Need to know the questions to ask your photo booth vendor? Not sure what you should expect for set up and goods received? Keep on reading for the scoop on photo booths from the expert on photo booths! If you’re in the Southern California area, make sure to check out the very sweet deal at the end of the post from Happy Foto Booth!
Planning a wedding and wondering what is the biggest splurge you may consider? Of course it has to be the photo booth! This is one of the ideas that started off as a niche, rare element and became a must-have, memory-making standard.
Your guests will jump into the photo booth at least once in the evening and they will get to take home their photo booth picture as favors from the wedding. They’ll end up taking many photos in different combinations of people, props, and poses. The photo booth makes for great breaks to cool off from the dance floor without keeping guests away too long. After a quick refresh in the photo booth, they’ll be ready to come back out and party!
There’s no denying that the photo booth keeps everyone in a festive mood! Don’t believe me?
Usually, it makes a great guestbook vehicle since the photo will make it into a scrapbook with the option for guests to leave messages or wishes for you to read later. Once you’re good and married, you will love going back to see the shenanigans that everyone enjoyed as they celebrated your wedding!
Happy Foto Booth supplies a scrapbook and necessary accessories to leave you with a complete compilation of all the photos from the night. Guests will have fun creating their pages and you will have fun reading them!
Don’t kid yourself. There’s nothing more fun than tossing on a feathery pink boa or top hat and accessorizing with giant sunglasses and mugging for the camera. Every photo booth is different, which is part of the fun as your guests hop on and off the wedding circuit during the season. So even if other couples hire a photo booth, it’s never the same experience. A Happy Foto Booth favorite has been Michael Jackson’s famous sparkly glove and pose with an inflatable microphone — people can’t get enough of celebrating the King of Pop!
According to Happy Foto Booth, an average-sized (150 or so) wedding will see about 45 people having fun in the Photo Booth in an hour! This number may help you decide how long you need the photo booth at your reception if you’re unsure about spending additional money. Think of it this way: if you’re having 100 guests, then two hours is plenty, but if you’re inviting your parents’ friends and in-laws’ friends and you’re way over 150, then you may want to add another hour or two so that everyone gets to enjoy.
Make sure your photo booth company knows the wedding events you’ll be including in your reception. Happy Foto Booth is always in tune with the parts of the reception that will not typically see any photo booth action. Events like dinner or toasts or special dances would not be favorable times to include for your photo booth schedule. Happy Foto Booth happens to be owned by a Jewish couple, so they also know the moments like dancing the Horah and blessing the challah that would be quiet for the booth. To make sure that your guests are enjoying these moments, Happy Foto Booth’s attendant will close the booth and suggests that your photo booth vendor does the same.
Happy Foto Booth wants to make sure you’re clued in before you hire a photo booth vendor. As a Los Angeles expert, Happy Foto Booth knows the tricks of the trade and wants to share some tips with you!
- After choosing a photo booth vendor, you should make sure the booth is set up one hour before the booth will start.
- Also, coordinate with your venue that power will be within 50 feet of the booth since the camera can’t snap away without plugging in somewhere!
- It’s best to have the booth inside the reception room, but near the exit if the booth is going to sneak out before your event is over.The last thing you want to see is the photo booth and all of its equipment rolling out in front of your cake as you’re about to cut into it!
Happy Foto Booth’s package will always include unlimited color or black & white photos, a prop box, touch screen monitors, a scrapbook for preserving your memories and a DVD with all the pictures. You will also receive an online gallery, live slideshow and an onsite attendant(s) to make sure everything runs smoothly. Prices usually start at $600 and go up from there. If you’re not a Los Angeles couple and can’t hire Happy Foto Booth, keep this package in mind as you make your decision on your photo booth vendor.
Step into the booth, snap a picture and enjoy the memories! But don’t forget — what happens in the booth, stays on the Internet! It’s likely you might enjoy a drink or two (or four) before going into the photo booth and let’s be honest, it’s not a party until someone falls right out of the booth. Oh, it’s happened! It’s a good thing the camera is higher than the floor and that part won’t be captured on film. Let the ice pack* be a reminder of the events of the evening. Uh, oops!
