Dos and Donts of the photo booth

Dos and Donts of the photo booth

So you want to add a little fun to your event? Want to give your guests or clients a takeaway from your special night? Adding a photo booth can be a great way to do that!

Here are a few things to keep in mind when you decide to get a photo booth:

-DO decide whether you want an enclosed booth or an open air booth, you can learn the difference between the two here

-DO Make sure you have space for the booth. A lot of times the venue may not want you to put it in a certain walkway or doorway (which is not a good idea anyways) because it may cause congestion. You can learn more about this topic here

-DO Ask for customization options. Different print layouts that allow you to choose either the traditional 3 photos strip option or one big photo on a 4x6 are good options to have. As well as custom designs/logos on the prints.

-DO Consider the props. Are you getting a photo booth with a bunch of cheap cut out paper on a stick props such as mustaches and glasses like this? That's fine if it fits your needs but if you desire a little more sophistication be sure to confirm that before hand.

-DO ask if your booth comes with an attendant and if anything were to malfunction with the booth, how would you be compensated?

-DON'T expect the photo booth to attract guests if it is hard to find, without signage, and no announcement has been made to inform guests that the booth is available.

-DON'T think that the booth can fit in a very tiny space next to the bar (where a line will naturally form)

-DON'T think that your guests won't have an amazing time as they let loose and find their inner child!


Enjoy your photo booth and take pictures!
