guests constantly gather with friends, family and/or coworkers to have their picture taken. For your event photography you want to find someone who is trained in portrait photography and can move quickly to keep your quests happy. Leave your event group shots up to the professionals.

 

Event Photography Myth #5

Anyone Can Capture the Mood, Tone and Décor of an Event

Events require a lot of planning to create the desired atmosphere, tone and décor. You have placed a lot of effort into planning the perfect event for your guests including lighting, flowers, table settings, etc. Make sure you hire a Dallas event photographer who has both the eye and technical precision for all of your details. Hiring the right photographer allows for the tone of your event to be evident in the pictures.
