Photobooths are an AWESOME way to get great photographs of your friends, family, and other guests at your wedding. I offer them with my wedding packages, and thought I’d share a little more information about them. There are a few unique benefits of the way I do photobooths:
1) They’re entirely self-operated.
My photobooths are operated by the press of a foot pedal. No photographer is needed to operate them, which saves you money (no additional photographer to pay) and makes for better photos in my opinion. People get a little goofier when they don’t feel like a photographer is watching them.
It also means there’s no hourly limit as long as I’m at the wedding. You can set it up as early as you want, and we don’t need to take it down until the end of the night.
2) Lots of people can fit into them.
My booths aren’t a “booth” in the traditional sense of the word – they’re more of an open area for guests to take photos in. That means that you can fit a LOT of people into them, as you can see in the photos below. Much more than the traditional photobooth limit of 2-3 people.
3) The photos are taken with a studio flash and digital SLR.
That means that they’re super high-quality. You and your guests could blow these up into huge prints and they’d look amazing.
4) You get the high-resolution photos on a DVD.
In other words, you can make a guestbook however you see fit. Big prints, small prints, loose prints, a book…all options are on the table.
5) Unique backdrops.
I can provide a white backdrop if you prefer, but your options aren’t limited to that. Many couples make their own unique backdrops, or use a wall/hedge/etc. at their venue as a backdrop. One couple used the groom’s orange VW bug as the backdrop.
If you think you’re interested in having one at your wedding, let me know! They’re $500, and include all of the high-resolution, processed photos on a DVD. I also set up an online gallery so that your guests can view/download/print photos of themselves.
