Photo booth ideas: Create your own custom backdrop!

We offer several backdrops for you to choose from free of charge, but if you want to mix it up and personalize your photo booth experience even more, you may choose to have a custom back drop created.
The photos you see are from a wedding where the backdrop was created by the floral designer "Bella Blooms Floral". The couple had a specific idea of what they wanted the photos to look like and as you can see it turned out wonderful!



This can also be done with a great natural backdrop of a wall or a unique space. In this photo you can see that the wall of the venue "Latrobe's on Royal" provided an amazing natural backdrop for these photos. This is a one of a kind shot!



This isn't always the case however. One thing to keep in mind is that if the wall is too far away or if there is darkness behind the subject standing in the photo booth's field of view, the background will appear as darkness. Not every background is sufficient to create a beautiful backdrop for photos.

Ultimately it's the people in the photos, not the backdrop that make the photo memorable.

Ideas for great photo booth props

Ideas for great photo booth props




Digital Photo booths have become so popular that many people have some peripheral experience with them even if they haven't personally used one.

No doubt you've seen the typical arrangement of photo booth stick props: Mustaches, glasses, hats, all on a stick. These can be great fun but they can also be kinda...bleh.

If you're providing your own props for a photo booth you can really make things a lot more fun if you look into finding creative, fun props. A few great places to find interesting and inexpensive props would be thrift stores and garage sales. Here you can find items that may be useless to someone else but would be really fun and quirky to include in your photo booth. You could go home with bags full of items for less than $30.

One thing to keep in mind if you include any "mask" props however, is that you won't be able to see the face of the person wearing the mask in any of the photos! This can be fun and cute at first, however after scrolling through many of your photos you'll just keep seeing the same mask over and over again, when really you'd probably rather be able to see the person's facial expressions. Especially if they're wearing a silly hat, glasses, or a wig!

If you are a fan of the more traditional stick props. There are many places to choose from online. You can start here at amazon.
