Happy New Year! We hope you all had an amazing festive season and an unforgettable New Year!
The Taranaki Photo Booth Fun team are so excited about what 2014 means for us! When we look through our calendar we see many weddings at some very cool venues from here to Wanganui (yes we cover Wanganui too)!! We also see some great functions and events that look like they are going to be awesome! The good news is we love what we do and would work every day if we could so yes there are still dates available and we would love to hear from you! We’re sure that all 2014 events are going to rock but they will rock just that little bit more with Photo Booth Fun there – we know this because we are always receiving beautiful feedback!
“This booth is soooo much fun”
“This is so cool – all events should have them”
“I love that we have a booth in New Plymouth now”
“Our guests are loving this – We just became weddings of the year right here”
“Other than my wedding dress this is my favourite thing about my wedding”
And our all-time favourites “ WOW these photos are such awesome quality! I look so good in these photos” and “I can’t get over these photos are you sure there is not a photographer in that booth”!
We can’t get enough of the Photo Booth love!
If you haven’t already booked us now is the time – go on give us a call! You will LOVE it!
And while you are making that call check out Jaylene the stunning bride at our very first 2014 event! Congratulations Mr & Mrs Baker!
Happy New Year everyone – Yep, the year has flown by and we’ve had a ball (and attended a quite a few as well!). Congratulations to our first South Island happy couples for 2014, Lee and Natalie, and James and Julia. Both couples wed on the 4th Jan in scenic South Canterbury and we were quite happy to kick of 2014 in such beaut locations :)
The Christchurch team had a fabulous time with the photo booth over the Christmas period – We had balls, weddings, company Xmas dos, festive carol evenings and we were even lucky enough to bring our special brand of fun along to the Child Cancer Foundation’s 2013 Christmas party – And who did we have trying out props and striking poses with the best of them but my favourite Crusader and All Black, Kieran Read – Of course, lots of people wanted photos with him! Now as we all know, having a turn or two in the booth is not exactly a hard task, but what a good sport (excuse the pun)! Although, this champ didn’t come close to beating some of our bride’s records for longest non-stop stint in the booth!
I’m looking forward to what 2014 has to offer – We’re full swing into wedding season now so bring it on!
If you scroll back through this blog enough you’ll probably find other posts similar to this from past Wellington Managers – but here’s my version.
I get to go to a few weddings in my life. I’ve had one batch of friends hitched and the next, slightly younger wave is starting the process now but as they are my friends the weddings are all sorta the same. We are a group of people with similar backgrounds and similar interests and tastes. But since embarking on my first wedding season with Photobooth Fun I’ve seen a lot more! I’ve been to big cook Island weddings with dancing and singing, rocker weddings with tattoos, piercings and partial nudity and quite a few in between. Its a real chance to see how different people celebrate and to be part of those celebrations.
Thanks folks – for inviting us in and letting us make your special day a little more special.
And roll on the rest of the wedding season – I can’t wait to see what I’ll find
Well, what a year it has been!!! 2013 has been an incredible year for us …. our massively busy bookings calender has seen us grow both in new staff and in brand new booths! We have been at some fantastic events and loved every minute of them!
As the curtains begin to close on 2013, we would like to take this opportunity to thank our superstar operators – Adam, Alex, Carla, Sai, Sarah & Vivian – you guys absolutely rock and we couldn’t ask for a better team.
And of course we want to thank YOU! The people that have used us over the past year and shared your special day / event with us. We have loved working with you all and hope to see you again in 2014 – its going to be another AWESOME year!
On behalf of the Auckland crew, we wish you all a safe, happy and festive Christmas. We look forward to 2014 and hope to be coming to a party with you again soon.
In the build up to Christmas, there’s nothing like a good party to get everyone in the festive mood. This month we were proud to support The Radio Network’s Special Children’s Christmas Party here in Christchurch – A very special event which provides an unforgettable experience for disabled and disadvantaged children in our community.
And what a day it was, there were so many fun things to see and do and the photobooth ran non-stop – All that laughter coming from behind the curtain was contagious and it was great to see smiles on the faces of those patiently queuing for a turn.
It was a real privilege to be a part of this fantastic day, I met so many lovely families and had a ball watching all the fun.
