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

Image Quality Matters


Welcome to the end of June folks!

It has been a month of chilly weather here in the Bay of Plenty, in fact all over the country it has been freezing! I hope you’ve all kept safe, dry and warm over the last month, it’s sad to say but I think it’s only going to get colder!

With the cold weather there comes comfort in warming up with friends and family and reminiscing over fond memories. Memories are great, but can fade, so sometimes having a picture to renew those old feelings can be a valuable addition to any story or evening around the fireplace. Unfortunately some photos don’t stand the test of time, however some do. Like the high quality colour, or black and white prints from our Photo Booths.

We know that our equipment is top notch, and delivers exceptional results, consistently, that stand the test of time. Which given that you’re paying your hard earned money for our services, transforms the experience from a mere novelty, to a worthwhile investment in memories that can be drawn upon time and time again to provide cheer when the weather or other factors conspire to make the outlook gloomy.

We also have some pretty cool guys and girls working for us who don’t mind you and your guests cutting loose and having a great time. It’s of huge importance to us that every part of the Photo Booth Fun experience lives up to its name!

Just check out these images from our most recent event here in the Bay of Plenty to gain an insight into the sort of emotion that we can help you to take home in your pocket or bag, or custom guestbook, or frame, or custom memory stick, or custom envelope, or even in a private online gallery. We like to give you more than a couple of options!

Think Photo Booth Fun for your childs next birthday party!


Got a kids birthday party coming up?  Need some inspiration  ….. ? 

Planning a childs birthday party can be hard work!!!  Alot of preparation and time goes into planning the food alone, let alone thinking about what games etc are needed to keep the young ones entertained.

Why not consider hiring a photo booth for your next party?  They are fast becoming more popular at kids parties, and we get so much fabulous feedback from parents about what a great addition it was to the big day.  It is such a perfect way to get some great photos of your kids, as well as some family photos to be treasured for a long time afterwards!  And who needs goodie bags when you can send people home with some super cool photo strips to hang on their fridge.

And don’t forget our fabulous design team can take care of creating a great photo strip for you too – to make sure it matches the theme of your party (just ask us about this at time of booking).

Contact us today – your kids will love you for it!

Great causes

The Wellington Photobooth has been out and about for some great causes in May.

First we ventured out onto the street to help out collectors for the Mary Potter Hospice appeal. This was the first time in recent memory we’ve had a booth actually out on the street – parked up just outside Unity Books on Willis St. It was great to see all the folk walk past and stop and look at the people inside the booth and even if everyone didn’t venture inside it was a great way to grab a bit of attention on a chilly Wellington Friday. A big thanks to WCC and Unity Books for allowing it to happen.

The next day we headed out to one of the Pink Ribbon Breakfasts being held around the country to raise funds to fight breast cancer. Greg, our Wellington Manager bravely ventured into a breakfast jam-packed with Porirua ladies. Their initial disappointment that he wasn’t a stripper was replaced pretty quickly with laughter, giggles and a queue for the booth that stretched around the room.

A big thanks to all the lovely folk who used the booth and made generous donations and to the folks who got us involved in fun for great causes!


We love to have you back!


There is something so exciting about repeat bookings! We love that we get to attend your events each year – it is always so nice to see you again!

Obviously repeat weddings wouldn’t be ideal, after all you aim to do those just the one time BUT school balls and corporate events are a different story! It really is the greatest compliment to ask us back for another of your events and it sure makes us feel all loved! A couple of weeks ago the Taranaki Team headed back to do another SHGC ball and like always it was an awesome evening! It seems people can just never have enough of Photo Booth Fun!

Thank-you for remembering us and our booth each time you plan your events, we can’t wait for the repeat Christmas bookings! If you haven’t had one of our booths before … well why not? Just kidding!! We will let you off this time but we would love to be involved with your next event – so give us a call and we can tell you all about what we do  – 0800 FOTO BOOTH

Bay of Plenty-School Balls and Wedding Shows


Hi everybody,

Over here in the Bay of Plenty we have had a great month attending the local school balls and getting amongst the excitement, for many of the students it was their first school ball. Luckily our booth was there to help capture the priceless memories of the night for them to enjoy in years to come! We attended the Mount College Ball, followed by the Tauranga Girls College Ball and rounded off by the Otumoetai College Ball. It’s not over yet either! We still have a few more school balls coming up in the two months and we are always really excited to help make our mark on a very special evening for many!   

