The Fancy Photo Booth | Fancy Photo Booth Rental in Ohio

Fancy photo rental dayton cincinnati columbus ohio

Photo Booths are a great addition to a wedding or event. Guests love them and everyone gets a great keepsake from the night. Unfortunately, we found most photo booth options a bit cheesy and ultimately not the right fit for many of our events. So, our “Fancy Photo Booth” idea was hatched. With a custom backdrop and photos by a professional photographer, it gives every event a black tie feel.

For our fancy photo booth, we bring our vogue style backdrop, a professional photographer, awesome looking lighting gear, and a viewing screen to offer guests an epic portrait(s) of themselves that they will actually love. It adds a little bit of drama and a whole lot of fun to events. Who doesn’t want to feel like they are on the cover of a magazine? 

What’s included? 

  • Our vogue styled backdrop
  • Professional photographer running the booth
  • 2 hours of event coverage
  • Basic Chair and stool
  • Instant viewing
  • Online gallery of images for you to send to your guests
  • Unlimited digital downloads and social media usage
  • 4×6 Printed copies of all images for bride/groom or business who hired the booth
  • All for $1700


  • Additional Time $250 per hour
  • Custom furniture (Prices vary) 

So if you want to add a little something extra to your next wedding, birthday, or holiday party, give our fancy photo booth a try!

Dayton Family photographer - The Carrs Photography

We get asked a lot, do you do family photography? The answer is a big fat, YES! It is the most wonderful feeling when a couple who hired us for their wedding calls to schedule a maternity session, newborn photos, or even just to grab some updated family photos. 

We say it a lot, but we mean it, the best part of our job are the awesome people we get to work with. We truly care about our clients. Getting to know them and sharing in the special moments is such a gift. 

Danielle and Todd are one of those amazing return clients. It has been so fun to watch this couple grow, change, and capture each life stage in photos.

Carrs Photography Gives Back: Project Jericho

Project Jericho - Dayton Photographer

Art is a superpower for change.

Dayton is full of people and businesses that are  invested in making our community great. There is a culture of giving back, paying forward, and helping your neighbor when you can. We are so proud of this community and are always looking for ways we can invest our time. A few years ago we connected with an amazing non-profit that uses art to promote life change for youth who are overcoming adversity and we knew we had found a great fit. 

Based out of Clark State in Springfield, Ohio Project Jericho and RISE believes that art changes lives. They offer a variety of camps, modules, and workshops in both visual and performing arts. For more than 2o years, they have been teaching high priority or vulnerable youth how art can be used as an outlet to build self-esteem and express emotions. 

From dance to watercolor, youth learn a new skill from professionals across Ohio. For the past few years, Michael has  been given the opportunity to teach the photography workshop. Watching these kids learn to look through the lens and see the world in a whole new way is astounding. This life of art has had such a huge impact on our lives, and to watch it inspire the next generation of creators is truly special. We are honored to be a small part of the work Project Jericho and RISE  are doing to transform lives and communities. 

Please consider how you might help!

6 Tips for an Amazing Engagement Session

6 tips for an amazing engagement session - Dayton and Cincinnati Engagement Photographer

We love engagement sessions! They are a great way to celebrate with your new fiance and show off your unique style. We realize being in front of a camera can cause all sorts of nerves (we aren’t all supermodels at heart), so we will give you tons of direction and take care of making you look fantastic. 

So how do you prepare for your upcoming shoot? Here are our 6 tips for an amazing engagement session: 

  1. Wear cute shoes!
    We love to photograph cute shoes and they really pop on camera. Consider this your invitation to go shopping. 
  2. Don’t be afraid to look hot.
    Pick outfits that make you feel amazing. If you feel sexy, you’ll look sexy. Don’t force yourself into an outfit that is uncomfortable. Stick to things you would normally wear. The right outfit will give you confidence and help you relax. And yes, this goes for girls AND guys. 
  3. Lean into color.
    A fun, colorful outfit will make your picture pop. Don’t be afraid to let your style come through. These pictures are all about you! 
  4. Find your vibe.
    Some people want to walk into the sunset, while others want to dance in the rain. Pick the time of day and location that suits the vine you want. We are up for whatever!
  5. Makeup is important.
    Pay attention to your eyes. Eyeliner and a good mascara are an absolute must. Your eyes will be the most important element in many of your images and you want them to pop! 
  6. Bring a prop.
    A hat, a jacket, a baseball bat, a surfboard, your favorite bottle of wine, your dog…anything that tells the story of who you are. It’s not required, but it definitely gives your photos something unique. 

Oh and don’t forget to have fun! These pictures are meant to reflect the two of you during one of the best times of your life. Relax, enjoy, and trust us with the rest!

Glamorous Studio Maternity Session | Dayton Maternity Photographer

When your client is the bridal stylist behind Stylish Little Mrs, you get pretty excited about photographing her maternity session. Alex absolutely blew us away with her glamorous studio session ideas. Is high fashion fairytale an aesthetic? Either way, she nailed it. 

Alex brought in one of Dayton’s best, Sherwood Florist, to create a bright and whimsical backdrop. She was stunning in a pink tulle dress by Manually Props, a fantastic Etsy shop based in Hungary. Her second look was a purple, one shoulder gown that was just as chic. Both looks were the perfect balance of soft and dramatic. Alex was absolutely in her element and that shows in every photo we snapped. It’s safe to say she can add a maternity stylist to her resume.

As you are thinking about looks and themes for a maternity shoot, we recommend going with something that is representative of your style. Is your vibe warm and cozy? Maybe a casual in-home shoot is for you. Do you like moody and shadowed? Let’s create a dramatic, vogue style shoot with looks to match. The possibilities are truly endless. Remember, you don’t need to recreate what is popular on Instagram at the moment. What matters most is allowing your personality to shine. We are ready to capture the authentic you, wherever that takes us!
