About

On WeddingWire since 2022

Our gorgeous mirror photo booth delivers a one-of-a-kind experience and studio-quality photos that’ll have you and your guests raving.

Inspired by the elegant simplicity of Scandinavian design, our freestanding photo booth will elevate you and your wedding. Using a two-way mirror and remote trigger, participants choose how and when to capture themselves. Images are immediately available for users to download and share to social media.

The photo booth is versatile, portable, and has a compact footprint. From intimate boutique weddings to larger experiences, our kit can complement any occasion. Designed for beauty & utility, it compromises on neither.

More Than Just a Photo Booth

The Self-Portrait Project was founded with social justice ideals as its roots and a love of photography as its driving force. We are culturally curious, socially conscious, and harnessing the communicative power of photography.

As a values-based enterprise we believe in gender equality, marriage equality, and that other worlds are possible. We believe that Black Lives Matter. We stand by Standing Rock.

The First and Best of its Kind

Established in 2009 in Brooklyn, New York, the Self-Portrait Project has benefitted from the eye and direction of National Geographic Traveler award-winning photographer Andy Lin, who for the last 13 years has overseen the taking of almost one million portraits across seven countries and 19 U.S. states by almost 100,000 participants.

The Self Portrait Project Saved My Wedding

First, you will not get better quality pictures from any other "photo booth" style photography set up anywhere else. I have seen them all, have been to a million weddings and events and the Self Portrait Project is hands down, the best. The lighting, the background, the camera height, right down to the remote, it's all just perfect and every photo is absolutely beautiful. Second, Andy, besides being an insanely talented photographer, is an incredible human being.
My wedding had been planned, like most are, months in advance... guests, rentals, DJ's, all set and ready to go... and then Hurricane Irene decided she was going to crash it, didn't care about anyone or anything, she was coming- invited or not. We decided to go on with the wedding plans and Andy, knowing that we were going to be hit (most likely a direct hit) and that there was a very high probability he may be stranded with us STILL SHOWED UP. This man and this photo booth saved my wedding. Had he not made it, our main source of entertainment, it would have been a disaster. It kept all of us having fun into the wee hours of the night, laughing instead of obsessing about the terrible storm just outside the barn that we were set up in! Andy did end up getting stranded, in fact he missed his Buck Hunter Competition that weekend in NYC because he was stuck in a hotel room in middle of nowhere Vermont, a competition he was the champion of for years prior. Point is, Andy will show up as a great human as much as he'll show up as a brilliant photographer. My hurricane wedding is still infamous among my friends, everyone who stuck it out still says it was the best wedding ever and I know it was because of Andy and that damn photo booth.

Highlight of our wedding

Andy and Heather were amazing. Although we had a photographer and a QR code for uploading photos from the guests, the photo booth was by far the runaway hit of the wedding, even beating the sushi boat! 10/10 must have if you want guests to have a keepsake opt in for the printer as well.

Absolutely STUNNING photo booth

If you want utterly STUNNING, high-quality photos that you and your guests will obsess over, hire The Self-Portrait Project. First of all the look of the "photo booth" is super minimal and classy. Second, it's super simple and easy (and fun!) to use. Third, the images are leagues beyond any other photo booth I've seen! They're bright, flattering, sharp, bold, and really dynamic. If you opt to add in printing (and you should) the hard copies that come out are TOP QUALITY! If you care about photography, this is the photo booth for you. Plus, the team was friendly, professional, and really easy to work with. They were incredibly flexible and patient when it came to booking since wedding planning can be hectic and stressful, and I am SO glad I got them for our event.
