Because people do the funniest things when they think no one's watching...

Flexibility is Key!

At Photo Booth Fun we like to think that we are leaders in flexibility with our booths. A key to this is being able to transport our booths virtually anywhere, so long as we are within ten metres range of a power outlet and on level ground. If your event is about location just as much as it is about fun then we would like to take a step forward and extend our services to you!

We have, in our arsenal a fleet of highly portable, durably constructed and top quality Photo Booths; with plenty of experience in utilising our booths in locations that you might not initially think are possible. Over the last couple of years our booths have attended the Internationally recognised WOMAD festival in New Plymouth, The Devonport food and Wine Festival, Taste Martinborough and The Pacifica and Polyfest event in Auckland to mention but a handful.

On many occasions our booths have been required on the upper levels of office buildings and sometimes underground in wine cellars, on farms in the middle of nowhere or on school fields for gala evenings. We can pack our booth down to a compact footprint and wheel it on a trolley to help us gain access via your building lift or access ramp and although it takes a bit of extra effort we are often able to lug it up stairwells too (although some of our smaller operators may require help from a few strapping blokes if they’re feeling gentlemanly).

We also like to make sure nobody is left out of the fun, so we try to offer solutions to issues such as height (small children and little people) and mobility (people in wheel chairs), in these cases we can provide a stool or locate the booth near a platform or ramp if available. If this isn’t a viable option we can always allocate a portion of time to reducing the height of our booth and letting those who may have missed out get snapped a few times, ensuring that nobody has to sit on the sidelines.

We would love to talk to you if you’re planning any event that you may think could benefit from our added flexibility, so please don’t hesitate to contact us and find out if we can help you with your next shindig! Until next post, have a fun time out there :)

The Wedding Gift NZ & Giving something back

I don’t think many of us can even begin to imagine how earth shattering getting news that our lives will end sooner than we ever thought could ever be, it isn’t something that we like to think about…. But just for a moment imagine you have just been given a limited time to live…. I think at that point most of us would begin to write a list of things that we wanted to check off while we still could. For some people one of the most important things on that list could be to marry the one they love. Now imagine that getting married is on your bucket list but you simply don’t have the time, or the knowledge or possibly the funds to achieve that big day? Heart-breaking! Well there is a new organisation in town and it is set to make all the difference – a caring, selfless non-profit organisation to help those who are terminally ill to achieve their wedding dreams and Photo Booth Fun are right there with them.

The Wedding Gift NZ is a non-profit organisation providing/planning wedding ceremonies and celebrations for people with life threatening or terminal illnesses in Taranaki. (Although in time, the aim is you reach far more than just Taranaki)

Services are provided by local business without prejudice or agenda for the simple purpose of sharing love and providing lasting memories.

I’m sure at this point you wonderful Taranaki people are wondering what you can do to help with this amazing new venture – well the good news is they have their first fundraising event coming up soon. It will be an amazing day and all event information can be found here: Please take the time to have a look or contact Louise at if you have any questions or simply want to help.

Photo Booth Fun are very proud to be helping with such a wonderful event and we would love to see you there.

Tis the season to book your booth in…

Snap snap snap snap snap, snap snap snap snap…

Can you believe it is only 100 days until that jolly fella swaps his board shorts and surf board for a thick red coat and an enormous red sack crammed full of goodies!

And that means it’s time to book your work Xmas party – venue check, catering check, drinks double check… photo booth?!  Don’t miss out!  Last year we saw three big trends emerge:

  1. The number of booth bookings for Xmas party’s increased dramatically
  2. As did the number of props bookings
  3. And the number of Thursday and Friday night functions – we even appeared at a few Wednesday night Xmas parties and some mid week through the day bookings too

We were happily swamped with Xmas party bookings and did our very best to co-ordinate multiple events on the more popular days and nights too – pheewee!  So this year, we have a few special bonuses in store for all of those workplace heroines (and heroes) whose task it is to create that special Xmas social event!

Yes we are taking bookings now, and reserving your date is super easy – simply fill in your date and time on our Bookings and Enquiries form and Suze our admin superstar will contact you to finalise details.  PLUS!!  Any business Xmas party bookings between the 17th November and 24th December will receive special rates, with BONUS upgrades for any Xmas party bookings on a workday/night.


And if you’re in any doubt about the fun of a booth at a work event – we had a ball at the recent Warehouse Stationery Waikato/BOP regional ball last Saturday night – with a dress up theme and a booth everyone had a fun night to remember…  and the bonus props were off the hook!



So, if you enjoyed your booth booking last year, contact Suze NOW to reserve your date, and if you didn’t – but you think a booth might be a good idea… don’t spend too long thinking about it!

All about weddings!


Posted by , in Photo Booth

Most of us know that no wedding is complete without a photo booth!  We attend hundreds of weddings around the country each year, and it always warms our hearts to get great feedback about our booths and services.  Back in February we had the pleasure of joining Alexa and Dayle at their stunning wedding at Abbeville Estate, and what an honour for them to have their special day featured exclusively in issue ten of Hello May Magazine (on sale now).  Its a beautiful magazine with a special mention of Photo Booth Fun on page 46.

