Austin Under 40 Awards

A black tie affair made for Austin’s best!

We had the pleasure to be part of Austin’s Under 40 Awards ceremony this month! This is the 22nd year that the gala was organized to celebrate emerging Austinites and to celebrate their success. There were 17 winners that stood out from their colleagues, ranging from from architecture and culinary art to legal work and education.

Austin Under 40 Awards

For the 750 guests in attendance, we knew having two photo booths were a no-brainer. We organized our portrait booth in the entryway of the gala and our selfie station at the VIP after party so we could have guests maximize their experience! The attendees were crazy about the portrait booth the entire event! From the second we set up the booth to when we were tearing down and packing it up, we had a line of guests eager to take their photo! The garden party themed allowed us be creative with the floral overlay of our selfie station images, paired with our streamer and balloon installation. We partnered with Austin Flower Walls for their backdrop with our portrait booth and had everyone asking if the flowers were real or not the entire night!

Art Dinner at Laguna Gloria

Can we have this night on repeat please?

 The Contemporary Austin planned and hosted the Fifth Annual Art Dinner in celebration at Laguna Gloria, one of the dreamiest venues in Austin. Although we may be bias, check out video of the venue here. There were exhibitions by world-renowned artists to display their sculptures and contemporary work, honoring their creativity.

 The guests were dressed to the nines in their vibrant elegant attire, as requested by The Contemporary Austin. Every detail from the place setting at dinner to guests broaches and cufflinks were awe-worthy. We wanted to keep the vibrant elegance, and our photo booth was paired with a streamer backdrop provided by The Color Condition and a velvet loveseat. Our set up proves you don’t have to stand for a photo op if you can pair it with well-designed furniture! We added the Art Dinner sponsors along with the logo to the image overlay, which is one of the many perks we offer for sponsors! You can read more about the power of sponsorship on our blog here.

 We had the best time with the guests at Laguna Gloria and we’re already looking forward to next year’s dinner. Congratulations to all the recognized artists!

Feathers & Frosting Cake Tasting Event

Cake for breakfast? Sign us the heck up.

We’ve done two cake tasting events for Danae at Feathers and Frosting, and without fail we always leave with a car seat full of cake on the drive home (most of which won’t make it past the end of the week). We were so excited to be a part of this event and work alongside such amazing vendors. We knew we wanted to use the white brick wall as the photo booth backdrop for our selfie station set up. We’re big supporters fo a sleek and simple aesthetic. Between photos and boomerangs, the boomerangs were the crowd favorite, and guests decided to use the faux cakes as props!

The Rising Tide Society - 20 On The Rise Finalist

Facebook Twitter B.png

Oh Happy Day Booth is one of the best things I’ve done with my life. I originally started off as a wedding photographer, but I knew my progressive neurological disorder put an expiration date on that career. I wanted to find something that had some more longevity to it, and I knew I could find that in a photo booth business. I jumped in with both feet, and strive to lean in to every experience along the way. As I look back on all that we've accomplished so far, we are honored to have been selected as a finalist for The Rising Tide Society's 20 On The Rise

A huge amount of credit for my success lies with my husband. Peter always says it’s not our business, it’s my business. I guess we can agree to disagree on that one. He’s never once doubted my crazy ideas, and pushes me to pursue those ideas when I have them. He has put equipment in my car countless times when I couldn’t do it myself, has worked bridal shows and open houses when I know he didn’t want to, and has saved my butt more times than I can count. He’s helped me proof read every difficult email I’ve had to send (y’all know the type) and he’s been there when amazing things happen (like 20 On The Rise!). He’s my constant encourager, and there’s no way I could do what I do without him.  

I don’t care what anyone else thinks, but I have the best parents. Since day one, they’ve always encouraged both me and my sister when we had ideas or passions. They taught me that regardless of what other people said, if you wanted something badly enough, you can do it. I’m grateful that because of them, growing up I never felt like anything was impossible, and that transferred into adulthood. Mom and Dad have been my faithful sounding boards, my fierce cheerleaders and my saving grace when I made questionably poor decisions starting out. 

My sister has always been a leader by example. She is a orthotist/prosthetist in North Carolina. If you don’t know what that is, it’s someone who make prosthetic limbs. Uh-huh. She’s always been the smarty pants of the family, and I’ve always been playing catch up. She inspires me every day as she makes the lives around her so much better, and she’s taught me the value of a good work ethic. She’s also the one that managed to help me swing my first out of state event, which I’ll never forget.

I would be literally nowhere near where I am without my attendants. Their commitment to providing great experiences for guests and their attention to detail have allowed me to stop working 8 days a week and just focus on running the business, which has been my goal all along. They gave me my life and my sanity back. Other photo booth owners have asked me how I’ve managed to find such great attendants, and I have nothing to say other than I must have cashed in all my lucky cards at some point. 

The Rising Tide Society’s local Austin chapter has been one of the most valuable tools for me. The community I’ve found through this group is incredible. I’ve made friends and seen other businesses thrive in the competitive Austin market because of this community. When I was starting out, I can’t tell you how many times I posted about needing help at an event and had a bunch of people respond. I found my first attendant, Hope, in the group, and when I needed to start looking for more help, she found Ericka and Kelsey for me. What I’ve gained from RTS is intense and immeasurable and I’m forever grateful. 

Fun and Flirty Galentine's Brunch Styled Shoot | Austin Photo Booth

We are so excited to share some fun photo booth images from this styled shoot we did for Galentine's Day! We have an unhealthy obsession with Parks and Rec and just knew we needed to do a brunch shoot this year, and we managed to pull it all together in less than two weeks with lots of help from some amazing vendors. We were published on Every Last Detail blog as well, so check out their post for some gorgeous photos from Kiera Jane Photography!
