June 13th was the last day of school for the State College Area school district. As kids were leaving their school buildings, a phrase was being chanted by the kids and teens from an Alice Cooper song, “School’s out for Summer!” At Gray’s Woods Elementary, kids were saying goodbye to their teachers and heading to State College’s Dairy Queen for a few hours of fun, photos and ice cream. Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths had their BIG camera ready for kids to say, “Hello Summer!”

State College’s Dairy Queen had Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths, Home Depot, games and coloring fun on hand for the Gray’s Woods Elementary kids to celebrate the beginning of summer vacation. Home Depot had kits for kids to build such as model airplanes, and Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths was indoors taking pictures of friends, families and teachers posing with various hats, boas, hand held props and glasses. Each group posing for a picture had the chance to pick one of four ‘Hello Summer’ border designs to offset their photo fun. The groups posed for four pictures and received a photo strip with their chosen photo border.

Froggy 101 was also doing a live broadcast featuring the fun that was available for kids celebrating the beginning of summer vacation. Froggy’s mascot, Froggy, was not camera shy. The mascot was quick to get behind the camera, try on a hat, pick a border and pose for a picture. Kids had an opportunity to also pose with Froggy behind the camera.

Dairy Queen was the big sponsor for the Gray’s Woods Elementary School ‘Hello Summer’ event. During the event, and later in the evening, Dairy Queen generously donated a portion of their proceeds to help the various programs sponsored at the Gray’s Woods Elementary School. It was a great day with the added dose of helping a local school!

Thank you Dairy Queen for inviting Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths to be a part of the the DQ Gray’s Woods Elementary Hello Summer event. Have an awesome summer!

 

 

 

Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths recently celebrated the marriage of John H. ‘Jay’ Herrington and Sherrill Byron at Marrara’s Mountain Lodge in Port Matilda, Pennsylvania. This is the second trip down the aisle for the bride and groom who were previously married to each other and now are remarried to each other again. Jay and Sherrill call their remarriage ‘Take 2’ which could be seen on the various keepsakes guests received throughout the night. It is too bad the song “Reunited” by Peaches & Herb was not played that night because the lyrics fit the joy the couple felt being reunited again in marriage.

Marrara’s Mountain Lodge was the perfect setting for the day. Jay and Sherrill did not have a traditional cake to cut and pass out to guests. Instead, they had three varieties of Dam Donuts on hand for people to partake and enjoy. Guests were able to eat and enjoy the unrivaled taste of Strawberry Shortcake, Blueberry Crumble, and Death By Chocolate donuts.

Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths was setup near the fireplace for guests to come, grab some props, and pose for pictures. Once guests were done dining on some fabulous food, they quickly walked over to the photo booth area to begin creating their dazzling ensembles. They began trying on flamboyant hats that would set the stage for their photo session. Many grabbed boas and masks along with hand held props to generate spectacular pictures. Young and old alike were ready to mug for the camera. Even Kermit the Frog was on hand to grin for the camera with the bride, groom and guests. Guests also had the opportunity to serenade the newlyweds with private messages and photo booth photos in the couple’s memory book. Later, Jay and Sherrill could look back and reminisce about the exciting day while viewing the messages along with the pictures!

Thank you Jay and Sherrill for allowing Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths be a part of your big ‘Take 2’ day!

 

 

 

Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths had a marvelous evening celebrating the marriage of Jen Berkebile and Erik Schmalz at General Potter Farm on Saturday, June 2nd. Jen and Erik were definitely meant to be as they buzzed among guests, mugged behind the camera and danced the night away with And We Danced DJ Entertainment‘s awesome musical mixes. Smiles were always on their faces. The couple were also wonderful while behind the camera. They both have a great sense of humor and are loved by family members and their guests.

