we were so fortunate to have a photo booth at our wedding (thanks to my in laws!). it was hands down one of the best wedding decisions we made…
I knew from the get go I wanted photoboxLA. they’re a husband & wife team who started up their photo booth rental after their own wedding at the smog shoppe (read more here). I mean, come on – I couldn’t resist! even better – you could totally customize your photo strip – the direction of photos, color, font & phrase.
of course, it was puffin who came up with ‘I got my smog checked at james & roxy’s wedding’.
there’s honestly nothing better than seeing huge groups of your friends and family piling behind the camera with the most ridiculous props and costumes on their head. not to mention going through all of the photos after the fact.
totally 100% worth it.
just when I thought I couldn’t be more obsessed over our wedding photographer mary (from floataway studios), after seeing a sneak peek of our recent engagement photos – I am down right in love. can’t wait to get my paws on the rest of them soon…

right now I feel like oprah, where I am about to tell you about one of my new favorite things, and wish I could plant a million of them under your chairs and shit…
fujifilm’s instax mini camera. guys. it’s so damn fun. I hate to admit that puff actually got me this camera for xmas, but I didn’t open or use it until we moved three months later. horrible…I know.
we keep this handy little instant camera at our ‘mini bar/game shelf’ next to our kitchen. it’s great entertainment busting it out to capture random moments and then watching it develop. the size of the photos are also fun (2.13″ x 3.4″) – and as you continue to take photos they pile up like a stack of business cards (yet way less boring, and far more precious). the film is a tad pricey, but is comparable to the cost of polaroid film back in the day (about a buck a photo).
…but to have a little handheld photo booth at your disposal? totally worth it.
can I just go back to this moment on the cabin deck in big bear…eating puff’s blueberry pancakes that I coaxed him into making with adorable little mountain mugs of coffee?
it’s the little things in life.
there’s just something about being out of your own country. makes you feel like a bit of an adventurer, and pulls you out of that little bubble you call ‘home’.
my mom was apparently cleaning something out- and stumbled across some old photos from when I was in Europe 7 years ago (gesh- that’s scary to type). funny that she emailed them to me right when I return from another trip. the first gem was in Florence, and the second in the Austrian alps <- total bad ass I know.
