Photo booths have become a staple at parties over the past few years. Extreme Photo Booths stands out from its competitors thanks to multiple awards, including two consecutive "Preferred Service Provider" commendations from David's Bridal in 2013 and 2014. It's no wonder, as its booths have a lot going for them. They're big (some fit up to 11 people), they're fast (strips print within 20 seconds), and they're fun (they come with props and an option for green-screen backgrounds). A four-photo strip is printed for each person in the booth, with an extra one placed in a keepsake scrapbook. After your event?at which the Extreme team delivers, sets up, and takes down the equipment?you're given a USB thumb drive with every photo that was taken.
Being in front of a Pics 2 You photo-booth camera brings out partygoers' silly sides. Inside each curtained booth, goofy faces and poses wriggle their way out of even the sternest of subjects before the flash goes off and the paper photos print. If the camera itself isn't enough to bring out the giggles, numerous props, such as thick-rimmed glasses, maracas, and straw hats, add an air of absurdity to any shoot. Additionally, Pics 2 You booths print two images of every shot to ensure no laugh-inducing pic is lost—one for the guest to take home and one for the DMV to replace a driver's outdated license photo.
Photo booths from Flash produce fun and high-quality results, giving up to 10 people enough room to ham it up in front of a camera designed for professional use. The 18-megapixel Canon Eos Rebel T2i captures stills and can record video in full 1080p HD, with a fast-acting printer promptly issuing photo strips. Music from the built-in speaker system keeps subjects moving, and changeable backdrops ensure repeat photo bombers don’t get bored. Flash’s service packages range from two to five hours and include setup and takedown, a choice of color or black-and-white prints, access to an online photo gallery, prints for everyone in the booth, and one of three charismatic service attendants.
The four veteran pic-snappers of Iluminada Photography commemorate special events with stylish, modern pictures. With a focus on weddings, the photographers spend the big day compiling impressive collections of posed shots, candids, and alibi-establishing portraits of guests standing by clocks. Albums wind up on the studio's password-protected event page, letting clients search out their favorites to save and print. Illuminada also offers photo booth rental for those who want to add some extra fun to their wedding or party, with guests snapping quick pictures of themselves behind the curtain. Beyond documenting all manner of merriment, the shutterbugs at Iluminada help newly-weds give back to the community by donating a percentage of every wedding package to the charity of the couple's choice.
Platinum Party Service's custom-made cakes, party favors, and shiny LED-lit photo booths turn any high school reunion, wedding reception, or simple tailgate into a memorable occasion for the ages. Guests can immortalize a birthday party or bachelorette outing with t-shirts printed specifically for the occasion; or they can add muscle to their event, as the company provides professional private security to ensure guests won't be to bothered by roving gatecrasher bandits.
Chariot Photo Booths elevates mere parties to spectacular shindigs with lab-quality photographs produced within seconds. After entering the booth, up to 10 revelers (though Chariot booths have seen up to 20 guests at once) select a template and a photo style, then ready their grins and poses. A variable color display and interior speakers count down to five and snap three or four photos at once. Afterward, the booth speedily readies prints for each guest on request. An on-site attendant ensures that the booth keeps merrily snapping photos throughout the evening. And an online photo gallery even displays the hijinks after everyone heads home, allowing guests to feel famous or like the insects entomologists photograph for the university intranet. Party planners can also add other entertainment options to their celebrations, such as bounce houses, inflatable obstacle courses, and spacious tents.
