We love being a part of bridal shows. We love it. Kinda makes us want to throw in a hashtag with the cheeky phrase ,"thatisall," to emphasize how much we love getting to meet new ladies, their buddies, their moms… and yeah, sometimes their grooms. And at this year's Inspired Bride, executed by the team at StudioWed Atlanta, was a show to beat all shows. …or at least give the best ones a real run for their money. The event was inspired (itself) by style icons of generations here and past - including Ralph Lauren, Valentino, Kate Spade and Coco Chanel. We put our own team to work, crafting a brand-new backdrop for the open booth carrying it's own trendy reputation amongst high-rolling haute couture. Here's a handful of our favorite faces from the booth - What do you guys think of the new backdrop?
Our Open ShutterBooth setups have become a huge hit in Chicago! Choosing an Open ShutterBooth allows you to customize your backdrop with something that's unique for your event. It allows you to have something different and "out of the box". Not the traditional ShutterBooth you have come to know and love! Our most popular backdrops are our sequin backdrops - they are currently available in silver, gold, navy, purple, fuschia, red, and royal blue. We have some more colors in the works and hope to make those available soon. We've also had some creative and DIY rocking brides create their own backdrop. Last fall one crafty bride made an entire backdrop out of paper flowers! If are looking for a more glam paparazzi feel, then our Open booth with a step & repeat backdrop is for you. We can use your custom logo or monogram to create a branded backdrop and finish it off with a red carpet and rope entry so every guest can feel like a star. Is your venue unique and does it offer a backdrop of it's own? Let us shoot that instead. A library, a cool brick wall, vintage furniture, a chalkboard wall - you name it. All make excellent backdrops for our Open booth. Here are some examples of our Open booth setups --
Hot Pink Sequin
The best part is our Open booths still look great with our traditional photostrips!

We were honored to be a part of sweet little Brylee's Pretty in Pink prom last weekend. Brylee (Bree) is a vivacious 3 year old. She has an older brother and a younger sister. On March 6, 2013 she was diagnosed with a tumor on her brain stem called a DIPG. On August 21, 2013 an MRI showed tumor progression and her doctors said she will most likely not make it to Christmas. Brylee has the most amazing parents who have created a bucket list of all the things they want to do with her...things she will miss out on...to make these last few months of her life as joyful and memorable as they can. One thing on this list was for her to get to go to prom!Hilton Garden Inn in Sandy. The room was decked out in fabulous pink decorations. They had delicious treats, a visit from Belle and Prince Charming, a special appearance by Karl Malone, and a lot of the Utah mascots were there as well...Brylee loved them all! The most tender moment of the night was when Brylee and here Dad were crowned prom queen and king. There was not a dry eye in the room. Everything on her bucket list has been donated to help this family enjoy and create as many memories with little Brylee, despite her illness, and the mounting medical bills. If you would like to donate, you can send it to www.childrenandtheearth.com Please contact Sara of Jodie if you have connections to make anything on her bucket list happen!
