19 Aug Photo Booth Who? Check out the hippest “Phototainment”
Move over photo booths, there’s new photo entertainment in town! Have you heard of Tap Snap? We hadn’t either until we recently got the chance to meet a fellow member of the Wedding Professionals of Columbus, Melanie Dennis. Melanie and her husband are one of two owners of this new wedding photo entertainment trend in the Columbus, Ohio area. Check out our interview to see what’s so cool about TapSnap!
TapSnap, the company is headquartered in North Vancouver, British Columbia and has been around a couple of years. We began our local franchise in June. Being a franchise means that we have the corporate support to keep up the ever changing social media platforms.
2. What’s so unique about TapSnap?
We call it Phototainment. Guests can pose for a picture, choose a background, and add digital props on our 42” touchscreen. The photo can be instantly emailed, or shared on Facebook and Twitter while we print a 4 x 6 print with a customized monogram or logo printed on each print. We can personalize screens to match your colors and themes with customized backgrounds. We have SnapCast, which captures Facebook, Twitter, and photos from the kiosk and plays them in a slideshow on smart screens around an event.
3. Why should couples choose this type of photo booth rather than your typical photo booth with the curtain?
TapSnap is Instantly Social and Utterly Fun!
TapSnap has a uniformed attendant to help your guests get started. We have no booth and that means more guests can fit into group shots. Our green screens let you customize the background. Guests can email the picture or share it on Facebook and Twitter with your hashtag and @mentions. Couples will be provided an online gallery link after the event. TapSnap has a huge “Wow!” factor.
4. Does it produce a keepsake for the couple and their guests?
Absolutely! We can even provide cardboard frames. The 4 x 6 print on their fridge will remind your guests of your special day.
