How it works

The Self Portrait Station is the newest evolution in photo booth fun and technology. Our motto is "you pose, you click, we print," and it works pretty much just like that! Our booth isn't actually a booth at all. With no confining walls, you're free to gather all your friends and go nuts! The fun of posing and clicking with friends is irresistible. The Self Portrait Station doesn't just capture and print photos, it captures the essence and energy of the event! Call us for your next party!!

A Make-Believe Matrimonial Shindig - Phoenix Photo Booth

What a fabulous party! The Make-Believe Matrimonial Shindig, hosted by Gina of Fiori Floral, James Barnett and The Duce was a really interesting way to showcase a venue and vendors. There was a real fake wedding, tasty treats, lovely decor and, of course, the photo booth! With the help of James, who is not only a photographer, but an artist as well, we made the booth a little more interesting. James created some amazing old school cutouts for guests to use, and we decorated the backdrop to look like a beach scene. So fun!

If you're interested in having James create a custom cutout for your event, just let us know! We'd also love to talk with you about creating a custom paper-cut backdrop!

Beachy surf music was provided by the amazing The Surfside IV, who were unfortunately down one member last night.

Whew, we're pooped! We had too much fun last night at Joc's 40th Bday Bash at the Hotel Valley Ho. The theme was old school hip hop.

Thanks, Joc and Lesley, for including us in your great celebration!

Monique & Jonathan - Phoenix Wedding Photo Booth

We spent last night with Monique and Jonathan during the cocktail hour of their wedding reception at Stonebridge Manor. So much fun! Monique took care of all the fabulous details: she made the backdrop, the frames and mustaches and lips.

Monique chose our photo booth's printless package, which is a great option for a bride on a budget! We come to your event, setup a camera, light and a backdrop. Then your guests click away! There's no limit on how many pictures they shoot. Within one week, the images will be available online for your guests to order. We will also send you a disc of the images you can use to make prints for yourself!

The guests had a blast! Thanks for including us in your celebration, Monique and Jonathan, and congratulations!

Props - Phoenix Photo Booth

So, I'm not the biggest fan of props in a photo booth. Feather boas kinda make me cringe. But when I saw these, I just knew I had to have them. So I bought a few. Ok, more than a few. I'll let you know when they arrive, because I'm thinking I'll make Michael try them all on :)

Oh, and I got a couple of these, too. They shipped today, and should be here in time for my clients this weekend to use them if they so desire!!

Patterned Backdrops!! - Phoenix Photo Booth

Wow. I'm really excited. I love fabric, I love pattern, and I am so pleased that we have decided to offer these two of my favorite things as backdrops for our photo booth! Now don't get me wrong, I love our clean, bright and fun paper backdrops. But I really think a little pattern could really take your booth to the next level!

How it works:
I've found a fabulous online fabric store that has all the latest and greatest fabric designers. You go online and browse all they have to offer. It can be a bit overwhelming, so don't hesitate to ask what I would recommend.

You select your favorite fabric that perfectly matches the decor of your event. You could even have your event planner do this part for you :)

Email me the link with the fabric of your choice, and I will do the ordering for you. We need a lot of fabric, a specific yardage, and I need it mailed to my house, so you can let me worry about the details. Easy!

We need one month to get the fabric ordered and do a little simple sewing, so plan ahead! These custom backdrops will start at $100. We'll even let you keep your fabric if you're a sewer and want to recover a chair or make some pillows to remind you of your big day! If you don't want it, no worries. We'll hang on to it (it may end up a pillow in my house!)
