The Best of New Jersey Photo Booth Gus Goodwin

Goodwin’s Good Time Photo Booth LLC

(732) 547-2962

Goodwin’s Good Time Photo Booth is a family run business that loves to make your special events, an event to remember forever. Your photographer captures the beauty and elegance of your affair; our photo booth captures the true spirit of your friends and family.
During the 1980s, we owned and operated a video production company that specialized in wedding video. Due to the demands of raising a family we were unable to continue working in video. But with the advancements in digital Photography over the past 5 years and the growth in popularity of photo booths (and the growth of our family); it was time to get back in the wedding business.
While researching photo booth construction, we decided we liked the look and feel of an antique photo booth. So we built one that would incorporate the new technology with an “Old Timey” feel.
The photo booth is a unique experience at weddings. All the guests at your wedding can use and enjoy the photo booth; from grandparents to grandchildren. The photo booth lets your guests take home a memory of the wedding that night. The Bride and Groom can review all the photos taken during the wedding in their custom scrapbook that night. The formal photographs will not be ready for weeks.
Unlike others, we specialize in photo booth only and we only do one event per day. We bring
back up equipment to every event and we are fully insured and license by the State of New
Jersey. So please visit our website or call for more information and let us take make your event

The Best Of New Jersey Once Upon A Time Mari Dattolo

This is What Mari Dattolo Does

Once Upon A Time, there was a Princess-or make that ten princesses, and a couple of princes. Even more unique to the story, is that they spanned decades apart, yet through a creative marketing campaign transcended time, space and cultures to now be simply referred to as ‘The Princesses’. Walt would be proud, but not surprised how these treasured characters could continue to delight children of all ages-including the ‘Dwarf’s favorite’-now over seventy years old! So, when her younger daughter portrayed that very character at a certain local family attraction in Egg Harbor Township, Mari Dattolo knew there was a new opportunity in the special events business. Having spent ten years as a Director of Marketing and Special Events in the Atlantic City market, this opportunity afforded her the chance to stay in her field of choice, after being diagnosed with early onset Parkinson’s Disease just a couple of years earlier. Having been a Girl Scout Leader for Daisy and Brownie Troops and raised her own two girls, she was no stranger to this demographic, from their crafts to special birthday traditions. Fondly named in honor of her own two, Little Events Princess Events was born! Spring brought the Magical Princess Tea, hosted by Little Angels to raise funds for a pediatric cancer research foundation. Cinderella’s Unicorn drawn Coach took young guests for a magical carriage ride through the neighborhoods, while indoors, they were entertained with a Magic Show, meet & greet with Princesses & Princes; a Kid's Zumba workout and a musical serenade by local musician, Kelly LaVigna. This summer saw the start of the Princess Etiquette Tea Series. Hosted by Little Angels at Latz’s By The Bay in Somers Point, young ladies were introduced to the art of taking Tea, as well as skills in dining and general etiquette. In addition to events and parties, Little Angels has developed a NOT FOR PROFIT arm-appropriately named ‘Heaven Sent’. This group of high school drama students, hailing from five area schools have taken on three local charities for sick and grieving children. Their special appearances provide these organizations with entertainment on their limited budgets, as well as a friend for a child in need. For more information on party packages and appearances, 
visit them at:

Mari Dattolo is also a wedding Officiant

We have worked with Mari Dattolo for a 
Charity event in Mays Landing and saw what she can accomplish
with her events and her little Princesses.
We highly recommend her services

Darci Doran Wedding Packages

Wedding show special: $1499

I will beat the price of David's Bridal, and the DJ companies out there selling photography packages, and I will tell you why you should trust your special day to me. I am dependable, and reliable, you know who you are getting. If you hire from one of these companies, or an "event company" you are getting someone who is subcontracted by the company, and paid very little. You do not know who, what, or when you will be getting your photographs. Believe me I know, when I started out I did events for these companies. With my services you will get peace of mind, and exceptional service, above and beyond. You will have access to your proofs of your images as I edit them, on a password protected gallery for your friends and family to see, and I will even post them to Facebook if you like. My time frame is 2-3 weeks for completion, not 3-6 months. I back up and save everything I do, should you ever require it, or like any photo products in the future. I want to be your photographer for life. A majority of my clients are repeat customers and have become my friends.

Here is what you get in this package:

up to 8 hours of coverage
an online gallery of your proofs ( favors for your guests with the password of your online gallery)
an edited CD of your images in approximately 2-3 weeks
a 30 page album of your photos
your choice of your favorite picture as a framed enlargement, or a canvas

All wedding bookings include a free engagement session.

I will include a memorable slideshow in this package if you mention you found me on Facebook.

I do travel as well

$500 deposit to hold your date, payment installments of 3,6 or 12 months depending on your date are available.
