Why We Love Holiday Party Photography | National Portrait Gallery Washington DC
Do you have the holiday spirit? Maybe not quite yet – it’s barely September after all. But after seeing these phenomenal holiday parties hosted at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington DC, you might change your mind! Over the next few weeks, many organizations will start to organize their holiday parties. Honestly, we can’t wait for those cooler temperatures and festive events.
Here are four reasons we LOVE holiday party photography:
- Unique Ambiance
Holiday parties are unlike any others. It’s inevitable, after shooting our first holiday-themed event of the year, our team instantly gets into the holiday spirit. We can’t wait to see what unique designs and festive holiday themes this year will bring! Will yours be one of them? We’d love to help you document your spectacular event from the tiniest detail to the most unforgettable moment!
- Priceless Expressions
We’re not entirely sure why, but holiday parties elicit some of the very best candid images. As the year winds down and people start looking forward to some extra time with their families, they tend to relax and have some fun. This means hilarious dance moves, great conversation, and authentic facial expressions. This time of year really brings out the best in people, and we love capturing it!
- Holiday Cheer
We all felt it as kids, and let’s be honest, that feeling never goes away. The holiday season is infused with a unique spirit not felt the rest of the year. Everyone has a little pep in their step, and unless you’re Uncle Scrooge, we inclined to love a little deeper during this time of year. We love seeing holiday-themed banquets filled with that special cheer.
- Fun Décor
During the holiday season, you can get away with a little extra sparkle, color, and extravagance. The childhood awe returns when we see the room covered in red and green. Just like this party at the National Portrait Gallery, images of falling snowflakes and twinkling trees mesmerize guests – and our photographers! It’s truly a pleasure to take it all in from our side of the lens.
