We had the good fortune of connecting with Antonio & Samantha Williams and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Antonio & Samantha, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
My husband and I had always wanted to own a business but didn’t know what that business would be just yet. As we were planning our wedding and looking for photo booths it became clear to us that was our calling! We loved the idea of being able to make extra money together in joyous environments and helping people capture memories that would last a life time! As we were searching for photo booths to use for our wedding, we came across a couple that were looking to sell their photo booth. We were so excited and asked if we could buy it from them. They gave us a price, showed us how to use it, and we bought it shortly after!
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
Our photo booth prints pictures on the spot right after the guest take their picture! This provides instant gratification and a fun party favor for everyone at the event. They can also take unlimited pictures, allowing everyone to get a copy and no one feeling left out! We make sure to take pictures and videos of all event and post them on social media so we can show future clients what they can expect with our services. It has not been easy growing, it requires a lot of work to advertise, and to make sure all of our clients are satisfied, however it has all been worth it to see the smile on their faces. We want people to know that they will be getting an unforgettable experience and that they will be able to keep these memories that will last a life time.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
We would take our visitors to spots in the DFW area such as the Fort Worth zoo, the Modern Art Museum, Bishop arts, Trinity Groves, Reunion tower. We would walk around and explore down town Dallas with there being so many different places to see there. For food, we will take them to eat at Spiral diner, Goldee’s Barbecue, Vegan food house and Melt ice cream, which are some of our favorites!
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
Without Johnathon & Soulsin none of this would be possible for us. They are the couple we purchased the company from. They immediately took us under their wing and showed us how everything worked. At events if we had any problems they would be available to help immediately via FaceTime or call. We are so grateful for everything they have done for us to get us to this point. Without them none of this would be possible.
