Amazing Prom Memories for a Lifetime

Prom 2014 Image by Firefly Event Photography

Firefly Event Photography Prom 2014

Prom is just around the corner. Start your prom planning by connecting with the best high school event photographer in Florida, Firefly Event Photography.
We are a high volume photography company that helps high school event sponsors add long term value to yearly dances, special events, and graduations.

Currently, professional photography for high schools lacks creativity, is costly, and includes a lengthy turnaround time. These issues have created a frustration from students, parents and sponsors that live in a world where photos are abundant and they don’t have to wait weeks to view and enjoy.

Our unique system and team of photographers provide multiple opportunities for every student to enjoy professional photography without excessive costs. By working with Firefly, our sponsors enjoy a worry free service knowing that the morning after the event their pictures will be ready to view, share and download for free, for life.

The reason I’m so committed to helping high schools is because I’m a former teacher, and I have witnessed the neglect by other photo companies toward schools that didn’t seem lucrative enough for them to show up to their events. I have also witnessed an almost hijacking of images unless the family was willing to pay a large sum of money for a product that didn’t improve even as the technology did.

But when schools bring in firefly, every student feels like the homecoming king, prom queen or the valedictorian.

Creative Photo Booths for Prom

“Open Air” Photo Booths for Prom by Firefly Event Photography

Photo Booths are a great way to add fun to your prom or senior event but are you getting the best product for your hard earned cash? Here are four tips to make sure your students get the best photo booth product. BTW, Firefly Event Photography uses these strategies and a few more to bring the best images to life at any prom.

1. Open The Air: An “Open Air” photo booth is a backdrop that is lit by professional lighting. This helps deliver more options of fun when it comes to poses and size of props. By using this method a photographer must be capturing the images to properly crop to get the best result. While machine boxed booths are nice they rarely change the backdrop or back curtain. With open air you wan work with the photography company to pick the backdrop you prefer.

2. Save a Tree! Printing is wasteful and most print strips are cheap and get lost. Companies are forced to use cheaper paper and cheaper ink resulting in a cheaper product. Firefly only delivers online so everyone has a choice of what they want to print or download.

3. More people: Simply, there is more space with an open air photo booth. Your guests no longer have to cramp into a small booth. The open air style gives larger groups to take a better image when you have a 10 foot wide backdrop.

Adding a photo booth is a great idea. Make sure you are getting everything you need. Check prices, call companies, and ask to see what would be right for your event.

Follow us on Facebook or Twitter. Leave a comment about the post and tell us how the tips worked. We will be posting videos so follow our Youtube page here. http://www.youtube.com/user/FireflyEPE/videos?sort=p&flow=grid&view=0

Elements of the School Dance: The Food

“When in doubt, give ‘em Publix chocolate chip cookies!”

Light snacks, heavy food, beverages and a chocolate fountain, I have seen them all. My favorite? Pinwheels, man those are good. Homecoming dances usually draw a hungrier crowd than prom due to the meaning of the night. I know that kids won’t eat cookies all night something heavier may be needed. The food tends to round out the event. If you have worked a dance before you know kids will mow down some food. It’s always the smallest freshmen that are about to hit that growth spurt at the table packing it away. Mix it up, have plenty but don’t waste. Also having plenty of water is a must. Once that deejay gets crankin’ and those kids get to sweating you will need the hydration just from a safety perspective.

Q: Do you have plenty of water available?

Q: Is this an event where you need to go heavy or light with the food?

Q: Did you tell your purchasers what type of food will be there? You should so they know what to expect.

Top 5 Reasons for Using an Event Photographer at High School Dances

1.It’s 2013: If you haven’t noticed photography has changed. Have you been to a wedding in the last two years? Have you noticed that the photographer isn’t doing the same thing that was being done 10-15 years ago? Then why are you approaching your event photography in the same way? Your students deserve a modern approach to their special events. These events are just as important as weddings, births, milestones, and other celebrations. No one would want a photographer that showed up with the skills of the 1990’s photographer at their event.

2.Low cost per person: Using an event photographer offers students the opportunity for a lower cost per person when compared to the traditional bring a check/ prepay/ student must remember their money methods of years ago.

3.Multiple Images: Event photographers are great and highly skilled photographers. Event photographers excel in low light conditions, can maneuver to get a great shot, can work within large crowds and while focusing entirely on capturing the best image. By using your traditional photographer, their method takes the approach of sales person and photographer. This usually means a photographer that has been forced to be a sales person, stand in one spot and take a stagnant one image options all night. Event photographers move and capture images for the entire event to deliver more images than traditional methods.

4.Variety of Options Better Images: By using an event photographer you have a person/ company that understands photography and what it means to the individual. An event photographer works to capture the event at the highest level. When schools blow their budget on buildings and have very little money for the DJ or modern photography they are really hurting their students and the options for a great event. The event photography company can switch between the candid images, open air photo booth and formal backdrop option. Their skills are varied as to deliver the best for events. Your traditional photography company is only “decent” at portraits. But they are great at taking one image and letting that be it for your kids.

5.Your Students Grow Up! Your students will one day want to see these images. Event photographers understand the importance of the posed image and capture the event as is. These nostalgic moments should be available for your students as they become adults. If you work with a traditional company they purge files or have an archaic website to view images.

Elements of the High School Dance: The Deejay

“Music has the power to bring people together. You want even more togetherness? Play Cupid Shuffle”

A deejay has the hardest job. It isn’t easy pleasing a crowd of kids. Yet, the best do it with an ease that is amazing. Find that person and respect their developed talent. Always hire a talented deejay. Anyone can play music and crossfade but a deejay worth good cash is an artist that your students will enjoy. Their portfolio of mixes should be available for you to hear. They should have recent samples also. There is nothing worse than a deejay that stops practicing because of too much work. Even professional athletes need an off season. Find the person that will be the centerpiece to your event and isn’t afraid to “rock the crowd.”

Q: Are you purchasing on cost, talent, or service?

Q: What is the date on their latest online sample?

Q: Are they willing to come in and connect with your committee so they can make the best decision?
