Hip Image team makes news for unique take on Calgary Photo Booths

August 9, 2016

Maybe you’ve seen Buttercup and Bert out and about Calgary delivering smiles and plenty of good times this summer. OR maybe you’ve seen us featured in the news.


Recognized for our unique take on the Photo Booth craze, we have dialed up the game by truly bringing “pictures to the people” (as we like to say).


Check out a couple of articles from this summer featuring the services and style of the Hip Image fleet and crew:

Calgary Photo Booth News Moments Magazine


A photo speaks a thousand words, especially when it is branded and styled unique to your event, and instantly shared on social media! As an event planner, an important step in the planning process is figuring out what makes your event different and better yet, figuring out how you will get people talking about it.


Jo Williams and Monique de St. Croix, the owners of Hip Image, have the perfect solution, a 1972 Volkswagen cargo bus named Buttercup!

Photo Buses flash onto Calgary streets

Hip Image adds seconds mobile photo booth


A year after converting a vintage VW bus into a mobile photo booth, the co-owners of Hip Image have snapped up a new vehicle for their growing fleet.


They’re reeling in double the audience with an old Boler trailer they’ve revamped into a second mobile photo booth.


“They’re funky, they’re appealing, they’re like a piece of candy,” laughed co-owner Jo Williams.

Aimed at creating a fun experience at events, a photo booth – even a mobile one – stands out in an era where a selfie is only a button click away.


Photographer and co-owner Monique De St Croix said it’s about the experience.


“The way that we have it set up is full of nostalgia and fun,” she said.
