Quality photos leave the subjects looking their best, unlike mouth-staining popsicles and confrontational Christmas-shopping tussles. Preserve more than your dignity with today’s Groupon: for $400, you get a three-hour photo-booth rental from Kerri Vision Photography (a $1,200 value).
Kerri Vision Photography's photo-booth rentals spike fun meters at a variety of celebratory events. Velvety curtains enrobe a chamber capacious enough to hold 12 mugs at once, perfect for soccer-team parties or jury-duty reunions. Against a variety of custom backdrops, antics freeze themselves in still images or play out across 15- to 30-second video snippets. Shots materialize on a 22-inch touchscreen outside the booth, enabling duds to be discarded and frame-worthy snaps to be run off in limitless numbers of 4”x6” color or black-and-white prints. As the shutters fly, an attendant remains on hand to help operate the booth, print winning portraits, and offer mini movie reviews.
Within 48 hours of the event, hosts receive a CD containing every festive image, with additional CDs available for $25 each. Like temporary mummification kits, Kerri Vision’s online gallery preserves each snap for 90 days after the event, allowing far-flung friends and relatives a peephole through which to glimpse an evening of goofiness.
