It’s a wrap! What a way to kick off the 2017 wedding season, working with some extremely talented wedding industry peeps to put on The Bash this past weekend! If you haven’t heard of this, The Bash is a very special wedding event in Calgary put up by our friends Shannon, Sarah and Natalie to showcase Calgary’s most innovative and trend setting wedding vendors.

Now Booking Booth Bus

sbadminAnnouncement

VW Photo Booth

Earlier this year, we made a small announcement about Booth Bus, a project we have been working on for the last two years. Booth Bus is the result of three things we love so much – cars, photography and food trucks. We thought it would be so nice to be able to install a photo booth in a vintage VW Bus and drive it around town, doing outdoor events.

Well, here it is! We are excited to tell everyone that we are now booking events for Booth Bus, our vintage VW photo bus.

Booth Bus started life as a 1970 VW Westfalia Campmobile. There are plenty of other models to choose from but the Westfalia is the most famous and desirable of all of them. It had a full camper interior, bright windows all around and a roof that pops up. We are picky.  It took us more than a year (and one expensive failed attempt) of scouring BC and Alberta before we were were able to find a bus that was good enough for us. Our goal was to find a vehicle that is safe and reliable to travel all around Calgary and area, to your events without the risk of breaking down before getting there (we hate being late for events).

As soon as we found our bus, we immediately replaced every piece of the 46 year old interior with brand new oatmeal tweed fabric matched with brown vinyl. Every week, Wei would ignore client emails to work on the bus, making sure the things are just perfect.  We installed a photo booth unit with a 20 inch touch screen computer and high speed printer. The social media station was located in the hatch. We even made a huge lighted marquee sign to put on the roof for our events to make things more festive. There’s even a generator to power the camera in case your event is in an area with no power.  The whole process took about 6 months and now it’s totally awesome!

We did our first event a few weeks ago at Marda Loop’s Indulge 2016 event. It was a hit! Everyone had so much fun jumping into the vintage VW to snap photos. At one point, we had eight people crammed in there, body parts hanging out.  It’s like a contest between different groups of people trying to figure out a way to fit as many bodies into it. Super hilarious!

If you are looking to do something really different for your outdoor event, give us a shout and let us tell you more about Booth Bus!
