Being in front of a Pics 2 You photo-booth camera brings out partygoers' silly sides. Inside each curtained booth, goofy faces and poses wriggle their way out of even the sternest of subjects before the flash goes off and the paper photos print. If the camera itself isn't enough to bring out the giggles, numerous props, such as thick-rimmed glasses, maracas, and straw hats, add an air of absurdity to any shoot. Additionally, Pics 2 You booths print two images of every shot to ensure no laugh-inducing pic is lost—one for the guest to take home and one for the DMV to replace a driver's outdated license photo.
Frank Raffa started DJing when it meant spinning vinyl records on a turntable. Nowadays, he uses his more than 20 years of experience to helm Sound Sensation DJs, a team of party starters who play everything from classic rock to One Direction. Music is just one of the ways they add pizzazz to events, however. The team also creates custom light displays, equip event spaces with photo booths, and host game shows so that party guests aren't forced to entertain themselves by constructing a leaning tower of cocktail weenies.
Paparazzi Photo Booths' 2"x6" photo strips are mementos, party favors, and portraits, all at once.

The black-and-red booth functions equally well at indoor or outdoor events.

The four veteran pic-snappers of Iluminada Photography commemorate special events with stylish, modern pictures. With a focus on weddings, the photographers spend the big day compiling impressive collections of posed shots, candids, and alibi-establishing portraits of guests standing by clocks. Albums wind up on the studio's password-protected event page, letting clients search out their favorites to save and print. Illuminada also offers photo booth rental for those who want to add some extra fun to their wedding or party, with guests snapping quick pictures of themselves behind the curtain. Beyond documenting all manner of merriment, the shutterbugs at Iluminada help newly-weds give back to the community by donating a percentage of every wedding package to the charity of the couple's choice.
