“You had it totally together from start to finish.” –Carl Brunner
Our company event team works on every type of corporate event, no matter the size. We cover conventions, grand openings, trade shows, product launches, press conferences, ribbon cuttings, retirement and holiday parties, awards banquets, fundraisers, corporate meetings, training seminars, team-building events, picnics, as well as retreats.
We Focus on What’s Important to You. A corporate event photographer or videographer must use a different strategy for non-business events. We do not apply a cookie-cutter approach where we are wasting time covering the food or other frivolous elements. We focus on what is essential to the objectives of your particular event. Sometimes the focus is on individual people, groups of people, the opening of venues, gaining attention for tradeshow booths, and the actual events that are happening.

“The process came with no surprises.” –Sam Albritton
We Keep Things Moving and Don’t Cause Distractions. With our event plan, we know what we have to do at every stage of your function. We communicate with you so we can make any necessary adjustments on the fly, but we don’t take you away from your other duties or wear out your team. We get the job done without being in the way.

How long do you keep the photos you take? After delivering the final images, we back up and archive all the selected and delivered images, while all discarded images are deleted. We also strive to keep multiple backups of all final selections. But unfortunately, technology does fail from time to time. We cannot guarantee that we will be able to recover images forever. We strongly suggest that you also keep digital copies of your pictures in a safe, easy-to-find place. If at a later date you would like us to recover the images, there is a digital management fee.
