Owner Spotlight | Mark and Swapna Kurian

Cameron Bingham

Back in February, we hosted a Success Story Contest where we asked our Photobooth Supply Co booth owners to submit their stories. We wanted to hear about the incredible things that our PBSCO family has been able to accomplish thanks to their photo booth business and share their stories with the world.

One of those incredible stories that stuck out to us was that of Mark and Swapna Kurian.


Mark and Swapna had recently graduated from college and were looking for a fun way to chip away at their student loans. They weren't looking to take on anything too serious, but who doesn't love some extra cash, right?

After doing some research, they discovered the booming photo booth industry. They thought that it could be a great way to have fun, help capture memories of their clients, and get that student loan debt down to zero.

While both working full-time jobs, they started to create their online presence and brand identity. Since they were new to photo booths, they took advantage of the PBSCO Facebook group to speak with other photo booth owners and to ask for help and advice when needed.

Before they knew it, What the Flipbooks and Photobooths had taken off! 

In less than three years, Mark and Swapna were able to completely pay off their student loans meaning they had made over six figures in that time. That's incredible!

They also had the opportunity to interview with Forbes Podcast which, if you're interested, you can check out here!

Mark and Swapna are still trying to figure out what their next moves will be and how they would like to expand while they're still working their full-time jobs.



We want to continue to build our company into something bigger than us!

We here at Photobooth Supply Co are amazed at what Mark and Swapna were able to accomplish with a PBSCO Photobooth. We wish them the best and hope to see their company continue to grow.
