Lisa & Brian Up on the Roof

It's a classic love song, and Lisa and Brian's shin dig was a classic party. It's one for the ages, that goes down in the history books of the group of friends in attendance. If you can't tell by the amount of enthusiasm for getting their pose on in the booth, then just take our word for it. The planners said, "Brian and Lisa’s wedding was full of so much love and support from their friends and family who clearly wanted nothing more than to encourage them on their special day. The bride, groom and their guests packed the dance floor until the very last song, even getting an encore out of the band, making sure they had as much fun as possible!" Aside from a gorgeous 3-tier cake from For Goodness Cakes (and an adorable penguin groom's cake), fabulous planning by A Big To Do Event and a breathtaking view of the city at Ventanas, this group of pretty girls an pepped up guys didn't hold back when it came time to celebrate. And we LOVE that, because it makes our job at the booth a heck of a lot more memorable. "The photobooth was such a hit that after the bride and groom spent some time in front of the camera, they added on an extra hour!" the ladies from A Big To Do told us. But as always, don't take our word for it!

Make the Most of Your Budget with Shutterbooth

5 Things You can Check off your wedding day to-do list with Shutterbooth! #1 | Save-the-Date Cards - Tons of couples get the word out to their guests early these days, and we're constantly chatting with those couples, and/or their planners about creative ways to announce the big day.  What we've done is invited couples to come into the booth for a test shoot that they can use to mail hard copies, or digital versions, to their guests to announce that invitations are on the way. Couples can get as creative as they want, with fun poses, quirky props and custom messages. The more (ideas), the merrier! stdback std3 #2 | Your Guest Book - Want more than a hand-written name to remember the friends and family who celebrated your big day with you? With the Memory Book package, brides and grooms can see personalized messages (and the booth pics to remember even more by) from their friends and family. The book is a keepsake, scrapbook-style treasure that couples can display for years to come. #3 | Entertainment at the Wedding - So, your guests have sipped cocktails, filled their plates (maybe twice), forked cake, sang with the band and torn up the dance floor. What now? Having a photo booth on location gives guests another way to let loose, have fun and interact with each other. It's complimentary for your guests, too, so there's no way they could expire on their pose potential. 1956960_10152016198526964_1944696182_o #4 | A Gift for Your Guests - Probably one of the best reasons to hire a photo booth is knocking this budget-sucker off your list.

Prim and Proper Make for a Whole Lot of Wedding Fun!

One of our favorite celebrations this month was the party thrown by (and for) Christina and Brian at Primrose Cottage. You hear the word, "primrose" and think elegance, whimsical and feminine class. But when these guys and their big-day team arrived, that conjured up new meaning for the popular venue. Absolutely, it was elegant and classic, but in a word, this party was just plain fun.

Our new host, Prentice said, "The music was definitely the most memorable part of the whole thing. They had a live band instead of a DJ, and it really set the tone for the party."
That meant a classy crew getting their party on, on the dance floor. The vibrant, live music and unique orchids were the details that really added some of the couple's personality to the mix.
Every good party leaves guests with good memories. In fact, Prentice left with a few of his own, including his favorite - "a couple ladies who visited me a few times throughout the evening decided we had to do one together. They also had me tell them what kind of poses to do. It was a hoot."
And proof you can have a good time without all the extra flair? This setup didn't include any props, but you can see it didn't keep anyone from showing off their best sides… and faces… and poses. Enjoy!

Shuttergram Makes Things Glitzy for Gazal and XXX

Ok, fans, here it is - the low down on our coolest trend for party pics: Shuttergram. We use the Shuttergram service when the crowd comes smart phones in-hand, social butterflies showing and there's too many great moments happening to keep them on one person's newsfeed. Basically, when anybody at the event uploads a picture to Twitter or Instagram using the event's hashtag, Shuttergram embeds the image into a custom template and prints it off for the crowd to keep for themselves. Of course, to keep things vibrant, we also brought our sparkly gold backdrop with us, so that people could opt to take their pictures in front of a glitzy canvas.

 "The crowd was having a lot of fun trying on Gazal Eyewear's new designs," host Rebecca said after the grand opening of Gazal Eyewear in Edgewood. "They enjoyed taking selfies in the new styles for Shuttergram and loved being able to print them out right there. The atmosphere was great, and it seemed like everyone got a chance to talk to the owners, Gazal and Andy, who were awesome, too."
"It's a great idea, because when people get their pictures in a customized template and take it home with them, it keeps the event and the brand name in mind," Rebecca pointed out. "Shuttergram encourages people to take pictures and use the hashtag, which creates a greater buzz on social media. I also think that Shuttergram is a good idea because if the event is in a smaller space, it can be difficult to incorporate our photobooth or open format. The Shuttergram package allows people to have a product to take home while taking up very little space at your event."

