Find out more about the various parts that make up our wonderful company that brings you the best photo booth rentals for any budget…
Attractive & Real Photo Booth Experience
Attractive, impressive, fits your decor, and won’t tip over! The curtains provide just enough privacy to help guests loosen up and the magic of being inside a real booth creates one-of-a-kind photos that beat cheap table cameras, campy tent style booths, and photo tripods. Our booths also open up to accommodate large groups, so you get the best of both when renting a photo booth from Shining Star Photo Booth!
Professional Photography Hardware and Equipment
Our photo booths do not use webcams or other low-end photography devices. We use high quality professional Canon DSLR camera equipment – the same caliber of hardware you see professional photographers using. Our quality equipment ensures proper color rendition, contrast, exposure and sharpness. Unlike booths using low-grade cameras, our images are high-res and single frames easily enlarge to a 16×20 without any loss in quality. Our printers are lab quality dye sublimation printers that print true photos. We do not use consumer grade printers. Our printers are the same technology that you see in professional photo developing labs. This assures high quality and lasting images for you and your guests.
Professionally balanced LED lighting
Our lighting makes your guests look fantastic. When they look good, they take more photos, have more fun, and value their photos more. And you will too!
Lightning Fast Equipment
In a matter of seconds you’ll have that photo strip in hand. Get more photo strips in your guest book, spend less time waiting and make even more and better photo booth memories! Photo strips are printed immediately for your guests. We keep the fun rolling!
Easy as 1, 2, 3!
Easebility isn’t a word but it’s the only way to describe how easy our booth is to use. Simple instructions, a touch screen interface, pose suggestions and a video preview help create frame-filling and perfect photo strips every time. Simply view the screen and follow our easy and fun prompts. Our photo booth designs are fun, easy to use, and look great. Our attendants assure everyone has a great time.

Mark M. Reed
President & Chief Architect of Smiles
Mark Reed is the owner and Chief Architect of Smiles for Shining Star Photo Booth. Shining Star began operations as a part time wedding photo booth company in 2012 with one booth. At that time Mark was also the Director of IT/IS for a worldwide decor and framed art company. He was responsible for the global implementation of ERP systems, network infrastructures and the data needs of 19 locations worldwide. Mark saw the opportunity to get out of the corporate rat race and take Shining Star to much higher levels. Within less than a year and leaving the corporate IT world behind, Mark took the company full time and grew it to a 13 booth company with a staff of 9 that services events nationally with a core focus in the Mid-Atlantic states.
Shining Star offers a diverse range of photo entertainment services; from green screen images to lenticular 3d photos to animated gifs and photo novelties. Shining Star has forged a stellar reputation for bringing the best engaging experiences to clients. Shining Star continues to evolve into a leader in the corporate and consumer photo entertainment world.
