A photo booth has become a classic installment at so many wedding receptions. You rarely attend a wedding without some sort of entertainment piece these days, and a photo booth is an easy, no-prep option for brides and grooms everywhere, making it very popular. But is it the right fit for your reception? We have five reasons we love photo booths for you today, and they may answer your question!
GUEST ENTERTAINMENT FOR ALL AGES
The number one reason many brides and grooms want to book a photo booth is because of the easy entertainment it can provide. Are you planning on having a wide array of ages present at your reception? A photo booth is easy enough for children, your grandparents, and everyone in between to get up and use. It also provides variety in the activity at your reception. Some of your guests may need a break from dancing, and taking pictures is the perfect way for them to stay engaged but not on the dance floor!
Obviously, taking the photos in the moment is super fun! There are props, silly faces…it’s an out-of-the-ordinary experience. When you book with Snyder, you can choose to either book a print booth, which gives your guests a physical strip of your photos, or you can book a social booth. Social booths send photos directly to your phone, allowing your guests to upload them in real time with your wedding hashtag, creating a digital album right on Instagram of everyone’s best moments! Memories will most definitely be made, and you’ll have the photographic evidence that will allow you to take a stroll down memory lane for years to come.
Many brides and grooms like to give a wedding favor to their guests. You may think that the photos from your photo booth can not stand alone as your only favor, but you shouldn’t discount the fact that you paid for this experience for your guests, and it allowed them to take something with them. If you want to give your guests something in addition to the photos, you can set up your favors right next to the photo booth so it’s easy for people to grab their photos and their favor all at once. The less you have to stress about, the better!
CAPTURE THE CANDID
A wedding photographer and/or videographer is an invaluable resource that we do NOT recommend skimping on. You will want those flawless photos for years to come. But, how fun is it to also be able to look through some photos that are a little less staged? We all know that the photo booth will shine brightest late into the reception when things have gotten darker, and everyone is feeling a little more comfortable. You’ll want these moments as much as any other!
EYE-CATCHING AND MODERN
Our photo booths are sleek and minimal in set-up, so you don’t need to worry about the equipment clashing with the decor you’ve already decided on. Our social booths have built-in filters (think Snapchat), so you can go with or without props, depending on how much space you have. You and your guests will appreciate the fun experience that a modern photo-booth can create, without being an eye-sore.
