Make memories,
In An Instant


You’re the star. We’re the sidekick. let’s party.

In An Instant is a space where you’re free to just be. It’s a microcosm of dress ups, imagination and clumsy collaboration. It’s a wonderland of colour and chaos, commotion and countdowns. And it’s run by two semi-adult misfits into dressing up. That’s us, Jess and Seb.

Moments are fleeting. We’re here to make booths that print memories to look back on bygone eras. But we’re an open air photobooth, so you have freedom to move and groove without the confines of four physical walls or awkward squish-ins.

There’s two options here at In An Instant: the Studio Booth and the Halo Booth. Let’s check in:

Studio Booth

Studio is super slick and profesh, with — you guessed it — studio lighting, a print attendant (the chaperone that makes sure your one mate doesn’t pocket all the pics) and a photographer on standby. It’s all fashion shoot-esque and a bit of a reverie for all the cover girls and cover boys out there.

Halo Booth

For autonomy and free-reign shenanigans, our Halo Booth uses an iPad, plus a ring light, to chuck you in the creative director’s seat. You can go wild on the socials, make GIFS, integrate bold branding and chuck in some cool custom templates. There’s only one rule: there are no rules.
Both booths have a mutual knack for unlimited printing and stupidly good times. They’re set against killer backdrops and bursting with even-more-killer props. Not like those other props. (We take props very seriously, but also very un-seriously).

And don’t worry your precious little party-ready heart. Whatever booth graces your soiree, you’ll never be left alone to your (awkward) devices. We’re party professionals, specialising in art direction. We’ll tell you if that pink sequined cowboy hat is on backwards, demonstrate our recommended pose, or hold down the fort while your favourite song comes on and you take a quick hiatus to the d-floor (again).

Press your booth prints in between book pages, plaster them on your fridge, squish them under your phone case or frame them for perennial admiration. Keep ‘em close and keep ‘em forever, so the party never really ends.

jess & seb

Just the slightest murmur of a party and we’re there. We are Jess Pace and Seb Alvarez, and we take photos.

Good photos. Memorable photos. Digital, Polaroid, mental photos. Flipping fantastic photos of people wearing outlandish props and laughing themselves sober.

In An Instant was drummed up in 2008 when Jess accidentally entirely excelled at setting up a mini photo shoot for a friend’s birthday. Like party ninja’s, Jess & Seb began to transform parties and events, making them POP with an added explosion of fun. The business launched at The Finders Keepers Market and they've been having a hard time loving their work sick ever since.

Seb’s a funny guy, just ask him. Or anyone. His dad’s jokes are renowned, his record collection enviable and his ability to talk shit on cue, admirable. Jess loves making pom poms, coffee (obviously), raw chocolate cake and making people’s party dreams a reality. Together we ride bikes, take adventures, go skating and laugh our way from event to event.
