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 package from Dream Photo Booth by Dreams Studio Wedding Photography (a $1,450 value).
The booth-based arm of Dreams Studio Wedding Photography, Dream Photo Booth leases its shot-snapping chamber in four-hour increments along with all-inclusive packages that come with 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. All pictures are archived in an online gallery that is available for nine subsequent months, a high-resolution CD, and a hardcover guestbook, 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.
