Fun "Photo Booth"

Shortly after I posted this blog post, I received an unfriendly comment from one of the readers. I feel like I should address this on this post. The reader was anonymous so I can't even write him/her back. I am paraphrasing, but he/she said that this "photo booth" idea was not my idea and should credit the person that came up with this. If you read my blog post below, I have no intention to even claim this was my idea. All I said was this is something that we always wanted to do or offer. This was something that Haley and Mike wanted so we did it for them. Actually my bride and groom sent us a link to see what their idea was. One thing that I did not do very well was to credit the people that had this idea in the first place. So here it is: The Image is Found

********************************************************
Last Saturday Jason and I shot Haley and Mike's wedding in Cupertino. They requested to have a fun and crazy "photo booth" on their wedding day for their guests. This is something that I have always wanted to offer, but haven't had a chance to put it in my wedding collection.

After seeing the pictures from Jason this evening, I can't help but crack up!! This is something that I have to offer going forward. This was SO MUCH fun that most of Haley and Mike's guests came back for more. We used an interesting wall as a simple backdrop, set up a bunch of lights, then went at it with a wide angle lens. How FUN!!! My future couples, if this is something you are interested in, let me know so we can add this to your collection. It is a great way to get your guests act silly, have a great time and also a great way to know who came to your wedding!

Enjoy!

Although we have not had the pleasure of working together yet (I will see you in August) your work is amazing. Don't let the unfriendly comment affect the products you are able to bring your clients. Love the shots!!

Haley and I can't say "thank you" enough for all of your amazing work and expertise. we will forever have great memories of the crazy day. sorry for ruining the whole photobooth idea, some people just don't understand that doing similar ideas is a form of flattery! keep up the great work thanks again!

Hey Augie,

This is Kevin, Michael's best man. You did a great job at my brother's wedding. Your photos are fantastic. There is no doubt you will become one of the best wedding photographers in the bay area. Now when am I going to see some of the pictures?!! :)
