The most overlooked element to a smaller scale party is a photographer. Great, artistic, professional photography does not always have to come with a hefty price tag, and is not reserved solely for weddings. If you know the right person to hire, it can be not only affordable, but the best decision you made. The last thing a host should have to do is run around with a camera...but you also need to have peace of mind that the day is going to be recorded in a candid, artistic way and that none of the festivities will be left uncaptured.
For your next small, intimate party, Krista Simms Photography will be the best addition to your event. Krista will capture the entire day in the most unobtrusive way. Her engagement sessions are so creative, and her ability to capture a moment between people is amazing. Krista's forte is intimate events and engagement shoots, family sessions, and one-on-one shoots. Also ask her about her "pin-up/ boudoir" shoots (the best gift for your husband to be before a wedding or for your husband for an anniversary!)
Even if you don't have a party planned, get your spouse or family dressed up and have her take your photos in a private session.You should never have to wait for an excuse to have your life captured...
