DIY PHOTO BOOTH LOVE | Pop Your Head In and Smile! | Photography by Elizabeth Messina

When I came across this fabulous idea, I immediately knew I had to post about it.  This is so right up my alley!  And I suspect it’s right up yours, too…

Elizabeth Messina – one of my absolute favorite photographers in the entire galaxy and beyond, and who has a blog that is almost as fabulous as its maker –  posted about these babies and it made me go insane for the idea in a clinical way.

How spectacular are those!  I would die for these kinds of photos of my family and friends.  I was talking about this with some friends recently; photo booths are a surefire way to get your guests to ham it up and, as I look at these, I can’t imagine a more beautiful way to capture the action!  Forget for a moment the simple fabric backdrops we know and love; this is a fully interactive wall, complete with three key points of head insertion!  (The double-entendre right there was NOT intentional, if you’re wondering.  Is it peculiar that I don’t feel like rephrasing, though?  I just don’t have the energy to be sufficiently appropriate right now.)

The smaller frames surrounding those that are empty hold photos of the bride’s and the groom’s families.  How wonderful is that?!  The bride, whose name is Kristen, added these family photos to this incredible work of art, created by Sasha Souza.  Do you love it like I do?  Well there are a couple more examples to check out over on Kiss the Groom!

Speaking of Elizabeth Messina, here’s a look at the kind of work she churns out, time after time.  Talk about a photographer with an eye for perfection…

The above and below are from the photo booth couple’s wedding!  Love it.  I am officially obsessed with brides who wear light jackets and feathered headgear on their wedding days.  Bold and beautiful.

By the way, if you decide to check out all the yumminess over on Kiss the Groom, you may notice a gorgeous pregnant woman dressed in black lace and a fedora.  If not, here’s the link.  Look at her belly button.  I pray to all that is holy that my belly button remains THAT FLAT when I am, one day, at that stage of pregnancy.  That is the flattest, most subtle belly button pop-out I’ve EVER SEEN.

Love all of this...