The couple were joined in marriage by their friend Joe Jividen at the Rhoneymeade Sculpture Garden & Arboretum. The bridesmaids sported bright poppy red dresses, while the groomsmen donned blue suits with poppy red ties. The bride was gorgeous in a beautiful taupe colored dress, while the groom wore a handsome blue suit. The bridal party were special friends from school and family members. No one was shy that night as they stood in line waiting for their turn at the photo booth. The bride was definitely number one that night as she sported the hand held number one prop behind the camera with her chums. The groom wasn’t far behind as he grinned along with his cronies and did some spectacular poses for the camera.

The photo booth had a never ending line as the night progressed. Young and old were not bashful when picking out hats, props and glasses. No one was chicken flashing behind the camera. Lotsa Laffs really means lots of laughs, and the guests were sure living up to our name. No one wanted to see the night end, but everyone had spectacular picture mementos to take home and reminisce about Jen and Erik’s walk down the aisle.

Thank you Jen and Erik for allowing Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths capture some spectacular, funny and striking pictures that will leave everyone fondly smiling and reminiscing about your wonderful day!

 

 

 


 

 

Your wedding is three weeks away. Last minute details with the caterer, baker and DJ are now complete, and you are ready to soon have your big day. You thought that you were all set with your vendors, but your friend has said you should really get a photo booth. But isn’t that why you got a photographer? No, a photographer takes all the formal pictures at your wedding and reception. A photo booth allows you to get informal fun shots! Later, you can look back at the pictures, laugh, giggle and reminisce about the day.

Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths is able to maximize your fun!!! Even with a short lead time, Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths will provide an amazing experience for your wedding or special event. Under tight time constraints, we are able to design the highest quality border artwork for your event. Custom designs are always an option if our library doesn’t have the border that matches your event. Remember, we have the largest border library around, and we do not use outside vendors to create our borders. Our graphic design capabilities allow us to create all of our borders from scratch. Contact us about our vast border library and graphic design possibilities. Simply put, our borders and huge selection cannot be found anywhere else!

Our BIG camera design is aesthetically pleasing and will only enhance the surroundings of your event. Unlike those boxy metal photo booths that have no character, the Lotsa Laffs photo booth is visually appealing to the eye. Is your event hall concerned about the amount of space your vendors are taking up for the event? Our booth can adapt its size to the environment of your venue. Our props are ergonomically situated so that you will never have to reach on the ground for props.

So, if you get that last minute urge or nudge to do the right thing and get a photo booth for your event, please give us a call, text or email and let’s make weddings and special events fun again!!!

 

Amazing Border Designs!!!

Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths was part of Penn State’s Society of Women Engineers (SWE), Association of Women in Computing (AWC), Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) and American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) 2018 Semi Formal held at the State College Days Inn. And We Danced DJ Entertainment provided the music for the event. The theme for the event was Under the Sea.

The young men and women decorated the room with mermaids, sea creatures, dancing bubbles, balloons and colorful wall coverings of the beautiful turquoise sea. The guests were given a bag of colorful turquoise jellybeans alongside multicolored Swedish fish to snack on during the event or afterwards. Each guest took home a screen printed glass marking the theme and the four engineering societies sponsoring the event.

Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths had Under the Sea props available for guests. Friends and couples picked out their favorite props, stepped behind the camera, and took four pictures with various poses. If guests were not waiting for a chance to mug for the camera, they were on the dance floor dancing. Club lights were flashing along with the dancing bubbles from the bubble machine. If Ariel, Sebastian, and Flounder were visiting State College, they would have enjoyed the festive underwater atmosphere that night!

SWE, ASCE and AIChE are professional engineering societies open to engineering students at Penn State. SWE is open to all women engineers. ASCE and AIChe are engineering societies for Civil or Chemical engineering professionals respectively. AWC is an organization promoting more women in the fields of Computer Science, Computer Engineering and Electrical Engineering. The four organizations meet throughout the school year on the Penn State campus. Check out their websites for where and when they are meeting to join and learn more about them.

Thank you for an awesome time! Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths hopes to be a part of future events with each of your organizations. See you next year!

