The Booth Bar’s recipe for “top shelf” photo experiences

The Booth Bar was founded by two people who have a passion for photography and unique experiences. By capturing unique experiences through a series of many photos over the years, they were able to create a photo experience company. This gave them an opportunity to share their own spin on creating photo experiences for people, brands, and consumers.

The founders of the booth bar, JP “the photo experience guru,” and Stephanie, “the creative design expert.” have crafted an idea of remembering experiences by capturing moments in real time with photography, the modern day photo booth.

The idea of being able to bring a photo experience to life in days, weeks, months, and years later is simply remarkable. They sought after the best technology in the photo experience market so that they can bring clients unique photo booths to make their event one to remember forever.
