What Happened Here?

This couple went to get their portrait taken at a photography studio and look what happened. They fell into a fit of giggles and the photographer kept shooting! Or could it possibly be a photo booth sequence? The first automatic photo booth was exhibited at the World’s Fair in Paris in 1889. Either way, this surviving sequence is priceless. What could have caused the descent from formal portrait into candid shots?
