The Fancy Divas: Nattie & TJ’s Wedding Photobooth

Oh my gosh you guys I have been DYING to post these photos and now I finally can! A few months ago I got a call from Nicole at NK Productions asking if I can bring my photo booth to a wedding that would be filmed for a new reality show on E! and I said um, YES! Here is where I should admit that I am a bit of an E! addict (now in recovery since we cut our cable). It was all very hush-hush, but she mentioned that it was the same production crew who did Kim Kardashian’s wedding & I started to get a little nervous. Then she said something about the girls of the WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment) and I had visions of our prop table being broken over someone’s back in the booth. Of course that didn’t happen, the reception at Michael’s on East was beautiful and classy (gorgeously decorated by Botanica, MMD Events, & US Tent) and everyone who came into the booth was extremely professional & kind (and TONS of fun). It was especially amusing to see these huge beefy wrestling dudes wearing my double-strand pearls and feather boas! I really wish I’d snapped a few behind the scenes pics on my phone, but I was so nervous to breach the confidentiality clause that I didn’t.  It was so much fun to be a part of this surreal experience (watching 4 camera crews run around a wedding reception definitely adds new twist to what I’m used to) with so many incredible vendors (see my list at the end) and I can truly say The Divas were all sweet as pie and definitely knew how to get fancy in The Fancy Booth! If you missed the airing last night, check your local listings for the mid-season finale of E!’s Total Divas! Look for my chevron dress and bright red hair at the reception. If you blink you’ll probably miss me!Botanica Design Studio, Cat Pennenga photobooth, Cat Pennenga, creative photo booth, Damon Tucci Photography, The Fancy Booth, glitter gold backdrop, Michael's on East, Modern photo booth, modern photobooth backdrops, Natalya Neidhart wedding, Natalya WWE wedding, Nattie + TJ's Wedding, Nicole Kaney wedding, NK Productions wedding, Photo booth props, Sarasota photo booth, Sarasota photobooth company, Total Divas show, Tyson Kidd wedding, vintage photobooth props, The Bella Twins Natalie Neidhart, Natalya WWE, Natalya Nattie Neidhart, T.J.

All That Glitters: Ritz Carlton Photo Booth!

Last night’s wedding (planned by the amazing Nicole Kaney) had a gold & purple theme and was held at the Ritz-Carlton Sarasota, so I figured it was the perfect place to debut my new Glitter-Gold photo booth backdrop! If you follow me on instagram, you know how excited I was to find the materials to create this beauty. And it served as the perfect, slightly disco-fabulous, sparkling glitzy backdrop for last night. I’d love to see how it looks with a Gatsby themed wedding!Sarasota photo booth company, Modern photo booth Sarasota, creative photo booth, Wedding photo booth Sarasota, Ritz-Carlton wedding, Nicole Kaney weddings, Glitter gold backdrop, photo booth propsSarasota photo booth company, Modern photo booth Sarasota, creative photo booth, Wedding photo booth Sarasota, Ritz-Carlton wedding, Nicole Kaney weddings, Glitter gold backdrop, photo booth propsSarasota photo booth company, Modern photo booth Sarasota, creative photo booth, Wedding photo booth Sarasota, Ritz-Carlton wedding, Nicole Kaney weddings, Glitter gold backdrop, photo booth props Sarasota photo booth company, Modern photo booth Sarasota, creative photo booth, Wedding photo booth Sarasota, Ritz-Carlton wedding, Nicole Kaney weddings, Glitter gold backdrop, photo booth props Sarasota photo booth company, Modern photo booth Sarasota, creative photo booth, Wedding photo booth Sarasota, Ritz-Carlton wedding, Nicole Kaney weddings, Glitter gold backdrop, photo booth propsSarasota photo booth company, Modern photo booth Sarasota, creative photo booth, Wedding photo booth Sarasota, Ritz-Carlton wedding, Nicole Kaney weddings, Glitter gold backdrop, photo booth props Sarasota photo booth company, Modern photo booth Sarasota, creative photo booth, Wedding photo booth Sarasota, Ritz-Carlton wedding, Nicole Kaney weddings, Glitter gold backdrop, photo booth props Sarasota photo booth company, Modern photo booth Sarasota, creative photo booth, Wedding photo booth Sarasota, Ritz-Carlton wedding, Nicole Kaney weddings, Glitter gold backdrop, photo booth props Sarasota photo booth company, Modern photo booth Sarasota, creative photo booth, Wedding photo booth Sarasota, Ritz-Carlton wedding, Nicole Kaney weddings, Glitter gold backdrop, photo booth props{A quick snap of me & Nicole!}Sarasota photo booth company, Modern photo booth Sarasota, creative photo booth, Wedding photo booth Sarasota, Ritz-Carlton wedding, Nicole Kaney weddings, Glitter gold backdrop, photo booth props Sarasota photo booth company, Modern photo booth Sarasota, creative photo booth, Wedding photo booth Sarasota, Ritz-Carlton wedding, Nicole Kaney weddings, Glitter gold backdrop, photo booth props Sarasota photo booth company, Modern photo booth Sarasota, creative photo booth, Wedding photo booth Sarasota, Ritz-Carlton wedding, Nicole Kaney weddings, Glitter gold backdrop, photo booth propsSarasota photo booth company, Modern photo booth Sarasota, creative photo booth, Wedding photo booth Sarasota, Ritz-Carlton wedding, Nicole Kaney weddings, Glitter gold backdrop, photo booth props Sarasota photo booth company, Modern photo booth Sarasota, creative photo booth, Wedding photo booth Sarasota, Ritz-Carlton wedding, Nicole Kaney weddings, Glitter gold backdrop, photo booth props Sarasota photo booth company, Modern photo booth Sarasota, creative photo booth, Wedding photo booth Sarasota, Ritz-Carlton wedding, Nicole Kaney weddings, Glitter gold backdrop, photo booth props Sarasota photo booth company, Modern photo booth Sarasota, creative photo booth, Wedding photo booth Sarasota, Ritz-Carlton wedding, Nicole Kaney weddings, Glitter gold backdrop, photo booth propsCongratulations to the Bride & Groom!

