Authentic, Nostalgic, Elegant – The Vintage Photo Booth

Posted 2/28/18 in: Connecticut Massachusetts

Last year, several of us from Photobooth Planet attended the world’s largest Photo Booth trade show in Vegas learning from other photo booth experts, industry leaders, and business owners.  We also walked through the exhibit floor, observing the wide variety of new camera technology and photo booth designs available for weddings, events, and corporate parties. Amidst the constant flood of new photo booth technology and innovations, it was easy to get caught up in the hype of new tools – robots and mirror booths are two examples. With the current pace of innovation, any seemingly great idea can be made obsolete in a couple years. So we asked ourselves: what made the original photo booth so popular on boardwalks, movie theaters, and five-and-dimes?  While innovators constantly worked on refining and improving the photo booth itself, at some point, they all landed on the final design of an enclosed booth, a curtain, a simple camera, and excellent quality photo prints. As we receive many inquiries for different types of photo booths, our approach is pretty much the same. Keep it simple, and keep it timeless. Our vintage, classic photo booth has a minimalist design, classic construction, with excellent camera technology ideal for “attention-to-detail” weddings in Mystic (Saltwater Farm Vineyard, Jonthan Edwards Winery, The Mystic Seaport), Hartford (Bond Ballroom), Fairfield County, or anywhere else in Connecticut where people are getting married.  While innovation remains key for any business model, in this age of instant technology, finding an updated, yet vintage design can set your event apart.  We find that our photo booth bridges generational gaps, appealing to both the old-fashion, pre-internet generation and the tech-savvy generations as well. As you research your photo booth options, we highly recommend our classic photo booth – simple, elegant, timeless.

Everyone can’t always make it out for the wedding reception.  But with facetime and a little ingenuity, everyone can virtually attend.  This clever gent brought his significant other into the photo booth with him so the photo guestbook would be complete.  Clever man.  Great photo-strip!
