Christmas Craziness Commences

The silly season is upon us, so it’s time to relax, pop the champagne, and celebrate what a huge year it’s been with your friends, family or colleagues.

This year has been exceptionally busy for the KeepSnaps team: with over 100 event days, more than 20,000 photos printed, thousands of new Instagram followers, and over 60 flights across Australia.

But, we’re not done quite yet.

We still have some beautiful weddings, Christmas parties, and New Years Eve celebrations to be part of before we can put a huge *TICK* next to 2016.

Are You Getting The Most Memories From Your Instagram Photo Booth?

You’ve probably thought long and hard about making your big event just perfect! One of your friends or colleagues suggested you hire an Instagram printer cos they’re “so much fun”!! So you’ve done a Google search, and ended up here reading this!

Well your friend would be correct. Instagram printers add that extra bit of fun and laughter to your big event, while giving you guests a take home memory that they can stick straight on the fridge or on their desk at work!  They are a modern day version of a photo booth, and best of all, no booth is required!

To make sure you can get the most memories out of your KeepSnaps Instagram photo booth, we’ve put together a little guide for you.

Here are our top 6 ways to ensure you get the most out of KeepSnaps.

  • Signage. A large sign, or small cards to pass around letting people know how to play is vital so guests can get involved.
  • Position: Think about positioning KeepSnaps somewhere central and visible or next to a ‘Insta-worthy’ backdrop.
  • Speech: Ask the MC or host to mention the hashtag during speeches as this will ensure everyone knows how to get involved.
  • Prize: Think about rewarding the best photo with a prize at the end of the event. Or with our system we can randomly pick a winner for spot prize throughout the event.
  • Hashtag: Choose a short, and easy to remember hashtag. But make it unique enough that random photos won’t print out!
  • At large events, ensure all your staff (or friends) get on board and start snapping as it only takes one to start the trend.

People Watching at Caulfield Racecourse #DjsRacing

KeepSnaps was invited to be the official unofficial phone photographer at the David Jones marquee for all three Caulfield Race Days.

By ‘unofficial phone photographer’ we mean, snap photos on the phones of A-list guests such as Nadia and Jimmy Bartel, Olympia Valance, Ricky Ponting, Jessica Gomes, and Elyse Knowles and Bachelorette winner Lee.

What an amazing week of fashion, fun and fotos! Plus we had our special phone chargers set up to keep everyone snapping all day.

Thanks to everyone who got snap happy with us! See you next year x

#AmpYourShake

When Aeroplane Jelly asked us to be part of their new launch of Freakshake toppings and sauces, we were pumped!

Picture giant shakes, with cream, donuts, pretzels, lollies, sprinkles and smarties in one big cup. Sounds delicious, it was!

Luckily it was school holidays, so kids had plenty of time to burn that sugar off!

Thanks for having us!

#Luma25

Happy 25th Birthday LUMA Research.

We’re thrilled the KeepSnaps Instagram printer could be thee to help you celebrate your 25th birthday in Melbourne in style.

Teaming up once again with our friends at Letter Lights to create a spectacular photo opportunity,  the night was a fun filled event at the breathtaking Alto rooftop in Melbourne CBD.

We printed plenty of photos of the guests, clients, and staff at the corporate birthday bash. They will surely adorn office walls and fridges for years to come, as a perfect momento of a fun night, but also of 25 years of hard work.

“Thanks so much! It was such a great night any everyone loved the photos = such a cool thing to do!” Lovely feedback from the organiser Bonnie.

#PlusMiniMelbLaunch

Last weekend we helped Yamaha launch their new new mini portable speaker at a private movie screening at Hoyts Melbourne Central.

With guests such as bloggers and PR in attendance, it was the perfect style of event to incorporate the Instagram hashtag printing, not only to encourage the use of the hashtag, but also so guests can take home a cute branded momento from the day.

Thank you to Hoyts Australia MELBOURNE CENTRAL, KeepSnaps everyone who attended and to our sponsors Belle Balloons Sweet Mickie ! We had an absolute blast and we hope you did too!”

Celebrating National Vegemite Day with 5SOS

Vegemite teamed up with 5 Seconds of Summer to launch the inaugural National Vegemite Day. At Fox FM rooftop in Melbourne the secret event was hosted by radio hosts Angus and Emma and only 150 lucky guests got to attend (and us 😮 )

We were there to capture all the photos of the handsome lads with the hashtag #beatthemiteydrum and print them for the excited guests to take home.

A long weekend of weddings

The best thing about having KeepSnaps at your wedding is scrolling through all the images on the hashtag the next day and all the memories flooding back!

The winter long weekend saw our last flurry of weddings before winter REALLY kicks in, with a beautiful rustic wedding in Melbourne and simply elegant wedding in Sydney.

It was great to see our winner from last years huge Instagram giveaway with Letter Lights, Madeline use her prize and we were so happy to see the guest get involved and make the most of KeepSnaps.

And thank you to our lovely couple in Sydney who had a wonderfully colourful Indian wedding at Oatlands House.

If you’re thinking of having KeepSnaps at your wedding, here are a few reasons the KeepSnaps Instagram printer is better than a photobooth:

1. No one has to leave the party to go and hide in a booth, they simply snap photos throughout the event, post them to Instagram and add the hashtag to print.

2. Instagram printers only need a very small area to set up in, so no need to relinquish precious floor space for a big booth set up.

3. The photos print out in just 15 seconds, meaning your guests don’t need to be lining up to collect their prints. They can also easily reprint photos from the computer screen so everyone gets a copy.

4. Anyone can see all the event photos during or after the event by searching for the event hashtag on Instagram, so anyone who missed out on attending can still catch all the action in real time!

5. We can design the photo template to perfectly match your wedding them or invites.

Still need convincing? Read our rave review below from a recent wedding in Sydney.

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
