Inside a private, enclosed photo booth from Fun Booth Photos, up to 10 party guests adorned in fun props squeeze together. After checking their silliest faces in the 22-inch touch screen and making sure their hair isn't on fire, guests pose for an 18-megapixel Canon digital SLR inside the professionally lighted booth.
The booth then prints two individual photo strips within 10 seconds, and at the end of the festivities, all pictures are gathered into an album for the hosts to keep. The booth is set up by an attendant, who arrives in party-appropriate attire.
The DJ is spinning hits, the MC is keeping the fun flowing smoothly, and the dance floor is packed, all in a room decked out with billowing fabric, crystal chandeliers, and dramatic lighting. Guests standing in the photo-booth line gaze at video screens, or scope out a spot on comfy mod lounge furniture. The scene isn't a hip nightclub—it could be any event managed by Elevated Event Design. The company aims to make parties as fun to throw as they are to attend by providing a comprehensive bundle of services under one roof. Opportunities for customization abound, whether hosts are selecting a set from a music library of 150,000 songs, designing a monogram for the center of a portable dance floor, or deciding whether there's any risk of guests mistaking Chinese lanterns for piñatas.
It's prom night. Or a birthday party. Or, maybe it's a bachelorette bash. Whatever the occasion, Platinum Flash Photo Booth pins down memories as they happen with snapshots taken in their signature photo booths. While up to 12 guests at once pose for their big moment, the booths take care of all the rest. They're crafted to fit into any environment and come lined with eye-catching fabrics and textures. The company also knows the importance of accenting faces; booths arrive with everything from silly props such as fake mustaches to rotating LED ambiance lights. After clambering out of the picture nook with photo strips in hand, guests can place them on the photo board to pick up later. That keeps hands free for dancing or tenderizing meat.
