What inspired you to start your business?
As wedding photographers, we attend a lot of weddings. We love photos. They are one of the few things you can take away from a wedding that last a lifetime. It was disappointing to see the service photo booth companies offered. We saw such great potential in a service that provided photos of all the guests at a wedding in such a fun and interactive way. There is no reason that photo booths should deliver mediocre image quality, old clunky setups, lack of interaction between guests and above all sub-par customer service. We wanted to offer a service that was fun and interactive, had social media connectivity and ensured that guests had access to all of the photos from the event. We also wanted to build a company where customer service was the driving force. So, we created an experience that promoted a relaxed, fun atmosphere. We made sure guests could walk away with a printed memento within 10 seconds of being in the booth. We also made it possible for guests to quickly and easily access their photos. Within a few seconds of being in the booth you can email or text your photos to yourself to be shared on any social media or digital platform. You can also leave your email with us and you will receive the online gallery of digital photos for download the day after the event. It’s all wrapped up in a sleek and modern design and it works flawlessly. All you have to do is plan on having a blast with your guests. We do the rest.
What’s your favorite part about working in the wedding industry?
We are really lucky to work in an industry where we are invited into one of the most exciting and love filled days of people’s lives. Wedding days are a true celebration of relationships. The bride and groom are surrounded by their closest friends and family, some of whom have traveled great distances to be there. We want brides and grooms to see how much they were loved on their wedding day. There’s no better medium to do that than through photography. We get to share the excitement of a wedding day with people and it gives us great joy to help deliver an experience that people will remember for the rest of their lives.
Share a piece of advice with our brides:
Our best advice? Plan on having fun at your wedding. Let loose with your guests. Some of the best moments on a wedding day are are unscripted, at your reception. Once the formal ceremony is over, you’ve eaten, and made it through toasts you can really relax and enjoy your party. Our photo booth is the perfect way to capture some of the unscripted fun moments from people you never expected to see in the photo booth! When grandparents hop in the booth, that’s our favourite!
Do you have any exciting news for us?
In addition to our core photo booth offering, we are excited to be offering Instagram printing in the coming season. It’s genius and super easy! The bride and groom select a custom hashtag for their wedding. They share their hashtag with their wedding party and wedding guests through social media or through signage at the wedding. Guests post images they take at the wedding on Instagram with that hashtag. Once they arrive at reception, Flash Co. will have all of the hashtagged photos printed and ready for guests to take home. During the reception guests can take their own photos and get them printed immediately at the event! This service is awesome because it’s the fastest way for a bride and groom to see photos from their wedding day. From getting ready moments, to exchanging vows all the way through to letting loose on the dance floor. The whole story of your wedding day can be captured and ready to take home by the end of the night. It really is a fantastic service.
What’s a wedding trend that you’re totally in love with right now?
Social media platforms like Instagram. The growing popularity of custom wedding hashtags on Instagram is so awesome. It creates a digital space for guests’ photos to be compiled in one place. Anyone who was at the wedding can contribute their photos and anyone who wasn’t able to make the wedding can feel like they were there. We think its a real treat for the bride and groom to get to see moments from their wedding in perspective they wouldn’t otherwise get to see. When combined with a service like our Instagram printing, a custom hashtag allows guests to connect at the wedding in ways they couldn’t before. The bride and groom also get to relive their wedding from the perspective of their guests. It gives them something they can take home at the end of the night, something they can have forever.
