Amanda & Chris – June 16, 2016

We were so happy to celebrate with the sweetest couple, Amanda and Chris, during their wedding earlier this month at Cescaphe’s Tendenza, located in Philadelphia.

We kept things simple and classic with the booth, using our Black Sequin backdrop.  Amanda created the most adorable monogram letters using flowers, which we attached to the backdrop for a pop of custom whimsy.  Guests had a great time jumping in and out of the booth, posing with props, and snapping pictures all night long!

The Great Chef’s Event 2017

 ShutterBooth Philadelphia Great Chef's Event 2017

We were so excited to be a part of this amazing event that helps to raise money and awareness for two outstanding non-profits – Alex’s Lemonade Stand and Verti Community Partnership.  Both help kids and their families in different, but important ways.  Silent and live auctions helped to raise money for Alex’s Lemonade Stand and Verti Community Partnership – over $700,000!

URBN

Hosted at the Urban Outfitters Headquarters in the Navy Yard, over 40 chefs and 1200 attendees mingled, bid on auctions, and stuffed their faces with some amazing cuisine.  Those who were able to keep up, kicked it well into the wee hours of the night at the ultra cool after party.  Philadelphia’s own gangsta rap legend, Schoolly D., headlined as the DJ, keeping everyone bopping along and filling the dance floor.

ShutterBooth Philadelphia GCE2017 Boomerang

ShutterBooth may have spotted a celebrity chef hamming it up in the photo booth when he wasn’t busy offering up Federal Donut fried chicken sandwiches.  In addition to Federal Donuts, Adam Perry Lang served up short ribs right off the big rig smoker, and Jose Garces’ Distrito Food Truck was slinging their famous tacos all night long.

ShutterBooth Philadelphia Great Chefs Event After Party

The after party’s beer bar was stylishly sponsored by Peroni Nastro Azzurro.  Guests also enjoyed sips from sponsors Philadelphia Distilling Bluecoat Gin, Tito’s Vodka and Dad’s Hat Whiskey – it’s no wonder guests had a hard time leaving, even at 1:30am!

ShutterBooth offers Boomerang Booths!

ShutterBooth offers Boomerang Booths!

Do you love Boomerang??  So do we!  So much so that we decided to incorporate Boomerang clips into the ShutterBooth platform (we’re just cool like that).  Now, in addition to snapping photos in the ShutterBooth, guests can also Strike A Pose for those awesome Boomerang videos and instantly upload them to social media!

We recently debuted our Boomerang Photo Booth at the Be Well Philly Bootcamp earlier this month – because if there’s anything we’re about, it’s making things fun – even when it comes to working out!!

Guests of the Bootcamp spent the day enjoying different workout workshops, learning sessions from the industry’s leading experts, and the amazing facilities at the Drexel University Rec Center.  We offered an opportunity for guests to let loose and have some fun hamming it up for the ShutterBooth.  Boomerang videos were shot – and shot again and again – and shared across social media so everyone could get in on the fun!

Penn Medicine Celebrates 1000th Lung Transplant

 

 

Fall 2016 marked the 1000th Lung Transplant for the Penn Medicine Transplant Institute.  A reception was held to commemorate the milestone, and ShutterBooth Philadelphia was on hand with a custom VideoBooth to capture testimonials from patients and their families.

It was a remarkable experience to hear the stories, and share in the celebration and excitement with everyone during the reception.  We were so honored to celebrate this amazing milestone by helping to facilitate this reel for Penn Medicine.  The personal, heartfelt experiences shared by patients and their families gives us all insight to the great, life saving work achieved by the Penn Medicine Transplant Team (we’re not crying.. you’re crying).

Claude Giroux Foundation Annual Event 2017

ShutterBooth Philadelphia Claude Giroux Foundation 2017

 

We were so excited to be a part of the Claude Giroux Foundation event again this year!  This year’s event was presented by AAA and held at Helium Comedy Club in Philadelphia.  The comedy was headlined Dom Irrera and Steve Simeone, and the night was hosted by 93.3 WMMR’s Nick McIlwain.

