introducing the FOTOBOOTH!!

i’m VERY excited to introduce to you all a very new service for wedding receptions that i am now offering. its called the fotobooth. i introduced my fotobooth for the first time at ashlee & tom’s wedding last week at the landmark center in saint paul.

so many of my clients over the years have rented digital photo booths for their wedding receptions and they’re very neat and very popular. about 5 years ago i saw a colleague of mine demo a photographer’s kind of photo booth at a convention in las vegas and i thought, “what a great idea!”. well, since then i’ve seen many local national colleagues of mine also pick up and start to offer this very service to their clients. i know several friends of mine who have been offering wedding photo booths for their wedding receptions for the last year or two. needless to say, i dragged my feet on it a little bit, but i’m very happy to say its now here!!

for the fotobooth, what i do is what some people call a photographer’s version of a photobooth. instead of having a confined and enclosed “booth” space, i instead have a completely open space with a plain white backdrop. i then setup a high quality DSLR camera to a couple studio lights to create what is known as a high-key setup. everything is automated and controlled by computer so at anytime, one person or a BIG group of people can come up and have their photo taken.

its a very fun thing to have at a wedding reception and because its all automated, it really gets people to have some fun and loosen up a bit, as you can see in the examples down below. 😉

in a few months i’ll also have the option to print photos on-site for wedding guests as well for an additional fee. but all told, this service will only be available to brides and grooms who book me to photograph their wedding, but it will be the best deal in town by far for a wedding photobooth.

check it out and tell your friends!! its the new FOTOBOOTH by KO FOTO!!

state fair fun!!!

ok, so after i posted about checking to see if anyone wanted to go to the state fair, i did get two couples to respond and say they wanted to go! sarah & michael got married this year back in may, and steph & tom are getting married this october. now in case you’re wondering (everyone always asks me), both gals did NOT wear their actual wedding dress. i think sarah found hers at a thrift store (a great way to find cheap wedding dresses for fun!! :)) and steph had a friend who was kind enough to lend hers to use.

but we had a great time out there and it was fun to go back again since i didn’t go at all last year. here are some faves from the two shoots in no particular order:

its almost that time of year again!! state fair anyone???

so after a two year hiatus, i’m thinking of going back and doing some shooting at the state fair again this year. two years ago i took 5 couples to the state fair and had an absolute BLAST! well, so far i’m going there with one couple, kris & jamie, but i’m wondering if anyone else wants to go and have a wild and fun time.

if anyone is, LET ME KNOW! 🙂 i’d love to do some more this year and expand on some cool ideas i have.
