Steven Burchard is used to entertaining an audience—he spent 13 years commanding the stage as a magician. So when he established Magical Memories Entertainment, he already boasted a solid understanding of what keeps crowds captivated. That’s why he and his team provide all the trappings for a memorable bash: DJs and bands; clowns, fortunetellers, and caricaturists; photographers and photo booths; and even arcade and carnival games.
With Flip a Hit?s affordable alternatives to expensive event-videography packages, friends and family members become the creative directors behind big events such as weddings, bar mitzvahs, and birthday parties. Days before the event, the company ships out five pocket-sized HD video cameras so the motley film crew can capture behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with the bride?s stunt double. Multiple roving cameras catch views that a professional videographer might not, and unique angles that produce a wide range of classic and candid footage. After sending the recordings and equipment back to Flip a Hit, the business?s professional editors refine the raw footage and mail back a highlight reel in addition to the raw footage, all of which can also be hosted online.
InsideOutBooth makes its name capturing natural images of people, whether they're smiling at a wedding or half-blinking as they do in all photos. A photobooth without the booth structure, the company's open-air photography area lets many people pose together in a single shot. To help things run smoothly, attendants come along for every event and set up, run the booth, and clean up when the party's done. Packages streamline the many additional options available to party hosts, with some adding custom backdrop colors or even green screens to set images against any custom scenes. Red carpet-style set ups, wood or plastic frames for prints, and customized posters commemorating the event can also be added on.
Oversize sunglasses, novelty hats, or simple smiles bedeck partygoers at weddings, birthdays, and corporate events as they pile into Fox Photo Lounge’s spacious photo booths. Behind the booth’s custom privacy drape, guests strike free-form poses while a modern digital camera clicks color or black-and-white photos. The prints—which can be arranged in single, double, or four-photo layouts—reel out of the printer embossed with the details of the event, helping commemorate the occasion when hosts file them into a complimentary scrapbook or the filing cabinet in their handbags.
Fox Photo Lounge attendants set up all equipment before events and stay on hand for the duration of the rental to ensure a smooth, problem-free evening. In addition to personalized prints and decorative scrapbooks, all photo packages include a USB storage device filled with photos guests can share online or print at home.
With their exotic look and beverages, tiki bars evoke faraway tropical paradises. Constructed from authentic bamboo and thatch, the rental tiki bars from Tiki Photo 2 Go bring that sense of bliss to events throughout Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, and Connecticut. Members of Tiki Photo 2 Go’s bartending team—many of whom draw on more than 10 years of experience—craft tropical drinks as guests lounge around the bar donning hats and leis upon request.
More props such as boas, masks, and oversized sunglasses await visitors at one of Tiki Photo 2 Go’s photo booths. The company’s 5'x5' and 10'x10' booths accommodate up to 8 and 20 guests, respectively, who strike poses for a series of four shots displayed on a monitor inside the booth. A high-speed printer dispenses unlimited pairs of sepia, black-and-white, or color prints within seconds—one for guests to include in their scrapbook and one to stuff in a stranger's. The strips can be customized with a personalized logo, message, or colors that match the colors and theme of your event.
Joker Photobooths' attendants haul their booths to pump up the festivities at weddings, bar and bat mitzvahs, and graduation parties across the east coast. Each booth is outfitted with a camera that snaps high-resolution images (more than 10 megapixels) as subjects strike poses. Logos and captions add a personalized touch to photos, which are assembled as classic 2 x 6 inch photo strips. The booth can be customized to suit various color schemes, welcoming up to four guests at a time to pose before one of 11 backgrounds. During each event, Joker Photobooths' staff will assemble photo albums that contain a copy of every photo taken at the event.
