Hi! How's everybody doing? Good? Great! Can I get you anything to drink? Need a snack? We have some shrimp cocktail and tater tots left over .... and a ton of wine. Just let me know if you change your mind!
For our Oregon wedding reception we got pretty darn lucky! In the family we have a photographer. We were the guinea pigs for her new photo booth that she wants to try out at weddings. This isn't the normal photo booth where you cram in a little booth and take 4 shots and wait for your photos to come out in a strip. Those are totes adorbs (as the kids say these days), but this topped that! Here's how it went down ....
A flashy background (completely appropriate for the Vegas theme we had going!), props (I LOVE having props!!), a camera on a tripod, and a little clicker remote control thing that I never got to work for me. So now you take yourself and your friends & family, and have at it!
It seemed to be a total hit with the high school girls, which I was very pleased to see. People of all ages were testing it out, and it was so simple to just be silly and do whatever you wanted. For a while I believe I said, "just click away, I'm going to be an 80's model!" We had well over 100 and all were great, so here are just a few!
|By far probably my favorite of all the photos! That's MF's daughter front and center!|
|These three girls Wore. Me. Out!!!|
|My mom, our friend and the little guy|
|The creators of the best photo booth hilarity!|
|Maid of Honor and my baby cousin's ... baby, that's also not a baby anymore!|
|Our fabulous DJ Extraordinaire!|
|My new family - and apparently my new brother-in-law is a pimp!|
|I'm so excited to be a part of this group now - they are freaking awesome!!|
And runners - I'm trying to get the one in the air to join in for Dopey 2015!
|That's my "baby cousin" -- he grew up!|
|It's all starting to make sense now .... my new family!|
|This man helped create me. Clearly I didn't inherit his height!|
|Three girls that help run the city .... and one that makes THE BEST CUPCAKES IN THE WORLD!|
|My newest, favorite Rae girl!|
|"Look at me, I'm a model!"|
|I found a baby. For some reason nobody seemed concerned that I snatched her up and wouldn't share. She's now an honorary Rae girl, clearly!|
|I know I've shared this already, but it's my blog and I make my own rules!|
|And here we have it, the new happy couple!|
