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 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.
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.
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.
Nicole’s mom booked Digital Expressions Photo Booths for her daughter’s Bat Mitzvah in September 2017. All of a sudden, October 2018 is here. Time flies! Nicole’s theme for her party was Times Square. Nicole’s mom wanted the first half to be a green screen and the second half to be regular pictures. We spent a lot of time going back and forth regarding the backgrounds for the green screen and she ended up choosing the background on the left. What was cool about this is when we went to set up at the venue, the picture on the left was the picture at the back of the room. I had asked Nicole’s mom if she chose the picture in the room and she said it was chosen by her event coordinator. The night was a huge success.
Digital Expressions Photo Booths‘ last trip to Sedona (before our new buyers take over the business) was to Crystal and Allen’s reception. Our first time at a VRBO, the photo booth rental was set up in the front room so we could greet the guests to take their pictures for the photo album that was used as their guest book. As you can see, there is a place next to each picture for the guests to write a note next to their picture!
Although the wedding reception was small, the guests took a good amount of pictures and loved the props.
Alyssa and Rudy’s wedding reception at Orange Tree Golf Club was a huge hit. There were 150 guests and once the photo booth rental opened, the pictures were taken for three hours non-stop. The best part is that everyone took home pictures. Alyssa and Rudy’s wedding theme was geometric cactus, so she chose the template below for her photo booth pictures. Digital Expressions Photo Booths has been to Orange Tree many times and has established a fantastic relationship with this venue. Carrie has taken over for Kristin and she was also very easy to work with.
Victoria and @djaarontaylor photo booth rental at the Fairway House at Grayhawk turned out fantastic. Digital Expressions Photo Booths set up just outside the reception room where the guests could see the fun through glass. As soon as we were set up, the pictures began. The wedding colors were eucalyptus green and pale pink and Victoria chose a beautiful template for her photo booth pictures. #vicswiththedj #photoboothrentalphoenix #photoboothrentalweddings photoboothrental
The Phoenix Art Museum is one of my favorite venues and I was super excited when Danielle booked Digital Expressions Photo Booths for their wedding reception. Danielle chose the olive green geographical template to go with her wedding colors of gold, silver, and olive. The photo booth rental was set up next to the bar – a perfect place, and every guest too pictures for the photo album that was used as Danielle’s guestbook. #zemelton #photoboothrentalphoenix #photoboothrental #digitalexpressionsphotobooths
What can I say about this wedding? First of all, I was honored that Chelsey and Dan asked Digital Expressions Photo Booths to be part of her day. Chelsey is a good friend of my daughter who lives in California, who was also in the wedding. Chelsey also used to help me with the photo booth when we first started the business. I got to see my daughter and watch Chelsey marry Dan. I have thoroughly enjoyed watching their journey together and was so happy that they finally tied the knot. We have been to the Windmill Winery many times, but this time was truly the most special for us. #ohshitthehuleatts #photoboothrentalphoenix #photoboothrental #digitalexpressionsphotobooths
Rebecca and Anthony’s wedding and reception were held at Garden Tuscana in Mesa, a hidden gem on Main Street and Gilbert Road. Every single person associated with this venue went above and beyond for the wedding couple and for the photo booth rental. We were set up in an alcove off the main ballroom — a perfect place for the photo booth and out of the way so guests taking pictures at the photo booth. The bride chose a silver sequins backdrop for the photo booth pictures and since the venue’s lights turned different colors throughout the evening, these colors were incorporated into the silver backdrop throughout the night.