 

 

Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths was proud to be part of LABash 2018. LABash is an annual student led Landscape Architecture conference that was held this year at Penn State University, State College, PA. Students and professionals traveled from Canada, the United States and all over the world to attend the conference. Lotsa Laffs was on hand to snap some awesome pictures of the LABash attendees along with Land8 and Anova photo booth sponsors as they held a Happy Hour at Indigo.

Take a look at the great 4×6 prints below from the LABash Happy Hour event!  A festive and happy crowd came ready to party hard!  The Indigo staff was really great to work with that evening.  Many group photos were taken with large groups of people.

In 2 ½ hours, Lotsa Laffs was cranking out a great deal of 4×6 prints for the LABash guests. The attendees laughed when we apologized for the bright lights when taking a picture, since the lighting was really low at Indigo. The attendees had fun grabbing props, using boas, putting on hats and glasses, and doing comical faces for the camera. No one photo bombed any shots, but groups became bigger and bigger behind the camera. The LABash guests, Anova, and Land8 were sensational photo booth participants when having fun in front of the camera.

Many guests filled the dance floor while lights flashed and the Indigo DJ played familiar tunes. Everyone was laughing and smiling while having a spectacular time relaxing. At 9:30pm, the LABash Happy Hour was put to rest. Before this witching hour, guests quickly ran to the photo booth to grab some more keepsakes of their friends before the night was over.

Thank you Anova, Land8, and LABash 2018 for allowing Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths to be part of your fun and remarkable event!

 

The East Coast was calling for a massive blizzard the other night with airports and roads closing preparing for the avalanche of snow, but Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths was out on the road heading to Pennian Bank’s annual Workers Appreciation dinner being held at the Millerstown Moose Lodge #925. State College was getting snow, but Millerstown was only receiving rain. The illusionist for the night had to cancel coming in since all flights on the East Coast were canceled. Scott E. Fritz, Pennian Bank’s President and CEO, was telling the employees that there would be no entertainment that night, but we quickly told the crowd that Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths will be the entertainment that night!

Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths right away started to draw a crowd of people ready to have some fun behind the camera. Laughing, joking and photo bombing began to occur. Everyone was having such a great time. Four photos were taken by each group much fun in between each picture. Hats, boas, props, glasses and masks were quickly grabbed, placed on and replaced for the next picture. People forgot that a storm was brewing outside because they were having so much fun inside.

The Moose Lodge had a spectacular dinner planned for the employees. The staff were on their toes keeping up with the hungry Pennian Bank employees, but others were having fun having so much mugging for the camera. Even after eating, people were lining up for pictures. Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths was having so much fun helping people find some awesome gear to put on before posing for the camera.

As Scott Fritz began to distribute awards to his employees, he told everyone he would be brief so everyone can make it home in time before the storm hit. Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths was saying goodbye to the Pennian Bank employees as we quickly gathered our gear and readied to hit the road. They wished us a safe trip back to State College while we wished them a safe trip home that night.

As we were heading back to State College, the temperatures tethered between 32 and 35 degrees Fahrenheit, but Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths made it back to State College without any difficulties. At the end of the night, we were huddled in our homes hoping the East Coast and especially the Pennian Bank employees were home showing off their photos to their family members.

 

Oh Those Photo Strips!!!

 

Those Beautiful Photo Strips!!!

Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths was part of the week long State College Dairy Queen’s 10th Anniversary celebration leading up to their official anniversary on February 6th. The dining area was aligned with pictures from the past 10 years. Each day was set aside with an awesome treat for the day, reminiscing or special day to have fun with the kids or to treat your significant other with a DQ meal and ice cream treat. It was great to see the many faces that manned the counters and birthday parties in the last 10 years.

