Amazing how much you can pack into car. On May 19th, 2012 I arrive at ZAIDEN’S studio, together with fun props, lights and cameras into the car. We Arrive at the Wedding Hall 5pm.
It was my first time touching all of his lights and equipments. I kept praying in my head, please Ivy don’t break anything. The equipments were similar to the school equipments. Make sure the speed lights go into the stand properly and screwed on tight. Remove the light cover last and replace with the head. Had to pinch the top and the clips to go inwards and out to hold the cover. I had difficulty with putting on the lights at first since it was a little different.
I love how ZAIDEN keeps all of his lights in bags and cords organized neatly. It was easy for me to find everything and set them up. Stands were a little bit different. Never turn the bottom screw was what I learned and only unscrews the top.
After all the lights were set up, I got to run the electrical cords. The yellow cord had to be tapped every 6 inches apart and straight on the ground, so people don’t trip on it.
And another long tape on top of the cord. Had to make sure the tape surround the cord tightly and making the cord visible.
A black fabric surrounded the bottom of the lights to hide the messy cords being plugged.
Guests arrive and I got to check off all the guests at the wedding who took pictures. Ask for their table numbers and last name.
ZAIDEN took all the photos. It reminded me of prom. Old couples took the props and were putting on fun sunglasses and leopard hats. They were laughing so hard. It was nice to see people having fun.
Melissa printed all the photos as we finish taking all the guests’ photos.
I put stickers provided by the bride and groom and stick them one by one on the back of the photos. Place them on top of 5×7 envelopes and lay them all out on tables.
All the photos from the wedding is then posted on http://www.glamphotobooth.com/ where guests can download free 8 x 10
Overall, my first photo booth was really fun. I learned a lot. And I didn’t break anything.
