Frank Raffa started DJing when it meant spinning vinyl records on a turntable. Nowadays, he uses his more than 20 years of experience to helm Sound Sensation DJs, a team of party starters who play everything from classic rock to One Direction. Music is just one of the ways they add pizzazz to events, however. The team also creates custom light displays, equip event spaces with photo booths, and host game shows so that party guests aren't forced to entertain themselves by constructing a leaning tower of cocktail weenies.
Paparazzi Photo Booths' 2"x6" photo strips are mementos, party favors, and portraits, all at once. The company's booth attendants set up their mobile portrait centers at weddings, birthday parties, and other occasions, then welcome guests into the booth to grin and pose with props. The black-and-red booth functions equally well at indoor or outdoor events.
Chariot Photo Booths elevates mere parties to spectacular shindigs with lab-quality photographs produced within seconds. After entering the booth, up to 10 revelers (though Chariot booths have seen up to 20 guests at once) select a template and a photo style, then ready their grins and poses. A variable color display and interior speakers count down to five and snap three or four photos at once. Afterward, the booth speedily readies prints for each guest on request. An on-site attendant ensures that the booth keeps merrily snapping photos throughout the evening. And an online photo gallery even displays the hijinks after everyone heads home, allowing guests to feel famous or like the insects entomologists photograph for the university intranet. Party planners can also add other entertainment options to their celebrations, such as bounce houses, inflatable obstacle courses, and spacious tents.
Renting a booth from Cool Cube Photo Booths is a great way to let party guests show their goofy side. This photo booth is completely enclosed, yet still holds up to ten people, as a Canon EOS camera captures every raspberry, peace sign, and cheesy grin. An event host guides partygoers through every step of the photo process, passing on prints of each guest's pose. At the end of the event, the party thrower gets a USB of all photos taken at the event, which can help them prove whether or not their aunt has actually grown the lips of a duck.
Being in front of a Pics 2 You photo-booth camera brings out partygoers' silly sides. Inside each curtained booth, goofy faces and poses wriggle their way out of even the sternest of subjects before the flash goes off and the paper photos print. If the camera itself isn't enough to bring out the giggles, numerous props, such as thick-rimmed glasses, maracas, and straw hats, add an air of absurdity to any shoot. Additionally, Pics 2 You booths print two images of every shot to ensure no laugh-inducing pic is lost—one for the guest to take home and one for the DMV to replace a driver's outdated license photo.
With their easy touch-screen instructions, the portable photo-booths of Reliable Photobooths Inc. capture images of jubilant attendees at events throughout Philadelphia, New Jersey, and Delaware with ease. After an attendant delivers and set-ups the booth, groups of 10 or more can step inside and pose for their choice of color or black and white pictures. Each photo-session yields two 2" x 6" photo-strips adorned with a personalized message or a customized logo.
To further preserve memories, staffers assemble high-resolution images onto a DVD and host pictures in a password-protected online gallery for six months so event attendees can download, print, and share their favorite shots. Along with its standard package, Reliable Photobooths Inc. enhances soirees with add-ons such as props, scrapbooks, additional print options, photo-strip frames, and an on-site Facebook uploading option.
