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.”

Bellows Styled PhotoBooth

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.

Hotel VT’s IceBar and the VW PhotoBus

Posted 1/22/16 in: Martha’s Vineyard Vermont / Upstate NY VW Photobooth Bus

Making a warm appearance at Hotel VT‘s annual Ice Bar, was our VW PhotoBus “Ruby”. In the above video, you’ll see all the love that was experienced with the VW photobooth. Tons of people poured in the heated interior for selfie after selfie, and Whistle Pig Whiskey after Citizen Cider! Ruby was as hot as the flame juggler, and she got lots of shouts of, “We love you, Ruby!”

Ruby is missed in the Green Mountains, but she is making a splash now in the White Mountains with PhotoBooth Planet New Hampshire. Scarlet, the red & white PhotoBus is now making friends with the Vermonters!

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.”

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!

Photos for Philanthropy

Posted 9/25/14 in: Martha’s Vineyard Vermont / Upstate NY

Here at Photobooth Planet Vermont we are always committed to serving our local community. Throughout our past four years of operation we have volunteered our time and photo booths/buses to help out local organizations and causes in the Burlington area. Some of these include: Relay For Life, Jeudevine Falls Weddings, MOPS @ Essex Alliance Church, beCause Craft Show, Celebrate Recovery and Burlington Moms Blog.

This past weekend we were able to do it again by helping out one of our favorite organizations, Champlain Valley Office of Economic Opportunity. CVOEO provides individuals and families with the basic needs of food, fuel and housing support in times of crisis, and also assists them in getting the necessary education, financial skills and assets to build a stable future.

We had a blast out on the Church Street Marketplace with our newest VW photo bus, Scarlet. People were able to come by both Saturday & Sunday to take “60’s Selfies” which were completely free with a suggested donation to CVOEO.  The event was such a hit Scarlet even made it on two local TV stations, WCAX and ABC22. Maybe her new nickname should be Scarlet the famous photo bus? Check out some pictures below to see how much fun we had at the event!

P.S. We will also be doing the Salute to Our Soldiers wedding giveaway next month at Boyden Farm, so stay tuned!

Say Hello to Scarlet!

scarlet

Today we are happy to announce that we finally named our newly restored 1966 Volkswagen Bus. After a successful month long photo bus naming contest we would like to welcome Scarlet to our Photobooth Planet family. She is our second photo bus joining her sister Ruby.

Our favorite part about naming the bus is it gives her a personality and we realize that’s what people love so much about Ruby too. Thank you all near and far for participating in naming her, we couldn’t have done it without you. Also, a huge thank you to Stacey Hedman for letting us use her awesome photo.  Our lucky winner Shana, who was the first one to suggest the name, will get to enjoy some delicious pizza from American Flatbread.  Don’t forget Scarlet is also available for weddings and other events too!

New Vermont VW PhotoBus

Bus in Waitsfield

Vermont has a new VW PhotoBus! She’s a beautifully restored 1966 Volkswagen Bus that is making a splash around Vermont. She’s the coolest things on the roads of the Green Mountain State.

The picture here is from a gorgeous wedding at the 1824 House in Waitsfield, VT, and the photo was taken by Stacey Hedman. The guests had fun all night long climbing in the back of this groovy machine, taking photo after photo with the custom photobooth. Everyone loves closing the curtain and getting wild and free with smile after smile with their friends and family.
