As the Centre region has been battling the hot weather, Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths’ employees were discussing their most interesting photo booth events. There were many stories, but one event stood out. It happened on a very cold January night during a blizzard.

A nor’easter was forecast to hit the Centre region and drop a fierce amount of snow. The meteorologists predicted snowfall in the double digits ranging from 20 to 30 inches before the storm ended. Our client did not want to change the date of the event and reserved rooms for all the guests. The snowfall was supposed to start in the mid-morning with heavy accumulations beginning around 7:00 pm until the following morning.

Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths was asked to set up early due to the storm and later conditions. While setting up, venue workers were keeping abreast of the snowfall predictions. Many were looking out windows awaiting the first snowflake. Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths’ employees were also watching the weather and saw the first snowflake drop. Before leaving the venue, the snow had begun to accumulate in the parking lot and windshields. The falling snow was a heavenly sight from the inside, but the weather would soon worsen.

The event had a great deal of people present for the festivities, but a few tables were empty of party goers. Some stragglers came in a littler later due to poor road conditions. Everyone seemed upbeat and willing to have fun while the Centre region was experiencing a dampening amount of snowy conditions due to the nor’easter. People flocked to the Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths BIG camera for some memorable photos. They were eager to grab props and mug for the camera. Quite a few guests went outside and captured some snow as a prop for a few photo teasers.

While the guests were discussing spending time at the pool, Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths was tearing down, cleaning snow off their vehicle and preparing to battle the icy, cold and snowy conditions. Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths waved goodbye to the venue manager and began their homeward bound travels.

Only one lane was open on the roads Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths were traversing. The windshield wipers were freezing to the windshield. Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths had to stop a few times to clean the windshield and wipers. Not many people were traveling home that night. Snow plows were trying to make pathways for motorists on the major highways, but the other roads were heavily covered with snow. Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths was thankful when they pulled into their office parking lot and walked through the 2 feet of snow that had fallen since leaving for the event.

Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths followed the United States Postal Service creed that snowy, blustery, nor’easter night, “Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers (photo booth operators) from the swift completion of their appointed rounds!”

Seeing the people having fun and smiling behind the camera. It makes me feel good seeing the joy in people’s faces.

What is your favorite color?

If you had a pet, what kind would it be?

I do have a dog. She is the baby in the family that everyone loves to snuggle next to.

Today let’s meet one of Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths’ owners, Nancy.

Hello Nancy! What is your role at Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths?

I am an owner/operator of Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths in State College, PA. Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths is a woman-owned business.

When people ask “What do you do?” how do you answer?

I tell them I own and operate a photo booth company and a DJ business.

How did you come up with your name?

We wanted the photo booth name to be fun and exciting. Lotsa Laffs became our name, telling clients that we promote and excel at making an event really enjoyable with pictures.

Where is your favorite place in the world?

Being at an event with a Lotsa Laffs Photo Booth, of course!

What’s your favorite family tradition?

Having my family around the table.

Who would you most like to swap places with for a day?

I would swap places with my dog. She has it made!

What did you do before you did this?

I worked as an electrical engineer.

When and how did you get into the wedding industry?

When my husband and I started dating, I found out he had a DJ business with his friend while in high school. My husband saw I loved weddings and extensively knew the course of events. I saw his love for music and suggested getting back into the DJ business.

How did you get into the photo booth business?

I was DJing an event, and the client had a photo booth. The photo booth wasn’t a booth per se, but just a photographer’s camera on a tripod. I walked from that event away telling my husband I could do much better.

My husband and I worked together to completely design our booth, implement the right software and utilize entertaining props. Today, we have multiple open air photo booths that we have designed and continue to look at ways to make them better.

What is your favorite photo booth prop? 

My favorite photo booth prop is the plunger. I always laugh when I see what people do behind the camera with that particular prop.

What advice do you give to users of your photo booth? 

I always tell people to smile and have fun behind the camera!

For many people, planning an event involves finding a photographer able to capture those memorable moments in professional quality pictures that can be admired and treasured throughout the years. BUT every moment is important and worth capturing at an event. Once you have a photographer for those special and exceptional moments, it is a brilliant idea to enhance the experience of your event by adding Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths for your guests.

The photographer can be seen milling around your event capturing still images, but the talented photographer cannot capture every moment that occurs for posterity. When you add Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths to your event, you are inviting your guests to capture high quality moments that can be shared through email, social media or a stand alone photo. The photo booth offers your guests relaxed fun with an amazing variety of tools with picture props, a marvelous backdrop and software to elicit an amazing work of art that the photographer would never inspire. Unfortunately, a photographer is not able to offer those types of options to your guests. When people are given the right tools to work with, they find a new incitement in creating a picture to cherish and treasure for a lifetime.

A photo booth is a great magnet for kids! This is a huge entertainment factor for parents because kids are entertained. They have fun choosing picture props, hats, glasses and a variety of other fun props. When they get behind the camera, they have so much fun mugging for the camera. The pictures are memorable reminders of the joy of childhood, and their playfulness behind the camera.

These are just a few benefits that ensue by having a photo booth at your event especially if you want an epic event! Guests have fun and appreciate the entertainment of a photo booth along with the keepsake photo strip(s) they take home for joyful remembrance.

Interested in booking the coolest photo booth in the State College Area and beyond for your event? Contact us today to find out how Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths can make your wedding, graduation, prom or any event something to celebrate and remember for years to come!

Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths spent a delightful night with Pennian Bank’s employees as they celebrated their annual Worker Appreciation at a dinner held at the Millerstown Moose Lodge #925. This is the third year in a row that Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths had the honor of working with the wonderful employees of Pennian Bank. The Millerstown Moose Lodge created an awesome meal and a marvelous selection of desserts for the annual event. The lodge staff were consistently on their toes refilling the buffet for the Pennian employees.

After dinner, guests were treated to a thank you and a service gift to Pennian Bank employees that have been with the bank from five to longer years and a raffle event. For the raffle event, each employee was gifted approximately ten raffle tickets when entering the Moose Lodge. A person was chosen to randomly pick a raffle ticket from a box. The number was announced, and the lucky winner received a prize. If a winner was called again, they had a chance to kept their current prize or exchange it for the new prize. In the end, the Pennian Bank employees played a game with the victor winning the table flower display.

Pennian Bank chose an awesome 4×6, 4-picture, black and blue border design for their pictures. Guests were excited to sort through the handheld “Business” props. There was play money, piggy banks and assorted work related sayings that people were happy to pose with behind the BIG red camera. It was great to see familiar faces having so much fun behind the BIG red camera.

Pennian Bank has changed names throughout its 155 year history, but it still continues to offer Juniata and Perry county banking and financial needs. The bank has also opened a branch in the Camp Hill area of New Bloomfield. Each branch offers personal banking, business services and business banking. Pennian Bank is proud to support the local community and pays special tribute to their employees that do outstanding work for the community.

Thank you Pennian Bank for allowing Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths to be a part of your Workers Appreciation event for the third year in a row! Can’t wait till next year!

Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths had the pleasure of celebrating the marriage of Dewey and Lacey at the C. Barton McCann School of Art, Fern Hill located in Petersburg, Pennsylvania. Lacey wore a lovely, white, lace, beaded, strapless gown. Her bridesmaids were arrayed in sleeveless, navy blue gowns, and her junior bridesmaids were garbed in sleeveless, sequined, champagne rose gowns. Dewey and his groomsmen were attired in a black suit, vest, tie and white shirts. Since the couple are Penn State graduates, the color scheme reflected the school’s colors of navy blue and white.

Wedding guests quickly walked over to the Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths BIG red camera 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. Wedding guests also had the opportunity to serenade the newlyweds with private messages and photo booth photos in the couple’s memory book. Later, Dewey and Lacey could look back and reminisce about the exciting day while viewing the messages along with the pictures!

The newlyweds chose a 4×6, 4-picture, landscape border embellished with navy blue and white zigzags. Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths had a steady line of guests posing for pictures. Young and old alike were quick to grab some props, step behind the BIG red camera and pose for some pictures. Dewey posed with his mother and siblings for a variety of awesome photos. Even Dewey and Lacey’s wedding photographers stepped behind the camera and posed for some striking, fun-filled photos.

Thank you Dewey and Lacey for allowing Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths to capture some stunningly, funny and fabulous pictures that will leave everyone fondly smiling and reminiscing about your wonderful day!

Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths had a delightful time celebrating the marriage of Jeffery and Amber at the Greenland’s Lodge of Spruce Creek located in Alexandria, Pennsylvania. Pastor Ryan Smith married the couple on a beautiful sunlit day. Amber wore a lovely mermaid style, sleeveless wedding gown. Her bridesmaids were adorned in knee length, light blue, sleeveless dresses. Both the bride and her bridesmaids donned cowboy boots with their attire. Jeffery and his groomsmen were adorned in white shirts, brown vests, light blue ties and jeans. The bridal couple had a down-home country style wedding!

The couple chose a 2×6, 4-picture, blackboard style border embellished with a mason jar filled with baby’s breath. Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths had a steady line of guests posing for pictures. Amber, her maid of honor and ring bearer were the first to step behind the camera that night. Jeff and his siblings gathered the younglings for pictures with their grandfather. It was awesome to see the kids held in their parents arms arrayed around their grandfather. Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths was a great child minder for the kids. They could not pass up posing for pictures!

The night was festive and full of laughter and love while watching these kids pose with props behind the Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths BIG red camera. Not only were the little ones having fun with the various hats and glasses, the older kids were also checking out the prop selection for their own pictures. Many of the families were so happy to fit large groups behind the camera. Smiles adorned all faces that night!

One picture topped the cake as the best photo prop of the night! After Jeffery and Amber cut the cake and fed each other a piece, Jeffery was naughty and smashed the cake in Amber’s face. As she was walking by the Lotsa Laffs Photo Booth, we suggested remembering her face with a fun photo! As cake was dripping onto the floor, Amber flashed her fun loving smile of the event for the BIG red camera. She was a real trooper with all that frosting and cake on her face. Lotsa Laffs Photo Booth wishes we had props simulating the dripping icing and cake smears, but we have to work with actual cake and icing to achieve this effect.

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

The main purpose of a sweet sixteen party in the United States is the celebration of a child maturing into young adulthood. A sweet sixteen party can be simple or very elaborate. In the state of Pennsylvania, a newly turned sixteen year old can apply for a driver’s license. It is an exciting time because the sixteen year old begins to take on more responsibility for themselves and their actions.

Thank you Lex for allowing Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths be part of your Sweet 16 celebration!
