Photo booths are crazy and make for some fun photos and lots of laughs, but i wanted something to capture our night not just what happened in a booth that not all our guests would use! Anyone I told thought i was silly and itd be a waste of time and money, even on here many bees told me it wasnt a good idea, but on the night everyone loved it! We had our main photographer from getting ready until about 6pm and then another professional photographer join us for the night.
She was amazing – here are some favourites

@Pokemon: Gorgeous 🙂 We didn’t do a photobooth either. Our photographer stayed until just about an hour before the end of the reception. A photobooth wouldn’t have captured this picture of my girls!

I don’t think it’s one or the other…we are having both.

I dint think theyre trying to do the same thing at all though. Of course a photobooth wont get candid shots of guests or decor pics
If i had to choose between the two id get reception too but i ust admit my photobooth was massive hit

is a seperate reception photographer a thing? I’ve never heard of that! Does your regular photog just peace out after the ceremony and portraits? Or is it in addition? Our photography contract stipulates that there can’t be another professional photographer at the event shooting as a pro (ie, my aunt is a photog and will likely be taking pictures, but she’s not our hired photog).
Our photographers will be with us until about an hour until the end of the reception. We’re having a photobooth too, though. To me, the photobooth is for fun and entertainment – the photographer is for documentation.

@StL.Ashley: Where I am your photographer is with you from getting ready until the end of cocktail hour. all up about 6 hours. They will take photos of a mock cutting the cake and unless agreed dont stay for reception, which is very un common.
