Bellows Styled PhotoBooth

Posted 7/31/16 in: Martha’s Vineyard New Hampshire / Northern MA / Southern ME Vermont / Upstate NY

 

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.

Your Creative Guests

I love weddings, one of many reasons, the creative aspects. In a wedding the Bride and Groom have the ability to shows show their personalities, individually and as a couple by the dozens of choices they make regarding the ceremony and reception. How all those choices come together, from colors, lighting, venue, etc. says a great deal about the couple on their big day.

Now, what about the guests, the people celebrating with the couple? What allows them to express their creativity and make their mark. A PHOTOBOOTH! There is nothing at a wedding like a photo booth that allows guests to show who they are creatively while capturing memories for themselves and the couple. Whether it’s poses, props, or even just a genuine smile. Guests love photobooths because in the midst of a wedding full of creativity, they get to express their own. 3 Pictures at a time.

Where were you to start 2015? – In a photobooth

Posted 1/30/15 in: New Hampshire / Northern MA / Southern ME

One of the great joys of this business is that you get to meet many wonderful people. From my experience, my two favorite so far have been Kerry and Matt. I had the pleasure of bringing my classic vintage photo booth to their wedding in Boston, Mass on New Years Eve. In addition to the bride and groom being amazing, the food was delicious, the guests were fun and the venue was beautiful. Our photobooth fit right into the aesthetics. As with all weddings we do, everyone had a blast in our booth all night, but as New Years approached, one group was bound to remember where they were at as the clock struck twelve. What a great way to ring in a New Year and have the proof to remember just where you were. It might even start a new tradition. What moments to do you want to always remember, with the help of a photo booth, we’ll make sure to never forget.

Photographer’s Wedding Booths?

Posted 12/08/14 in: New Hampshire / Northern MA / Southern ME New Jersey New York Philadelphia Vermont / Upstate NY

Let’s face it, the PhotoBooth craze is on! Everyone loves gathering with friends and family to take goofy, sentimental and just all out crazy photos. So, many different wedding professionals are also creating their own booths, as an “add-on”.

We, at PhotoBooth Planet, have photo booth rentals as our specialty and as our only thing, so we know how to deliver the best possible experience, with our Classic Booths and our VW Photobuses (in New England).

If a photographer is offering a booth to bundle in to a photography package, the price may seem pleasing, but will it be for you and your guests once the great day of your wedding or event arrives?

A Photographer’s PhotoBooth (unlike ours)
Consider what the photographer is setting up for you…
  • Is it enclosed? When your guests close the curtain, that’s when they let loose and have fun.
  • Does the photographer’s booth print the photostrips on the spot and do they create a guest book for you? Your guests will want the immediate gratification, and you’ll want a copy of each in a custom guest book.
  • If they print out the strips, can you see samples so you know they are quality? I know of several photographers who mean well to set up booths, but the experience and quality just isn’t there because it’s just their “add-on”.
  • How will the “booth” look in the grand scheme of what you’re hoping for in your wedding? Will it look like a studio photoshoot (ie. tripod and backdrop with lights)? Imagine it in the big picture.
  • Does the photographer have someone giving full attention to the booth, in case anything goes wrong? You don’t want any downtime while people are “in the mood”.
  • Does your photographer have photos of their photobooth that you can see? It’s crucial to know exactly what you’re getting.
  • What will your guests experience and what will they say after the wedding about their time in the photobooth? This is the most important day for you and your family, and you want them to have great memories of it.
Just some things to ask and think about…

Jessie Ware’s Photobooth Video

Posted 12/03/14 in: Connecticut Featured Martha’s Vineyard Massachusetts New Hampshire / Northern MA / Southern ME New Jersey New York Philadelphia Rhode Island Vermont / Upstate NY

At Photobooth Planet, we always find that people experience emotional bonding moments in our booths, whether at weddings, parties or events. In this music video, Jessie Ware takes her song “You & I (Forever)” and uses a vintage photobooth to illustrate friends, lovers, family, etc. bonding together while taking timeless photos. Technology changes, yet relationships will be forever. Photo booths bring both together – and prints the moments on photostrips to cherish for many years to come.

Some responses to Jessie’s video on YouTube:

  • This is AMAZING! I’m crying!
  • Gorgeous video 🙂 Its about the one’s we love <3
  • I like this very much the song the music the video the old couple

What’s your response?

From DirectLyrics.com blog post

“Here’s what Jessie’s label’s press release says: “In celebration of the themes of love and life-long companionship in the song, Jessie made an open invitation to family, friends and fans to feature in the video for the new single. People were asked to come down to the shoot in a photobooth, whether that was with friends, lovers, married couples, family, siblings – all were invited to be on film. The results are a touching montage of a moment captured in time to the backdrop of You & I (Forever)’s heartwarming message”. Aw! Very heart-warming indeed. The scenes with the huggable grandparents just broke my heart in pieces.”

Ruby The PhotoBus at UNH

What are a few things we all love? Football, tailgating, and family. So let’s bring them all together and remember the moment. Great idea. This past weekend we got to bring “Ruby” our beloved VW photobus to Wildcat Country at the University of New Hampshire. We set up this mobile photo booth between the football field and the tailgating and with the help of a local business, provided photobooth pictures for  families and fans. People had so much fun with Ruby, and the great New Hampshire fans took pictures and memories home with them to remember the amazing victory, the beautiful day and the weekend they got to spend with their family. Go CATS!

Photo booths…an essential or an add-on?

My wife and I just got back from a friend’s wedding here in NH. It was a great night. The ceremony was touching, the reception was fun, the food was great and we danced for two hours till our feet hurt. (Confession: I LOVE TO DANCE.) And, WE LOVE WEDDINGS.  There were a lot of photos taken and hash tagged, but no photo booth.  Which led me to ask this question. Is a photo booth essential or an add-on? Now, I think photographers are great, and essential to document the night, but I’ve never seen one systematically capture everyone that attends. For everyone in attendance, I believe they are there for a reason, to help celebrate the love and commitment of the couple they care about. So, you want to make sure you are able to remember everyone that came that special day to celebrate the start of your new life together. In my mind, as I observed at this wedding in NH, nothing does this better than a photo booth. They get a photo strip to remember that great day they celebrated with you and you get a photo strip in your guest book to remember that great day you celebrated with them. My wife and I will be married ten years this spring and we remember the great time we had at our wedding reception in NH but despite all the pictures, we don’t remember who all came. I now wish we had a photo booth that night to remember all our wonderful friends and family that celebrated with us. Which answers the question in my mind, I think a photo booth is essential to be able to remember ALL the people who celebrated with you, even a decade later. Not to mention, to have a lot of fun.

The PhotoBooth Kid

Posted 10/15/14 in: Connecticut Featured Martha’s Vineyard Massachusetts New Hampshire / Northern MA / Southern ME New Jersey New York Philadelphia Rhode Island Sidebar Vermont / Upstate NY

Check out this kid who took full advantage of our Classic Booth at a recent wedding.

Kids love photobooths and often are the ones who kick off the evening, flashing grins, grimaces, tongues, squints, props and crazy expressions. Soon, they start pulling the older generations into the booth, and then the adults take over – posing, cramming with friends, displaying facial contortions and laughing through the night. The inter-generational photos in the booth become treasures to keep for years to come. It doesn’t matter how old one is; all ages enjoy a good session in the photo booth!
