Photo-booths at weddings have become a common request by clients who want playful memories with their friends and families. It seems like within a few years, photo-booths became a popular feature of the wedding receptions, birthday parties, corporate events, and even grad nights. It gives people the chance to cut loose and have a little fun in front of the camera. Props, effects, and remote triggers help the imagination run wild.
The newest trend – a slow motion photo booth.

How They Shot It
Modern Romance, a Vancouver-based wedding video company, thought they would try their hand at the slow-motion trend with a Hollywood-style FX twist. They proposed the project to a couple a week before their wedding. The couple got all excited and agreed to book our Slow Motion Booth for their wedding.
We wanted … to raise the bar even more with higher frame rate, a black background, bigger group of guests, and crazier props.
And best part is, since Vancouver is known as the North Hollywood, the company incorporated some film special effect props, such as breakaway beer bottles, and devices like the wind-blower and confetti machine.
Sony FS700 Camcorder with kit lens
six 4′ 4-bank Kino Flos
12×12′ Bounce on top
12×12′ Black Muslin background with C-stands, frames, and combi stands
Special FX props and equipment include confetti machine, fan, breakaway bottles, party poppers, silly string, balloons, glitter, and baby powder.
Thanks to Modern Romance for sharing their project with us.
Until Next Time . . .
