Michelle of Pink Dandelion Photography takes a playful approach to capturing portraits. She often uses off-kilter angles and unique close-ups, always staying on the lookout for candid shots. She can snap memorable photos indoors or out, in the hazy morning or at twilight, and in classic black and white or vibrant color. The business also offers wedding videography to ensure all the big day’s big moments are preserved, from the bridesmaids’ preparation to the moment when the best man rides his motorcycle through the wedding cake.
Customers can take their own photos by renting Pink Dandelion’s KC Hoot Booth, a full-size, touch-screen photo booth. Equipped with props such as animal hats, crowns, and oversized sunglasses, the booth dispenses black-and-white and full-color prints to help partygoers remember a fun event forever.
For large groups, photo booths often pose the problem of how to split up, tearing apart friendships and relationships as their members split into small enough contingents to fit inside. Fortunately, SillySide Photo Booth keeps friendly circles intact with its open-air photo stations, which can accommodate up to 12 event guests at once. A selection of props such as hats, boas, and glasses keep the proceedings light, and unlimited photo strips ensure everyone can be in the spotlight. Fun additions include commemorative photo books, print sleeves with ribbons, and magnetic frames for attaching to refrigerators or sticking all over the host’s car.
KC Fun Photo Booths’ state-of-the-art picture-takers are built for customizability—their curtained confines are expandable from 6’ x 6’ to 10’ x 10’ in order to accommodate large groups and adolescent horses. A touchscreen console controls the booth’s 18-megapixel camera, sending unlimited shots to the photo printer and an online gallery. A professional attendant keeps photos flowing, and a selection of props adds levity to group portraits.
Photos taken in a booth probably don't need to look as quality as portraits taken in a studio—but don't tell STL Fun Photobooth that. Each of their expandable booths comes equipped with photography lighting that illuminates subjects evenly. The 18-megapixel camera snaps high-definition shots or records video, and a photo printer reels off studio-grade prints. Guests use a 21.5-inch touchscreen to edit specifics of the shoot, such as opting for black-and-white prints.
