If you're planning a party or other social event, have you considered booking a photographer to capture the event for you? You could take your own photos or expect the guests to take their own, but having a professional photographer on hand takes the pressure off everyone, and frees you to enjoy the event.
I have photographed parties for all ages (though last year was a particularly busy one for 40th birthdays), taking photos that capture the spirit of each event. So whether you like lots of posed groups, something more 'fly-on-the-wall', or a mixture of both, please get in touch to discuss your requirements. From my base in Sevenoaks I cover all of London and the South East.
