VW Photo Booth

The super-fun mobile photo booth

VW Van That Loves to Party

We can all agree that photo booths are a lot of fun. We can also agree that a 1968 VW van is fun too. So, we’ve combined the two and created the photo bus, a SUPER FUN mobile photo booth! It’s the first of its kind in Washington State and now you can rent it for your next event.

Just like our regular photo booths, the photo bus will keep your guests entertained for hours. Guests can choose from a selection of props, climb in and sit in the back seat. Up to 10 people can pile in and strike a pose.  A few seconds later you will have your very own photo strip to commemorate the event.

It’s perfect for company picnics, outdoor weddings, or any place we can drive up and park! 

The Photo Bus is only available to our Washington customers.

"How cool is that?"

“When I was told 1000 Words had a new photo booth built inside a 1968 VW van, I knew I wanted it at my birthday. Moondoggy was a huge hit not only for myself but all my guests. They rolled right up in front of our venue, opened the door and started taking pictures. How cool is that? My guests thought it was the best thing they ever saw and couldn’t stop talking about for days after. The staff was super cool too and seemed to be having as much fun as the guests. I would highly recommend hiring 1000 Words. Great Service, Great Fun!”

Meet Moondoggy

Moondoggy is a 1968 VW bay window van. He spent 46 years living life in California in search of the perfect wave. Moondoggy was lovingly cared for by his previous owner and it shows. He still sports most of his original interior with a few minor upgrades, particularly the LED lit hardwood floor and shiny red exterior. He’s always the life of the party, surprising guests with his unique photo booth setup and making everyone feel welcome inside his comfortable interior.

Our customers are fans

When we saw that Mike had a VW bus converted into a photo booth that helped us decide our theme for our corporate Summer picnic.  Summer of Love, 60’sThe VW bus was added décor and great focal point for the outdoor picnic.  The photo bus ran smoothly, provided a customized icon for the event and sent the link post event to share with the attendees.

End to end great experience, will use them again and again!

“1000 Words served at our daughter’s wedding this fall – we had the VW van parked outside the venue on Commencement Bay.  It was the perfect addition to provide guests with something fun to do in-between activities at the reception.  The photos were very high quality, and it’s a definite plus that you get them almost instantly being able to take them home as a keepsake is also a hit with guests.  We also really appreciated how Mike worked with us in advance to create artwork on the photo that perfectly matched with our daughter’s theme from her wedding invitations.  We’d highly recommend them for any event!”
