For my wedding, I constructed my first photobooth for our guests to enjoy. One night, my best man and I were chatting about the photobooth and how I had to make it portable and lightweight to transport to the wedding venue. Both of us being DIYers and builders, the conversation eventually turned into the idea of building it on a bike trailer and taking it to events. I have always been a fan of bike powered businesses, and this idea of a bicycle photobooth wouldn't get out of my head. However, the trailer wasn't doing it for me. Then one day I saw a 5 Speed adult tricycle for sale and thus PhotoTrike was born!
TL;DR In a drunken conversation at my wedding, this wacky idea was born. And I like bikes.
I'm just a guy that likes to build things. And I like bikes. And I like when people have a good time. PhotoTrike is half art-project, half "part-time job". For real work, I run an arts program for area youth.
Depending on the complexity of what you want, it usually takes us no more than 40 minutes to be set up and ready to go. Set up time is included and does not count towards your total package time.
Because our primary setup is a traditional photobooth, and not an open-air booth (though that's an option!), we provide simple props that don't take up much space. And we'll bring event specific props for you.
For backdrops, we have an array of sparkly colored backgrounds, and we can even do green screen. If you want to provide your own or have a special request, just contact us.
We've had as many as 7 people! But we find that 4 is the most before it gets too uncomfortable or people start getting cropped out.
We like to keep things simple. Our footprint is smaller so things like large backdrops, lots of lighting equipment, and tables full of props and costumes are not needed. Plus we don't need to pay for gas to get to your event (usually).
Don't get us wrong, we love photo booth companies that go all out with their setups (our fridge is full of pics from photobooths!) But we think the memories are just as great with our unique setup. And the photos turn out just as great!
