Some things to do with a Photobooth

IMG_0330We are in the middle of a busy wedding season in Wellington and coming hot off the heels of Christmas party season. These events are places where you are most likely to find a photo booth but there are all sorts of other occasions that we show up to that might give you some ideas for your next event.

Birthday parties are always a fun celebration to add a photobooth to and we are also able to lower our booths to kid height just for kid’s parties. How about a photobooth at your anniversary? If they’re good enough for weddings why not the anniversary of one? We also love having booths at openings – the photo above was taken at a pet store opening and its a great way to send people away with a reminder that your store has opened up in their area.

How about get a booth along for your conference, maybe at the dinner to loosen everyone up before the dance floor gets into swing. Or maybe for a promotional activity? Sure we’ve provided booths for the ABs and Coca Cola (up in Auckland anyway) but that doesn’t mean we can’t come up with something to fit your promotional budget.

And we’re always open to hearing about using our photobooths at your fundraisers – school fairs, charity dinners, whatever. If we are able to help out we’d love to. You can use the booth to collect gold coin donations or just to provide a fun record of your fundraiser. The possibilities for booth use are endless – get in touch with us to talk about it!

Our Classic Kiwi Summer

It sure has been hot lately, the perfect kiwi summer…and what do us kiwi’s do every summer – we head to the beach!

We have found the perfect way to spend our summer and we think you will agree it ticks all the boxes! Imagine a place where you can relax and enjoy delicious food and live music while wondering through stalls of some incredibly talented people selling beautiful products all on the water’s edge – sounds unreal doesn’t it?? Turns out this amazing place exists right here in New Plymouth. We have been spending our kiwi summer at the beach with our wonderful photo booth thanks to The Seaside Market – it really is a fantastic event with the best summer vibes. You should totally check it out here:  The Seaside Market

See our photo booths really can be set up just about anywhere, even the beach is no problem at all. We love taking our booths to different and exciting locations so if you have an idea for a venue no matter how crazy then let us know and I’m sure we can figure out a way to get Photo Booth Fun there for some good times!

Happy new year photo-boothers!!  It really is crazy to think the festive season is behind us and 2016 is in full swing!!!

With a new year, always comes new years resolutions.  Did you make one this year?  Its not something we normally do, but thought why not, lets give it a go!  So, as we embark on 2016 we have made a pact to eat healthier, be more active and laugh more!  Pretty simple right?!?!  Lets see in a few months time!! :)

And of course we couldn’t have a personal resolution and not a professional one – and its actually a very simple one …. we just want to make more people smile!  In fact, its pretty hard NOT to smile inside our booths, but just to help increase the levels of smiles we get, we are now including a box of props with every one of our packages.  Thats right – no matter what package you book with us, you will now get a box of props included.  Props are the perfect way to make you laugh and smile, and they always go down a treat at any event.

2016 is shaping up to be an awesome year in so many ways – and we hope its going to be a fab one for you too!

North City Wedding Expo here we come!

IMG_0275The North City Wedding Expo is almost upon us Wellingtonians!

And its a great way to find everything you need for a wedding all under one roof – especially your booth! We’ve said it before but it bears repeating – you try out lots of other things that go into your wedding (even your future spouse!) so you really should get your props on and get into one of our booths. Its a great way to get in some wedding day kiss practice and we know this because trying to find a photo from last year’s expo that didn’t involve a lip-locked couple was no easy task!

If you haven’rt already sent out invites or other details about your wedding hold onto those strips you get from the booth because with a little scanning and some creativity you could have some really fun images!

We’ve talked about how much we enjoy these expos before and its true – they really are a great way to meet brides, grooms and families and start the process of creating memories. So come along to the Te Raupararaha Arena in Porirua on 24 January and come give our fantastic booth a trial run!

2016 – Bring it on Canterbury!

Wow, where did the last year go? While we welcome the new year, we’ve had some pretty good memories created throughout 2015: Weddings, parties, balls, fundraisers and more – And thanks to our instant photo strips, the memories don’t fade!

In 2015 we traveled from Chch to Ashburton, Timaru, Queenstown, Dunedin, Blenheim, Nelson and a few places in between. Yep, we cover the whole South Island and we love to travel so wherever you are, we can get you a photobooth!


See you in 2016!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

The team at Photo Booth Fun would like to wish you all the very best for the holiday season! Though I’m writing this from Sunny Hawkes Bay I know all our staff from right around the country join with me in Merry Christmas

We’ve been involved in some awesome events this year in Hawkes Bay, from Weddings to 21st Parties, from 50th, 60th and 70th birthdays to the Special Children’s Extravaganza, from School Balls to  work conferences and functions and an amazing night at Christmas at the Park with Dave Dobbyn and 27000 guests I can honestly say it’s been a fantastic year for Napier, Hastings, Havelock North and the whole Hawkes Bay region!

And 2016 is looking to be even better! I look forward to our team coming to your special event and adding some extra photobooth fun!

Give us a call now!

A special thanks to some special kids

Earlier this month the Waikato PBF team had the chance to spread some Xmas cheer with a great bunch of kids and their families at the Special Children’s Christmas Parties Waikato, Bay of Plenty, Rotorua.  Check out the Photo Booth Fun 2015 – Hamilton gallery here.

Heaps of local businesses supported the day – either with their services like us, or by contributing gifts to the santas present cave and there were heaps of volunteers helping out on the day too.

If you are interested in taking part next year visit their website  – we’ll be back ;)


Lovin’ the silly season!


Posted by , in Photo Booth

So, here we are – midway through December, and right in the thick of the silly season!   For us here at Photo Booth Fun, December is manic and by far our busiest month of the year!  We have back to back bookings, and our feet sometimes fee like they don’t touch the ground!

But the best thing about December is all the awesome Christmas parties that go with it!  Everyone is winding down at work and waiting with great anticipation for their annual knees up!  It really is wonderful watching everyone relax and unwind after a year of hard work.

Not only do we attend corporate Christmas parties, but also some pretty cool ones for children.  This month in Auckland we had the pleasure of attending both the Auckland Down Syndrome Association Christmas Party, and the CYFS Childrens Christmas party – both of which were just amazing!  Seeing the pure delight on these childrens faces as Santa entered the room and delivered gifts for them all – really no words could explain how special this felt.  The awesome and very talented Che Fu came along and performed at one of these parties – and of course we couldn’t resist dragging him into the booth for a quick snap :)

Thank you so much to everyone who we have been involved with this year, and we wish each and everyone one of you a magical and fun filled festive season.  Stay safe and we look forward to working with you all again next year.

Can you say CHRISTMAS!!!

I decided to pop into town yesterday for a quick 5 minute job…. An hour later I was home…. Can anyone say CHRISTMAS??

Yes the silly season has hit town with shoppers getting all crazy, kids screaming for Santa photos and that oh so catchy Christmas music playing in the shops and did I mention it is only 21 sleeps until the big day!!! And as always we have a lot of booth gigs to pack into those 21 days – and the truth is we are pretty excited about the whole thing!

We can’t make any promises but we might still be able to fit your booking in with a bit of flexibility, so you can still call us for the silly season…. This is the woman who hasn’t started Christmas shopping (or even written a list) I know all about leaving everything to the last minute at this time of year! – I am still sitting here trying to understand where the last year went … I’m sure it was only Christmas a couple of months ago wasn’t it!

Yay for Christmas, Yay for photo booths and YAY for fun! Love, love, LOVE this time of year as crazy as it may be!


Photo Booth Xmas


Wahooooo bring on the 25th!!
