About Booking Photographers
Compare and hire Event Photographers for Weddings, Parties, and Events on GigSalad, the event planners resource.
Hiring an event photographer is a great way to capture important moments on film at your next event. Whether you need a social photographer to capture the magical moments of your wedding or a corporate event photographer to create a snapshot of your convention, tradeshow, or exposition, GigSalad will connect you with a local event photographer to help capture the special moments of your next party, wedding, or corporate event.
First and foremost you must find an event photographer with a style you like. Ask to see a sample of their previous work. Are they more traditional photographers who take snapshots of formal poses, or do they prefer spontaneous artsy shots? If you want some more creative effects, check if they offer black and white or sepia tone options. Next, ask to view the package options. Be sure there is an option that suits your needs. If not, they may be able to create a special package for you. When it comes to proofs and prints, get an approximate availability date and ask whether you get to keep the prints and about online availability. Most photographers will also offer special matting and album options as well. Lastly, be mindful of your budget and check the details in the contract about any cancellation and refund policies on the photography services.
