Every bride has asked the question, “Is photo booth rental a good idea for my wedding?” In most cases, the answer is a resounding YES! Now if you are talking about the old school or DIY photo booths where only two person can sit on the bench or the booth is simply hideous to look at then I can understand your concerns. I would not consider that type of photo booth for my wedding either. Not only will those booth ruin the theme or decor of your wedding, it might stand out like a sore thumb. And let’s not get into the liability aspect of the DIYer’s photo booth. Fortunately, time has changed and modern photo booths are phasing out the old and self-built ones.
Before you book any photo booth rental, make sure you check out the vendor’s website. Take a look at the photo booth design. Asked the vendor a few questions. Is it made out of wood? Is it easily transportable? Some vendors will charge for idling fees (the amount of time the booth is sitting idle at the venue) and some will not. That all depends on the vendor, staffing and how difficult it is to transport the booth.pros of renting a photo booth
Now the following question that brides often ask is, “Why do I need a photo booth if I already have a photographer?”. Well, that’s a great question! The photographer’s job is to capture all the precious moments that happens on your wedding day with the bride and groom being the subject. Occasionally, he/she might snap a few shots of the guests and that’s it. The photo booth’s job is to grab pictures of all the guests that attended your wedding. Not when they are talking or daydreaming but when they are willing, happy and engaging! One thing I’ve noticed during our photo booth rental was how everyone genuinely had so much fun taking their photos. The photos shows the raw emotions of happiness – people laughing, waiting anxiously by the printer for the photo to develop, or gathering in groups to judge their latest adventure into the photo booth. Photo booth rental is a huge hit on all of our rentals.
The greatest thing about the photo booth is the sense of spontaneity. There’s no photographer telling you how to smile, how to stand, or that your smile needs to be more ‘genuine’. From the time your wedding guest pushes the touchscreen monitor until the four photos have been taken, the most crazy, fun, and humourous things could be captured onto film.
