It’s that time of year! When the ghost ghouls and goblins roam the streets.  ShutterBooth was lucky enough to participate in the 17th annual (third time for us) Barjoy Bash.  The theme this year was “Circus Freak Show”, and the party goers did not disappoint!  From Siamese Twins, the bearded lady, to clowns, this party had it all!!  Here are a few of our favorites (and a cameo strip from my helpers in setting up).

Photo Scheme – Creative Photo Display


Each photo is a unique and memorable experience, so the presentation of them should consequently be just as exceptional.  Arranging your photos can be a chore, but we can help make it easy.  Shutterbooth Hampton Roads has some creative ways to display your photographs that will transform your home and office into a  creative photo display



Telling time has never had more appeal!  Transform your clock into a work of art. Lose yourself in time with some of your most precious memories as you tick-tock, around the clock!



Some say home is where the heart is. Bring your home to life with some of your most heartfelt memories and heartwarming photography. Give your home a pulse and show where your heart lies in the most tender way.


Sick of ugly hues and boring wallpaper? Transform your walls by making them your very own personal photo gallery! Immortalize the memory of a loved one, by adding them to your household decorum.


If wall size is too big, maybe take it down a couple notches with photo canvases. Photo canvassing is another great way to display your pictures because it gives your pictures a clean and professional look. Not to mention, it has a modern flair. Shutterbooth Hampton Roads allows you to take your favorite photos and presents you with an oversized canvas print that can wrap around a wooden frame. Check out our Shutter Essentials!

Southern Bride Says It All!

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!

Congrats Harley & Troy!


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!
