Super Sweet Sixteens offers everything necessary to throw a memorable Sweet 16 party, from invitations to venues. Its staff draws on 10 years of New York City nightclub lighting design, DJ, and event entertainment experience, including working on MTV's award shows, to amuse party guests. Super Sweet Sixteens even provides photo-booth rentals, so guests can capture moments from the night's revelry.
The WL2P in WL2P Entertainment stands for "We Like To Party," but the team also likes other things—such as laser shows, speaking foreign languages, and doling out wigs. The party experts specialize in festive light shows, which can feature lasers or "intelligent lighting" that shifts to suit each song's mood. The team's emcees, meanwhile, are all multilingual, chatting fluently in English, Italian, and Spanish; in a similarly multicultural vein, their DJ has spent more than 15 years spinning tracks ranging from Top 40 numbers to Greek tunes and Latin hits. Clients can even add a live element to the entertainment by including a professional percussionist, saxophonist, or singer. Their touch-screen photo booths come with an attendant to troubleshoot, as well as wacky wigs that help subjects legally add "Hair Color: Pink" to their driver's licenses.
CandidShots4u makes any gathering an event with photo booths and professional DJs. At birthdays, backyard gatherings, and reunions, multiple guests clamber into their photo booths, adorn themselves with humorous props, and snap off moments that print out onto 2”x6” photo strips. As partygoers bask in the limelight, DJs spin tunes nonstop for those in dancing shoes and accompany the sounds with a small light show.
A Picsfly Photobooth instantly enhances any party. Revelers crowd in, grab props, and pose for pictures off in front of patterned and personalized backdrops. There's no end to the range of booth experiences and looks: events spotlighted in the Picsfly portfolio showcase a very wide range of moods and styles. The album from Agnes and Mike's wedding, for instance, features animated gifs of guests as they laugh and pose. Plus, the pictures' various green-screen backdrops have silly, half-cartoon pictures of the happy couple in the background. Pictures of a 30th birthday, on the other hand, feature superhero masks and a white, non-digital backdrop.
Props are included in every package plus plenty of other fun extras. By renting the Instagram Printer, invented in 1455 by Guttenberg's more technologically adroit twin brother, guests can print their own phone pics from the event. Booth users can add a guestbook to their rental package, too.
Since 2001, RA Photo Booth has enlivened birthday parties, weddings, and dances with DJs, photo booths, and LED visual effects. Inside mobile photo booths, high-resolution digital cameras capture snapshots, which partygoers can use to decorate their lapels or foreheads with a little scotch tape. Alternatively, their DJs can decorate party soundscapes as LED light fixtures embellish floors and walls with a virtually unlimited number of customizable patterns, monograms and messages.
In an effort to make events easy for hosts, RA will set up all the necessary equipment before parties start. In addition, the LED lights they use consume less energy than traditional light bulbs and can often run off a single outlet, which gives guests more room on the dance floor to imitate inchworms.
Though portrait and fashion photographer Zack DeZon specializes in personalized photo booths, the word booth is a misnomer. Built around a professional still camera and studio-style lighting, his open and visible sets seamlessly blend photo-booth and studio experiences. For each party or event, Zack collaborates with patrons on every aspect of their booth, including color, camera angle, props, and set dressing. Seamless white paper and high-contrast lighting make up his simplest sets, and customizable designs incorporate themes that range from film noir to hall of mirrors, which requires infinite photo booths. He can set up his mobile parties in nearly any location, and he mans the sets throughout each event to field questions and ensure everything runs smoothly.
