Event photography requires a keen sense of observation. You need to know where the best interactions are happening and be prepared to capture the moment. The course of the event is shot primarily journalistic with some impromptu posing. During the evening of photographing the Austin Bridal Guide's Fall Book Release party, held out at Flint Rock Ranch, I saw something that just struck me as a "fun magnet". The photo booth. Being the geeky photographer I am, I had to ask owner Paige Marie Bull loads of questions!
The concept of the photo booth goes way back to the 1880's with varying degrees of success. However, this particular photo booth from Forever In Time Photo Booth, LLC, was a digital modern mobile metal curtain box filled with untold stories and spit out wonderfully brilliant bold colored photos. With several props to chose from, several guests would adorn themselves with hilariously oversized glasses, moustaches, masks, and other props, instantly bringing out their inner child. An outside monitor gave other guests in line, a peek into the silliness or love that transpired inside the booth. Laughter and squeals filled the room from inside the booth as well as from guest collecting their strips of 4 pictures. If you want to add something special to your event, add a photo booth. Your guest will have a blast.
