Custom Design Photos for All Events!

We have been asked about the differences between the quality of our print designs vs. other competitor’s prints. We always recommend that customers find out what other photo booth vendors really mean by “Custom Prints.” Do they provide truly custom designed print graphics or just simple name and date captions at the bottom of the photostrip? Don’t be fooled by companies that claim they do custom graphics and then show you simple captions on a photo strip. They either do not have in-house graphic designers or they do not use professional software.

The Photo Booth Experience: A Wedding Guest Story

An experience with the photo booth… by an anonymous wedding guest.
An essay on observation of an experience – posted to an internet forum that discusses photobooths.

The days of wedding cake smashing and the Electric slide being the highlight of wedding receptions are long gone. Stating that receptions have been taken to a new level would be an understatement. We now live in an era of celebrating marriage with candy and cupcake buffets, gourmet coffee bars, the wobble and most important of all – the photo booth.

There are professional photographers and more than one hundred guests with digital and iPhone cameras capturing the events of the evening, but that’s somehow still not enough.

Cue the photo booth – the old fashioned, newly hip camera in a box that can be rented for around $700 per night. If a bride and groom want insight to their guest’s real personalities, as well as the effects of an open bar, this trendy photo invention is the answer.

Not only does this six-foot tall, white box with a black curtain entertain and give guests an instant four-photo keepsake, it truly brings out the child in everyone.

Around 6p.m. guests tranquilly begin to arrive to the reception, dressed to the nines, contented with the new union formed by their loved ones. Few spot the booth and question what in the world that gawky machine is doing at the edge of the dance floor. Younger females, apparently up to date with the popular wedding trends, immediately recognize the booth and sprint over, totally disregarding the booth workers existence as she attempts to explain the basis of the booth. However, this is just the beginning of the night, the booth worker will definitely be seeing these girls again when they come back for twenty more rounds documenting their night.

“We didn’t know there were all these fun props, can we go in again?” ask the girls in desperation. Sombreros, cowboy, pimp and Uncle Sam hats, batman masks, luminous giant-sized glasses, sparkly feather boas, stick on mustaches, and plastic toy machetes are strewn across a table. The next dilemma for the girls is which costume will be the funniest and most flattering at the same time.

Eventually the overly excited girls relay to the uninformed adults that the big, awkward machine will indeed take your pictures automatically and it just so happens to be the BEST. THING. EVER.

Grandma and Grandpa wait in line confused and borderline overwhelmed by the fiasco of their grandchildren wrapping hot pink boas around their necks and coercing them to make silly faces. “Don’t I need to put a quarter in somewhere?” asks Grandpa. All dolled up in crazed attire, they make their way inside the curtain and shakily sit down on the chairs and smile big. A minute passes and they continue to pose nicely in front of a still screen that reads “Touch here to start.”

After the automated program guides the persons through a series of four photos, the physical strip prints out into a tray within thirty seconds. The tray, below the hidden printer is embellished by colorful flashing lights that quite possibly cast a secret spell on all of the children. The children dressed in their miniature black suits and puffy maroon dresses are awestruck by the foreign luminosity and instantly cling to the side of the booth where they will remain amazed all night. Arguments only break out every sixty seconds over who is privileged enough to grab the freshly printed picture and hand it to the owner.

The kid’s parents are delighted with their freedom to mingle the bar all thanks to the pseudo-daycare booth.

Not only do the guests take home a keepsake strip of their photos, but the bride and groom also get a copy. There is a guestbook to be filled with the photo booth pictures and signatures from the guests. The booth worker glues the duplicate photo strip into the book and instructs the guest to write in the scrapbook next to their photo. “Wait…What do I write? Um..What are other people writing? I don’t know what to put.” contemplates the matron of honor. A few minutes pass and the booth worker eventually suggests, “Perhaps ‘Congratulations’ would be relevant.”

As the night continues and the guests empty their drinks, the more creative the photo booth poses become. Even the most reserved appearing adult guests enter the booth and immediately feel liberated by the little black enclosed curtain. It’s just them alone with the camera, able to act however they desire. For 45 seconds they are hidden from all the commotion of the party to be silly and alone. And maybe a bit inappropriate.

A group of five groomsmen come running over, Bud Light in hand excitedly warning the worker “do not peek at us!” The worker nicely asks the children to step aside as she will grab this strip in order to prevent any confusion among the kids.

The groomsmen joyfully fill out the scrapbook with pride next to their gluteus maximus exposed shot. Scribbling along three pages expressing how delicious the beer was and how their buddies new wife will never compare to their bromance.

With an hour of the reception left, the busy bride and groom have still not made an appearance in the booth. The worker asks the chatty young girls, once again in front of the line, holding their eighteen strips, to please allow the bride and groom to cut for their first session. The bride’s massive white gown makes it difficult for her to fit on the seat. With her new husband awkwardly holding her up, they kiss for the first photo, make silly faces for the second and give each other bunny ears in the third. They pose sweetly for the final photo and as the flash goes, the bride’s mother and little brother, without invitation, whip open the curtain sticking their big heads in the back of the smitten couple’s photo. “PHOTOBOMB” shouts everyone standing around, laughing hysterically.

