When photographer Kara Michelle Lamm signed her first print for a show, she wrote it as her nickname "KiKi" rather than her given name. The moniker seemed to better fit her artistic side, and it stuck. Nowadays, she works out of her personal studio, KiKi Creates, selling canvas prints of everything from wedding scenes to palm-tree-studded beaches. She complements her own handiwork with custom photo albums and photo booth rentals for events.
ID’s Fabulous PhotoBooth adds photographic pizzazz to weddings, birthday parties, proms, and other events. Guests rummage through the props box and don Viking helmets, Groucho glasses, and bunny ears before striking impromptu poses in front of a magenta background. Throughout each of ID’s three packages, subjects enjoy limitless shots, each rolling out smoothly under the watch of a friendly onsite attendant. Guests can also commemorate the evening with a custom memory book or give thanks to attendees with thank-you cards bearing candid images from the event.
Phobooth's team knows photography—its work has been cited in the New York Times, Wired, and Newsweek. So, when staff members set out to develop their photo booth, they upheld high standards, demanding that the booth produce magazine-quality images. Today, they transport their photo booths across the entire state of Florida with no travel fees. After setting up the fully automatic photo booth at parties or corporate events, they welcome guests to pop in and strum fluffy pink guitars while wrapping their friends in feathery boas. The prop box also includes items such as old-fashioned hats or oversize sunglasses, and photos print using an ink that's designed to last the shelf life of mayonnaise—100 years. Phobooth offers three packages: basic, which comes with a disc of all pictures taken; plus, which adds social-networking options; and premium, which includes custom velvet backdrops and screen graphics. A photo-booth attendant delivers and sets up each package and stands by throughout the event.
The mobile photography chambers from TLC Photo Booth capture candid shots of party guests at weddings, birthday parts, and corporate events. Before piling into the spacious booth, guests rummage through a props box, bedecking themselves with hats, boas, and tiny hats for their hats. The onsite attendant—who also sets up all equipment—stays on hand through the entire rental, ensuring cameras keep clicking and prints roll out smoothly.
