Tis the Season!!

At SnapFiesta, there is nothing better than the chill of winter in the air and the exuberance of beautiful light displays throughout town letting us know the holidays have arrived! The holiday season is the best time of the year for our photo booths to transform into the spotlight of every party and celebrate those special moments! Thanks to our amazing variety of holiday events and spectacular clients, we were able to wave 2016 goodbye and capture the very best of the season surrounded by genuine smiles and stunning photographs!

Photo Booths and Photo Entertainment as amazing branding and marketing tools

Photo booths are turning into the most popular form of entertainment at events of all kinds. Whether it’s for a banging music festival, a corporate party, or a private party, modern photo booths are packed with a host of marketing features that can be a great way to promote your business or remind guests about the fun they had at your event! Since everyone knows the photo booth craze is among us, we came up with the top reasons why SnapFiesta photo booths make amazing branding tools:


Increase your brand awareness with logos and messaging  Starting with the print layout as a mobile ad for your company can be a great tool for messaging. Think about it, the photos from your event will be displayed on desks and refrigerator doors with multiple daily views, so these prints are a great way to keep your branding and messaging in view long after the event is over. The amount of space people have for these memories is limited, so creating the best quality photos is key to win the best spot.





Maximize branding: Create a unique experience

Traditional photo booths are great but imagine the impact your booth will have if you get creative with a more dynamic service. Tell your company’s story with a flipbook, take a 360 video at your product launch with our SlowMotion360. Find the services that fits your event and brand, and remind clients about your brand by choosing your pictures design layout, backdrops and colors to compliment your brand and the event. Custom backdrops and sets can also act as prime ad space for sponsors or other stakeholders who would benefit from having their logos displayed at your event.




Increase your online presence : Broadcast your experience with social media 

Social media is one of the most powerful marketing tools in this day and age. Your guests get to enjoy posting their photos instantly while it takes your brand viral on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and the ability to post to other social media channels. Not only will adding social media integration to your photo booth generate great buzz but it will also give you data insights and event data capture for effective marketing campaigns. Your guests get to share their memories effortlessly and you get reliable and compliant guest data, it’s a win win!




Increase engagement

Just imagine: fun props, good music, lovely people and a kick ass photo booth to capture all of the fun; your next event can act as the perfect platform to engage with potential clients.  Photo booths are an ideal attraction and talking point for you with your customers.  They provide a relaxed environment that leads to better engagement.  Better engagement means added opportunities to talk about your offerings and create a foundation for future relationships.




Increase in ROI 

Bottom line is if you are investing in a marketing tool it has to increase your ROI, and photo booths are the perfect way to do so. Having the right photo entertainment service at your event can create a great buzz around your brand. Depending on the event, the ROI can be tremendous, and with the right marketing goals in mind, the effects can be seen a long time after the event. Don’t get stuck using out dated marketing tools, instead take advantage of all of the positives that photo marketing can provide for you!




Our Journey to VintageFiesta

Dear SnapFiesta Customers and followers, our team is very happy to introduce you to SnapFiesta younger sibling : VintageFiesta! Now that we have officially launched, we wanted to take the time to share this incredible journey with you.

Listening and getting ahead of customers needs is our added value at SnapFiesta. Fun, surprise, memories, magical decor are part of what makes an event not only great, but outstanding! We wanted to help you reach that with VintageFiesta. 

VintageFiesta was born from the vision of combining the practicality of a modern photobooth set with the nostalgic whimsy of vintage vehicles.


Say Hello to Vinnie the bus! Vinnie is a funkadelic 1974 Volkswagen Type 2 Microbus. Because of type 1’s popularity during the counterculture movement of the 1960s the bus received numerous nicknames worldwide, including the Hippie Wagon. Measuring only 14 feet long, this self driving photo booth can fit in tight spaces both outdoors and indoors! Vinnie can fit 3 to 5 people comfortably but when the fun gets going the more people the merrier! Check out our VW Photobooth bus!

Fun Fact: The Type 2, along with the 1947 Citroën H Van, are among the first ‘forward control’ vans in which the driver was placed above the front road wheels!


Proudly introducing Gene, The Curtis Airstream! Gene is a 1949 Curtis Wright Clipper. Upon the post war era, the forties witnessed the early beginnings of new technologies. These innovations lead to the Curtis Wright Clipper, America’s masterpiece of lightweight and streamlined design. At 22 feet long, Gene is the perfect self-contained party lounge! The photobooth is an optional add-on for this particular trailer due to its spacious interior which boasts a kitchen with a refrigerator, a bar counter, a sink, seating area for 10, surround sound, TV and spectacular lighting to get the party started from the inside out! Check out our Retro Mobile Party Lounge!


Did you know: The Curtis Wright Clipper was built by war-experienced aircraft engineers and craftsmen! Talk about vintage travel luxury at it’s peak!

VintageFiesta-Airstream007 (1)Say hello to Hellen, the classiest Airstream in town!

Hellen is a 1959 Airstream Globester. In the 1950s the United States was the world’s strongest military power. Its economy was booming, and the fruits of this prosperity– suburban houses, and top of the line vehicles–were available to more people than ever before! The 1959 Airstream Globester is one of the rarest gems that emerged during that era.

