Photo-matica Photo Booth Co.
If we could give more stars, we would. Doug and Matt with Photo-matica were professional from the get-go. As we had a million things going on with planning our wedding, the two gave us one less thing to worry about as their responsiveness to our questions, as well as follow ups and reminders let us know we hired the right company for the job.
Due to the usual bride/groom duties, we weren't able to keep our eye on everything that was going on. As far as the photo booth was concerned, we didn't need to. We had so many of our guests let us know personally how great Doug was. He was professional, cordial, enthusiastic, and in the brief time we talked, a great guy. If it means anything, I (the groom), have never written any type of review for anything or anyone. Hire these guys and you won't go wrong!
We wanted to have a photo booth for our wedding, and after some online research and emailing various vendors we settled on Photo-matica. We couldn't have been happier with our choice! Doug and Matt were extremely helpful, nice, and easy to work with leading up to the wedding, and the photo booth was a huge hit at the reception. After the big day, they mailed us a DVD of all the pictures that were taken and post them online so we can share the link with anyone else.
Everything obviously worked out great, but I want to make a special mention of the customer service we received. They were always very quick to respond to any questions or concerns we had, and at no point were we ever worried about anything to do with the photo booth. Given all the balls in the air with a wedding, not having to worry about any one aspect is very reassuring. Thanks!
Matt and Doug at Photo-Matica were amazing. They were extremely organized, professional, and FUN!! My guests and myself LOVED their awesome photo booth and all of the cool props that they brought. I can not say enough great things about how smooth the booking and planning with them went. Book Photo-Matica for your wedding or big event, you will not be disappointed!
Doug and Matt were a pleasure to work with! They made everything easy and were extremely flexible. The night of the event, they were professional and interacted really well with the guests. I definitely think that they are worth the price and would recommend them to others.
Doug and Photo-matica MADE my wedding!!! Of course, we tried to include the usual elements that make up a good wedding: touching vows, bumpin' dancefloor, good food, and, of course, open bar - but this photobooth gave us something special that the guests could participate in, leave us a nice keepsake in a scrapbook, and take something home.
I know that photobooths are really popular right now and vendors are fashioning their own variations on the traditional booth, but Doug's booth is truly special - it's a classy throwback to the old photobooths of our childhood, but with modern technology and excellent resolution on the pictures. It's all enclosed, making for a private area for you to feel really comfortable acting goofy and making great memories!
Oh, and did I mention the man is also artistic and will custom design you a little logo that comes printed on each of your photo strips? Plus he built this beautiful photobooth from the ground up...amazing! Not only is he responsible, punctual and reliable, but he's also a great guy to be around. We couldn't be happier with our choice!
Photo-matica is the future of photo boothing! Takes both color and black/white images, you get an immediate print, and then the shots are available online. There's a suitcase filled with costume parts. What's not to love?
Doug is awesome. Everyone at my wedding reception, including my husband + myself, reception loved him + the service he provided. He was personable, friendly, efficient, flexible + professional.
If I were to rent a photobooth for a future gig, I'd definitely hire Doug + would definitely refer him to friends + family.
Photo-matica, and Doug specifically, were really terrific to work with for my wedding. Communication during the lead-up to our wedding was clear and helpful, and Doug was such a nice guy, as well as very reliable and responsive, on the day of. The pictures turned out great -- we have the copies of prints of our guests framed on our wall -- and they were awesome and fun keepsakes for both the guests and for us. If I could go back, I would hire Doug and his booth again in a heartbeat.
this was one the best decisions we made for our wedding. everyone absolutely loved it, and doug was so accommodating and awesome!!! he brought props and maintained the photobooth and even stayed a little bit later because he saw how much everyone was enjoying it!!
we had a wedding of around 350 people, and he was able to make it work throughout the night with absolutely no problems. he was there the whole time to make sure nothing went wrong, and he was responsive from beginning to end!
when i wanted to stop by to check out the photobooth to make sure it was a good size and it would produce the right type of picture (and this was before i signed any contract), he invited me to his studio to check it out. he answered any and all questions that i had, showed me the props, explained how the photobooth worked, and worked with me on any concerns i had.
in the end, everything turned out so well. people enjoyed it, and the memories we have from the scrapbook people decorated with their strips is priceless.
Doug was awesome and so was his photo booth!
We loved all of the props to wear, and enjoyed looking thur the photo book at our guests pictures.
Some guests left the wedding without leaving us a photo from the booth, but Doug sent us a cd in the mail with ALL of the photos on it.
We would definately book another event with Doug in the future.
Thanks, Brenda Balthazor
These guys are amazing to work with, very professional, and very fun as well!!
Photo-matica Photo Booth Co., based in San Francisco, is a local, socially responsible company servicing all of Northern California. We rent our custom built, vintage inspired photo booths, using the best digital technology available, for weddings and other events.
It all started a few years back in San Francisco when Doug drummed up the idea of building an old school photo booth. His passion for all things old and rusty, love for photography, and dream of owning his own business all came to a head. And the Photo-matica photo booth was born. I guess you could say building a vintage inspired photo booth was in his blood.
As the word about the Photo-matica spread, he decided to ask me, Matt, to join the team. We ran track in college together and have known each other for 17 years now. As Doug would say, I’m more buttoned up than a pea coat, which means my job is to ensure that every detail is followed through to perfection. My passion is working with clients creating an unforgettable photo booth experience.
There is nothing else Doug or myself us would rather be doing. Our passion for photo booths, our clients, and spreading Photo-matica love is reflected in every one of our weddings. We would be happy to serve you!
