What Makes a Great Photobooth?

People often ask us what makes for a great photobooth experience, and we thought we would write a few words here about that. A great PhotoBooth is that special ”something” that adds to the environment and atmosphere that you have created for your guests and it helps you to create a memorable and fun event! Shutterbooth is great at this for more than a couple of reasons!

Our photobooth has been specifically designed to blend in with any event decor- from elegant weddings to birthdays to reunions and more- we are able to join in and add a touch of class! In addition, we can customize every part of our booth to match your theme- we can add logos and “wrap” the booth with ShutterSkinz to really bring another dimension to your next party.

We also enable your guests to customize their own party favors- they will take these away and remember your event for years to come! In fact, our photos are archival quality, so they will last many years and be wonderful keepsakes decades into the future. Each time a guest walks away with a photo strip from ShutterBooth, they have a different gift to take home!

Our ShutterBooths also are designed to accomodate guests of all types and sizes! We don’t have a seat in the back, but this is by design! Having room in the photobooth allows us to fit entire families and large groups in. Our booths are also accessible by wheelchairs and walkers with no problem- this is great for Great-Grandma and Grandpa! :)

Our many options allow you to be creative and customize the experience- we love designing logos, photo guest books, adding props and adding fun! We take pride in making beautiful keepsakes and great memories for our clients and their special guests.

Our elegant photo guest books are priceless and we know that 20, 30, and 40 years down the road people will enjoy and treasure these! We organize these books well in advance so that at the end of the event you can walk away with a completed book… and can enjoy it immediately!

Our technology and pursuit of perfection also make ShutterBooth an execeptional photobooth experience. Our equipment is top of the line and our options are always growing! Did you know that ShutterBooths can print in different colors and different formats with multiple prints at the same time?! It’s because we care about offering options to our clients, and being everything they could want in a photobooth!

Our photos are high resolution digital images, which allow us to do a lot of fun things with your pictures- give us a call to find out what our latest options are. We now offer enlargements to canvas, right from ShutterYou.com! We also have a unique touchscreen interface which makes the ShutterBooth Experience fun and easy for everyone.

Our hosts also make ShutterBooth an amazing photobooth choice- our hosts are professionally trained and love to entertain your guests! When you think about it, no one will interact with your guests one-on-one more than your photobooth host will- and we recognize the importance of this, which is why we are so selective in our hiring of the best! This is why they are “hosts” and not just “attendants”.

Well, we could go on… but we’ll let you make the call- we’re serious about photobooths, and we love what we do. We do not compromise by trying to deliver every service at a wedding. We exclusively specialize in photobooths, because we care. We know we only have one chance to get these photos and create fun for your big day!

We love Movember!!!

Well, its that time of year again… leaves are falling, temps are dropping and mustaches are growing! Tis’ the month of Movember! You may have noticed the last few years the comeback of the mustache… We here at ShutterBooth love mustaches… they are a big part of most of our events! 🙂 And it so happens this time of year mustaches also represent a really great cause, a movement to raise awareness and support for fighting Prostate Cancer.

“Mustache” a question about Movember?? Learn more at us.movember.com! And support the cause!

A night under the stars…

Hey everyone! We just were at Cheyenne and Daniel’s wedding up in Los Gatos! What a lovely couple and what a gorgeous home! We had a great time with everyone and if any of you out there want to know how to throw a first class wedding you should talk to Allison Van Every and her team at Allison Weddings!

We set up in the yard, under the stars and bending hemlocks… it was really lovely! Here is a picture of this great location! There were over 300 people at this home wedding, and we were blessed with fabulous weather and great surroundings.

CC ShutterBooth on Wedding Wire

Wedding Wire was created to ” to create efficiency and transparency in the wedding and event planning space.” It has infused a technological aspect into the wedding and event industry, which helps the engaged couple plan their wedding in an efficient and organized manner.

Wedding Wire is not only beneficial to the bride and grooms, but is also an incredible resource for vendors. WeddingWire offers a self-service platform to reach prospective clients on the web and even through mobile devices! Vendors can schedule online appointments with clients, improve search engine visibility, manage social media as well as network with other local merchants.

ShutterBooth has utilized Wedding Wire for a few years now and we constantly are reminded of how great the resource is!

When we first joined, photo booths were listed under “Event Rentals,” which made it confusing to find ShutterBooth on the vast site. Recently this tab changed to “Event rentals and Photo booths,” which was very exciting news to ShutterBooth.  This tells us, as well as our clientele, that  photo booths are not just a fad and we are here to stay! Photo booths are not going away they are really just getting more personalized.

There are so many great ways to personalize the ShutterBooth.

Take home a Photo guestbook with your guest’s written note next to their ShutterBooth photos!

Or how about branding the ShutterBooth with your personalized logo or event logo?! ShutterSkinz ties the ShutterBooth in with the rest of your event and truly makes the ShutterBooth your own.

You can check out some more ideas on our Shutter Essentials web page.

We are looking forward to a long and fruitful utilization of Wedding Wire. Check out our ShutterBooth page on Wedding Wire!

If you’re planning an event in California, and would like to meet us at our showroom let us know! We would love to help you create a great experience for your guests! :)

Venue Spotlight: The Gardens at Peacock Farms

The Gardens at Peacock Farms is truly a magical venue. The property is shaded by large gorgeous walnut trees and has a beautiful fountain that gently cascades as you say your vows.  You and your guests will enjoy a private setting to celebrate your special day, full-service event coordination, custom floral design by Flowers to you by Jessica, and the romantic feel of a  garden wedding.

 You can choose between two beautiful sun-lit ceremony sites including a hand~laid brick patio or natural orchard clearing. You also have a choice of what kind of structure you would like to be married under: an iron Arch, pillars, or a gazebo. You hardly ever see options like that readily available at venues!

      

We had the pleasure of being a part of a gorgeous Wedding reception at Peacock Farms and it was such a joy to be in such a magical place, we can hardly call it work!

   

The ShutterBooth fits right in under those stunning walnut trees, don’t ya think?

Venue Spotlight: Rancho Santa Margarita

The historic Rancho Santa Margarita venue certainly is one of the most popular venues here on the Central Coast. With people coming from all over to have their weddings and events on the Central Coast, searching for the openly peaceful land that is prominent here, Rancho Santa Margarita has all of that and more!

“Today, the 13,900 acre ranch is owned by three local families. A major emphasis has been placed on stewardship of the ranch, both through the cattle and vineyard operations. It is also home to the Pacific Coast Railroad, a narrow gauge steam engine originally from Disneyland.”

We have had the pleasure of working with Rancho Santa Margarita on multiple occasions and it is always a pleasure to just be out on their beautiful piece of land!

The ShutterBooth fits perfectly and looks great inside the gorgeous barn against the inner stone walls.

   

We look forward to doing many many more ShutterBooth events at this stunning venue!

Here are some of our favorite photos from the day!

 

We hope everyone had a wonderful time!
