We understand how hectic life can get and how expensive it can be to hire a photographer for holiday photos. That's why we've created BYOC (Bring Your Own Camera) photo sets for your family to take pictures! Our scenes/sets are created for each event and allow your family to capture beautiful memories at an affordable price.  All you have to do is bring your loved ones and a camera! We will have people here to take your photo, help to position your group, and make silly faces to capture the attention of babies and pets. The best part is that you can take loads of photos and all of your pictures will go home with you on your own camera!  We typically hold events at Easter, Fall, and Christmas, but occasionally add a few in throughout the year. In order to attend, we do require that you sign up for a time slot. Our time slots run every 15 minutes and allow you to take as many photos as you'd like during your 15 minute slot.  Most of our events range from $15 to $30 per 15 minute slot. You can sign up for events using the links below or through the links on our Facebook page.  We understand that you may not like the quality picture that your camera can take. We encourage you to bring along your favorite family photographer or we can take your picture with our camera for an extra fee. The pictures that we take will be emailed to you within a few days of the event, but they will not be edited or touched up.  After the event is over, please share your photos with us on Something Borrowed Events Facebook page and leave a review! For updates on each event, please keep an eye out on our calendar and Facebook page, because that is where we will post any changes or list any last-minute notifications. Facebook is our  primary source of communication when it comes to these events, so please make sure to follow us and our events there!

    We will be holding our spring BYOC event on April 9th and 10th! We are so excited to see you there!

All you need to know before coming to an event!

  • Most of our events take place at our home and are outside. Make sure to double check our Facebook page or calendar of events for any last minute updates on weather and possible change in location due to inclement weather.

  • If an event is located at our home (Valley Drive location), there will be no public bathrooms available.

  • Make sure to arrive 5-10 minutes before your slot to sign in and get yourself and your kiddos ready. Because we run on such a tight schedule, if you arrive late, you will cut into your time with the scene or posibbly miss it completly. (Late arrivals are still required to pay ) 

  • We are more than happy to take your photos with your phone or camera. If you need help, or need someone to take your photos, please just let us know!

  • We can also take your photos with our camera! This will cost an additional fee. We do not edit or touch up any of the photos. We will send you every photo we take via DropBox within a few days of the event. Please let the ladies at the sign-in know if you are interested!

  • Pets are always welcome (unless stated in the event description) as long as they are kept on a leash and you clean up after them!

  • We accept cash and credit cards on the day of the event. 

  • If you have any questions before the event, please feel free to contact us at 

  • We can't wait to see you there!

Before signing up for an event please read the instructions below! 

  1. For all of our events, we use a site called SignUpGenius. In order to reserve a 15 minute slot, you must sign up using the links to the site found on the event page above or in the Facebook event created for each BYOC event.  

  2. Make sure to read the description of each individual event, as many people's questions about particular events are listed there. 

  3. In order to sign up for a 15 minute slot, we do require that you pay a $5 non-refundable deposit in order to hold your spot. The $5 will be credited to your total when you arrive that day.

  4.  After signing up for the scene and time that you would like, please make sure you receive a confirmation email. If you do not receive a confirmation email, please email us directly at

  5. The site does not allow you to cancel your slot or switch times once you have signed up. If you need to do either, please send us an email and we can help you out!

  6. Any slots that are still open will have a GREEN button that reads, "Sign Up". If you DO NOT see this button, that slot has been filled and taken. If the slot has been filled, there will be no button next to the date/time.

  7. If you cannot make it for your slot for any reason, or you would like to cancel, please let us know so we can fill your slot with someone else that would like to come! Most events do fill up and we have a waiting list for open slots.

Events with more than one scene...

  1. When signing up for a BYOC event with more than one scene, make sure that you are signing up for the correct scene, at the time you would like, and for the correct date (some events have multiple dates).

  2. All scenes will have different sign ups, so if you would like to take photos with more than one scene, please sign up for each separately!

  3. If you are using an Android to sign up on the site, please make sure to switch your phone to the desktop version of the internet. This will make the site much more user friendly!
