Video Booth, Now Available!

Hey. It’s busy season… but we missed you, photo booth fans. So even if we’re quiet in blog-land just know it’s because we’re hustling to create the best photo booth experiences you’ve ever seen at an event. And in our downtime (lol “downtime”) we’re developing brand new photo ops, so I thought I’d fill you in on one new service we just rolled out: video!

Video Booth

Video can now be seamlessly added to an event. This service works best with a concept in mind since it is fully customizable. Recently tested at a bridal show, we decided a fun 1920’s motif would be a great way to demonstrate this. The overlay, the video effects and the music can all be created to match your vision. The best part is this function works just as intuitively as our normal photo booth, and guests can still text and email themselves the digital file for easy social sharing! Imagine after your event, receiving the hilarious gallery of your family and friends goofing off to music.

Can you imagine the possibilities for customization? You could pick an era like we did, such as 1980’s or imagine your own futuristic world. If there is a theme for your event, as always, we love incorporating your vision into the booth. Do you and your beloved have a special song? Let’s use it for your wedding booth! Want to create a throwback superhero movie a la 1950’s? Let’s do it! Want to create short horror movies for your next Halloween party? I’m mad you didn’t already tell me about your Halloween party, it sounds legit. Dibs on the Godzilla costume.

Check out some cute videos we created with this new service, fit for a party with Gatsby.

 

If you have an event coming up and would like to add a video booth for extra fun, feel free to contact your local office if you have any questions or would like to make a reservation. For more updates and information, you can visit our Instagram or like us on Facebook.

Make The Most Of Your Outdoor Photo Booth

Make The Most Of Your Outdoor Photo Booth

Now that the weather is warming up we are ready and excited for all of the outdoor events we have coming up! We have done many outdoor events in the past that have taken advantage of the outdoor scenery around the event. Here are just a few of the outdoor events we have done, and some ideas of what you could do!

1. The Fence

Some of our clients chose to have their outside photos taken in front of a fence.  These photos can turn out quite lovely! The decision to pose in front of a fence may have been made if that’s where the closest outlet was, or if it is the best background option available.  A fence can create a very nice aesthetic and a vintage look.

2. The Mountains

There are some outside locations that are just absolutely beautiful, and they end up adding so much to the photos.  Take, for instance, these photos from an outdoor photo booth event in Utah.  The backdrop is just stunning, as it features the mountains of Provoand bright green grass.  The day was beautiful, and the lighting was consistent throughout our time at the event.

3. The City

An added benefit of an outside photo booth is that it can be used as a way for your guests to remember where your event was held and other specific memories from that day.  We were a part of an event held in Columbus that highlighted the beautiful city.

4. The Green Screen

If you are enjoying these beautiful outdoor photos but are nervous about the weather (cough, Cincinnati, Boston, Toledo… since it can be beautiful one moment and thunder storms the next) you also have the option of choosing an outdoor green screen effect, such as this tropical scene.

If you have an outside (or inside!) event coming up and would like to feature a photo booth feel free to contact us at your nearest location if you have any questions or would like to make a reservation.  For more information and updates, you can find us on Instagram or like us on Facebook.

7 Reasons A Photo Booth Belongs At Your Prom

7 Reasons A Photo Booth Belongs At Your Prom

Prom season is coming upon us and we are already booking schools! We at Clear Choice Photo Booth are so excited for prom season and being a part of an important celebration. A photo booth is perfect for prom as it is a way to capture memories and fun moments! Not only will students walk away with a photo strip (as pointed out below) but all of the photos will be online (unless otherwise arranged by your supervisor)! Below are some more benefits of hiring us for your prom!

1. Custom photo strip design to reflect dance theme and/or school spirit.

Custom Prom Photo Strip

We custom design all photo strips. Whether it is using a certain color combination to represent the school’s colors or using the prom’s theme to inspire the design or both! We encourage everyone to add some customization to their photo strips so it stands out. This makes for a great way to remember a fun event.

