VW Photo Bus at The Roundhouse, Beacon, New York

Posted 11/28/17 in: New Jersey New York

Recently, we received a wonderful note from a lovely couple from an earlier event this year at one of our favorite wedding venues,

Roundhouse |

Roundhouse |https://roundhousebeacon.com/The Roundhouse is a unique, historic property overlooking a beautiful waterfall, rushing creek and bustling street corner in charming Beacon, NY. Our singular name represents several masterfully restored buildings that offer a full-service experience, including a boutique hotel, award-winning American restaurant and popular event space for up to 200 guests.

At this particular wedding, the bride and groom, the families, the ceremony, and the reception, were filled with such love, warmth, and kindness, it was a wonderful evening. One other note: the father of the bride is a long-time Volkswagen mechanic and lover. He has years of experience working on VW’s, and we hit it off right away. We talked about Bella, our 1965 VW Photo Bus, the restoration, opportunities to improve her, and of course, he posed for photo booth photos as well. The community from the event along with the beautiful views of the Hudson Valley in the Fall Season made it a memorable event. Big thanks to Jesse at

for the awesome photos. Also, big thanks to fellow VW lovers at

for decorating The Roundhouse in Beacon, New York.

See the review below for our vintage VW Photo Booth:
“What a blast is the first thing I need to say! We met Bella, Tony’s VW Photobus the afternoon of our wedding, and boy did she have presence out of the gate! People loved the spin on the photobooth! Tony was easy to work and communicate with from initial call to the day of, and made our day so special and unique! If you want the traditional photobooth, he can sure do that too, but bringing Bella along for the ride is just too cool to pass up! It’s something people won’t forget!”

Bellows Styled PhotoBooth

Posted 11/20/17 in: New Jersey New York

 

Our new one-of-a-kind Bellows Style Open Air PhotoBooth!

This Bellows-Style Booth looks like the vintage-style camera with an accordion front. It’ll feel like you and your guests are experiencing an old time photo shoot while in this classic photobooth. Fashioned after the old cameras from a century ago, these hand-made booths are intricately put together to help you and your guests blast back in time as if you were at your great-grandparents’ wedding.

Guests look into the computer tablet below at their poses and smile at the camera lens while the beauty dish flashes to capture their bonding moments together. Just several seconds later, a printed photostrip is offered to them so they will always remember their evening together.

This booth boasts Vermont-handcrafted artisanship of cherry, maple and walnut wood, telescoping bellows, solid brass accents and hand-rubbed Danish Oil finish all in a sleek, compact design. Absolutely gorgeous! It smells nice, too!

Here are some photos of the Bellows Booth in action…

Just like with our unique VW PhotoBus and Classic Booth, we are in the business to help you have a unique and memorable wedding or event without skimping on excellence or elegance.

Take a Trip Back in Time with PhotoBooth Planet

Posted 11/06/17 in: Vermont / Upstate NY VW Photobooth Bus

From an article in Vermont State Homes…

“Photobooth Planet specializes in customizable photo booths for pretty much any occasion. Owner of the company Chris Centracchio joined his friends’ photo booth venture in 2011, taking the company to new heights. In the formative years that followed, the team patented a hard-sided, enclosed booth as well as an open air bellows booth that looked like a century-old camera. Centracchio also spearheaded the development of a Volkswagen photo bus, one of their most popular mobile booths for rent that takes you back in time.”

“We love helping people bond when they are gathered for the most important events of their lives, mainly weddings and special occasions,” Centracchio said. “The photo booths that we offer all have a ‘wow’ factor to them.”

“At Photobooth Planet, you will encounter an array of options. The vintage style, hard-sided photo booth is a classic choice for weddings and engagement parties. Remaining true to the iconic look of the turn-of-the-century booth, there are no theme park antics or pipe-and-drape kits here. Gracefully styled to match the aesthetic sensibilities of a wedding, this photo booth is roomy, elegant, and possesses a whimsical feel. The company can rent booths in most of Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New York, New Jersey, Philadelphia, Connecticut, New Hampshire, Maine, and Vermont.”

“The traditional open air booth and their recently released bellows booth capture images in the open and allow for customizable backdrops. These booths allow for larger groups, and require guests to press a button to have their picture taken. Two identical strips of three glossy photos (black and white or color, and customizable to include text) are produced and ready to view in seconds.”

Our Classic Vintage Photo Booth at NYC’s Standard High Line Hotel

Posted 4/25/17 in: New Jersey New York

We recently set-up our classic vintage photo booth at the Standard High Line in NYC for a lovely Sweet 16.  One of the hippest hotels in Manhattan, the Standard High Line offers fantastic views of the Hudson River and sits adjacent to the High Line, NYC’s only elevated park and by far, one of Manhattan’s most popular New York attractions.  The High Line was formally a rail track, which went out of use in 1980. The 1.45-mile-long strip was resurrected in 2009 and turned into one of the best NYC Parks, which runs from Hudson Yards to the northern edge of Chelsea.  Read more about the High Line here at Time Out New York.  Our classic vintage photo booth fit perfectly with the decor at the Standard Hotel, matching the vintage New York theme.  Guests were in and out of our vintage photo booth all evening!  Great event space and perfect decor for our vintage classic photo booth!

All set up with our classic vintage photo booth at the Standard High Line Hotel in NYC
