Hi and welcome! I'm Beth, Create & Capture Photobooth's owner, founder, and currently, sole employee (AKA “us” and “we” throughout this website). Here's the page where you get to secretly stalk me before reaching out - I know, I do it, too. There's no shame in wanting to know who you'll be working with! So here's a little bit about me:
When I was a kid, I wanted to be a dolphin trainer when I grew up, which transitioned into a veterinarian, park ranger, classical pianist, teacher, photographer, and professor of philosophy. Somewhere along the way, the dolphin trainer dream died, so I went to school for classical piano (not for me), studied film photography (inspiring!), taught English in South Korea (the craziest two years of my life), and ended up with a master's degree in philosophy (surprisingly useful).
Naturally, that led me to a 10-year career in event planning and program coordination, but I was never truly happy working for other people. My independent, go-all-in, always-up-for-a-challenge personality was much more suited to opening my own business and being my own girlboss. Fast forward to 2014, and tada! Create & Capture Photobooth was born.
The best part of my job is creating something beautiful, fun, and memorable for the awesome people who choose to work with me. I truly believe we're all in “the people business” and authentically connecting with people is the most important part of what I do.
Iowa - Nebraska - Iowa (again) - New York - Iowa (yes, again) - Scotland - Iowa (last time!) - South Korea - Montana - California - Colorado!
Good coffee (Ozo is my fave local brew), climbing mountains, Harry Potter, cats, yoga, dessert and the desert, flannel sheets, bluegrass music, baking, sunshine, equality, getting lost in nature, and the Oxford comma.
Beth is a triple threat - she is super professional, prompt, and has an amazing personality! We loved her, our guests loved her, and they were still raving about the photobooth days later!
HIGHLY recommend Beth, one of the best (if not the best) things about our wedding. Beth goes above and beyond. She's responsive, creative, and willing to go the extra mile!
Beth and her photobooth are absolutely amazing! She was by far the easiest out of all our vendors to work with; coordinating with her was a breeze!
Beth was fantastic to work with, both before our wedding and during the day. She made sure everyone had a great time at the booth. Do your guests a favor and make sure you hire Beth for your wedding!
