Sedona’s Bat Mitzvah

Sedona’s mom and dad (Paula and Eric) booked our photo booth at the suggestion of Kristin at Orange Tree Golf Course.  I looked at the contract dated August 14, 2014 and all of a sudden, a year has passed.  We have had our photo booth rental set up in various locations at Orange Tree.  This time, we were set up in the ballroom in the corner.  It is perfect because we are out of the way, but everyone can see us.  Unlike the traditional cookie cutter photo booth that sits in a corner, the guests took pictures the entire time.  The only time pictures were not taken at the photo booth was during the candle lighting ceremony and speeches.

The theme of Sedona’s Bat Mitzvah was Dr. Who and Eric made a really cool Dr. Who teleporter that the kids went into.  There was even a light in the teleporter!  Paula had originally wanted a Dr. Who green screen but ultimately decided on the blue and white backdrop.  I think that visually, a fabric backdrop looks better, rather than having a green fabric backdrop.

The DJ and MC for Sedona’s Bat Mitzvah was Living Energy Events and Productions.  They were great!  The kids had a lot of fun and the DJ was dancing along with the kids.  Kristin, the event coordinator at Orange Tree is absolutely wonderful to work with.  Orange Tree Golf Course is one of our favorite venues.  She is very hands-on with the planning and throughout the setup, she was directing her staff to ensure the room was perfect prior to the guests coming into the room.

Brandon and Sarah’s Wedding Photo Booth

Brandon and Sarah’s photo booth at their wedding reception at An Old Town Wedding and Event Center was scheduled to run from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., but because the guests were having so much fun, Brandon added an extra hour.  The wedding colors were mint green, blush pink, and brown, so I chose those colors in our background for the photo booth pictures.  Of course, any time our photo booths are outside, the sun and play a part.  Fortunately, as the sun went down, so did the wind — and so did the fun.  Brandon and Sarah only wanted frames for their props because they didn’t want their guests faces to be hidden in the pictures.  This surely did not minimize the fun they had.

An Old Town Wedding is a very quaint, family-owned, wedding venue.  The owners were extremely nice and prior to the ceremony, we had a chance to talk to them to learn how they started their business.

Ritesh and Mahesha.Orange Tree Golf Course

I have known Mahesha for most of her life and when she asked Digital Expressions Photo Booths to be the photo booth at her wedding reception, I was more than happy to do it.  We chose a beautiful gold backdrop for her pictures and the pictures were stunning.  What also made this wedding reception special for me was my oldest daughter was in the wedding and looked beautiful in a sari.  Mahesha looked beautiful and it was also great to see all of her friends that I have known for many years.

TIA Off the Road Tire Conference

The Tire Industry Association had their Off the Road Conference at Westin La Paloma.  We were set up at the beginning of the conference when the guests would arrive.  The background was a green screen with the Off the Road Conference as the background.  Almost all of the people checking in were men and most of the men wanted to wait until their wives got their to get their pictures taken, some of whom were laying by the pool because of the beautiful weather.  For others, it took little coaxing, but when they saw the Viking helmet, a picture was taken.  This was our second visit to Westin La Paloma.  This time, we were set up in the lobby.  When we weren’t busy taking pictures, it was nice getting to know the ladies checking in the guests.

Almost all of the guests were from other parts of the country.  We met people from Moscow and Canada, as well.  The Tucson weather was beautiful and the guests from back east took advantage of being out of the snow and ice.

Joe and Whitney’s Wedding Reception

Digital Expressions Photo Booths partnered with Gold Ring Entertainment for another very successful wedding reception.  Digital Expressions had a lot of fun taking pictures at Joe and Whitney’s wedding reception at Sun Lakes Country Club.  One of my favorite pictures is of Whitney’s grandfather.  He was in a wheelchair and I absolutely love the way he was looking at her in the picture.  There is no way this candid picture could have been captured in a traditional cookie cutter photo booth.  The candid pictures are always my favorite, anyway.  I could tell who were Whitney’s family and who were Joe’s family because everyone of Joe’s family members have dimples.

Union Public House Hallow-Versary Party

This year’s Halloween event at Union Public House was huge.  There was time for the kids until 8:00 p.m., with face-painting, activities, balloons, and a band.  At 8:00, the Digital Expressions Photo Booths booth was set up to run from 8:00 p.m. to midnight for the adults.  We were set up in the courtyard between Union Public House and Reforma Cocina Y Cantina.  There was not a big need for props for this event, for obvious reasons.  What I love about coming back year after year is I get to see some of the same people.  One of the managers was a waitress four years ago.

