Antoine LaFramboise spends hours behind the camera, but that doesn’t mean he’s a photographer. On his website he proudly proclaims he is a “poet first,” though he seamlessly walks the line between artistic mediums. He often pens poems to accompany his candid black-and-white and softly colored images, and his creativity also spills onto short, dreamy videos set to music. His diversity of mediums mirrors his diversity of artistic subjects; he is just as at home helming fashion shoots as he is putting a fresh spin on real-estate photography, an end he achieves without installing Santa Clauses in every chimney. Weddings inspire some of LaFramboise’s finest work, as he eschews forced poses in favor of photojournalistic shots of a couple’s embrace and dynamic videos that capture the festivities’ joyful music and laughter.

Renting a Magbooth doesn't mean some guy in an unmarked van will drop off a hulking piece of machine with little more than a how-dee-do. Instead, a full-time attendant will be on duty for the duration of the event, ensuring proper booth function and strong-arming guests into having a good time. The attendant also brings props and accessories that turn the mini photo sessions into retro fests featuring pirates, kitschy vinyl album covers, and more. Every rental includes unlimited prints, which means guests can get in the booth as many times as they want and take home hundreds of matte 4x6 printouts for unlimited Facebook tagging and darts practice. All of the images will be hosted online for guests to see, download, and order prints.
