I am so happy to announce that the PHOTO BOOTH is finally event ready!!
The design process has been kind of long but I love working with my hands so I enjoyed every step of the way. (Also I've probably taken more selfies in the last month than the rest of my life up until I starded this project.)
The booth can operate in a few different ways but my favorite is as a "GIF photo booth". That's the ones that move (Remember the photos in Harry Potter? Well that's a little different but you get the idea.)
Alex and I have spent a few hours testing the different settings and absolutely laughed the most during the GIF phase of tests. This style of booth is a hilariously awesome way to capture a guest book at your next event!
When you approach the booth you are greeted by a screen that says "Tap to Start Booth" once you tap a count down timer starts and it instructs you to look at the camera.
SNAP! SNAP! SNAP! SNAP!
It takes your photo or GIF and shows you a preview. At this time you have the option to retake your session OR you can enter your phone number / email and if the venue has WiFi you will receive your Facebook and Instagram ready image in a matter of moments! After the event, the party host will receive a gallery with every image from the night!
The booth is available for rent immediately in the Billings and Red Lodge areas, if you are interested in having this booth at you next event contact me HERE!

(Oh... and we adopted a cat!!!)
Future expansion of the photo booth will include a prop box, printer, an auxiliary power unit and a mobile hot spot.
