The Dos and Don'ts of Event Photography

Written by Phillip Van Nostrand, wedding & hospitality photographer

If you host events, there are a few steps you go through every time you start planning. Creating a floor plan, getting food and beverage ironed out, having some sort of entertainment and, most likely hiring a photographer. While hiring a photographer may seem like an obvious and simple task (find someone who takes pictures, pay them for a couple of hours, done), there can be a lot of nuances to doing it well.

Having a bad photographer on your event can be frustrating, annoying and disappointing, not to mention make you look bad. On the other hand, having an exceptional photographer on your event can actually enhance the event. Here are some dos and don’ts for both planners and photographers alike to ensure your event is covered properly every single time.
