If you’ve just come across us at a nightclub, you’ve probably seen our basic setup: an awesome, flashy backdrop, a real-live person photographer, and your pictures, looking so fine right here on glitterguts.com. You might not know that we also offer
In an increasingly digital world, it seems like people have more pictures than ever before, but far fewer actual physical copies. Quality prints of good pictures of memorable nights are treasured. It’s been said that nothing ever dies once it’s gone on the internet, but no one puts .jpegs on the fridge or the mantle, so while old facebook pictures get buried under new facebook pictures in an avalanche of date, printed pictures really make a moment last.
The bride and groom at this wedding had a very specific concept for their photobooth, and since none of our vendors had one that was just right, we made it ourselves!
CUSTOM BACKDROPS DESIGNED BY ARTISTS
With artist driven backdrops, anything is possible. We’ve built up an amazing network of artist collaborators over the years. The backdrop featured here was designed by the incredible Mike Tewz, who you may have seen on Bravo TV’s Work of Art!
CUSTOM PHOTOBOOTHS DESIGNED BY ARTISTS
A lot of the time, the photobooth is just a part of the space you’re throwing an event at, but sometimes, the photobooth needs to transform with the space. When downtown’s first City Target opened on State Street, they wanted everything at their grand opening to be representative of the urban Chicago experience, so we brought in Stan Chisholm (18andCounting) to build a full-scale 8ft x 12ft Chicago bus shelter, built out of lightweight foam core and branded by hand.
Green screen backdrops offer even more opportunities for collaboration and innovation… for the TIME WARP-themed Printers Ball, Edie Fake designed a minimalist Martian cathedral for the guests’ photo ops.
We can also make and apply more elaborate photo frames while printing on site.
PROPS: COSTUME BOX
People love things they can pick up, put on, and play with, and a prob box can turn a group of introverted conservatives into a bunch of rambunctious kids playing dress-up in no time. We can customize the props towards a specific theme, or just fill a trunk with outfits and let your guests go nuts.
PROPS: FANCY THINGS ON STICKS
You’ve probably seen your average “fancy things on sticks” prop box: monocles, handlebar mustaches, tophats, lips, etc. We love em because they dress up your guests in ways where they aren’t covered up and hidden away, but the props from this Alice In Wonderland wedding show the full creative extent of what can be done with the medium!
PROPS: CUSTOM MADE BY ARTISTS
Just like with our custom backdrops, anything is possible when we work with artists to make custom props JUST FOR YOU. You might be able to find a good fez or a shrunken around Halloween, but have you ever tried to buy a chainsaw or a tommy gun? They’re all plastic and cheesy (so that you don’t get kicked off the bus and arrested for holding them). For this party we enlisted Stan Chisholm (18andCounting) to make a set of props that were versatile and had a uniform look that photographed fantastically.
We can rock a traditional logo wall, but the drawback is that you’re missing out on the colorful backdrops that may have brought you to GlitterGuts in the first place. By embedding your logos in the photos, you still get to show off the party you put together and the beautiful people who came to it, but in unique photos that are more likely to be treasured and reposted on blogs and social media sites like tumblr and facebook.
STEP-AND-REPEAT LOGO WALLS
But hey, we’re not ogres. The client comes first and sometimes, the logo needs to be front-and-center, in back, and everywhere in between. You want a step-and-repeat for your next party, trade show, or red carpet event? We got you.
PASSWORD-PROTECTED PAGES FOR YOUR PHOTOS
We love being a place where we can show all your pictures to the world, but we value your privacy as well. Password protected photos give you control over all your fabulous pictures, and are a great option for weddings, bar and bat mitzvahs, quincenearas, and corporate events.
services we don’t offer at this time….
We don’t have stockpiles of animals or anything, but if you’re looking for some well-cared-for, healthy obedient, photogenic critters, we know a guy!