And on that note, if you are planning a wedding yourself, you should get yourself along to the Grand Wedding Show on Sunday 27th September.  Its being held at the SkyCity Convention Centre from 9am – 4pm.  Everything you need to help plan your day is under one roof – it really is an expo not to be missed.  And, of course, some of your friendly Photo Booth Fun crew will be there too, so come along and have some fun in one of our booths.  Hope to see you there!

The Team that Booths together stays together

IMG_0144One of the things that I do, as the Wellington manager, is look back over the pictures taken in our booth from time to time. One of the things I’ve noticed recently is a lot of photos of teams of people, costumed the same, having a great time. That’s because Wellington businesses are catching on to the idea that Photo Booths aren’t just entirely “a little bit of fun” – they can have a purpose too.

When it comes to organising a team-building day having a photo booth in the mix can be a great way for the teams involved to document what’s going on in their own way without the “intrusion” of a regular photographer who can make some people feel self-conscious. A booth can either be there for teams to use at their whim or it can be built right in to the challenges. For example, if there was a wearable art challenge as part of a team build day part of the challenge could involve a photo shoot in a booth. Or a team could be instructed to tell a simple story through the four photos that make up a strip from the photo booth. There are a tonne of different ways that a booth could be integrated into your day and then it could be kept on for an entirely different reason if there is an evening function, especially if partners are involved.

We’ve got plenty of experience in how to make a photo booth a fun part of any sort of event you are organising so don’t hesitate to get in touch and pick our brains for ideas!


Go the MIB’s!

Well it’s not long to go before the All Blacks take on the rugby world!

On a recent Air New Zealand flight they unveiled their new Men in Black flight safety video – featuring some of the 2015 All Blacks squad (of course) Richie and Dan, with a rapping Israel Dagg and Stan Walker – click on the image to check it out!

Reminded me of when our Auckland manager Jacqui and our PBF admin superstar Suze had the chance to film a Coke photo booth commercial with the AB’s last year – as you can imagine they had quite a bit of fun ;)

So roll on September and gooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo the All Blacks!!





Whats been happening in Auckland?


Posted by , in Photo Booth

Here we are, mid-way through August and hopefully nearing the end of winter (and what a cold winter it has been!!).  Its been a very busy few months for the Auckland crew – mostly with mid-winter Christmas parties and school balls (mixed in with a few weddings and birthday parties!).

Back at the end of July we also had the pleasure in being part of a very special family day for a fabulous charity called Upside Downs.  It was held at Jump in Albany for young people with Down Syndrome, and their families.  Everyone had a blast on the trampolines and also relished the chance to get some great family photos in our booth.  A great day was had by all and it was so nice that we were invited to be part of it.

And next month will see us back at the Grand Wedding Expo at the Sky City Convention Centre.  We will be in our usual stand at this expo – so mark 27th September in your diaries and we look forward to seeing you there!

And last but by no means least, we thought we would share with you our most favourite venue from recent weeks – the aviation hall at Motat.  How cool does our booth look amongst all of these old planes … ?  Very cool we think!!

Backdrop love – making it your own

We love the fact that our photo booths have a curtain that you can hide behind and get all crazy… but the fun doesn’t have to stop there!

For the more adventurous posers out there the curtain can be flung back to reveal all – posing with an audience can be just as fun! While a blank wall can be nice, a bit of DIY can take you booth experience up a notch – if you can fancy up the wall behind you or even find a fun and interesting wall you can give your guests the option to stay behind the curtain or have photos with a unique back drop or both!  – You can even add something to the existing curtain to make it your own – like Sam did for his Indian themed 50th, goodbye black curtain and hello blue sari.

On one of our all time faves…. Rosie sure knows how to make a stunning backdrop



This idea really got us thinking so off we went to search for some fun and different ideas that could inspire a curtain alternative …. remember you can keep the curtain on while still having a fabulous background on standby … we love what we found….have a look at these beauties and let your imagination go, we would love to see what you come up with!

See you at the Expo


There is no substitute for trying something out in person and talking to someone live to help you make your decisions and wedding expos are a great way to do that. Luckily for Wellingtonians we will be in attendance at the Capital City Wedding Expo on Sunday 23 August.

We’ll have one of our awesome booths there, a box of props to play with and plenty of samples to take a look at on the day. Greg, our Regional Manager, will be there to field all questions and he’ll also have the diary there to check whether we can help you out on your special day. Greg has lots of cool ideas about things you can do with your booth as well so you can really get the most bang for your buck out of the booth. Speaking of bang for your buck we often run a special deal for people who visit us on the day as well so come along and sign up to be part of that.

We’ve also had people come, take a photo in the booth and use that strip to announce their engagement too so there’s added incentive to come along and check us out. See you there!


Great marketing and exposure!

Hi there,

Here at Photo Booth Fun we think our product is an excellent way for businesses and charities to gain exposure and to get themselves talked about in a positive light. Many corporate and charitable organisations greatly benefit from the inclusion of one of our booths and operators at any function or event that they may be involved with.

With our mandate to create lasting memories and our excellent designers ability to add your branding and relevant information to one of our custom photo strips, we are able to increase the chances of your organisation being talked about when people display or show off their unique photo strips as they reminisce about that fantastic time they had at your company’s event.

Here are a few examples to demonstrate what we are talking about.

We would love to have the opportunity to collaborate with your company or charitable organisation and help you to potentially gain valuable exposure and make your mark  on guests or clients in a meaningful and fun way! We are confident we can excel in contributing to making any event a resounding success!
