You’ve probably been to a wedding and taken a photo in a photo booth. Wedding guests can have fun with fun props and backdrops, which creates long-lasting memories. Here are some tips for those who plan to rent a photo booth to use at their wedding. Weddings by Ardenian is a complete photo booth rentals and event planning and styling company. We specialize in custom and upscale floral designs and decor as well as unique rentals.
LOOKOUT FOR A PROFESSIONAL STUDIO TABLE
While some photo booths use only a webcam, professional-quality images can be achieved with a DSLR camera and a studio flash. They are often found in outdoor photo booths, rather than in more boxy setups. Ask your booth operator about the equipment they provide.
MATCH THE BOOT TO YOUR WEDDING THEME.
A photo booth allows guests to relax, but you want it to fit in with the overall theme of your wedding. It won’t look right if a comedy booth is placed in the middle of a black tie reception. For a cohesive addition to your big day, make sure that the style of the booth and the attendant props match the theme.
CHOOSE THE IDEAL LOCATION
The same goes for where your photo booth will be placed. The booth should be placed in an area that guests won’t notice, but doesn’t take over the dance floor. Many venues are familiar with accommodation photo booths and can point you in the right direction.
PROPS AND COSTUMES ARE A MUST-HAVE TO ADD TO YOUR BOOT.
Props and costumes are crucial to the success of your photo booth, whether you hire a professional or make it yourself. Props and costumes can make the difference between your guests coming back for one photo or not. To add drama and encourage guests to take photos, you can provide masks, feather boas or oversized sunglasses to make them laugh.
Be sure to examine the final product.
You should also consider how you will get the images to your guests. The booth operator should be able provide photos to your guests on-the-spot if the package includes all the necessary equipment. You should first check these to ensure that they are in the correct font and background so guests can personalise. Are the images professional looking or are they just cheap prints? The images should be printed on thick paper so that guests can save them as souvenirs. You can also print duplicates of the images to create a scrapbook with your guests’ photos.
