Our Story

The journey so far.

Funky Photo Booth is a brand owned and operated by local photography company, Solent Studios. Established in 2008 we were the first photo booth company on the south coast.

Being an important part of so many celebrations is a privilege and we love what we do.

The journey so far

Founder, Rob Dunning builds the first Funky Photo Booth after an inspired trip in Las Vegas.

Our first wedding client is Jacqui, the best friend of Rob’s wife Becky.

The booth went down a storm.

It seems not only are we the first photo booth company on the south coast but one of a handful in the country.

We now have two photo booths.

It’s a very busy time.

Funky Photo Booth has gone from strength to strength.

We now have four photo booths in the fleet and employ admin person to keep on top of everything.

Five booths are now in the fleet and our reputation has meant bookings are up with very little in the way of marketing.

We start looking at ways we can do our bit to give something back and create an annual charity budget.

Six booths now make up the team and alongside our private party customers the corporate client list has grown with some quite remarkable names regularly hiring us.

All admin with the office is now paperless.

Rob becomes a first time Dad cool

It’s been a difficult couple of years after the market became flooded with cheap photo booths and poor quality mirror booths.

Fortunately the commercial photography and wedding photography part of parent company Solent Studios continues to grow.

While refusing to drop our service or quality levels to compete on price, we take things up a notch and invest in our first inflatable photo booth. The Funky Igloo is born.

Our classic booth count is now six and they are accompanied by two Funky Igloo booths.

Persistence of upping our game over dropping our prices are proving the correct choice.

We celebrate 10-years in business smile

Into our eleventh year of trading and we’ve upgraded our software systems and invested heavily in our vehicles.

We now offer boomerang gifs in our Funky Igloo booths and guests are loving them.
