Photographs transport people to an earlier time without the need to master quantum physics or pay tolls associated with America's wormhole highways. Capture fleeting moments for future examination with today's Groupon: for $399, you get a three-hour digital-photo-booth rental and unlimited prints from Eventful Rental (an $1,100 value).
Eventful Rental photo booths unite event guests in picture-posing revelry, capturing moments to be framed, scrapbooked, and shared years after partygoers disperse. Free from the photographers who stalked the picture boxes of foretime, Eventful Rental's photo booths put creative control in the hands of the subjects, allowing patrons to choose from multiple print options—including classic double strips and less conventional postcard layouts—and whether to incarcerate themselves in a two-dimensional eternity that is a traditional black-and-white or vibrantly colorful. The booths also offer guests modern refinements such as a customized welcome screen, the ability to immediately upload each photo to Facebook, and a feature that allows guests to leave behind 30-second video messages for event hosts. An Eventful Rental attendant ensures that the booth works smoothly throughout the event and also presides over a box of whimsical and highly photogenic props. After the party, clients receive an exhaustive catalog of all pictures and video messages on a digital disk that they can enjoy for years to come or secretly deposit in their child's elementary-school time capsule. A fee of $75 an hour will be assessed for any booth usage in excess of three hours, and Eventful Rental will travel anywhere within 25 miles of Springfield at no additional charge.
