Being in the wedding business, you meet all sorts of innovative, creative people. For instance, check out photographer Thomas Marlow. Not only does he take brillant photos, but he offers a really cool service to brides all over the country (that means us too Western New Yorkers!).
Photo booths are making a comeback this year at wedding receptions, and Tom has taken this fun concept a step further. He helps couples custom-design a large, modular photo booth unique to every wedding. In his own words: "Every background is different and none are repeated. I have a consultation with the bride and groom and ask them a number of questions about their life together and things that inspire them. I show them art books, design books, architectural books, as well as find out their favorite movies from a visual standpoint and various other things like the color palette of their wedding, does it have a theme, etc. This information in-turn provides me inspiration to come up with a design. The design is fleshed out in a 3D modeling software and the production of the set-design begins." Check out these amazing photobooth sets!
Your guests hold a remote trigger for the camera, having complete control over the photo-taking process. There is also an LCD moniter right there so everyone can see their photos as they are taken. Tom makes the photos available for purchase on his website, or you can have unlimited 4x6's right at your reception for an additional fee. This is SUCH a fun, cool idea- check out Tom's website to contact him!
