Black Westchester's Black To Business Section

Like you are when hiring an event planner, you may be on the fence about hiring a photographer for your next event. You or someone on your staff is perfectly capable of handling a camera, so how hard can it be?! I ask you to absolutely reconsider because it’s much harder than it looks. Even if you are capable of working the shutter button on a camera, doesn’t mean you will be able to handle all the things that transpire when photographing an event. Here are a few Black Photographers in Westchester you should consider when thinking about hiring a professional photographer for you next event. Let them know you heard about them from Black Westchester.
