A New Perspective

Yesterday was our anniversary, don’t get sentimental (well a little anyway) of the day we had our first experience with a photo booth – to be exact a Magbooth photo booth. We were in Louisville for Scott and Nadine’s wedding (my wife’s niece), I saw the Magbooth and it was love at first site. Not only did I fall in love with the photo booth because of how it looked on the outside, but one of the pictures that was snapped of me and my future bride (at the time we were just engaged – married now) will undoubtedly remain one of my favorite pictures of us for all time. Truth is there are three 4″ x 6″ pictures from that day that we framed and hung on the wall just as you enter our home (you guessed it – they’ve been there a year). Yes, I already had it in my head that I would be running an operation for them here in Ohio, Cleveland to be exact (but we service the state – just so you know). You can’t fall for something that hard and then not have any part of it again in the future.
Ok, let me get to my point. I’m not in the habit of hanging things on my walls, especially by a main entrance, unless it’s something of quality. Setting the issues of personal tastes aside, really good high quality pictures of you and a loved one can always be a welcome addition to anyone’s decor. An therein lies the topic of this post, high quality images and prints coupled with the ability to capture precious yet spontaneous moments. The picture on my wall is crisp and clear – burst of vintage color – yet caught a moment of spontaneity between that beautiful woman and myself (we haven’t stopped by the way – one of my favorite things to do is climb into a booth and get stinking silly with her). That’s where the design of Magbooth itself plays a crucial role. Let me demonstrate exactly what I mean. Have you ever heard a professional photographer say, “Ok – look at yourself now – ready – click”. Of course not, they say look at the camera – don’t they? So does the superior design of Magbooth – “look at the camera” and the moments you can put to film are pure and uninhibited. I attached one great example from a recent event (see bottom of post).
Now a year later, and what I knew back then is being repeated back to me by the folks we’ve had the pleasure of meeting because of our Magbooth operations here in Ohio (Cleveland). It’s not uncommon for the person I’m speaking with to say, “you know – I’ve been in photo booths before, but the quality of your pictures – how do you guys do that!?” or something along those lines. Also interesting that we get those comments every time we’re at an event or function. I was in love before, now I’m committed (a reference to both Magbooth and my wife).
Till next post – enjoy every moment – each one is a gift. Fred & Kristin.
