In the curtained-off confines of a photo booth, revelers adjust a digital screen?s controls, then mug for the camera wrapped in feather boas, eyes obscured behind sunglasses. The props and the booth come courtesy of Switek Entertainment, whose photo booths and chief disc jockey?who spins under the name DJ Switek?energize crowds at Michigan wedding receptions and parties. The company also draws on connections to other area businesses, matching hosts with party essentials, such as guests who can put their hands in the air for the entire duration of an event.

Partygoers can duck into Fun Booth's spacious photo booths to capture moments during weddings, family reunions, and parties, then quickly share them with real-time Facebook uploads. After the booth's digital camera snaps four pictures of groups twirling canes or combing fake mustaches picked from the prop box, its sub-dye printers fire out photo strips within 10 seconds. The booth is delivered for free and accompanied by an attendant to answer questions. Add-ons include scrapbooks made of all the event's images, as well as a video-booth option where guests record greetings for their hosts or film their Real World: Gary, Indiana auditions.
Set against silky backdrops and swathed in out-of-character props, party guests pose for pictures inside one of the photo booths by Marvelous Image Booth. As they return their feather boas and monocles to the attendant, photo strips emerge from the printer, each emblazoned with a customized event logo or message. The pictures and strips are unlimited during the rental period, and the images from each event are transferred to a CD for safekeeping or use as a sentimental pocket mirror. Additional amenities include photo scrapbooks for guests to decorate, and VIP treatments with velvet ropes and red carpet.
Armed with Canon Rebel DSLR cameras, FlashBox's photo booths capture crisp photographs and videos of guests at weddings and other celebrations. Partygoers mosey before each booth's 20-inch touchscreen monitor, where they can elect to immortalize smiles in technicolor, black and white, or old-fashioned sepia tone. The user-friendly system also allows subjects to swiftly flip-flop from still-photo mode to video mode and back. Throughout the festivities, an attendant stands close by to forestall mechanical confusion and arm subjects with goofy hats, outrageous novelty cufflinks, and other wacky props.
