The Perfect Plan for Father's Day!

This Father’s Day, Onthr3 can help you plan the perfect gift to celebrate your father, grandfather, husband, or friend.

 

The typical “Dad” tends to hate being in front of the camera and yet he can’t say no to creating and capturing beautiful memories with his family.

This weekend, treat dad to his favorite activity or meal and book an Onthr3 Photographer to help make sure he lives in the moment while someone else captures it. Our photographers and service emphasize taking photos of those organic moments and can help you plan some staged ones as well. We know it’s the everyday moments fathers share with their family that leaves the biggest impact and brings the most joy.

Want to try something different this year? Consider treating Dad to something he’s never done and make sure your Onthr3 photographer is there so you can enjoy every moment. A memory made together is a gift that can last a lifetime.

Caps Off To A Great Party!

Tips for Hosting a Great Graduation Party

They crossed the stage and got the diploma, now it's time to celebrate! One of the most exciting traditions for graduates is an epic graduation party to celebrate their success. Onthr3 shares some tips to ease the planning process and ensure an enjoyable atmosphere. 

Plan ahead

  • As soon as you can, get the venue decided and fill out the guest list.
  • Cooking vs Catering. This is a busy season, so catering prices are often inflated. The earlier you can get your menu set, the less you have to worry about last minute price increases.
  • Inform the guests! There are always a ton of parties, so let guests know asap.

Logistics

  • Multiple friends and family members graduating this year? Try to coordinate party times if you feel your guests will be attending the various parties.
  • On the day of the event, don’t forget to place something near the venue so guests can easily locate the party.

Hire a photographer

    • Don’t get stuck behind the camera. This is a special day and you want to enjoy without stress. Allow a photographer to capture the memories to last a lifetime.

Food for Thought

Are you a local restaurant, bakery, or diner? Food photography is key for building a tasty brand and we have some delicious tips for capturing your best bites. 

1) Stay away from stock photos.

You might be able to get a nice pic to promote your tasty food or excellent service but these images aren’t as shareable, and don't speak to your unique menu options.

2) Be authentic.

Photos of people doing interesting things, like employees interacting with customers or patrons enjoying themselves in your establishment are more specific to you. Capture the ambiance that makes people want to come in and check it out for themselves.

3) Book a professional photographer.

Showcase your restaurant or food in the best way possible to elevate you marketing and give you plenty of photos to use for your social media. Remember, this may be your customers first impression of your brand and could determine if they make the choice to try you out.

Final tips to snack on

The best photos are taken in natural light. Don’t use overhead lights, lamps, or your cellphone flashlight.

Clutter free is the way to be. Do a check of the frame to make sure you are free of spoons, napkins or any item that doesn’t add to the photo. Busy backgrounds diminish the photo quality. Focus on what’s important; the food.
