I am desperately searching for an old school, film photobooth in the DC area. I really want to use a strip of photobooth pictures for our save the dates, like this:
Now, I know I can replicate this idea at home or go with a digital photobooth. But I really love the idea of an honest-to-goodness film and chemical developer photobooth. Has anyone seen one in the DC area? I’m even willing to drive up to Baltimore.
FYI- I know there are tons of digital ones where you can print out your picture with crazy boarders and what not. I don’t love these booths because 1) the picture quality isn’t as good and 2) the colors tend to fade within a few months. I’ve had the old school developed strips that have last decades. I know it’s kind of hipstery, but I just like the film ones more!

Most of those vintatge booths you can’t print out the large quantity all in one batch as you’d want to for save-the-dates. Your best bet, and what they probably did in the picture you posted, is to create a mock photobooth at home – hang some curtains or something for a backdrop, use a camera or computer to take photos, edit them as needed to make them black and white, vintage-y looking, print batches on photo paper and cut them out.
For magnets (which you obviously wouldn’t be able to get anyway from an actual photobooth) you should look around Etsy, there’s a bajillion vendors with photobooth-style magnets/stationary.

Do you have any plans to go to the beach? There are photobooths like that at Rehobeth and probably other beaches as well. Not sure where you could find one closer to DC, sorry.
