I haven’t, but we are going to have one too during the cocktail hour. We (and by we I mean my fiancé Wink ) will be building something like this in out colors:

do you have a laptop with a webcam? check out http://www.sparkbooth.com

That is the software Fiance and I are using on our photobooth

Fiance actually built a photobooth out of curtainsand pvc pipe – we have tested out the program and it works great – they just have press the space bar and it takes 4 pics back to back and prints instantly. oh! and you can put like G and A and your wedding date on the pictures it prints..all together i think it cost us around 150-175 for software, pvc pipe, curtains printing paper and props.

Good Luck

WOW!! $2,000 for a photo booth? We were lucky to get one for $645 for 6 hours Unlimited photos.

I applaud all of you DIY people. I had all the time in the world but I have no artistic talent. I love the one you posted as you inspiration.

Does your photographer work with a second shooter/assistant? If so, maybe you can ask the second photographer to man the photo booth. That’s what we did… the tradeoff is that guests didn’t get instant photos, but they were professionally shot and I plan to send them copies with the thank you cards. Here are a few pics:

We did a very simple DIY photobooth that was a big hit with our guests.  Details are at this link.

I’m having one, but it’s a package deal with my photographer – I get it for the night for $300! So it isn’t DIY but if it was thousands i would have attempted a DIY one 🙂
