Photography for Bay Area small & intimate events

I’m the event photographer for you if:

  • The event venue is well-lit (no dark bars or restaurants)

  • There is no stage lighting. Panels and talks are totally fine! But when you get to the kind that has the audience in the dark and the stage lit up, you’ll want to book someone else.

  • You value the candid shots, such as the attendees mingling and having fun

  • You vibe with my photography style

I find smaller, intimate events to be my jam

Depending on your photography shot list needs, I can handle up to 50 attendees at an event. If it’s a flexible shot list, where you want to capture people interacting more than a set of group photos, then up to 100 is possible.

  • Latte art throwdowns

As a community organizer & coffee professional, I’ve organized and attended many events, including trade shows.

I know the work that goes into making sure everything runs smoothly. As your event photographer, my job is to take some worry off your hands so you can enjoy the fruits of your labor.

Event photography timeline

The timeline for event photography is a pretty straightforward one!

1. Fill out the photo inquiry form and enter the event date

Be sure to also include some details like where it is, what the event is, and what you’re looking for in photos.

2. Proposal, contract, reservation fee

Fill out the proposal with the event’s details, sign the contract, and pay 50% of the invoice to secure the booking.

3. Branding & shot list form

At least three weeks prior to the event, fill out the shot list form so I know what photos to take at the event. For more complicated events, we may have a call to discuss it.

4. Event date!

I arrive and take the photos we agreed on in the shot list. You relax and enjoy the event.

5. Pay invoice remainder

At any point before photo delivery, pay the remainder of the invoice. This needs to be paid before you can receive your photos.

6. Delivery!

Unless you paid for the expedited editing, you’ll be sent photos 2-3 weeks after the event. The online gallery will allow you to share and download the photos.
You also sign off on the project being completed, and I’ll ask for feedback. And that’s it, we’re done!
