Chapter 1: No Credit, No Problem
No one really knows when the first photo booth was used at a social event. There are several stories online from competitors who claim to have been the first. But their claim is questionable because we saw the use of a photo booth at a social event several years BEFORE the earliest year we saw cited on the web. We certainly weren’t the first, but we would like to tell you how we got to where we are today.
Chapter 2: In the Beginning
In early 2005, my friend and I were working as wedding photographers at a wedding in South Beach. During the reception, we learned that the bride and groom had booked a photo booth for their wedding. This was unheard of in 2005. Moreover, it was a massive commercial mall type booth constructed of solid metal. It must have weighed over 1000 pounds! Realizing the potential, we told ourselves: “Wow! What a great idea! Why hadn’t anyone thought of this sooner?” The wedding guests couldn’t get enough of the photo booth. As word and prints got around, a long line formed to use the booth, and it never letup.
Later, we found out from the wedding planner that the booth was so heavy that it was delivered using a truck with a liftgate! Transporting it was clearly a logistical challenge.
Chapter 3: Monkey See, Monkey Do Better
“We can do this better,” we thought. So we headed back to our studio and did some research. We were able to find a machinist in South Carolina who had already started tinkering with the concept of a “mobile” photo booth. Before the end of 2005, we had our first mobile photo booth: the Party Classic! We started offering it as an add-on to our wedding photography services. It gained so much popularity that we ordered more of them and dedicated ourselves primarily to photo booth rental. Miami Photo Booth Party was born, and the rest, as they say, is history.
Chapter 4: Today, Tomorrow, & Beyond
Since then, the photo booth rental industry exploded in popularity. You can now find photo booths in all shapes and sizes. In fact, with current technologies, most look nothing like the original mall photo booth we saw in 2005.
Today, Miami Photo Booth Party is a well recognized and respected photo booth rental company in South Florida. We have remained local and private and can manage any type of social event. While wedding couples and birthday hosts have been very happy with our services, admittedly, corporate events are our favorite because they are our most challenging. We have proudly serviced large corporations such as Telemundo, Coca Cola, Carnival Cruises, the Miami Dolphins and many more.
