With Halloween just behind us in NYC, thoughts are turning to Thanksgiving and the Christmas holiday season. Hence, now is the time to book a great NY City professional photographer to cover your company’s holiday or Christmas party. An experienced corporate event photographer like Teri would capture great memories for everyone to enjoy.
Party and corporate event photography involves documenting the party decor and details, candid photos of the guest, toasts and of course fun shots of people relaxing and having a great time!

Travel and tourism professionals attend lots of business conventions in NY City, where important media and industry connections are made. After presentations are made, festivities often included gourmet food, wine tastings and keynote speeches by leaders in the field.
This public relations candid photo was taken at a recent event to publicize an African resort. The evening’s main attraction included a gallery of over 100 posters celebrating Nelson Mandela’s life, created by artists around the world.
NY City turned out by the thousands for Gay Pride 2016 and to pay homage to the beautiful souls lost in Orlando. A gorgeous day full of festivity, fun, camp and rainbow flags showed the world again what a great place NYC is.
Because NY City is home to so many international businesses, corporate financial conferences & meetings are held here daily. Usually the services of a professional photographer experienced in conference & meeting photography is hired. As a NYC photojournalist, I enjoy this type of special event photography because the photo coverage is journalistic and unposed.
First I’ll shoot wide shots of the room to document the setting. Then cover a variety of wide angle shots of the panels, as well as close-ups of the individual speakers. Often there is a networking lunch or break-out sessions on specific topics, which is a great time for casual photos that often end up in social media.
All corporate special events are a great networking opportunity for participants, often afford an expense-paid trip to New York City, and are a win-win for all participants who seek to learn more and become experts in their fields.
Rockefeller Center has got to be one of the most exciting venues to hold a corporate party, and offers its guests among the most spectacular and special views in midtown Manhattan. The space hosts between 300-500 people and the Sea Grill serves delicious food.

It was STILL Halloween — yet the Gap and the Container Store had already transformed to Holiday & Christmas signage. A reminder that while its still late autumn, its not too soon to make plans for your corporate holiday party and hire a professional event photographer.
One of the most fun and lively corporate holiday parties was hosted by a tech company here in NY City, with many of the employees competing to win “the tackiest Christmas sweater” of the evening. It was a great evening with lots of holiday cheer.
Posing with friends in front of the “step and repeat” banner has become a staple of event photography in NY City. Guests love posing with their friends and seeing the shots on social media.
At this party, the client had an assortment of fun props that were used during these portrait photos. My favorite one is shown in this photo, using a large frame with an opening for the guest’s faces.
“Step & Repeat” photos are always a highlight in corporate event or non-profit gala photography, and I love the idea of using props to make it an even more fun experience.
Who doesn’t love a birthday party?! From the time we’re small kids wearing birthday hats at our neighbor’s birthday parties, we love getting together and celebrating happy times…
I was honored to have covered a very special evening in NY City when friends and family gathered to celebrate actor Paul Sorvino’s birthday, which coincided with the 25th anniversary of his film “Goodfellas”. The birthday cake was decorated with movie memorabilia including cigars and wads of cash.
Mr. Sorvino’s dear friend, Governor Andrew Cuomo, raised his glass and toasted Mr. Sorvino’s wonderfulness and vast talents, after which guests were treated to a gorgeous operatic performance by the guest of honor.
The daffodils have bloomed, perfect little white flowers have magically appeared on the city trees and love is back in the air. And with the arrival spring, NY City schools are already planning graduation ceremonies for this coming June.
Being a professional photographer in NYC has included many photojournalistic photography assignments where I cover graduation ceremonies. Its always an honor and privilege to cover graduations, whether it be for a well-known medical school or various high schools throughout the city.
And its always particularly inspiring to hear how much students have accomplished in the years leading up to their graduation, and all the wonderful things each student has done in the time leading up to graduation. I always leave these events very touched by how wonderful teachers are and what great jobs they do, and how much promise there is in the younger generations coming of age in this world.
Being a special event photographer in NY City is never boring… its usually quite fun! Corporate event planners create interesting and entertaining programming that their guests will enjoy, providing great material for photojournalistic photos and social media buzz.
This photo was taken for an international financial firm that engages its guests with the best chess players in the world. In this photo, Magnus Carlson and Gary Kasparov enjoyed a challenging but enjoyable game of chess. What made this match even more special is that the guests actually coached each grandmaster throughout the game.
After the event which was jam-packed, the grandmasters signed chessboards and gave autographs to everyone… while at the same time, reviewing the match’s strategic moves with each other. This NY City professional photographer was left wishing she had learned to play chess, but its never too late!
