CGM Photography has a Photo Booth!

    Zachary “Talley-Man” Talley Benefit- Photo Booth

      Yesterday, we traveled to Elkhart, Indiana with the photo booth for a benefit for Zachary “Talley-Man” Talley. Zach is a young 15 year-old who suffers from Ataxia-telangiectasia, a rare genetic disease that attacks children, causing progressive loss of muscle control, immune system problems, and a high rate of cancer. Zach is confined to a wheelchair. The benefit was put on by a local Boy Scout troop that Zach is a member of. They hoped to raise enough money to purchase a handicap-accessible van and some much needed home remodeling to better accommodate Zach and his wheelchair. The spagetti dinner benefit was well attended. They had a silent auction, a bake sale, and numerous other activities that helped raised close to $6000 for Zach and his family. We donated 100% of the proceeds from the photo booth to Zach. It was nice to see so many people in Zach’s community supporting him and his family, and we were happy to be a part of it.

      I’ve posted the photos from the event to: http://www.culverphotos.com/3_30_14_zach

      Lincoln Elementary School Carnival Photo Booth

        This past Friday, I returned to Lincoln Elementary School in Warsaw, Indiana, for their annual school carnival. After being there with the photo booth last year, all the parents, teachers and kids wanted me to return again this year. Lincoln Elementary will always hold a special place in my heart as they were one of the first events that I booked when I purchased my photo booth last year and everyone associated with that school is so nice. I hope that will continue inviting me back in future years.

        IEA Horse Show Banquet Photo Booth

          On Saturday, I had the photo booth at Culver Academy’s Penske Center for the annual IEA Horse Show banquet which takes place the night before the Regional Competition. Having never had a photo booth at the event before, the booth was very popular throughout the night. Both the parents and students enjoyed the booth and most went in several times.

          Heather and Justin Wedding Photo Booth

            On Saturday, we took the photo booth to the wedding of Heather and Justin which took place at the beautiful setting of the Bourbon Back Forty. The photo booth was popular throughout the day with most of the guests getting their photos taken in the booth.

            Claypool Elementary Sock Hop

              On Friday, I traveled to Claypool, Indiana with the photo booth for their Elementary School carnival. Their theme this year was a sock hop that had great music, slicked hair, and lots of poodle skirts. The carnival itself had activities throughout the school though the central spot was in the gym where the photo booth was. The photo booth was busy from start to finish with several hundred students and some adults enjoying themselves in the booth.

              Culver Community Spring Fling

                On Friday, we had a photo booth at the Culver Community Elementary School Spring Fling. The carnival had a patriotic theme and was well attended with a band and activities for the kids. The photo booth was a huge hit with a line most of the night. Kids always love playing with the props and being goofy in the booth.

                Bride Blu Photo Booth

                  On Sunday, I took the photo booth to the Blue Chip Casino for the annual Bride Blu wedding show. The show was extremely well attended with close to 400 brides. With 40′ of vendor space, we had the largest and probably the most popular booth at the show. (I was asked 2 days before the show to occupy an empty booth next to mine so I took extra tables and tons of props.) We had 5 or 6 brides in line for the booth most of the show.

                  Puttin on the Glitz Photo Booth

                    Last week, I was asked to have the photo booth at Plymouth’s Tri Kappa’s Annual Dinner. The theme for the night was Putting on the Glitz which was a huge hit with most people dressing in 20′s era clothing. Between the outfits and the props that I had with us, we got some great, goofy photos in the photo booth. I’ve posted the photos to:

                    Connecting Points Photo Booth

                      A couple of weeks ago, I was asked by the Culver Boys and Girls Club and Culver Academies to get individual photos of the kids in the club for their joint venture, Connecting Points, between the two groups. In stead of carrying a camera and a backdrop, I decided the kids would have more fun with the photo booth. I’ve posted the photos to:

                      New Year’s Eve Photo Booth

                        New Year’s Eve was a big event for me and Culver Photo Booth. In addition to celebrating roughly a year in the photo booth business, I enjoyed a couple of firsts on New Year’s Eve. My first New Year’s party with the booth and my first event using a brand new second photo booth. To ring in the New Year, I had a photo booth at the Lakehouse Grill in Culver and at the Oakwood Resort in Syracuse. To view photos from events, please use the links below.

                        Culver Coffee Company- 10 Year – Photo Booth

                          Last night, I had the photo booth at The Culver Coffee Company for their 10-year anniversary party. It was a great event celebrating Dawn’s business surviving and thriving for 10 years here in Culver. There was the photo booth, live music, great food and even a Champaign toast. I’ve posted the photos to:

                            Last night, I had the photo booth in downtown Plymouth, Indiana for Fernbaugh’s Annual “Ladies Night Out” event. Fernbaugh’s does a great job at this event with lots of giveaways, great food, cocktails, and a lot of jewelry specials. The owners wanted the photo booth there to add to the fun of the evening which it did. I’ve posted the photos to:

                            Celebrating Life- Photo Booth

                              Two nights ago, I received, what seemed like at the time, an interesting request for the photo booth. I was asked if I could bring the photo booth to a wake on the following afternoon in Syracuse, Indiana.

