You can book hourly after that, and most people are happy with 3 or 4 hours but I’m happy to help you decide.

How it works

A few frequently asked questions about 50th birthday party photography

Most people haven’t booked a party photographer before, so if you’re unsure about anything don’t worry, I’m very friendly and there’s no silly questions! Here’s a few I’m often asked before booking, and if there’s anything else you’re wondering just drop me a line and I’ll be happy to help.

How do I get a quote and book it in?

Just send me your date, location, and timings, and we’ll work out a package with everything you need. I’ll send over a booking form and once you’ve paid the reservation fee (deducted from the total) your 50th birthday party photography is all booked in. The balance is due a week after the party.

How long should I book you for?

It really depends what you’re planning, who’s coming, where it is, etc. For example, parties in a private bar may only need two or three hours; if you’re having drinks and dinner four hours may be better. Let me know and I can help you decide.

What actually happens on the day?

I’ll arrive early to say hello… and then you can pretty much leave me to it! I’ll try to fit in around you as much like a guest with a camera as possible, looking for all the big moments, and the little ones you might have missed. No need to keep posing, just forget about me and enjoy your 50th birthday party!

We don't like posing, is it all candid?

Yep, it’s all candid, unless you want to get a few formal group shots before the party gets started (let me know when you book so it’s included in the timings). Other than that I won’t ask guests to pose for me, although if anyone asks for a quick snap as I’m passing it’s no problem!

When do we get the photos?

Your private gallery of finished photos is usually ready up to a week later, often sooner, and you can share it with all your friends and family. You’ll be able to download your digital archive, choose favourites for a book, and order prints and other gifts, right there in the gallery.

Can you recommend any photo booth companies?

I’ve worked with some great booths, so if you’d like some suggestions just ask. Photo booths work really well with my style of 50th birthday party photography – guests who want a posed shot can get one in their own time, while I focus on all those lovely candid moments.
