Top 3 tips to hiring a photobooth:

The popular trend of having a photo booth at weddings isn’t going anywhere just yet. They offer a great way for both the happy couple and the guests to have fun and commemorate the occasion. If you’re thinking of adding a photo booth to your big day, we have some tips to help you choose the right one.

There are many different types of photo booths now available for couples to choose from so here are our three top tips for picking the best one for your nuptial needs:

Get a visual of the photobooth

Many photo booth hire companies don’t post pictures of their booths on their websites.  Before renting one based only on price, make sure you see some photos of the photobooth so that you know exactly what you’re getting.  Photo booths come in all shapes and sizes. A visual not only allows you to see if the booth matches your wedding’s aesthetic, but also lets you see if the booth’s size is ideal for your event space.

Quality photos

Quality photos are also important to getting the most out of your booth hire – make sure the booth is equipped with a good quality camera (avoid webcam photobooths).    Looking back at photos will bring back great memories, make sure the photos are of good quality.

Add a personal touch

Many photo booths will let you personalize your photo strips.  Ask to see the designs that they currently have available and what changes can be made to them.  Your guests will most likely hang on to their photo strips for a long time, so make sure that your prints look the way you want your big day to be remembered.  Find out if your rental package includes props, and if so, whether they can be coordinated with your event. If not, ask your rental company if they would be willing to buy some. Lastly, if your rental only offers a black curtain, ask if you can provide your own background. This way your photo booth will look and feel more a part of your wedding. Every bride loves her wedding colors.
