If you are planning an event in your home, and are also planning to sell your home, there are a few tips that could help you double up and save on both prospects. Why not hire a professional event photographer who can both capture the event for years to come and also get some beautiful shots of your home at its finest? This is just one of the out of the box ideas you’ll get only from an experienced real estate broker.

No, You Cannot Hire Any Photographer for Event Photography

For many people who do not work within the field, it seems as though anyone with experience in one artistic realm would be good in other artistic realms. This is not necessarily true. Just because someone took an excellent portrait does not mean they are good at event photography. This type of work requires that a photographer who knows how to work with large crowds, knows how to blend in to get the best shots, and has the professional photography equipment the job calls for.

You Are Getting a Lot More than Video for Your Money

If you think about your videography session as nothing more than a video product then you are not considering what you are really getting for your home. The photographer is providing time and labor during your event, before the event, and during post-production when they are editing your photos. They are bringing years of experience and specialized knowledge to your job.

Finally, consider all the equipment they bring. This equipment can cost thousands of dollars if you were to purchase it and hundreds of dollars to rent. We mention this because it is tempting to think that an event photographer shows up, spends a few hours at your event, and then gets paid. There is much more involved in the job.

Event Photographer Rates Depend on Experience and Other Factors

There are a number of factors that will go into the price of hiring an event photographer but their level of experience will be the main deciding point. You may be able to hire a student for a low fee but if they do not provide adequate work then you will have wasted money. Professionals and experts charge more but they get better results with less hassle.

Other factors that affect the price include how many pictures you want to be taken, how quickly you need the pictures back, how much retouching you want, and how far away the job is.
