The story of Photobooth Fun starts, like many a great story, with love. In our story, a boy loved a girl and he built her photo booth for her birthday party. The photo booth was loved by everyone at the party and many thought that others should enjoy the booth too.
Before long, friends put in requests for their own booths and the boy worked studiously to deliver. Before you could say “cheese”, Photobooth Fun the company was born.
Nowadays, Photobooth Fun is a mix of people who were all friends (in some way or another), before becoming a part of the business. While nepotism is frowned on by many in a workplace, we think it’s a great part of our unique vibe. We’re all genuinely passionate about the company because most of us “asked” to be a part of it
Our photo booths are all around the country and have attended hundreds of amazing events, met thousands of great people and have taken hundreds of thousands of awesome photos. We look forward to continuing our journey and seeing you at your next event.
So thanks to our founder Brett for being the best boyfriend in the world!
One of the great things about birthdays, weddings or other family events is that it brings together family. Often we don’t get to see the rest of the family during the course of the year and so the addition of the wider whanau makes these events special. And its nice to remember them.
That’s one of the cool things about the Photobooth its a great way t capture generations of the same family together in one place. And not in one of those stagey, awkward family photos. Having fun. Together.
Adding an album or an online gallery makes it even easier to preserve and share those memories.
And maybe even use that embarrassing photo of Dad for better leverage when you need that next family loan!
Why bubbles, cupcakes and a photo booth of course!
Imagine a dream like place with stunning clothes, delicious cupcakes, tasty bubbles, friendly people AND our amazing photo booth! If only such a place were real. Oh wait it is and that is exactly what the Taranaki team are planning for New Plymouth next week!

Yes the sun is shining here in sunny Hawkes Bay which means two things… BBQ’s and the start of what we like to call “the wedding season” and of course along with that comes the perfect opportunity for some Photo Booth Fun.
Here’s a couple having some Photo Booth Fun on their wedding day at The Old Church. Thanks Meredith Lord Photography for the shots!
Hawkes Bay has some of the best wedding venues in the country and in some circles is known as “The Wedding Capital of New Zealand” with great food, great wine, amazing atmosphere and awesome people right across Napier, Hastings, Havelock North and beyond it’s no wonder. And of course the one thing that makes a wedding perfect is having a Photo Booth Fun photo booth on site.

Or better still come and see me at the HB Weddings & Events Wedding ExpoTHIS SUNDAY at the Ellwood Function centre in Hastings and I’ll tell you all about it, or call me on 0800 FOTO BOOTH (0800 368 626).

Dont forget to “Check the date before it’s too late!”
Yep, the above title says it all …. we JUST love people! We love our staff, we love our partners and, of course, we love you (the people that step inside our booths and make them come alive!!).
We have a wonderful team of operators up here in Auckland – Sai, Alex, Adam, Sarah, Vivian & Carla. These are the superstars that operate our booths and are experts at getting any party started! They are an awesome, hardworking bunch, and like the other regions around the country, we simply couldn’t operate without them!
We also love our partners – and we work with some great individuals & companies.
If you are planning a wedding and on the hunt for a celebrant, you should definitely check out Erin Marmont – she is AMAZING!
If you are planning a party (be it a birthday or something a little different) and are needing some party equipment, don’t go past these guys …
And of course the amazing people that step inside our booths every day – YOU!! Keep on smiling and enjoy the last few months of 2013!
Photobooth Fun is a Bartercard partner so now there is a fun and exciting way to use some of those Bartercard dollars.
We recently attended the Bartercard National Conference so most of the Bartercard staff have experienced the hilarity and goings on of a photo booth at their event.
We can attend your business conferences, AGMs, Christmas functions, promotion events, expos, set up in your staff lunchroom, store openings, sales days and even set up in store for your customers. You can also sponsor us to appear at charity events – we’ll brand our photo strips accordingly and provide great staff in attendance.
Call us now – dates are filling up fast!
Is anyone else out there glad it’s spring? The blossoms are out in force in Christchurch (so pretty!) and the Photo Booth Fun team are certainly happy to say bye to winter!
The start of September saw us taking the photo booth on its first ever Gondola ride – We were at the Vero Marine Division’s 20th anniversary party up the top of The Christchurch Gondola and I’ve gotta say, that’s the best way I’ve ever travelled to an event! Such an incredible view and such a fun night. Another fabulous party organised by the talented team at Madant - They take having fun very seriously:
It takes a lot of effort to look this serious in one of our booths
Now unless you’re in the know with the PBF team, you are probably unaware that our lovely booth attendant, Emily, is a very on the ball student and a part of the Future Leader Scholars at Lincoln University . This team created the the amazing Lend A Hand charity group:
As a result of the 2011 earthquake, the team of scholars established an annual event to give back to the community. Every year they come up with a novel means of raising money for a charity in need.
And this year, on the 27th September, we get to be a part of the action at the Lend a Hand Charity Evening. The event is aimed at raising awareness and funds for Youthline Canterbury and they have a fantastic night lined up (even on top of the photobooth!). Tickets are selling quick so get on in and support a good cause!
Lots of folk love the Photobooth! It attracts the exhibitionists and, eventually, it attracts the introverts. There’s just something about the fun of pulling the curtain and posing for the camera that people can’t resist.
The Phoobooth also attracts the perfectionists from time to time. Standing next to the Booth you get to watch the vast majority of folks duck inside and wing it in front of the camera. It’s the spontaneity that leads to all the shrieks of laughter coming from inside the curtain.
But occasionally there are those who like to plan. Sometimes you hear them planning a series of poses with a friend in the line to use the booth. Sometimes you hear them plotting inside the booth and every once in a while you see them doing practise shots before they go inside. A quick couple of selfies on a smartphone can really help those perfectionists work out the best poses to maximise their fun, good looks or the message they’re trying to send with the picture. You see a pair snapping away, come along to the Booth and duck inside. There’s still the same happy laughter but the shots are juuuuuust right.
I love seeing all the elements of a wedding come together on the big day – So much goes into planning all the details; it can be a stressful time but the pay off is so worth it. The wedding blog 100 Layer Cake recently featured a beautifully put together autumn wedding that we attended here in Christchurch. The photographer, Andrea Seymour, got a great snap of our photo booth looking cosily idyllic in the garden gazebo at the fabulous Trents Estate Vineyard - This was before the guests arrived of course as it was non-stop action in there once it was spotted!
The photo booth is a perfect element to include in your celebrations – Either giving the guests something entertaining to do while you’re away getting photos or as an addition to the fun of the reception. Either way, we guarantee it’ll be one of the ingredients which go into making your wedding super enjoyable and memorable.
OK so normally I hate to see people posting this early about Christmas but sometimes there’s a good reason…
