Grant Gustin Brings His Superhero Charm to Our Open Air Booth

Grant Gustin, who plays the character of Barry Allen AKA “The Flash”, attended the beautiful wedding of his sister in law, Weezy Thoma, along with his wife, LA Thoma, on June 15th, to wish her a lifetime of love and everlasting happiness. The wedding theme portrayed what can be rightly called as graceful grandeur.

Grant hinted at the wedding in his June 16 Instagram post,

“Family keeps growing. EDIT: NEW BROTHER IN LAW. Not preggo.”

If you haven’t had enough of the humor and cuteness, check out this post by his wife who also officially announced the wedding through Instagram.

“my Weezy got married to her Matty Poo! She wore my veil, and I wore the same dress she wore at my wedding. It was perfect ❤️ welcome to the crazy fam Matt!”

This goes to show just how caring his wife’s side of the family is. Even Grant has mentioned several times to the media how big, thrilling, and fun LA Thoma’s family is.

The wedding took place at the Life Care Alliance’s Carrie’s Café decorated in shades of pink, navy, mint green, and white. Elegant decorations and contrasting colors beautifully captured the essence of the occasion. Not only that, Grant had a very big family reunion and even met distant relatives. This justified for a very special photo booth to make lasting memories for everyone.

We captured the loving moments of a beautiful occasion in a fun-filled way, using our Open Air Booth.  The happy family enjoyed a fun time using our special booth. They were great with poses and shots!

We also felt heartfelt joy for capturing everlasting memories for the loving couple, Grant and his family.

If you’re wondering whether the flash is as adorable and fun in real life as he is on tv, then you’re undeniably correct! 100% awkward and adorable! Look for yourself!

Grant’s family took up our challenge for fitting the most people inside the booth very seriously.
Double the Flash, Double the fun.
And of course he opted for a DC Comics prop!

Our pick from the best celebrity photo booths!

There was a time when photo booths were thought to be dying out. With the rise of digital cameras and then smartphones, photo booths were reserved for ID card and passport photos. In the last few years, however, we’ve seen a massive rise in the popularity of photo booths at events. It seems that people missed the instant photo opportunity after all! Right now, photo booths are bang on trend, and even celebrities are jumping on the photo booth bandwagon for their events. Let’s explore some of the best star-studded photo booth pictures.

Khloe Kardashian

What party on a yacht would be complete without a celebrity photo booth? Khloe Kardashian threw a party to celebrate her boyfriend James Harden’s 26th birthday. The party was on board a yacht that left Marina del Rey in California. Khloe went for the classic black and white photo booth and it looks like she used props appropriate for the location too! Photo from Khloe’s Instagram account.

Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux

When celebrity Jennifer Aniston and her long-term partner Justin Theroux threw their surprise wedding, they didn’t allow guests to have their smartphones. I can’t imagine a room these days where there are 70 people without a phone in their hand! There were still many photo opportunities though as their guests were able to enjoy the event even more through the hired photo booth. Personally, I think this is a great idea! Not allowing smartphones stops people becoming distracted or antisocial on your special day. What’s more, it stops people sharing photos of your wedding on Instagram or Facebook before you’re ready to show them off! Unfortunately no photos have surface of the wedding but here are some from Aniston’s 50th Birthday celebration!

Harry Styles

Always on trend, Harry Style had a photo booth at his 21st birthday party and it looks like a great time was had by all! Kelly Osbourne posted a photo on her Instagram of a black and white photo booth print out. It looks as though Harry opted for a traditional strip-style photo booth for his bash. This seems to be a really popular choice with celebrities as well as the general public.

Ellen DeGeneres

To celebrate her 60th birthday, Ellen DeGeneres hosted a star-studded bash for her close family and friends and hired a photo booth to mark the occasion. There were many celebrity guests who made the most of the photo booth, many of whom were naturals and enjoyed being in the spotlight. Attendees included Kim Kardashian and her husband Kanye West, Chrissy Teigen, John Legend, Jennifer Aniston, and Meghan Trainor. Imagine being in a photo booth with all of these people!

Kylie Jenner

To celebrate her 21st birthday, Kylie Jenner hosted a huge party and booked in a photo booth. Like many celebrities we’ve mentioned, Kylie chose a traditional black and white photo booth and the photos look like they had an amazing time! Pretty much all of the Kardashians and Jenners attended the party. It looks like it was a really fun event!

6 Reasons Why a Photo Booth should be at YOUR Wedding.

Cherry Blossom Wedding at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden by David Lindner

If you’re struggling thinking of everything you need for your wedding party, hiring a photo booth can check many boxes off your list. Read on to find the 6 reasons why having a photo booth for your big day is a great idea!

1. Entertainment for guests of all ages

Once the “I Do’s” are shared, weddings tend to be long events for your guests so they’ll need things to do to keep them entertained in between the highlights. A photo booth is a great idea for a wedding with any number and age of guests. Young kids will love being silly in front of the camera and having fun with props, whilst the adults will love trying something a bit different! It’s also a great activity for guests when there’s downtime during the event.

2. Wedding Favors

It’s often tricky to decide on the best wedding favors for your guests. It’s hard to find something that is unique that everyone will appreciate. With a wedding photo booth, your guests can have fun and produce their own souvenir from the event!

3. Guest Book

Guest Book Scrap Book

In a similar way to wedding favors, a photo booth can be used as a unique way of creating a guest book. Guests can enter the booth and get 2 copies of their picture – one can be for them to keep and the other can be for them to stick in your guest book next to their message. Not only will you have a memory of who attended your wedding, but you’ll have a souvenir of exactly what they looked like when you got wed! A photo guest book will have you reminiscing about your wonderful wedding day for years to come and will be something to show your grandchildren one day!

