Photoworks was recommended to us by our wedding coordinator, Crystal Lequang of Amazae Special Events. They allowed us to customize not only the background print (colors and logos) but also how many sets of pictures printed on one sheet - we had 4 poses printed on one sheet, three times. That way they guests can leave one strip for us, share one strip with another party, and keep one for themselves. They also accommodated us with a specific back drop curtain color for the booth - we requested brown (I think their standard is red). They provided props and the pictures printed out within seconds. They also encouraged people to use props and come back to take pictures more than once.
Lastly - the scrapbooking ... they had two people manning the booth at all times. They gave scrapbooking tips and when they had down time, they scrapbooked pages for us! The next morning, we went to the venue to pick up our things, and to our surprise, the beautiful and completed leather scrapbook was already there with all the digitals of the pictures attached on a USB key ring. It was super fun to have goofy pictures of all our guests the day after the wedding. Now that's instant gratification! Thank you Photoworks!
Vendor response to review
No thank you for your business and this great review. Its always nice to hear how much our brides and grooms liked our service. We always have a wonderful time, and love what we do.
Incredible. We are so happy we did this. It was the most memorable part of our wedding. We had our scrapbook the next day and our photo cd in just a couple weeks. Everyone is still talking about our photo booth.
We looked at several different photobooths, and actually booked another less expensive one, but we saw Photoworks at a bridal show and really liked the way the photos turned out and how the booth was set up. There are 6 pictures on each strip and you can even custom design what is in the middle. We put our initials and the date of our wedding and added a personalized graphic. It made for a very nice memento.
The photobooth came staffed with 2 people so that one could help people take the photos, and the other could staff the scrapbook table and show people how to do that. The downside is that you have to pay for 2 dinners. The upside is that there was not much of a line because they were moving people through quickly, and the scrapbook turned out amazing! They provide the book, scissors, stickers, pens, etc. The great part is that you get the finished scrapbook immediately. It's a nice thing to look thru right after the wedding.
And the other plus is, when we came home from our honeymoon, they had sent us a CD with ALL the pictures that were taken that night. High resolution images of the 6 picture strips, plus each individual picture. We ended up printing copies for people who left their pics in the scrapbook. Everyone from flower girls to grandma to drunk friends took a turn.
They all raved about the photobooth and thought it was the best idea ever.
The only complaint I would make is that we sent them our personalized graphic a month before the wedding, and after numerous emails and phone calls, we still didn't get a final proof of what it would look like until a couple days before the wedding, which was a little bit of a headache. But, it ended up really turning out great.
The whole thing was definitely pricey at $2165 total, but in the end, really worth it because of how well it all turned out and what a huge hit it was with everyone.
This was the hit of the party. People were lined up all night, and we had them take a strip home as a favor and leave a strip with us that was mounted in a guest book. The guest book is AWESOME. They take care of everything during the event, including guest book and supplies, so you don't have to keep track of them at all. It's pretty expensive ($1650, I think), but I'm super happy with the way it worked out.
We had several super-cute strips from our 6-yr old niece, and some really cool stuff from our friends. One of my favorite pages is from a friend who got really drunk and wrote a very memorable page (it ended "P.S. Thanks for the open bar!" - my wife didn't think it was nearly as funny as I did.)
We had our wedding in September 2006 at the Sheraton Delfina in Santa Monica.
