Frequently Asked Questions

Tell us more about you...

The team consists of David (Primary Photographer) and Emma (Photography assistant).

Drawing upon years of experience and an innate eye for detail, we bring a unique perspective to every project we undertake. As an Essex-based documentary photographer, we are committed to unveiling the subtleties and intricacies that define your events.

Our approach revolves around seamless integration into the scene, allowing us to capture the behind-the-scenes energy, fleeting interactions, and unscripted emotions that often go unnoticed.

Whether it's a corporate conference, product launch, or celebratory event, we thrive in translating the authentic essence of the occasion into a series of evocative images. With a dedication to professionalism, creativity, and storytelling, we are here to collaborate with you and ensure that your moments are transformed into a visual narrative that resonates profoundly.

Aside from events, what else can you photograph?

While we specialise in events, we also have experience in other types of photography including commercial (venue, hospitality, product, food etc), portraits and also wedding work. Please reach out to us with your requirements.

Where do you cover?

We are based near Colchester, but we generally cover Essex, Suffolk, Norfolk and beyond. We are happy to travel further based on your requirements.

How much do event photographers charge?

Our standard event pricing starts from £300 for a single-day event. Prices are dependent on the type of event, travel time, expenses, and estimated editing duration. It is normal for us to spend longer editing the photos than the actual shoot which is why the type of event is factored in.

If you are looking for a shorter photoshoot, we can arrange a half-day rate. For multi-day events, we may be able to offer a special rate.

Do you do staged group (non-candid) shots as well?

While we specialise in natural, candid photography, we understand there are times when this is not possible, or there may be a couple of shots that are needed outside of this style that can be accommodated. Any shots that need to be staged should be agreed upon in advance as this may require additional equipment.

How many photos should an event photographer take?

The amount of photos taken during an event will vary depending on the type of event and the amount of moments. It is normal to receive a minimum of 50 photos per hour of shooting, but if for example there is karaoke where people are coming on stage every 5 minutes, there will be many more opportunities for photos compared with a DJ playing on stage when there is no one on the dancefloor.

Our documentary style of photography lets us tell the story of your event with natural emotions. Taken from the view of your guests…
