Silly Shotz Photobooth

Year One Wellness

Mention Ladies Lifestyle Network for $50 off your booking!

In January 2013 Shane was inspired by his daughters wedding planning - she had seen a photobooth at a wedding show and told him all about it. She thought it sounds like fun and gives wedding guests a break from the dancefloor to capture memories from the night.

After his daughters wedding, his brother was also talking to a friend who experienced a fun photobooth at a wedding. The lightbulbs went off and together, they started Silly Shotz.

Their company saying is "We take your fun seriously and we seriously love to have fun" Whats better than that?! You can expect accountability, responsibility, quality and affordability when you hire Silly Shotz.

They offer a variety of services from open/enclosed booths, 360 booth and dropoff booths. They supply printed pics for all, text to phone for digital copies, awesome props, attendants for setup and assistance, online gallery after the events, templates and backdrops to enhance party themes.

In 10 years, they have attended over 2500 events and close to 1000 weddings!!
