From under the brim of a ten-gallon hat, the stern face of a rifle-toting man peers out across a table laden with liquor bottles. Despite appearances, this isn’t Wyatt Earp. Rather, he’s the subject of a signature old-time photo taken at The Solvang Photographers and Photo Gallery. Here, modern-day subjects slip easily into the period garb of Southern belles, gun slingers, bar ladies, and outlaw cacti to pose for sepia-toned photographs. Started by Geoffrey T. Grant in 1976 and now helmed by his daughter and her husband, the family-run business welcomes subjects of all ages into its camera’s scope for unique portraits of families, couples, kids, and friends.
Matt and Alex of Thought Box Photobooth tote their six-person photo booth to weddings, festivals, and birthday parties within 45 miles of Santa Barbara to immortalize these moments in all their goofy-hatted glory. Props from Jagger-size smiles to mustaches the size of Mick Jagger enliven vogueing sessions. Guests can sit, stand, and cavort for unlimited photos, and each model receives duplicate 2" x 6" photo strips containing four shots each. A DVD album compiles all the high-resolution shots for the party's hosts. The photos will also appear in Thought Box's online gallery for all to enjoy, safe from the ravages of time and portrait-nibbling shutterbugs.
My Flash Photo Booth captures memories that might otherwise be lost in the excitement of a soiree. Its mini booths stand atop tables poised to snap candids, and freestanding booths freeze frames in the open air. Printers spit out photo strips on the spot, and hosts will also get a flash drive and DVD containing all images. These files can then be printed out and placed into photo albums or stuffed into a piñata that will be busted open at next year’s event.
My Social Booth captures memories with two types of photo booths: a traditional booth with silky curtains and an elegant freestanding booth. All three have advanced cameras, touchscreens, and high-resolution inkjet printers that create black-and-white, color, or sepia-toned photo strips. Groups can get creative with props and accessories such as mustache silhouettes.
One Shot Photography's professional knows how to infuse subjects' personalities into shots that might otherwise be mundane in the hands of another photographer. Instead, tots' gap-toothed smiles light up a Father's Day portrait, a gaggle of pugs happily cavort in a family photo, and a mom-to-be's pregnant belly is compared to her partner's taco-induced pudginess. Specializing in outdoor photo shoots, the photographer captures friends and family members beneath the natural light and warmth of the California sun, ensuring that their unique character shines through in the finished product. The staff aims lenses at subjects as diverse as graduating seniors, newly engaged couples, or newborns.
