After thinking about adding a photobooth for over two years, we’ve finally settled on one that we feel produces the best photo quality. Earlier today (October 31), we ordered the booth, and it will be here in 3-4 weeks! We are already booking dates so if you are interested in an event, let us know. For more information, please explore the links at the top of this page.
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. I’ve posted the photos to: http://www.culverphotos.com/2014_bride_blu

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:

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 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.

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:
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 had the photo booth at Culver Academy’s Beason Halloween Dance. The students really enjoyed having the photo booth at their party. As always, there were some great custumes and the event was a lot of fun. I’ve posted the photos to:
This weekend, to help support Culver’s EMS, I had the photo booth set up for Culver’s 1st annual Fall Festival. The weekend was a great success for the inaugural year that brought a lot of people to town. In addition to the photo booth, there were things to do for people of all ages. I’ve posted the photos from the photo booth to:
If you are in town this weekend, be sure to visit Culver’s 1st Annual Fall Festival. As part of the activities, we’ll have the photo booth downtown Saturday 10-6 and Sunday 10-2. The photo booth will be open to everyone for $2/person with half the proceeds going to Culver’s EMS. Have fun while supporting our local ambulance service!

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-

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.

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.

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.

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.

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
Last night, the photo booth was set up for the Saturday dinner for returning 25th year class which took place at the navel building on Culver’s lakefront.
I wouldn’t have believed it if I hadn’t seen it, but below is proof that we managed to have 15 ADULTS in the booth. As you can tell, the booth was a hit. I’ve posted the photos to- http://www.culverphotos.com/culver_1988.
Sorry for being late with getting this information out. With Reunion Weekend at Culver Academy, I was busy.
Last Friday, we took the photo booth to Plymouth, Indiana for Jefferson Elementary School’s annual Fun Fair. Having never had a photo booth at their carnival, the photo booth was a huge success with a line the entire evening. The kids loved the photo booth and the props and the staff and volunteers were gracious and helped throughout the evening.

Last night was a late one for the photo booth with Oregon Davis High School’s After Prom in Hamlet, Indiana. With the event starting at 11:30 PM CST and going until 2:30 AM CST, Ginny and I were a little tired by the end. (Here in Culver, being on EST, the event didn’t finish until 3:30 AM our time.) Regardless of us being tired, the students were great, very well behaved and they seemed like they really enjoyed the photo booth. Some, I think, went through the booth 8-10 times with different friends and props.
The photos are posted to here for free download.
I’m sorry but there appears to be some confusion about where the photo booth will be this weekend. I WILL NOT have the booth at Culver Academies’ Senior Dinner Dance. (I proposed it to the committee and they decided not to have it. I’m not sure why. Sorry.) The booth will be at Oregon Davis’s After Prom (very late Friday night) and Culver Community High School’s After Prom (late Saturday night).
