#HiltonHawaii

When Hilton Hawaii reached out to us about their upcoming events to showcase Hawaii to Sydney folk, it was a very quick YES, that sounds FUN!

With two nights of action at their Sydney Hilton Hotel, we met plenty of bloggers, travel agents, media personalities and daydreamers who wanted to hear more about the stunning paradise island.

A backdrop wall was set up where guests could get photos with the two smokin’ hot models (who happened to be Brazilian not Hawaiian but who’s complaining!), and we’d give them their print out seconds later.

Whether you need help to promote your hashtag, want guests to take home a momento from the night, or a fun entertainment option during the event, KeepSnaps is here to help!

#SNP2016

We were honoured to be part of the wedding of the season at Le Montage in Sydney last weekend for the beautiful Stephan and Nicole.
What a wonderful testimonial they left us…
“It’s been so amazing working with Keepsnaps from beginning to end – you really added a unique touch to our day! Every time we look through our guest book and hashtag our wedding comes to life again and nothing will ever be able to replace the candid moments you captured. Not only did your team worked tirelessly to make sure every one of our guests got to take a special memory home with them, you also captured some of our favourite photos of the night and we’re all so incredibly grateful for that – thank you!! All our love, Stephan & Nicole X
The photos honestly look incredible and I can’t stop looking at them!!”

Happily ever after to the lovely couple!

KeepSnaps at Tough Mudder

Probably the muddiest photo ever

2016-05-07-43922258162633

We had an incredible weekend getting down and dirty with the Toughest Mudders in Queensland. As part of outdoor wear brand Merrell’s activation, we had a #merrellmudder giant hashtag that participants loved using as a prop. Safe to say, it wasn’t so white and clean by the end of the weekend!

Over two days we printed close to 1000 photos. Encouraging participants to get a before and after photo, they were excited to come back after the race and collect their photos that we’d pinned up on the wall. With big groups, we automatically printed duplicate photos so they could share them amongst the group.

Looking forward to Sydney and Melbourne later in the year where we’ll hope to smash our photo printing record!

#AGLEnergy

AGL are proud sponsors of Melbourne Victory FC, so as part of their pre game activations they hired KeepSnaps to snap photos of happy fans experiencing the Victory Village at all their home games in Melbourne.

We have so much fun at these events, there is always an excited buzz, and the families love getting a take home momento.

So far it’s been a streak of wins, so hopefully they can keep it up for the next few matches!

Go Melbourne Victory!

HOW TO GET THE MOST OUT OF KEEPSNAPS AT YOUR EVENT

If you’re thinking of hiring KeepSnaps for your big event or wedding, we want to make sure you have the absolute best experience, which means lots of photos and everyone getting involved!

So after working at 100 + events we’ve put together some key learnings to ensure you get the most of your KeepSnaps Instagram printer at your event in Sydney, Melbourne or across Australia.

Here are 6 things to consider when hiring KeepSnaps Instagram printer:

keepsnaps signage

Competition signage

  • A large sign with your hashtag placed in a central spot lets everyone know how to get involved. We have a basic one we bring to every event, however we can always custom design your own for an extra cost
  • Why not hand out small cards with the hashtag, or put placecards on tables, so people can play along while seated at the table. Or even better, hire the I Spy cards as mentioned here.
Birthday scavenger hunt game

Birthday scavenger hunt

  • Location, Location, Location. Think about setting KeepSnaps up somewhere central or with a pretty backdrop, or media wall to encourage photos to be taken there or upon arrival
  • Ask the host or MC to mention the hashtag during speeches.
  • Encourage people to post by offering a prize for the best photo, judged the next day, or at the conclusion of the event (and add this to your signage)
  • Always choose a short and easy to remember (yet unique) hashtag so people don’t use the incorrect hashtag.

#SayCheeseWithPrahranMarket

My name is Kathryn, and I’m a cheeseaholic.

It seems there are plenty of people in Melbourne who suffer from the same condition, as they all converged on the Prahran Market in Melbourne over the weekend for the annual Cheese Festival.

There were cheese rolling competitions, cheese tastings, cooking demonstrations, cheese giveaways, wine and cheese matching and so much more.

KeepSnaps was busy all day printing the happy snaps, and the giant cheese props were a big hit!

Remember we can custom design props for any event, just like we did for these guys.

Check out some of the best Instagram snaps from the Prahran Market Cheese Festival below.

#HappyBirthdayMargaret

We were at a very special event last Sunday, in Wagga Wagga in country NSW, to celebrate the 80th Birthday of Margaret, Kat’s Grandmas.

Now it’s safe to say most of the guests aren’t big Instagrammers, but what we did was have a photographer go around and take shots of the birthday girl with all her guests, then print out two copies, and give one to the guest, and stick one in a beautiful black guest book where they could write a special message next to the photo.

Safe to say, it was a big hit! So who says Instagram is only for the youngies! No matter what big event you’re planning, KeepSnaps is a great way to capture memories on the day.

Happy Birthday Grandma!
