There are a few tutorials on the blog [here] about building photobooths with lengths of PVC pipe & PVC elbows (you’ll need epoxy to secure the pieces).

There are also a few floating around the site about making a ply-board wall with frame cut-outs.

You can also drape fabric as a backdrop for a very simple photobooth.

Another idea is if you’re having an arbour, arch or [free standing]cuppah to have that play double duty as your photobooth backdrop.

The standard ‘theme’ for photobooths seems to be props & moustaches. Halloween accessories, new years hats, chalk board signs/bubbles (or white board) are also popular.


try the site search featur in the top right corner 🙂

I bought myself a Fuji Instax 210.  It’s basically a polaroid camera that’s awesome.  I am going to set up an area in one of the rooms downstairs where people can hang out to get away from music, to go outside and smoke, etc.  The pictures will be used in our guestbook and if people want to take more pictures to bring home with them.

I bought dry eraser boards for guests to use if they’d like to write anything on it.  I will be buying props for them to wear later on.  

You can pretty much do it as you’d like.  There’s no set standard for it except a working camera, back drop, and props.  🙂

I’m thinking of getting a cheap privacy screen and hanging stuff off it, maybe pictures of us, to use as a backdrop.

I saw this on a blog (Style Me Pretty maybe) and started thinking it would be a great way to remember the day =] (with pictures of guests being hilarious that is)

appeals to me more than just signatures.

Our guests LOVED our photo booth (actually, “photo hut”)! It was totally DIY, but we did have the tiki hut to work with. I’ve seen some great setups with just a simple fabric backdrop and props, though – doesn’t have to be too complicated.

Here are some pics that show the setup, and some of my favorite shots:

I’m going to try to put one of those together. I will report back in August. If I can do it, it will be awesome. If I give up, it’ll be one less thing to do. I call that a win-win.
