Smile Laugh Share is an amazing photo booth company serving the greater Charlotte area.  Owner Shannon Josey truly has a passion for capturing fun memories and it shows in every wedding she takes part in. These luxury award winning open air photo booths offer an undeniable first class experience, that brides will always cherish.  And let me tell you that it is clear that Shannon really loves what she does! Since she is so wonderful, I decided to sit down with her, to get the skinny on all things Smile Laugh Share.  Here is what she shared:

How many weddings do you generally do per year? 

I do about 50-60 weddings a year in addition to many other events.  I have a boutique business model so I am not looking to book every client but the right one that is looking for something different than the standard photo booth.   My goal is to create a booth set up that compliments the décor chosen by the bride and create a memorable experience for them and their guests.

What are some of your favorite “different” things you have seen couples do at their wedding?

One of my favorite experiences was when the bride and groom along with the wedding party did a choreographed show to Disney songs with props.  It was hilarious and very cute.  The couple met while working at Disney so it was extra special.   Anything that shows the personalities of couples or little details that mean something to them about their relationship is always sweet.

What is your favorite part about working in the wedding industry? 

I love the variety and the artistry of this industry.  Having a BFA in art and getting to use it on a daily basis is very satisfying.  I love working in various locations each week and working with different vendors.  I have met some amazing people and many I consider good friends.  I feel really blessed to do what I do.

Best piece of advice to a newly engaged couple?  

Don’t put on a show for everyone else, this is your day so make it about you.  If you feel like the process it overwhelming, then hire someone to help.  This should not be a stressful time but a time of excitement and at the end of the day it is a day to get married to start a marriage.   Oh!  And of course, hire a photo booth.
