Hey I noticed you are 8-8-8 wedding, I’m 8-9-8 and also in OC!  Anyhow, I went to a wedding recently where they had a partybooth and it was fun.  My fiance really wanted one too after that wedding but it wasn’t in our budget.  Here’s an idea b/c the party booth is basically a p&s (point & shoot) camera. 

Get an empty frame and set up your camera (p&s or dslr) on a tripod.  I guess your can use either a self timer or remote depending on what your camera’s options are.  I thought this idea was cute.  Here’s an example from flickr.   Hope that helps and now we only have 3 months and 2 weeks left!

I’m using a company in the OC that is about 1200 for 6 hours unlimited photos.  A friend of mine had a sample of the pics and the quality was good. http://www.cheesyphotobooths.com/

Some photographers will set up a photobooth similar to what reilabird said, but manned by an actual photographer and proper flash lighting and whatnot. I’ve actually seen pics where the photo was taken, and immediately uploaded to a computer and projected on the wall of the reception hall. I thought that was really cute. Ask your photographer if it’s something that he could do?

We’re doing basically what reilabird said, but I do photography on the side so I have a professional camera.

I am still sold on Red Carpet Photo Booth.  I saw them at a friends wedding of mine.  You even get the owners themselves!  They were soooo much fun.  They helped out with everyone, and had a really cool scrapbook.They have affordable packages and their pictures look really cool and different.  Remember this is that "One Day".  You get what you pay for…

Set one up yourself.  You can have a tripod w/ a camera mounted.  If you have friends who know photography have them setup lighting.  If not, just have a camera with a wired or wireless remote so that you can have guests look into camera and take pictures with the remote.

For example I have this remote for my camera: http://www.amazon.com/Canon-Wireless-Remote-Control-Digital/dp/B00004WCIC

But I would feel safer to have a wired remote so it doesn’t dissappear 🙂

I am actually doing something similar to the camera/tripod thing, but inspired by a photographer I came across while researching. I loved his idea and actually sort of liked it better than a photo booth! I thought the vintage couch was super cute. Here is a link:

We ended up buying a camera, but it was a lot cheaper than renting a photo booth, plus we have a really nice DSLR now.
