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 can be assembled as classic photo strips or grids. 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. After each event, Joker Photobooths' staff will assemble photo albums that contain a copy of every photo taken at the event.
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.
It didn't take long in life for Tiffani Ursillo to realize she loved spending time in the weight room more than her friends, but it took years for her personal passion to transform into a full-blown career. When her job in corporate America disappeared, she decided to earn a personal training certification from the National Academy of Sports Medicine and pursue her life-long dream of being a fitness guru. She started training her friends and developing new exercise routines with her husband, eventually growing these group sessions into TNT Bootcamps.
Today, Ursillo helps men and women discover fitter versions of themselves via intense boot-camp sessions designed to exhaust and bolster the muscles. She supplements her boot-camp regimens with one-on-one personal consultations and free nutritional counseling, which is the only way to help bruised apples emotionally heal after being plucked from their favorite branch.
