Hi everyone!   ShotBox is something new that I’m offering for as an additional service for wedding receptions and events in 2010.  ShotBox is a photographer controlled portable studio- AKA a super fun place to be!

So here is the deal–I would set up the ShotBox for your reception starting at cocktail hour.  A photographer is running the ShotBox and directing you and your guests to do really fun and creative things.  Get in there for some fun portraits, large group shots, lots of dancing and getting crazy.  ShotBox would be “closed” during dinner and major wedding events like your cake cutting, first dance, and etc.  So the focus is still on you and your important wedding events.

ShotBox is a LARGE box (12’x12’x12′ indoor area needed) and it does not spit out photos for your guests to take home-the focus is on taking really creative shots.  You and your guests will be able sign up with their email address to see the photos when your regular wedding photos are ready to view.

As if you needed another reason to love this idea, check out these shots from last weekend….

My Husband

After seeing The Simpsons episode where Marge becomes a handyman (but because she is woman, no one will hire her, so Homer is a front for the business wearing a shirt that says “I Do All The Work”), Ryan and I wanted to buy dad a shirt that says “I Do All The Work.” We couldn’t find a shirt or a large enough file to make one, so he wore this pin.  He does do all of the work, especially on our renovation.  I love it.

I Do All The Work

Nicki, Guido, Sweet Dee, and Mark start the party off right with some serious rocking out. You know how I love air guitar, right?

My cousins, Josh and Lauren.  Do they look familiar?  I took some family portraits for them in July.

Devan and Nicki are going crazy in there! There are some serious hams in my group of friends and family.

Some friends dance to “Thriller.”  You may recognize Amy on the far right from her June Wedding and Lisa, in the red shirt, from her Engagement Session at the Morning Glory Inn.

Newlyweds Tom and Danielle.  They said they felt like celebrities since so many people they’ve never met recognized them from their wedding photos.



And at the end of the night, it was time to put everything away and think about the next time we’d see our lovely family and friends. Horray!

If you want ShotBox to appear at your wedding, let me know–I’d love to make it happen for you too!
