If you are planning a corporate event or company gathering of any sort, South Florida is a great place to host it! With its endless selection of venues – both on the water and off, everyone will appreciate South Florida events in your business. Many people who attend corporate events in South Florida also bring their families and make a whole vacation out of it by extending their trip to enjoy everything there is to enjoy here.

Aloha Theme Events are very popular here in South Florida. The photo below was taken at a special event in West Palm Beach. Attendees played golf During the day and were treated to an Aloha Theme Event at night.

We offer corporate and event photography and video coverage for all types of events and activities including awards galas, corporate sporting events (such as golf), sales and marketing meetings, team building activities and much more. Having professional photography and/or video coverage of your events is a great way to share the experience with all employees and have a great record of everything that was achieved during the get-togethers.

Corporate events in South Florida are unique in the sense that we have many beautiful beach areas here that can be utilized in various ways – beach parties and games and as a wonderful spot for a large group photo. We have often been called upon to shoot an overhead group shot with our drone. The companies usually have a professional company write something in the sand such as their company name or a message and then we position all the employees around that for the shot.

As a South Florida event photographer, I have seen all kinds of corporate events and special acts. One popular entertainment act here is to have synchronized swimmers at an event. It’s something we can do here year round, so it has become popular with corporate events and parties to feature this type of entertainment. Some corporate parties have elected to have us shoot portraits of guests usually against a special backdrop they create and then print out the photos that night and give them to the guests in custom frames or folders. This is a really nice souvenir or take-away for the attendees. People seem to love this goodie.

BELOW: Photographing convention speakers is one of the top assignments a special event photographer will be required to handle. To do this well requires skill and timing. The key is to get a photo of the speaker looking good while he or she is lecturing. If the photographers timing is off then the photographer will get the speaker making a funny face. You can't just take one photo of the speaker with his or her tongue hanging out. The photographer has to keep shooting until the perfect image is captured. One word of caution. If the photographer shoots too much then the speaker may become distracted or annoyed. The skill is in getting the right shot with the least amount of distraction

For any sort of corporate gathering, it is a great idea to contact an experienced South Florida event photographer to capture all the moments. Your attendees and your boss will definitely appreciate it. Whether it’s a beach event, a sporting event, or events that are entirely indoors, capturing all the activities is a definite plus. We always photograph lots of groups of people so that the attendees are accounted for, plus the speakers and all of the main event features. Often companies will request that we prepare a selection of photos to be shown the next day in a slideshow. It really gets the people pumped to see themselves on the screen along with other colleagues. We are also always sure to photograph the details – whether it’s the décor, food, prizes, awards – whatever it might be.

Given that South Florida is an ocean / beach culture, many special events have synchronized swimmers as entertainment. This photo was taken during a special event at Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort.

If necessary, we will be happy to help you find the perfect location for the type of event you will be hosting.
