Mod Fox Photobooth

Photobooth Stillwater OK

Who doesn’t love a little entertainment at a wedding? Thanks to Mod Fox Photobooth, Stillwater weddings just got more festive.

Tell us a little about Mod Fox

Photo booths in the last several years have become very popular and as wedding photographers we see a lot of photo booths at weddings. In this era of digital everything, there is something special now about walking away with a physical photo in your hand. If done right, they can be the life of the party but we kept seeing clunky booths, tacky prints, and cheap backdrops. We knew it could be done so much better. So we started Mod Fox Photobooth as a modern alternative. We had our booths built out of pro photo equipment. In fact, it’s not really even a booth. It’s an open-air design, using the latest technology. Our photo booth is open-air because we believe it’s more fun when everyone’s involved. We aim for a fun, high quality, and easy experience. It has a touch screen, prints instantly, and there’s a social media station on the side. Plus it looks clean and nice. When you see it, you’ll love it!

What types of products/services do you offer? 

We specialize in open-air photo booth rentals for events. You have the option to add-on a Keepsake Album which is a chic scrapbook containing a copy of each photo strip from the event. We also do custom Snapchat Geofilters. Clients can also have a wooden USB drive that contains all the photos of the event. For companies and organizations, with a photo booth rental we have ways to help with brand awareness, hashtag launching, and building client lists.

What comes with your photo booth?

All of our rentals come with unlimited prints and custom in-house designed photo strips. We have several beautiful sequin backdrops to choose from and we’ll bring lots of crazy props. We have a social media station so that you can instantly send the photos to yourself. It’s all fully managed by one of our super fun attendants. And all of the photos are available free to download and share. Everything is included for a ridiculously good time!

 

Other than weddings, what types of events do you cater to?

A photo booth rental is also great for graduation parties, birthdays, holiday parties, fundraisers, dances, and corporate events.

Any advice for couples looking to hire Mod Fox?

Photo booths are a great way to get photos of those people that tend to avoid cameras. Surprisingly even shy people will hop in front of the photo booth. The prints double as favors and keepsakes as well! We designed our booth to be stylish so that it fits in with any event. As photographers, we also made sure the quality of the photos and the prints were top notch. When researching photo booths find out what the setup looks like, examples of the end product, and what’s all included. We pride ourselves on our custom designs and personalizing each event while not charging extra for it. We try to keep everything as upfront and simple as possible. We don’t charge for travel to Oklahoma City, Tulsa, or any town in-between.

Blue Elephant Photography

Few things encapsulate the memory of your wedding day quite like stunning photographs. The lovely couple behind Blue Elephant Photography, Scott and Kristine Redekopp, are true artists, capturing some of the most brilliant images I’ve seen… and I’ve been in the bridal business for quite some time now. I recently caught up with them for an interview.

Tell us a little about Blue Elephant Photography

We are a husband and wife wedding photography team based out of Stillwater, OK. Kristine is from the Philippines, Scott is from Canada, and home is wherever we are together. We shoot mainly here in the South but we will travel anywhere in the world, which we have. For us, there is nothing more fulfilling and humbling than documenting the connection and the story of two people who are madly in love with each other.  We will photograph anything having to do with two people in love which includes weddings, engagements, anniversaries, or just because love sessions. We love adventures so nothing is too far away for us!

What is your photography style?

We describe our photos as moody and emotional. We love raw emotions, candid shots, and real moments. For weddings, our goal is to tell the whole story of the day so that when you look at the photos you feel like you’re there. Whenever possible we like to take our couples on adventures even if they’re mini ones. We look for forests, mountains, and waterfalls or we may opt for undiscovered cityscapes. Even in a place like Oklahoma there are hidden gems that aren’t too far away.

 

What is your favorite part of wedding photography?

We have several favorite parts during the wedding, we love the slower thoughtful time while getting ready. There is an energy in the air made of excitement and building anticipation. When all the girls and guys are relaxed and just hanging out in the morning, many times that’s when you get the best shots. And we love when the couple opts to do a First Look, which is when they see each other privately before the ceremony and they get the chance to be intimate, gush over each other, and quell any nerves.

Have you had any particularly interesting/exciting shoots?

We love to travel! So anytime we get to shoot somewhere new is exciting for us. Our most memorable shoot so far was a vow exchange at the top of a mountain in New Zealand. We started out with the couple at the base early in the morning while fog still blanketed the area. For 4 hours we hiked up the mountain trail raising not only above the fog but above the clouds! The view was amazing and the couple are awesome humans to spend the day with!

Any tips for couples as they look for their ideal wedding photographer?

We always encourage our couples to shop around. The first thing is to look at the style of the photos and the feelings you get when you look through their work. Meet the photographer or at least Skype them to make sure you’re a good fit. They will be with you the entire day and it’s definitely one of the most important days in your life. You want to make sure that you’re surrounded by people you get along with. Doing an engagement session is a great way to get more relaxed lifestyle photos plus it’s a chance to test out your photographer. Don’t be afraid to shop around if you weren’t happy with the experience. When looking for wedding vendors in general always remember that your wedding is a celebration and planning your wedding should be fun!
