So i love photo booths from being little and going to the mall i loved them… So i will be having one only question is what kind.
I find the diy ones where its a nice papered wall with cool frames to poke your head in and then old family photos great i love this look. Like love it. I wanna do that …
Still the benfit to the one you hire to come is they print off the photos right there its a fun favor keep sake for people i have every photo booth photo ever since i was like 3 still so i know people would love and keep it. Also i can still make silly props for it too so make it a lil more fun.
Its just so hard to pick b/c i love the look for the diy for our wedding photos with the groom and my self poking out it to kisss each other love that… but i think the rented one where they print photos out are a nice keep sake are a lil better for the guests
what are your thoughts/ what would you go with/ also diy I might be able to sell it after so thats a benifit
or maybe i make both? Would both at a wedding be over kill?
I could make both but only use the one I make with frames for my groom and I to pose for some cute photos when we do our photo shoot after? or is it silly to jsut make it for us? I mean the guests would enjoy it too so it could be good to have both booths or a little over the top

I think if you are going to have a photo both guests should be able to get a photo. For me, that’s a big part of the fun.
I do think 2 are overkill. I’d stick with just one professional.
By the way, I didn’t vote because all your options were either DIY or have 2 booths. I don’t recommend either.

if i went to a wedding with a photobooth i would expect to get a photo, like you said yourself, you loved getting the photo and keeping it – they would to, most people willl get in and want photos for themselfs,”oh look two print out, i guess thats for the bride/groom, lest sign the book”they would feel its more for then not the bride/groom its more to keep them entertained during the evening ….ide go the standard photobooth, not the DIY
– one company im taking with gives you a fash drive of all the photos at the end of the event, you should ask if the one your looking at does, if they do maybe just do the background change/whatnot yourself to your own photos and let your guests have fun with the regular photobooth…

i’m biased b/c this is what i’m doing but i suggest doing the DIY, and then you print out the best pictures later and include them in the invites 🙂 that way, it’s even more of a surprise when they receive it because they probably forgot! 🙂

Do you have a printer? I’m using the Sparkbooth software, which takes pics using your computer’s webcam and then connects to your printer and prints photos for your guests. I’m running it off my laptop at the wedding. Only cost $59 for the software. Cheaper than a pro photobooth, guests get pics right when they take them, and I still get to make a DIY backdrop which I’m super-excited about, haha.

My photographer is doing our “photobooth” (she uses a back drop and uplighting with props and takes the photos herself….)
We will have a list that people can put their emails on so we can email them pictures they are in…..then they can print them off if they want….
