Lauren Lowstan baked a picture perfect cake adorned with pink flamingos! Open Air Photobooth was onsite to capture endless poses and hand out printed keepsakes! We utilized a horizontal wood slat wall for our one-of-a-kind photo backdrop!

ILEA Industry event in Los Angeles

Last Wednesday, Open Air Photobooth sponsored the event industry mixer for the International Live Events Association (ILEA) Los Angeles Chapter. Event planners from the Los Angeles and greater southern California area gathered to “talk shop” and mingle with industry professionals. They asked us to provide a unique experience…. Something different than a simple photo booth. We suggested our portable flip book studio and digital animated GIFs…. They loved the idea!

The theme of this event was “Fiesta” so we dressed up our flat seamless white backdrop with papel picado banners to create a clean festive vibe.

Shown here are the hard working folks of Work the Room Productions letting loose!

The great thing about producing tangible flip books onsite at an event is that not only does the guest get a branded keepsake which they’ll flip through countless times, but the digital version is an animated gif which can be shared online to reach an endless audience! Email collection along with hosting of these animated GIFs really brings the uniqueness of flip books with the Open Air Photobooth full circle!
