Ah graduation: The capstone on years and years of study and toil. School is no joke—and neither are most school portraits (Well, except for these gems). For the most part, though, yearbook pictures and senior portraits never convey personality, let alone the sense of pure unadulterated elation that comes when you finally finish your degree.

It’s no secret that having a photo booth at your party takes the fun factor up to 11. How often,in our daily lives, do we get to play dress up? Nowhere near enough! There is something magical about putting on a wig, headdress, or foam finger that just lets us escape ourselves and have a ball.

Who visited 11 cities in 16 days, pulling off more than 20 events showcasing Microsoft’s new Surface Pro 3? None other then the Two Dudes. It has been a whirlwind and we are just now coming back up to the surface (no pun intended) for a breath of fresh air. The last few weeks have been filled with blood, sweat and tears…err should I be honest and say traveling, eating and mingling with some of the nations leading innovators from Microsoft. Needless to say we feel very fortunate to be a part of Microsoft’s Futures tour, it has been a fabulous and exciting experience and we have enjoyed every minute of it.Read More
I’m not going to lie - when we walked through the doors and entered the Grand Hall at the Flood Mansion in SF, I took a moment to myself and imagined I lived in this classic Italian Renaissance designed mansion with stunning views overlooking the San Francisco Bay. Thirty seconds later, I was back on the job sprinkling the dolphin sweat and unicorn tears on our photo booth to make sure we were fully charged with portrait magic.Read More

The Oyster Point Dragons are at it again! If you don't recall, we worked a fundraiser event for them recently and this time, they put on an awesome Easter Egg Hunt in conjunction with the San Mateo County Harbor District, featuring dragon boat tours, a live helicopter display, a sighting from the Easter Bunny and, of course, the best photo booth in San Francisco.Read More
Every so often, we talk to people who LOVE the beautiful photos we take with our open-air photo booth, but don't have room in their event budget to hire us. We do our best to be creative and flexible with our pricing so that we can accommodate people's budgets for different events, but sometimes it just doesn't work out and that's totally okay.Read More
Cathy & Jerry were married several weeks ago overseas, but they wanted to have a party for their friends at home in the Bay Area, and what a party it was! In fact, it was such a party that some of Cathy's friends from Australia made the quick 18-hour trip just to see what all the fuss was about! As most everyone knows, Australians are the life of any party, and they were no disappointment this time, providing our first naked photo booth pics, and making sure to set a new booth record before we closed down for the night!Read More

Both of the dudes were born and raised in the East Bay, and we grew up going to see the incredible animals at the Lindsay Wildlife Museum in Walnut Creek. We even rescued an injured bird in the 4th grade and the museum nursed it back to health.
So when we had the chance to run our booth at their annual charity gala at the Roundhill Country Club in Alamo, we jumped at the chance! It was an incredibly fun night with an exciting live auction, photo ops with the wildlife, movers and shakers from all over the SF Bay Area, and of course, the best open air photo booth rental money can buy!Read More
