The Bow-tie Booth and the Video Booth
I've already got a photographer and videographer, why rent Bow-tie Booths? It's a blast! Your guests will love the entertainment and their photos will serve as a memento from your event. Photographers and Videographers tend to focus on photographing the couple and the wedding party. Its nearly impossible for them to get a snapshot of every person. With a Bow-Tie booth every guest will have the chance to be recorded and photographed- even the shy ones!
How many photos and videos can be taken? Limitless amounts!
Does the Bow-Tie Booth come with a person to help? Yes, The owners- Carly and/or Jill will be there for any questions you have and to inspire guests with props and ideas.

Can we choose the backdrop of our photo? Currently we offer red, blue, black or white curtain backdrops. If you have your own material you would like to use as the backdrop, thats fine by me! Just let me know what you have in mind. Also, ask us about our green screen feature!
