The Bellows Booth

Posted 1/15/19 in: Connecticut Massachusetts Rhode Island
Our¬†open-air photo booth¬†option: the “Bellows Booth”¬†is modeled after the old-fashioned cameras of yesteryear.¬† Hand-crafted from maple and cherry, the elegant design of the Bellows Booth will enhance the decor of your event and delight guests.¬† It truly is a work of art.
After posing for three photos in front of a back-drop of your choosing, two identical strips of high-quality, glossy photos (black and white or color, and customizable to include text) are printed out.¬† Guests take one as a favor and we keep the other for a “photo guest book” which is assembled on-site for you by our attendant.
This open air photo booth option is available in Rhode Island, Connecticut, and Massachusetts.

Authentic, Nostalgic, Elegant – The Vintage Photo Booth

Photo booth for rent in CT, RI, and MA

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!

A+ for tuxes. ¬†A for handsomeness. ¬†A- for mugging at the camera. ¬†Overall solid “A” work here from these two gentlemen. ¬†I might also point out the lovely, hydrangea blue curtain Polina and Jay chose for the ¬†photo booth rental at their wedding in Newport RI. ¬† In addition to Burgundy (our most popular curtain color), we also have pink, purple, and damask (not available in all states).

Photo booth rental for Block Island, RI birthday party

This crowd knew how to party. ¬†Emphasis here on¬†crowd.¬† Many people assume we can only fit two or three folks into a Photobooth Planet photo booth. ¬†Oh no. ¬†We have had 8,9, and 10+ cram in there. ¬†Makes for a great photo and an authentic moment of “closeness” for the guests. ¬†Here, too, you can see the upside and downside of having a lot of props. ¬†Funny pic, but you can’t really tell who the people wearing props are. ¬†For a birthday party – sure…go nuts with the props. ¬†But for a wedding, minimal props is the way to go. ¬†Your guests are dressed to the nines already. ¬†And on your ten year anniversary when you pull out the photo guestbook we created for you at your wedding reception, you are going to want to see who was there – and what they actually looked like way back then. ¬†Anyway, enough about props. ¬†This post was intended to illustrate that we can fit a lot more people in our booths than you might at first think.
