Your photo experience needs to be uniquely aligned to your brand, beautifully designed and energetically executed.

Hip Image is a collective of individuals who know that creativity and uniqueness only happens by bringing new things together in new ways.

Meet the energy behind the Hip Image brand and learn what sets this duo apart: professional event photographer Monique de St. Croix and P.R./brand strategist Jo Williams. This duo were the first to bring the VW photo booth concept to Canada almost ten years ago and haven’t stopped evolving since.

There are no limits to the ingenuity of this team. They know how to create the right solution for any challenge. They have created sets for client events that movie crews would drool —including giving Major Tom in Calgary a makeover for an Amazon “in the cloud” holiday event, creating an anti-gravity room for Brookfield, building an authentic Métis trapper’s cabin from scratch and much more.

Every staff member brings that unique life of the party energy to their job ensuring the Hip station is the hippest element of every event, with no aspect left to chance. Branded templates and a hashtag printer help to amplify the photos in the social media space providing ROI and brand recognition for your investment.
This Calgary-grown, women-owned, Métis partner company has turned the standard photo booth industry on its head since VW Bus Buttercup arrived on the scene in 2015. What began as a fun party favour side gig has evolved into a sought-after brand extension experience.
