The Shooting Comet is a wedding photo booth company based in Ada, Michigan, featuring a repurposed vintage camper. Family-owned, Trish, Dan, and their daughter saw the potential for an old camper and renovated the interior with bespoke benches and decor. This eclectic photo booth was a dream project for the family. Now working together, the company aims to give couples an exciting and immersive alternative to the traditional booth.

Services Offered

The Shooting Comet鈥檚 camper comes fully stocked with over 50 props from backdrops to fake mustaches. Couples can steal a few moments together to pose for some candid photos or capture those funny group photos with their guests. The company provides a selection of photo options for guests to take home, from customized classic strips to online gallery access via mobile phones. Couples can include scrapbooks for a well-rounded experience.

Kind, fair and very easy to work with!

Due to COVID-19, we had to change our May wedding plans and were not able to use The Shooting Comet as we won't have enough guests! HOWEVER, I still want to write a review because from the very beginning, Trish was NOTHING but the kindest, most helpful and supportive vendor. She was extremely flexible and always messaged me back when I had questions about things very promptly. I'm beyond disappointed, and I would highly recommend Trish and her family to any interested bride. Having done a lot of research, they are fairly priced for what they offer! Plus, the camper is SO CUTE. You will not be disappointed :)

Hamilton High School Prom 2021 ~ Under the Moon and the Stars

Trish and her husband and daughter went out of their way to make our Prom photobooth absolutely amazing! From the special signs, cool props and decor of this unique photo booth down to the lace banner and twinkling cookie cutter star lights to highlight the prom theme and the photo strips that matched the font on our tickets, the attention to detail was superb! The prom committee would highly recommend them for any party and I personally will be keeping her business card for future events. Thanks Shooting Comet and Trish for helping to make the Hawkeye鈥檚 Prom unforgettable!

Above and Beyond

Although Covid has foiled my plans of being able to have them as my photo booth for my wedding Trish was nothing shy of amazing! She was completely understanding and patient with me trying to figure everything out. I would use them over and over if I could!!

Owner

We'd like to introduce the faces behind The Shooting Comet camper. First up is our daughter, Chloe. She's an amazing almost 15 year old who could set up the entire camper by herself at this point. The only thing she can't do is drive it. She keeps everything organized and assist guests in making sure they take fantastic pictures!

Dan uses his talents to manage the finances and make any creative projects come to life. When you admire the Comet's bespoke interior, you are admiring his handiwork.

Trish, the official owner, does all the marketing, social media, emails, etc. She is constantly on the lookout for cute items to add to our collection.

We started this business so we could work together as a family and help people create lasting memories through pictures. And in the process it's brought us so much joy!
