Prom is one of the best times of year for a high school senior. It is full of beauty, elegance and charm. If you are stuck with very few ideas for prom here are three that I have seen in action and they were very nice.

1. Light Up Carriage: Nothing like a horse drawn carriage taking you to the venue of your senior prom. Of course you have to be in a location that offers this but most downtown areas have some sort of romantic transportation system.

2. Rose Petals at Her Feet: This was a shocker and a pretty special touch as the limo driver would open the door and drop rose petals before the female exited the vehicle. Pretty impressive and extra points for the date that thought this one up.

3. Sand Writing: If you live near the beach why not have a prepared message in the sand? There are many hotels on the beach where on can sit by the window for a great view. Two years ago we noticed that a couple had their names in the sand with “Prom 2010” included in the message. They stated that they got the idea from a beach wedding photo they viewed together on the internet. Pretty cool way to enjoy an evening.

Firefly Event Photography is 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.

Before the Prom: Photo Tips

Prom Image by Firefly Event Photography

Tips for Pre Prom Photography

So your pre prom images are important to you? Well here are three tips that will help you have the best images of your dress, tuxedo, group, or any important images before you get to the dance.

#1: Hire A Professional! Yeah, I am not a fan of the do it yourself theory when it comes to this stuff. Being a professional photographer that focuses on school events I know what to look for. Find a photographer that is willing to spend an hour with you. If you have a group of people maybe you could split the fees.

#2: Take A Photo Class! If you decide to have a novice take your images make sure they take a class. Usually your local community college has a short 5 week class that will improve shooter’s skills tremendously. Prom is kinda like a wedding, YOLO! Make sure the person is skilled enough to capture some great images.

#3: Watch YouTube! There are plenty of skills videos on the site. Have your novice photographer view some videos and practice.

If your photos are important to you make sure you find a professional photog with a good reputation. If you decide to use a novice just let them know early enough the images you would like to have taken so they can practice.

Tips for Creative Prom Photos

With a prom always just around to corner there is always a moment to pick up a few tips for capturing some memorable moments! Here are another three tips for creative prom images.

1. Zoom In: Take some shots of your face and hair while capturing just a part of the background. This will add another unexplored dimension to the night’s memories. The take close up images of other things that are just as important like jewelry, flowers and parts of your attire.

2. Shoot in Black and White: Changing some of your low light images to black and white images will help you see the contrast of the light source. If your camera can do this as you take a pic you can add dramatic effects to your images. See if you can get the glow of the spotlight behind you as you are dancing.

3. Use Different Angles: Don’t forget that there are many different ways to view a setting. See if you can take some images at different angles so that you add even more dramatic effect to the night’s captured images.

Want Excellent Prom Photos? Three Tips.

Prom Image by Firefly Event Photography

Prom Photos, Just Be You!

Here are another three tips for quality prom photos.

#1. Just Be You! C’mon this is going to be a fun night as long as you let it be so. Create the memories you desire! Relax and let your great personality show in your pictures.

#2. Don’t Photo Bomb! Now I am all for a funny pic but work to respect others at your prom by purposely staying out of the background of their image.

#3. Small Groups Work! Try to keep your group photos to 5 our less so that you get the best image possible. Unless you are dealing with a professional that is used to working with large groups of people you may want to avoid this possible time waster. Large group shots are awesome but don’t waste 10 minutes trying to get 16 people to pose and not bling for the perfect shot.

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.