The backdrop was perfect for the photo booth pictures and there was plenty of room for everyone.  Union Public House was voted the Best Happy Hour for 2015.  In addition to the best happy hour, their food is fantastic, as we always make it a point to eat there whenever we are in Tucson.  We had a chance to meet the executive chef and we were quite impressed.

Salvatore and Ana’s Wedding Reception

I had no idea of the significance of October 21, 2015 until I watched Fox 10’s newscast about Sal and Ana’s wedding and reception.  The ceremony at McCormick Ranch Golf Club started at 4:29 p.m. (the time on the clock tower when Marty McFly took off into the future) and the Delorean was set to visit the future to 10-21-2015.  Sal and Ana wanted two Back to the Future backdrop options for their green screen photo booth rental for the reception, so we worked closely with the bride and groom to choose the two backgrounds they liked.  The next thing I know, there are reporters at the wedding.  Kristy Siefken from Fox 10 Phoenix did a great job reporting on the reception and even took a picture at the Digital Expressions Photo Booth (and showed her picture on camera).

After the cocktail hour, the photo booth shut down for an hour for a “costume change” from the green screen to a gold background for the photo booth during the reception.  Celebrations by Amy Bacon was the wedding planner and she is amazing.  She coordinated every aspect of the wedding and was very open to our suggestions regarding where the photo booth should be set up.  The guests had a great time taking pictures at the photo booth rental.

Julio and Angela’s Wedding

Julio and Angela’s wedding and reception was held at a rented home near Happy Valley Road.  The Digital Expressions Photo Booth rental was set up on the outside porch and after the sun went down – the area was perfect for pictures.  The bride’s colors were deep red and silver and the most fun I had that particular night was taking pictures of the bride, Angela, who chose a silver backdrop for the photo booth pictures.  Angela had incredible energy and a fantastic smile and my guess is she cannot take a bad picture.  Digital Expressions Photo Booths partnered with Gold Ring Entertainment, who was the DJ for this event.  We also had a chance to meet the wedding photographer, Everlasting Cinema, who did a great job with the guests.  The guests had a great time taking photo booth pictures, but I think Angela and Julio had the most fun. #photoboothrental #outdoorphotobooth #openphotobooth #photoboothrentalforweddings

Cody and Kelly’s Wedding Reception

Time flies too quickly and in this case, this past year just flew by.  The contract for Cody and Kelly’s photo booth at their wedding at Sedona Golf Resort was written on October 14, 2014.  Before I knew it, October 3, 2015 was here.  I was happy that this was our second photo booth rental for weddings at Sedona Golf Resort because I knew exactly where we were to set up our photo booth.  The photo booth pictures of Cody and Kelly’s wedding show just how much the guests loved the photo booth.  There was photo bombing going on like crazy and I have never heard so many people laughing with fun at one time.  At one point, the entire reception was on the patio at the photo booth instead of inside the ballroom with the DJ.

Madison’s Sweet 16

Madison’s Sweet 16 birthday party was held at the Mesa Convention Center and the backdrop for the photo booth rental pictures is my favorite so far of all the backdrops I have created for events. Madison’s mother had sent me a picture that she liked with a lighted backdrop with sheer curtains and I came up with this (see below) for the photo booth pictures.  Madison was beautiful on her special night and it was very apparent that she has a huge family and friends who love her very much. Madison lit candles for the favorite people in her life and her father/daughter dance was pretty special.

Ak-Chin Employee Bash 2015

This year’s Ak-Chin Employee Bash was held at the Ultra Star Multi-Tainment Center in Maricopa.  Because of the number of people who come to the Employee Bash, Digital Expressions Photo Booths sets up two photo booths back-to-back.  With the setup this way, two groups of people can take photo booth pictures at the same time.  The theme for this year’s bash was “All Around the World,” so for one backdrop, I sewed world panel fabric together and we used a green screen for the second backdrop. We used the event logo as the background picture for the green screen.  This is the third year Digital Expressions Photo Booths was invited to part of the Employee Bash.  One of the employees told me that every year, there is a vote for what vendors the employees want back to their Bash — so every year, Digital Expressions Photo Booths is invited back.
