As a filmmaker and photographer, Brett Carlson brings a director's instinct to all the images he shoots. He's constantly creating new visual stories as the owner of Stolen Frames Photography, where he specializes in headshot and portrait photography as well as something a little more unorthodox—the manned photo booth. At weddings, parties, and other special events, he'll set up shop in a booth where he'll capture artistic group shots that an unfeeling camera could not. He also provides props and backgrounds to add another element to these photographs and a live slideshow of these images will play during the event.
FreeAir Photo Booth ups the ante at parties with its light and compact booths that set up in about five minutes and sport 20-inch touchscreen systems. To capture lively moments in crystal clarity for posterity, the booths are equipped with LED studio-quality lighting, Canon DSLR cameras, and dye-sub printers that develop 2”x6” photo strips in seven seconds.
Cean Orrett, an avid shutterbug since age 5, has captained a team of likeminded photographers at Cean One Photography Studios for more than 15 years. Rather than relying on the same setups and compositions for every shoot, Cean and his team customize their approach to the clients in question, whether they're newlyweds or high school seniors. Depending on their clients' preferences, they shoot sessions inside their San Diego studio or in the great outdoors throughout California, capturing candid images to suit each subject's personality. The same guiding principles fuel Cean One’s film subset, in which he documents milestone events such as parties, weddings, or baby's first doctoral thesis.
Westside Photo Booths makes it fun and easy to memorialize events of all kinds with its selection of booths. Enclosed photo booths, which comfortably fit up to 12, are outfitted with solid-color backgrounds, and open-air booths incorporate the surrounding environment. Optional upgrades allow users to include personal designs or text, and a 10'x10' green-screen background offers Hollywood-style projections. Touchscreen controls in each booth enable quick setting selections for photo and video. West Side grants all of its customers perks such as unlimited double prints with a custom strip layout, a USB drive to store all of the evening's images, and a chest of colorful accessories and props.
In My Fantastic Event’s photo booth shoots, partygoers ham it up for the camera alongside Vikings and Groucho Marx. These colorful characters are thanks to the props that come with each photo booth rental, ranging from horned Viking hats and Groucho glasses to oversized sunglasses. And despite the popularity of their photo booth rentals, the event planning agency’s services don’t stop at photography. The team can also create centerpieces from candles and flowers, lay out candy buffets, and whip up platters of cake pops that sing barber shop quartet classics.
