Speakeasy Photobooth

Speakeasy | Roaring 20’s Photo Booth

This is how far behind I am on posting blog posts: I haven’t even posted photos from my own birthday party.  Seriously.  It was in June.

If you aren’t aware (I’m not sure how that’s possible if you even remotely consider yourself my friend) I started hosting theme parties for my birthday a few years ago.  It started with The Country Club, a smallish soiree with about 40 folks.  When 100 people showed up the next year to Bicycle Rodeo, I knew I’d outgrown house parties.  When 200 people showed up to Prom the following year, I was blown away.  Last year was an 80’s theme and nowawadays, I’ve grown my party repertoire to include a sometimes annual Masquerade Ball (photos from this year coming to the blog soon!).

This year was no exception to the awesomeness that is my birthday party and I must say, people really brought the goodness.  I hosted a Roaring 20’s Speakeasy themed party.  With jazzy tunes spun by Ascent DJ Dave Berkman and his awesome assistant Grant Stewart, aka DJ Gift.  A super huge shout out and thanks to my awesome stylists, Katie and Kathy at Tahoe Salon Be.  These two rad ladies were responsible for making me look SO amazing and did my hair and make-up for the event.

Next year’s theme isn’t totally decided, but I think I’m leaning towards 90’s.

Tahoe Photo Booth | Korbel at the Hard Rock Cafe

Our photo booth is no stranger to Lake Tahoe’s Hard Rock Cafe, which is available for private events of all kinds.  Recently, Tahoe hosted American Century Celebrity Golf Championship, during which Tahoe South is flooded with golf pros, celebrities and spectators for an amazing week of fun in the sun at world reknown Edgewood Golf Course.  Korbel was one of the event sponsors this year and held a private party at the Hard Rock to celebrate.  We were more than happy to provide Photo Booth!  Here’s a few of our favorite images from the day.

If you participated in the photo booth at the event, you can view, share and download your photos via this gallery.

Enchanted Evening Photo Booth

An Enchanted Evening Event and Photo Booth | SNC Spring Formal

Twice a year, the student government association at Sierra Nevada College hosts a formal for their students.  I’ve been hired as their event photographer whenever I’m in town and available and it’s always a great time!  This spring formal was no exception.  The theme of the night was “An Enchanted Evening” and there were gorgeous gowns, a filled dance floor, and a new record in the photo booth: over 1,100 photos in five hours!  Big thanks to Nichole Lockman who assisted me for the evening and the Lone Eagle Grille for the amazing venue space!

Eighties Rock’n’Roll Party and Photobooth

Corporate events and private parties are always a blast, especially when they involve awesome themes!  I recently photographed a private event at the new Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Lake Tahoe for Toyota of Northern CA.  The theme was 80’s Rock’n’Roll Party and they went all out!  The decor was amazing and included a massive candy bar, a cake table on pianos, and chocolate Toyota cars.  80’s cover band Tainted Love had the dance floor moving and shaking in no time.  The evening also included a Lauren Lindley Photography photo booth and a paparazzi “red carpet walk” with a Steven Tyler impersonator.

Here’s a few of my favorite photos from the evening.

German Sparkle Party

German Sparkle Party Photo Booth

Every year, my friend Kristel holds a German Sparkle Party in honor of her birthday.  This was the third consecutive year and I must say, we are getting really good at sparkling.  I feel so lucky to have met Kristel and I actually know her because of her birthday party.  On the first year of the event, I had heard it in the grapevine that there was a local who wanted to throw a German Sparkle Party for her birthday.  Being the fan of theme parties that I am, I was so jealous that I of course hunted her down, invited myself and all of my friends, and set up an extremely successful photo booth.  The sparkliness ever since has been amped up by a factor of 10, the costumes above and beyond, and the Tahoe Photo Booth that I set up, well, lets just say that we manage to exceed our own sparkly expectations year after year.

I’m fairly certain that there is nothing better than a raging dance party accompanied by massive amount of sequins, chafing aside.

If you attended Kristel’s German Sparkle Party, you may view the entire gallery of photos via this link.   She can share the password with you.

