Peggy’s 60th Birthday Party, Beach Harbor Club, Longboat Key, FL

We absolutely love Longboat Key but this was the first time I have been to the Beach Harbor Club on Longboat Key, and I’ll be honest, I drove past it about three times before I found it. Big thanks to Meg and her remote GPS locating, lol. Another reason we arrive at events early for set ups.

We were excited when we got the call for Peggy’s 60th Birthday, who doesn’t love a surprise birthday party? Peggy got quite the treat when she arrived at the Beach Club. Jenn had gone above and beyond to make Peggy’s special day one to remember. Surrounded by amazing friends, lots of love, some killer catering and a live band, great times were had.

Jenn chose our Open Air Photo Booth for Peggy’s birthday celebration and paired it with one of our brand new pillowcase backgrounds. With our beauty dish lighting and Canon DSLR camera we are basically a mobile professional photography studio… with instant print options! The lighting is just amazing and creates stunning portraits!

Bowties and Bourdon, Pinot and Pearls, Venice Golf and Country Club, Venice, FL

Another trip back to Venice Golf and Country Club! This time we were called in to help celebrate their Bourben and Bowties, Pinot and Pearls Event, a sophishisticated yet casual evening of tastes and toasts for a cause… The Foundation Grant Program!

We had a blast working with these guys, as we always do when visiting the VGCC. They chose our Open Air Photo Booth and paired it with one of our brand new pillowcase back drops! We just LOVE the combo! In fact, we just got a whole bunch of new back grounds so stay tuned.

Being a fundraiser, our goal was to help raise money, so we paired with the great folks at Cool Pool Pros, a fellow family owned local business servicing both Sarasota and Charlotte Counties to help guests create some lasting fun memories of an amazing evening.

We are already looking forward to next year!

Chris and Anna’s Wedding, Carmelo’s Restaurant, Punta Gorda, FL

We were working double duty on this event. Chris and Anna called us up looking for an unforgettable Photo Booth experience. They also took advantage of our roaming photography add on. Yes, that’s right, we are also professional photographers. We are your one stop photo solutions!

Originally scheduled to be at a very special backyard venue on Siesta Key, Chris and Anna had to make some last minute changes and changed the reception venue to Carmelo’s of Punta Gorda! Although, we always look forward to a trip to Siesta Key, Carmelo’s Italian Restaurant is the best! Great location, just over the Barron Collier Bridge. Carmelo’s offer a wide-range of authentic Italian options. Whether you choose your favorite Italian dish or try something new, you won’t be disappointed! From lunch and dinner to catered events, Carmelo’s offer traditional Italian favorites as well as some old family Sicilian recipes. Beautiful indoor dining and they can host all sorts of events outside on the patio.

Chris and Anna chose wisely and went with the Patio setting. They selected our Open Air Lollipop Mirror Photo Booth and paired it with out Gold Sequin Backdrop for the ultimate Glam Style Portraits! 4×6 postcard prints and animated GIF’s sent to each guests phone were the hit of the reception. Not too mention our stellar prop game! This crew was so much fun to work with and Anna gets the GOLD STAR for being the Photo Booth MVP of the evening! Well done. Some people are just born for the Photo Booth!

Mike and Marta’s Wedding – Charlotte Harbor Yacht Club, Port Charlotte, FL

Looking for a venue to host your next event? Look no further! The Charlotte Harbor Yacht Club can handle all your needs. They also boast one of the finest kitchens in Charlotte County! Which, we can happily confirm, is legit!

Mike and Marta chose this beautiful venue to tie the knot and we couldn’t have been happier that they chose us to help celebrate their special day by creating an unforgettable Photo booth experience for them and their guests.

We originally met Mike and Marta at the Southwest Wedding and Event Expo in Punta Gorda and had an immediate connection. They loved our Open Air Lollipop Mirror Booth and paired it with our Silver Sequin Backdrop. They chose the 3 hour package that came with a photo strip guest book that we put together for them. We just love putting the albums together. After each session, we print out one extra photo strip and put into a photo album. We then, have each guest sign the book throughout the evening. It comes out beautifully and the best part is that we hand it right to the bride at the end of the evening so they have something to take home. Marta was so excited to take the book home and look through their guests sessions and messages.

Their amazing cake was created by Lynn at Cake Concepts out of Port Charlotte.

