Laci’s PhotoBooth preserves memories in the form of unlimited 2”x6” photos and digital galleries at weddings, birthday parties, and galas. A magnet for partygoers, the photo booth lures them into its portable studio to don novelty props as they pose for a photo, which is printed on the spot, archived on a CD, and collected in an online gallery. To further capture the spirit of an event, hosts can customize the photos with logos or messages—such as their name and the date of the event. Some of the booths boast VideoBooth technology, which not only snaps photos, but records video footage of attendees congratulating the newlyweds, wishing the guest of honor a happy birthday, or laying down a impenetrable alibi. A dutiful attendant accompanies every booth to set it up and stand by for the duration of the event to assist with pictures and props.

The picture professionals at Marin preserve motionless moments with an array of digital photo services. Bulk-scanning equipment scans and stores up to 100 photos on one handy disc, employing the same process used to create identical twins and evil doppelgangers to help images go from handheld to byte-sized. Photos must be between 2"x3" to 8"x12", loose (not attached to an album), and free of staples, adhesives, and the fingerprints of wanted criminals. Groupon customers can scan extra pics at a discounted price of $0.25 each (a $0.50 value), and specify a particular chronological order for an additional $5. This Groupon is not valid for scanning negatives, slides, or Polaroid photos. Items that do not meet the requirements for bulk photo scanning can be custom scanned for an additional fee.
