Meet Mackenzie 🙂 She can always be found smiling from ear to ear. With a smile as contagious as hers, it's one of the many reasons she is in charge of our smile-booth. She oversees and looks after all of our photobooth operations. She will call you before your event to get an idea of what you’d like your customized overlay to look like. She really enjoys making each photobooth overlay unique to the event and guest(s) of honor. Mackenzie will be waiting at the booth for you, so grab a prop and don’t forget to smile!
