Photo booth rocks the boat on the Hope House Cruize for a Cauze

Hope House is a 245D licensed adult foster care facility based in Stillwater, MN. The first Monday of every August it hosts The Scott Zahren Memorial Cruise - Cruize for a Cauze. The night is filled with music, dinner, laughter and love as attendees cruise down the St. Croix in a river boat.

Monroe Film and Photo was proud to be part of the event as a sponsor, as well as providing our photo booth for attendees to make memories throughout the night.

Rae & Shane Cinematic Wedding Trailer: July 27th, 2019

Rae & Shane immediately intrigued us by their contact form. For their favorite movie, they put “The Fast and Furious” series. When we chatted, they agreed that the series was not a cinematic masterpiece by any means, but was a fun and silly way to be entertained.

They had a beautiful wedding day at 7 Vines Vineyard in Dellwood, Minnesota. It was a perfect fit for the small, elegant reception they had with close friends and family. And, of course, being at a vineyard, they incorporated the wine into the ceremony under the pergola. We felt honored to produce their wedding video!

StoryArk Festival hits the red carpet with the Photo Booth

StoryArk is an amazing nonprofit that empowers students to tell their story through sketch comedy, podcast, poetry and film. Their work culminates to a yearly production entitled The StoryArk Festival at the Phipps Theatre in Hudson, WI. Our photo booth was used on the red carpet for attendees arriving.

Nina & Stefan Feature Wedding Film: July 23rd, 2017

Nina & Stefan have one of the funniest first meetings we have heard during our time in weddings. They met in a parking lot in Houston and immediately hit it off. There was just one little thing that bothered Nina, however: that Stefan’s name was the same as her brother’s!

Needless to say they overcame the name and are truly an amazing couple. Working with them throughout the day you could just see the passion and love in their eyes every time they looked at each other.

Sara & Ben Feature Wedding Film: July 22nd, 2017

Was it “I like your shiny belt” or “Hey, nice belt”? No matter what Ben’s pickup line was, it worked like a charm on Sara during their college days. They both exude confidence and love meeting people and new experiences, which was evident in their eclectic decor and the wide variety of friends that attended. We absolutely loved Sara’s wedding dress with its elegance, and Ben looked like he born to play James Bond.
