Our history below marks just a few of the highlights of the journey
that we have taken to produce the best Photo Booth Rentals, Special
Events, and Photography products possible.
Looking forward to the future!
In 2020 we were set for our best year ever, until the Pandemic hit
events. During that year almost all of our bookings were forced to
cancel because of venue closings or rules not allowing people to
gather. So now we are looking forward to our best years ahead!
Introduction of the Mirror Me or "Magic Mirror" Photo Booth
Our Photo Booth business continued to grow, with 1 or more bookings
each weekend. With the demand continuing to grow, we were seeing
requests for a new type of Photo Booth. Our clients had seen
information on the interactive Mirror Me Photo Booth. The Mirror Me
Photo Booth uses projected animations to engage the guests and gives
them a chance to place a message or their signature on the
photographic printouts. They could also email the photos to themselves
as well as receiving the printouts.
I assembled a 2nd Party Booth and my son and his wife began operating
it. With our 2 Party Booths and our other 3 Photo Booths we were able
on occasion to book 3 Photo Booth Rentals on one day.
The Party Booth Is Born!
All the time using our existing Photo Booths, I realized that each of
the Photo Booths had short comings in how they operated, the products

demand for rentals. I purchased a used Photo Booth for our 2nd
offering. Six months later we got a 3rd Photo Booth of a different
design to vary our offering.
Photo Booths Gain Popularity
Within a few months of offering our Photo Booth for weddings,

Photography Business Grows
After a few years, my photography business had expanded to the extent

portraits, high school seniors and family studio portraits.
My business continued to grow, with my wife, daughter and son becoming
