The Sofitel in Brisbane was host to some cheeky acrobatic elves and a few hundred guests celebrating their Christmas Party. As with most events we start by photographing the room setup and some detailed shots of the centrepieces while the room is relatively empty.

As guests start to arrive we capture some nice social photos of couples and groups at pre-dinner drinks. This is also a great time for roving characters and entertainment to mingle with guests and get some fun, unique  images.

When doors open we like to capture some more socials in the room as well as candid photos of guests having fun – using the photobooth always brings out some interesting photos.

Here are some tips to get the best photography for your Christmas Party.
