Having a photo booth or not at your wedding is a tough decision to make as it is a total splurge. The fact is it’s simply not a need but a want. After all, you have hired a wedding photographer, Right?! So they will capture ALL the photos. If you’re thinking like that, your not wrong, but you may miss out on some memorable moments. We are wedding photographers ourselves, and with almost a decade of weddings under our belt, we’ve seen the benefits of having a photo booth at your wedding.
ENTERTAINMENT. – A MODERN PHOTO BOOTH!
Fun for all, but it isn’t your Mama’s photo booth! Modern Booths today truly provide entertainment for guests. For example, our booth offers much more than sweet photos. You can make short videos, GIFs, Boomerangs, and you can even apply those soft black and white beauty glam filters like those oh so famous Kardashian ladies. Also, let’s get real; not every guest loves to dance, and sometimes you need a break from the dance floor. By having a photo booth with so many interactive features, it truly gives your wedding guests another option and ultimately enhancing your guest experience.
INSTANT FAVORS FOR THEM AND YOU!
Those little strips of paper with those cute poses always go home and put up on the fridge! While other favors may not make it even out of the car or go straight into the trash. So many times have we seen baskets of favors untouched by guests because they don’t want the candy, it’s overdone!
But giving them a chance to snap some adorable photos with their spouses, kids or friends and family they have not seen in months or years, now that’s priceless. Remember how we said this isn’t your Mama’s photo booth? Here’s another reason why – Live gallery! That’s right, our Black Tie booth, and many other modern photo booths upload all of those photos and boomerangs immediately to a gallery!
Guests can download and instantly share on Instagram, Facebook, or TikTok without missing a beat. Plus, you get access to the live gallery the same night too, which brings me to my next point!
PHOTOS PHOTOS PHOTOS, OF GUEST!
Unfourtanetly what we see too often are brides saying they wish their photographer got more photos of their guest. And your right! You have invited them because they mean something to you. You’ve paid per head to have them attend your wedding. Of course, you want a picture of them enjoying the evening.
Let’s face it, as talented as your photographer is, they can’t be in two places at once. If you are having a larger wedding, and have a second photographer, there is no guarantee that you’ll get ample photos of your guest. Plus, some guests freeze when they notice the photographer. Like a deer caught in the headlights! Oh and it’s so awkward when the photographer asks to take a group picture, guest cringe, or awkward smile! Even though they expect there to be a photographer at your reception, they still are awkward! All they want to do is enjoy the evening and not feel like they have to be camera-ready.
That is until you put a booth up, and then all bets are off. Time and Time again, we see lines of guests waiting to use our photo booth because it’s so much fun! All ages enjoy photo booths; in fact, it’s usually grandma and her crew that take the most photos by the end of the night.
