It’s been just over 5 years since we decided to start our company! Here’s a look back at how we built the booth.
Our friend Chris helped us draw out the plans and build the structure. We started with a couple pieces of plywood:
I’m very thankful for Chris. Before this project, I’d never used a saw! 🙂 FYI – all these pictures were taken in 2014 on an iPhone 5, so please forgive the quality, kids!
Just like that, the base was assembled.
Next came the fun part…drilling the hole for the camera!
I got a lot of satisfaction out of that!
We cut and framed the box at the top for lights and the flash.
I wanted a modular photo booth so that I could fit it into my car. We built two 3-foot boxes that stack and lock together. It works so well!
This was us testing the setup. Chris is standing next to the spot where your photo strips print out.
Then it was time to stain. This part wasn’t as fun for me, but I Behr’d through it.
Once it was complete, we attached the poles and curtains. I went to our local hardware store and had them cut and thread aluminum piping for the structure. Those also all fit in my car nicely.
We were lucky to have Chris and his know-how, but it was surprisingly easy to build!
The curtains are popular, but we can also set it up as an open-air booth. Here are a few pictures of people enjoying that setup.
