White House Black Market #Beatofyourdrum Instagram campaign

White House Black Market knows that its customers love to connect with their brand. So the marketing department designed an Instagram campaign titled # Beat of your Drum and asked ladies starting with its employees at corporate headquarters to share what inspires them. We were hired to capture the essence of each employee and I think we combined great camera work with beautiful women and a few men to photograph. I love the simplicity of the set and the softness of the photos. PhotoMagicEvents at www.photomagicevents.com  specializes in Greenscreen and photo booths  but we love when we get a chance to do portrait work. ED0810144134 ED0810154420 ED0810092905 ED0810154100

Captured the Moment we Saw the World Record Black Grouper

world record black grouper


Were we surprised to see this fish come out of the boat as PhotoMagicEvents was photographing the fishing boats participating in the 3rd annual Ronald McDonald House Charities Offshore Rodeo Fishing Tournament on June 6th in Fort Myers Beach, Florida. Each year, we provide photos with a branded overlay for each fisherman as a gift from the tournament organizer. This year the photos had greater significance as Team Stackin Scales/Sunset Air took home first place and a fisherman on the boat, Alex Newman, caught a 124.18 lb possible world record black grouper. We knew it was a big fish when 4 guys could not lift it out of the boat. http://ftw.usatoday.com/2015/06/fisherman-world-record-grouper

Photo Booth Experiences are a Wedding Hit!

Screen shot 2014-10-01 at 3.21.24 PMThere is no denying it! Photo Booths are a big hit at wedding receptions! Not only do they give your guests a fun photo experience but your guests go home with a lasting memory of your big day. Remember to have lots of props and position the booth where the action is! I still have the photo from my first photo booth experience at Spencer’s Bar Mitzvah framed in my home. I still look at that picture and the very fond memories of that event are as real as they were then. I remember our time spent with dear friends who live far away, what I wore, how great I looked 20lbs thinner and of course,  the over the top decor and food. Check out PhotoMagicEvents to see how creative you can be with a photo experience for your next event. Your guests will love it and so will you when you get to see how much fun they had sharing your big day!

Photo Booths add extra fun for employees during Customer Service Week at Comcast

Screen shot 2014-10-01 at 2.59.24 PMComcast gave their employees the opportunity to “ham it up” at their annual Customer Service Week. The Guppy POD open style photo booth with an instant branded photo gave each employee a lasting memory of the week. With a carnival theme and lots of props, employees had a blast taking both individual, group and team photos. Adding to the excitement, the Guppy POD was able to print Instagram photos taken by employees on their smart phones throughout the week and sent to a unique hashtag. We love the Guppy because of its small footprint and its accommodation for larger group photos.  The Guppy is also  social media friendly allowing guests to email, facebook and twitter their photos directly from the booth. Visit PhotoMagicEvents for more info or to reserve your date.

Give your employee, guest or attendee a photo booth experience and gift they will keep and remember forever!

Guests had fun playing out their “alternate” career choices with PhotoMagicEvents Green Screen backgrounds at the NCH Hospital Ball

Screen shot 2014-10-01 at 2.59.47 PMGuests had the chance to play out. When I grew up. I wanted to be…” at the NCH Hospital Ball held at the Ritz Carlton Beach Resort on Saturday. With lots of props and four backgrounds to choose from, the guests had a blast with the #1 interactive event activity. Best yet, they received their pictures on the spot! First National Bank who sponsored the Green Screen Photo Service powered by PhotoMagicEvents  had their logo on the picture which guests will keep for many years and in many cases, display at home or in their office. Unique, branded event photos are fast becoming the #1 most effective way to associate your brand with current and prospective customers and/or supporters. For non-profit organizations, it’s an effective way to bring new sponsors into your organization. If you want to take your event to the next level with an interactive event photo experience, visit www.photomagicevents.com to see what photo service will work best for your next event.

