A popular feature at every wedding reception these days is the very fun and trendy photo booth. In this Married in the Mitten we talk to the founder and Sean Mackey, owner of the Magic Shuttle Bus, explains how they turned a classic Volkswagen van into the perfect photo op.
“It’s a Volkswagen passenger car, fully restored in 1971, that we take with us to weddings and set up as a photo booth for guests to use at a wedding reception,” said Mackey. The idea of reinventing the van as a portable photo booth wasn’t always planned. They bought it first to carry the bride, groom, and wedding reception. “We thought it was cool … but it sounded like cans rattling.” After tossing around a few ideas, they decided to give it a new purpose as a photo booth.
“When we set it up, the photo sign will appear and light up so you can use it during the day or at night. Then guests can choose from a range of props in the tailgate. After getting into the van, they touch a screen and four or five photos are taken of them. ”
The Volkswagen photo booth is not only intended for weddings, but can be used for any event such as company celebrations, family celebrations or everything in between.