Giroux is the fearless captain of the Philadelphia Flyers and is an adopted son of the city.  The Claude Giroux Foundation, established in 2014, supports various organizations who better the lives of individuals and families in need throughout the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and Hearst, Ontario communities.

Fans mingled with the players while enjoying drinks and hors d’oeuvres, and of course snapped photos with their favorite players in the photo booth.  It was a great evening for everyone who attended, and a great opportunity to support Claude’s Foundation.  Ticket sales, sponsorship and silent auctions all helped to raise support!

We had a great time this past month, celebrating an amazing organization, Fred’s Footsteps.  The annual Party in the Yard was held on March 4th at the ever cool Urban Outfitters headquarters in the Navy Yard.  We couldn’t have been happier to be involved in a night that helped to raise over $200,000 – a record night for Party in the Yard!  Fred’s Footsteps is an organization that provides financial assistance to families who are dealing with a child’s illness.  Helping with non-medical expenses, Fred’s Footsteps helps keep families afloat during a difficult and emotional time, allowing parents to devote their attention where it is needed, on their children.  A huge heartfelt thank you goes out to all the wonderful attendees who donated to this incredible organization!

PAWS Celebrates turning 10!

ShutterBooth Philadelphia PAWS is 10!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We were thrilled to be a part of celebrating PAWS 10th Birthday at the uber cool La Peg Brasserie at Fringe Arts this past weekend!

We can’t say enough good things about this local organization.  It is one that is near and dear to our hearts, because like most people, our pets are considered family members.  The PAWS (Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society) organization is dedicated to saving Philadelphia’s homeless, abandoned, and unwanted animals.  PAWS is the city’s largest no-kill shelter and operates two high-volume, low-cost clinics that service pet owners and rescue organizations that lack access to affordable basic veterinary care.  Through its adoption locations, special events, and foster care network, PAWS finds loving homes for thousands of animals each year.  PAWS is our hero because they are working hard night and day to finally make Philadelphia a no-kill city, where every healthy and treatable pet is guaranteed a home.  We are SO excited to see PAWS reach this exciting milestone, and we can’t wait to see what they will do in the next 10 years.  Congrats!!

If you would like more information about how you can become involved, CLICK HERE.  You can donate, foster, adopt, and volunteer!

Best of Philly 2016

Print

 

One of our all-time favorite annual events, is the Best of Philly Soiree, hosted by none other than our bffs at Philadelphia Magazine.  Each year, the City of Brotherly Love competes for the Best of the Best.  Winners are crowned royalty, thrown an awesome party, and are able to boast their successes with the publicated truth.

FullSizeRender

This years’ festivities were held at the gorgeous Dilworth Park in Center City at the ground level of City Hall – seriously, who could ask for a a better backdrop??  Many of the winners were on-site to provide amazing food bites, and drinks with just the right amount of kick.  A huge shout-out to Evantine Design, Eventions Productions, EventQuip and Brulee Catering for making the event a show stopper!!

If I had to rank ShutterBooth’s popularity at the event, I would have to say that the line, alone, spoke volumes (literally).  We want to say THANK YOU so much to everyone who waited, and waited (and maybe waited some more) all to stop by and snap some photos and upload some GIFs.  We had SO MUCH FUN with all of you!!

3 Things That Will Never Change About High School

Everyone has their memories of high school -the good, the bad, and the ugly- and it seems like people’s opinions on that stage of life fall on either one end of the spectrum or the other. Either high school was the time of your life or the time of your life you wish you could forget. No matter what your feelings are around those four years, there are a few consistent themes in every high school:

1. Not everyone can hang with the cool kids. Every high school has their popular crew: the cheerleaders, the jocks, the kids that just fit it….And some of us – like myself – were nerds. (If you are not sitting at the cool lunch table…you probably fall into the nerd category. It’s okay – one day you will grow up to be a great writer and those memories of getting stuffed into lockers will start to fade as you bask in your incredible wealth and stunning good looks. Fingers crossed…)

2. If you are not aware of what’s cool and don’t follow the social acceptability guidelines set forth by the people who are cooler than you dictated by the people who are older than you, you can lose your social status in the blink of an eye or the drop of an uncool bomb.

