Photo booths are popular, fun and a great tool when it comes to photographing all of your guests in a relaxed environment. You're guests get to choose when they're ready to be photographed and ham it up as much as they want! You can add props or furniture to equation the bounds are limitless.
In the case of Amanda and Corey's photobooth at Vintage Villas, they added yellow and grey props to bring home the color and theme of their wedding. They added yellow pictures frames, mustaches, and umbrellas. They also chose a white paper background so that anything more elaborate would not compete with their design aesthetic.
Duchman Family Winery (formerly Mandola Estates Winery) with Carly and Chad's photobooth in July 2010.
They did not choose a backdrop so we provided a piece of material that had to be steamed forever before the booth opened during reception, and a great deal of retouching got rid of the rest of those wrinkles, that backdrop was promptly burned ;)
A booth also help gets photographs of people who might not make it to the dance floor or any other action in the night, it's a great way to not miss people at your wedding.
We will be photographing a booth coming in a couple weeks at Barr Mansion. The couple would like to have photographs of every single guest and family. So they are handing out business card sized prompts for their guests to find "the photobooth" Which will be marked but it's not a traditional booth. Our photographer for that portrait session is super excited about the prospect. I'll admit, I'm a little jealous...
This booth was constructed for Rackspace Austin for there company party during the tech week of SXSW. Their party was held at Kung Fu Saloon in Austin. You can see in the images that there are Space Invader characters bricked into the wall where we planned to stage the booth, using the space as out backdrop. So we chose to have props. I am not much of a builder so I tasked the super talented Jennifer Ng to do the props for the booth. She knocked it out of the park with all of her props with gaming references.
This booth was constructed for Leap's benefit party at Seaholm Power Plant. I thought a backdrop would be terrible in such an amazing place so we lit the wall of the building as close a we could get to it. and it looks outstanding.
This booth was also for Leap , this time at Speakeasy downtown Austin. This booth was wonderful because the best place for us was a dark corner with a circle booth and a bank of windows with a street lights shining through. I used an extra long exposure to pick up the architecture of those lights. The guests were decked out in the flapper best and the night was a raging success. What a great time we all had!
