And the vintage inspired photo booth was reborn!


We custom design and build photo booths. It all started a few years back when Doug was living in San Francisco with his wife and newborn son. Always a tinkerer, Doug thought of a brilliant way to combine his passion for things old and rusty, his love of photography, and his dream of owning his own business. Doug built the first Photo-matica booth at this time, using local products and neighborhood businesses wherever possible. The booth worked like a dream, and Photo-matica was born.

As the word about Photo-matica spread, he decided to ask me, Matt, to join the team. We ran track in college together and have known each other for 17 years. As Doug would say, I’m more buttoned up than a pea coat, which means my job is to ensure that every detail is followed through to perfection. I’m the brains of the operation, and Doug is the brawn. My passion is working with clients, creating an unforgettable photo booth experience.

We have enjoyed every minute of creating Photo-matica together. We love this business, and strongly believe we provide the best service in the industry. Our passion for photo booths, our clients, and spreading Photo-matica love is reflected in every Photo-matica event.

“If we could give more stars, we would. Doug and Matt with Photo-matica were professional from the get-go. As we had a million things going on with planning our wedding, the two gave us one less thing to worry about as their responsiveness to our questions, as well as follow ups and reminders let us know we hired the right company for the job.” Nat O. from Yelp

“Genius! These guys built an olde-timey photo booth around a high quality digital camera, and feed the desire for the vintage experience with the instant gratification we are used to. We rented a booth for our wedding, and it was the biggest hit! There was a line for the entire 5 hours, and we got some hilarious shots from kids and adults. The private booth brings out personalities in people that no photographer could ever inspire! and the photos are all hi-res, if you want to print them full-size later.

The Product is amazing, and so are the operators! They were the most professional, responsive, prepared, and fair vendors we worked with planning the wedding. I highly recommend this company!” Abigail W. from Yelp

“Matt and Doug were fantastic – I really wouldn’t go to any other photobooth shop! They were very organized and even emailed me about my event before I reached out to them! Thank goodness they were so on top of it – they thought of everything and it all worked out great.” WestVillGal from Yelp
