People think they hate being photographed, but that's probably just because they've been jaded by years of being tagged in people's bad photos. Hand people some silly props, put them in front of supermodel lighting, and suddenly they're lining up to get photographed again

Two Dudes & A Booth is a premium mobile photo studio available for weddings, corporate events, festivals, and marketing activities in the San Francisco Bay Area. We provide a fun and interactive photo booth experience that will result in fabulous photos that are sure to live on well after your event. 

We've taken the walls (and the stuffiness) off the standard photo booth to provide your event with an interactive photographic experience that will be the life of the party. Each customizable setup includes an open-air studio with tons of awesome props, an experienced photographer to take high-quality photos of your group, and deliver high-quality prints on the spot. To add to the fun, several large LCD screens broadcast the action to the rest of the party so everyone can see what the fuss is about.

Once upon a time, there were two dudes who dreamt of a world where a photo booth was more than a mildly fun experience encountered in shopping malls and video game arcades. As best friends since the age of six, these dudes conspired to capture their youth via magnificent studio lighting, professional photography equipment, and ridiculous props to create a fun photo booth experience the likes of which had never been seen before....<insert 80's montage of our two six year old friends growing up, becoming professional photographers, mastering studio lighting, moving to San Francisco, and assembling the ultimate open air mobile photo studio>...and thus, Two Dudes & A Booth was born.

Today, that dream is real, and there are more than just two dudes; in fact, several dudettes are making their way onto the scene!

Q: Who are you two dudes? And where do you come from?

A: After years of photographing weddings, babies, and fancy fashion models (basically babies, but taller), we have decided that we'd like to change things up and try something more fun, a premium photo booth experience that is WAY better than the typical booth you've crawled into with your friends.

Q: What makes you so special?

A: Our mom said so.

 And we have lots of photographic experience, lots of high end gear to make you and your friends look super-fab, and we're, like, pretty fun to hang out with. 

 ...at least that's what our mom said.

Q: Yes, but why is your booth so much better than the standard photo booth?

A: It starts with the setup - remember when I said we used to take pictures of fashion models? Well, all of that studio gear and expertise is now going to be capturing you and your family, friends, and coworkers with beautiful diffuse lighting to make a recipe of portrait perfection.  

Next, there's the booth. Our booth is an open-air interactive environment, not a box. That means you can fit a ton of people (literally, up to 20-30 people which easily weighs more than a ton) in each picture, and no one has to be the "seat" in the photo. Stand in front of our professional gear, strike a pose with 10-20 of your crew and get back to the celebration, but don't forget to grab your professional print as you stroll out of our mobile studio.

Lastly, there's the fun. All of our photographers are (self) certified party animals, sure to keep things moving along happily. Not that you will need much encouragement - between our tons of silly props and the live broadcast of images in stunning HD on our LCD televisions, a lack of smiles and laughter is rare near our booths. 

Q. What is an "open-air" photo booth? I'm not familiar with this wonderful contraption you speak of... 

 A. We've heard this a lot, so we actually wrote a little behind-the-scenes blog post to show you what we look like in action!

Q: What kind of events do you do?

A: If there are people there, we can make it more fun. We do tons of weddings, corporate events, birthday parties, festivals, and even make occasional appearances at bars & clubs. 

The two dudes are also fans of good causes; if you are planning a non-profit (or similar) event, contact us and we can probably work out a special rate.

 

Q: How does the whole photo process work?

A: Pick a prop, step into our booth, smile, pick up your photo and revel in your beauty while your friends stare jealously at your perfection on our HD displays. 

Q: How much space do you need? 

A: Our ideal setup uses a 12' x 12' footprint, with at least 10' of overhead space, but we can work in much more cramped spaces, hopefully with a bit of notice.  

Q: What's included in the package? 

A: Every package includes use of our photo booth and props, the backdrop of your choice, double prints (2 - 2"x6" strips) of every photo with the branding/message of your choice, as well as digital downloads of all the images after the event.

Q: Do you offer any upgrades?

Of course! We provide some additional services for people who are really trying to show up the photo booths from their Cousin Karl's wedding; some of our premium services include:

  • HD Projector setup (when an HD television broadcasting your images just isn't enough, we can put the slideshow on an entire wall)
  • Green screen backdrop (with the image(s) of your choosing inserted in the background
  • Social media broadcast of your event on Facebook/Twitter
  • Custom backdrops featuring logo/imagery of your choice

Q: How much do your packages cost?

A: Our pricing is dead simple, and we don't hide it behind contact forms or pricey add-ons. We have one package with everything you'll need for a good time, and just a few a la carte items if you're in the mood for something really fancy.

 Contact us and book your event today.  

Q: What does an "open air" photo booth look like?

A: Like this:

Q: Are you insured?

A: Yes! We have event liability insurance for up to $4 millllllion dollars!

How could we possibly do $4M in damages, you ask? Beats us, but it sounds like one heck of a party! 

Q: Ok, I'm sold. Where do I sign up?

 

A: Drop us a note to let us know when your event is, and we'll get right back to you to sort out the details!

...then bask in the knowledge that you are a party planning GENIUS! 

Q. Do you do regular wedding photography too? 

Yes! Several of our current and former dudes/dudettes are experienced wedding photographers; check out their pages here:
