2009 was our first year in the Photo Booth business and what an amazing journey we have been on since that time. In 2009 we had around 10 photo booths for the entire year. To put that in perspective, in 2013 we had well over 100 booth rentals. I share those numbers to illustrate simply how popular the photo booth has become in the last 5 years. As a Nashville DJ company that focuses on entertainment in general…the photo booth has been the most exciting and most explosive growth in our business. I wanted to share our experiences and give you The Top 5 Reasons You Need A Photo Booth At Your Next Event
1. Party Favors Are Boring, Photo Booth Strips Rock
Remember the old days of attending an event and always having the party favor as a small “Thank You”? Did you ever keep one or do you still have one? My money on that answer is “NO!” Nearly all of our clients consider the photo booth as a piece of the overall entertainment experience and as a party favor. When you break down the overall cost of the booth and the reality that all of our clients walk away with a digital copy, a hard copy of the photos in their hands and all of the fun while in the booth….it is difficult to beat that bang for the buck. Some of our clients like to simply have the pictures directly out of the printer and others like to put them in acrylic frames. In the past we have seen cork boards and we would pin the pictures on the board as soon as they were finished. We have done the same with clothes pin and twine as well for that rustic, DIY look. Get creative on the presentation (we can help with that) and make the booth an integral part of your event.
2. Some People DO NOT Dance
Being a Nashville based DJ company we see our fair share of incredible events. On our best day, at our best event, when everything is hitting on all cylinders it is simply not feasible to believe that everyone will dance. We have the utmost confidence through strategic planning and our professional experience that we CAN and WILL get the majority of your crowd up and on their feet. What do you do for those people who just simply do not like to dance? How do you keep some of the valued relationships at your event for as long as possible? By offering a photo booth you now have an additional entertainment experience for your ”non dancers” to participate and enjoy. They may not have the swagger for the dance floor, but everyone can get involved with taking pictures. When considering a booth or not a booth, consider the makeup of your guest list and make the call. The booth makes it easy for young, older, dancer, non dancer, or simply anyone to hop in the booth and create some memories.
3. Customize Your Event With Our Professional Graphics Team
Nearly every single event we have seen in the last couple of years has found a way to incorporate some type of custom personalization into the event. By hiring one of our Nashville photo booths you can leverage our professional graphics team that can help customize your photo strip so that it can match invitations, decor of the event or maybe even a favorite sports team. From our experience, we estimate roughly 95% of all guests come through the booth and that offers corporate clients a great chance at branding, wedding clients an incredible way to connect or say thank you. Most importantly, it is a very easy way to incorporate your style into a part of the special event. This is most certainly one of our competitive advantages over our competition here in Nashville. Make sure if you decide to go with another company that it is simply more than a copy and paste of a logo or font for your graphic overlays. The Snyder Entertainment difference is always in the details!
4. Let Your Event Go Viral With Social Media Options
Love it or Hate it…social media is here to stay. Facebook itself has more members than many smaller countries have in actual population. Anyway you slice it, it is a powerful medium and the event world loves looking at photos. We can incorporate social media uploads to just about any of our packages with our Nashville photo booths. One of our most popular additions this year has been the Instagram Print Station. All of your guest can now do more than just see their pictures online, they can now PRINT them. After each event, we will post our pictures and within hours we will see thousands of people have viewed the pictures or shared the links. For your corporate event or private wedding this is great news. You will always have people who can not attend and if you cannot be there, let them experience it online! The power of the print combined with the internet is an amazing experience.
5. Satisfies Immediate Gratification And Brings Back Memories Down The Road
It is hard to explain the magic or the excitement of the photo booth, but it is always evident. When you are connecting with friends through some goofy pictures everyone wants to see their photos as soon as possible. When hiring Snyder Entertainment and our Nashville photo booths, your prints will be ready in under 15 seconds. That immediate gratification need is met and laughs are shared. Ultimately, that is the essence of any event…the moments that were shared between people. As time goes by and your event is now marked by milestones of 5 years, 10 years or 15 years ago; you may not remember all of the conversations, but you will certainly remember moments. Why not relive some of the best moments? Relive those moments where you are smiling and laughing so hard it had to hurt! Our team will provide a scrapbook upon request and that will become your archive for the event. We have hundreds of emails from clients that they love looking at the scrapbook years after their event. We have one couple who keeps the scrapbook on the coffee table throughout the year and their guests always comment on the book. You will be hard pressed to find that kind of return on any investment.
Our team still has openings and would love to meet with you directly to tell you how we can incorporate the booth into your next event. Call or email today!