Hellen is our premier VintageFiesta vehicle as it is not just a photo booth but also a retro lounge space! At 18 feet long it is perfect for outdoor events and large scale indoor spaces. It fits 6 to 8 people comfortably and as with our traditional open set booth, we use the same top of the line quality equipment that is guaranteed to have your guests look stunning!  Check out our Airstream Photobooth!

Fun Fact: The 1959 Airstream Globester model was only produced at their California plant for a few years and even then it was a special order. Hellen is definitely one of a kind!


Meet Terry the Taxi! Terry is a 1969 Austin fx4 London Taxi. The 1960s were a time of significant cultural and social change in London, and we have managed to secure a piece of history from  “Swinging London.” The taxi is a four door vehicle measuring at about 180.3 inches long, it can sit about three to five people comfortably. The photobooth design is simplistic, reminiscent of a vintage camera with an off camera flash. Check out our London Taxi Photobooth!

Did you know: The taxi was designed to maneuver through the tight streets of London so one of the more remarkable characteristics of the London Taxis its tight turning circle, it can make a U-turn on a dime!


Since 2015 our Vintage wonders has been making appearances at various events, making guests smile, laugh, and remember amazing moments with their friends! Like proud parents, SnapFiesta is looking after VintageFiesta step, excited to witness its daily success, growth and prosper!

Amazing vintage customizable decor, endless entertainment, physical and digital memories of the event : VintageFiesta is here to help you make your event outstanding!

The Sport of Love

This year at the SF Giant’s Winter FanFest, SnapFiesta was prepared to capture all of the love the loyal fans have for our 3 time world champions the SF Giants. We set up at the CSN news desk, ready to record all of the fun. What we had not expected however was to capture the love between two of our awesome photo booth attendees.

With a giant sign that read “Can I take you out to the ballgame forever, Will you marry me?,” SnapFiesta was honored to capture their love and our very first live proposal! The proposal took place on the sidelines after their photo was taken. Here is a play by play on how it went down. IMG_0412

After the couple took the photo with a sign arranged with CSN they went off like nothing happened. Then on the sidelines the magic happened. He took a baseball out of his backpack and lifted a beautiful engagement ring from it. The look on her face was priceless, and we were there to document the whole thing! You can check out the proposal video at the AT&T park on our Instagram.
Talk about a romantic Valentine’s weekend. We send lots of good luck to the lovely couple and hope we get a save the date in the mail pretty soon!

SnapFiesta @ SF Travel Partner Business Exchange

“To enhance the local economy by marketing San Francisco and the Bay Area as the premier destination for conventions, meetings, events and leisure travel.” –  San Francisco Travel’s mission was in full effect at this month’s Partner Business Exchange. Here at SnapFiesta we were super excited to sponsor and be a part of this outstanding event.

Partner Business Exchanges are a fun and relaxed way for members of the travel and tourism industry to network and mingle with one another. The exchange was held at The Wattis Room, at the San Francisco Symphony. Along with SnapFiesta other sponsors of the event included: The Wattis Room @ San Francisco Symphony, wines from Jax Wines, a duo from SF Event music, and Madame Tussaud’s life sized Tony Bennet.

At the exchange we were excited to introduce SnapFiestas’ newest offering,  our mirror photobooth!

The Mirror photo booth takes the photo booth to a whole new level, as it is an ornate mirror infused with technology. This setup fit the vibe of the event as the room is full of mirrors. The photos looked great with our black sequence background. The dazzling animations overlayed on top of the guests reinfections gave guidance to the photo taking process. As with every photo setup, the mirror booth from SnapFiesta can do onsite prints and social media sharing.

7Everyone had a blast with our cool props as the mirror photobooth captured all of their silly gestures, funky poses, and most importantly their ultimate selfies! The system is designed to fairly and accurately capture the scene in the reflection, so if you don’t see yourself in the mirror, you are not going to be in the shot.

The mirror photobooth is perfect for any occasion. It is designed so that we can customize animations and tailor the interaction with the photobooth to fit each event perfectly. The photobooth fun will be off the charts as guests experience the mirrorbooth in the most unique and engaging ways.

SF Travels Partner Business Exchange was the perfect occasion to present our MirrorFiesta photobooth! We were thrilled to be a part of such a wonderful event and even more thrilled to bring the fun to a whole new level!

Science of Cocktails 2016

With over thirty stations and a multiplicity of spirit representatives SnapFiesta had a blast stirring things up at the Exploratorium’s 6th annual Science of Cocktails. Attendees enjoyed a variety of cocktail related demonstrations, an open bar, and a delicious collection of hors d’oeuvres.

There were chemist, physicists, master distillers, and mixologists that entertained guests by demonstrating the science behind their favorite cocktails. SnapFiesta was there to capture all of the fun as attendees learned how to turn beer bottles into recycled glasses and isolate their DNA using alcohol.

We set up our open-set studio and slow-motion video studio for guests to stop in and enjoy throughout the night. In the midst of the cocktail fun guests had a blast posing with our quirky props and getting a momentum photo at the photo booth. Guests also got to conduct their own three second experiment videos with our slow-motion studio, even abc7newsbayarea joined in on the fun!
