Event Photography Investment

What is an event? According the Cambridge online dictionary, an event is “anything that happens, especially something important or unusual.”

Event photography must be story-telling in its nature by capturing something that is “important” or “unusual”.   In this sense, event photography could be one of the main legacies of the event. People that view the images must be able to understand the story behind the event. For those that were not able to attend the event, these images may be the only way to connect to this event.  One of the first goals of my event photography is to tell the story and capture the key elements of the event.

Events can be family-centric things like birthday parties, family reunions and celebrations. Events can also be business-oriented like customer appreciation events and corporate employee events.  Events can be community based like school, charity, and sporting events.

Each of these types of events are different.  Before the event happens, we will discuss the schedule and any important requirements and goals of the event to ensure that my event photography correctly tells the story and meets your vision.  I can customize my coverage and product offering based on your specific requirements.  

I do offer a few standard Raleigh area birthday party/event photography packages:

BASE Birthday Party/EVENT Package: ($325*) includes:

  • Pre-birthday/Event consultation to make sure that I cover what you need and discuss ideas for the party/event. This can be done in-person or over the phone.
  • Photography time:  2-1/2 to 3 hour “story telling/candid” photography coverage within the Raleigh area.
  • Online Gallery: I will select only the best images from the session.  I will touch up, color correct and sharpen these images and place them in an online gallery (password protected if desired) on http://photos.stevejackle.com for ordering various print and image products .  This ensures that you only see the best images from the event and they are ready to order.
  • Note: Images are purchased separately with this package using special event pricing. 
  • Note: The online gallery will expire 30 days after it has been created.     

*All package prices are subject to change without notice. Please contact me to confirm the latest package prices. These prices are based on event style “story telling/candid” photography.  Please contact me for custom pricing to include setup portraits during the event as these type of shots may require additional equipment and time. 

Note: All packages and services are subject to NC state sales tax.

If these standard packages do not meet your needs, please contact me for a custom package and quote for your next event.

Looking forward to working with you,
