The Facts

WHAT IS THE photo station?

An event within your event.   A photo area will be set up with a backdrop, lights, umbrellas – just what you would envision when you think of a set for a photoshoot.   Guests will be photographed laughing, crying, hugging, making funny faces, making memories that will last a lifetime! Our professional photographer will capture the ridiculous, the sentimental, the genuine moments that make your event memorable!

WHY IS This option BETTER THAN A stand alone photo booth? 

The desired experience is different from event to event. Unlike traditional photo booths, the photo station allows for large groups & families to fit into one picture and it can be set up just about anywhere!  The more traditional photo booth people are all jammed into a booth, the crowd can’t see what is going on inside.  With this open air setup, the booth actually becomes part of the entertainment.  Even the wallflowers will bloom! Instead of receiving a strip of pictures, guests will receive cover-quality 4x6 images taken by a professional photographer.

WHY IS THE photo station different THAN OTHER TYPES OF PHOTO BOOTHS, YOU KNOW THE FREE STANDING PHOTO STATIONS THAT HAVE SOME CAMERA BUILT INTO SOMETHING, THE ONE’S WITH A BUTTON I JUST PUSH TO TAKE THE PHOTO?

Our photo booth is a photo area – an open air interactive set with a professional photographer using professional camera gear and lighting. You aren’t hidden behind pipes and draping – pushing a big red button or stepping on some gadget to get the photo taken – the photographer is going to interact with you – capture real smiles and laughter getting really, really great photos.
