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.

Secret Garden’s Open House

Digital Expressions Photo Booths has been the photo booth vendor for many events at Secret Garden and we were delighted when we were asked to be the photo booth vendor at their open house on August 26, 2015.  Maggie and Alexis are the event coordinators at Secret Garden and are very knowledgeable.  We used a shimmery silver backdrop with uplighting and everyone just loved the pictures.  The lights changed colors and results in different looks for the pictures.  Everyone we met were so nice and we were very impressed with the turnout of people.  The vendor next to us was Vintage Chic Rentals, who rent furniture for staging at events and Rita’s Floral Designs gave everyone a rose at the end of the open house.  The DJ for the open house was Starz Entertainment.   Digital Expressions Photo Booths do a lot of open houses and we subsequently book a lot of weddings because brides actually get to see how the photo booth looks and how great the pictures are.

CJ and Jules’ 80’s Birthday Bash

Jules and CJ combined their 40th birthday party, with an 80’s birthday bash theme.  We had set up the photo booth in the front of the house so when the guests arrived, they would take their pictures as they went in.  We enjoyed watching all of the guests in their costumes.  Having an outdoor photo booth rental in phoenix in Arizona in July is usually very hot, but the weather cooperated due to a hurricane in Mexico.  It was overcast with a slight breeze, so we stayed remarkably cool the entire evening.  However, on our drive home, the rain started coming down, so the Digital Expressions Photo Booth ended just in time.

Chris and Casey Wedding Reception

I know when I think of Prescott, Arizona (5,000 feet), I don’t consider the fact that the temperature can get up to 100 degrees, but it can.  On the flip side, when the sun goes down, the temperature cools off almost immediately.  We had the pleasure of going to Van Dickson Ranch a second time in one month — this time for Chris and Casey’s wedding reception.  Because of the breeze, the background for the photo booth pictures was the natural background, but this time, we were able to set the photo booth up going a different direction, resulting in a different background than the photo booth background from two weeks ago.

Digital Expressions Photo Booths partnered with Gold Ring Entertainment for Chris and Casey’s photo booth rental.  Gina does such a great job interacting with the guests with games and poems.

Jordyn’s Bat Mitzvah

Digital Expressions Photo Booths had a lot of fun at Jordyn’s Bat Mitzvah at the Scottsdale Princess.  Not only did we get to meet a lot of nice people, we had a chance to see photographer, Brett Campbell, and his wife, a husband/wife team.  Jordyn’s colors were pink, purple, and teal.  I was originally going to use all three colors in the backdrop, but then I remembered the variegated pink and purple fabric I had and knew that would be perfect for the photo booth rental backdrop.  The photo booth ran for three straight hours and not only did Jordyn and her friends have fun, but so did the adults.

STAND Youth Conference

 Students Taking a New Direction (STAND) had its sixth annual youth conference at the Wigwam Resort in Phoenix on June 12, 2015.  Each year, STAND members from around the state converge in Phoenix to celebrate their efforts for the year and to learn about new ways to combat tobacco.  This year, the theme was hero’s and villain’s and the kids dressed up as their favorite hero and villain.  The celebration highlights a three-day conference designed by STAND members to increase leadership skills and inspire future efforts.  This year, STAND asked Digital Expressions Photo Booths to set up our photo booth for the kids — and obviously for the adults, who had just as much fun.  It felt like Halloween in June.  Being the mother of four grown children, I truly appreciate the dedication these young minds have to this organization.

Kolter and Katie’s Photo Booth

Digital Expressions Photo Booths set up Kolter and Katie’s photo booth on the back patio at the Sedona Golf Resort.  What a beautiful place to have a wedding, surrounded by the red rocks of Sedona.  Katie’s wedding colors were navy and silver so we chose a navy and silver backdrop for her photo booth pictures.  Robert Godridge was the wedding photographer, and although we had seen Robert at many bridal shows and open houses, Digital Expressions Photo Booths had never had the pleasure watching him work.  The DJ of the event, MT Sounds, played excellent music and we will have the pleasure of working with this company again in October for another wedding.  The photo booth was contracted to run for three hours, but I never leave an event until the bride gets her pictures taken.  Katie and Kolter came out for their pictures at the last minute, but we got some amazingly awesome pictures.  Katie and Kolter were fun and such a beautiful couple!
