Party & Event Photography

Are you throwing a party, and need an affordable photographer to capture the fun?


Whether it's a 21st birthday, a 50th, an engagement party, baby shower, gender reveal party or celebration, you should be enjoying your event, not worrying about taking photos.

Event photography prices:

$125 per hour of photography (inclusive of editing time). Minimum of 2 hours. For events less than 2 hours, please see my standard photoshoot rates.

Optional extra: Photobooth props

For an additional $20 fee, I can bring a suitcase of props to set up a photobooth area to help break the ice at your event. A blank wall area works best. I take the images with a DSLR camera and they are included with the remainder of your images. Note: this is not an instant print photobooth and doesn't include a backdrop.


Event photography packages include all the best images edited and sent to you online via We-Transfer - high resolution suitable for printing on canvas.


Photos are sent within 1 week of the event, but most receive their edited photographs within 24 hours.
