When you think of the 80s, what comes to mind? Neon colors, big hair, cassette tapes, and preppy sunglasses. Now imagine yourself at an 80s party, dressed to kill, and posing for some totally rad photos under the neon lights…We can make that dream a reality; with a neon photo booth!
Rock the Gala Goes 80s
The 2019 Rock the Gala party for the Results Foundation rocked out at the Lumber Exchange Event Center in Minneapolis. As this was an 80s-themed party, the guests were invited to dress in glam rock attire and be prepared for a gnarly good time. We brought our open style photo booth, so guests could get an awesome memento of their evening in the rocking 80s!
A Neon Photo Booth Made Especially for the Party
We added some pizzazz to our photo booth by equipping it with neon lights. The bright lights shone across the guests’ faces as they posed, creating a look worthy of the 1980s. Since many of the guests were already dressed up 80s-style, the neon glam really added to the shiny, disco-like effect. Our photo props added to the fun by supplying the guests with funky wigs, oversized mics, rocking-good hats, megaphones, and beautiful big sunglasses. We enjoyed snapping the photos almost as much as the guests enjoyed posing!
What Can We Do for Your Party?
The Rock the Gala event was 80s-themed, but our neon photo booth will work for other themed parties, as well. It adds bright lights, charisma, and flashy charm to all sorts of fun events.

At Time Into Pixels, we’re always excited to try new things and bring clients something they’ve never seen before. Recently, we had the chance to work with the Minnesota Vikings to give high-school athletes a genuinely remarkable photo booth experience. We used a custom-built frame as a magazine cover, giving them an opportunity to pose for an increasingly popular photo trend. As you can imagine, this open style photo booth presented plentiful opportunities for digital sharing for everyone involved!
Magazine Open Style Photo Booth
The photo op was inspired by a growing trend that’s been appearing at events and gatherings of all kinds. Everyone from Vogue to the Kardashians have been using it for their parties. Given how genuinely fashionable and interesting the idea is, we were thrilled to try it out ourselves.
Using a full-scale acrylic box, we created a photo op identical to a magazine. We used the Viking’s signature colors, making for a truly authentic and professional-looking cover. This gave the students some excellent opportunities to pose and seeing it also gave them a good idea of how their photo would turn out beforehand. Digital-only sharing was utilized for the photos, leading to numerous great social media posts among all attendants. It was an amazing experience to create something so novel that blended perfectly with the brand and people that were there.

Events should be fun and exciting for all who attend, and often, the best ideas come in surprising ways. Recently, we did an event for Enseo, that would end up with a last minute change in plans. They were testing our skills and together we pulled it off without a hitch. We also discovered that a Game of Thrones photo booth in Minneapolis means fun for all who attend, whether it is a corporate event or not.
A Surprising Twist that Put Us to the Test
As a photoactivation company, we are always looking for fun ways to help our clients make their events fun while achieving their marketing agenda. When we first spoke to Enseo, they booked an open style booth for a party they had planned. They wanted to take advantage of the fact that people love to have photos taken if there is a cool photo op available. They wanted their logo put on it so that it could be shared on social media to raise brand awareness. We were happy to help.
The party would be held in Minneapolis during the HITEC conference. This is an easy one for us. An open style photo booth is typically a landscape photo of some type with the company logo on them in some way.
What a surprise when they called just a week and a half before the event to tell us some very exciting news. They wanted to add a fun prop – a real Game of Thrones throne!
The Challenges We Faced Head On
This Game of Thrones throne was amazing to see, but it did present some challenges for us. Instead of a landscape style booth, the throne looked better in the portrait orientation. Therefore, on short notice, we had to actually modify one of our booths to accommodate the prop our client chose for their corporate photo booth MN.
We put our heads together and decided that a single shot portrait was the way to go for this photo booth setup. However, the client also wanted to jazz it up a little. They wanted to add GIFs so that people could share short looping videos online. These gifs would have our client’s logo on them to provide additional brand awareness. This also posed a challenge because GIFs require 2-3 photos and our template had only one.
To solve this problem, we used a few tricks that we had up our sleeve. Our booth would take three photos. The first photo would be available to print. The three photos would go into the creation of the GIF, which could be shared on social media.
How It All Came Together
This corporate photo booth MN adventure was unexpected from beginning to end. It was a smashing success. Everyone loved using the prop. It isn’t every day that we get to touch a piece of “Game of Throne” memorabilia. To have the actual throne was outstanding and we are grateful to Enseo and HBO for giving us an opportunity to be a part of such a cool event!

Brides and grooms want their wedding to be a special event that is unique to them and is also fun for their guests. Maarya and Mudassir were no different. They were married last year and this spring they held a party for friends and family at the historic Depot in Minneapolis. Their reception was a traditional Saudi celebration complete with ethnic food, vibrant decor, and traditional clothes.
Open Style Photo Booth Rental
Maarya and Mudassir chose Time Into Pixels Photography to be their official photographer to memorialize the occasion. Their event programs included a Turkish tile design which we then used to create a matching, custom template for the photo booth background. The couple went with our Open Style Photo Booth to accommodate the large number of guests in attendance. This design allows for groups of up to 17 people to be in a single shot!
At the end of the night, we gave the bride and groom a one-of-a-kind book that included all of the photo strips that were taken. This book also contained the well-wishes and signatures of their friends and family and is sure to be a cherished heirloom. We also provided a complete digital photo gallery of the experience.
If you’re looking for a photo booth rental in Minneapolis for a wedding or corporate event, Time Into Pixels would love to help! We can provide custom backdrops like we did for Maarya and Mudassir or we can use one of the ones we have on hand – we even have a green screen. Photos can be printed instantly and are also immediately shareable on social media!
The most talked-about events have 3 things in common:
Great food and drinks.
Fun and memorable activities for the guests.
Make your shindig stand out from the rest by having a unique, fun, and interactive open style photo booth
People today want excitement. They like to share what they are doing at any given moment. Approximately 1,000 selfies post to Instagram each second. It is what makes social media such a popular option when it comes to marketing. The more unique the photo op, the more people are willing to climb on board with it. This is what made our recent time at the Mall of America so fantastic. We were able to turn it into a day at the Mall that was very sharable. Ourdigital photo booth made it a trip that beneficial for all.
Most people do not visit a mall to take photos. They are there to shop, hang out with friends, and walk. We say, “Why not add some fun to their day?” Our job is to provide an unexpected experience that will add a lot of fun to their day. A photo booth rental MN can change ordinary settings into amazing adventures. At the Mall of America, we had a fun background image that showed the brand. People were excited to get up and get their photo taken.
How Would It Benefit You?
As people line up to have their photo taken in front of a digital background, more will come. They will not be able to resist the urge to be silly and have a laugh with their friends. Once taken, photos get shared with friends and family. Most people will tag their location showing where they found the fun. This can draw more people to your business that may not have considered being there in the past. A great background, your company logo or brand on it, and fun props can make anything possible. You can even choose a Boomerang Booth option. Like the app, it allows people to create exciting and fun clips of what they are doing at that moment.
Create Your Own Experiences
Part of an exceptional marketing plan for business owners is to draw attention to their brand. What better way can you do this than show people having fun while using something that features your brand? It will carry more of an impact than simply having people talk about your company.