                              Yesterday, I traveled to the beautiful Oakwood Resort in Syracuse and had the photo booth at my first wake. Though, at first, this seemed like the untraditional thing to do, now, in hindsight, I think it turned out to be a very nice tribute to a man who loved life and lived it to its fullest. Instead of mourning their loss of a loved one, the family wanted to celebrate his life with a get-together of friends and family to remember the joy and love that he brought into everyone’s life. And… after spending 3 hours talking to his friends and family, while watching a slideshow in the background, I truly believe the family gave their father a wake that he would have been happy about and enjoyed.

                              Along with my normal props, I had my Christmas props with me last night. The family had asked that I bring them. The man they were celebrating loved Christmas and had even won an ugly costume contest one holiday season. I’m told that he would have gotten a kick out of the naughty/nice hats, the reindeer antlers, and the elf hats.

                              Lastly, we had a photo of the gentleman that everyone took into the booth with them. It was a special way of getting one last photo with him.

                              I’ve posted the photos from photo booth of this special event to: http://www.culverphotos.com/celebrating_larry. I’m grateful I got to be part of the experience.

                                        Last night, I traveled to the Bourbon Back Forty, just north of Bourbon, Indiana, with the photo booth for the wedding of Dana and Joe. The photo booth was very popular with the wedding guests had a line most of the night. I’ve posted the photo to:

                                              This past Friday, Ginny and I took the photo booth to the wedding of Cory and Melissa at the beautiful Allure in La Porte, Indiana. The Ceremony and Reception were very classy with the  photo booth being a fun addition. Everyone had a great time having their photos taken in the booth. I’ve posted the photos to-

                                                This past weekend, I took the photo booth to the MYC (Maxinkuckee Yacht Club) Grease themed party. As people were already dressed in character, most people didn’t need the props. The booth was a huge hit with the guests with just about every one using it several times. I’ve posted the photos from the night to-

                                                    This weekend, I had the photo booth at Culver’s annual Lakefest which takes place in the town park located on beautiful Lake Maxinkuckee. The booth was a hit with visitors of all ages and was quite busy in the hours leading up to the fireworks. I’ve posted the photos from the weekend to-

                                                      Today Ginny and I took the photo booth to Argos, Indiana for their annual 4th-A-Bration celebration. We had a lot of fun as it was our first time to this event. The photo booth was a huge hit until a storm rolled in and shut things down.

                                                        I’ve uploaded the photos from the night to- http://www.culverphotos.com/final_ball_photo_booth

                                                        Culver Graduation Party- Photo Booth

                                                          Last night I was asked to have the photo booth at the graduation party for Culver Academy students: Brendan, Javier, Bryan, and Sam. Their collective party was a huge event held at the Culver Coffee Company with around 300 guests who attended throughout the evening. The photo booth was quite popular with both the students and adults enjoying themselves. For last night’s graduation party, we pulled out some of our newer props that the students hadn’t seen yet at our previous Culver Academy events. The new props were a big hit.

                                                          I’ve posted the photos for free downloads to- http://www.culverphotos.com/5_31_13_grad

                                                            Today, the Culver Boy and Girl Club kids wanted to surprise Cory Monnier, their director the past three years whose last day was today. The kids made a banner and cards for Cory. They also had cake and punch. Ginny chairs the Boy and Girl Club board so she wanted to attend the event and take the photo booth so that the kids could have their pictures taken with Cory and their friends. She also presented a plaque to Cory. We had a lot of fun. Props got scattered everywhere. Boa feathers were all over the floor. I think we may have had 30 kids wearing masks, hats, and other fun stuff at a time. It was hard to tell who was who behind all the costumes. In the end, though, the kids had a great time and they were able to spend some time having fun with Cory on his last day. Check out some of the funny pictures they took.

                                                            The photos are posted for free downloads to- http://www.culverphotos.com/5_24_13_cbgc

                                                              Today, we took the photo booth to the Culver Community Elementary school for the third graders’ Character day celebration. The kids do a parade through the town of Culver every year and stop along the way to chant the Character motto. Culver Kiwanis donates money to get the kids fun t-shirts. To help them celebrate, we took the photo booth so that all of the kids could get their pictures taken. The kids had a blast. We congratulate the kids for taking the time to learn about character and for proudly parading their knowledge. They will carry those lessons beyond the third grade, which we think is a great thing.

                                                              New Photo Booth Logo

                                                                Thank you to everyone who weighed in on our logo design for our photo booth business. Based on everyone’s input, we decided on the whimsical logo with a slight change to the glasses. (We made them red.) When we have a logo designed for CGM Photography, we’ll most likely go with a more traditional, serious logo. -Grant
