That sounds like a blast 🙂 I’m sure your guests will love it, and be able to tell all of the work you put into it. 

One note, on my mac in order to pull up the scenes you have to pull up the picture, step out, and then step back into the camera field. If yours is like this, I would just make a BIG note explaining that to guests

Ah! I love the chalkboard talk bubbles! I’ve seen some photobooth shoots with them and I always love how they turn out.

I really, really love this idea. It’s a cool twist on the photobooth. I likes! I would totally enjoy this if I were going to your wedding.

The OSX Photobooth app works well, but if you might also want to take a look at David Cline’s software:

DIY: Wedding Photo Booth

It’s donation-ware – there’s no set amount, just pick a donation price.  And it’s more automated, plus it will print at the reception.

It would not handle green-screen type effects.  But it might still be worth it.  Good luck!

Love the idea.  Just a head’s up if you haven’t bought the green fabric yet and have a Walmart near by go check out the clearance section and if not there the bedding section.  I had been wanting a green screen for photography for awhile but didn’t want to spend the dough.  This fall Walmart had a bright lime green jersey sheet sets in there back to college section.  Now that school’s in session they have then on clearance, I snagged a queen size set for $9.  I’ve used it several times now and it was easy to swap the backgrounds.

I had a photobooth back drop and it’s really one of my favourite parts of our wedding.  Totally worth it.