Judging by the hordes of photos our booths have snapped from the first ball up to now (averaging 1150 per event!) and by the size of the never ending and continually recycling queue’s, we would say the booths are a feature not to be overlooked. It’s almost common place to see one of our booths at such events, and we can tell you that it just doesn’t get old seeing people emerge with wide grins and having a laugh when they examine the prints of their (frequently contorted) faces!

Additionally this month we were fortunate to have a stand at the Tauranga Wedding Show, held at ASB Baypark Arena. It was a great day and Taylor our regional manager was there talking to the lovely faces who came forward and courageously stepped into our booth for some first hand experience, it’s funny how once you’ve had a turn, you want to have another. We also asked people to submit their email into our iPad, we did this because we had been planning a special show offer that we have now sent out to the recipients, we think it’s a good one!

Part of our business philosophy is making your party or special event come alive and go down in history (at least with your friends and guests) as a great time worth every cent. We pride ourselves on the standard of customer service we provide, along with the quality we maintain throughout the process, from the use of high quality cameras to outstanding printers that make your photos look like they’re straight from the studio. Why just create memories that’ll last when you could also create exceptional material that lasts too!

At Photo Booth Fun we like to go the extra mile to help get things just right for your event, so if you’ve got any queries or questions regarding the potential for us to transform your personal or corporate event into a fondly remembered occasion where everybody can get involved, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us in the Bay of Plenty region at bayofplenty@photoboothfun.co.nz we will be happy to answer any questions you may or talk about options for your potential future booking.

Finally we are proud to announce our category sponsorship for our first year of the New Zealand Wedding Industry Awards, we are going to be there, with our booth, getting amongst the festivities and making sure everybody has a great night!

Until next time, have a great month ahead,

Wonderful Weddings


Hawkes Bay is fast becoming known as the Wedding Capital of New Zealand because of our amazing weather and wineries and second to none service industry. And the Hawkes Bay Team get to have our photo booths at some amazing weddings in Napier, Hastings, Havelock North and beyond!

But, I get the bonus of being the Photo Booth Fun’s in-house graphic designer and therefore have the privilege of putting together the custom strip designs for photobooth functions right across the country. As the “wedding season” is basically over for another year I thought I’d share some of my favourite designs from the season. Enjoy and be inspired…

As you can see, a custom strip design really does add to the overall effect of the day and your memories of it. And there’s so many options! So hit me up for a design that matches what you’ve put so much effort into planning! That applies not just to weddings but any function we do, a custom strip design will set it apart and help create wonderful memories of your special event!

Oh we also do custom album designs which are laser etched into the album cover, custom envelope designs to keep things matching with your strip design and other stationary – these make great favours, and even custom backdrops for when the booth is in kiosk mode.

The Lovely Lord Ladies Pink Ribbon Breakfast


Many of you will know someone who has been affected by cancer but did you know that 8 women a day are diagnosed with breast cancer in New Zealand?  May is the month of the Pink Ribbon Breakfast fundraisers, and in 2014 over 2000 kiwis hosted a  breakfast and collectively raised over a million dollars for breast cancer research.  This year it aims to be bigger and better again!

Photo Booth Fun Auckland had the pleasure of donating a photo booth to one of these events yesterday – and wow what a morning it was!!  It is the 2nd year that the Lovely Lord Ladies have hosted a breakfast, and this year they really out-did themselves!  Over 60 ladies turned up to enjoy the morning, with alot of wonderful give-aways, raffles, games and of course a very scummy breakfast!  It was so heartwarming to be involved in this event and to see everyone digging deep for such a good cause.  It was also so wonderful to see businesses within the wider community donating goods and services which helped to make the morning the huge success that it was.

So far they have raised $2850 – and that figure is still growing!  What an AMAZING result from one breakfast – you ladies rock!  You can check out more about the Lovely Lord Ladies at http://pinkribbonbreakfast.co.nz/page/thelovelylordladies – and of course you can also donate on this page too.

Keep up the wonderful work New Zealand – truly amazing stuff!

Christchurch Bridal Show


This month saw us at the Christchurch Bridal Show at the Addington Events Centre – What a fabulous day! We loved meeting all the couples and bridal parties and showing them the magic of the photo booth – It really is a fantastic way to bring a little extra to your wedding and create lasting memories for you and your guests. And most importantly.. it’s FUN!

We had non stop laughs throughout the day coming from inside the booth and continuing on once the prints were viewed outside.
