When life gives you lemons, make lemonade

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade

 

We At the Photo team absolutely love this saying and this is what drives our whole team forward. It makes the point that you can take any sort of negative experience and turn it into something useful. Whether it be a photographer working for a challenging client or even our admin team facing a slightly difficult day we all know there is a light at the end of the tunnel. What ever is thrown at us (including lemons!) then we all need to see it as a lesson that we should learn from and that there is a reason why it has been thrown at us. We also learn new skills when we experience these moments which we never forget. Nothing is too difficult to solve and that is why all our event photographers are able to deal with any curve balls at any given event, whether it be a last minute change by the client or even a slight technical issue, we can solve it! The reason why we stay positive is because we hire experts in their fields and they all have a vast amount of knowledge in dealing with technical queries to dealing with softer skills such as building rapport with their clients and guests. Every experience is seen as a useful experience.

 

 

Nothing is too much trouble for our wedding photo booth and party photo booth as it comes with a fully equipped event photographer. Taking photos for the digital photo booth is like looking after a baby that they want to nurture and love until the photos are finally delivered to the client. We are perfectionists and are not satisfied till we get the thumbs up from our clients. This is why you will see that all the images that we produce for our professional photo booth excel with class and style.

 

 

So we love lemons! It brings out the best in us, makes us more determined and proves to us that we can do anything we set our minds to! Never give up!

 

Love, The Open Photo Booth Team

When clients seek for a photographer whether it be a professional photo booth, a wedding photo booth or party photo booth they seek photo booths that can produce “i-catching” images and this means photos that are immediately appealing or noticeable and most of all striking.

 

At The Photo Team we really work to make our content more visually appealing and to make a normal photo look very modern, meaningful and mind blowing.​ We want our photos to stick out like a sore thumb and be the forefront of observer’s minds again and again. Our very own photographers can do this by using our latest digital photo booth.

 

Here are examples from The Photo Team on some of the eye catching photos of this year that have been taken by our photographers…

 

Use layouts that are eye grabbing. Don’t just lay objects out in a uniformed style but mix it up, inject some depth to the colour of your photo and make it look different to the norm.

 

 

​Always aim for simplicity. Do not try to capture too much in one shot as the meaning will be lost as well as the observer not knowing what to focus on. Make a photo stand out so that the message you are trying to deliver through a photo is identified by anyone admiring it.

 

 

At The Photo Team we like to make our photos full of contrast, variation and we play with the light to get a unique approach. All our photography work is done with care and attention and images are exaggerated through tricks of the light which has been mastered over time.

 

 

We can guarantee to put a spark in any photo that is captured and enhance features, backgrounds and focal points to ensure that not all photos are the same, they all sing a different song but all in all capture a harmonised approach.

…And the winner is…

…And the winner is…

 

We ran a photography competition for our own Photo Team photographers. We asked three of our most busiest photographers of the week of our competition to go to any of their events and choose their best corporate photography, conference photography photo or even capture a shot at any event they have been booked for. The aim was for them to select their favourite snap and send to the head office so we could submit this onto our Instagram page and see how many likes they could get from the public in a duration of four weeks. We had a great response from our followers and it was a very close call at the beginning but over the weeks we could evidently see what was capturing the public’s eyes.

 

Well done to our photographers and here are the submissions…

 

 

 

 

… And the winner is Anna. Anna has been with us for a short space of time but she was lucky enough to have captured the first photo from a Hindu pre-wedding ceremony called “Pithi”. Anna captured a beautiful photo of a young bride-to-be two days before her wedding day. The bride was being covered by a paste made out of chickpea flour, turmeric, rose water and other ingredients. Since ancient’s times, the Pithi ceremony is celebrated in both the bride and bride groom’s home separately. This entails rubbing a paste on the bride and bride groom’s face, hands and legs. Family members and friends have fun getting the bride and groom completely covered in the paste. This paste is meant to brighten and even the skin tone, so that the couple may have a glow on the wedding day! As you can tell our bride found the whole experience really enjoyable and funny!

 

We at The Photo Team like to keep our photographers on their toes and ensure we all work together as a team, so running competitions or even having a thank you dinner to appreciate their work keeps the teams morale up and ensures to keep our company as successful as it is!

 

So contact us today for our professional photography service including our open photo booth service with our digital photo booth and see what memories we can create for you!

Payal & Danny’s Wedding – 1 July 2017

Payal & Danny’s Wedding – 1 July 2017

 

We were privileged to be invited to the wedding reception of Payal and Danny and provide them with our famous Open Photo Booth. The wedding took place on the grounds of The Great Lodge in Braintree Essex. Originally known as Great Park, the estate was an enclosed medieval deer park, owned by the crown until 1550. It was ‘emparked’ with a paling fence in order to retain a herd of fallow deer to provide hunting and venison for the Lord ’s Table. The Photo Team were invited to the reception party at the rustic and beautiful Anne of Cleves Barn. The barn was built when the estate was owned by Anne of Cleves following the annulment of her marriage to King Henry VIII and the inside of the venue had a feel of what the building may have looked like back in the 16th century. The venue was decorated with wild flowers and candles and the guests were all wearing their best attire with full smiles.

 

We certainly made an impact as all 180 guests were all excited and intrigued to understand how the booth worked as it wasn’t a typical closed photo booth. Our photographer was on hand with his magnificent prop box and large guest book to explain how the booth worked. Each guest was able to pick a prop and pose in a small group or up to a mahoosive group of 15 and pose to their delight. The photographer was able to jeer them on and get them all in the party spirit. Two photos were taken per group, the photo was then printed as a 6×4 size with two photos on each print and a copy was handed to the guests as well as one for the guest book. Many loving messages were written to the bride and groom and it was clear to see how much they enjoyed the reception with the highlight of our digital photo booth. At one point there were more people queuing for the booth than on the dance floor!

 

Here are some photos which are evident of why the professional photo booth is such a hit at all the events that we attend….
