Our Story


It all began when

Doug Ellington built his first photo booth in 2010 when he couldn’t find a vintage booth to rent for his own wedding. However, he quickly realized he needed someone with a business degree and a winning smile to help take Photomatica to the next level. He reached out to his college track teammate, Matt Dewalt. A photo booth dream team was born.

Together Matt and Doug have successfully built over 100 photo booths and executed thousands of events over the years. What these two started has now grown into providing seven great people with full time jobs and over a million photos for happy clients. Photomatica now operates in six major US markets and their goal is to spread as much photo booth love as possible.



Our Mission


Our mission is to build the most beautifully designed photo booths and to have fun.  

We value the original aesthetic of the old school photo booths and our image quality leads the industry. We build our machines to last 100 years, with marine grade lumber and stainless steel frames, welded right in our shop. We use hand-sign painters, artists and designers to make each booth built in our workshop as unique as you.
