5 Tips for Choosing the Right Photo Booth for Your Event

Whether you’re planning a wedding, a gala, or just want to add some fun to your next corporate event, a photo booth is sure to be a hit among guests. A photo booth gives your guests an opportunity to capture moments from the party with their friends and also get silly by taking photos together in ridiculous costumes. These photo booths have become quite popular over the last few years, especially among millennials.

If you’re thinking about adding one to your next event you’ll probably want to hire a professional company that can provide the best services for your guests and budget. If you’re not ready for such a commitment, renting one might be your best option – there are many different photo booth rental companies out there who will deliver and setup the photo booth for you.

1. Decide on the Type of Photo Booth You Want

There are two basic types of photo booths: Classic and Digital. Classic Photo Booths use film which means you won’t get an instant copy of the photos and you’ll have to wait a few days to get them. They’re also much cheaper, but they won’t work well for corporate events – if you want a more modern feel, you’ll want to go with a digital booth. Digital photo booths are equipped with a computer and scanner that instantly transforms your photo into a digital file. You’ll get a copy of the photo on a CD or flash drive – which you can print out if you like. Digital booths are more expensive, but they are easier to use, less messy, and fit in better at a corporate event.

2. Ask Guests What They Want

Ask your guests what they would like to do in a photo booth. If you have a younger crowd, they’ll probably just want to take funny pictures together. If you have an older crowd, they may want to create a more formal album for themselves. Whatever you’re hosting, you’ll want to know how your guests will want to use the booth so you can make sure it’s set up in the right way. Plus, it will save you some time and stress if you know how the booth will be used before it arrives.

3. Find Out How Many People Will Attend

Before booking a photo booth, make sure you know how many people will be at your event. Not all booths can fit a certain number of people, so if you’re planning a large event and want to make sure everyone can squeeze in, you’ll want to find out what the maximum capacity is.

4. Check Out The Company and Its Reputation

Check out the company’s website and find out what kind of photo booths they offer and what kind of services they provide. Make sure you know how much time the company will set up the booth so you can plan accordingly. You’ll also want to make sure the company you choose has a good reputation among past customers. You can do this by looking at reviews on websites like Yelp! and Google.

5. Ask to See Samples From Previous Events

Ask the company if they have any photos from past events they can show you. This will give you an idea of what your guests are going to get and will help you decide which company to go with. If you’re booking a digital booth, you’ll also be able to see how the company edits their photos. This will give you a better idea of what your guests will get and help you decide if the company is right for your event.
