The Mission of Firefly Event Photography

The Mission of Firefly Event Photography.

When you are hiring a photography company for your students there are a few things that should be delivered. Please compare what we offer when compared to the other photography companies that are available.

As a photography company that looks to positively influence high school students, we believe.

1. All students should have access to excellent images at a low cost.
2. We should keep up with the technological times.
3. We shouldn’t highjack your image and charge an unfair sum of money for you to have it.
4. You should have 24 hour access to high resolution downloads.
5. Every student should get graduation pictures.
6. Secure images properly
7. Become a part of the community of the school.
8. Be of service to our school clients.
9. Provide timely information that helps students and schools improve.
10. Help every student feel important when they are in front of our cameras.

I believe that the money you spend with our company will be small in comparison to what you get in return. To me, it is no longer acceptable to not have a great photography product for all of our students, one that they can afford and one that adds value over decades not just one moment in time.

My mission as the founder of Firefly Event Photography is to capture and secure student’s images so that they can enjoy them well into the future.

Adding Real Value for Students at Prom (Homecoming and Graduation)!

Value Price vs. Hidden Cost for Prom Photography

As we have talked with many school sponsors it is astonishing how many don’t know how much pictures are actually costing their students. Many schools allow a particular company to come to their dance because they show up for “free” or for a minimal fee usually under $1000 but what they fail to realize is that it is costing your students more in the long run when compared to Firefly Event Photography’s innovative approach. This approach is dedicated to helping add value to student events while saving them a lot of money. Continue reading to see how Firefly Event Photography adds value and savings for high school students.

Technology & Education: Things Have to Change!

At Firefly Event Photography & Entertainment, LLC. we use technology to improve the opportunity for all students to have professional photography at every event where the memories are important. I can’t imagine where the world will be technologically in 20 years but if companies aren’t using current technology to deliver more professional images, faster and for a lower per person cost then the students are coming up short. I am still shocked when schools decide to use companies that haven’t changed much since I graduated in 1991. Technology is always changing and these processes can be used to better the events high school students enjoy.

FireflyEPE is here to make a difference. Professional photography should be available for every students. Students should also have the opportunity to take multiple images and have those images delivered fast. That’s what we do at Firefly Event Photography. We deliver more professional images than any other company and always include unlimited access and downloading without charging any extra fees.

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?

Firefly Event Photography & Entertainment, LLC believes that high school event photography should be creative, cost effective for all students and accessible for years. Our system helps every student feel like the homecoming king, prom queen and valedictorian.

Elements of the School Dance: The Pictures

“Everyone deserves a professional picture without it being hijacked for a high ransom”

There is nothing about your night that will last longer than the pictures. As our memeory fades of the night the images taken remind us of the great people in the school. This is a great opportunity for a school to add some separation from the old rubber stamping school dances of your rival down the road. Make your event great by having photo booths that are creative (not just a black background), plenty of photographers, and plenty of areas to take creative images. Then get on it! Once the music has stopped there are only memories and yet school committees aren’t working with companies that can handle capturing and securing them. Do you know how often a kid loses his phone, their computer dies or they mistakenly erase files? All those memories are down the drain so you can forget about #TBT (Throwback Thursday) years from now. Visit Firefly Event Photography http://www.fireflyepe.com for great solutions for your students.

Q: Are your attendees impressed with the picture company?
