Adding a photo booth to your Maryland or Northern VA wedding reception? If you are, you’ve made a spectacular choice! Photo Booths are a great source of entertainment for guests of all ages. The customized photo strips are the prefect wedding favor and will remind your family and friends of the fun and laughs they had sharing this special moment with you.
One of the many benefits of the photo booth is that it captures spontaneous moments your professional photographer won’t. This is not a bash of photographers, far from it. A photo booth is no substitute for the skills possessed by a talented photographer; however; it allows people to relax a bit and encourages interaction. This results people not taking themselves quite so seriously and allowing their personality to shine through.
Listed below are a few tips that will help you select and get the most from your photo booth.
Grab a Prop
In order to really bring your photo booth to life, you will want to have props. You will want to make sure that they are quality props, not cheap throw away kid’s party props from the dollar store! Those types of props get damaged very easily as the event progresses. Often these go unused, and the photos, while good, don’t have the same exuberance shown as when guests have the freedom to roleplay with props.
What is a great prop selection?
Handheld voice bubbles and signs are great. These should be made of a hard material and not cheap paper stencils, which get bent on destroyed if a drink is spilled on them. Eyeglasses are another must have. Additional must have props are, wooden stick props (mustaches & lips), hats, and boas.
In order to quote the lowest possible price, many photo booth companies will cut corners. One area that they typically cut is props. Some will provide only lowest cost props while others won’t provide any props at all. Make sure you know what you are getting when you book your photo booth whether that be in Maryland, Northern VA, or anywhere else in the country.
Show A Little Love
Weddings are all about romance so make sure that you and your partner get some you time at the photo booth. Your guests will certainly want to get photos with you and likely you with them. Don’t get so caught up with pleasing your guests that you forget to get your share of personal photos.
Again, these are no replacement for the posed bridal party pictures or photos of the cake cutting. It doesn’t make them any less valuable in the years to come. Take just a few moments to capture just the two of you having fun. You will be glad that you did.
