As a recently wed couple, Shawn and Jonah Amos are familiar with the pressure couples can feel to make their wedding or event memorable. Now, the Amoses send out photo booths loaded up with fun amenities that ensure guests at any function can walk away with a pleasant memento. Guests can play with props such as bow ties, giant hats, and marker boards with personalized messages, and have shots taken in color or black and white. After the shoot, photo strips are printed out emblazoned with the host’s choice of custom logo, such as an extremely general marriage proposal. All photos from the event are stored online for future perusal and printing, and add-ons including memory albums give hosts a keepsake of their own.
