Prom Night Photography

Prom nights are really getting popular. They are a great way to celebrate the end of year and a chance to dress up and feel special. Our Prom night photography is a way to remember the occasion.

We are happy to attend your prom night and set up our mobile studio. We have a large white screen as well as professional studio lighting to get a wonderful photograph of the guests in small groups or with their partner. We are also set up to make prints on the night (within minutes) which is mounted and presented in a protective film bag. A percentage of sales will be given to the organiser. You can rest assured that we are fully covered by Public Liability insurance.

After the event we can post the images from the night into a special password protected gallery so family members can log in and purchase duplicate images or enlargements. We are also able to offer stunning laminated canvas prints, stretch wrapped and ready to hang and beautiful elegant acrylic panels which make wonderful wall art.

We can also take documentary photos of the event should you require this service!

We have experience of photographing many such events previously at venues such as Crannage Hall, Wychwood Park and Crewe Hall. We can also cover guest speak-speaker events where guests can be photographed with the guest speaker and have their image signed on the night as well as black tie balls or corporate events! Please feel free to get in touch to discuss how our event photography can help you raise extra funds at your event!

Review of the Year – 2011 – Part Four

2011 was also a special year for our wedding photography. We got to share and document the special day of Emma & Ben, Jane & Tom, Kate & Matthew, Michelle & Matthew, Sarah & John, Emily & Mike and Joanne & John. We visited some wonderful venues and had a great time photographing all of them! A few highlights were the 50s theme, the Glastonbury Festival theme and the helicopter ride for the bride and groom to Crewe Hall!

We’re looking forward to lots of weddings in the new year, and have quite a few already booked in!

I was also honoured to be asked by Cheshire East Council to be involved in two big events. The first was the Centenary week of celebrations at the Lyceum Theatre. I was the official photographer for the week of events and photographed the performances that were put on in celebration and also photographed the buildings interior which is an amazing building and also the exterior when it came to life for the magnificent Illuminos Project, a fantastic light show telling the history of the building.

The second event was being asked to sit on the judging panel for a photography competition covering various categories designed to encapsulate Cheshire East in picture. The standard of entry was very high and choosing the various winners was not an easy task! It was inspiring to see so many great images of Cheshire!

We have also been up to lots of kids photography. From some lovely monochrome newborn photography through to babies and toddlers and through to some great shoots with older children. Lots of patience leads to some very rewarding images!

I was also pleased to produce the mayoral portrait for the Worshipful Mayor of Crewe in the Municipal Buildings mayoral portrait.

We’ve also kept busy with lots of product and commercial shoots. A great way to spruce up a website!!

All the best for 2012!
