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

Special thanks for a special time with some special kids!

Last weekend the Hawkes Bay PBF team had the chance to spread some good cheer with a great bunch of kids and their families at the Special Children’s Extravangaza Party in Napier.  Check out the Photo Booth Fun gallery here.

Heaps of local businesses supported the day – either with their services like us, or by contributing gifts to the 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 ;)

Fun With Props

We are finding props are making the party this season!

They add so much fun to any event. Whether you are having a wedding, a party, a school ball or any party really, there is one essential ingredient…….it needs to be FUN!!!!!   A photo booth definitely adds the fun to any event but adding a photo booth with props takes it to a whole new level.

Props give the guests a chance to let loose and be silly. They also add spontaneity and help create great looking photos.  You are guaranteed huge amounts of laughs, with guests lining up to get a piece of the action. Creating lasting memories the best way we know how…with laughter.

Take a look at this beauty. She took a colourful hat with some funny glasses and added a gorgeous smile to boot.  Perfect!!!!

  • Fake moustache or lips
  • Oversized glasses
  • Dress up Hats
  • Masquerade Masks
  • Rabbit Ears
  • Island Lei
  • Wigs
  • and more

Kids love Photo Booths too!

Putting aside the obvious fun Photo Booth Fun shares in at weddings, expo’s, corporate events and activities, retail promotions, parties and more… we just love the invites to kids events and parties.

While the Photo Booth Fun byline of’ “Because people do the funniest things when they think no one’s watching” has real meaning when the grown-ups are in the booth – the kids take it to the next level in their own special way!

Recently our Wellington Team had the absolute pleasure of meeting with the awesome kids in the “Kids on Foot” Kilbirnie Holiday Programme for their 3rd Birthday Bash!


Why not give us a call to talk about how we can be involved in similar activities or events, your business or corporate staff or client end of year staff kids parties or such – the kids will thank you for it!

Planning a baby shower … ?


Posted by , in Photo Booth

Have you been given the task of planning a family member or friends baby shower? Or know someone that is planning one?  Have you ever thought of using a Photobooth? Well I thought we would try it at my sisters baby shower recently – to add a bit of fun, capture memories from the day and save them all in an album, which the baby in question could enjoy looking at later in life.

And, not surprisingly, it was a massive hit!  As the gender of the baby was unknown, I provided blue and pink props, and it was a great way for everyone to show their prediction of what they thought the baby would be.  It provided hours of endless fun for everyone, and left my sister an awesome array of photos to treasure forever.

We have since welcomed a gorgeous baby girl into our family – and while she is yet to have her debut in a photo booth, we know it will only be a matter of time!

3-2-1 Meow!

This month we joined Christchurch Pet Central for a day of fun and fundraising to help out the local cat rescue charity.

People brought their cats and dogs along for a photo booth fun experience – It’s not the first time we’ve had animals in the booth and I’m sure it won’t be the last!

A lot of the staff got in theme for the event and they enjoyed being photographed with their gorgeous Maine Coon cats – These cats are the coolest of cool and they’re so big that even with the super-cute animal themed make up of the staff, they still steal the show


This guy’s a natural for sure!

Late Night Date Night in Auckland


Posted by , in Photo Booth

As the days get shorter, and the nights get colder, it becomes very easy to stay indoors during the winter months and stay warm.  However, we do need to treat ourselves every now and then, and what better way to do it, then a Late Night Date Night!  Every Thursday in June & July (between 5-9pm) NorthWest Shopping Mall in Auckland, will be open for Late Night Date Night, and there are some great prizes to be won!

Not only can you be in with a chance to win a romantic trip for 2 to Queenstown (simply take your receipt showing $10 or more spent in one transaction at certain food/beverage retailers  to the Customer Services Kiosk to receive your unique entry code), but you can also have some fun in one of our photo booths!  Not only is it free, but if you Instagram a pic of your photo booth photo strip with the hashtag #nwdatenight, you could win a $50 NorthWest Gift Card.  Thursdays don’t get much better than that!

Come along and say hi – we would love to see you there!

2degrees Comedy Convoy

The South Island team were stoked to be invited back to join 2degrees on their 2016 comedy convoy, this year hitting 3 spots in the Mainland: Nelson, Christchurch and Dunedin. We’re based in Canterbury but we love to travel and our booth is so easy to transport, we can go anywhere!

Guests got a double dose of fun with both the photobooth and the hilarious comedy acts. A quick turn in the booth beforehand saw many punters entering the show already laughing!


Keep smiling!

Winter Party Time is here again!

It might be cold, windy and wet outside and memories of summer days are fading… but why not engage the winter months head on with a party for staff, friends and family?

The Winter Solstice, the shortest “day” of the year is just a few weeks away (June 21) … but who needs daylight to party and to have fun!

And of course, along with good food and refreshments – why not invite Photo Booth Fun along to join the party and record the festivities!

As with all our packages, not only do the guests get one or two copies of our highest quality photo strips – but we love to work with organisers to enhance any theme,
and to of course share our collective decades of  knowledge, ideas and experience in pulling off the best parties ever!

Whether it be to supply themed props, create a custom backdrop, theme the photo booth, design a unique photo strip template or provide a personalised photo album to record the party (antics and evidence!) … Photo Booth Fun can supply all these and more!

So… if you are having a winter/solstice party… Photo Booth Fun would love to be “invited”.
