Kidchella x Traveling Photo Bus

A few weeks ago we helped Amanda Stanton celebrate her adorable daughters birthdays with a Kidchella themed party. You heard right KIDCHELLA, sounds super cute right?...IT WAS! Obviously no Coachella themed party is complete without our 71 VW Photo Booth Bus, along with a braid bar, custom flower crown making, a stage for the kids to sing and dance, a castle bounce house, yummy desserts and amazing lounge set-ups! See all the fun below :)

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.

Photo Booth Turned Kissing Booth XO

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.

Vintage Camper Remodel; Photo-Booth Coming Soon!

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!

Long Beach Photo Booth Bus Shoot

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 :) 

6th & Detriot Turns 1!

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!

Peace Love & Photo Booth Bus

We had so much fun celebrating Zooey's 5th Birthday at Wild Child Party & Supply. The theme was 70's and had plenty of peace, love and flower power to go around.
