Feedback Needed: Animation Script For Our Prom Photography

We are looking to do an animation script for our prom photography and would like your feedback on if the following words deliver a visual as you read the information.

Feel free to share constructive advice so we can deliver the best animation to our potential clients in the near future.

1. It’s prom planning time and if you are like other sponsors you have a budget based on the number of tickets you will sell at a certain price.

2. This budget includes things like the venue, decorations, DJ, and food.

3. If there is any leftover then you may look at a gift for the students that attend in the form of something labeled, or something you can put in their hand.

4. Most schools take the little excess and add a trinket that has impact but no lasting value.

5. At the end of the night when you have spent your entire budget, what do your students have left over?

6. The DJ has pulled the plug, the venue has locked the doors, the photo booth is packed away and you may be stuck with boxes of leftover trinkets that kids don’t want.

7. At Firefly we deliver years of lasting value with our photography system that is accessible to all students at your event.

8. At Prom our photographers capture as many images as your students desire and provide an online gallery to view, share and download the picture.

9. Your students get to create the memories they want with the people they enjoy the most without worrying if they are going to wait two weeks to get images, loose the paper strip from the photo booth machine, or pay extra sums of money per image.

10. It’s time your students had a one-time pay service that lasted longer than a few weeks.

11. Firefly delivers hundreds of images for one payment within 24 hours. Your students never have to worry about losing images or paying extra fees down the road. Access and unlimited downloading never expire.

12. Firefly Event Photography: Helping every student feel like the homecoming king, prom queen or valedictorian.

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.

Prom Photo of the Day: Too Cool!

Too Cool! Prom Photography by Firefly Event Photography

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.

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.
