The winners of the gift cards are: Heather, Sarah, and Mindy. Thanks for all the suggestions, I'll post the best photo booth shots on the blog in a few weeks.
Over the last few years I've seen photo booths cropping up with increasing frequency at parties. Some are simply a photographer with a camera, backdrop, stool, and box of props. Others are actual portable photo booths that give you the choice of leaving a video message or printing instant photo strips, and they give you editing options in the booth on a touch screen.
After participating in a few different photo booth, I'm ready to try setting up one of my own. I'm going to be organizing a photo booth at my parents home for their annual family Christmas eve party next week. I have my camera, tripod, a regular plain black photo backdrop, and a few props.
And now for the giveaway. I need inspiration, and I'm willing to bribe you for it. I have three $20 gift cards for some of my favorite local eateries (Herm's Inn, Jack's Pizza, and The Crepery) up for grabs. All you have to do to be entered to win is answer the following question and leave your email address in the comments. Winners will be randomly drawn from the comment section and notified via email on Friday December 20th.
My question to you, dear readers, is this: What would your top 5 props/accessories/backdrops for a family friendly holiday themed photo booth? A santa hat, mistletoe, feather boas, a red nose, fake lips, Mr. Magoo glasses, reindeer antlers, jingle bells, false beards/mustaches, ugly Christmas sweaters, oversized tree ornaments, strings of lights. What rings your bell when it comes to photo props?
PS - Don't live in Cache Valley but still want to leave suggestions? You're welcome to comment and if you win you could always give the card to someone you know who does live close enough to use it. Or just write DEM (don't enter me) at the top of your entry, that way you can leave your suggestions but you won't be entered into the gift card drawing.
