since first mentioning the possibility of an altmix photobooth- on twitter of course, the best tool for breaking news and immediate feedback ;) – we’ve received tons of encouragement as well as delighted inquiries from our lovely brides. adding something this huge to our business was a big dream– until now everything that has our name on it has been exclusively handled by one or both of us but we realized if we were going to do this thing right we were going to need help! we talked and talked and finally got up the nerve to buy the necessary equipment just a couple weeks before we were to run the booth for the first time at heather and matt’s wedding! thank you heather and matt for making things happen! everything arrived and we carefully set up the 9′ booth in our teeny living room- though we could no longer see out of any of our windows we were pumped to see the hours of talking and dreaming become a reality right before our eyes…literally, like, RIGHT in front of us.
so today, friends, we OFFICIALLY launch the altmix photobooth…or whatever more clever name we come up with in the next couple weeks…any ideas, please!? i know, i count on you for so much, but really, my pocket thesaurus did nothing for me when i looked up ‘photo’ and ‘booth.’ out of pure frustration i threatened to name it ‘image cubicle’ before i slowly put the thesaurus down, backed away and decided to ask you. TANGENT. anyway, without further babble, i present a few of our favorite images from the first altmix photobooth EVER:
heather just finished up her master’s and matt just finished up his doctorate so we thought books and mustaches were appropriate props to bring- pipe, glasses, birds and pearls completed the look :)
the groom and his mother- shouldn’t every mother/son portrait be this amazing!?
centerpieces make great props too…?!
remember how we said we needed help running this thing? well, thank goodness for crazy college friends! we were so thrilled to have steve and his lovely wife, katherine, along to run the booth and get everyone excited to jump in! they did an amazing job! …and while big things like the cake cutting were happening, they enjoyed the booth themselves- meet steve:
i tackled a straight minute of repeatedly jumping as high as i could to get a picture where the bottom of my feet are in the shot and surprise! no luck. BUT, one of heather’s bridesmaids is a cheerleading coach so i called her over and she helped my dreams come true! isn’t she awesome!?
what do you do when all of your friends steal the props? pull out a dollar, of course:
soooo….what do you think!? :)
