Bluxome Winery 53b Block Party

Bluxome Winery took advantage of the rare heat wave San Francisco recently experienced to throw their South Of The Slot Block Party, featuring food trucks Satellite Republic, Del Popolo, Fins on the Hoof, Frozen Kuhsterd, and a surprise appearance from Red Rooster midway through the shindig. Local residents looking to enjoy the beautiful day outside arrived for the selection of tandoori grills, pizza, poutine, icy treats, and taco dishes and indulged in Bluxome’s own house-made Sangria inside the venue space. The DJ kept a constant stream of party music and classic throwbacks coming as our live slideshow of photos snapped in our booth ran. Guests chatted and filled their bellies before stopping by to contribute their own smiles and poses to the mix. Attendants of all ages enjoyed the corn-hole game set up outside by the trucks. It was an all-around great time to soak up some sun and catch up with family and friends.

Kentucky Derby Part @ Trifecta on 3rd Austin, TX

Our Austin Photo Booth opened the beginning of May this year with Trifecta on 3rd, a premiere bourbon bar in our latest market, Austin, at their second annual Kentucky Derby Party. The racing excitement was palpable as attendants arrived in a variety of show-stealing hats and their best derby attire. In addition to enjoying the main event with hot brown sandwiches and complimentary Mint Juleps in hand,the first 16 teams on the scene also got a chance to compete in the annual Bean Bag Tournament. Prizes were awarded to the last 3 teams standing, but in our humble opinion, all the fabulous fashionistas that stopped by our photo booth dressed to impress were winners that day!

Where Magazine Event @ de Young Museum

96.5 KOIT Go Red Strut @ SF War Memorial

The San Francisco War Memorial and Performing Arts Center saw red this February as Bay Area executives and community leaders and fundraisers arrived in support of the second annual Go Red Strut fashion show, hosted by 96.5 KOIT. SnapFiesta was on site to capture all the glamour and smiles of the activists that attended to raise money and awareness for the American Heart Association‘s “Go Red For Women” movement, which aims to fund scientific research and educational programs on heart disease to combat its title as the leading cause of death among women. The volunteer models we saw strutting down the catwalk sure had a lot of heart to lend to the effort. SnapFiesta is proud to have been able to support the cause and we had an amazing time working with KOIT.

The Bold Italic @ Anchor Brewery

Here at SnapFiesta we are used to handling curve balls when we show up at events. Our friends at The Bold Italic threw a very interesting one: a 500 pound bear! He was a surprise, but our crew worked around his installation and got the event going on time. We are very glad he could join the party!

The Bold Italic is a very popular online magazine tapped into the spirit and community of San Francisco. SnapFiesta got a chance to get wild with them at the Anchor California Lager Launch Party that took place in the Anchor Brewing Company. Acting also as an event hub and online shop, Bold Italic promotes bold, local entrepreneurs and praises Anchor Brewery for its significance in San Francisco’s history and its handmade contributions of eight unique beers, notably including Anchor Steam®. Guests got a chance to taste the fine beverages themselves while enjoying the party. The launch represents another success in the longtime Anchor Brewing Company legacy, which has its roots in the California gold rush and survived through the Prohibition. Enjoy the photos with our new friend the Anchor Steam Bear!

Photobooth and Flipbook Station w/ SFTravel @ Exploratorium 4.10.13

SnapFiesta officially launched our newest service: FlipFiesta Flipbooks, at the Exploratorium‘s brand new home at Pier 15/17 on April 10th, 2013. We got an exclusive sneak peek inside before the museum held its grand re-opening to the public thanks to our partnership with SFTravel, hosts of the spring Partner Business Exchange. The bustling mixer brought together hundreds of Bay Area SFTravel partners for an evening of networking, gourmet bites, and top-notch spirits. Of course, guests also got to get hands-on with the Exploratorium’s famously interactive installations of mesmerizing arts and fascinating sciences. Those that stopped by our SnapFiesta photobooth studio were whisked away to various San Francisco attractions and nightlife scenes via our green screen technology. Over at our FlipFiesta studio, guests were thrilled to discover the unique and novel flipbook experience we offered, which brought an even more interactive, animated, and 3-D version of our professional photobooth experience. We didn’t think anyone would be more excited than we were to launch flipbooks, but the fun-loving partners, families, and museum volunteers that came through our video booth proved otherwise! There was no shortage throughout the evening of mini-movie stars lining up beside our decked out props table to make sure they got in on all the action. We couldn’t have asked for a more entertaining and enthusiastic group to be a part of our FlipFiesta Flipbooks beginnings.

Terracotta Warriors Opening @ Asian Art Museum

SnapFiesta is a San Francisco photo booth that is all about pushing boundaries – whether it be the premiere technologies and photography expertise we employ in our photo booths, or the intricately detailed and eye-catching studio setups we build for our clients – and the ultra-high-energy experience provided by CHERYL at the Asian Art Museum‘s Terracotta Warriors opening party was right at our level. Party-goers donned in elaborate costumes and face paint took a break from the rumbling dance floor to step in front of our glamorous Spangled Gold Sequin backdrop and be the stars of their very own professional mini-photo-shoot. The celebration was thrown on the eve of the grand unveiling of the Asian’s China’s Terracotta Warriors: The First Emperor’s Legacy exhibit, which features ten life-size terracotta figures – the biggest collection permitted outside of China within a single space. Given that the First Emperor’s impressive burial ground was discovered to boast of a scale replica all 250,000 square feet of his imperial palace (zoo included), and has earned the title of the Eighth Wonder Of The World, we’re certain that the Emperor would have felt as right at home with the epic and extraordinary party scene as we did.

Dine About Town Launch Party @ City View

Over 100 of San Francisco’s most prominent restaurants participated in this year’s first round of Dine About Town (DAT), the 12th annual rendition of the popular, week-long celebration of cuisine brought By SF Travel and partners.

Though it happens twice a year, San Francisco residents are famed to be enthusiastic foodies – and for good reason. We can never get enough of exciting, quality food. The answer to that challenge was the Dine About Town Launch Party, held eight days in advance to kickoff atop the City View at Metreon.

A selection of participating restaurants contributed to the party fundraiser, thrown to support Meals On Wheels with 100% of its proceeds, by providing an early sneak preview of their planned DAT menus. In between enjoying breathtaking views of San Francisco nightlife with wine, beer, and spirit samples, guests rounded out their unforgettable experience with SnapFiesta’s one of a kind open-set, professional photo booth.

They literally would not forget the city scenery as our green screen technology captured all the lights and colors of the nighttime city view from the City View Metreon. Guests could enjoy some other SF attractions: De Young Museum in Golden Gate Park, SF Ballet, the First Emperor’s burial ground from the Asian Art Museum’s Terracotta Warriors exhibit, and the adored seven dwarves of the Snow White exhibit from the Walt Disney Museum. It was a scrumptious night of food and fun to remember as guests left smiling with happy bellies.
