You didn’t ask me what’s one of the coolest, most fun things to do at your reception, but if you had I would have answered immediately, "PHOTO BOOTHS!" I’ve been to lots of soirees, experienced several photo booths and have seen for myself how much fun folks have.
What I learned recently is something that you wouldn’t know unless you’re a PP and care about details. NOT ALL PHOTO BOOTHS ARE CREATED EQUAL. I realized that the last time I played in a photo booth and saw the resulting photos. (What’s the digital symbol for "thumbs down"?)
The photos were just plain ol’ crappy. And I wouldn’t have known that if I didn’t have something to compare it to. (please pardon the preposition at the end…I don’t have time to rework it…you get the idea) Since I recently learned that Jensen Films was offering photo booths in addition to their award winning wedding videography, I KNEW Mike (owner of Jensen Films and all around cool guy, talented, and a wholesome family man) was the one to ask. I know his work well and since day one–he did my original video (VHS!) in 1995–all his work has been first class. Anyway, dined with Mike a couple weeks ago and had the opportunity to ask him about the differences I had observed in the photos coming out of photo booths. He answered my question, but I don’t remember exactly what he said…something about just using better equipment (see his description on the website). Mike and I are from the same school: Good Enough Isn’t Good Enough.
Trust me when I say there IS a difference. Now that you know that, have a lookie at www.jensenphotobooth.com. Read, see, and decide fer yer own self.
If you end up with a crappy photo booth, don’t tell The Dove Lady about it. She warned you. And if you invite her to your party and have hired a photo booth, she will sit for photos with ANYone, but do not expect her to put on a silly a** get-up. (tsk)
