Traditionally, professional photographers have been primarily responsible for documenting the events of a party, but with the cultural shift resulting from social media, cameras on our phones, and the desire for more authentic, less-posed photos, the photo booth is making a tremendous comeback!
When planning your next event, you’ll not only want to give your guests a way to remember the night, but you’ll also want them to have a great time making those memories. Photo booths check both things off your list. You can select from a variety of themes for your props, making it personalized to your event. A photo booth is a great addition to many different kinds of events including weddings and engagement parties, work parties, birthday parties (for kids AND adults), holiday parties, Sweet Sixteen/Quinceaneras, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, graduations, charity events, proms/school dances, bachelorette parties, and baby showers. It adds an interactive element to your event that all your guests can participate in!
A photo booth adds a fun flavor, and it gives everyone a chance to have fun and let loose. Think of shy wallflowers at a school dance or the wedding guests who don’t want to dance; this gives them a great chance to participate in the fun and socialize within their comfort zones! They can be silly while commemorating your event. Photo booths can also give kids an activity that will keep them busy and entertained while their parents have fun. Everyone will have something to do, and your guests may even want to stay longer.
As part of the entertainment, it’s a cost-effective, instant gratification activity that allows your guests to walk away with a unique party favor. They won’t have to wait for a month for photos; they receive them right away! They can take as many photos as they want to get it just right! You can put up a sign nearby with your event’s hashtag, so guests can post pictures of their unique photos, boosting your event’s social media presence. Another fun idea is to have a photo album where guests put a copy of their unique photo and leave a little note for you, the host. They can go home with their copy, and you won’t miss out on any of the fun. Be sure to have someone (your DJ if applicable) announce a reminder for your guests to go have some fun creating memories in your photo booth!