4. Memorable

As we’ve already mentioned, a photo booth checks lots of boxes but the most important one is that it creates memories. After all, you want to be able to remember your wedding forever right? A photo booth creates heaps of fun memories. And, if ever the memories do start to fade, you’ve got the photos to look back on!

5. Instant Pictures

Let’s face it, it will be weeks if not months before your official wedding photos are ready! A photo booth gives you instant access to pictures right then and there! With your photo booth prints, you will have something to look at and reminisce with right on the spot!

6. Ice Breaker

Our final reason for hiring a photo booth at your wedding is that it’s a great ice breaker. This is a time in your life when everyone you love and care about is in the same place. When two families join like in a wedding, there are many guests from either side that have never met but who are equally important in your lives. A photo booth is a great way to get your guests to meet and get to know each other a little bit!

Once you’ve decided that you need a photo booth at your wedding, the hard part starts – which type of photo booth do you go for?!

The Open Air Photo Booth: a Fun Alternative to the Traditional Enclosed Photo Booth

What is the Open Air Photo Booth?

Here is an example of our Open Air Booth with out the backdrop.

This is a photo booth that is not contained within a frame or a curtain. There is a kiosk-style photo booth stand and guests can choose their props just like with any of our photo booths. We have many different backdrops available too, so you can really tailor the experience for your guests.  Our Open Air Photo Booth is great for any event and is a really popular choice!

Unleash your inner model with the Open Air Photo Booth! This booth has an interactive touch screen that is super easy to use. What’s more, the green screen option means that you can combine props and pretend to be whoever you want, wherever you want. Fancy being Elvis in Las Vegas? You can!

How can you get a copy of your images?

With the Open Air Photo Booth, you have numerous options of getting a copy of your photos. Not only can you go traditional with prints but you can also share via the internet! Within the print option, you can choose the color effect and quantity of prints for your photos. Digitally, you can send your photos via email, text, or you can upload to your favorite social media site.

Who might want to use it?

Open Air Booth, shown here with a Premium Backdrop, can fit almost any space!

Since this photo booth doesn’t take up a specific size of space, it’s ideal for locations where space is limited either in surface area or height. It still gives you the same fun as any other photo booth and can still fit large groups in its space.

This photo booth is a top choice for school proms and college parties. There’s something about students watching each other have fun taking pictures and bouncing new photo booth ideas off each other!

If you don’t fall into the school or college category, this is still a great photo booth for your party. Imagine seeing your grandmother have fun with all of the props in an open photo booth? You wouldn’t be able to enjoy that experience in an enclosed booth.

Why should you choose the Open Air Photo Booth above other types of photo booth?

The great thing about the Open Air Photo Booth is that you can see what’s going on! Your guests will be inspired by what others do, so it can really turn into a whole lot of fun. An open booth can be a great way to break the ice among groups of guests who might not know each other very well. Open air booths have a variety of backdrop choices too! You can really tailor your event however you choose.

So, what are you waiting for? See how much fun you will have in our Open Air Photo Booth!

DIY Photo Booth Vs Professional Photo Booth

A photo booth is a great idea for your wedding but they can be pretty expensive. In this post, we look at all the pros and cons of hiring a professional photo booth and compare them to a DIY photo booth. Which one will come out on top? Let’s take a look!

DIY Photo Booth

Firstly, let’s look at all of the reasons for and against having a DIY Photo Booth.

Pros:

DIY Book Photo Booth Background

  • A DIY Photo Booth is entirely customizable. You can make it exactly as you wish – background, props etc. – to fit your events theme!
  • You can reuse your photo booth at other events. If it’s a really good photo booth, you could hire it out to other people!
  • You can use cost effective materials to build the actual booth. Then you can save your money to buy the more expensive equipment.
  • You’re in control of exactly where and how you want it set up. Since you can customize it as you wish, you can make it fit ANYWHERE in the venue! So long as you have access to electrical power.

Cons:

Bad DIY green screen lighting

  • Picture Quality – Unless you know the proper light setting on your camera, a homemade photo booth won’t have as good a quality of prints as a professional booth
  • A DIY Photo Booth isn’t necessarily cheaper – once you add up all the props, backdrops, lighting, camera. prints and printers. It may end up turning out to be more expensive than hiring a professional!
  • It’s a hassle! – When you’re organizing an event like a wedding, you’ve probably got a lot on your plate already without the added stress of designing a photo booth.
  • Instant prints – unless you use a Polaroid camera or purchase an expensive photo printer, you and your guests won’t be able to have instant prints of their photo booth experience.

Now, let’s look at the pros and cons of hiring a professional photo booth

Pros:

  • Less Stress – Let someone else take care of everything! Your choice of backdrops, props, and style of photo booth will be chosen well in advance. When it comes to the day of your event, you won’t have to worry about anything and can concentrate on other things that you need to do
  • Better technology – Photo booths are more than just a camera, props and a backdrop. You can get all sorts of interactive, video-taking photo booths these days. The quality of the images will be excellent.
  • Improved lighting – Since a professional photo booth is designed to take really great pictures, the lighting will be just right!
  • Instant pictures and sharing – With a professional photo booth, you could have instant access to high-quality photos and videos. Many professional photo booths offer the opportunity of instant sharing as well on social media, by text or by email. DIY booths tend to lack this instantaneous sharing capability.

Cons:

  • A professional photo booth seems expensive, particularly the high-tech ones. However, it is still cheaper over all than a DIY booth of the same quality.

Conclusion

What’s more, you don’t have to worry about doing any sort of organization!
