When photographer Kara Michelle Lamm signed her first print for a show, she wrote it as her nickname "KiKi" rather than her given name. The moniker seemed to better fit her artistic side, and it stuck. Nowadays, she works out of her personal studio, KiKi Creates, selling canvas prints of everything from wedding scenes to palm-tree-studded beaches. She complements her own handiwork with custom photo albums and photo booth rentals for events.
As a professional photographer with an artistic flare, Hannah Joy captures fleeting moments, cleans them up, and releases them back into the wild. Her bright demeanor easily elicits big smiles in the Beaches–Jax, Atlantic, Ponte Vedra, San Marco, and downtown Jacksonville areas, all of which are available as beguiling backgrounds by appointment. After the photo shoot is finished, Hannah’s hand-retouching services can help minimize glare, red eye, or unsightly scars earned while battling white whales on the open sea. Smiling subjects also receive a handy USB drive packed with 15–20 optimized images, preserving digital doppelgangers for real-life or online posterity.
ID’s Fabulous PhotoBooth adds photographic pizzazz to weddings, birthday parties, proms, and other events. Guests rummage through the props box and don Viking helmets, Groucho glasses, and bunny ears before striking impromptu poses in front of a magenta background. Throughout each of ID’s three packages, subjects enjoy limitless shots, each rolling out smoothly under the watch of a friendly onsite attendant. Guests can also commemorate the evening with a custom memory book or give thanks to attendees with thank-you cards bearing candid images from the event.
Phobooth's team knows photography—its work has been cited in the New York Times, Wired, and Newsweek. So, when staff members set out to develop their photo booth, they upheld high standards, demanding that the booth produce magazine-quality images. Today, they transport their photo booths across the entire state of Florida with no travel fees. After setting up the fully automatic photo booth at parties or corporate events, they welcome guests to pop in and strum fluffy pink guitars while wrapping their friends in feathery boas. The prop box also includes items such as old-fashioned hats or oversize sunglasses, and photos print using an ink that's designed to last the shelf life of mayonnaise—100 years. Phobooth offers three packages: basic, which comes with a disc of all pictures taken; plus, which adds social-networking options; and premium, which includes custom velvet backdrops and screen graphics. A photo-booth attendant delivers and sets up each package and stands by throughout the event.
Framed Fun's photobooths snap a series of shots and instantly spit out a strip of prints to enjoy, but since they're brought to weddings, birthdays, corporate events, and other parties, there's no need to fumble around for a quarter like you would at the mall. And also unlike the mall booths, these boast a whole host of extra options to make the experience more memorable, such as props, green screens, a red carpet and velvet ropes leading to the red-curtained entryway, and even the ability to take short videos. A technician's on hand to set up the booths, and in addition to guests getting their own copies of the pictures, photos can also be added to a scrapbook or be shared instantly via social media.
The mobile photography chambers from TLC Photo Booth capture candid shots of party guests at weddings, birthday parts, and corporate events. Before piling into the spacious booth, guests rummage through a props box, bedecking themselves with hats, boas, and tiny hats for their hats. The onsite attendant—who also sets up all equipment—stays on hand through the entire rental, ensuring cameras keep clicking and prints roll out smoothly.
