Stella is a small, shiny 1966 Airstream camper that has been restored to house a classic photo booth with modern appeal. This compact camper is air conditioned, Wi-Fi enabled, and is small enough to fit outside and inside most venues.
It all begins with Stella the Airstream Photo Booth; a 1966 classic camper they found in a field in St. George, Utah. The summer of 2016, Valley natives Phillip and Brandi Walsh, their son Pearce and their bloodhound Roscoe hit the highway in pursuit of their American dream; to turn an iconic silver trailer into Arizona’s first Airstream photo booth.
Fast forward and Stella—the first in a future fleet—has been lovingly renovated to capture memorable moments at private celebrations and corporate events all across Arizona and surrounding states. Only 17’ long x 9.5’ tall, Stella is both compact and agile, taking up no more room than a full-size SUV truck and can be moved by hand-dolly to fit most indoor and outdoor venues.
One of their favorite aspects of the business is that the whole family can be involved, including their son Pearce. “He has been hands-on in all areas of the startup. From contract meetings with vendors to getting his hands dirty, degreasing hubcaps on a Saturday. We want him to feel like he’s a full partner. Hopefully this will grow to be a business that is still benefitting his children some day," says Phillip.
"Supporting local business is important to our family," says Brandi – and it’s why they chose to work closely with other local-owned businesses for everything from aluminum repairs, to the brilliant electric sign on top—fabricated by Signs of the Times in Phoenix. Many of the premium props have been purchased from Groovy Ghoulies costumes in Mesa, as well as an assortment of curiosity shops and antique stores the Walsh's have discovered during their Arizona adventures and road-trips beyond.
