ALSWM:  I’ve never been to a wedding with a video booth per se but I have been to weddings where a friend or videographer have come around to guests during the night trying to get us to film messages to the couple etc. I *hate* it when that happens and I’m put on the spot of trying to think of what to say etc. and being filmed in general which I really dislike. Generally I’m not the only one who feels this way and most people just get awkward and don’t know what to say. I however love a good photobooth.

I just came across a photographer’s blog today that had a videobooth and it was amazing!! Not sure about the one you are thinking of, but its nothing like those old school videos the PP mentions above. It’s more like a photo booth, but they happen to be filming instead of taking photos. You end up getting awesome footage of your guests goofing around with props etc set to a fun song. It. was. awesome. I am now obsesed with the photographer and the idea. I’d love to see if anyone has done it or been to a wedding where its been done.

ALSWM:  Yeah I understand what you meant but I’m just not sure how many would willingly go in and use it. PP’s suggestion of a old school film of people just goofing off to music would be fine but I think a lot of people would just avoid a video booth where they had to go record a message. I mean even in a normal photobooth where we asked if every guest would mind having at least one pic in there (we didn’t have a forma guest book) I would say around 10% didn’t go in at all and my mum had to corral all her siblings in to use it.

ALSWM:  This photographer is in New Hampshire. I will PM you the info and the link to the videoboth video i watched. Not sure if it will help since you are looking in Louisiana, but you never know.

So there’s this really cool company that does DIY wedding videos and like you can upload them from your phone or from their rented cameras onto an app and they can professionally edit it for you! they’re called weddingmix and  my sister used it at her wedding and I saw this cool pin on pinterest that is like a DIY video booth using their cameras that I put the link below!

But it’s really cool and if you have family from out of town they can record a video message for you on their phone and upload it onto your account on the app, and then Weddingmix takes all of that footage and puts it all together for you! It’s also super cheap, my sister only paid $99 for it!

Like other PPs, I didn’t have a video booth, but our videographer captured some very candid interviews! I liked how he did it… he didn’t force people to say anything/put anyone on the spot, but when he had enough footage for our video he just set up outside. We ended up with a hysterical, yet heartfelt (and sometimes raunchy!) 8 minutes of interview footage. 

Funny thing is I wasn’t even interested in having a videographer… my hubby convinced me. I am so, so, SO happy he did! I don’t think you’ll regret it!

Krises:  would you mind sharing the info with me as well? i am currently trying to decide if it would be best to DIY video confessional booth or to hire another professional videographer to do it! Would love to see an example! Thank you!
