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.Hyatt Gainey Golf Club

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.

Monument Valley’s 40-Year Class Reunion

Monument Valley High School’s 40-year class reunion was held at the Elks Lodge in Flagstaff.  I was looking forward to this event because I recently attended my 40-year class reunion in Broomfield, Colorado.  It took a little while for the photo booth to get started, but once it did, everybody had a blast taking pictures.  This time, instead of driving home, we stayed in Flagstaff for the night.

Mitchell and Sarah Wedding Reception

Mitchell and Sarah’s wedding ceremony and reception was held at Estrella Vista Reception Center.  This was Digital Expressions Photo Booths second event at this venue.  The bride and groom were getting married in the same room as the reception, so when the ceremony began, the guests were already sitting at their tables.  Goldring Entertainment was the DJ for Sarah and Mitchell’s wedding and I had worked with them enough to know how busy they keep the guests with games.  Sarah and I had decided that the photo album that is included in the price would also be their guest book, which is why she wanted the photo booth to begin when the guests started arriving.  This actually worked out really well.  Sarah had only booked the photo booth for two hours and that was plenty of time for the guests to get their pictures taken prior to taking their seat.

Photo Booth Rental in Phoenix

Digital Expressions Photo Booths has joined a few photo booth groups on Facebook.  Since we began our company in 2010, photo booth companies are popping up left and right.  When I see pictures of the photo booth/photo stations, I am struck by the minimalism of these booths.  The owner of one of the companies indicated she had to stand and hold the stand while people take pictures so nobody knocks it over.  To be real, people drink and when they drink, they don’t care about your camera or your monitor.  It is my job to protect my equipment and to stand by the camera to make sure people don’t knock it over is not professional, in my opinion.  Most of these pop up companies are also hiring help at $10.00 per hour (minimum wage).  Someone working for minimum wage is not going to care about the cost of the equipment.  They just want their money.

This is my new 2017 photo booth rental and it is less cluttering than our first photo booth from 2010.  Here, I have a table that protects the camera.  This wedding was at Legacy and was such a small wedding that I didn’t need stanchions, but for larger weddings, I will put two stanchions across the front of the monitor to hold off the crowd.

Digital Expressions Photo Booths is a well-established company in Phoenix and we have built a reputation of being honest and reputable. One of the biggest reasons we stay relevant is because my husband and I do all of our events.  Clients will pay a little more money, knowing the owner of the company is there.

Aaron and Lindsay Photo Booth Pictures

Aaron and Lindsay’s wedding reception was Digital Expressions Photo Booth‘s fifth wedding at Stonebridge Manor.  Lindsay’s wedding colors were blush, white, and metal grey and since her photo booth strips were simple and mostly white, I chose to use grey as the background for the pictures.  There were 200 guests at the reception, so the photo booth rental stayed busy all night.  Thanks to my very good friend, Terri Matz, who referred her niece, Lindsay, to Digital Expressions.  Terri’s first referral to our photo booth company was for the Cox/Ethier wedding at the Windmill Winery, and I was able to see Nicole Cox again.  #photoboothrentalphoenix #photoboothrentalphoenix #openphotobooth

Darren and Aly.5-6-2017

The best part of my photo booth rental business is being able to share it with my friends and family.  Our daughter, Aly, married the love of her life, Darren, at a beach ceremony at Catamaran Resort in San Diego yesterday.  Tess Fresh Flowers did a fantastic job with the flowers and they were absolutely beautiful.  As I sit here writing this post on May 7th, it is windy and rainy outside in San Diego and although it was cool and windy on the day of the ceremony (May 6th), the sun came out at 6:00 p.m. when the ceremony started.  I had to wear two hats yesterday — the mother of the bride and photo booth vendor.  Kayla at Simply Gorgeous Events was Aly and Darren’s day-of planner and she was absolutely the best.  Kayla was aware that I was the MOB and a vendor and really worked with me so I could get our photo booth rental set up for Aly and Darren’s special day.  Yesterday was the first time I didn’t man the photo booth, but I was in the room and monitored everything from time to time.  I loved waking up this morning to do the edits and looking at all of the pictures. #brideandcrume #photoboothrentalphoenix #photoboothrentalweddings

Mark and Lauren Photo Booth

Lauren’s mom found Digital Expressions Photo Booth Rental for Mark and Lauren’s wedding reception at Sassi.  What a very cool place.  We were originally going to set up our large photo booth at the venue, but after looking at the pictures of the venue, I contacted the event coordinator and we both determined that our smaller photo booth would be better for the area.  We were set to start at 8:30 p.m. and when we turned on the light, our photo booth was taking pictures for the next three hours, until the reception ended.  #photoboothrental #photoboothrentalweddings #photoboothrentalphoenix


Declan and Urania Photo Booth Pictures.4-22-2017

Digital Expressions Photo Booth Rental had such a great time at Declan and Urania’s reception at Tempe Mission Palms.  Although the crowd wasn’t the largest group we have seen, they were sure the rowdiest.  They could not wait for the photo booth to begin and as soon as it did, the photo booth rental was non-stop busy with pictures.   I had just purchased a huge selection of photo booth templates and the colors matched perfectly with Urania’s wedding colors. #photoboothrentalphoenix #openphotoboothrental #photoboothrentalwedding
