Family holiday fun in the Waikato


We have so many awesome events coming up in the Waikato this year – the Cricket World Cup, Balloons over Waikato, National Agricultural Field Days, the FIFA under 20 World Cup and the Great Race just to name a few!   And this month from Monday 12th – Saturday 17th we’re hosting the Activepost Waka Ama Sprint Nationals at Lake Karapiro culminating with the Hinano Island Night After Party where the Waikato Photo Booth Fun team will be in attendance to capture all of the fun!

The Waka Ama Sprint Nationals are free to watch and with this weather it makes for a fun and exciting day for the whole family, you can purchase a weekly car pass and tickets to the after party at www.wakaama.co.nz/shop. And if you do attend the island night make sure you come and visit us and get your photo taken.


Expo Time!

As the Wellington team prepares for our first Wedding Expo of the year, the North City Wedding Expo, its a good time to quickly talk about Expos.

Just recently I’ve started taking the booth to the weddings of folk who I’ve met at the various Wedding Expos that we attend in the Wellington region and its always really nice to finish something that may have begun two years ago! The thing with so many weddings is that details are often sorted out well in advance and, having been in the job for 18 months now, I haven’t had this opportunity often.

Expos can seem like a bit of a daunting prospect, or unnecessary as you think you’ve got it all “locked down” but it doesn’t hurt to go to a couple before the big day. Mainly because companies, like Photobooth Fun, do deals for these Expos and there’s always the chance of picking up more bang for your wedding buck – and there’s nothing wrong about that.

And its always a great chance to road test some of your products. We love having people in our booths at expos because its easy to see how fast and fun the process is, as well as the quality.

So a big congrats to all the brides and grooms who we met at an expo and ended up joining on their big day. Here’s hoping I meet some more later on this month!


2014 – We have had a BLAST!


2014 Where did you go? Time sure flies when you are having fun!

Our Taranaki team have had an AMAZING year! Sneaking into the photo booth at MANY events while hanging out with some very cool people!

From Brides to Mud Runners, Babies to 85 year olds and Charity events to major functions with everything in between! January to December we just haven’t stopped and neither have the laughs, smiles and crazy poses! There are days we ask ourselves “how can this be work”? Seriously the booth is too much fun to be work!

Thanks Taranaki – you awesome people you!

Bring on 2015! Give us a call to get one of our super fun booths along to your next event! We can’t wait!

The evidence…Taranaki Managers Rebecca and Jordan boothing it up! You may even find Tess our star operator in one of the snaps too…

Awkward xmas family photo’s


Xmas is only a few sleeps away, and by now, millions of xmas family photo’s have been posted, emailed and downloaded all over the world.

Our photo booths operate in booth mode (with a curtain back drop) or kiosk mode (your own personalised back drop – without a curtain) and through the year we’ve captured some amazing family photo’s.  But there is a fine line between super cool and, well just plain awkward.  We’ve scoured the web to find a selection of both – super cool or super awkward?  You decide!

Merry xmas from Corey, Carmen and the Waikato Photo Booth Fun team!

 

 

 


Photo Booth Fun – Andy Warhol styles …..


We are always very keen to try new things here at Photo Booth Fun, and were able to do just that at a recent event with Absolut.  They were holding a Project Reveal party over three days at the Longroom in Ponsonby, and wanting a fun and innovative way to promote their new product – and what a better way then a photo booth!

With an Andy Warhol theme, we were able to make some changes to our usual photo strips, and look at the results below ….

 

Check out more great photos of this event at www.facebook.com/absolutnewzealand

If you have any product launches or events coming up where you want something a little bit different, please let us know what you have in mind …. you just never know what we might be able to do!

On behalf of the entire Auckland crew, we wish you all a safe and merry festive season, and look forward to seeing you all again in 2015!

Bring on 2015!


2014 was a fab year for the South Island team. We boothed it up from Nelson to Queenstown and many places in between. We did weddings, corporate functions, birthdays (ranging in age from 10 to 60!), Christmas parties, school balls, charity events and more.

We saw more laughter than a Monty Python marathon, more poses than a selfie-fest and we still tie with Hawkes Bay for the record for most people in the booth!

We’ve had such a great 2014 in the South Island – Can’t wait to see what fun lies ahead in 2015!

 

Cheers!

Three fun themes


Its party season now and although you’ve probably got the theme picked out for 2014 – here’s a few themes that have worked out really well in Wellington from a Photo Boothing perspective. Maybe try them out in the New Year (when you book us again – no pressure!)

Bond girls

Shaken not stirred

JAMES BOND

Always a fun excuse to just dress glam and easy to accessorise with. Most guys own a black suit and most gals have a cocktail dress of some sort and there’s always plenty to be found at costume hire companies. Its also really easy to add things to the props box for those folk who haven’t quite read the dress code or who feel a bit under-dressed when they show up

 

 

A Mexican theme is always a winner

Nothing says “party” like a Mexican

MEXICAN

You can go as fabulous as the Day of the Dead make-up above, a sombrero and a moustache or even just join your eyebrows together like Frida Kahlo. But Mexican is a great theme that can extend all the way through to food and drinks – especially the drinks!

 

Tinkerbell and Captain Hook

Even mortal enemies become friends at a Disney party

DISNEY

This one’s a little bit out there. But if you want a party with lots of character possibilities and plenty of nostalgic songs to sing-along to why not awaken the inner child in you with something like a Disney party!

Just remember that if you are going the costume party route make sure you check in with your local costume shops to see what sort of stock they have. Its always a bit stink if you get in there and nab the best one and everyone else has to scrounge around!


A Deluxe ‘Pink’ Evening in the Bay


We love supporting local community and charity events, so when our new Tauranga operator Holly mentioned she was assisting with a Breast Cancer Awareness fund raiser we knew we just had to be a part of it.

Hosted by Temptations lingerie & swim wear together with Heaven & Home, guests enjoyed an evening of fine lingerie, swimwear and

fashion with complimentary bubbles & nibbles along with our awesome photo booth to capture the glitz and glamour of the night ;)

If you have an upcoming community or charity event that we can be a part of contact us and let us know!


When our photo booth decided to get dressed up…


We all like to get dressed up and look good for special occasions and the Taranaki photo booth is no different! Even though our photo booths are some of the prettiest around the Naki booth decided to go all out for the recent le Diner en Blanc here in New Plymouth and go for a slightly different look for the evening….

I hear you asking “but what is the le Diner en Blanc that you speak of” well quiet simply it is a lot of white! White on white on white! A rather fancy occasion with lots of fun little quirks that make it what it is – an incredible night out! There are a number of rules for partaking but the number one rule is EVERYTHING must be WHITE! This posed one teeny tiny problem for our booth …. our booth is … well…. It’s dark brown! Not one to step back from a challenge the Taranaki booth agreed to undergo a bit of a  transformation…along came some magical sewing elves … otherwise known as Tarsh (one of the Taranaki booth operators) and Jordan (one of the Taranaki regional managers) …what happened next was nothing short of AMAZING!

I will let the photos tell the story but basically what followed was a number of late, very late nights (or early mornings hard to tell??) and about 100 cups of coffee…but the end result was a beautiful, elegant and totally WHITE photo booth – roof and all!

Check it out….
