We found the following article by Southern Bride, and couldn’t agree more!
It is undeniable that today’s wedding is shaped by the ever-evolving world of technology. One of the coolest and still relatively new
trends that modern technology has brought us is the use of photo booths at weddings, which has taken off in the past few years. They are all the rage, and you have most likely experienced one at a wedding. But, you probably don’t realize how much the field has changed just recently, and how many new features are available with photo booth rental.
We spoke to Neal Zipser, who launched ShutterBooth’s Triangle/ Central/ Eastern NC division in 2008, about the future of photo booths in weddings.
“We brainstormed, we researched, we identified gaps in services and, of course, we spoke to brides,” Neal says, “We decided that being
a trend setter is better than being a trend follower.” Neal told us about a few ways ShutterBooth has predicted the needs of brides and incorporated technology to do stay fresh.
ShutterBooth identified a gap in spontaneous video, as well as personalized footage of guests other than the wedding party. They added ShutterVideo (still behind the curtain of the booth), where guests have the option to leave a taped message to the newlyweds.
Then, they looked at the affordability issue. Neal says, “While I believe a ShutterBooth is a ‘must have,’ the reality is that it typically is
something that brides want badly but sometimes can’t afford.” So, they created the revolutionary ShutterRegistry, which allows brides to register for a ShutterBooth, so their guests help pay for the service.
In our TMZ/celebrity world, they also found a desire for a “red carpet” experience. So, ShutterBooth now offers the option of the booth without the curtain, so that spontaneous photos can be taken against branded backdrops. The creative possibilities here are endless.
And finally, while a photo booth provides instant gratification with on-the-spot photos, guests still want the availability to access their photos online as soon as possible. With the new Shutter and Share, guests sign up on a laptop at the wedding to have an email notification sent to them when the photos go live.
There is no question that the photo booth experience is one that guests are sure to enjoy and make a wedding event memorable. The photo strips are a wonderful keepsake for the guests and newlyweds alike. And now there are extra user-friendly options from organized help to acquire the booth in the first place, to fun new features and options once you book it. I’m sure the world of photo booths will only continue
to grow to fit brides’ needs, and we will be sure to report it!
ShutterBooth was happy and excited to celebrate Harley and Troys wedding at scenic Chippokes State Park. Mother Nature held off and a beautiful ceremony in the gardens went off without a hitch. The Harry Potter themed reception was punctuated by the groom and three of his groomsmen dancing to “In The Navy” by The Village People (they were all in their dress whites). Thank you for your service, gentlemen!
Here are a few of our favorite decoration and ShutterBooth pics!
Sunday was the PERFECT day for an outdoor wedding festival! The Main Event by Emily put on their 2nd annual Wedding Festival at Chippokes state park.

This past weekend, ShutterBooth took a little trip to Petersburg, VA to the Country Club of Petersburg to participate in the union of Hillary and Jake Conner.
The winter themed wedding was complete with a green and blue candy bar (of which the rock candy didn’t stand a chance!), custom made cake topper, and beautiful memorial to those relatives watching from heaven.
ShutterBooth was busy the entire night taking fantastic pictures of all of the guests, even the brides 93 year old grandma got into the action! Here are a few of our favorites:
Recently ShutterBooth Hampton Roads was asked to bring the fun of Green Screen to the re-opening of their newly remodeled building on their Richmond campus.
ShutterBooth had two locations for the 90 minute open house where all employees were welcomed to explore the building with a fun scavenger hunt to get them acquainted with the layout.
Check out a few of our favorite pictures from the event!!! We LOVED the green screen image used!!
ShutterBooth was able to bring the fun and elegance of OPEN by ShutterBooth to Ashwin & Lexi’s New Year’s Eve wedding in Richmond.
The bride chose the sleek look our black sequin backdrop with her OPEN booth for an elegant and regal feel. The black superbly complimented the champagne color of the bridesmaids dresses, for an overall cohesive feel to the event.
Congrats, Ashwin & Lexi!! Here are a few of our FAV pictures from the reception:
