Is a Wedding Photo Booth Really Worth the Splurge?
Photo booths seem to be ubiquitous with modern weddings, but they’re certainly not a requirement. Whether you’re considering a vintage booth, an open-air setup by your photographer, or a DIY backdrop that guests can pose in front of, you may find yourself considering whether this is an expense that’s really worth the splurge. Here are some of the pros and cons to help you make the decision that’s best for your wedding and your budget.
Pro: You’ll get an additional set of wedding photos.
Your guests love to pose at the photo booth, but these snaps are tons of fun for the couple to look through after the wedding, too. Think of it as a way to see what friends were up to when you weren’t around. Your professional photos will be great for framing and hanging in your home but flipping through an album filled with photo booth snaps is guaranteed to put a smile on your face for years to come.
Con: There are more costs to consider than just the actual rental.
There are often additional expenses beyond just the product and service. You’ll need to provide a meal for the vendor running the booth and you may need to cover the cost of transportation and mileage, web hosting fees for photos that are available for digital download, and any extra printing or album costs. If your booth doesn’t come with props or lighting, you’ll likely need to save some money for these expenses, too.
Pro: The photos can double as favors.
If you opt to book a photo booth that prints photo strips, your guests have will have a wedding favor they’ll actually want to keep. It’s one less thing to cross off your wedding to-do list.
Con: They can take away from the party atmosphere.
The placement of your photo booth, and when you choose to open it to guests, can mean that its presence splits up the party more than you intended. It’s usually best to have the photo booth open after dinner and set near the dance floor area. But it’s important to remember that, depending on what your guests are like, this interactive activity can be a distraction from the rest of the reception. Imagine what the dance floor would be like if all your college friends were off trying to cram into one photo?
What Can I Do with the Digital Booth?
Our digital booth is a beautiful, all-in-one piece of equipment with a base that is sturdy enough for any location – including a sandy beach or a grassy outdoor area. It has an illuminating ring light surrounding the circular mirror to help you look your best in each photo. The center of the mirror has a touch screen that lets you preview your content in real time. Of course, the mirror also lets you check out your reflection to fix any flyaway hair or make sure you don’t have anything on your face!
The digital booth may be small in size, but it is loaded with features that are instantly available for sharing on social media. Let’s dive into the features, and how they are typically used:
Boomerang is a mobile app that is typically used in conjunction with Instagram. To create a boomerang, the user presses the button to record. The result is a short video that continually loops over and over, much like a boomerang that is thrown and immediately returns. Often users will record boomerangs of clinking beverages together, twirling their dresses, quick movements, or other moments that look great when played over and over. Our digital booth has this capability, and it creates a dynamic photo memory in comparison to a traditional, static photo. Some examples of Boomerangs from our digital photobooth are featured on our website under the “Digital Booth” link.
GIFs are similar to boomerangs in that they are a short sequence of photos that loop, but the format that they are captured in is different. In other words, GIFS are not a video, but rather they are a sequence of photos stitched together. GIFS do have a more limited color palette to represent the image, and can look less detailed if translating a video from full quality to GIF format. However, GIFs are still extremely popular and culturally iconic despite those limitations. GIFs are typically used online to share funny moments or hilarious facial expressions from events or movies.
Wedding Activities That Are Way More Fun Than a Photo Booth
LifePrint will make your photos come to life! I know, it sounds like something out of the Harry Potter books, but it’s true. Here’s how it works: select your favorite couples photos or videos from your phone, then print them out using your LifePrint printer. Scatter these pictures throughout your wedding venue at different tables or stations, or pin them to a collage. When your guests hover their phones over the pics—surprise!—they will start moving. Why make your guests sit through a boring slideshow?!
2. Air graffiti wall
Allow your guests to get creative, street art style. Instead of paint, the cans emit an infrared light beam which is converted into a virtual image that appears on the digital wall. This is a way cooler and more creative way to edit and share images on social media from your wedding.
3. Go FlipYourself
No, we’re not being inappropriate. Kellee Khalil, founder and CEO of virtual wedding planner app Loverly, says Go FlipYourself is a total departure from the traditional photo booth setup. “You can have guests venture into the open air setup (not the stuffy booth), pretty themselves up with on-hand props (boas, glasses, you name it), and record a 7-second video that then gets processed and cut up into a business card-sized flip book they can take away within two minutes.”
Photo booths as Authentic and Vintage
The very structure of photo booths allow for a target audience that encompasses a broad range of generations, unlike smartphones which are primarily used by a younger demographic. Older people tend to view photo booths with nostalgia while younger people may see it as vintage and revel in the novelty of having printed photo strips to bring home. In both cases, photo booths present a unique chance to be wholly authentic. While some photo booths offer the ability to share photos digitally via email, the same photo booths also offer the option to share photos directly to social media, reducing the chance of users taking the time to alter or edit photos before posting and thus preserving authenticity. Since photos are printed right there for you, they serve as a great tangible reminder of a fun event or get-together. Users receive a completely untouched and real photo of how they looked in a particular moment to look fondly back on. There is something genuine about having an actual photo strip to hold and look at knowing that what has been captured is exactly what the scene really looked like, something that cannot be said for many social media photos that have been retouched or filtered.
