Elements of The High School Dance: The Student Feedback

“Sweaty from dancing, full from eating, and face hurting from smiling. If you see these three things then no words are necessary!”

The best compliment we received as a company was in our follow up review with the dance committee a student said “man my legs still hurt from all of that dancing.” That is what you want to hear. Compliments don’t have to be “thank you” they can be a really sweaty group of kids heading home for the night laughing it up. Watch the mannerisms of your attendees. Can you see the fun on their faces? Can you hear the excitement once back at school on Monday? Are they ready to have another dance? You will hear these things if you did the aforementioned categories correctly. Each and every school is different. There are no cookie cutter ways that work. The sponsor has to get the committee to understand that delivering an excellent event is their job. Once you deliver a great night, take a bow. You just made everyone’s year!

Q: What is the best compliment you or your committed has heard?

Q: What slight adjustments do you need to make to improve your event?

Q: Did your committee thank the student body publically for supporting the event?

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.

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.