Instagram adds more fun to the Photo Booth Experience

004-1024x682050-682x1024Photomagicevents is so happy we have a photo booth option with social skills!  The Guppy Pod photo booth takes photos at the booth but also is an instagram print station. This past weekend at the National Association of Wedding Professional Annual Convention held at the Sanibel Harbour Marriott Resort, attendees had a blast yucking it up at the booth. Not only that, they were able to take photos during the three days with their smartphones and send them to the photo booth to be printed in the NAWP branded frame. Attendees loved having a print of their instagram pictures and the organizers were equally pleased to have all the attendee’s photos. Reminds me of putting disposable cameras on the tables and asking guests to use them. The instagram option is also great for weddings. Friends and family who are unable to attend can still surprise the bride and groom by sending a congratulatory photo to the wedding reception via the photo booth. Our attendant prints the pictures and puts them in the guestbook for the happy couple to enjoy. Photo technology has come a long way!

We LOVED that Dress!

1fef699a-32e8-40a6-ad7a-1f8f5ed91d68-1024x682All the lovely ladies in Collier County came out on Saturday night to support Love that Dress and the PACE Center for Girls based in Immokalee, Florida. Donations throughout the year yielded a large collection of gently worn dresses from casual to wedding gowns. The dressing rooms had long lines and many dresses went to new homes. Club music provided by Robert McDonald added to the festive atmosphere and the Norman Love chocolates are always a great reason to ditch the diet. With dress sales and a great silent auction, it looked like lots of money was raised for a great cause. For those not aware, Pace is an organization that gives girls an opportunity for a better future with education, counseling, training and advocacy. Check them out by visiting www.pacecenter.org. We had fun giving guests a photo memory they will keep with our Guppy POD Photo booth.

We had a Blast at Bridal Blast Summer 2013

41-682x1024 444a3d2d-fdba-4396-af71-c90047174c7a-1024x682Bridal Blast Summer 2013 took place at Germain Arena in Estero, Florida on Sunday and was very well attended. I was so impressed with the quality of vendors who went all out to present the best SWFL has to offer the wedding couple. SWFL is a top destination wedding location! I saw my friends from Artichoke and Company who brought yummy samplings of their gourmet fare. I definitely enjoyed their crabcake appetizer. Barbara from Masquerade was there with a wonderful display of what you can do to decorate with balloons. Very elegant and I believe less expensive than fresh flowers.

Our staff had such fun talking and demonstating our photo booth services  to prospective Brides and Grooms at Germain Arena on Sunday. Jodi, who recently got engaged, really related to the attendees talking up our services with such enthusiasm. You know Jodi’s  having a photo booth at her wedding!  Our Kingdom Photo Booth which is the fatest photo booth on the market was a huge hit and so was our Guppy POD photo booth. The Guppy advantage is its open style and the Instagram feature. Not only can guests take photos with smartphones and send them to the booth for printing but  friends and family who can’t attend your wedding can also send photos to the booth. Imagine looking at your photo scrapbook and being surprised at who sent you a photo message!

We also worked with the show’s presenter, The National Association of Wedding Professionals, to give attendees a Greenscreen  photo op on the cover of PEOPLE Magazine against a photo of the Naples Pier at Sunset. A framable memory of a day spent looking for all the ingredients for the PERFECT Wedding!

Spirit of 45 Event

Screen shot 2014-10-01 at 3.06.55 PMPhotoMagicEvents was  honored to be a part of the Spirit of 45 event held at the Naples Hilton last Saturday. There were over 300 veterans, family and friends who came together to honor the Spirit of 45 generation who bravely fought on behalf of our country and the world. I was moved by WWII veterans in uniform particularly Robert (pictured) with his trumpet. We provided a 5×7 commemorative photo to each guest with our Green Screen Photo Service. The guests photographed and placed in front of the American Flag were just beautiful if I may say so. Govenor Rick Scott and his wife, Ann were in attendance and took photographs with many of the guests. To view the photos: Go to  http://photomagic.smugmug.com/Other/Spirit-of-45-2013
