Having your function recorded by professional photographers, makes the memory of it, and the effort put into it all, so much more special and worth it. Event photography is somewhat more “raw” as it is moments captured right there and then, moments that could probably never be recreated, and usually these are events are once in a lifetime situations, like an important conference, or a 21st birthday party. On those evening or during those events one thinks of about everything but taking some photographs, and to have a professional take them, take that burden off of the organizer, hostess or the person who’s party it actually is.
We use professional cameras at the studio that are able to handle low lighting conditions, and we use external flashes to assist us in the correct exposure of all sorts of lighting conditions. The light in conference halls, restaurants etc are usually low, and we would want to expose especially skin tones perfectly as to not have it look unnatural.
Having the photos taken by professional photographers, is a good investment as it will definitely have you look at them in years to come, and have only good memories remain.
