Photobooth Fun – making people movers look simultaneously awkward and gangster since ages ago
One of the questions we often get asked is “How many people can you fit in this thing?” Its normally as a group of 4 people try to go into the booth.
Well, 4 is no problem. Neither is 6. And, I think the record is 19 people within the curtained confines of the booth.
There’s something like 17 people in here. If you know what to look for
Its all a matter of human Tetris, organising people by size and making sure everyone can see the camera. But it can be done.
Take the curtain off and anything is possible! You’ll notice above there’s a people mover in the background – so we can fit all sorts of things in the photo booth frame. Without the curtain it depends on how good the lighting is and how you arrange yourself to get the most people in focus. You can even get your own custom back-drops made or use the ones provided so conveniently by Mother Nature.
So there are all sorts of combinations and configurations that you might want to think about, or talk to us about when you book a booth. However you look at it – the only limit to the number of people in the booth is your ingenuity and imagination!
Keeping secrets can be hard, especially when they are about something really exciting! And keeping secrets is exactly what the Taranaki team have been doing BUT the time is almost here to reveal all!
We are super excited to be involved with one of the coolest events to hit the Naki …. ever…. can you guess???
Lets just say it involves a heap of AMAZING local business which of course includes Photo Booth Fun Taranaki’s favourite entertainment crew DMan entertainment.
All will be revealed very soon so keep an eye on our Facebook page and on DMan’s page www.facebook.com/dmanentertainment – you will not want to miss this!
Speaking of secrets, did you know one of the coolest surprises to keep secret for your event is one of our Booths! We often take bookings from brides, grooms, event planners, birthday boys and girls (the list goes on) that organise a Photo Booth Fun booth for their event but say “don’t tell anyone because this is going to be the best surprise ever” And it rally is! Nothing like having something to surprise your guests with to make you event even more special.
See keeping secrets might be hard but with us it is super FUN too!
The Bay of Plenty photo booth ends up in some fairly out of the way spots, and we’re often asked ‘how far do you go?’ Well that’s an excellent question!
With our Tauranga base we offer FREE delivery within 50kms of the Tauranga CBD, and that covers all of the local conference facilities and wedding venues, and includes Katikati to the North, Pyes Pa, Papamoa and Te Puke to the South.
But we go much further, in fact as long as you’ve got vehicle access and power we cover the whole of the Bay of Plenty region – including Rotorua, Kawerau, Whakatane and Opotiki.
If you’re thinking even further afield, then don’t worry we’ve our network of photo booth regions all over New Zealand – with booths in Auckland, Hamilton, New Plymouth, Napier, Wellington and Christchurch each region offers free delivery within 50kms of the CBD, and that’s a massive chunk of New Zealand covered!
Okay, so we are only in February, and Christmas was really not that long ago ….. but its never too early to start planning ahead to your 2015 school ball! School balls can take a huge amount of planning and preparation, so the sooner you can start, the better your night will be.

Couple of folks frightened as their booking is almost over
One of the best things about weddings is the speeches. There’s plenty of laughs and, often, a good number of tears and speeches can be one of the highlights of a special day. But in Wellington recently we’ve found that speeches have eaten a big chunk out of people’s Photobooth booking. While our operators always try to make sure that everyone gets a go sometimes its just not possible because speeches have eaten into half, if not more of the Photobooth booking. It means two things: firstly that some people might miss out and secondly that you’re not getting value for money with the booking.
But the good news is that you can have it all! Awesome speeches and awesome memories created by the Photobooth. While most people only have one wedding, unless they’re Elizabeth Taylor, we’ve been to more than our fair share and we know how things go during a wedding reception. Combine this with your knowledge of the folks doing speeches and we can work out if Uncle John is likely to blow out his allotted 5 minutes and therefore what’s the best time to start the booth booking. Or even if straight after speeches is the best place to have it.
Before you lock that booking in, or even afterwards if you’re having second thoughts about the timing, get in touch with us to talk through the logistics. Better to make sure its not you pulling the “are we going to miss out?” faces.
The BOP team are full swing into wedding season now, and recently we’ve been to some amazing venues, heres a selection of totally awesome, photo booth friendly wedding venues we’ve appeared at in the past few weeks…
Everybody loves a good wedding and here at Photo Booth Fun we really really love a good wedding! What’s not to love? a beautiful bride in an amazing gown, pretty flowers, guests who travel from near and far to party with you, tasty drinks and cake (never forget the cake)!
But what we really love about weddings (even more than the cake) is watching the smiles and cheeky glances of the booth goers! You just can’t beat listening to the uncontrollable laughter coming from our booths when that curtain closes and the first flash fires! We don’t always know what is going on behind that curtain but it sure sounds amazing… after all we all know that people do the funniest thing’s when they think no one’s watching!
Sold on getting one of our booths for your wedding yet? Well what if we told you that you (as the hirer) will get to keep the evidence forever on a USB – think of the fun you can have long after the booth is gone! Now I KNOW you are sold on the idea and we can’t wait to hear from you!
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.
