Slow Motion Video Booths Are The Best New Wedding Trend

Monday, May 12th, 2014

Slow motion photo booth chicago

It’s official: We are totally and completely obsessed with slow-motion video booths.

Sure, photo booths are great and who doesn’t love hanging those cute, little picture strips on the fridge? But the slow-motion video booth is way more dynamic, allowing guests to be a lot more creative (Be honest: How many times have you done the obligatory “Charlie’s Angels” photo booth pose?) and frankly, looks like a lot more fun!

With Magic Moment Photo Booth Slow motion booths. The strips still print out and you get the best of both worlds combined. Chicago, Madison, and Los Angeles

Man Who Took 445 Photo-Booth Self-Portraits Over 30 Years

Monday, April 14th, 2014

The man sat down in the booth, pulled the curtain shut, posed, and waited for the click. He repeated the process at least 445 times over the course of 30 years, from the time of the Great Depression well into the 1960s.

Now, his impressive collection of photobooth snaps is unveiled for the first time at the Zimmerli Art Museum at Rutgers, as part of “Striking Resemblance: The Changing Art of Portraiture,” an exhibition on display through July.

Don Lokuta, a photography historian, stumbled on these images at an antiques show in New York in 2012. When the dealer told him there were hundreds more like them, he was stunned. “I knew this was very rare, but on a deeper level, I wondered, ‘Why would somebody want to take almost 500 photos of himself in a photobooth?’ he told Rutgers in an interview.

The snapshots themselves, seen as a collection, are startling: the same face etched into the silver gelatin prints over and over again. Sometimes he’s smiling, at times he looks stern, pensive, or inquisitive. These images force the viewer to seek out the minute differences in his expressions and aging appearance—the evolution from dark, slicked-back hair to a grayish white.

The leading theory behind the photos is that this man was testing the photobooth equipment after repairing it, a narrative similar to that of of Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s delightful Amélie. In the film, photobooths play a central role in bringing together the shy waitress and her quirky prince, who happens to collect discarded photobooth photos. One man in particular resurfaces time and time again in the pictures. Unlike the film, however, this ostensible repairman kept the evidence of his tests.

In the early stages of putting this exhibit together, Lokuta approached photobooth historian Näkki Goranin, who as it turned out, had photos of the same man. They tracked the man to Michigan, where the images first appeared at an auction, but there the trail grew cold.

Donna Gustafson, the curator of the Zimmerli exhibit hopes it will bring to light more information on this mysterious man. She adds, “if it is true that this was a man just doing his job, he ended up creating something extraordinary.”

Photo Booth Rentals: Tips for Reserving a Photo Booth for your Next Event

Saturday, November 2nd, 2013

Photo booth rentals are great for all kinds of events from a birthday party , to a wedding, and corporate function just to name a few. Weddings are the most popular setting for a photo booth rental and a top entertainment feature for guests. Ultimately though if you are having any kind of party (whether big or small) a photo booth rental will make your guests happy and have them thanking you for a memorable party.

Here are some great general tips to take into mind when you are planning your next event and want to incorporate a photo booth rental for the party.

1) Make sure you have your date picked out before you apply for pricing. This will help you get the best price as possible.

2) What is your guest count?Having a very large party?You will want more hours of service so more guests can experience the photo booth.

3) If you are having a wedding then your photo booth rental should include a scrap book which is made on site with photos from the photo booth. This is an extra charge option for a large majority of photo booth service businesses.

4) Props are a whole lot of fun and enhance the photography in the photo booth. 😛 Even grandma will try them on and have a laugh!

5) The new trend in photo booths is the group style booth: the more guests you can fit in the photo booth,the more fun your guest will have.

6) The traditional sized print for a photo booth is 2 x 6 inches. If the business does not offer this then they are not a true photo booth rental business.

7) Stay clear of online group style deals:often clients are cancelled on at the last minute. Go with an experienced company that won’t cancel on you in the last minute.

8) When renting a photo booth make sure you have enough space for the booth.If you have a large guest list then odds are you will have a line for the photo booth and there needs to be space for this.

9) Photo booths are great for weddings, bar/t mitzvahs, sweet 16/15’s,retirement parties, tailgate parties, corporate functions, trade shows, & birthday parties just to name a few.

10) Lastly do your research and make sure the business you are working with is an experienced business with great reviews.

Bridal Show Chicago Photo Booth

Monday, March 25th, 2013

Today Magic Moment Photo Booth was at the Chicago Bridal show at the Westin Michigan Avenue.  The turn out was amazing and it was the best show we have been to and yet to do.  The atmosphere and the vibe of all the guests and vendors was amazing.  We had a great time communicating with prospective clients and explaining our photo booths and services and how they are different/better from the rest of the competition out there.  We had our big party booth which is the biggest in chicago.  It has a real photo both enclosure and is wider and longer than any other booth out there on the market.  Not only is it bigger, but it has a better build quality than (tent photobooths) and uses professional grade material to make it fit in with the decor of your event.  We heard guests say that our photo booth was the best and same with the props.

It truly makes us happy with the level of AMAZING feedback we got from everyone.  This is why we are in business!  We are/and we want to remain the BEST Photo Booth company in Chicago and are expanding into the L.A. market to provide amazing and unique experiences there as well.

We would like to thank everyone who came out and enjoyed their Sunday at the Bridal Expo and with us.  We look forward  to doing many bridal expos in the future as well.  So if you are looking for an amazing photo booth vendor in the chicago area that truly cares about your special day and will go the extra distance for you then look no further! #MagicMomentPhotoBooth
