Most of our events in Skye wouldn't be as successful without the help from our vendors.  We work with different photographers, event planners, DJs. event producers, florists, the list goes on.

We are starting a new feature "Stars in the Skye" to showcase those different vendors that we love to work with. 

We are excited to feature Nashville Smile Bar.  They are not your typical photo booth company!

Jen McMakin, Owner, Nashville Smile Bar ~

I can honestly say that we feel like two of the luckiest people on the planet.

Before we entered the photo booth world, Ryan and I worked for years in the hospitality industry for a local restaurant group that opened our eyes to every aspect of customer service. That experience and knowledge was truly the heart and foundation of the company.

It’s simple, really: We all treasure fun, meaningful, and exciting experiences. Genuine, friendly customer service is key. The details matter. All of them, no exception.

Fast forward to 2016, when we launched Nashville Smile Bar, incorporating Ryan’s craftsman skills and photography experience, as well as my love of all things events and marketing. All of our booths are handcrafted locally (in our home workshop) from the best materials, and we’re proud to say that they produce the highest quality photos, prints, animated GIFs, and more.

Nashville Smile Bar is not just a photo booth company; it’s so much more. We craft custom experiences and activations for weddings, corporate events, conferences, charity events, birthday parties, showers, graduations, and the list goes on... Not only do we want guests to leave with a special keepsake (both in digital and physical form), but we also make it fun for guests to engage with brands and businesses at events and share their experiences through their social platforms. And our high-energy, friendly, and engaging team is at the core of all of our services.

The photo booth family that started it all:





SAMMY (our newest booth)

Although the company mantra, ”Be one with your inner selfie,” is a playful one, we feel it perfectly captures our fun-loving attitude and passion for photography and our clients.

Some of the wonderful brands Nashville Smile Bar has had the pleasure to work with include:M Street Entertainment Group, Bon Vivant, YouTube, Make A Wish, Nashville Lifestyles, Healthstream, TN Voices for Children, YWCA, Nashville Scene, Bach Weekend, and of course, Skye at the Sheraton Grand Nashville Downtown.
