Photobooths have become a popular element for many wedding receptions; filled with the people you care about and often a host of silly props, these provide a unique way to capture the fun of your reception and give guests a great take-home souvenir from your special day.
The photobooth was the invention of Anatol Josepho, a Russian-Jewish immigrant who began working on a coin-operated automatic camera and direct-positive photographic print processor in 1913 at age 19 while living in Budapest, Hungary. After years of refining his invention, Josepho launched his first Photomaton Studio in New York City’s Times Square in 1926 – and the photobooth quickly caught the public’s attention.
