At Black Tie Balls we can set up a mobile studio, with backdrop, at the venue and take groups, couples and individual portraits. We can supply themed backdrops for themed nights,* such as a "James Bond" night, and also provide some props to enhance the photographs. Photographs are viewed on a computer screen, purchased, printed and mounted; the customers take them home at the end of the evening or they can be posted. We use Mitsubishi Dye Sublimation Printers for near instant results. There is no obligation to buy. A few days later, the photos can be viewed in a secure area on our website and purchased, which can also be password protected for extra security. For large functions we can provide more photographers and staff. We can also take some roving photographs, and if required, small groups around the tables, time permitting. We arrive at the venue one and a half hours before guests are due to arrive to set up. We need an area of at least 12 feet x 14 feet to set up the studio and sales table. We also need mains electrical power for our equipment. The photographs that we print on the night are 8x6 inches in size, and we sale these for £10. We can take cash or credit and debit card payments at the venue. We also offer organizers the option to include the cost of a photograph in the admission price with a discount available for this option. Other print sizes are available from our website where your event photographs are available for purchase, usually within 48 hours of the event, which provides convenient global access to images, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
We have Public Liability and Professional Indemnity Insurance. Our equipment is electrical safety tested. Black Tie Portraits is owned by Robert Coyne LSWPP, who is a qualified member of the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers.
