Our entertainment company just wrote me an e-mail saying they plan to give us some extras. Here is one of the things they said:
Also we will have our own video / photographer at the event to take footage of the event for our own use as well as pictures for us. We do this at most events . We will give you access to all of this after the event if you would like.
I feel like that's a little weird. We have 2 photographers and 2 videographers already. I'm not sure how they would feel about this. I'm not sure how I feel about this. We picked high-quality, expensive people for our photo/video. Like most of you, we spent days visiting with photographers/videographers and looking through photos to find people who shared our vision and did extraordinary work. I don't want people we didn't select getting in their way. I have no idea how good these people are. The only good that would come of it is we'd have photos to display on our tv screens. We found out pretty late in the game that our photographer isn't really a fan of handing over her photos before she's had a chance to edit them.
Should we tell him no, he can't bring these people? Is this normal? Has anyone else had their entertainment company bring their own photo/video, and if so, did they get in the way?
