Why Hire Christopher Todd for my event photography?
Planning will be easy.
I have a streamlined process from our first contact through logistics/ pre-production, execution, and delivery of images to help you dedicate less resources to photography planning freeing you up to work on more challenging aspects of your event.
Professional attire and behavior.
Ever have a someone show up in blue jeans and tennis shoes to photograph your CEO giving out a special award?
Or worse...not show up, or not follow an agenda to capture the images you needed. I'll stop short, but this list could go on and on. My team and I will always return calls, arrive on time, dress appropriately, listen to you, and put in 110% to get the images you want.
My number one goal is to make your client happy. Amazing images are a given, however, we really think it's the little things that make a difference, like being prepared, flexible, learning people's names, and generally being friendly to all clients, guests, and vendors at an event.
Image is everything
Your image, reputation, and future depend on sound marketing strategies. For any message to be understood it first has to be seen. In the new era of social networks, and sharing instead of selling, good photography can communicate your message to the public, your employees/clients.
Better Photos equals more ROI
You want to get the maximum ROI from your event. You want donations to be higher than last year. You want to generate more impressions, or hits, or likes. Getting a message out there to resonate or go viral simply take amazing photos.
Once I connect with you or your client. We just need to get the pertinent details like locations, dates, and times. An in-depth quote based on our communications will be sent to you within 24 hours. To secure our services we require a signed contract and deposit.
After we have connected with you, we typically get an idea of the clients goals, and expectations. We take care of the strategy, and logistics to turn your images into reality.
At this point you will finally shake hands with one of our photographers, and see our plans go into action. Our professionals will be focused on your list of goals set forth during pre-production. They will be on time, dressed appropriately, extremely professional, and very friendly, and ready to modify their plan if the need arises.
Whether it be image retouching, onsite printing, rush uploading, or gift prints for your guests. We keep you in the loop with our post production schedule to deliver amazing images on time.
