Pasadena boasts many professional photographers that can be hired to capture memorable events on film, whether they are proms, company picnics, weddings, or other functions. Before comparing package prices, it's important to figure out a rough timeline for a function's happenings. Each function will require different announcements, dining arrangements, and entertainment.

Photographic Styles

For example, a company or corporate event will need much different photography services than a traditional wedding. Many photographers specialize in one area of expertise when shooting special events, so it's a good idea to seek out the appropriate individual or service. Some companies employ several photographers, but an event planner is wise to interview individuals separately since they will likely use varying styles.

Browsing portfolios and surfing the Web can provide plenty of ideas and inspiration if one is unsure of which style would work best for the occasion. Many photography companies maintain websites complete with samples of previous work, and these can help to clarify one's own style preferences. Some services will allow you to compare photographers as well as DJs, limo services, event planners, and more--going through a single locator source is recommended in order to cut down on hassles. After the possibilities are narrowed down, it's time to choose the right service and package for the preset photography budget.

Many companies will offer a range of products, from a custom-designed package to a standard package with a set number of shots and prints. Typically, a consultation with the photographer will help determine the best option for the particular situation. A written contract with all the details will ensure that a photographer stays within appropriate parameters, with any charges for extra prints or overtime fully explained.
