Our Event Photography Services

Capturing the moments that matter

Event photography for every occasion

Yalding Media is your go-to event photography service provider in London. Beautiful event photography is our speciality. Photographs serve as cherished memories of your event and can also be shared on social media or in personal messages for those who couldn’t attend. In the corporate world, event photography can be a powerful marketing tool, showcasing the success of a company’s events. The presence of a photographer and flash lights can also add drama and theatre to any occasion.

Yalding Media has a wealth of experience capturing all types of events. We primarily serve corporate clients who require our services for awards ceremonies, gala dinners, black-tie business events, conferences, as well as Christmas and summer parties. We also enjoy taking photographs at family gatherings such as birthdays and bar-mitzvahs.

Our approach to event photography

No matter the size or type of event, we strive to achieve the best results. We capture a variety of photos, including group shots, portraits, candid photos and action shots. Our photographers are highly skilled working in fast-paced environments, capturing the emotions and mood of the moment.

We believe that effective communication with clients and subjects is crucial to understanding their needs and preferences and conveying our own ideas and vision. Our photographers have excellent communication skills and are adept at building rapport with clients and subjects to make them feel comfortable in front of the camera.

Experience and expertise

We have worked in a variety of venues in London and other European capitals: From large conference and banquet halls to more intimate settings like members clubs, embassies, nightclubs and private homes. We have developed techniques to work in complex environments, particularly in low-light conditions and can create sophisticated setups with flashlights to get photos with natural-looking light.

After the event, we spend several hours carefully selecting the best pictures and editing them in image-optimisation software to turn the raw photos into polished, finished products. Time is of the essence, which is why we offer fast turnaround times to ensure our clients receive their photos promptly.
