2018, A recap through the lens of Venice Paparazzi

Happy New Year!  2018 was an epic year for Venice Paparazzi that ended with a bang.

We did 19 events in December alone.

The traffic on our websites was massive as our media brands continued to reach new eyes. Our photography agency handled about 160 events this year, with 55 of those being right here in Venice.

The star of the year however was our super fun, touch screen Venice Paparazzi photo booth.   It added much joy to scores of events and it just keep getting more popular.  We enjoyed the heck out of ourselves while working and it was great to see all of your smiling faces around Venice.   Cheers to you all!

2019 looks to be even brighter. We are already booked into the summer and are expanding our photo booth division around the nation.  As well, our photography and videography teams are full of  bright young stars that continually raise the bar for what event photography can be. 

If you are a local business and want more customers, we should talk.  Venice Paparazzi, and our related media brands, have a large, ever growing, organic readership of people who live, work, or visit Venice.  Our promotional packages are proven, cost effective, and deliver big ROI.   Shoot us an email or give us call,  and let’s talk about partnering up for 2019! 

In addition, if you are planning an event in 2019, consider adding the Venice Paparazzi photo booth as an activation.  On the spot, branded prints, instant text and email, GIFs, slo mo vids, etc, coupled with our hi energy photo booth assistant,  event themed prop table, and slick pro set up, add immeasurable value and fun factor to any event. 

Thank you, and have an epic 2019!
