How to Use a Photo Booth at a Wedding

How to Use a Photo Booth at a Wedding

Photo by Jen Huang Photography

Here’s a good article written by Trisha Berendt  on DexKnows Weddings about renting photobooths. I just have a few things to add or change:

  • At the very beginning Trisha advises you to check dates with booth owners 3 months ahead… while this might be enough for some dates, it’s not enough for all dates. If you had trouble finding a venue for your reception at 12 months ahead of time you have a popular wedding date… and you should be looking for a photo booth 6 to 9 months before your wedding. Or you can wait, and either rent from the most expensive option, or the guy who isn’t getting booked because of his bad reputation for poor service and low quality.
  • In step 3 she wants yo to use the booth yourself which will encourage others to get in on the fun… she’s absolutely right! Use the booth early and often… bride and groom, each of you with friends, family, the photo booth operator, wait-staff, get everybody in on the fun.
  • And in the end she gives tips that I highly recommend myself. Keep the booth until the end of your reception, and have the DJ or band announce the booth all night, especially if they see it not being used.

Our photo booth was a big hit with our guests. Our wedding was a little over two years ago, and people still comment on how much fun it was. I even still have the print of my husband and myself displayed at work, the one strip of photos is able to capture how much fun the whole day was for us. I would recommend this as a must have addition to any reception.  Thanks for the memories!

My daughter's wedding was in October, 2010.  I was looking for ideas for the reception online at the Knot when I read about a couple who had a photo booth at their wedding.  I had never heard of it but thought it sounded cool.  I started researching on the internet for photo booth services in our area. MugShots Photo Booth offered the most for your money.  I called and talked to Tony Mueller who patiently answered all my questions.  We subsequently hired MugShots Photo Booth for the wedding reception. We saved about $300 with MugShots compared to other companies' prices for similar packages and services. Tony traveled approximately 100 miles to our venue in Springfield, IL and had everything set-up prior to our guests arriving.  It was one of the most popular activities at the reception for both young and old alike.  Guests loved picking out props amd hamming it up with a friend or group of friends.  It was a blast and our guests appreciated getting a photostrip to take home as a momento of the fun they had!  And of course, the bride and groom LOVED their scrapbook with messages written to them from friends and family along with a copy of each photostrip taken at the reception.  This was one of our favorite things about the reception and I would highly recommend MugShots Photo Booth.
