Our Story

This is our story and we are sticking to it! 

Back in 2011, our family went to a cousin’s wedding out of town, and saw our first photo booth at an event.  It was entertaining and fun and laughter filled the air!  Such excitement!  There was a steady line to the photo booth, filled with people wearing silly hats, glasses, and boas, some holding up moustaches on sticks, all smiling.  My dad, who is normally a quiet, reserved type of gentleman; you know… he’s a grandfather, an observer of people and life, was suddenly transformed!

 He loved the photo booth.  He dressed up both his granddaughters and took pictures with them.  He took his sisters, his wife (our mom), and my sister and I.  He kept showing off his photo strips and laughing and talking about how much fun it was, and we all agreed.  It was a really memorable, fun time.  And…. Cheese Me! Photobooth was born from that day.   We brainstormed, designed, and developed our business from the ground up, all of us together. 

this photo strip features pictures of our team having fun with some silly props in the photo booth

We are family owned and each of us continue to have a part to play in the business (and YES, dad is an instrumental part)!   He inspired us to do something wonderful and beyond anything else, the photo booth experience continues to be MEMORABLE FUN for us and for guests of all ages.

"Cheese Me! Photobooth was a PLEASURE to work with! They had such a great set up! ALL my guests LOVED IT. They created our guest book from the photobooth pictures right there at the wedding where the guests signed by their picture in a scrapbook! They are kind and friendly people and they are the most affordable and best quality! I would recommend them to EVERYONE"

From the first phone call to the day of my wedding, Cheese Me provided amazing customer service. Kim Barlowe was extremely helpful and accommodating. After learning I was concerned about cost, she helped me choose a package that fit my tight budget. The photo booth was the highlight of my wedding! My guests had a blast taking pictures with the props provided and loved that they got to keep their photo strip. As a thrifty girl, I loved that this one vendor provided entertainment, a keepsake for my guests, and a memory book/guestbook for me. I would reccomend this service for any weddiing or party event!

I loved working with the amazing folks with Cheese Me! for our wedding. We really wanted to have a photo booth, and they were great. So many props to choose from, so great in helping everyone to take their pictures, and even helping to make sure my husband and I got into the photo booth before the night was over!! They also provided us with a book of all of the photos, and this is absolutely wonderful. Definitely something we will keep forever as a fun memento from our wedding day! I would highly recommend them for your wedding.