StudioWed's Blissful Bridal Tea

DESCRIPTION


A Wedding Day Fit for Football Kings

Our host Emily remembers Lauren and Leigh's wedding day fete as something she describes as, "breathtakingly posh."
No doubt, with gold as the primary color and sophisticated pops of yellow and navy here and there, this party was nothing short of celebrity-status. And, since the groom was a celebrity himself - he wears a ring from his favorite year as a New Orleans Saint - it was one for the Shutterbooth books.
"Everyone was very fashion forward and beautiful," Emily said. "And no matter their age, they were all having a good time on the starry dance floor thanks to the help of the DJ. They were 'turnt up' you could say!"
Her favorite memory of the night was watching the groom's dad photo bomb a lot of the guests throughout the night. It was entertaining, hilarious, and reiterated the point that not every picture has to be vogue-ish.
Here's a few of our favorites - Enjoy!

Park Tavern's Tops in Wedding Venues

We love getting to do weddings and events. But, when we get to do them in a venue that truly highlights the great, gorgeous city we live in, well, that just adds something special to our work week. And for that, we want to give a shout out to the talented team at Park Tavern's Piedmont Garden Tent and Piedmont Room. "It's in the heart of Atlanta," our host Johnny says. "Both venues are elegant, but also hip, so people really like it."

He says The Garden Tent is his favorite spot because it's an open-air setup, but he loves both the Piedmont Room and the Tent for their great views of the Atlanta Skyline and Piedmont Park. "Photo booths are great at weddings because they provide guests with a fun activity they would likely not do otherwise (when was the last time you got in a photo booth at the mall?)," Said Lauren Blaska, the director of sales for both venues. "They’re fun and it’s a win-win for both the couple and the guests since most photos booths print two sets of photos." She adds, "We adore Shutterbooth and their entire team. They are always extremely professional and great to work with! Courteous, on-time, friendly, and fun!"
We've done tons of events there - both for corporations, small businesses and groups, and weddings. Here's a peak at some of our most memorable from the last year, including the Pi Beta Phi Beau and Arrow Formal, Samantha and Allen's wedding, Creative Loafing's Margarita Wars and Lauren & Leigh's Wedding. 13560188-53305c4abac48 14024080-537147c5dd632 14231993-538512cdd23b8 14779585-53baabdf77440


A Summer Soiree with StudioWed Atlanta

Is it hot enough for you, yet? Luckily, the event industry professionals here in the city know that a good party can be had, no matter how high the thermometer gets. With ice-cold cocktails, chilly beats and (of course) something to distract the guests with (ahem, the photo booth!), the party never falters. As always, we love getting to be a part of anything StudioWed Atlanta does. Last month, we helped celebrate the summer issue release of Weddings Unveiled magazine. With friends down from their headquarters and all the chicest planners and wedding vendors here locally, we threw down and had fun, all in the name of southern sophistication. Here's a glimpse at some of our favorites, but the entire gallery can be seen on our Facebook page, here. 10445919_10152223985646964_5515935047682450803_n 10364160_10152223985516964_8548439386884681084_n 10430362_10152223983751964_3084839453593097586_n


Meet Megan | A Shutterbooth Sister

 

Hey ShutterBooth fans - Have you met Megan yet? She's been hosting with us for almost a year now, so we figured it's about time we formally introduced her. To do so, we sat down to chat about the ins and outs of what makes her, her. And, why she's loving the behind-the-curtain life.
Booth
Why did you start hosting?
For various reasons, really. But mainly because it allowed me to not have to a hire a babysitter. My husband or mom watch our girls and in all honesty... hosting has turned into my "mommy break". Plus it's fun to work with my sister - Emily
What's Your Favorite Part?
The nostalgic feel it has and the memories I hear from guests at every single event where we work.
 
Booth 1
Can you share your most memorable event worked to date?
That has to be the one that started off with a torn dress (mine) being stitched up by hand by the matron of honor. But hey...it ended with me running into a famous football player when the wedding concluded.
 
What's the secret to good photos?
To get the most of your experience in the booth and not to over-think it! Just have FUN and make a memory!
 
Where can fellow Atlantans find you when you're not manning the booth?
There are a lot of places I like to eat and we just recently found a family-owned place on the gallery level of the Peachtree Center called Aviva (random, no?). It's mediterranean food and I could eat it everyday. Otherwise, I'm staying busy entertaining my two girls and cleaning up after them, taking pictures, teaching kids at church music and hoping there is a moment in the day where I can exercise or at least think about exercising ;)
 


Custom Cleverness in Palatable Props

Okay brides, grooms, partygoers and planners… Here is the ultimate detail dream - custom photo booth props. And while we love our feather boas, oversized sunglasses and viking hats, there's a world of untapped creativity out there in 3D paper goods just waiting to leave their permanent mark on your memories. You can go handmade, Etsy-ordered, stationer coordinated or store-bought, they're all uber cute and promise some serious standouts in your photo albums. Not convinced? For Goodness Cakes - some of the world's best cake - invited us to be a part of their grand re-opening in Norcross. They worked with their design team (Miss Rebecca, to give proper credit) and created a cake-filled, taste-inspired table of fun props to choose from.  Here are a few of our favorites from the night!