If you didn’t get to attend or are very confused about the entire theme, here are a few of my favorites from our German Sparkle Party Photo Booth that may or may not convince you that you also need to attend a German Sparkle Party.

Ya, we like to dancey dance.

Fireman's Ball Photo Booth

53rd Annual Firefighter’s Ball Photo Booth

Supporting our local community is important to me and our local firefighter’s definitely deserve our support.  I have quite a few close friends in our local fire department.  The money raised at the annual ball goes to charity,  the district’s scholarships to the fire academy at Lake Tahoe Community College and for equipment they couldn’t otherwise afford.  My favorite way to support our local non-profits is with a donated photo booth and the Firefighter’s Ball is no exception.  It’s especially fun with a fire truck as a back drop!

Thanks to all who came out to support the event.  If you would like to view all the photos from the 53rd Annual Firefighter’s Ball photo booth, you may do so via this link.

You Never Thought You’d Wear That Again! | Tahoe Photo Booth

I love working for the Lake Tahoe Hard Rock Cafe!  I’ve set up my Tahoe photo booth there for a few events now and they are always so wonderful to work with.  This time, the Hard Rock Staff came up with a party theme so great, I’m disappointed I didn’t think of it myself: “You Never Thought You’d Wear That Again!”  How genius is that?!  I was super excited to break out my Catholic High School uniform because really, you can’t ever wear that enough and, in an odd turn of events, someone at the event came up to me because she had also attended an Ursuline Academy for high school and it turns out that we attended the same school 25 years apart!

BAHM for Charity Photo Booth | Tahoe Chamber of Commerce

Congrats and big thanks for the Lake Tahoe South Shore Chamber of Commerce for their efforts to support our community. Our chamber hosts a monthly Business After Hours Mixer (BAHM) once a month.  Once a year, they have a BAHM for Charity and I honored to donate my photo booth to the cause.   This year’s BAHM for Charity raised $3,650 and food donations for local charities Christmas Cheer and Bread and Broth!

If you were at the event, you may view, download and share your photos from the online gallery.  I’m really sorry to those of you who wrote down your emails on the list.  Unfortunately, I didn’t notice the list get swooped up by cleaning staff and it went m.i.a. while I was cleaning up the booth.  Please share the gallery around to everyone who was there for me!

Tahoe Wedding Photo Booth | Rob + Conchita

I have to admit that when Conchita first contacted me about renting a Tahoe wedding photo booth from me and said that she only wanted it for one hour, I was not just skeptical, I was downright adamant that it wouldn’t work.  “A photo booth for an hour,” I said back, “that will never work!  It takes folks at least an hour to warm up to the idea.”  Chonchita was adamant that I was wrong and proceeded to hire me for an hour despite my protest for her wedding at Rojo’s Tavern.

I concede to Conchita.  Her friends and family managed to take 200 photos in one hour and I was amazed.  “We really like photos!” she said.

Here’s a few select photos from Rob and Conchita’s wedding photo booth.  If you were at the event, you may view the entire gallery via this link.

Gold sequin photo booth backdrop

DIY Sequin Photo Booth Backdrop | IEEE Spoken Language Technology Conference

The 2014 IEEE Spoken Language Technology Conference was held in South Lake Tahoe, CA this past December and I was more than excited to provide my Tahoe photo booth rental to one of their social hour mixers.  I decided to use my new sequined holiday backdrop that my mom and I made over Thanksgiving for some extra festiveness and it was a big hit!

Want to make your own DIY sequin photo booth backdrop?  The whole process cost about $110 in materials and 10 hours of time with two people.  You need six hundred 60mm sequins.   My mom sews my cloth backdrops for me with cloth she finds at her local fabric store.  It usually costs about $20 a backdrop.  We hand-sewed every sequin onto the backdrop out of fear that if someone accidentally ripped one off and we had sewn in a row, that they would all come down.  One sequin missing here or there, not such a big deal, but a whole row missing would be noticeable!

Here is a selection of photo booth favorites from the evening.  If you attended the IEEE conference and would like to view the full gallery, you may do so via this link.