Hair and Make up was done by the great folks at D’vina’s Salon in North Port.

Xpertech Business Card Exchange Event, Englewood, FL

Our first event of 2020! Big things planned for 2020 and we couldn’t be more excited to kick off our 2020 season with our good friends a Xpertech Auto Repair. This time around, Kathleen is hosting the local Englewood Chamber Business Card Exchange Event for all the local business people to meet, mingle and exchange ideads and services. So much fun. Great music, great food and lots and lots of prizes!

We set up our LED Inflatable Booth enclosure with our Open Air Lollipop Mirror Booth for the ultimate WOW factor. She is truly a sight to behold when all lit up and ready to party. Our prop game was on point and our super slick dye sublimation printer was dishing out 4×6 postcard prints to everyone that stepped inside the party cube. Guests also were treated to Animated GIF’s sent to their phone after each session for instant social sharing. Want to elevate your next event? Call us!

NYE Celebration at the Hotel Venezia, Venice, FL

We just love our good friends over at Hotel Venezia! This place is like home to us getting to spend our NYE together there is special for us.

Their NYE celebration is so well done, with an amazing DJ, a live singer, open bar, delicious food prepared by the Venezia Restaurant, and, of course, us, great times are guaranteed! Not to mention you get a hotel room included with your admission, so no need to hold back.

We brought our Open Air Lollipop Mirror Photo Booth with our gorgeous gold sequin background. Such a beautiful set up. This is our second event with our new lighting rig. Photo Quality is so important to us, that no matter how good it already is, we are constantly trying to add new elements to keep up with the latest trends. Our newest addition? The beauty dish! The light created is between that of a direct flash and a softbox, giving the image a wrapped, contrasted look, which adds a more dramatic effect. We just love it!

Each guests walked away from their photo booth experience with a 4×6 premium postcard in hand, and an amazing GIF sent to their phone. It was good to see so many returning faces this year, we are so looking forward to the next one!!!

Tory and Meaghan's 40th Birthday Party – The Pink Cottage, Boca Grande, FL

Another call back to The Pink Cottage on Boca Grande… Yes please! We never turn down a trip to Boca. This time around, Regina called us up to help her daughter, Tory, and long time best friend, Meaghan celebrate a very big birthday together! Good times for sure. They switched it up this time and chose the LED Inflatable Booth enclosure with our Open Air Lollipop Mirror Booth to help light up the party. It did not disappoint, and not a single neighbor walked by without popping in to see what was going on in the giant inflatable party cube. We kept it simple on the photo strip design and went with 2×6 photo strips on a pink background.

The Party was catered by Newlin’s on 4th Street! Amazing food, amazing people, highly recommended!!!

Elmcroft of Bella Vita Holiday Party – Venice, FL

You’ll have to excuse us for this one, but we still have a few awesome events we want to share from 2019! This one was from the Elmcroft of Bella Vita Holiday Party in Venice. This was the second event we worked with Bella Vita this year. These girls are super fun and we love the work they do there. So, we want to give the entire Bella Vita crew a huge shout out for what they do. Let’s face it, it’s not an easy job but the Bella Vita crew is literally changing lives and making our love ones as comfortable as they can be. So much love! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

J2 Construction Holiday Party – Zota Beach Resort, Longboat Key, FL

We originally met the J2 crew over the summer when they hired us to photograph their company picnic at Sharkey’s. We had such a wonderful time and we just love what these guys do. Not you average construction company. We met up with J2 Solutions again this year for their annual holiday party at Zota Beach Resort. They paired our event photography with one of our glamorous open air photo booths to make sure no moments were missed. What a stunning resort to hold your event at. Located on Longboat Key, the high ceiling ballroom was so elegant I cant believe this is the first time we worked this Venue, but certainly not the last! The drinks were flowing & the dance floor was bumping thanks to an amazing DJ. We met Luke of Stultz Entertainment Group and are stoked at the possibility of joining forces to make a powerhouse entertainment rental team. Stay Tuned for more on that in the near future…

Waverly and BRWB Holiday Party – The Waverly, Englewood, FL

We love when we get a call from The Waverly Resteraunt & Bar. We were lucky enough to be there for the 2019 Holiday Party with their sister restaurant Beach Road Wine Bistro. If you need notes on how to throw a party just ask these guys. Both venues are located right on the water in Englewood Fl.
