Look Here! 3…2…1… is the familiar & exciting countdown inside a Photo Booth just before the flash goes off and you capture an amazing memory. Now you’re trying to decide if saying “cheese” inside a photo booth is for you, or just cheesy?
We’ve gotten this question before, and we want to help put things into focus.
Photobooths have become increasingly popular at Sweet Sixteens, Bar Mitzvahs, and Corporate Parties—lately, we’re seeing a lot of them at wedding celebrations too. Elegant ones.
Aside from being fun to take, these photos give your guests the perfect keepsake to take home. More importantly, it offers them the opportunity to take photos when they’re ready to step away from the action for a few minutes, instead of trying all night to capture photos with their phones that come out poorly lit—smartphones can be so distracting!
So, the questions is, is this enhancement the right enhancement for your wedding?
As you’re deciding, please keep these 4 questions in mind:
1. Can you keep it classy? The Photo Booth you choose should compliment your décor so that it looks elegant and inviting to your guests – decorated to match your theme and your event space, instead of looking like an eye-sore.
2. Do you know what’s really involved with the booth, and, for that matter, who’s running it? The last thing you want to do is step into a tiny booth with seven of your best friends only to find out that there’s an attendant mumbling something about how he “only prints two.” You’ll want to make sure that a well-dressed gentleman is on hand to make the experience top-notch for your guests—and print enough copies to go around.
4. Can you trust the Source? – Too often, I hear about the “cheap price” someone found for a photo booth—and as their guests entered the beautiful venue, they saw something that looked like it belonged at a carnival, similar to the photo below. Worse still, there were no frames, cheap props and the photos weren’t saved. #Disappointment
There are many companies out there that can provide a Photo Station that’s right for you. We know we’re up to the task.
You’ll spend a little extra money and ensure better quality.
Pure & simple.
