Simply put, we have the best photo booths on the Central Coast!
Our founders Mike & Gina Steelman are professional wedding & event photographers and got tired of seeing the lackluster contraptions that were called photo booths at the events they were photographing. So in 2012 they decided to do it right and make it even better!
Enter The Vintage PhotoBox™ Photo Booth Rental Company.

the booth that started it all
This is our namesake baby. She's been along for the ride since the beginning. Some would say she's old fashioned, but we say she's full of charm. Maybe a little bit sexy (but not too much cuz that would be weird).
Redwood panel skins compliment the appeal of our Classic Photo Booth. There's a certain rustic-ness about her that is enticing, and the privacy of a sit-in booth is attractive to some.
This photo booth provides 4 shots per session, resulting in 3 identical strips for those who had fun. This is a great option for weddings or events where the guests can leave a copy in the scrapbook for you with that third print.
Although she's around 380lbs, don't be surprised at the locations she's been at. Our team has done some crazy things to get her in places she probably shouldn't go. (All for our clients!). Muddy terrain, bark, gravel roads, etc. Sure it's a beast to get there, and there are indeed some limitations, but we'll do our best for you for sure.
The footprint of the Classic Booth is about 3ft x 5ft, but give extra room for a table and props if desired. Of course, we'll need a power outlet unless you add-on a generator upgrade.
MUCH more info is listed once you select the type of event you're having!
modern open-air photo goodness
Getting to our teenager. This little guy has a lot of spunk and pizzazz, bringing with him the modern edge of technology. Unlike his sister (who by the way has some killer technology & quality), the PartyBooth can text & email directly from the booth. That and he's all about sharing and bringing his friends into the shot! No curtains to hide behind (well, we can pipe-n-drape it, but that's your call), so the fun is had by all!
This open-air photo booth is perfect for large(r) groups and events that have a ton of people. Group photos are a breeze and come with it the room to goof off and get (just a tiny bit) crazy...if you wanted to.
Prints can be full 4x6" beauties or 2x6" strips and come out in about 13 seconds! Also available in a digital only package without prints.
The footprint on this bad boy is so stinkin' small at about 18"x18" for the actual booth, but we suggest a 10x10' area to give the space needed for the full experience! There are times we can go smaller, but let's chat about it.
The backdrop is about 9ft wide and is best against a wall of sorts. And there are quite a few backdrops to choose from! Depending on your event and desired look, we got you. Custom made backdrops are available too, whether you provide them or we make 'em.
We can also do a very affordable headshot station or step-n-repeat station with this guy. Super flexible. Super fun.
