Every year, the Allie Awards honor event professionals in the city who deserve that extra nod for the creative ingenuity and passion they've showcased on behalf of their brand. It's like The Oscars, but for behind-the-scenes-kind of people. We, no stranger to this group of talent, got to tag along and document the fun that happens when this group gets together for their own big night. And, we love it. Mostly, we love to help memorialize special moments. For anyone, yes, but especially the ones that acknowledge all of the hard work and dedication exhibited by our fellow industry friends and vendors throughout the year's event calendar. 21 years ago the first awards show took place, as the founder noted that the city of Atlanta was fast becoming one of the stars of the event industry. He wanted to create a platform for the local event industry to not only showcase their talents, but also drive them to produce events that could compete on national and even global levels. The Allie Awards are co-produced by ISES and NACE--the top organizations for event and catering professionals--every year. The Allies have grown into a huge production with 30+ awards and multiple charitable organizations made to Atlanta-area organizations. This year, at the city's classic venue The Tabernacle, we got the chance to showcase some of our own newest capabilities, including our new dual layout printing option. This year's theme was Alice in Wonderland, so we put on our graphic design hats on and came up with a couple of fun print layouts below. Which do you like better?

Who doesn't love prom? With sparkly party dresses, sharp suits and every color of the rainbow represented on the dance floor, what more could a high school ask for? We've got an idea - pictures that will last longer than those fashion trends. And we're not talking about the kind of pictures where you awkwardly try and figure out where you should put your hands before smiling beneath a wilting indoor arbor… we're talking fun, personality-packed photos that let you relive that special night every time you pass it pinned up on the fridge. It's the kind of memories you'll take with you to college to show off a little bit of who you are (or were) when you still lived with your parents. Plus, it's a heck of a lot of fun. We got to jump in on the action with North Cobb High as their students streamed in and out of the photo booth, testing out different props, getting creative with their poses and ultimately, creating timeless ways to look back on this night with a laugh. Here are a few of our favorites - But, North Cobbers can see the whole gallery online here!
A picture is worth a thousand words… So, just think about the priceless gift you're sending guests home with from a party where they get four great shots. It's a cliche phrase, for sure. But when it comes to events, you have to ask yourself...what can I send my guests home with to remember my event...without breaking the budget. You just can't beat personalized, timeless and fun. Personalized | Choose from custom tag lines and mottos. Pick your own layout and color scheme. Design a backdrop to enhance your celebration's theme. Create custom props to send your message home with guests. Fun | The team at ShutterBooth is hired (and wired) for fun. They've got a personality to light a creative fire under the most dull picture-takers. With props, colors and the thrill of the booth's rapid-fire pose requirement, you'll never leave with an unentertaining strip. One former bride says, "Looking back through our photo booth scrapbook, we never knew there was a such a fun side to some of our friends and family. It's seriously one of the most fun ways to relive our big day." Timeless | Trends come in and out, but pictures are one of the oldest trades, gifts and memory keepers. Instead of the former, thank guests with gifts they can treasure for years to come. Plus you've got the option for a custom-designed scrapbook to take home - something you won't find with any other photo booth company.

You probably never gave much thought to what goes behind you in a picture... Especially, not since the day you smiled for your last yearbook portrait... Luckily, those days of pastel mosaics, tie-dyed spotlights and gradient drapery are long gone. Pinterest-inspired prints, sophisticated metallics and unique, 3D art have rolled in and replaced everything you thought you knew about backdrops, in a big, bold, colorful way. Here's a few of our favorites...

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 --

The best part is our Open booths still look great with our traditional photostrips!