Photobooth: Nicole Kaney’s Anniversary Party

Last Fall, some of the region’s top wedding professionals gathered at Micheal’s Wine Cellar to celebrate the amazing Nicole Kaney’s 6th anniversary of her Wedding Planning business, NK Productions. She created a vintage jazz theme for the night, so I set up The Fancy Booth with a {ahem} jazzy backdrop of DIY paper wheels, grabbed my usual collection of vintage props and even wrangled a gigantic brass tuba for the braver booth guests. It was amazing to see so many people that are usually behind the scenes let loose and have fun in front of the camera!

Old Hollywood Photo Booth: Celebration of Hope

Earlier this month I was asked to set up my photo booth at a very special event, the “Celebration of Hope” graduation ceremony for Take Stock in Children Sarasota. With so many galas & red carpet events in town, I figured this would be any other event, but instead it was a special, intimate evening dedicated to honoring this year’s graduating students. The party (led by Dana Bakich and her event committee) was an old Hollywood, Black & White theme, so we printed everything in black & white on-site. But since party-goers might want to see their gorgeous outfits in color, here is a little sample of what we snapped in the booth.

Design + Wine = Fabulous Photo Booth

I met Caroline in the Superbowl Photo Booth earlier this month, as she was finalizing plans on the Design & Wine event she coordinated for Easter Seals Southwest Florida. She added me in to the event, held at Dolphin Aviation, and sent me the invitation for inspiration. I saw the colors, knew Caroline has great taste and created a plan for a very bright and colorful handmade fringed-streamer backdrop. {I followed this awesome DIY and spent about 3 days cutting, hanging and hot-glueing.} This might be my favorite booth so far. The event was full of people ready to have fun and I had quite a few repeat visitors! The backdrop survived (I really want to hang it permanently in my house….), and I had so much fun editing through these shots. Hope you have fun peeking! Sarasota Photo Booth, DIY streamer backdrop, creative event photosSarasota Photo Booth, DIY streamer backdrop, creative event photosSarasota Photo Booth, DIY streamer backdrop, creative event photosSarasota Photo Booth, DIY streamer backdrop, creative event photosSarasota Photo Booth, DIY streamer backdrop, creative event photosSarasota Photo Booth, DIY streamer backdrop, creative event photosSarasota Photo Booth, DIY streamer backdrop, creative event photosSarasota Photo Booth, DIY streamer backdrop, creative event photosSarasota Photo Booth, DIY streamer backdrop, creative event photosSarasota Photo Booth, DIY streamer backdrop, creative event photosSarasota Photo Booth, DIY streamer backdrop, creative event photosSarasota Photo Booth, DIY streamer backdrop, creative event photosSarasota Photo Booth, DIY streamer backdrop, creative event photosSarasota Photo Booth, DIY streamer backdrop, creative event photosSarasota Photo Booth, DIY streamer backdrop, creative event photosSarasota Photo Booth, DIY streamer backdrop, creative event photos

