Billy Dickson and the photographers at Just Shoot Me Photography specialize in chronicling two of the most memorable times in life: the emotion and excitement of a wedding day and the wonder at the introduction of a newborn. During weddings, the team captures the big moments—the march down the aisle, the first dance—but they also spy subtle moments that evoke the mood of the day: a ring gleaming on a side table as the bride gets ready, or a close-up of a bridesmaid's hands as she clutches a bouquet of flowers.
The team also shines working around infants, often photographing babies as young as 4–14 days old. They adore shots in which parents cradle their newborns in their hands, a pose which puts the tiny size of the mini models in perspective. Brothers and sisters can join in these portraits, too, stepping off to the side to play a Nintendo 64 game console or discuss how to convince their parents to name their new sibling "Ludwig van Baby" when it's not their turn in the spotlight anymore.
The people who pose for Peekabooth photos are mostly Vikings or celebrities––if you judge by their horned helmets and oversized sunglasses, that is. Really, those accessories are just props from the booths' eclectic prop boxes, which are include in each rental. An attendant oversees the booths, too, answering revelers' questions about how to pose, or whether vampires can be seen in photographs. Along with the helpful attendant, the Sony sub-dye printers churn out unlimited high-quality prints, producing double copies a mere 10 seconds after the posing session ends.
Whether choosing the open-air or enclosed setup, Ventura County’s MoJo Photo Booth’s picture nooks add extra excitement to parties and special events. Guests can clamber into booths or before the open-air setups adorned in props such as fedoras and oversize sunglasses to pose for posterity. During events, they get unlimited prints, and an onsite attendant stands by to ensure smooth operation.
Thanks to its spacious open-air design, Caught Up In The Moment Photo Booth Services' photo booth can hold as many as 10 people for memorable group portraits. If desired, the company's attendants can enclose booths with a canopy for a more traditional look. Those attendants?each of whom has passed a background check?also operate the booths and troubleshoot any issues, ensuring that guests get maximum enjoyment out of the rental. In addition to printing unlimited photos, the booth offers instant Facebook uploads.
Yuen Lui Studio has been creating photographic heirlooms since time began in 1947. During the photo session ($25 for one person, $30 for up to eight), models can surrender their souls to the camera indoors at Yuen Lui's studio or let nature provide the backdrop at a choice of 11 outdoor beach locales. After flashing their way through a set of expressions, customers should have enough data to upgrade the framed family photos that have been hanging on the wall for the past 600 years. As proof that the photo shoot actually happened, Yuen Lui Studio will transform a single pose into one 8”x10” print ($79), two 3”x5” prints ($36 for the first, $30 for the second), eight wallet-sized prints ($33 for the first four, $27 for the rest), and a disc that holds the pose as a digital prisoner ($250).
