@eliseemma:  We’re thinking of doing something similar.  One thing I found was something that was actually used at work;  They had a backdrop with a brand on it which made it look like a red carpet event.  We were thinking of something similar with our name s on it.  Apparently it only cost $75 to make & it was really nice!  You will need to find a way to hang it though.

We’re doing a photo booth, what we are doing is getting a 12×12 tent, and putting up 2 differant backdrops on 2 of the walls, one that’s just for fun, and one thats elegant, for group wedding photos. We are using wall murals since they are 13 feet wide and 9 feel high – we will most likely get some plywood, and attatch it to that, and then ancher it on the poles of the tents. ANYWAY –

These murals cost around $70 each, which is pretty good! Next we’ll get a small table, with a couple of instant polaroid cameras – and a WHOLE bunch of film on the table. There will be a basket for them to deposit some of the pictures they take, or they can take them home. We’ll most likely put some of those $4 cheap disposable cameras on there too, to get developed at a later time. We’ll do some props as well, most likely steer away from the mustache/lip ones that are so overly popular! We’ll probably do funky top hats, boas, glow items & other items. All together with buying the film, backdrops, plywood, tent & cameras, we’ll probably spend around $500 – but it’s well worth the great memories we’ll have.

We are actually making a picture wall… This is the picture that inspired me and our beginning project. We are using sheetrock but cut a tarp the same size so we could organize our frames!

If you are a little worried about your Nikon, have you considered the Fujifilm Insant camera (aka the “new” Polaroid)? You can leave a sign for guests to take 2 (they have one, they leave one), hang a cute fabric sheet on the wal, use your props you have a voila!!

Hi!  I purchased a Photoboop (http://photoboop.com) and used my camera and tripod to make a photobooth for my wedding.  The Photoboop was great, because I was able to do time lapse of the ceremony and then had it set up as a photo booth for the reception.  I used a brick wall as the backdrop but could have hung a curtain.  Also, I used an Eye-Fi card that sent pictures directly to Facebook.  The pictures turned out great.
