Summer Party Photographer

As summer is pretty much around the corner I thought I should revisit some of my previous work as a Summer Party Photographer. Summer is the perfect time for companies to celebrate their success and boost team morale with a corporate summer party. Whether it’s a casual outdoor BBQ or a more formal event at a scenic venue, a summer party is a great opportunity to bring your team together.

I was recommended Carmen by a colleague that had already worked with her in the past.
She did an amazing job at our boat event on the Thames and delivered high quality shots of the night right after the event.
All in all super efficient, professional, and definitely very kind. It was great working with her and I’d recommend her work in turn.

London Summer Party Photographer

There are so many different options to host a Corporate Summer Party in London, the venues are extremely versatile and those with outside spaces can have an hybrid venue so if there is a bit of rain on the day of your party, you have nothing to worry about as there are plenty of marquees!

Regent’s Events venue offers a great location with a marquee for your upcoming summer party

See for example the HAC Artillery Garden in the heart of The City of London, which offers a marquee and incredible grounds. It’s well hidden amongst all the skyscrapers, which makes it a real gem!

Should the weather be sunny you can host the drinks reception with the Barracks as your backdrop. There is even a fairground to keep your guests entertained.

There is also the Marquee, which in the event of some of some summer rain falling, will keep your guests dry and the party going! This venue is particularly great if your company is based in The City of London as it truly is in the heart of it.

When you hire my services as an event photographer for your summer party or any form of event my aim is always to capture it from the beginning till the end, from the moment that the guests arrive till they dance the night away – and all things in between! So when you look back at my photographs you can experience the entire event as if you were there again! My pictures will be the long-lasting keepsake of your party. That’s why I do believe that hiring a professional photographer for your party is an investment with an incredible return, that will last you over the years to come. Those photographs could be used over and over again for your marketing, internal communications, social media and many other forms of visual content. You can see more of my event photography here

As guests arrive they are usually welcomed with a drink, maybe a nice chilled beer or a very welcome glass of bubbles. There are also always summertime staples, such as a refreshing Pimm’s to welcome your guests upon arrival!

And more recently I have seen a new trend of the Aperol Spritz being a very welcome alternative

My aim is to capture all these details, but overall the guests – the people from your company having a great time, no matter if it rains or the sun is shining!

I will also include some wider shots to show the uniqueness of your venue of choice and the scale of the party. I work regularly with event planners and I completely understand the amount of work that goes on behind organising these parties, so I want to really show all the details as well as the care that has been put into every single detail. The venue is paramount and you might have spent days scouting for it so we need to see it!

But of course as well as photographing the venue, photographing the venue with the guests is super important! They are the life and soul of the party!
