WEDDING SEASON is in full swing, and once again Hawkes Bay is living up to the label of the Wedding Capital of New Zealand (OK it’s self appointed but if you’ve been here you’d know we’re right!), this month the Hawkes Bay Photo Booth Fun team had the honour of attending Weddings not only in wineries and events centres here in Napier, Hastings and Havelock North but also in Wairoa, Gisborne,
On the road north
and even as far north as Tokomaru Bay
What an amazing country we live in
Through to Taupo
anyone for a trip over the lake?
Down to Palmerston North
Palmerston North Wind Farm always a great sight on the way passed
And last weekend even in Takapau at the beautiful Oruawharo Homestead
Towards the end of the night inside chapel at Oruawharo Homestead
And I have to say just about every point in between.
Remember that the Hawkes Bay team are part of a nationwide group of fun and zany photo booth professionals. So no matter where you are in New Zealand, as long as there is power supply and trolley access you can book a booth for your event and you know we can be there!
Happy New Year everyone! We hope you all had a wonderful and festive Christmas and a safe and happy New Year. Its hard to believe we are mid-way through January already.
December was a great month for the Auckland team ….. our busiest month of the year! We attended a huge amount of Christmas parties, weddings and corporate events – with our booths being in constant use.
We had two highlights for the month of December. The first highlight was taking 2 booths into the VIP rooms at the Katy Perry concert – wow! For any of you who were lucky enough to hold tickets into one of these rooms, you will know what an amazing experience it was (a simply amazing way to kick-start an even better concert!).
The 2nd highlight of the month of December was being a part of a very special Christmas party (and one that we are lucky enough to do every year) – the Ronald McDonald House family Christmas party. It was such a pleasure to bring smiles to young peoples faces as they approached a Christmas away from home. The staff and volunteers do a truly amazing job at putting on such a wondering and memorable night, and we were so honoured to be involved.
2014 was a fabulous year for us, and one we will reflect on for a long time yet.
We are very excited about what 2015 has in-store for us, and look forward to many more amazing events.
We have so many awesome events coming up in the Waikato this year – the Cricket World Cup, Balloons over Waikato, National Agricultural Field Days, the FIFA under 20 World Cup and the Great Race just to name a few! And this month from Monday 12th – Saturday 17th we’re hosting the Activepost Waka Ama Sprint Nationals at Lake Karapiro culminating with the Hinano Island Night After Party where the Waikato Photo Booth Fun team will be in attendance to capture all of the fun!
The Waka Ama Sprint Nationals are free to watch and with this weather it makes for a fun and exciting day for the whole family, you can purchase a weekly car pass and tickets to the after party at www.wakaama.co.nz/shop. And if you do attend the island night make sure you come and visit us and get your photo taken.
As the Wellington team prepares for our first Wedding Expo of the year, the North City Wedding Expo, its a good time to quickly talk about Expos.
Just recently I’ve started taking the booth to the weddings of folk who I’ve met at the various Wedding Expos that we attend in the Wellington region and its always really nice to finish something that may have begun two years ago! The thing with so many weddings is that details are often sorted out well in advance and, having been in the job for 18 months now, I haven’t had this opportunity often.
Expos can seem like a bit of a daunting prospect, or unnecessary as you think you’ve got it all “locked down” but it doesn’t hurt to go to a couple before the big day. Mainly because companies, like Photobooth Fun, do deals for these Expos and there’s always the chance of picking up more bang for your wedding buck – and there’s nothing wrong about that.
And its always a great chance to road test some of your products. We love having people in our booths at expos because its easy to see how fast and fun the process is, as well as the quality.
So a big congrats to all the brides and grooms who we met at an expo and ended up joining on their big day. Here’s hoping I meet some more later on this month!
2014 Where did you go? Time sure flies when you are having fun!
Our Taranaki team have had an AMAZING year! Sneaking into the photo booth at MANY events while hanging out with some very cool people!
From Brides to Mud Runners, Babies to 85 year olds and Charity events to major functions with everything in between! January to December we just haven’t stopped and neither have the laughs, smiles and crazy poses! There are days we ask ourselves “how can this be work”? Seriously the booth is too much fun to be work!
Thanks Taranaki – you awesome people you!
Bring on 2015! Give us a call to get one of our super fun booths along to your next event! We can’t wait!
The evidence…Taranaki Managers Rebecca and Jordan boothing it up! You may even find Tess our star operator in one of the snaps too…

Xmas is only a few sleeps away, and by now, millions of xmas family photo’s have been posted, emailed and downloaded all over the world.
Our photo booths operate in booth mode (with a curtain back drop) or kiosk mode (your own personalised back drop – without a curtain) and through the year we’ve captured some amazing family photo’s. But there is a fine line between super cool and, well just plain awkward. We’ve scoured the web to find a selection of both – super cool or super awkward? You decide!
Merry xmas from Corey, Carmen and the Waikato Photo Booth Fun team!
We are always very keen to try new things here at Photo Booth Fun, and were able to do just that at a recent event with Absolut. They were holding a Project Reveal party over three days at the Longroom in Ponsonby, and wanting a fun and innovative way to promote their new product – and what a better way then a photo booth!
With an Andy Warhol theme, we were able to make some changes to our usual photo strips, and look at the results below ….
Check out more great photos of this event at www.facebook.com/absolutnewzealand
If you have any product launches or events coming up where you want something a little bit different, please let us know what you have in mind …. you just never know what we might be able to do!
On behalf of the entire Auckland crew, we wish you all a safe and merry festive season, and look forward to seeing you all again in 2015!
2014 was a fab year for the South Island team. We boothed it up from Nelson to Queenstown and many places in between. We did weddings, corporate functions, birthdays (ranging in age from 10 to 60!), Christmas parties, school balls, charity events and more.
We saw more laughter than a Monty Python marathon, more poses than a selfie-fest and we still tie with Hawkes Bay for the record for most people in the booth!
We’ve had such a great 2014 in the South Island – Can’t wait to see what fun lies ahead in 2015!
Its party season now and although you’ve probably got the theme picked out for 2014 – here’s a few themes that have worked out really well in Wellington from a Photo Boothing perspective. Maybe try them out in the New Year (when you book us again – no pressure!)
Shaken not stirred
Always a fun excuse to just dress glam and easy to accessorise with. Most guys own a black suit and most gals have a cocktail dress of some sort and there’s always plenty to be found at costume hire companies. Its also really easy to add things to the props box for those folk who haven’t quite read the dress code or who feel a bit under-dressed when they show up
Nothing says “party” like a Mexican
You can go as fabulous as the Day of the Dead make-up above, a sombrero and a moustache or even just join your eyebrows together like Frida Kahlo. But Mexican is a great theme that can extend all the way through to food and drinks – especially the drinks!
Even mortal enemies become friends at a Disney party
This one’s a little bit out there. But if you want a party with lots of character possibilities and plenty of nostalgic songs to sing-along to why not awaken the inner child in you with something like a Disney party!
Just remember that if you are going the costume party route make sure you check in with your local costume shops to see what sort of stock they have. Its always a bit stink if you get in there and nab the best one and everyone else has to scrounge around!