2. Provides a fun keepsake to remember the night.

Photo Booth Fun

We’ve all seen the classic prom photographs that used to be all the rage back in the ’80s and ’90s. A stiff pose with an awkward smile, highlighting any acne and nervousness. It’s now 2019 and we have done away with such a boring and old fashioned type of photograph. Students can gather their date or a whole group of friends into the photo booth, grab some props and the fun begins! Within a minute, the photos are printed and can be used to remember an important milestonein one’s high school career.

3. Teachers can have fun too!

Prom Photo With Your Favorite Teacher

Never forget that teachers are real humans too. Believe it or not they like to have fun and create a good time for themselves. Chances are they’ll want to hop in the photo booth, pick out a prop or two and have some fun making crazy faces for the camera.

4. Props can be used to add to the fun.

Everyone loves the props that we provide with certain packages (or they can be order a la carte). It adds to the excitement of a photo booth and allows for so much fun. We have a large variety of props including signs with hilarious statements, mustaches and lip son a stick, and super-sized sunglasses, among a ton of other kinds.

4. The attendant does all the work, not the students or the chaperones.

Clear Choice Photo Booth Set-Up

We set up two hours before the event, run the photo booth, and then take it down when the time comes. We don’t need help from the chaperones, the students don’t have to do anything except hop inside to have some fun, and everyone is happy while keeping their focus on what is most important.

5. Keeps the party going, even when a dance break is needed.

Dancing takes up a lot of energy, and every once in awhile a student might need to take a small break to refresh themselves. Instead of having the students relax at a table, you can encourage them to have some fun at the photo booth. This provides a chance for them to catch their breath, while still keeping the energy up and the fun at high levels.

7. All photos are available to view online the next day.

Online Photos

All of the photos taken from the event will be available to view online the following day. It’s almost like logging onto Facebook to see a new photo album posted, but even better because we put all of the photos online. It’s fun to see how much fun everyone had, and how crazy they got!

If you have a prom coming up and would like to add a photo booth for extra fun, feel free to contact your local office if you have any questions or would like to make a reservation. For more updates and information, you can visit our Instagram or like us on Facebook.

5 Ways To Enhance Your Wedding  Photo Booth

5 Ways To Enhance Your Wedding Photo Booth

As photo booths are becoming more and more popular at weddings, there are many way to make your guests’ photo booth experiences stand out. We at Clear Choice Photo Booth love discovering new ways to highlight our services and make sure that you have the best experience possible! We have put together some ideas to make sure that your photo booth rental offers the best for your guests.

1. Choose the prints per person option

Here at Clear Choice Photo Booth we have several packages for brides to choose from for their big day. For weddings, our social media package is our most popular. Not only does it supply a guest book for the bride and groom to take home, but it will print a photo strip for every single person in the photo booth. So if ten people go into the photo booth, eleven strips will be printed out (one for each person, and one for the guest book).

2. Offer “tickets” to the photo booth

Another option is to offer tickets to your photo booth. Guests will feel they are given a great opportunity to use the photo booth. This would be especially beneficial if you have a large amount of wedding guests, as you could control the number of times each person enters the booth.

3. Use frames as a seating chart

If you would like to supply your guests with frames, you could also use the inserts as a seating chart. Each insert could contain the guest name and the table number, as well as an invitation to use the photo booth (as mentioned above). This is a great idea if you are looking to save money and “hit two birds with one stone” using your photo booth frames.

4. Use frames at each place setting

Many brides choose to supply their guests with frames to hold their photo strips. But what do you put in the frame before they receive their photos? A short thank you and an invitation to have fun at the booth. Not only does this let everyone know that there is a photo booth, but it allows the guests to go home with a reminder, in other words, a wedding favor.

5. Encourage fun at the booth

Hang signs, give directions, do everything you can to encourage your guests to have fun at the photo booth! The most important thing is that your guests walk away with a smile on their face, a photo in their hand, and a memory at they will cherish forever!I

f you are searching for a professional and fun photo booth rental that you would love to use for your wedding favor, you have found your match! Not only do we offer frames and inserts for this very reason, but we have several packages built for brides. We invite you to contact your local office to speak with us directly. For more updates and information, you can find us on Instagram and Facebook.

