DENVER EVENT PHOTOGRAPHER

You only get one chance to capture an event!

Whomever you hire to document your event had better have the skills and creativity to capture those moments on the first try, as there will not be another chance.

Rest assured we have you covered.

When hiring an event photographer, skills and style are only part of the equation. Factors such as reliability, punctuality and experience can be equally important. After all…

  • If your photographer cancels or is late, you get left in an inconvenient and potentially expensive situation.
  • If your photographer is unable to adapt to unforeseen circumstance you may end up with little worth keeping.

WHY CHOOSE BIG SUN PHOTOGRAPHY?

Uniquely Specialized Services!

Big Sun Photography has been providing skilled photographic services since 2009.

Yes, Denver has photographers on every corner, but very few are actually full time dedicated photographers who live and breathe photography on a daily basis.

Quality event photography requires a very different set of skills, equipment, experience and creativity than other genre of photography.

You would not hire a portrait photographer to do event work and vice versa as their primary skill sets do not overlap.

What makes us different?

We have worked with client events of all sizes and difficulty, from 12 person personals to 10,000 person corporate events.

  • Direct communication with your photographer.
  • No set hours.  We are available day/night/weekends too.
  • Local photographers experienced with Denver’s venues.
  • Specialized equipment.
  • In house post production.
  • No outsourced work.
  • Fast turnaround times.
Free Included Services

Big Sun Photography offers free post production services for all our clients.  Just capturing great photos is not always enough to get you what you want.  This is particularly so with difficult lighting venues and more artistic events like weddings and ceremonies.  Quality professional post production will bring out the full potential of your images.

Your images are valuable, but sometimes things happen.  Big Sun Photography provides FREE backup of your images on three separate hard drives (one within a fire-safe).

If you should lose your image files for any reason (computer hard drive failure or the cat walked across your “delete” key at just the wrong moment)…  no worries!  Pick up the phone and call. We will quickly replace your image files at no cost.

After a client’s event has been shot, the images will be professionally culled and uploaded to a private server where images will be made available for viewing and download.

Private Gallery: At your request, images can be uploaded to a public (or password protected) gallery which can be shared with the event attendees.

This makes sharing your images so much easier than dealing with all the resizing, uploading and gallery creation required on your own website or social media pages.  Just share a single link via email or social network.

Very often the event attendees will want images from the event either of themselves or particular moments during the event.  This can lead to a lot of unwanted calls and letters asking for files to print.

With a single word from you (our client), we can turn on a shopping cart system to your online gallery allowing visitors to order prints and files in any size and medium, delivered directly to their door.  No fuss, no muss on you end.  Just send out a single email to everyone with the gallery link included.

Words From Our Clients

Gene – thank you so much for the photos – I have looked through them and they are lovely.

Andrea Pinya – ENR Best Projects
Event Coordinator

We do 13+ trade shows per year and I hire a professional photographer for most of them.  These are hands down the best photos we’ve had returned for one of our events and I’ve been handling this for five years!   These really raise the bar and make our event look like a high end production.   I can’t wait to use these in our marketing for next year!

Irene Gruen – Bobit Business Media
Senior Event Marketing Manager

Joe and I just had a chance to take a quick look at your photos.  We both agree that they are awesome and exactly what we were looking for.  We would like to give you an additional $100 bonus for your hard work and for getting them back to us so fast.

Gene, You did yourself well, yesterday. You were showed yourself to be a true professional, kind, and patient, to name just a few. Your character showed through as well. You’re a good guy. Everyone at the facility thoroughly enjoyed you. You did an excellent job. Thank you.

C. Bruce
Father

It has taken me a while to finally feel up to looking through the funeral photographs from my brother’s service last month.  Gene, truly beautiful.  I was so lost in my own thoughts at the time that I wasn’t seeing the many friends and family who were there, sharing stories and memories from Bob’s life.  Within the photos I saw love, laughter, grief and strength.  These burial photos are not about remembering his death but about remembering all the people whom he touched in his life.  Bless you for putting so much work into such lovely imagery.  I will recommend you to the funeral home as a quality funeral photographer.

Beth Clinton
Sister

Mucho Gusto,

We at the San Jose Food Bank are very grateful for your generous donation of time and skill last month.  We were able to use your photographs for promotional posters at this year’s Mardi Gras festival to help collect donations.  We feel the quality images helped a great deal.  Remember to drop by next time you’re in the area.  We would love to see you again.

Demotix would like to thank you for your coverage of the USA Pro Challenge bicycle race this year.  You did a good job and we appreciate you driving all the way up to Breckenridge on such short notice.  We’ll see if we can get you a press pass next year to put you in a better position.

Hey Gene, Larry here…  I received the final images today and am so very happy.  My son looks like a rock star kicking goals and running the field.  He really loves that diving shot you captured.  Call you again if we make regionals this year.

Larry Jess
Father

Gene!  Just wanted to thank you for your professional work at my brother’s retirement party.  You did a wonderful job.  Martha (his wife) couldn’t stop talking about the portrait you took of her and the sisters.  She hung the framed print right in the main foyer.

Bob Richards
Client

We at the School of Mines felt you did a wonderful job capturing the excitement and fun of our student fair last month.  We’ve incorporated several of your images into our monthly newsletter.  We will be using your photography services again in the future I’m sure.

Beth Whiteman
School Event Planner

Thank you Gene for making my wedding such a success.  You really helped to make things go smoothly and I just love the photos.  I know wedding photography is no easy task, but you really made it look easy.  Thanks again.  Can’t wait to get my prints.
