Every aspect of your party is important! Therefore you can’t afford to miss anything that goes on.

The photographer has to be there for every moment that is memorable which is the whole party. Don’t forget to smile every time you see the photographer aiming the camera at you or your guest for that matter. Many people try to cut corners on their quinceañera photographer, I mean they prefer to spend more money on their cakes than on photography.

When looking for a photographer, here are some things to look for:

1. Ask for their portfolio.

Do their pictures have a magazine style? How’s the lighting?


2. Ask them how many quinceañeras they’ve photographed.

Do they have references you can call?

3. Test their creativity.

Ask them where they would photograph you and your court before the party. Do they know which parks/public places in your community provide a good backdrop?


4. Evaluate their personality.

Are they asking you for your input? A good photographer is not only talented but also responds to feedback and requests well.

5. Discuss terms of payment.

Do not pay them all the money upfront. A deposit should not be more than 50 percent. (Everything is negotiable. Feel free to bargain. Remind them that you have a small budget and that it’s not a wedding.)


Bonus Tips:

 The memories of your quinceañera are very important because it’s a day that you’ll never relive. One way to guarantee that your memories last forever is to put disposable cameras on each table. To make sure everyone uses them, ask your court to work the room and strike funny poses with guests.