Photo Booth: Salvaged Booth for Healthy Start

I am finally posting about the extremely fun & successful photo booth we set up at “An Evening for Healthy Start” at Sarasota Architectural Salvage last month. The event is an annual fundraiser for the Healthy Start Coalition of Sarasota, a non-profit dedicated to improving health for new moms & babies. You may remember I shot some photos of {then} mom-to-be Jen for the event’s poster. It is so rewarding to a) get to do what I love every day and b) contribute to well-deserving and meaningful groups like this. Also, the party was super fun… Former Mayor Kelly Kirschner was the emcee {and he totally rocked}, Big Night Out played really great music, local food stars like Nancy’s BBQ & Lollicake Queen were on hand, and oh yea we had a rad booth set up! My extra talented hubby (Gregory Martin Design) built the amazing backdrop from salvaged wood & rescued life-saver rafts, and we nestled our gear & props in between the iron arches and salvaged statuary in the side yard. The only not-awesome part of this story is that I got hit with a horrible cold that day, and after an hour of sniffling all over the place (trying not to touch anyone as I greeted them), Greg earned extra gold stars by stepping in for me. With the help of my AMAZING assistant Monica, they rocked the booth for the rest of the night.

Here’s a quick peek at the photo booth setup I did for a Willis A. Smith holiday party at Marina Jack’s. Santa hats, cowboy hats, reindeer antlers + happy party guests = a booth full of fun.

Celebrating Ellie’s Belly: Baby Shower

Earlier this month I was invited to join good friend and fellow photographer Ellie and her friends + family to celebrate her baby girl, arriving this March. As I wrote about this past summer, Ellie and I have a TON in common, including some neuroses we both thought would interfere with our desires to be mamas. So it is beyond exciting to see her surpass those fears and be ABSOLUTELY GLOWING in expectation and excitement. This little girl will no doubt be showered with a ton of love, surrounded by laughter and she will definitely, definitely be stylish head to toe (can we talk about these baby Joe’s Jeans jeggings!). I was honored to be a part of this celebration and thrilled to capture the gorgeous atmosphere at Shoogie Boogie, floral arrangements by the always amazing Keren Lifrak & a few adorable moments with her family (including nephew E, how cute is he?). Can you spot the baby pic of Ellie?Baby Shower photos Shoogie BoogieBaby Shower photos Shoogie BoogieBaby Shower photos Shoogie BoogieBaby Shower photos Shoogie BoogieBaby Shower photos Shoogie BoogieBaby Shower photos Shoogie BoogieBaby Shower photos Shoogie BoogieBaby Shower photos Shoogie BoogieBaby Shower photos Shoogie BoogieBaby Shower photos Shoogie BoogieBaby Shower photos Shoogie BoogieBaby Shower photos Shoogie Boogie

Beautiful Birdies: Adelle + Aidan’s Birthday Wonderland

Stepping into the backyard (guided by chalkboard signs of course) of Yen’s home and into Adelle + Aidan’s birthday party was kind of like stepping into the “pages” of my favorite Pinterest boards! I knew the party would have to be pretty cute considering what I know of Yen and her amazing jewelry skills (semi-recent-past-life of hers), plus seeing all of the pins she has been collecting leading up to this party. But honestly, I do not know how she does it!! There was not a single piece of this gorgeous party for her twins {just turned 3!} that she didn’t make, sew, embellish or basically make fabulous. So, please get comfortable because I had a very difficult time editing down these images. Oh yea, and I’m pretty sure the kids had a blast too! From the cookie making stations, to the photo booth Yen built the night before…and let’s not even talk about the bouncy castle!

Feather boas, mustaches & funny glasses: Ashley + Jaime’s Wedding Photo Booth

This weekend we (me + my hubby/busines partner Greg) had the pleasure of setting up our photo booth at a GORGEOUS, I mean STUNNING wedding at Ringling Museum‘s courtyard. When I was chatting with one of the wedding photographers (Genya of Vue Photography), she said it felt like the set of a Bachelor episode (totally in a good way), with all the beautiful lights & decor. (I was pretty psyched that I’m not the only wedding photographer who admits to watching The Bachelor!) {The event was planned by the amazing Keren Lifrak} We kind of had the best situation, with our booth set up for the reception, so we got to participate AND watch all the good stuff (sucker for the father/daughter dance). And I have to say our booth was a big hit! Not sure if it was the handsome fella manning the printing station, or the suitcase full of props, but our corner was definitely a party in itself. Guests were able to take prints home as favors (courtesy of the bride & groom). Check out a few of my favorite shots from the night!
