Prom 2018

MESSAGE FROM VIBE PHOTO:   Prom is upon us! It’s going to be a great night!
We thought you would like to know how the prom photos will be done this year since it’s a little different than in the past.
-Vibe will be set up with lights and a background in the style of a Hollywood/Oscars red carpet affair. The background is a very modern “step and repeat’ style…see attached.
-All couples (and individuals and groups) will be quickly photographed as they arrive at the event. It’s a high-speed photo approach like what you see at the Oscars or the Grammy’s.
Way more fun since you’ll be less ‘posed’ and shots will be more free-flowing. Then you will turn in your tickets and go into the ballroom.
-We will take more photos than in the past and couples/friends will be encouraged to ‘ham it up’ and create a variety of images.  We will remain for a while so friends and groups can come back out and take more awesome shots together.
-There will be no Order Envelopes like in the past! Rather, you will be given a card with a web address and you will be able to place orders online from home. This is much more convenient  since you won’t need to prepay/keep track of an envelope and you get to see the images at your leisure.
