It’s common enough to see an automatic photo booth at weddings and events and they’ve proven to be very popular with all sorts of guests. It’s fun, entertaining , keeps them busy and amused during the evening reception and gives them a memento of the day.

There are limitations though: lighting is often front on and unflattering, props can get disorganised and sometimes you just need that human touch to get people posing and the photo party started.

The Party Studio brings all the fun of the photobooth with a studio style setup meaning great, fun, good quality photos and prints.

I can provide a variety of backdrops, or work with any background at your venue,  with off camera lighting with brollies and a variety of props so you and your guests get a high quality experience. The images are more dynamic and attractive, and you have the advantage of a photographer interacting with the guests – helping and encouraging them to pose and thinking of fun ways to get great photographs.

It’s more flexible as well. The style of images can vary depending on what you and your guests would prefer, from stylish, formal portraits to the most playful or crazy of memories, whatever will fit in best with your wedding or event.

I’ll also provide your guests with their favourite print on the night, and you’ll get a USB full of all the images. Plus a private gallery on my website that all the guests can access.

I call this the Party Studio, though you could also describe it as an open photobooth or a portable studio. It is markedly different from the usual contained, passport style booths and everyone can see what’s happening and get involved.

I can vary the width of the backdrop according to the amount of room available, or if space is really at a premium I can just bring lighting and props and use the room itself as the backdrop. This means you can still have those special images of your guests even if you can’t fit in a normal sized photo booth. I can also work with a backdrop that you provide, or with an event prop such as a Christmas Tree.

The Party Studio is ideal entertainment for wedding receptions, corporate events, works Christmas parties, New Year's Eve events, birthday parties, anniversary parties, bar mitzvahs and bat mitzvahs. It can make a great social media centrepoint for Trade Shows. Imagine fun images in front of your logo being shared to Instagram, Facebook and Twitter as your event is running.

I can be booked with the Party Studio as either an add on to your wedding or event, after the end of my usual coverage, or as a standalone activity for the evening.
