Digital technology has allowed for the introduction of many new art forms, just as Leonardo da Vinci once predicted on his blog. Upload a masterpiece with today's Groupon: for $550, you get a four-hour photo-booth rental from Dreams Studio Wedding Photography (a $1,300 value). This Groupon is valid anywhere with New York City and 20 miles outside city limits; bookings exceeding 20 miles will result in an additional charge of $4 per mile.
Deemed a "Best of 2011" Knot Pick and winner of Wedding Wire's "Bride's Choice Awards 2011," Dreams Studio Wedding Photography leases its Dream Photo Booth in four-hour increments as part of all-inclusive packages accompanied by the services of an attendant and a variety of ways to access the resulting images. Voguing models can dip into the booth attendant's box of props, filled with accouterments including bowties, sombreros, and colorful eyeglasses. Like a dog attempting to eat broccoli, the booth spits out prints in 15 seconds flat. All pictures are archived in an online gallery that is available for nine subsequent months, burned onto a high-resolution CD, and exhaustively time-stamped in an attempt to precisely track mustache growth over the course of the evening.
Dreams Studio Wedding Photography
Husband-wife duo Mark and Marina Frost know what it's like. They saw each other from the opposite ends of a crowded room. They felt a pull toward one another. They knew. Since then, they've been committed not only to one another, but to helping other couples document their own stories through gorgeous wedding and engagement photography. Their expertly lit and strikingly composed shots capture moments big and little: a boutonniere waiting to be pinned on a lapel, the laughter of giddy bridesmaids, newlyweds clasping hands on the dance floor.
Their excitement for each couple and attention to the little things has earned them accolades such as The Knot's Best of Weddings award and Wedding Wire's Bride's Choice award, each for three years running. In addition to wedding-related photography, they also have a photo-booth-rental service for couples who want to remember what their guests looked like 50 years later, when they'll be uploaded to flying cars—the license of which will still only be earned after a four-hour wait at the DMV.
