Photo Booths & Weddings

Friday, March 8th, 2013

From Contributing Blogger Sofia Angeli:

 

You see them in most events these days.  And they’re often there to add fun to the occasions.   They’ve actually become a trend for parties, especially wedding receptions. Photo booths have definitely come a long way from the early kiosks that were mainly there to provide instant ID photos and, at times, fun to kids and kids-at-heart.  But how did the photo booth reach its new status of becoming almost a staple in weddings today?

A bit of history

The curtained photo booth that most people remember today is attributed to Russian Anatol Josepho.  The one standing on Broadway, New York City, USA in 1925 is said to be the first of the many photo booths to come later.

In those days, digital cameras were never thought of and it took days for regular consumers to have their photos printed out.  But this novelty machine generated photo prints in about 10 minutes.  For those who needed to have their faces on ID cards, necessary documents, application forms, etc., it was a very welcome convenience.  And for those who wanted a new kind of entertainment or fun souvenir, well, it was also a very welcome convenience.

Photo sticker booths

The Japanese introduced a version of the photo booth that made the machine more entertaining than it was before.  In the 1990s, the photo sticker booth came about in Japan and also became a trend in South Korea, Taiwan, the Philippines and other Asian countries. It was also introduced in Australia, Europe and North America.

This opened up the people’s minds to the idea of the photo booth being used mainly for fun and souvenir purposes.   For a minimal amount, you can have your solo or group photo taken and have them printed on sticker paper.  You can also pick the design or background that you want.

The main reason why most adults didn’t fully embrace this purikura, the Japanese shortened word for “print club,” is that it features mostly animé designs that are quite juvenile for the tastes of many.  Customers of these Japanese photo sticker booths are mostly teenagers.

Photo booths and engagement rings

Then came someone who had this ingenious idea of using the enclosed photo booth as the venue for his marriage proposal.  Now, it’s become a logical choice for those who’d like to ask someone to marry them.

As long as you’ve got good timing, the photo booth will provide you an image capture series of the surprise, happiness and, possibly, tears when you popped the question and presented the ring to her.  And it provides a good amount of privacy, too.

Wedding fun and favours

As mentioned earlier, the photo booth is now a famous entertainment alternative in wedding celebrations.  Most photo booth rentals can now even offer you a selection of outputs – usually black-and-white prints, stickers and full-colour photos.

You can use them not just for you and your guests to get wacky photos with props and a themed backdrop.  Some photo booth services also offer image albums that can replace the old-school store-bought guest book.  Your guests can write their wishes and notes to you on that album.  You can even hold a contest for the most hilarious pose or any other category that would go with your theme.

Decades ago, you probably won’t see photo booths and weddings in the same sentence.  But now, this image capture machine attracts the second longest queue in a wedding – next to the buffet.

If you’re considering having a photo booth in your own wedding reception, talk to the rental company about your theme and your plans for the party.  Remember how the current photo booth craze came about, and don’t be surprised if they can offer you some ideas you never thought were possible.

How the Fiscal Cliff was Averted

Saturday, January 5th, 2013

John & Harry

 

‘Twas the night before New Year when all through the House

Both sides were pointing “He is the louse”.

The cliff was for certain that very night

For no one would budge without a dog fight.

 

The Prez was nestled all snug in his bed

While visions of re-election still danced in his head.

Then John in his jacket and Harry his cap

Said “One way to solve this – bring in Top Hat”

 

So into the photo booth they went arm in arm

For once they agreed – “What is the harm”.

One smile at the camera that almost looked real

That’s how it happened – the Fiscal Cliff deal.

 

Well almost.

 

Happy New Year from Top Hat Photo Booths!

Top Hat Photo Booths LOVES to hear from our happy customer!  It isn't often that a customer will take the time to call you when they are happy, we were delighted to hear from the MOB (mother of the bride) of a recent event.  The "mom" wasn't sure what to expect with the photo booth or how the reception would work with a photo booth.  By the end of the evening the mother and father and been in the booth several times and LOVED IT!

Of course we had our top notch Technicians at the event to be sure that everything worked flawlessly, as usual.  We also do a personalized logo for the bride with the bride and groom's name and wedding date and in the wedding colors and font.    The bride and mother were also thrilled with the Memory Book.Top Hat Photo Booths can make your wedding or event just as special.  Visit us at:  www.tophatphotobooths.com for more infomraiton.  If you are getting married in 2013 then this is the time to be reserving your booth.  Top Hat is located in many cities in the east along with providing photo booth rentals in Indianapolis Photo Booth Rentals and the best Chicago photo booth rentals.
