The Photo Booth is a Big Hit

This past weekend the Photo Booth was in full swing.  Everyone was having lots of fun making their own pictures and getting to show them off right after they were taken.  Several people also asked about ordering prints and enlargements that were taken during their photo booth session.  It was such an exciting experience.  I love how it creates the excitement of the guests and gets them mingling with each other.  I am sure more people will be taking advantage of the photo booth once they learn about it. If you look at the example image above, you will see that there are actually 2 photo strips that are produced from each photo booth session.  This photo booth was in coordination with my husband’s DJ service, so that is why it says at the bottom of these strips.  So of course it goes without saying, if you need a great DJ for your event, I have connections.  :)

Tony Gonzalez Shop With A Jock 2010

This time last night we were at the Walmart in Cumming, GA taking photos of the kids shopping with the football players from the Atlanta Falcons team.  The Atlanta Union Mission sent out around 50 children and Walmart gave each child a $100 Gift Card to spend on anything they wanted.  Several of the kids came to check out with new bikes and all kinds of fun stuff.  They really enjoyed shopping.  Us grown ups had fun too.  I was contacted about providing each of the kids with a photo from the event to take home with them.  I had some awesome help, which was much needed especially when the kids came to check out with much enthusiasm.  I quickly noticed a lot of Walmart shoppers buying footballs to collect autographs.  :)  I shared some of the photos on facebook and I noticed Tony Gonzalez added one of them to his own album on the page.

Atlanta Photo Booth Services

I have been working on getting the Photo Booth up and running to provide service for events and weddings for people who would like to have a photo booth where guests can do a sequence of images and also to have an instant photo strip to enjoy immediately.  I have it set up where each photo sequence gives you TWO photo strips of each sequence.  The idea here is you the host get to determine if you would like to keep a copy for yourself or give both copies to your guest(s).  What a lot of people like to do is provide a scrapbook, glue sticks, pens, etc. to allow your guests to place your 2nd copy that you keep into a book and sign it or write you a note....  a perfect idea for weddings!  We remain in the photo booth assisting, managing and encouraging your guests to participate.  We provide you with the props and plenty of enthusiasm.  We make sure everything is running smoothly and keep things moving along.  Oh and you can specify what you want at the top of the photo strips, it could be your name(s), date, special message, a company logo... almost anything.  And if you are going to keep a copy of the strips, your half could be blank or say something else...  allowing you to totally customize your photo booth.  You can also supply additional props or a special background if you like.  Once someone does their photo sequence (4 poses), then in less than 1 minute, the photo strips print out.  They measure 2 inches by 6 inches each strip.

Bridal Portfolio Photo Shoot

We had a super fun bridal portfolio shoot - 3 gorgegous models - designer wedding gowns - hair and make up artists - wonderful lighting set ups and an awesome wedding venue that is a renovated Victorian home in Kennesaw Georgia. It was raining out, so we kept everything inside of the house which is fine since it was hot and humid outside. In case you are wondering, I am fully capable of setting up similar lighting set ups on location if time and space permits for your session. As you can see, if you schedule enough time for your photography, you can get some really nice images.  When planning your session or wedding day, discuss with me what is important to you.  Now of course if all you want is documentary type coverage, then none of that applies and we just capture the real moments as they happen.  I do highly encourage you to at least give up some time for good images though because those are the ones that will end up on your wall and definitely in your coffee table book, maybe even on the cover of your book.

Another Atlanta Botanical Garden Event

This time it was a much bigger affair than the other time I photographed at the Atlanta Botanical Garden and it is pretty much the exact opposite time of the year.  The gardens were in full bloom being it is July.  We were in Day Hall for a wedding reception in the evening time.  It's a lovely venue that is very versatile.

Recent Shoots

I have been doing a few shoots recently that are not necessarily wedding related, but in a round about way they are.  My husband was the DJ/Emcee for this couple's wedding at the start of last year.  I made arrangements with them to do their pregnancy and newborn photo sessions.  And wouldn't you know it, this beautiful little baby girl was born on their first wedding anniversary.

Pregnancy Portraits... Something New

I had an opportunity to do some pregnancy / maternity portraits and we had a lot of fun with the session.  I enjoyed editing these images too.  I am sure I will be doing more of these sessions.
