About

The Portrait Guestbook is a wedding photo booth business with a twist that is based in Vancouver, British Columbia. With this, couples and guests can enjoy a fun way to capture candid portraits. A team of hosts is available to sit behind the camera, talk with guests, and click the camera into action. They entertain the wedding party while also offering the newlyweds a personalized photo book. Combining significant images with heartfelt, handwritten notes these albums can be gifted to the couple of honour as a bespoke keepsake that can be cherished for generations.

Services Offered

Owing to The Portrait Guestbook’s stripped-back appeal, it is ideal for those who would like a photo booth experience, minus the distraction of props or kooky frills. Offering a simple yet sophisticated service, it affords everyone the opportunity to mark the occasion. Individuals and groups of up to three people can position themselves in front of the camera as the moment is captured. These can be availed of as prints to take home, while digital files can also be attained to share online with those who were unable to attend. To create the bespoke book, everyone can write a message that is later used in a photo with some eye-catching decor. This is paired with the accompanying portrait and assembled in a beautiful book. This is ideal for whenever the married couple feels like reminiscing on their milestone event. The company’s attendants enjoy interacting with users to allow them to feel more comfortable, and they converse with them to coax authentic reactions. A variety of packages are available to choose from so that the couple can select their favourite option.

    The Guestbook of a lifetime!

    The Portrait Guestbook is a fantastic addition to your wedding because it provides guests with a lot of laughs and makes for an amazing keepsake. It doubles as an entertainment service and a finished product. Our guests enjoyed the process so much there was a line to get your photo taken and leave a note! When we received the images, they exceeded even our high expectations and we printed them to attach to thank you cards for all our guests. We absolutely love flipping through the pages and enjoying photos of our guests having a blast. Reading the cute notes they leave is the icing on the cake!

    Best Addition to our Day!

    We cannot say enough great things about The Portrait Guestbook. It was hands down the best experience that we could have added to our wedding. There was so much laughter (and happy tears) from all of our guests and 6 months later people are still raving about it. The physical book we received was absolutely stunning and impeccable quality. The joy it brings every time we look at could not have happened with a traditional book and we are so grateful we went this route. It is the most beautiful memento of the best day ever. We highly recommend The Portrait Guestbook to anyone who is looking for something fun, unique, entertaining and one of a kind to their event.

    The Portrait Guestbook's reply:

    Thanks so much Jessica! So happy to hear we were such a hit with your peeps.

    That backdrop worked out great too. So much colour in these shots.

    All the best!

    Highlight of the evening!

    Attended a wedding where Adam and Kev were the photographers. The experience left a lasting favourable impression, which turned into securing them for our Christmas staff event. The dynamic duo is professional from beginning to end. From email communication to orchestrating onsite - it was a seamless and perfect addition to adding fun and flare to our festivities. Adam and Kev are definitely masters at their craft - they are certain to enhance and elevate any celebration!

    The Portrait Guestbook's reply:

    Thanks so much Anne for both having us to the party and for the lovely words. The Pacific Derm crew was a blast. All the best in 2020.

    Would 100% recommend, blown away!

    We hired the Portrait Guestbook for our wedding in April and it was the highlight of our wedding. Everyone loved the photo booth and the photographer was so charismatic he had everyone laughing. They sent us a stunning book afterwards that is our favourite wedding keepsake. I would highly recommend The Portrait Guestbook to anyone looking to have "that extra something" at their wedding.

    The Portrait Guestbook's reply:

    Highlight of the wedding! What a compliment. I imagine the marriage part may have slightly beat us but I'll take it.

    So glad to hear everyone had such a great time.

    Thanks again Alisha!

    Pemberton guest book for a wedding

    We hired Portrait Guest Book to take candid photos of our wedding guests. They were incredibly fun and professional to work with and many guests complimented them and said this was the best part of the wedding, other than my partner saying ‘I do’ I concur that this was indeed a highlight of our day,

    Great value !

    Under the guidance of our wedding planner, my husband and I hired The Portrait Guestbook to photograph our guests at our wedding. Best decision ever ! Our guests had fun with the interactive photography, they had an additional party favor by bringing their photo that was printed on site home AND a few weeks later we had an amazing, high-quality bound guestbook with the handwritten notes and the photos of our guests. They also provided a digital gallery with an amazing turnaround time. I was happy with them that we hired the team again for my company holiday party as well. Thanks for everything you guys !

    The Portrait Guestbook's reply:

    Thanks Vincent! And double thanks for the referral to your office holiday party.

    We had a blast with your guests. You are surrounded by great people.

    Cheers,

    Amazing memories and SO. MUCH. FUN.

    The team at Portrait Guestbook were a breeze to work with. Communication via email was easy, they worked with our venue to visit ahead of time and scout out locations, and were in touch every step of the way. I can't emphasize enough how much fun they are. My husband and I weren't keen on a traditional guestbook or super posed photos, so insert The Portrait Guestbook. Now we have beautiful candid photos of all our guests and their hand written notes, plus they provided so many laughs for us and our guests at our wedding reception. You won't regret working with them!

    The Portrait Guestbook's reply:

    Thanks Laura!

    So glad to hear you and your guests had such fun with us. And it all happened without the typical wacky photobooth props. Who needs em?!

    I trust married life is going great. All the best!

    Amazing experience with Portrait Guestbook!

    Having The Portrait Guestbook at our wedding was definitely one of the highlights of the night. We knew that we wanted to have an opportunity for guests to have candid photos taken where they could be themselves, but didn’t want a “traditional” photo booth that are commonly seen at weddings.

    Our guests had so much fun interacting with them, and the pictures they take are incredible! The combination of spontaneous pictures and the handwritten quotes that accompany them is an amazing keepsake that we will actually look at and enjoy forever. The book is a huge hit with our family and friends and we’ve had tons of comments from guests about how entertaining our photo booth was!

    The Portrait Guestbook's reply:

    Thanks so much Allie! We appreciate you taking the time to write such a gracious review. All the best from the PGB crew.
