|My brother-in-law was low on funds for his daughter's wedding so I jumped in for the rescue for free with the mutual understanding that you get what you pay for. So, no pressure.
I decided to set up my own version of the traditional cheesy "photobooth" after the cake cutting, etc and well into the drinking. I set up my lasonite hilite, stuck a couple of bees in it, set the camera on the tripod with an off camera flash and a table next to it with a cheap Canon Selphy. The bride was led out of the room before I set up and the wedding crowd was told to take turns writing messages to the bride on a whiteboard. OMG! I had 30 people in line at one point, everybody was having so much fun! Most of them came around a second time to get a print for themselves. I already have 2 inquiries for future PAYING jobs :D
I'm looking for suggestions for a better printer with pictBridge and one that will print on magnetic paper. I'm trying to keep it under $500 but that's flexible. Also, battery power would be nice and if I didn't have to plug it into my camera every damn time I need to print, that would be nice too. I've been wanting something to bring to local sporting events too, I'm also adding rugged to the mix. I know there are event photographers on this site...
Does such a machine exist?!
Here's a few pics (excuse the light issues, I think I've got those addressed):
PS, the wedding pictures came out nice too, so all in all a great night :D
