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

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!

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


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


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


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….

The Christmas countdown is on

Did you know that there is only 41 more sleeps till Christmas?  Thats right – its not really that far away is it?  The Photo Booth Fun Auckland crew LOVE Christmas and we are on the countdown.

However there is still alot to do between now and the 25th December!  Not only do we need to hit the shops to kick start the Christmas shopping, there is also lots and lots of Christmas parties that we have to attend (with a photo booth in tow of course!).  Our prop boxes will soon be filled with santa hats, reindeer ears and tinsel.

Our calender is already looking pretty full between now and Christmas, however we do still have some dates available.  So, if you are on the social committee at work or have been put in charge of organising an end of year team get-together, give us a ring today.  We will do our absolute best to fit you in – cos lets face it, no Christmas party is complete without a photo booth!

Let the countdown begin …

Happy 150th Hamilton City!

Hamilton, City of the Future aka The Tron, celebrates it’s 150th Anniversary on 22nd November.  The council has $1.50 bus fares all day so no need to worry about parking, just jump a bus and head to the city.

There is a huge party from 3.00pm – 9.00pm with loads of fun events for the family and culminating in a spectacular fireworks display.

Photobooth Fun will be there collecting gold coins for a chosen charity, so make sure you come on down and get a family snap.

For the super-keen, there is a mass Time Warp dance and party down at the Riff Raff statue on Victoria Street from 10.00pm-11.00pm.

Joining in the party spirit!

We love bringing our booth to themed parties; it’s great to see such a variety of costumes in the booth and it’s a great way to help people overcome any shyness – Nothing like a good disguise to encourage a photo or two!

What we also love is joining in the dress up spirit – Our team embrace the chance to join in and I think that our Christchurch operator, Klaudia nailed it with her Day of the Dead look for Mexicano’s Dia De Muertos party.

The team at Mexicano’s obviously share our enthusiasm for joining in the party spirit – We love these guys!

Looking forward to the next excuse to dress up for the booth!

Why so scared – its just a bit of fun!




People often seem to be a bit shy of having their photo taken. More than just shy, scared sometimes.

Even in the age of the selfie there are plenty of people who seem nervous going into the booth for the first time.

With the horrors of Halloween behind us its time to look at something else to be unafraid of…the humble photobooth.

Photobooths are supposed to be about fun, not getting things just right and it takes the pressure off finding that perfect angle. Its difficult to achieve airbrushed perfection when you’re crammed into a booth with 7 other of your mates, several of whom are wearing sombreros. So its perfect for the photo phobic – everyone looks silly but everyone is having a great time.

So jump on into the booth, whether you think you take a great pic or not.

Its not something that goes bump in the night, its something that giggles or downright screams with laughter!

Photo Booth Fun where age is just a number…..

Meet Brian and Clara – they have been married 60 years, they are 81 and 85 years old, and live happily in Taranaki. For their Diamond Wedding Anniversary there was one thing they wanted at their celebratory dinner … that’s right a Photo Booth Fun photo booth!

Photo Boothing in your 80s

Never too Old!

Not only did they have A LOT of fun posing for the camera but they took the opportunity to get some new photos for the wall while they were at it! You see here at PBF you get to keep a USB full of all your hi-res booth photos, perfect for framing, popping in an album or if that’s not your thing there is always the option of blackmail with some of those more … “special” photos!

You are never too old to have fun and you are certainly never too old to get all propped up and smile for the camera in one of our booths. Sure you could opt to have a low key afternoon tea with scones and jam  to celebrate special occasions as you get that little bit older OR you could do what Brian and Clara did and ignore the stereotypes of getting older an get one of our booths and a friendly operator along! Our Booths are perfect for all occasions,ages and events…so next time are thinking of throwing a little shindig or family get together make sure you give us a call!

Kick your party off with a bang!

Halloween is just a few days away, and Guy Fawkes is next Wednesday 5th November – if you’re hosting a themed party why not hire a photo booth to instantly capture all of your costumed glory!
