The “Do’s and the Don’ts” for reserving a photo booth.

What is really important when choosing a Chicago Photo Booth Company?

Reliability, Quality Service, and Real Photo Booths!

The market is becoming saturated with over night photo booth companies. A lot are competing strictly on price and “cut corners” on actually providing a quality experience.

Here is a list of what to look for in a real photo booth company.
1) Quality / Up to date equipment / Real photo booths
2) DSLR Cameras
3) Sub Dye Printers that “cut” strips in half
4) Amazing staff that is interested in your event. Helps out with guests and solves any problems quickly and efficiently.
5) Trained in photography (attends classes). Knows about lighting issues and can make the pictures look perfect.
6) Experienced in working with vendors / event coordination. (we do over 500 events per year with 2 companies that we have. We execute flawlessly.
7) Calls clients and stays in touch with them. We make sure our attendants confirm all the information with your reservation.
8) Amazing customer service. The best in the industry. We have over 200 reviews and we are the “best” to work with.

What you don’t want.
1) Home-made booths
2) Web Cameras (even in some high quality booths) Images don’t look good at all
3) Inkjet printers – Some companies use these and the quality isn’t good. They don’t cut in half and are using scissors
4) Uninterested staff from lack of payment. If a company is providing a booth for $300 then they aren’t making profit. Hence you sacrifice staff and equipment at the same time for a “low quality” experience.
5) Lack of communication with clients. Not knowing if they will show up.
6) Bad customer service. Doesn’t answer calls. Responds to emails a week or two later.

The Top 10 Wedding Trends of 2015

Friday, January 9th, 2015

1. Wild West weddings
If previous years were all about farm-to-table fare and beautiful barns, 2015 will welcome the era of the Wild West. Namely, rustic ranches and lots of leather accents. Jenna Bush Hager was ahead of the curve in 2008 by holding her wedding at Prairie Chapel Ranch near Crawford, Texas.

2. Peace, love and macrame
Music festivals have inspired laid-back events that use kitschy details and earthy settings to set the romantic mood Chicago Photo Booth.

3. Drone and Go-Pro wedding photos and videos
Photographers are taking advantage of new technology for creative aerial shots the couple will cherish for years to come.

4. Bridesmaids duties are now covered — by apps!
Allow apps to help with the small stuff, like TaskRabbit (for all the little to-dos), TouristEye (for planning the honeymoon) and Uber or Lyft (for rides to and from the venues).

5. Food installations
Foodies rejoice! Your favorite part of the wedding party is now taking center stage in elaborate displays like beer gardens, doughnut dessert walls and hanging salad stations.

6. Modern brides dare to ditch the dress
When fashionable celebrities like Olivia Palermo and Solange Knowles choose chic separates or stylish jumpsuits over dresses, you can be sure a trend will follow suit.

7. Unexpected wedding venues
While traditional churches and catering halls have their perks, unique spots like museums, castles or even caves are becoming popular.

8. Pantone’s Marsala makes a statement
Pantone announced that a deep Marsala red would be their Color of the Year and weddings are taking notice. The royally rich color is popping up on everything from the bridesmaids dresses to invitations.

9. Three-time costume changes for the bride
Some brides choose to wear a second dress to their after-party, but Winikka says that now there will be brides who pick a third dress for yet another part of the day. It’s like their own mini-awards show!

10. Formal affairs make a major comeback
Casual weddings have become the trend du jour, but affairs that are staying formal will go to the max. Think opulent details like champagne towers, Cinderella castles, valets or even crowns for the new Mr. and Mrs.

Wednesday, January 7th, 2015

We are so in love with this picture, we can hardly stand it!

Proud mama Kim Kardashian shared baby’s first photo booth shot on Instagram a few days after the big bash. “I have so many cute pics to post but so slow this weekend. Enjoying the Fam and relaxing but will post one before bed of me, Kenny & Nori!” she captioned the pic.

The photo was taken at Kris Jenner’s annual Christmas Eve party and little Nori was definitely more excited about hanging with her mom and auntie than she was about meeting Santa Claus Photo Booth Chicago.

Green Screen Photo Booth

Friday, November 15th, 2013

Photo booth rentals continue to be popular at all kinds of events and celebrations and Magic Moment Photo Booth, Based in Chicago, IL and Los Angeles, CA, we offer a variety of photo booth rental enhancements to make the photo booth experience more fun and enjoyable.  One such enhancement is our green screen technology.

Magic Moment Photo Booth has carved out a niche in the open-air photo booth industry by the addition of green screen technology. This is the same technology that is used by weather forecasters in photo shoots for popular magazines, as well as in Hollywood movies.

Green screen technology works by taking a photo of the guest standing in front of a green backdrop. Depending on the photo layout, up to four different scenic photos can be pre-programmed. In one photo could be the famous Hollywood sign or Eiffel Tower, another could be an exotic beach.

Customers may choose from a variety of backgrounds from Magic Moment Photo Booth’s library of photos or in limited circumstances provide a photo of their own. At the event, the photo booth will be set up with the selected backgrounds. Before the photo is taken, guests stand in front of a green backdrop and can see themselves on the 20 inch monitor with the backgrounds displayed. Once the start button is pressed, the photo booth takes the pictures and the photos come out with the green backdrop replaced by the backgrounds selected. Seconds after the last picture is snapped, the photos print on a commercial-grade photo printer.

Magic Moment Photo Booth offers open air photo booths which are ideal for both large and small venues. As many as 12 people can fit in front of the booth and the professional grade equipment produces clear quality photo prints. Each rental always comes with a photo booth attendant and the company offers a variety of services in addition to green screen technology to enhance the photo booth rental experience.