By the last song of the night, the guestbook for the bride and groom is full of photos and signed with notes and scribbles of love of luck. Dido’s song, Thank You, streams through the speakers as friends and family hug and talk about how perfect the day was. The worker disassembles the booth piece by piece. Shutting off the camera, folding up the curtain. All the pandemonium that occurred inside that little booth diffused for the night. Only to be discovered again by the evidence captured and pasted into that little guestbook. What a laugh that single book will give the bride and groom for years to come.

(Disclaimer: this was written by an anonymous person and posted to the internet, it was not an essay written directly about CTM Photo Booths, but it sums up the experience of most booth services very well!)

Corporate Event Planning & Sponsored Event Activation!

 

ctm-example-1a

There are plenty of corporations that can spend the money on a corporate party planner, dropping thousands of dollars just to have someone do the work for them. Most corporations are looking to save money, and will ask one of their employees to plan their corporate event for them.

There are various aspects that you should consider if you are trying to put together a corporate event. You need to be sure that you take all of these different aspects into consideration, as they will make or break the success of your party.

The Crowd

The first thing that you are going to want to think about when planning a corporate event is the crowd. You want to think about those who are in the audience. If this is a small event, you can simply think about the people that you work with and gauge their personalities. If it is a large corporation you need to dig deeper, looking into the culture of the company and corporation to better understand the mentality and personality of those who will be attending. You want to make sure that the entertainment matches the crowd – a mismatch creates an awkward and uncomfortable environment.

The Demeanor

It is also important for you to consider the demeanor of the event when thinking about planning the event itself. If the event revolves around a charity or a serious cause, certain types of entertainment would be considered in poor taste. If the event is a holiday celebration for a corporation, however, the mood is lighter. This opens up a world of possibilities for the actual event itself.

Appropriate Fun

There are plenty of different things that you can do at a corporate event that would be considered fun.
You simply need to make sure that whatever you choose is appropriate for a corporate and professional setting. Getting a Photo Booth for events is simple. A photo booth for events is a great way to create bonding between coworkers without forcing awkward icebreakers or awkward interactions. An event photo booth is simply one of the many ideas that would be perfect for a corporate event.

It can be difficult for many to plan a corporate event. Many people find it difficult to find a balance between having fun and being professional. You simply need to think about your workplace as a whole and the leadership of that workplace. You will be able to get a strong feel for what is appropriate during the event. Photo Booth rentals are almost always appropriate, allowing co-workers to joke around and have fun in an appropriate way. This is how you have to think of your event – find the things that you can do that will be fun and enjoyable, and yet professional and appropriate.

Tips When Looking for a Photo Booth

The popular trend of having a photo booth at weddings isn’t going anywhere just yet. They offer a great way for both the happy couple and the guests to have fun and commemorate the occasion. If you’re thinking of adding a photo booth to your big day, we have some tips to help you choose the right one. To learn more, we turned to local photo booth rental company, CTM Photo Booths “The demand for photo booths at weddings has been growing,” they say. “Photo booths offer soon-to-be-wed couples a 3-in-1 solution for photography, entertainment and party favors, and it’s just as much fun for children and seniors as it is for young adults. “There are many different types of photo booths now available for couples to choose from so she shares her top three tips for picking the best one for your nuptial needs

Get a visual

Many photo booth rental companies don’t post pictures of their booths on their websites. Before renting one based only on price, request to see the photo booth in person and test it out before making any commitments, CTM advises. If you’re not able to see the booth in person, then request multiple images, as well as the booth’s dimensions. “Photo booths come in all shapes and sizes. A visual not only allows you to see if the booth matches your wedding’s aesthetic, but also lets you see if the booth’s size is ideal for your event space,” Capture the Moment Photo Booths for example, has curved walls, while other booths may have a boxier shape or be completely open with just a backdrop. Some booths are a solid color while others have text and graphic design.

Consider your guest list

Before deciding on a photo booth for your event, think about who will be at your wedding. Is your crowd younger or older? Will they know how to operate a photo booth? Will small children be tall enough to be photographed? Capture the Moment suggests asking your photo booth rental company what the start to finish process will be for guests using the photo booth. “Testing the booth prior to the event before booking is highly recommended so that you can experience it for yourself,” they say. “A photo booth is no fun if no one knows how to use it.”

Add a personal touch

Many photo booths will let you personalize your photo strips. Ask to see the designs that they currently have available and what changes can be made to them, CTM advises. “Your guests will most likely hang on to their photo strips for a long time, so make sure that your prints look the way you want your big day to be remembered”. They also suggests finding out if your rental package includes props, and if so, whether they can be coordinated with your event. If not, ask your rental company if they would be willing to buy some. Lastly, if your rental only offers a black curtain, ask if you can provide your own background. “This way your photo booth will look and feel more a part of your wedding. Every bride loves her wedding colors.”
