Your hard work and planning for the best activities/entertainment deserves the best in photo coverage.

When securing the best tour activities and quality entertainment for your events, why not make sure that the effect is captured?  Events are full of information, distractions, new faces, and great parties - let our documentation photographers cover the finest moments regardless of location, weather, lighting, or other challenges. As a team of talented photographers, we can cover simultaneous activities in various locations with ease.

The key to captivating visuals at your event?  A trained professional who can work with all forms of lighting, changing schedules, and a variety of needs all at the same time. We deliver you fast, fun, flexible photographers for all of your needs, and some unscripted moments no one expected. 

Coverage can include awards ceremonies, trade shows/exhibitors, sponsor recognition, candids, camaraderie, signage, atmosphere, speakers, engaged audiences, and much more.  Challenging lighting variations are easily tamed by our experience, and images can be ready fast for social media, gifting, and more.  We can also scale up to multiple shooters working simultaneously - even in multiple locations.


Quality entertainment made affordably – a visual montage of your experience to share.

Our history of providing excellent entertainment as custom slideshow montages and custom video highlight reels makes your event look great.  Simple highlight reels include silent loop shows provided daily up to multi-day shows set to custom music tracks designed to extract emotion and laughter.  We start by shooting in a style that works best on screen, then edit short and high-impact A/V productions to inform and entertain.  Video options include highlight reels, Speakers Corner testimonial capture, keynote speaker coverage, and more.  These options have never been more affordable thanks to digital technology, and editing can happen quickly.  Wrap up your event the proper way – by presenting the very best visuals of the people, parties, places, and more through the power of photography and video. 


Your resourcefulness in creating the perfect event deserves photography to capture it perfectly.

Wedding décor, custom build-ins, unique sets, staging, special models, florals, ice sculpture, and more original ideas – these are the hallmarks of how you differentiate yourself from others.  It’s important to work with experienced photographers to capture your vision in the best possible light.  Our décor & set images have helped our clients win countless awards, land massive new contracts, and help them one-up the competition.  When presenting to or thanking sponsors, potential clients, and more, give your sales team the resources they need for expanded success.
