Top Hat Photo Booths was delighted to be a part of the Indianapolis Zoo Event,
“Meet the New Team” on March 26th, to kick off the public campaign for funding for the new International Orangutan Center. The event was a pep rally complete with a marching band, lot’s of guests and in depth info on the “new team or Orangutan’s at the Indianapolis Zoo.” The zoon even introduced a game for guests to find which orangutan is best matched to your own personality. Find out by playing Match Game on the Indianapolis Zoo’s new website, www.azyandfriends.com. The Match Game is a terrific way for people to connect with the orangutans that will live in the new International Orangutan Center, which will open in May 2014.
From Contributing Blogger Sofia Angeli:
You see them in most events these days. And they’re often there to add fun to the occasions. They’ve actually become a trend for parties, especially wedding receptions. Photo booths have definitely come a long way from the early kiosks that were mainly there to provide instant ID photos and, at times, fun to kids and kids-at-heart. But how did the photo booth reach its new status of becoming almost a staple in weddings today?
A bit of history
The curtained photo booth that most people remember today is attributed to Russian Anatol Josepho. The one standing on Broadway, New York City, USA in 1925 is said to be the first of the many photo booths to come later.
In those days, digital cameras were never thought of and it took days for regular consumers to have their photos printed out. But this novelty machine generated photo prints in about 10 minutes. For those who needed to have their faces on ID cards, necessary documents, application forms, etc., it was a very welcome convenience. And for those who wanted a new kind of entertainment or fun souvenir, well, it was also a very welcome convenience.
Photo sticker booths
The Japanese introduced a version of the photo booth that made the machine more entertaining than it was before. In the 1990s, the photo sticker booth came about in Japan and also became a trend in South Korea, Taiwan, the Philippines and other Asian countries. It was also introduced in Australia, Europe and North America.
This opened up the people’s minds to the idea of the photo booth being used mainly for fun and souvenir purposes. For a minimal amount, you can have your solo or group photo taken and have them printed on sticker paper. You can also pick the design or background that you want.
The main reason why most adults didn’t fully embrace this purikura, the Japanese shortened word for “print club,” is that it features mostly animé designs that are quite juvenile for the tastes of many. Customers of these Japanese photo sticker booths are mostly teenagers.
Photo booths and engagement rings
Then came someone who had this ingenious idea of using the enclosed photo booth as the venue for his marriage proposal. Now, it’s become a logical choice for those who’d like to ask someone to marry them.
As long as you’ve got good timing, the photo booth will provide you an image capture series of the surprise, happiness and, possibly, tears when you popped the question and presented the ring to her. And it provides a good amount of privacy, too.
Wedding fun and favours
As mentioned earlier, the photo booth is now a famous entertainment alternative in wedding celebrations. Most photo booth rentals can now even offer you a selection of outputs – usually black-and-white prints, stickers and full-colour photos.
You can use them not just for you and your guests to get wacky photos with props and a themed backdrop. Some photo booth services also offer image albums that can replace the old-school store-bought guest book. Your guests can write their wishes and notes to you on that album. You can even hold a contest for the most hilarious pose or any other category that would go with your theme.
Decades ago, you probably won’t see photo booths and weddings in the same sentence. But now, this image capture machine attracts the second longest queue in a wedding – next to the buffet.
If you’re considering having a photo booth in your own wedding reception, talk to the rental company about your theme and your plans for the party. Remember how the current photo booth craze came about, and don’t be surprised if they can offer you some ideas you never thought were possible.

Did you know that Top Hat Photo Booths is not just for weddings? We do more corporate events, gala’s and fundraisers than any other photo booth rental company around. WHY? Well, besides the fact that Top Hat Photo Booths has a well trained staff and top of the line equipment, which is important…But we also offer many benefits that organizations and companies are looking for when renting a photo booth.
First of all, our photo booth is an adult sized, stand up style booth. That means that it is fun and easy to get a terrific group photo of everyone and you don’t have to sit on each others laps, which is awkward at company events. Second, we offer the ability to “brand” the photo booth panels, put a custom message on the inside message of the booth and add a custom logo to the photo strips.
Finally, we are now offering our RED CARPET PHOTO BOOTH option in all of our locations such as New York, Boston, Chicago, Baltimore, Long Island, Washington DC, North Carolina, Philadelphia, Indianapolis and many more locations. The Red Carpet photo booth offers the opportunity to have a custom backdrop with any logo you choose. Guests get to “walk the red carpet” put on some props and get a FUN photo booth picture taken.
We have a couple of Red Carpet Photo Booth options, you can get 1 photo with one 4 x 6 inch print out OR you can get 4 photos and get two customized 2 x 6 photo strips. Your guests will love it!
Top Hat Photo Booths makes booking easy. Whether you are looking to rent an Indianapolis photo booth or renting Boston Photo Booth or any other cities. Contact us via our website at www.tophatphotobooths.com.Read More....
‘Twas the night before New Year when all through the House
Both sides were pointing “He is the louse”.
The cliff was for certain that very night
For no one would budge without a dog fight.
The Prez was nestled all snug in his bed
While visions of re-election still danced in his head.
Then John in his jacket and Harry his cap
Said “One way to solve this – bring in Top Hat”
So into the photo booth they went arm in arm
For once they agreed – “What is the harm”.
One smile at the camera that almost looked real
That’s how it happened – the Fiscal Cliff deal.
Happy New Year from Top Hat Photo Booths!Read More....

Go get your fashion on. Seriously, it literally only happens THIS WEEK in New York City! OK, obviously fashion and the crazy world of it continues beyond this week, but if you know anything about the intense industry, you know the time is NOW.
Friday THPB helped the Fashion App SNAPETTE, working with the incredible designer Rebecca Minkoff celebrate her show and the start of this tidal wave of fashion at The Darby in New York City. POM Wonderful and Belvedere designed a delicious cocktail for the occasion and fashionistas of all types schmoozed and photo-boothed the night away!
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again:
TOP HAT PHOTO BOOTHS are the BEST way to brand, market, and get your guests/clients to remember who you are, what you offer, and how to get it!
Put your custom design on the exterior of the booth. Get your custom green screen backgrounds to hit home exactly as you want to your customers (high heels, new jewelry, hats, etc). Put your name and contact info, maybe even a special discount code on the custom logo on each strip. And la piece de resistance: get your guests/clients to blow up (that’s a good thing) your social media presence with our tablets, right outside the booth.Read More....