Example:
Me: Hey everyone. What did you guys do this weekend?
Everyone: We went to the Ariana Grande concert. It was hella dope.
Me: Wow! That sounds totally rad. I just got tickets to see One Direction for my birthday. Does anyone wanna go?
Everyone: Oh my god. Did you just say One Direction? We are totally over One Direction. One Direction is for, like, middle schoolers. Ew. Ratchet. You just totally gave me a cringeattack.

3. Your life totally changes when you get your driver’s license. Regardless of what your high school experience was, who doesn’t remember the excitement they felt about turning sixteen? The anticipation of getting your driver’s license, driving your friends around with the music on and your windows down, and that first real taste of independence and freedom….killer memories.

Trying to figure out who you are and where you are going all while keeping track of the endless list of totally cool and absolutely NOT cool clothes, trends, and pop culture can be exhausting. Take a lesson from the awesome high school kids we hung out with this weekend. Sometimes it’s okay to just kick back, relax, and have some fun. You’ll have plenty of time to look cool later.

Life’s a Peach

 

From the sweet peach place settings, the peach trees strewn throughout the venue, the adorable wands wrapped with cascading ribbons and bells, and the “Mint to Be” favors, we couldn’t get enough of Nichole & Dale’s aesthetic for their big day! So many details went in to making everything just right, and the entire venue was transformed into a space which really represented the couple.

Let it be said that while this wedding looked like a webpage straight out of Style Me Pretty: photo 5This was a FUN wedding. These people didn’t come here to show off their shiny new outfits, to enjoy a fancy dinner, or to sit and look pretty at their respective tables all night. These people came to party – turning speeches into rap songs like the Fresh Prince of Bel Air Theme and taking one million shots in our ShutterBooth. (Ok. That may be an exaggeration, but they took a LOT of photos. Way more than our average Shutterbooth client. Way more.)

Despite the thoughtful decor, the filet dinner, and the over the top centerpieces, all that mattered to these guests was having fun with the new couple. In our little corner of the reception, never before have so many people crowded to take so many fun and unusual shots in our booth. Thanks for a fun night, Nichole & Dale!

Sometimes the photos just speak for themselves:

From a cute couple enjoying some camera time…..

To a man enjoying a roll and a beverage until photo bombers crash his party….

To a reenactment of the Heimlich maneuver…..

 

 

This is art, guys.  To see more awesome shots from this super FUN crowd, check out the ShutterBooth photo gallery.

Laughter: The Secret to a Happy Marriage

One of the wonderful things about what we do is having the chance to witness some of the most beautiful and memorable moments in a couple’s life. There are couples that we meet that we just know will be married for years and years to come, and we are so grateful to watch them take their vows and start their lives together. One of the things that we notice in the couples who seem to be the most happy and the most in love is their ability to have fun, to laugh, and to enjoy life together.

Cari and Ed sure know how to let loose! From the few glimpses we had into their relationship, we just know that these two have figured out the secret to a happy marriage. (If you think we’re going in the  “happy wife-happy life” direction, think again.)

The secret to staying married and, more importantly, staying happily married, is to LAUGH. Laugh at each other and with each other and you can’t go wrong. Everything else will work itself out. From their hysterical cake topper to their funny shots together in our booth, these two have got it all figured out.  Each and every person in attendance could see that these two love to have fun and that they never take life too seriously. To the new Mr. & Mrs. Shabot: We wish you many more years of fun and laughter!

 

For more photos of this zany couple and their fun friends, check out our shots here.
