WHERE DID YOU GET THE IDEA TO PUT A PHOTO BOOTH IN A VW BUS?
The idea for The Photo Bus came from our parent company, The Photo Bus KC which is owned by our good friend John DePrisco. John came up with it as he was looking to market his wedding photography business. In getting to see The Photo Bus first hand at his wedding in Kansas City we saw what a unique and creative concept it was and how people loved the experience. We decided that we wanted to bring the idea here to Cincinnati for people to experience from that moment on we started working with John to bring this concept home here to Cincinnati.
