Photo Booth Geniuses!!

For my friend Claudia’s wedding, I wanted to set-up a photo-booth, where the guests could photograph themselves. I like photo-booths because people are always more relaxed and creative when they are allowed to photograph themselves, rather than when a stranger is taking their photo. And at weddings, inevitably there are guests that I am not able to photograph, so a photo-booth helps ensure that the couples have photos of everyone who wants to be photographed.

So before the wedding, I sought advice on how to set it up from Jessamyn, a photographer friend, who often sets up photo stations at her weddings. And then I sought help from Thomas, another photographer friend, who was also coming to the wedding. Together we set up the station with lights, a cable release and a sign instructing people on what to do.

The day after the wedding, Thomas and I were flipping through the photos, and we found a lot of good ones, but mostly the usual: smiling, kissing, silly face photos…. and then we found this…

Absolutely amazing!! I have no idea who these people are, but they are photo-booth geniuses in my book. Anyone who is that creative when left alone with a camera has got to be fun to hang out with.

And well… then there was this one… but I know these two, and yes, they are lots of fun to hang out with!
