Sunday Bloody Sunday

We spent Sunday Funday on Rainey Street working with PERIOD’s Sunday Bloody Sunday! The non profit was originally developed because of the lack of menstrual supplies in the homeless community. As stated on their website, the nonprofit’s goals are to give women access to the period products they need to feel confident and clean every menstruation cycle, no matter their income.

As a 100% female funded and operated business, it was an absolute no-brainer to get involved with their Sunday Bloody Sunday bar crawl. The event was hosted by the Austin PERIOD chapter to raise awareness in our community and contribute funds and supplies to Austin’s homeless shelters. There were eight bars involved including: Augustine, The Alibi, Javelina Bar, Lucille Patio Lounge, The Parlor Room, Container Bar, Clive and Lustre Pearl. Each bar served a signature period themed drink of their choice and a portion or all the proceeds were donated to Periods ATX.

selfie station

To maximize the space and crowd we had two selfie stations set up, as well as roaming photography! We partnered with Austin Flower Walls for the selfie station at Lustre Pearl and paired the selfie station at Container Bar with Pop & Drop’s streamer install! This wasn’t the first time we’ve had multiple services at one event, and it certainly won’t be our last! You can check out other events where we had multiple services here and here!

Alamo Drafthouse Appreciation Event

We had so much fun at providing two photo booths for Alamo Drafthouse’s ALAMOCON ‘19! The event is organized to appreciate and recognize Alamo Drafthouse’s employees and feature new industry services. The guests included executives and upper management from all over the country including head chefs, general managers, territory managers and owners.

There were vendors of all backgrounds, including food and beverage. Salt Lick Barbecue was served first (because, Texas) and the desserts were catered by Wyeth Patisserie.

As unique as Alamo Drafthouse as a company is, we wanted to have a unique photo booth set up. We coordinated a portrait photo booth with print outs and a selfie station near the DJ. Having two photo booths is perfect for large parties so guests can be entertained with two different setups and a line doesn’t form, distracting guests from the party itself!

This was the best opportunity for us to showcase our new balloon installation. Yes, you read that right.. balloon installation!! We loved incorporating our balloons as a backdrop for both the portrait booth and the selfie station. It stood out in the large venue, encouraging the guests to engage in photo taking. It really made the booths POP (see what we did there). We matched the colors of overlay and start screen with the balloons and it couldn’t have tied into the theme any better.

 Be on the lookout for more of these balloon installations for our events and contact our team for an installation quote for your next event!

The power of a sponsored photo booth

Let us paint a picture you may be familiar with: You’ve got some killer ideas for your event and you know a photo booth would be the perfect addition, but you’ve got a tight budget for entertainment. You had photo booth company do your event for free last year, but you really felt like your event was put on the back burner, and they aren’t available to do it again for free. You’re back at square one and don’t want to have to ask more people to work for free.

You need a sponsor. The great news is, you know of a third party company that would be the perfect sponsor to promote their brand at your event. All of your guests fit perfectly into this company’s target demographics. But where do you start to begin securing that company as a sponsor? That is where we come in.

Follow these five simple steps to lock in a sponsor and create a mutually beneficial relationship that won’t have your event taking a hit.

  • First thing we recommend is creating and booking your ideal photo booth package with Oh Happy Day Booth. You can see all of our services and add ons, starting with our portrait booth, here. We suggest adding a custom vinyl wrap, a custom start screen, email capturing and digital sharing analytics to track the audience to ensure maximum return on investment and brand visibility. By adding these options, you’ve now curated a marketing tool for your future sponsor. They’ll thank you later, trust us.

  • Once you’ve created your ideal package, double your cost of renting the booth. By doing this, you’ve now created a profit margin that will help with your organization’s funding. Not only are you able to cover the cost of the photo booth rental, you’ll profit off our services, which makes this a win-win-win for everyone. We suggest adding in additional sponsorship incentives such as logo placement on signage, hyperlinks on your website, complimentary tickets to your event, announcing their services at your event, and social media mentions. While these incentives have little associated cost, they hold a lot of value for a sponsor.

  • After you’ve created an incentive deal that a photo booth sponsor will benefit from, identify the demographics of the guests attending the event. You’ll want to know the statistical data relating to the population of your event, especially for your future event partners. This is important because when you know your demographics, you can then determine what type of company would benefit most from marketing to your guests.

  • Since you now know your demographics and which company would benefit from the audience, start contacting companies and find the decision maker on staff regarding marketing or sponsorship opportunities. Explain your photo booth sponsorship package, and all it’s associated benefits. It is a huge marketing tool to amp up their business, and let them know that they would be the exclusive photo booth sponsor. Fancy! We suggest reaching out to more than one company that could potentially sponsor your event. If you already have a lead from another sponsorship in the past, or know of a company that has been interested in working with your organization, start there!

  • Once you have a strong lead, that responded and said they are interested in learning more, let them know we can create a mockup so they can visualize the experience. We can create a branded photo overlay for the print outs, show them digital analytics from past events, and design their vinyl wrap with their logo so they’ll know exactly what they’re benefitting from supporting your event. This will seal the deal for the sponsorship package.

A few examples photo booth experiences that have involved sponsors are below! Art Bra Austin is annually hosted by the Breast Cancer Research Center, and in 2018 they had two sponsors: Snyder Plastic Surgeons sponsored the roaming photography and selfie station and Texas Oncology sponsored the Portrait Booth. Together, these sponsors and the host benefited from the event and it was a hit for all the attendees as well!

We’ve had success with our simple five step process and we know you will too! Interested in learning more? Contact our sales team today at kati@ohhappydaybooth.com.

Let us treat you to coffee!

During this time of year, as all the craziness of wedding season begins to wind down and with tons of holiday parties right around the corner, we start reflecting on all of the amazing people we've gotten to work with since we started our business last October. There is absolutely no way we would be where we are today without you, and we want to say thank you!

Word of mouth is like gold in this industry! Other people trust you, the people who have seen the booth in action. Your opinions matter immensely, and we want more fun people to let us be a part of their fun events! For this to happen, we need reviews! And we're here to offer a little incentive.

If you leave us a review on at least three of these platforms, we will mail you a cup of coffee! Okay, so it'll be a Starbucks gift card. But who doesn't love a free drink from the 'bucks?? To make it easy, we won't even consider it cheating if you copy and paste your review across all the platforms!

Marsala Wedding Inspiration

Here at Oh Happy Day Booth, we're always searching for ways to make your photo booth rental cohesive with your wedding theme and color scheme!

When Pantone rolled out Marsala as their 2015 Color of the Year, we instantly fell in love. We're still so excited that this shade still hasn't gone out of style, and we think it's the perfect fit for a fall or winter wedding! Several of our backdrops would look so amazing with marsala, but the gold/marsala color combo is just about unbeatable.

We can't wait for Pantone to release their 2017 color (or will it be color(s) like it was this year??)! According to House Beautiful, even with the fall season quickly approaching, it looks like spring is on Pantone's mind! They rolled out a few predictions of what hues will be popular this coming spring, and we're crossing our fingers that Flame and Island Paradise are in the running for the title of Color of the Year!

Are you getting married this fall? What are your wedding colors? 

Hannah & Zach's Wedding

We got to booth it up with Hannah and Zach at their Fort Worth wedding alongside our sister company, Kelsey Butler Photography! The Brooks at Weatherford provided the perfect backdrop for their big day, and the reception hall was essentially a gorgeous indoor renovated barn! It was a rainy day, but that couldn't stop the fun. We printed out about a million photos and we even got to watch as guests got creative as they signed the couple's guest book upgrade!

Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Doty!!
