Before the discovery of the balloon, it was thought that the only essentials for a party were friendly guests and a CD of whale screams. Get ready for a modern get-together with today's Groupon: for $370, you get a three-hour photo-booth rental from Rex Photobooth Company (up to a $745 value). Delivery and pickup are free for locations within 25 miles of Baton Rouge.
The Rex Photobooth Company team adds flashy pizzazz to special occasions with photo booths, incarcerating memories into prints and high-resolution digital files. After delivering camera-loaded boxes, at least two seasoned staffers—each donning occasion-appropriate duds—stick around to assist in picture taking and keep guests informed of the latest fads in facial contortionism. Voice and visual instructions guide subjects as they pose for six pictures that can print out in color, black and white, or sepia. In addition to disguising foreign agents wishing to party incognito, a box of accompanying props helps add a tinge of goofiness to impromptu photo shoots with boas, hats, bow ties, and other wacky accouterments. The metal paparazzo produces prints in about 10 seconds, as well as saving high-resolution digital copies onto a CD and into an online gallery where they'll hang for 12 months.
Rex Photobooth Company offers a discount to its Facebook fans, but this Groupon still provides the best deal available.
