Renting a Photo Booth for a Wedding

 

Looking for something special to make your wedding even more memorable? One of the hottest wedding trends is renting a classic photo booth for the reception. Today’s photo booths come with state-of-the-art of technology; delivering crisp, fun photos to keep for a life time. There are a few things to consider when renting a photo booth for a wedding: here’s a primer.

 

Photo Booths Produce Great Keepsakes

 

Who doesn’t like piling into a photo booth with friends, making silly faces as the flash pops, then seeing the strip of snaps magically emerge? Or cuddling with that special someone for a romantic pic?  Photo booths are a great way for guests to have fun and interact with friends both old and new. While some photo booths are on the small side, built for two or three people, some of the newer models can hold up to ten partiers!  Many rental companies offer a trunk full of wild party props; such as wigs or funny glasses to spark the imagination and get the photo booth party going.

 

Getting Practical

 

When renting a photo booth there are a few things to consider. Where will the photo booth be placed? This is something that should be discussed with the venue. To get the most out of the photo booth it should be located near the central reception area, both accessible and visible. It should be set up long before the guests arrive and the price should include a professional and personable attendant. As most photo booths are rented by the hour (often a minimum of two hours), decide if you want the booth for the minimum amount of time or into the wee hours of the night.

 

Once you have some ideas of how the photo booth fits into your wedding plans, it’s time to look for a reputable rental company. A few of the more established DJ and emcee companies offer photo booths as part of a whole-picture wedding package or simply on their own. Some questions you may like to ask before renting:

  • Does the fee include setting it up and taking it away?
  • How many people does it fit?
  • What is the background? (A solid, neutral background is best.)
  • How many photographs are included? (Many offer unlimited sessions.)
  • What is the quality of the photos? (Can you see an example?)

 

Other Tips

 

One interesting prop you may want to bring along for more photo booth fun, is a small black board with chalk. This way guests can write a note to the bride and groom and hold it up as part of their photo. If you have a DJ or emcee, make sure they remind guests to enjoy the photo booth.
