All you need to know about your wedding photo booth
Weddings are one of the most significant events in our lives. And the best way to capture important
memories of this day is through photos. Using a wedding photo booth can go a long way towards
accomplishing this task. Since it normally involves large groups of people coming together for a photo, the
activity never fails to entertain. Once you return from your honeymoon, you can browse through the photo
book and absorb the memories. That said, there are a few things you may want to consider before choosing
a photo booth service. Here is all you need to know about your wedding photo booth.
#1. Equipment should be top notch
When it comes to photo booths, proper lighting is usually more important than the size of your camera’s
mega-pixel. This is because most photo booths are designed to utilize squeezed spaces and a limited depth
of field. Therefore, enquire whether the photo booth company can provide professional lab quality photos,
and how fast their printing process is. You don’t want to end up with sub-standard print quality images,
which are likely to smear or fade quickly.
#2. Wedding photo booths are not created equally
You and your guests will use and remember the wedding photo booth for many years to come. Ensure that
your memories of this experience are good ones, including the booth quality, photo quality, attendant, and
customized backdrops. Does the actual booth reflect the one that was advertised to you? Is it made of
professional, high quality materials? More importantly, is it compatible with your event?
#3. You can create an instant online photo gallery
As soon as you take the last photo, the photo booth company should be able to upload every shot from the
booth onto a designated Gallery Page for your wedding. You can then view, share, or download the photos
on that same day.
#4. The photo booth company should be insured
A reliable company should be registered as a business entity with the necessary state. Find out whether
they have sufficient General Liability Insurance Policy and Worker’s Compensation Insurance. The company
should also have actual contracts for their events and secure payment processing. If something happens at
the wedding, neither you nor the venue should be held liable. The company will take responsibility.
#5. The staff is an important part of the experience
The two most important qualities of a photo booth operator are fun and professionalism. Both of these
characteristics will go a long way towards making your wedding photo booth experience memorable. The
staff should be punctual, on point, and act respectfully towards your guests and other vendors. They should
be dressed in wedding-appropriate attire and ensure that the photo booth area is neat throughout the time.
They should also have a sense of fun, helping guests, suggesting props, and generally keeping the party in
the photo booth going! The ability to maintain a balance between fun and professionalism will also come in
handy. They should avoid drinking or carousing with the guests, and just try to be jovial during the event.
