About Us

Classic Photo Booths was launched in October 2012 at the Canterbury A&P Show by its husband-and-wife founders Mark Bamber and Brigid Rennell. Their photo booth business has since grown to be the largest photo booth operator in New Zealand, providing quality photo booth hire for weddings, birthday parties, school balls, corporate events and private parties.

With a strong focus on customer service, the business has attracted a huge amount of private and corporate clients with media organisations featuring them on TV One News, More FM and Canterbury’s own CTV. They are the fastest growing Photo Booth operator in New Zealand with services available in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.

The duo design and build their own photo booths in Christchurch and have developed four unique styles of booth including their Classic Photo Booth, Mini Photo Booth, Vintage Photo Booth themed set and Instagram + Twitter Printer. As well as providing state of the art technology in their booths, they also supply an exceptional range of handmade and imported props.
