Our Prom Photography Service
School prom photography is at the heart of what we do! We are both secondary school teachers (our full-time jobs) and we set up Photolux with the intention of providing student-friendly prices for our photographs. We have been booked by numerous schools to date, where we take individual, couple and group portrait-style photographs of the students. We also make use of our growing range of fun props to take the increasingly popular 'photo booth' style images, which the students just love!
As teachers involved in the organisation of our own school proms, we felt that many companies were charging what we considered to be unfair prices for their services. As such, we are able to offer your students a mounted 8x6 inch print for only £5.00. We also have a range of packages, such as three prints for £12.00.
How it Works
We do not charge schools for attending proms; we simply arrive at your chosen venue, set up our temporary portrait studio and take photographs throughout the evening. Students choose which image(s) they like and can have it/them printed there and then at the prom, so that they are available to take home that night to share with families. We make use of professional, photo-lab quality printers that we bring along to the venue. We also make images available online within 24 hours via a unique link on this website, allowing students and their families to make secure post-event purchases if they wish.
Peace of Mind
We are fully CRB/DBS checked and have £2m of public liability insurance. We are comfortable working at events with a large number of attendees; 370 guests is our largest event to date! Also, as we are both teachers, we are accustomed to working with young people. This combined with over 20 years of photographic experience means that we have the knowledge, patience and customer-focus needed to ensure that we are a positive addition to your event. Most importantly, we are able to help your students feel at ease and confident in front of the camera - both important factors when taking photographs that will provide a lasting memory of a special evening!
But do not take our word for it! Here are two testimonials from events we have recently attended:
It was an absolute pleasure having you both there to photograph the Year 11 Viva Las Vegas Prom 2014. The photos were stunning and both of you made the staff and students feel completely relaxed and at ease. These photos will last students a lifetime and they will be able to look back and cherish these for many years. Thank you for being so approachable, professional, organised and easy to work with; it was a pleasure having you involved in the planning and preparation of the prom photography. - George Spencer Academy, Nottingham
Photolux took photographs at our recent Sixth Form Ball and they were brilliant. At all times they were professional and courteous and we were extremely pleased with the service they provided. The photographs were really good and the students will now have a lasting memory of their final event at Sixth Form with all their friends. Many thanks Photolux, great job! - A medium size sixth form, Nottingham