DIY Photo Booth vs. Clear Choice Photo Booth

So you have a wedding coming up and you are looking to save some money, you decide it would be more financially responsible to create a DIY photo booth instead of renting one. Seems like a good idea, right? Not so fast! It’s important to think about what a photo booth from Clear Choice Photo Booth has to offer. It’s not just the photo booth: we can provide a stress free experience for both you and your guests, a scrapbook that you can take home that night and an experience that you will always cherish! And don’t forget that your photo strips get printed out right there, on the spot! So before you decide that saving a few dollars might be worth it, check out the reasons below why it might be best to rent a photo booth!

You have to provide, or make your own probs

vs.

We provide a ton of props for you

Don’t have any crazy, large glasses laying around? No fun mustaches or lips on a stick? How about some fun digital probs for your guests to use? No? What about fun signs to hold up that will make your guests enjoy their photo booth experience even more? Looks like you’re going to be spending extra money (and time if you decide to DIY) on some props for your guests. Whereas, most of our photo booth packages come with our own set of high quality props, including those large glasses, tons of signs, sturdy mustaches and lips on a stick, fun super hero masks, stunner shades, fun digital probs and more.Of course you can add any of your own props onto our prop table, but we supply plenty!

If something malfunctions, you have to fix it

vs.

We are always there to make sure things run smoothly

Oh no! Is that your background blowing away in the wind? Are those storm clouds? Did your camera flash break? Think about how we would have been able to help if you had hired Clear Choice Photo Booth. Although issues for us are very rare, when they do come up all of our attendants are trained to handle issues quickly and efficiently. Rain clouds while we’re set up outside? No problem, we’ll find a place indoors and relocate within minutes.

So you want a scrapbook…?

vs.

We can provide you with a scrapbook by the end of the night

One of the most exciting parts of a photo booth rental is the creation and presentation of a scrapbook at the end of the night. This is a book full of photos and messages from your guests to you. It is one of our most desired products and is included in most of our packages. We’re not really sure how a DIYer could pull this off, so if you’ve done it before please let us know! However, we wanted to share this extra piece of information with you in case you were considering making your own booth. It’s just one more thing to consider!

um, how are we going to get all the pictures?

vs.

We will upload all of your pictures the next business day

If you’re DIYing your photo booth you have a lot to think about… Like how are you going to get the photos? Will you ask people to post them online with a #thebigparty14, hoping everyone has a smart phone and remembers to attach the hashtag? Will you leave out your $500 camera so you have access to them all later? (Dangerous!) Or will you provide disposables, praying the photos come out when you eventually decide to develop them? When you hire Clear Choice Photo Booth, whether or not you’ve ordered a scrapbook or not. All of your photos will be online for you and your guests to access the very next day. With online access, you and your guests will be able to view, print and download as many photos as you want!

Your friends have to take your photo

vs.

We take your photo

Most DIYers do a great job saving money: they only get what they need. Or what they think they need. DIYers are probably not going to outsource a photographer to take photos of guests at their event, leaving either themselves, a guest, or a potential guest to take the photos. If that’s the case, then someone is going to feel left out…When you hire Clear Choice Photo Booth, your rental comes with an attendant who not only sets up our professional photo booth, but mans it so that your guests can have fun taking as many photos of themselves as you want. (Plus your guests will get to watch themselves through our screen inside the booth!)

Unless you have your clunky printer set up, there will be no printed photos

vs.

We give your guests a copy of their photos within 60 seconds of their session

If you are considering a DIY photo booth, have you thought of how you will print photos for your guests to take home? Will you buy a few extra cords to connect your printer to your camera? What happens if you run out of ink? Or paper? This is something to seriously consider if your debating on whether to DIY your photo booth. Clear Choice Photo Booth rentals come with a high quality printer that prints within 60 seconds. Double prints are included in every package, with an a la carte option of prints for everyone. Plus, you get to choose your custom design that shows up on every photo strip, featuring whatever colors and texts you want! You don’t want to deny your guests a fun party favor to take home, do you?

If we have convinced you that a DIY photo booth might not be the way to go, then feel free to contact us if you have any questions or to reserve your event. For more updates and information, you can find us on Instagram and like us on Facebook.
