I hope you’re all having a really lovely weekend.
Its an absolute joy to introduce you to Strike a Pose who will be exhibiting with us this month at our first of our #weddingrevolution shows in Reading. Strike a Pose offer a photobooth with a difference – not only that, its run by the ever so lovely Gabi – who’s on hand to help you create and capture those fab fun moments in a really lovely way. I caught up with a Gabi and asked her a few things about what she does….
How did you get into doing what you do?
Between the team we have quite a creative background in photography, graphic design, event planning and we all have a general love for handcrafts too. We all enjoyed the creativity side of our work the most and wanted to really put those skills to use.
So a few years ago, we started thinking what would be the best way of combining our skills to create a new and exciting project…. And we came up with the idea of a pop up vintage photobooth, that would provide a unique look with real vintage props, amazing photos and great fun for any special event.
What inspires you?
Our love for all things vintage, our love for creative photography and most importantly the individual personalities of our clients, we just genuinely find inspiration in the people we meet. It’s amazing how many ideas people come up with that can really change the way we look at a job.
So what is it that you do?
Strike a Pose Uk, is a very fun and creative pop up vintage photo booth, we are not your conventional boxy photobooth. We are more like an open photo shoot, with original vintage items as props and a very fun interactive system, that includes a vintage bellow camera and our vintage TV that delivers instant photo prints. Making our version of a booth, almost a decorative feature in the party room and making our services, the only one of its kind out there.
Another of our special features, is that we love quality and everything to look great for the day of your event, so we put a lot of time and effort into creating real vintage themes for your party, with real vintage props, bespoke background and prints. It’s very exciting for us, to help our clients have the perfect photo booth for them.
What do you love about working in the wedding industry?
We love bringing happiness to the lucky couples and helping make their day even more memorable. But our favorite thing is seeing all the amazing poses people have for our cameras.
What differentiates your services from others?
The dedication and attention to detail, with a friendly approach that we offer. And that we will always treat your wedding or event as if it was our own. Our aim is to make you happy on your special day!
Pop along to our Reading fair on January 25th to meet Gabi and strike a few poses!
