History Of Paper Moon Booths
Paper Moon's were popular in the early 1900s. They were the original 'Photo Booth'. Long before the Photo Booth phenomenon struck weddings all over the world, Paper Moon Booths were a popular attraction at carnivals and travelling fairs. Most people didn't have access to cameras and thought Paper Moon Booths a great opportunity to get photos taken. The origin of the Paper Moon Booth is unknown but it was assisted by the first flight of the aeroplane by the Wright brothers in 1903. This combined with the passing of Haley's Comet in 1910 brought people's imagination to the possibility of being able to fly to the moon.
Photographers of the time created portable photo booths which they showcased at fairs. They were cheaply priced so that the majority of people could afford to have their photos taken.
Here is an example of a traditional Paper Moon Booth:
The Paper Moon Booth concept was captured in the 1973 film 'Paper Moon' starring Ryan and Tatum O'Neal. In the film Tatum O'Neal's character, Addie Loggins, has her picture taken at a country fair with a paper moon.
Silly Snaps Paper Moon Booth Studio
Much like the original Paper Moon Booths we have our very own portable open photo booth studio. We have re-created the original Paper Moon Booth, whilst at the same time modernising it to suit 21st century weddings. We will attend your event with our moon and starry backdrop, along with professional studio lighting and camera so your guests can have a unique memento of your wedding. You have the choice of your own dedicated page on our website or your own personal website made specifically for you with all of your photos so your guests can download all the photos themselves. The bride and groom will also receive a usb/cd with all the photos on.
