What is AWESOOS?
I’d like to call it a photo entertainment experience, but this has always raised an eyebrow for the visually challenged. So, without going into an elaborate babble, I hope the infographic down below conveys it in a much better fashion. Enjoy!
times we have cranked up the smile dial
times we have made our guests snort profusely
times we have gracefully bypassed Photoshop requests to alter reality
They’re a mini event within an event! Say what?!
Our unique combo platter of hassle-free, photo wrangling entertainment, consistently produces barrels of laughter and captures an eternity of smiles. And our tactics have been methodically designed to vanquish any of those dastardly camera phobias!
So, saddle on up with us and be the entertainment hiring hero!
See that thing in the middle? The guests stand in front of it and it’s called the Marveling Mirror™. It’s our patented (7ft tall x 4ft wide) alluring monolithic beast and it’s a big ‘ol charmer for the shy types. We can also put in its place, the Marveling Mini™ (see below), which is a cuter (non-mirrored) photo unit, and it’s catered to fit the more footprint conscious events.
The Marveling Mirror™
But, where’s the flash strobe and the camera? Oh, they’re hidden within the mirror for an elegant and seamless look! And with its familiar comfort factor, 99.2% of shy guys/gals won’t find any issues posing in front of this beast.
What are those pretty lights? They’re there to keep those wandering eyeballs centered within the frames of your photos. Otherwise, your photos will have you looking off into the endless void of space.
The Marveling Mini™
We made this little fella for our footprint conscious folks. It’s perfect for those more intimate occasions.
The eyeball thingy bopping up and down is our ring light strobe! It packs a big enough punch to produce even lighting. The pair of freestanding “light rods” keep our area nicely lit! But, the best feature about the Marveling Mini is the on-the-fly height adjustment for those who are vertically challenged—perfect for the kiddos…or large pets!
Feed your Beast with A dopamine Feast!

A LITTLE TINY TIP
For starters, we’re HQ’d in the same city that accidentally created the chimichanga—Tucson, Arizona. Expect your guests to be playfully art directed and barraged with a plethora of instantly gratifying moments—all of which keeps your guests focused on the fun, instead of a learning curve. You’re going to love our on-site team!
The Prop Wrangler
The Photo Wrangler®
The Print Wrangler
Looks insanely pricey?
( 220 guests ) × ( $13 per plate )
÷ ( 4 hrs ) = $FOODIE COST PER HOUR
Instead of an aching full belly, every visit to our photo buffet produces an over indulgence of gratification in a simple tangible format—a photo wrangling experience—eternally emblazoned into each photo keepsake.
So, what would you’d like to value more as one of your event highlights?
Prioritize your budget and Jean-Luc Picard it—MAKE IT SO!
See my point now?
It’s not about just dropping off a photo booth and letting it run the show. It’s more about having a mini event within your event and that’s why…
You call the shots.
We bring the studio.
We are Awesoos.
Interesting concept, but what about…
Yeah, but what does it include?
Covered up to a million bucks.
Do we have high-quality props and signage?
Do we custom design “step-n-repeat” backdrops?
Yeppers and with the Adobe suite.
Do we display client’s photo backdrops?
If requested, we can do it!
Do we custom brand the 4×6 printed keepsakes?
Do we have mobile sharing?
Testing it this fall.
Do we create personalized special event blog pages?
Do we have supplemental walkaround event photography?
Do we have a green screen option?
The best in the biz.
Do we provide free access to online hi-res digital copies?
Yup, in 24 hrs or less.

Explain the experience part, again?
Remember the three “wrangler” titles up top? We LOVE to be 110% engaged with our guests and our on-site team will always have their afterburners on!
Your guests will be first greeted by our Prop Wrangler and bedazzled by our high quality props. Then once the guests move into photo range, our Photo Wrangler will be there to help art direct all their shots. Once the photos start displaying instantly on the big screen—the laughter begins!
After their photo sessions are complete, your guests are corralled together and herded to meet the Print Wrangler. This is where they pick up their hand-delivered prints, which are also inside fancy-pants envelopes, but we’ve got one more step.
After the keepsake handoff, we share a verbal cue to a link to their digital copies, which will finally conclude—our instant gratification process.
Step and repeat.
Your guests only need to focus on their “pose-n-play” parts, while we focus on lighting up their amygdalas and pumping up their dopamine levels!
Check out those videos and see how we do it!
How quick is the experience?
So, to gauge a fresh new batch of peeps, who are unfamiliar with the program, the average time for taking photos is usually 1-2 minutes (or less) and once the best photos are selected, a single glossy keepsake can be printed in 10-12 seconds .
How far in advance should we book?
A month in advance is cutting it close for the need of any customized items, such as the production time for a custom designed photo backdrop.
Two weeks in advance will depend on our availability and it will include a 25% (oh-my-goodness) fee to your quote. Any booking inquiries less than two weeks of your event date will currently include a simple— nope. Oopsies. Sorry!
Please note: To secure your event date, we request a non-refundable 50% deposit from your total invoice amount.
Alrighty, where do I get a quote?
INFORMATION OVERLOAD—I know.
But, according to Google Analytics your eyes didn’t actually glaze over! I’m kidding. Google can’t really see that, but Alexa sure can! Kidding, again! Thanks for stopping by and feel free to take the reigns from here!
