Over the past four years, we’ve had the privilege of witnessing firsthand the joy and memories only a photo booth can create. From weddings to birthdays to anniversaries to public events, the laughter and happiness our booths produce are unmatched by other event features. This, combined with how special photo booth pictures turn out, help make memories that live on forever. We like our social media channels, but Snapchat updates disappear, Instagram and Facebook posts get buried in a timeline, and smartphone selfies get lost in the thousands of other pictures on our memory cards. Photo booth shots, however, are printed, then hung on refrigerators and cubicle walls to be enjoyed multiple times a day, months, years.
And as much as we dig creating long-lasting memories, we’re fond of our magnificent city, too. Through all the wonderful clients we’ve had the pleasure of working with, we’ve always felt like there are many other great happenings that haven’t had the opportunity to feature a photo booth. These are events we LOVE going to. Events that don’t charge a door fee and aren’t necessarily in it for a profit. Events like Fourth Friday that highlight arts and culture along downtown Tampa’s Riverwalk; Flicks + Food Trucks, where we get to experience the region’s gourmet restaurants-on-wheels alongside a free movie; or Rock the Park, which invites us to picturesque Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park to sit, jam and stay awhile. Events that just exist to exist, simply for locals and visitors looking to enjoy the view.
Tampa has given us so much that we want to give back. We also wanted to show the world how much love we have as a community. This is why we started the #TPALove Movement. We help produce, capture and share smiles, spotlighting the amount of beauty that Tampa truly has — because each and every one of us is beautiful.
Based on availability, we’ll feature our photo booths at Tampa-centric events that are free for guests to attend under the #TPALove name. Furthermore, we’ll never, ever charge guests to use a booth. While we unfortunately won’t be able to do every event, the likelihood of us being on site will increase if it’s an outdoor happening, where our air-conditioned Photo Booth on Wheels can join the fun. We’ll control all the design work and everything will be hashtagged with #TPALove to further this global movement via social media.
Again, all photo sessions will be free for guests and available to them in either print or digital form. Some, if not all, of the amazing smiles we capture for this project will be saved and used down the road for something that displays the #TPALove in our community.
