These days, most people are content to document parties by using their cellphones to snap blurry, dimly lit, and unremarkable photographs; Virginia Photo Booths and More owner Michael Massino is not. He knows there’s something special that happens when you and a friend or ten pile into a photo booth and jostle playfully while hastily deciding what goofy face to make before the shutter clicks. To elevate mundane party photographs to treasured keepsakes, Michael and the team at Virginia Photo Booths and More offer nostalgic portable photo booths and photo packages.
Their booth of choice is the Model 12 booth⎯dubbed "best on the market" by America's Photobooth Association and "most likely to make a British Foot Guard smile" by pranksters everywhere. This model combines the vintage feel of a real photo booth with technology fit for the modern world. Its 15-megapixel camera slings images printed via dye sublimation, delivering crisp prints of any pose. Hosts can choose from four different color palettes, made-to-order messaging options, and customized backgrounds to match an event's décor. Afterwards, they can share frames on email, Twitter, and Facebook, through a personal webpage with all event photos or by plastering them on the town's welcome sign. Additional services such as props, professionally designed booth wraps, and background music can also be added for finishing touches.