Lotsa Laffs was on hand on February 3rd as DQ held a DQ Children’s Day. Games were held inside along with a magician performing magic tricks for patrons. Kids had a chance to win some awesome ice cream treats playing hockey and fishing for ducks. Parents alongside their kids mugged for some neat pictures with Lotsa Laff’s.  Lotsa Laffs made some gorgeous custom photo strip borders to help Dairy Queen celebrate the week’s festivities.

The State College Dairy Queen’s official anniversary was on February 6th. Many people stopped by along with QWIK Rock and Lotsa Laffs to wish the folks a Happy 10th Anniversary. Everyone had a piece of ice cream cake to celebrate their official 10th anniversary. The ice cream was a treat on the cold snowy day, but the warmth inside made up for the cold winter blues outside. Lotsa Laffs had the opportunity to get Ben Lerner and Don Boller to smile for the camera. Ben walked away saying that this photo needs to be posted for all to see. We even had QUIK Rock’s Diana Stapleford (general manager), Drew Shannon (radio personality), Michael Stapleford (Owner/President) and two interns mugging behind the camera.

Congratulations to Dairy Queen of State College on this big milestone! Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths thanks you for allowing us to be part of your celebration days. It was great to see our strips appearing on your walls commemorating the past ten years.  We look forward to providing our photo booth at DQ Miracle Treat Day in July!!

 

Happy 10th Anniversary State College PA Dairy Queen!!!

 

What A Party It Was!!!

 

Did you know that Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths excels at capturing family portraits at events? Recently a bride-to-be told us that she didn’t want to have photos with guests using props in her guest book. Instead, she wanted normal pictures of her guests with their signatures to remember the day. Lotsa Laffs mentioned that her guests could take pictures without props at her wedding reception, and they would have a family portrait as a wedding favor for the event. The bride loved the idea and booked Lotsa Laffs for her wedding.

Family Portraits at your event with Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths include 4×6 photos of guests (without props) arriving at the reception. Guests place one portrait picture with their well-wishes in a portrait guest book, and the other is their own to keep as a wedding favor.  Everyone loves the idea of a family photo without the hassle of scheduling an appointment with a photographer. They walk away with a wedding favor that is never forgotten.  Brides and grooms love our family portrait favors and regard them as an enhanced part of their big day.  Family portraits can also be sent out to many social media platforms directly from our photo booths.  Enlargements of the portraits can be ordered any time after the event.

Later on at your special event, we open the photo booth for hilarious fun for your guests WITH PROPS!  Your guests will be delighted to have some fun with hats, glasses and other props while mugging for the camera and receiving traditional photo strips as additional favors. At the end of the evening, everybody will be passing their favors around for others to see and admire. 

This is an absolutely marvelous idea for any event be it a small family affair or a large corporate event.   Family Portraits at your event with Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths can greatly enhance your event!  Call or text Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths at 814-380-1355 or email us at info@lotsa-laffs.com to discuss using Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths as your portrait taker at your next event!

 

We can open the photo booth for hilarious fun WITH PROPS, later in the evening after family portraits!

Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths had a great time at the Nittany Lion Inn on December 2nd with Penn State’s Graduate and Professional Student Association as they held their annual Winter Gala. This is the third year we have had the pleasure of working with this organization, and they know how to party and have a great time!

After dinner, guests were eager to dance to the grooves of And We Danced DJ Entertainment and pose for the camera. Guests were eagerly grabbing hats and props while mugging for their picture at the photo booth. Many people made sure to take a picture with their significant other. Then the tide changed. Groups started to build with friends trying to outdo each other with the hilarious props! We were laughing so hard as people squished behind the camera. Photo bombing was the norm later in the night as guests kept the hilarity soaring. No one wanted to leave at the end of the night. We have to wait until next year to party again with these fine people.

Penn State’s Graduate & Professional Student Association’s 2017 Winter Gala was a roaring success! Each year is better than the last! Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths enjoys working with them each year. Can’t wait for 2018! See you next December!!!

Hey – It’s Down This Way To The Right!

Excellent Smiles!

Loads Of Fun!

Sure Beats Watching TV!
