About this pro

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I enjoy making my clients happy. If they are smiling and laughing throughout their event, then I know I did half my job. If they are still smiling after their event, perhaps while looking at their guests snapshots, and being able to reminisce- then I know successfully did my job.

    Best photo booth ever!
    James was great to work with! He was fast to respond to our questions, and willing to go the distance to help customize our photo background. The pictures all came out great and the guests all loved the quality. Stephany who was operating the photo booth was also very pleasant and helpful! Thank you!

    Funky entertainment, Inc was a huge hit at my party everyone loved it! I've been to a party where the attendee was standing around not collecting the pictures for the photo album and on their cell phones the whole time. The attendee at my party was awesome! She made sure we had the pictures for the photo album and so helpful and it looked like she even had a good time too! They're friendly and professional, I would definitely recommend them and use them again for another party. Thank guys!!

    Hired James of Funky Entertainment for my son's Bar Mitzvah. What a great experience! So nice to deal with and extremely accommodating. Incorporated my son's theme into the pictures, the pictures were a great quality, and everyone had so much fun with it. James delivered exactly what we expected and then some. I would highly recommend them!
  • Charlotte H. Oct 20, 2015
    What a great company! We found Funky Entertainment at the last minute before our wedding. James was outstanding and has great attention to detail. He was patient in the decision making process, and made sure everyone was on the same page, including my husband and I, as well as everyone at the venue. He took time to visit the venue to ensure a smooth running of the photo booth. His staff are friendly and lovely and happy to be working. The whole experience was a great pleasure!

    The photo booth was great. The props were cute and fun! James was so nice. The photo strips turned out beautifully and you could even email them. Highly recommend!

    I recently used the photo booth service from Funky Entertainment, Inc. for my daughter’s Sweet Sixteen party. James (the owner) was such a pleasure to work with both before and after the party. He as well as the photo booth attendants, Stephanie and Fran were the best. Very professional and extremely helpful, especially Stephanie who went above and beyond her services. Keeping with our theme, James selected the best backgrounds, props and custom designed logo that printed at the bottom of each strip. I also loved that they printed multiple strips (so everyone got their own) as well as duplicate strips. The picture quality was superb. Our guests loved the photo booth and it was a great addition to my daughter's fabulous Sweet 16th.
  • Karen D. Sep 24, 2015
    Funky entertainment was so much fun at our reunion that we had them again a month later at another event. Highly recommend them!
  • Dennis D. Sep 18, 2015
    Great time and fun for all. Everyone enjoy the "booth"! Made for lasting memories with great friends and family. I would highly recommend the "green" backdrop to all to make your event even more special. The staff at Funky Entertainment are great too. Highly recommend their services.

    I hired Funky Entertainment for my daughter's sweet 16. They were amazing. Before the event, James emailed us different backgrounds for my daughter to choose. They arrived on time, they had lots of props. The kids loved them. They did everything they said they would do and more. We received the CDs from the event on the Monday right after the event. Thanks again James and also his assistant Fran did a great job.

    I would highly recommend Funky Entertainment to anyine who is having a parry. I can't possibly give Funky Entertainment enough praise. James is so friendly while maintaining a very high level of professionalism. He made my nephew's graduation the success that it was. The memory book is a reminder of what a wonderful time was had by all. James is going to go a long way with his company!

    On July 12 I hired Funky Entertainment Inc to supply a photo booth for my daughters high school graduation party. Believe me when I tell you how wonderful everything turned out! James the owner was very helpful with all our requests and the two photo booth attendants were great! They arrived early for setup, extremely accommodating and helpful. Their price beat every other companies pricing and was well worth it. I would definitely hire them for another party and I tell others to contact them for their next party! Thank you for great pictures and memories. Thank you. Terryann Mammarella

    We used Funky Entertainment's photo booth for our 8th grade dinner dance. James was so personable and patient with some very excited 8th graders, in addition we chose 4 green screens for pictures, and James brought costume props as well. The kids had a blast, and James made their experience fun, and mine, as the advisor running the show, EASY! We will be using Funky Entertainment again, and because of the great price and James's professionalism, we are making his photo booth our new tradition!

Q&A

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Yes, I research new products and technology on a weekly basis, if not on a daily basis. I am always in touch with manufacturers to see what product upgrades they have to offer and my goal is to start attending conventions annually.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I always enjoyed working events, whether it was cater waitering in between gigs, planning events for family and friends or simply prepping for the holidays. After years of dabbling in the Insurance Industry and attempting to pursue a career in Law Enforcement, I realized it was time for me to make some serious changes. And here I am, proud owner of a small business in the Event Industry.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Our clients provide us with fun loving guest, and in return we provide them with memories that last a lifetime. We offer the red carpet treatment if they wish, classic backgrounds, custom backgrounds and lots of fun and exciting Props to help capture those fun moments in our photo booths!
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
My advice for you would be, A) make sure you feel comfortable with the vendor you are choosing to hire. B) most of the time I would say, "go with your gut instinct." C) express what you expect from the very beginning, and hopefully there will be little to no miscommunication. D) as they say, you get what you pay for. Some prices may seem to good to be true, which means they probably are, and some might just not fit your budget. You should find a happy medium, but you may have to sacrifice a small detail in order to budget accordingly. We, at Funky Entertainment, try to accommodate most budgets.
