Vanity Picture Booth is a passion project and collaboration of Chicago special event professionals. Our team is made up of individuals who know how to have a great time. Joshua Tammaro, founder of Vanity Picture Booth started the company with a goal of creating the best open air photo booth experience for every event. Joshua has been a documentarian wedding filmmaker for the last 15 years, attending an outrageous amount of weddings and similar types of events. In doing so, he has watched as photo booths evolved and carefully picked which elements he liked the best bringing them together to make the Vanity Picture Booth experience. No Shame Be Vain!
Meet The Team
Joshua Tammaro, Creative Director & Owner
Joshua can frequently be found traversing Chicago with a camera in hand since 2003, when he decided in a split second to move from the Sunshine state of Florida to Chicago. His passion for the craft of media takes the form as a Director Of Photographer for commercial and private projects. When he’s not telling your story, he can be found in any local latin social dance night near you!
Ian Vecchiotti, Host
After coming to Chicago in 2011 to study photography, Ian found himself immersed in the event world soon after college. Teaming up with a few fine people working in the industry led him to Vanity Picture Booth during its early stages. Helping to realize the photo booth and enthusiastically operating it became another outlet in addition to his slew of photography and video projects around town.
Shivani Kumar, Producer and Designer
Recently graduated from Columbia College Chicago, Shivani is navigating the waters and learning how to blend her passions as a Graphic Designer, User Experience Designer, and Photographer. Shivani is usually laughing about something, and is well known for being not funny -- which in itself, is usually funny. There is nothing she loves more than exploring the world and meeting new people.
Stephanie Smith, Host
Stephanie has been sharing smiles with fellow Chicagoans since 2001, when she came to the Windy City from the great state of West Virginia. She prides herself on making her way through life in many forms from Flight Attendant, Performer, Stage Manager, Office Manager, Event Planner, Yoga Instructor and now, Vanity Picture Booth Ham. When she’s not snapping photos, you’ll find Steph brushing up on anatomy, trying out a new recipe or dancing wherever possible.
