Christmas Party Photography in Northamptonshire by Karl Drage

Christmas Party Photography

“It’s the most wonderful time of the year!”

From mid-November through to Christmas, most of my time behind the camera is spent performing Christmas party photography. While a lot of these bookings are repeat work year-on-year, there’s always time for building new relationships.

For many companies, large or small, Christmas parties are the one time everyone can get together and let their hair down. As a photographer, they’re some of my favourite events to shoot of the whole year!

They can also be a great excuse to incorporate an award ceremony (either serious or funny!) into the occasion.

Many hotels within Northamptonshire and the surrounding counties now host themed-Christmas party nights.

Throw in a magician or some other kind of entertainment, a live band and a DJ, and you’re on to a sure-fire winner.

The only thing missing is a Christmas party photographer to capture all the fun for you! That’s where I come in!

Pricing & What You Get

From arrival pictures and the drinks reception to the fun and laughter during the sit-down meal, all the way through to the party on the dancefloor.

My Christmas party photography rates start at £275 for a two-hour session. Additional hours can then be purchased at £110 per hour. So, for instance, a four-hour booking would cost £495 (£275 + 2x £110).

In return you get a password-protected web gallery containing all of the images I edit from the night in both colour and black & white, which of course you’re free to share with attendees and interested parties. From there, you also have the facility to download the high-resolution digital files. For an additional £25 (inc P&P) the files can also be sent to you on a generic USB stick.

If your venue is outside of Northamptonshire, you may be asked to contribute towards my travel costs.
