ENTERTAINMENT & EVENT PHOTOGRAPHER
7 Event Photography Objectives
Las Vegas is the city of mind-blowing events. That doesn’t mean all events feature a tiger juggling fiery chainsaws…but some do. As an event photographer in Las Vegas, we cover arena stadium events. We cover birthday parties and everything in-between. Some event photographers may record what they see, but intentionality will create a complete photo package. As an event photographer in Las Vegas, we focus on 7 objectives for every photography assignment.
#1 Event Photography in Las Vegas – The Complete Package
Firstly, we have an ambition to be the best event photographer in Las Vegas by capturing the best event summary. Events large and small, are the result of hours, days, weeks and sometimes years of planning. In most cases, multiple companies and brands are involved in each event. A successful event is aided by the collaboration of services like catering and floral decor. Additionally, they utilize beverage, wait staff and audio visual, to name a few. To accurately represent the event planning efforts, our event photography demonstrates an awareness of all involved parties.
Sponsorship Event Photographer
Many events are made possible through sponsorships. These sponsor companies are eager to have their brand displayed in front of everyone who attends the event. Types of visual collateral include directional signage, branded decor, napkins, shirts, hats and digital signage. Some brands deploy innovative visuals like branded cocktail ice cubes, 3D mapping projections, cake builds and ice sculptures. Key Lime Photography captures event sponsorship photos as a way to document the activation. Documentary images like this are sometimes called “proof of performance.” This type of photo could be captured with a cell phone. However, we photograph the collateral in a way that demonstrates integration into an environment. In other words, we treat sponsorship as if it’s the hero of the event. In a way, it is the hero. Creating heroic sponsorship photos also gives the sponsor beautiful images that they use for social media content. If McDonalds shares a photo of your event on their social media feed, everyone wins.
Hired entertainment is often the heart of an event. As an event photographer in Las Vegas, we capture entertainment photos that embody the energy of a performance. A photo of Lindsey Stirling is going to look different than a photo of Jewel. Nevertheless, each will reflect the ambiance that the performer conveyed onstage. Secondly, we produce images that feel like suspended animation. In other words, the photo leaves you wanting to hear the next note, the beat drop or cymbal crash. Event photos that hold viewers in this moment of heightened anticipation, make for impactful memories. Moreover, they are great for social media recap content and marketing photography.
Staff Event Photographer
Events don’t run themselves. After the planning phase, events require a team of helping hands to make sure all guests’ needs are met. Mostly, this core team is not hired but made of the staff from the organization that is hosting the event. Simply put, they are paid in pride. After shooting many corporate events as an event photographer in Las Vegas, we can safely say the host staff enjoys their work. It is a pleasure to capture their smiles, teamwork and engagement with guests. Sharing staff photos at the end of an event is definitely one of the most rewarding aspects of being an event photographer.
We always make sure to include event architectural photography in our event package. Capturing the venue allows the event planner to reflect on their choice. If the event is held annually, the venue photography will be a valuable tool. It helps event planners decide whether to use the same venue again, or look for other options. The event planner may also choose to share the event photos with the venue. When venues share beautiful images on social media, it creates added exposure for the event host, the event itself, and for the brands involved.
Event Food and Beverage Photography
Food and beverage photography is a big part of being an event photographer in Las Vegas. Not only do people enjoy social noshing in general, but Las Vegas is the epicenter for world renowned chefs. Inevitably, exquisite cuisine finds its way to the serving trays of many corporate events. Key Lime Photography specializes as a food photographer between events. For this reason, we apply food photography knowledge and experience to our event photos. A quick snapshot would document the food served at a corporate reception. However, it’s best to create images that evoke the experience of tasting the food at the event. We have knowledge of revealing the temperature, texture and colors of the cuisine. In this way, Key Lime Photography creates the best possible image with the least amount of production equipment. In other words, we can collect photos of sponsorships, entertainment, guests and food in a matter of seconds. For magazine and menu-quality hero images, we recommend booking a separate food photoshoot.
