Patrick with Say Cheese Photo Booth

2 minutes of mistakes with Patrick and Say Cheese Photo Booth

Hello, I am Patrick. I am the "big cheese" behind Say Cheese Photo Booth. Actually, I am a little cheese, standing tall at 5 foot 7 inches. Here is a little dose of entertainment at my expense. This video represents a team effort to create a welcome video of sorts for our web site. I had the privilege of screwing up many times while trying to speak into a camera about our photo booth rental company.

Producing just 2 minutes of content was eye opening! I now have an even greater appreciation for the work that videographers do. I don't know the exact ratio between edit time and the "final cut", but I can tell you there is a lot of effort on the back end that you don't see. Everyone from actors to stage crew who work together to create productions at the Aronoff or Playhouse in the Park deserve a great deal of praise too. I can only imagine trying to remember hundreds of lines if you are a lead actor for instance. That's focus!

A special shout out to Ed Luft with Elegant Films, who helped to create all of our video content on the web site. In short, Ed knows his &@%*. He is a 5-time EMMY award winning producer and editor, working on various projects for Hallmark Entertainment such as "Alice in Wonderland" and "The Odyssey". He also served on the advisory board for the WB Network and played a key role in the syndication of "Seinfeld". Ed is no amateur, but I am when it comes to producing a picture perfect script.


New metallic style photo booth prints

Say Cheese Photo Booth revealed a new metallic print option at the 2019 Business Impact Awards with the Northern KY Chamber of Commerce. It was WELL received! The metallic color layer placed onto the paper produces very vibrant images that jump off the page and create a luxurious, high quality feel. Pictures of the prints won't do justice, so we made a small Instagram video to provide context. In short, these prints POP and will impress your guests, no matter the event type. These prints ONLY come with our "Sleek" photo booth and backdrop in 5x7 size. Watch this quick, video demonstrating what our new metallic prints look like below:

More print choices are coming, such as our new Instagram style prints. These 4x4 square images are fully customizable, allowing you to personalize your wedding reception with your color and text! Our new perforated prints are perfect for corporate events, allowing guests to receive their prints and tear off an attached coupon or ticket for redemption.

More to come! Rest assured Say Cheese will continue to innovate, providing new photo booth styles and printing options that will entertain and delight your event guests!

Say Cheese Photo Booth and Yield Coffee

Drink coffee. Change lives

Yield Coffee

Drink coffee and change lives? That's a deal! I just met Kyle and Luke with Yield Coffee at a bridal show and was impressed not only by the quality of the coffee and their knowledge and passion for roasting, but more importantly the sense of weight and mission they carry with their brand. These fellas are committed to creating sustainable development in Nicaragua and every time you buy their coffee, you support that mission. Learn more by watching the video below:


SRO Prints

I had a chance to meet Sara and Brandon Swinehart at a recent corporate event we worked together at Rosedale Bar in OTR. This locally owned branding company is the only woman owned full service, socially responsible branding company in the US. SRO seeks to positively impact the community by employing at risk adults recovering from drug addiction and they make a fine product! In 11 years of renting photo booths, this was the FIRST time I had seen on site t-shirt screen printing. People were getting their t-shirts faster than their drinks at the bar, in a few minutes. Crazy! This is a GREAT idea for your next corporate gathering, birthday party, or mitzvah! Click on their logo above to visit the web site or reach out by calling 865.604.0420.

"Live Painting" - Treat your guests to a mesmerizing experience!

Meet Mark Thesken, owner of Thesken Art and one of the most gifted people I've encountered. I recently had the pleaure of meeting Mark at the Newport Aquarium Bridal show after watching him craft a canvas masterpeice depicting a bride and groom in bright, vibrant colors in literally minutes. Mark's talents are nothing short of incredible and they can be applied to virtually any event type and he has the resume to show it. Mark has brought his "live painting" or as some describe "speed painting" to numerous charities, NASCAR, the Reds and Bengals organizations, NFL, US Army, and churches around the country.

Now it's onto weddings and it seems the ideas for application are as numerous as Mark's pallet of colors. For starters, you could hire Mark for either your ceremony or reception; both are a good fit. Brides and grooms can honor a special person (alive or deceased) in the family with a live painting. The bridal party can suprise the bride and groom with an impromptu painting, one that makes for the perfect wedding gift. Can you say custom?! Or maybe Mark can create his magic during a toast. However you scheme it, Mark will mesmerize your guests and create art that will connect on a deep level with everyone in the room! I can't help but think this will become a growing trend in weddings. Give Mark a call or text at 513.259.7788 or email at:

The Say Cheese Definition of Good Customer Service

Say Cheese Photo Booths WeddingWire Couples Choice Award Winner 2018

Only vendors with good reviews (and enough of them in a year) get this award. Good reviews come from solid customer service, which to us is:

  • FAST correspondence with email, texts, Facebook Messenger, and phone calls. In our "smart phone" world, we are all conditioned now to expect fast answers and that is what you get with Say Cheese.
  • Knowledge - Patrick can answer your questions from the technical side of how a dye-sublimation printer works to where best to place your booth inside your venue. 10 years of experience and thousands of rentals (that's "veteran" experience in photo booth terms)!
  • Approach - Say Cheese will never be "gimmicky", "salesy" or just downright pushy; not our style!
  • Referrals - We don't financially benefit from "kick backs", so any referral for another vendor is vetted through time spent with that person and / or company. They're a true, solid referral with our endorsement.
  • At your event - Booths are delivered earlier in the day before your guests arrive. ALL of our attendants have been with Say Cheese now for a minimum 3 years. They are friendly, knowledgeable, and professional!
  • Local - Say Cheese is not a national company that "farms out" jobs to a local affiliate using Groupon or Google Adwords to advertise. Ask your venue about Say Cheese. We're confident they will vouch for us!

Free Liquor Tastings with Images by Daniel Michael

Daniel Michael

Wedding photographer and friend Daniel Michael is hosting free liquor tastings once a month for the remainder of 2018. Yes, I said free. He is opening up his office in the Reading Bridal District to past couples, fellow wedding vendors, and engaged couples. This is a great opportunity for you to meet the team in a casual atmosphere and possibly meet other vendors in the process!

Each month will feature a theme, with a variety of selections to choose from. For example, March will feature a myriad of moonshine. You are welcome to bring your drink (even if it's not part of the that month's theme), and other beverages like beer and wine will always be made available.

I have met many wedding vendors across all categories over the past 10 years, but none as generous as Daniel. He really does strive to make a connection with everyone, vendors and couples alike. For more info and to view the scheduled tastings, visit the Images by Daniel Michael Facebook page.
