You worked hard to plan your event.

Don’t let bad pictures ruin it.

It takes a lot of work to plan an event. But how the event is captured and promoted is also important, which is why you need professional event photography to ensure your well-planned event is well captured.


Raleigh | Durham Event Photography: FAQ

Q: How much is event photography and what does it include?

A: Event photography is $150 per hour with a two-hour consecutive minimum. The best photos will be selected by the photographer for electronic delivery, usually within 24-48 hours. Edits on location, or a hard drive with photos directly following the event, can also be arranged.

Q: There are other event photographers around. Why should I hire you?

A: Stan started out as a photojournalist, and has shot hundreds of events over his career, from breaking news to conferences. So he is well experienced in capturing live-action, candid moments, and other event photography needs.

Q: Can I have specific people/things shot?

A: Of course. It would be best to provide a shot list prior to the event to ensure all requests are met. 

Q: How many pictures will I receive?

A: We average about 50-75 per shooting hour, which depends on the amount of event activity.


Q: Will I need to leave a deposit?

A: A 50% deposit is needed in order to place your event on StanChambersJr Photography’s calendar. Final payment is due no more than two weeks before the event. Note: If the event is canceled within a week before the event date, the full balance must still be paid.

Q: My event is outside the Triangle region. Do you travel?

A: We travel domestic and international for events. Any event more than two hours from Durham, N.C. (per Google Maps) will involve an additional investment for mileage/flight and hotel.

Q: Can I purchase the raw images?

A: For clients, raw images are useless because they need to be processed in order to create a final image. Asking for the raw image is like asking your favorite clothes maker for an extra bag of cotton on the side. Clients often ask for raw images because they feel that they’re missing something, but professional photographers are able to turn raw images into beautiful high-resolution photos.