We have lots more Christmas parties coming up this month and I look very forward to seeing some of that Christmas cheer snapped in the photo booth.
This time of year brings all sorts of folk into the Photobooth – its Christmas after all. One of the coolest things we get to do is help out charities and combine this with Christmas and you’ve got good vibes all round. Already this Christmas we’ve had the real privilege of having a Photobooth at the Child Cancer Foundation Christmas Party in Wellington. They are a great charity that don’t quite get the funds that some of the other charities do but they do fantastic work supporting the whole family of kids who have or have had cancer.
And at a party like this a Photobooth strip is a little more important. Its often a record of a family together in tough times, or having survived tough times. The number of times we heard kids being told – “This is a family photo for Mummy” brought it home. These are families for whom memories are really very important.
What was also amazing to hear was how many families still had their strip from last year’s party and were creating a little collection of memories.
We wish all those folk plenty of happy memories to come and a big thanks for having us along as part of the celebrations.

We all know Photo Booth Fun have the best photo booths out but did you know we also have the best Booth Operators ever?
Our operators operate the booth with style! Turns out we all love our job and love nothing more than hanging out with you and the booth at your events. Dedicated to making sure your event is fun, entertaining and an occasion that people will talk about for months! Check Ngaere from the Taranaki team out!
She has to be the perfect example of how far we will go for you! We are told Ngaere was up colouring her hair and painting her face at 5am for the Mad Music themed Hawera A&P Show – I think you will agree she really did make an awesome rock star!
We get to meet so many awesome people doing what we do – thank-you to all of you who have made us feel so at home at your events. And to those of you we have yet to meet we can’t wait to be a part of your next event – so what are you waiting for? Give us a call today :)
Photo Booth Fun = great booths, great fun and GREAT people!
With the festive season just around the corner, its becoming a very busy time for us here at Photo Booth Fun! Not only are we busy with birthdays, weddings and Christmas parties, we have also been involved with some amazing (and hugely worthwhile) charities.
Last month we were part of the Ronald McDonald House 19th birthday celebrations. A wonderful night hosted by TVNZ, which saw children and their families enjoy a delicious meal and a great night of entertainment. The team at Ronald McDonald House do such an amazing job and really do make a difference to all those families going through very tough times.
At the start of November we were very proud to be part of a Family Fun day in the Park with Bellyful (a group of amazing volunteers who provides meals for families with newborn babies, and for families who are struggling with illness). The weather was kind to us, which meant there was a fantastic turnout and it was a very successful day.
Here’s some of the feedback we have had from these events:
“Thank you so much for all of your help and for being a part of the event – you guys were a huge hit!” Kylie (Fundraising Coordinator – Bellyful East Auckland)
“It is wonderful having you come into the house. The families and staff absolutely love it” Karin (Operations Manager – Ronald McDonald House)
Over the next month, we will be doing more work with the Ronald McDonald House, along with Make-A-Wish and CanTeen – and we cant wait! We will be sure to let you know how it all goes.
Until next time, enjoy the sunshine and keep on smiling!
We are always so proud of our staff here at Photobooth Fun Waikato/Bay of Plenty as they’re the “faces” of our business. They’ve been to many a venue and helped hundreds of people take thousands of great photos.
Our summer calendar is filling fast so we’re taking on more operators to continue providing our great service.
How do we interview our applicants? Why we throw them photo booth of course! As an operator it’s not unusual to be requested for a photo opportunity.
We’ve still got some free dates for your last minute Christmas bookings so don’t think it’s too late to have us at your party. Keep a lookout for our new staff…they’re coming to an event near you.
A veteran client pointed this out the other night – every third frame in a 4 frame strip with a couple has them kissing. At Photobooth Fun we thought we’d bring a bit of rigorous science to bear and so we checked some of our recent gigs and she was right!
Whether its a family kiss, a romantic kiss or a friendly one it takes until the third frame for people to get up the courage to do what they’ve secretly been wanting to do from the moment they stepped in the booth – plant a kiss on someone!
Rubbish you say!
Well the proof’s in the pudding (Christmas pudding at this time of the year). Why don’t you call us up, hire a booth and put the science to the test.
