Photobooth Events was founded in 2012 by Sereni Linggi and Shentel Lee. Better known as the founders of headband brand Sereni and Shentel, the girls have run numerous events for their brand and had always wanted to hire a proper photo booth for their guests.

Alarmed that there was no such product for hire in Malaysia, they decided to get one custom built for two events in early 2012. The events were a roaring success and pretty soon word got around about the photo booth. Hence Photobooth Events was established under their company The Playground Borneo.
