This month we were luck to be part of the Weet-Bix All Blacks Trade Breakfast in Christchurch where some of our favourite Â All Blacks came along to meet some adoring kids, eat brekkie and chat with them. So cool to see so many happy fans and extra cool to have all their smiling faces come through the booth!
We look forward to joining them for the next event in Auckland in October!
As the countdown to Christmas begins (101 sleeps to go for those that are counting!), we are gearing up for a busy festive season, here at Photo Booth Fun.
We are already jam packed with work Christmas party bookings, but do still have some dates free – so get in quick if you are wanting a photo booth at your party.
Aside from that, we have some really wonderful charity events coming up in Auckland.
On the 12th November we are going to be at the “Share the Dream” fundraiser, which is a major fundraising event hosted by Upside Downs who support young children with Down Syndrome.Â The very talentedÂ singer-songwriter Anika Moa will be performing and there will be food trucks, a DJ, a raffle for an iPhone and live and silent auctions.Â Tickets are $50, and will sell quickly, so if you would like to come along please email email@example.com.
And then on the 10th December we are very honoured to be part of the Special Children’s Christmas Party, being held at the ASB showgrounds.Â Â This is a massive event put on for sick, disabled and underprivileged children, and we are so excited to be involved.Â Â You can read all about it at http://www.scevents.co.nz/
Its definitely going to be a busy, but exciting, few months ahead.Â We are so excited about joining everyone this coming festive season, and helping to create memories to be treasured for many years to come!

Last year, Photo Booth Fun were very privileged to take part in a family fun day with the Upside Downs Education Trust – an organisation which was established to support young children with Down Syndrome.Â Last year they had a fantastically fun family day at Jump in Albany, and we provided a photo booth, which was a massive hit with everyone.
This year we have been invited back again – which we are very excited about!Â Here is what Hannah from Upside Downs has said …
“I just wanted to send you a message to say that our community really, deeply appreciates you helping us out in this way. I was able to send many of the families the image files you gave me last year and they were so delighted to have photos of their family all together. It really means a lot to have you help out, especially two years in a row”
We look forward to seeing everyone again at Jump next month!
You may remember seeing a post back in April when we found out we had been nominatedÂ for a Taranaki Wedding Industry Award – we were so excited to have been nominated! We were up against some AMAZING businesses who we love to work alongside at events…we would have been so happy for them to win, there really were so many deserving businesses.
The awards night rolled about and the Taranaki team headed out to the event (with the booth of course). Taranaki Weddings had put on a spectacular evening and the teamÂ were having a ball! The time came to read out the nominations and as the name “Photo Booth Fun” was read out and displayed on screen the team was so proud to have been included….there was a pause and then… “and the winner of the Entertainment category is…. PHOTO BOOTH FUN”
“Oh my gosh – that’s us”
“eeeeek we won, far out”
“did you write a speech? – noooo”
“lets get up there”
What aÂ feelingÂ it was to walk on stage and accept the award – so THANK YOU wonderful, beautiful, crazy and fun clients!
Thank-you for nominating us, thank-you for voting for us and THANK YOU for having us as part of your event! We truly appreciate that you pick us to be there and we REALLY do love our job!
Last weekendÂ the Hawkes BayÂ PBFÂ team had the chance to spread some good cheer withÂ aÂ great bunch of kids and their families at the Special Childrenâ€™s ExtravangazaÂ Party in Napier.Â Check out the Photo Booth Fun galleryÂ here.
Heaps of local businesses supported the day â€“ either with their services like us, or by contributingÂ giftsÂ toÂ 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 websiteÂ â€“ weâ€™ll be back ;)
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 ingredientâ€¦â€¦.it needs to be FUN!!!!!Â Â 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.Â 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 howâ€¦with laughter.
Take a look at this beauty. She took a colourful hat with some funny glasses and added a gorgeous smile to boot.Â Perfect!!!!
The props we use are:
Fake moustache or lips
Dress up Hats
If you want the FUN element at your next party then make sure to hire a photo booth from us here at Photo Booth Fun!Â We have a box of props free with every package so youâ€™ll be sure to have a great time with loads of laughs.
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!
Have you been given the task of planning a family member or friends baby shower? Or know someone that is planning one?Â 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!Â 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.Â 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!
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
