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

Getting your DIY on….

Here at Photo Booth Fun we are big on the kiwi way of DIY! We have seen some pretty amazing props created especially for our booth events…we have even been known to create our own!

If you have an event coming up and you are the DIY type you are probably about to spend hours flicking through inspiration boards online looking for that perfect idea…well let us save you some time and have a look at some super cool DIY photo booth props…

Not the DIY type? No worries – just ask about adding our Photo Booth Fun props to your package and let the fun begin!

Remember when it comes to props there are no rules! Blackboards, frames, silly faces….anything goes and that is just the way we like it!


15 of the most Epic Photo-Bombs…

One of the awesome things about photo booths is they inevitably attract the photo-bomber. Several events we’ve had in Hawkes Bay over the last year or so have even developed into a competition to see who could effect the perfect photo-bomb. Did they succeed..? You decide…

Where has the year gone … ?

Here we are more than half way through the year already. We are 3 weeks past the shortest day – the days are getting longer now and the warmer weather is just around the corner!!

The past few months have been very busy for the Auckland crew, and we have had the pleasure of attending many fabulous school balls!  We have been at the Rangitoto College Year 12 ball, Rodney College & Kings College ball (just to name a few!) – and we still have many more to come.  If you have had your school ball already and had an online gallery as part of your package, don’t forget to get in touch with the ball organiser for the password (as all the photos are up on our “galleries” page).

Aside from school balls, we have also been very busy with weddings – its great to see winter weddings  becoming more and more popular.   We have also attended plenty of birthday celebrations (including the birthday party of the wonderful Lisa who supplied this fabulous backdrop and some awesome costumes!!) ….

Thank you to everyone who has hired a photo booth at some stage over the first half of 2014 and we look forward to all the wonderful events we have booked for the rest of the year!

School ball fun in Christchurch

It’s been a month of school ball fun here in Chch – So many revellers have been through our Christchurch photo booth lately and they’ve all come out laughing.

We had a ball (geddit?) at St Margarets, Timaru Girls’ High, Cathedral Grammar and Lincoln High and we’ve got the photos to prove it :D











We’re looking forward to 2015’s ball season already!


Stay warm Canterbury.

Winter Blues Be Gone!!!


Wellingtonians are passionate about our city and we don’t put up with a lot of stick from everyone else about our wind and rain. But let’s be honest – there is nothing like a day or two (or five or six) of sideways rain to break even the most passionate citizen of Wellington. And when you get broken by winter the grumps set in.

Just today Facebook has been alive with reports of an experiment that was run that basically shows the more negative and narky stuff in your Facebook feed the more narky and negative your posts become. So why not fight that fact with some fun posts of your own.

Luckily, even at your most depressed we can help you out – get a Photo Booth to your next function. Then your guests leave with a least 4 awesome, fun images they can scan and share and brighten up their news feeds. The good news is that whoever makes the booking also gets our USB stick crammed with all the shots taken in the booth that function. Perfect for sending to people, posting and tagging on Facebook, printing out and hanging on your wall or just generally having a good laugh about.

Guaranteed to brighten up both your Facebook and your day.

Planning an event in The Naki…

Date – check

Venue – check

…. Now what!

Well a Photo Booth Fun photo booth is obviously a must, so once you have checked that one of the list where do you go next…

Entertainment of course! And who better than Dman Entertainment! The PBF Taranaki team work very closely with the Dman crew and we wouldn’t have it any other way…these guys are the BEST of the BEST!

Not in Taranaki…or even New Zealand? No problem these guys often travel to exciting locations to keep the party going!

We have worked alongside Dman at many events with the booth and the feedback is always the same “man these guys are AMAZING”

We cannot recommend them highly enough! So if you are planning an event BIG or small then having Dman and a Photo Booth Fun booth there is a total must!

So how do you find all about Dinnie and the Dman team? That’s easy just follow these links and have a look!

Click here for their website and here for their Facebook page

Then call Dinnie and once you speak to him you will be convinced your event can not go ahead without him!


Oh and check out this photo strip from one of the last events we worked on together – and what a fantastic night it was!




School ball season is upon us ….

Here we are, in June already, which means school ball season is well and truly upon us!  The Auckland crew have been at several balls (and pre-balls) already over the past few weeks, and as expected they just get bigger and better each year!  We have lots more booked in over the coming months too, and cant wait to be part of such an exciting night for students everywhere!

We love seeing everyone all glammed up for their big night …. and what better way to capture all the effort taken to look amazing, then photo booth photos (physical memories to be kept forever!!).

Don’t forget we offer awesome school ball packages, which we can tailor to your every need, so contact the lovely Suze today for a quote – its still not to late to book for this year.  A photo booth is a must have at every school ball so make sure you book one today!


Fighting the Good Fight with Canteen

Relying completely on donations, the Canteen Foundation helps support young people living with cancer.

Here are some of the fantastic pictures from the event. Should you wish to make a donation to the Canteen foundation, you can do so through their website at
