What is AWESOOS?
Well, the idea of it is simple enough, but it has always been tough to explain. So, without going into an elaborate babble, I hope the infographic down below conveys the concept in a much better fashion. But first, coffee anyone?

times we have made people snort profusely
times Photoshop has been requested to alter reality
We’re a mini event within an event! Say what?!
Our unique combo platter of hassle-free, photo wrangling entertainment, will produce barrels of laughter and an eternity of smiles. Our tactics have been methodically proven to vanquish any of those dastardly camera phobias!
So, saddle on up with us and be the entertainment hiring hero!
Introducing our full-service, Awesoos Entertainment photo wrangling platform! And for the most optimal experience we typically like to see about 120-150 square feet (at most) of free-flowing photo wrangling space.
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™ (see more)
Our guests stand in front of this big ‘ol mirror and the magic will start here!
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™ (see more)
Our guests also stand in front of this before we start snapping away!
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!
Both of our marveling products can reignite any dainty appetite lacking in the consumption of these essential photo nutrients: Props, Poses, and Picts. We’ll be firing up those amygdalas in a blaze of glory!
Feed your Beast with A dopamine Feast!
Our hassle-free experience comes with a few huge perks and that requires a full on-site team to pull them off. 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.
The Prop Wrangler
Who wants to see a chaotic prop table? Our Prop Wranglers will keep everything in check.
The Photo Wrangler®
We take a full-on candid approach because we like to capture the best snorting moments.
The Print Wrangler
Be rightfully greeted with a hand-delivered, freshly dye-sub’d photo keepsake.
Looks insanely pricey?
Our product essentially holds the same intrinsic value as this foodie equation…
( $ amount of one plate of food ) x
( 180* ) x ( # of event hours ) =
EST. TOTAL $ AMOUNT
*180 is the potential—number of visits—made to the buffet line within a hour.
For every visit, our product produces a single captured moment in a simple tangible format—a photo wrangling experience—eternally emblazoned into each photo keepsake.
So, which would you value more as one of the highlights of your event? A plate of savory food—OR—a printed memory with an emotional appeal?
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?
Do we have liability insurance?
Covered up to a million bucks.
Do we have high-quality props and signage?
Do we custom design “step-n-repeat” backdrops?
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.
What events mesh well with this?
If you’re still looking for added entertainment value or more specifically, a photo booth platform, then we can pretty much cover any type of event you want to throw at us. Just as long as we’re not prioritized into your “left over” budget.

Explain the experience part, again?
It’s a ratio of 2% high-tech gimmickry and 98% of hassle-free, candid-popping, instantly-gratifying, laughter-ensuing, spontaneous photo wrangling fun.
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?
We typically don’t have shot limits or time limits, but the guests waiting in line sure do!
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?
Welp, we’ve been booking as far as six months in advance. Three months or more is ideal. So, I probably wouldn’t hesitate too long.
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 (or less) in advance will depend on our availability and it will include a 25% (oh-my-goodness) fee to your quote. Oopsies.
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?
Oh, you’re ready to go, eh? Simply click here and we’ll get you started!
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!
