Traveling Photo Bus Relocating to Santa Barbra!

Hi friends! We are happy to announce we are moving to Santa Barbra county! We loved living in Southern California, but are so excited to start our new journey on the central coast, and guess what?!! We’ll be living in an 1968 Airstream we are currently renovating! Crazy? Maybe, but we have always strived to have a small footprint and hope to save money to one day buy our own home. #millennialproblems

Mabel, our photo booth bus and Gloria our photo booth camper are still able to travel all over California so don’t worry if you have an event elsewhere.

XOXO

Otrio Wine Co. Launch Party x Photo Booth Bus

We had the best weekend up in Buellton, CA, about an hour north of Santa Barbra, at the launch party for the Osborne bothers new wine label, Otrio Wine Co. They had an awesome party on their insanely beautiful ranch where they debuted their delicious Ramblin’ Rosé. If your a fan of rosé I would HIGHLY recommend theirs. I was surprised how much I enjoyed, since I’m not a huge rosé lover, but it wasn’t too sweet and super smooth… almost dangerously drinakable. Along with the rosé and our photo booth bus, there was yummy tacos from Valley Fresh, lawn games, and live music from the dreamy Victoria Bailey!

Traveling Photo Bus Proudly Supports Same Sex Marriage

We had the honor of having our photo booth bus at our first same sex wedding for the most amazing couple, Natalie and Daisy. The Long Bech couple was by far the sweetest, most loving, and laid back couple we have worked with. Both fans of VW Bus, we were thirlled to bring our bus and make their big day even more special. We fully support same sex marriage, and hope to do many more same sex weddings in the future. #equallywed #loveislove

Traveling Photo Bus Takes Sonoma

This month we took the Traveling Photo Bus up to Northern California for a corporate event in downtown Sonoma. After all the photo booth fun we of course had to stay a few extra days to do some wine tasting and exploring.  Driving the VW Bus along the winding ocean roads, over vineyard covered rolling hills and through the redwoods forest was pure magic. Our road trip consisted of Napa, Sonoma, Petaluma, Sebastopol, Point Reyes Light House and ending in Tomales Bay for oysters and rosé. 

Here are some highlights of our trip to Sonoma in the Traveling Photo Bus :)

Gloria - Vintage Photo Booth Camper

YOU GUYS! After lots of blood, sweat and tears we finally finished our Vintage Photo Booth Camper... and it looks better than I could have ever imagined! Someone needs to pinch me because I feel like I'm dreaming every-time I look at it.

I want to give a HUGE shout out to my amazing husband who built this dreamboat all on his own and over the course of 6 long months! Needless to say we're all super happy it's finished and excited to share it with everyone.  

The Photo Booth Camper is named after my late Great Grandmother, Gloria. 

The Camper is an exact replica of a 1958 Field & Stream Camper. Click here to see build photos of the trailer. 

Gloria - the photo booth camper is ready to roll to your wedding or special event! Now traveling all over California.

Vintage Camper Photo Booth Build

You guys! Our vintage camper photo booth build is looking AMAZING! My husband has been working his butt off and it's really starting to come together. We finished almost all of the exterior (still need a door and paint job) and have started on the interior. We have the inside all wired up for both a 12v marine battery and shore power, insulation up and started putting up the walls. We should have Gloria (named after my great grandma) nearly finished by the end of this month and just in time for wedding season!

If you interested in having a unique, alternative photo booth at your wedding shoot us an email to reserve your date now.   all over Central and Southern California

Backstory: We bought a 1958 Field and Stream camper off Craigslist in hopes to restore it into a photo booth camper to add to the bus. However, after getting the camper home and deconstructing it, it literally needed a full overhaul. It had been in an accident and the metal frame it sat on was badly tweaked, there was extensive water damage and needed all new outside panneling. So after a lot of back and forth we decided to build a brand new replica of the original we bought since we would be rebuilding esentially the whole thing anyways. The new frame is now a lot safer and the structure is much more sound and lighter than the original. Best of all it's looking just as awesome as it did in 1958!

Santa Ynez x Traveling Photo Bus

We traveled up to Santa Ynez in Central California to join in Otrio Cellars photo-shoot to promote their new Rose. This new small label wine producer is ran by the Osborne brothers (Nick and Nathan) and their father Kurt - hence O-trio for the 3 of them. The grapes are grown on a breathtaking 20+ acre property and has been in family for over 50years. We were lucky enough to try their first ever rose and it was insanely delicious! 

We cant wait to head back to Santa Ynez; it is such a magical place  and the drive up the coast in the Traveling Photo Bus is so beautiful. If you are getting married in Santa Ynez and in need of a photo booth PLEASE give us shout!

Malibu Canyon Engagement Shoot x Traveling Photo Bus

We got introduced to the sweetest photographer named Melissa from a friend and ever since our first phone conversation I couldn't wait to make some photo magic with her and the bus. For our photo shoot we both wanted to "give back"  and help out our fellow IG supporters so we decided on giving away a free couples engagement shoot to one of our lucky followers! We ended up shooting at a beautiful AirBnb in Malibu Canyon and also got Rooted & Wild and 6th & Detroit to donate their services. See all the magic that ensued below.

With February in full swing we teamed up with the gorgeous Pamelyn from Bashery and Co. to celebrate Valentines Day. We gathered some awesome moms and kiddos and met at a park in Playa Vistsa, CA. With the 1971 VW Bus converted into a Kissing Booth everyone had blast and shared lots of kisses and sweet treats! XOXO

Thanks to all these vendors who helped make it possible.
