Everyone knows that wedding day can be a time of immense stress, great pleasure, and tons of tears of pleasure! Nevertheless, let’s explore some fantastic photo stall wedding hints! A photo can cultivate memories for decades. 

Possessing the ability to look back in the beginning of a life journey is a major reason that everyone should consider getting a photo booth.  A wedding photographer is great, but those candid moments with family and friends are irreplaceable! 

Look Out For “Cheap” Photo Booths 

Photo booth rentals, like anything else, come with a cost.  It’s important to know that all photo booths are NOT equal in quality, bundle offerings, client support, and experience. 

otherFrequently, you’ll find that photo booths which are on the side are usually newer companies, or use less expensive gear like low-quality cameras, webcam… These companies will frequently come with no photo booth attendant! 

Here are a few things which make a photo booth GREAT: 

DSLR Cameras 

You’re paying for memories whenever you purchase a photo booth.  bear this in mind.  A sharp, clean image is something you can put in an album, on a desk, or hang up in your home.  Many  companies have been straying away from this and choosing for tablets to take pictures.  Though some tables have great cameras, it is going to still be far more choppy compared to a professional grade camera. 

Number of Props 

It’s in your best interest to find a company which offers props.  Taking photos without them doesn’t make the identical experience period. You can buy your own own, but why spend your money on something you’ll use once! Always remember to ask us to provide it for you.

Manned or Unmanned?  

Ask if the Photo Booth come with attendants.  If no, you’re likely going to have a lame experience.  As it’s been discussed in other articles, an attendants takes the stress from you, and allow ’therefore the experts look after the audience, props, photo strips, along with technical aspects.

The Day of your Own Wedding.

Often times when booking a booth, a photo booth business will ask for a Start Time, and End Time. DON’T place the ceremony start time as the photo booth start time. Put down the time the photo booth will in fact be taking photos and participating with your guests. We explain how to do that a little further down in this article. In addition, always confirm with the photo booth what time they’ll arrive to installation, and see if they’re going to charge you for setting up the photo booths premature. Most photo booth businesses will enable you a hour of free set up time before they open for business. 

We can set up early, if your wedding and reception happens at the same venue. We call it as idle hours, and can run your rental cost upwards of $50 dollars an hour.  

With that in mind, it is important to plan the time cautiously. It might even be in your best interest to cover an excess hour or so to ensure that photo camera technicians and attendants can correctly get everything set up without interfering with the wedding ceremony or reception. Here is a fantastic photo booth rental example:

wedding ceremony and Reception Hours: 5pm – 10pm

Ceremony start time: 5: 00 PM

Reception start time: 6: 00 PM

Photo booth start time: 6: 00 PM – 10PM.

Your photo booth must arrive around 1: 30 pm to 3: 30 pm and have your photograph booth up and running well before the ceremony. 

Therefore, that is why it is good to ask us about any additional fees for idle hours. Allocate Time to use the stand. You would not believe just how many brides and grooms spend money on a photo booth, and after that forget to use it! As a photo booth firm, we do it a point to find the groom and bride in for shots at least once, but not everybody will go out of their way to do that! Exactly like you plan every thing else. Ensure you utilize the photo booth! It’ll be a memory which you are able to look back on! Please possess hour wedding coordinator schedule the photo booth in your wedding reception plans and also allow 5 to ten minutes for them to catch some memorable moments and photograph strips to your scrapbook!

Don’t Rely on the hours 

The wedding day will be one of the biggest days of your life, and a photo booth will likely be one of the cheaper vendors that you’ll be using (photographers, wedding cakes, flowers, wedding planners,etc). 

Why Add An Extra Hour? 

We charge approximately $100 for an additional hourand that hour generally makes a major difference! If we use the example above and choose to get a three hour lease that starts one hour before the start time, it would be the difference of guests getting two hours versus 3 hours to use the booth! An hour may get loads of guests in and out, and also gives the groom and bride lots of time to join in on the fun! 

I Don’t Want Guests Employing The Booth Before The Ceremony 

You may specify exactly whenever you wish the booth opened and closed by speaking to the on-site attendant .  Often, the stall will also be closed throughout the ceremony and the first dances, you simply have to remember to make the petition! 

Get Physical Copies 

Verify the photo booth company will in reality be printing out photo strips at the event!   Even when you’re getting an electronic copy (covered below), you wouldn’t believe how big of a difference this will make. 

Guests really like to have these photo strips at hand.  It strikes up laughter, smiles, and a lot of conversation. 

Among the LARGEST benefits however, is that you’ll have pictures to stay on your scrapbook (covered below) that you’ll have forever! 

Get Digital Copies 

Always make it a point to check with your photo booth company that they offer you some kind of digital copies of the pictures you take.

  • Flash Drive 
  •  Online Gallery 
  •  Social Media (i.e. Facebook)

Though you do get a hard copy of the photo strips, it’s great to have a back up plan! 

Other relevant questions which need to taken into account! 

  • Will I get the individual pictures or the photo strip? 
  • How long will my pictures be available (if shared online)? 
  • Will I be capable to get into the on-line gallery for free? (if using an on-line gallery) 
  • Will my on-line gallery be private? (if using an on-line gallery) 
  • Will I be capable to share the pictures while at the event? (if using social network) 
  • Will the pictures I get have a watermark? 
  • Are you currently getting the whole photo or photo strip?

Add The Scrapbook (or Guest Book) 

A Guest book is an empty scrapbook which the vendor will deliver with them.  Guests will be advised to write an encouraging note to the few, and their latest photo strip will be put next to the notice.  This allows guests to take pictures which reflect their personality and also leave their words of wisdom!  This could be a fun and thrilling thing, and is a step above the traditional “guest book” at a wedding. 

Scrapbooks are often major hits at any wedding, and your guests will love them, but you’ll love the memories much more! 

If you’re going to add any extras to some package, this will be the Add-On to add!
