it all adds
up to fun
SUM Booth is a green screen photo booth service, specializing in instant photography at events, social gatherings, trade shows, private parties and weddings.
When you think of a "photo booth", what first comes to mind? Cramped, confined spaces and a strip of postage-sized photos of you and all your friend's heads smashed together?
SUM Booth wants you to rethink the possibilities of the photo booth, combining the fun of a traditional booth with the professional lighting and photography of a photo shoot and industry leading custom-built designs.

What makes SUM Booth different than your average photo booth or your typical green-screen event photography set-up?
We believe it lies in a key element: design
With traditional photo booths, design is an afterthought — it's a logo slapped on the print or an inscription along the bottom. When it comes to standard green-screen photography, the thought of design usually invokes images of people awkwardly placed in front of cheesy stock photo backdrops.
Design is especially vital at events and trade shows where photos are used to promote a product or brand, because every photo turns into a piece of marketing material that guests take home and share with others. What's the point of doing photo marketing if the photos don't even look good?
Immersive design, beautiful lighting and photography, and a fun overall experience — that's what SUM Booth is all about.
design + photography + you
The Live Music Capital of the World — Austin, Texas — is the home base of SUM Booth. It's known for festivals like SXSW and ACL just as much as it is for being the home of the Longhorns and the capitol of Texas. We service Austin and San Antonio locally, with nearby Dallas and Houston available for a small travel fee.
America's Finest City is the birthplace of SUM Booth, and it still remains a major part of our operations. A prime destination for tourists and conventions alike, San Diego is the home of major events like ComicCon. Our local service areas include Orange County and most of Los Angeles, with Las Vegas available for a small travel fee.
Although our local service areas revolve around Texas and Southern California, we regularly travel for events all over the world. From Tokyo to Vancouver, from Amsterdam to Miami, and from Montreal to Minnesota, our system is ready to hit the road or skies to wherever your next event may be.

Digging deeper into some of our superstar clients and our work with them.
From custom Yu-Gi-Oh! trading cards to immersive video game photos, Konami has really taken advantage of the diverse skill set of SUM Booth. It all started at events like Comic-Con, where we were tabbed to provide rabid Yu-Gi-Oh! fans with a chance to be on a card with one of their favorite characters. That work then shifted over to the video game side of things, where we allow gamers to pose in scenes of some of their favorite titles — such as Metal Gear Solid, Castlevania, and more.
Most recently, we were invited to be a part of the Tokyo Game Show, where we not only provided Metal Gear fans with 4x6 prints on-site, but also instantly uploaded them and assigned a unique QR code to each image so they could be viewed on the smartphones of guests in attendance as they left the booth.
Here's a sampling of some of the corporate clients whom we've had the pleasure to work with.
Our most common service package includes the following items.
Photo sizes ranging from 4x6 to 8x10, standard or custom photo frames and folders, live image slideshows on monitors or projectors, double prints and scrapbooking stations, social media integration, instant online galleries with unique guest access codes or QR codes, customized props, trading cards, photo buttons — in other words, if you can think of it, there's a good chance we can do it.
Are you interested in combining the power of photography, instant gratification, and your brand to connect with consumers and sports fans at future events?
We've provided our custom trading card service at everything from sporting events with the MLB, NHL, NFL, NASCAR and NCAA, to numerous entertainment events, as well as tradeshows, VIP events, employee rallies and conventions. The unique format of the trading card is perfect for brands associated with sports, since consumers and guests identify that format with the genre so readily.
Our award-winning designers work with you to create a card design that showcases and holds true to your brand's aesthetic. The card back is the most unique aspect of the trading card, allowing this customized souvenir to also be a piece of marketing material that guests will take home and cherish, and also show off to others, adding a real-world viral element to the promotion. The cards can be taken into the digital realm as well, with the images available to download, email and share on Facebook.
