A camera flashes, and some unlikely characters emerge from behind a black curtain. An astronaut, a pirate, and a viking step out onto a red carpet, where velvet rope separates them from onlookers. The group isn't the cast of Apollo 14: The Outer Space Pillage-Off, but simply a group of party guests emerging from a photo booth.
This Hollywood treatment—complete with costumes and props—comes courtesy of the Magic Moment Photo Booth's "Extravaganza" booth package, which features a large, closed-in booth that can accommodate groups of photo subjects. Their team can also set up an open-air booth or a smaller, curtained model that looks like the classic photo booths found at carnivals and fairs. All three booth types snap photos in color or black and white, before spitting out strips with customized texts and graphics. Additionally, Magic Moment Photo Booth's team adds special touches with upgrades such as memory books and video recording.

The DJ is spinning hits, the MC is keeping the fun flowing smoothly, and the dance floor is packed, all in a room decked out with billowing fabric, crystal chandeliers, and dramatic lighting. Guests standing in the photo-booth line gaze at video screens, or scope out a spot on comfy mod lounge furniture. The scene isn't a hip nightclub—it could be any event managed by Elevated Event Design. The company aims to make parties as fun to throw as they are to attend by providing a comprehensive bundle of services under one roof. Opportunities for customization abound, whether hosts are selecting a set from a music library of 150,000 songs, designing a monogram for the center of a portable dance floor, or deciding whether there's any risk of guests mistaking Chinese lanterns for piñatas.
The first Ebert Studio opened almost 100 years ago on Chicago's west side. Since then, four successive generations have preserved memories for countless families in studios that now reside in Oak Park and Hinsdale. At the helm today is Jeff Ebert, the great-grandson of the studio's founder. Jeff makes a very small distinction to give you the big picture—"It's not so much that it's photography," he says, "but it's photographing people."
Making people feel comfortable and look better is just one part of his job. The next part is to create "a piece like a painting that can be hung above a mantle and somebody can be proud of for years and years to come." As the latest in a line of artists stretching back to 1915, Jeff does that well, harnessing the power of passed time and using it to build a portfolio that showcases families, weddings, animals, and individuals. Some of his notable subjects have included Cardinal Francis George, Walter Payton, and film director Christopher Columbus, known for his historical documentary of babysitting, Home Alone.
