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.
February 14th, a day dedicated to celebrating love and relationships, and in an even more “traditional” sense, made for couples. We threw tradition out of the Traveling Photo Bus’ window; for some laughs and love with our favorite ladies – that’s right, it’s Galentine’s Day!
So, what to do for my Galentine’s celebration; perhaps plan a pretty picnic party, maybe a gathering of gals for a bit of glamping grandeur, or retreat to a posh poolside paradise? Well, weather here on the West Coast had been a real dreamboat lately, and I know exactly what to do when it’s perfect on the Pacific, head to the beach!
I called up three amazing sisters from Spell Bundle, an event rental and styling service based out of Riverside, California; and amazing photographer Amanda Cantón based in Costa Mesa, CA and the magic ensued!
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.
We're huge fans of Prism Boutique and when they asked to use our 71 VW Bus for a their Lookbook we couldn't refuse. Check out some images from the photo shoot - shot by Casey Liu, and featuring model Maly Mann.
*YES! You can rent the 71 VW Bus without the photo-booth for photo-shoots. Use it for your next lookbook, campaign, or personal photo shoot. Email us for pricing.
Imagine the perfect road trip in your Volkswagen bus, starting off at the city of lights, continued with a drive through oceanic breezes and views, ending off at the warm desert. We decided Joshua Tree was the perfect elopement destination for a bohemian vibe, private affair for two lovers.
Thanks to the talented team below for helping create this bohemian inspiration!

Amuse Society teamed up with Prism Boutique for their After Hours holiday party for all your last-minute shopping and holiday dressing needs. Guests enjoyed treats by Parchment, rosé by Crazy Beautiful Wines, 15% off all clothing with complimentary gift wrapping, a sparkle bar by Magic & Madness, and photo booth by Traveling Photo Bus. See all the fun that was had below!
Rooted & Wild Floral Co. created this beautiful floral arrangement for a Pop-Up we did and it was so special we had to do a quick photo-shoot with it. We highly recommend adding flowers to the Traveling Photo Bus for your wedding for that extra special touch. We will happily work together with your florist :)
We are so thankful and grateful for all the support we have been shown throughout the course of building this business and feel extremely lucky to bring smiles and laughter to all you beautiful people.

Our new "Photos" sign came in and it looks incredible! We attach it to the bus rack, flip on the lights and the crowd goes wild (haha, maybe not wild but they do love it)! Let the Traveling Photo Bus unique photo-booth make a statement at your next wedding or event!
BIG NEWS Y'ALL! We bought a vintage 58' Field and Stream Camper that we are transforming into the cutest photo-booth to add to our rental fleet.
We got her from the sweetest lady in Ojai, CA. She has a few dings on the exterior and some water damage inside but nothing a little elbow grease and some TLC can't fix. I cant wait to start designing and furnishing!
Check back soon for renovation updates. We're hoping to have her fully restored and ready to be rented by January 2018! Send us an email if your interested in renting her for next year.

We were honored when Roxy asked us to team up with them to promote #Roxyfitness at their Huntington Beach event. Roxy fitness is a global community of girls coming together to exercise their right to have fun, with a 5k run, stand-up paddle boarding and yoga. How good does the Roxy logo look on the photo booth bus? It makes me never want to take it off! Here are some fun photos from the day.
We took the Traveling Photo Bus along with most of our house decor down the street to Rosie's Dog Beach in Long Beach for a fun beach photo shoot. It was super windy that day and everything kept blowing over but we managed to get a few good photos :)
One of our favorite shops in Long Beach celebrated their 1 year anniversary and we were thrilled to be a part of it. 6th & Detriot is a beautifully curated home décor store that showcases a mix of unique styles from the 60s and 70s. See the photos & video below to get a peek inside the shop and the awesome party that ensued!

We were thrilled to be asked to be apart of the highly coveted and celebrity studded Egg Hunt by Akid Brand at the gorgeous Lombardi House in Hollywood. Cybex branded our bus for the event and made it look ahhhh-mazing! Can you ever have too many flowers or plants?! I think not. Also their baby carriers, car seats and strollers are fabulous and extremely well made if you're in the market.

Today is International Women's Day and we couldn't think of a better way to honor it than with our children and each other. We are women supporting women, coming together to create, collaborate and celebrate. Here's to strong woman. May we know them. May we be them.

In the spirit of Valentine's Day, we converted the photo booth bus into a kissing booth for two Valentine's themed events. The first was Eros Day at beautiful Sunstone Winery in Santa Ynez, followed by a Valentine's Day pop-up at Wild Child Party & Supply in Long Beach, CA. Kids and adults, families and couples, all sharing love for each another in The Traveling Photo Booth Bus, and we love that.
This past Saturday Prism Boutique invited us to be a part of their Vintage Pop Up at their storefront in Long Beach, CA. The event featured some rad vintage vendors including an on site sight seamstress custom tailoring 501's Levis, a girl selling vintage out of a converted airstream, live music, fresh pressed juice with champagne and our photo booth bus! With the sun shining, the champagne flowing and some of the best vintage a girl could hope for; I have to say it was a wonderful day!
Thursday night the amazing people at Wild Child held a free movie night at their shop in Long Beach, CA. The Christmas themed event featured The Poler Express, with kids dressed in pj's eating cookies and drinking hot coco along with the Traveling Photo Bus to add even more fun to a magical evening. If we had to sum up the event in a few words it would be; cuteness overload!
