Meet Rosie the VW Photo Bus! Cincinnati and Dayton's newest VW Microbus Photo Booth
Completely customized and lovingly restored!
1971 meets 2020 with a perfect blend of vintage charm combined with the latest photo booth technology.
We bought a bus! We’re always looking ahead to the next big thing, so when the acquisition of a Dayton area photo bus company fell through we decided to build our own.
We got very lucky and found a 1971 VW MicroBus in good shape, only 2 hours away. After bringing her to her new home in Cincinnati we got to work.
The exterior was in really great shape, needing almost no repairs. All it needed was some branding, and it was good to go!
The interior, however, needed some love. We decided to refinish all the interior surfaces from the ceiling to the floors, with the exception of the red plaid bench to keep some of the original, vintage charm.
We originally ordered bamboo paneling but a supply issue forced us to revisit our selections. We ended up switching to birch paneling for the walls. After incorporating a little customization to the new selection, we actually like it better! The new bamboo ceiling looks incredible and the sea grass mats are just the right touch finish the floors. The final detail was adding the custom red fabric to the walls, which brought everything together and really makes the interior pop!
The rear of the bus was completely customized to create the ultimate VW bus prop station. First we added a partition, mounted a full sized, framed mirror and dressed it with vanity lights on other side. Then finished it off with a seagrass floor mat. This has got to be the coolest photo booth prop station ever!
Now that the interior was redone and looking great, it was time for the actual photo booth. This was a completely custom build, with the latest and greatest camera, lighting and printer. Rosie even has her very own internet connection so guests can email, text or share their good times with themselves or the world!
This photo really shows just how great the image quality is!
Add in some fun LED strip lighting which dances to the music and a THX certified 1000 watt audio system and it's party time! Finally we topped her off with a custom fabricated marquee sign, and our Rosie was complete.
We debuted Rosie at Wendy’s Bridal Show and took her for a test run. Everyone loved her, and we managed to fit 9 people inside at once! We’re pretty sure we also set the record for most brides in a VW bus!
With the lights, music, and props, Rosie is sure to be a hit and make everyone want to join in on the photo booth fun!
Our photo bus is sure to make a statement and add a vintage charm to any event.
As with all of our packages, the Photo Bus package comes standard with 4 hours of unlimited use, prints for EVERYONE in the photo, an album, professional attendant, custom photo strip design, and so much more already included! We proudly serve both Cincinnati and Dayton.
