How do you make sure that your photo booth gets the attention it deserves at your event? And what can you do to make the most out of your time with one of our photo booths?
Well, don’t fret, we happen to have a lot of experience in the matter, and as such, we can share all the tips and tricks about what works best! Whether you’re getting married in Seattle, Connecticut, Des Moines, Boston or New Hampshire, we’re ready to help you make the most of your wedding photo booth experience!
When it comes to maximizing the potential of your photo booth, location is truly everything! If your booth gets tucked away in a corner, where no one can see it, it may go unused, and that would be a terrible shame!
While you don’t want the photo booth to overshadow other elements at your reception, your booth should be clearly visible when your guests arrive, ensuring it will be high on their list of activities for the evening! And, that’s all before they get a peek at the prop box! Another big tip, try if at all possible to have the booth in the main reception space, and if not possible, beside the bar is a great choice!
In our experience, we’ve found timing to be extremely important if you want your guests to take advantage of your photo booth!
Remember, the majority of rentals are reserved for about 3-4 hours…so to make the most of your time with your photo booth, schedule it during prime-picture-taking time! This is often after guests have had a few snacks & drinks, and have broken the ice and loosened up a bit. Cocktail hour photo booths are great for this, but there’s typically no need to run the booth during dinner time, figuring in photo booth downtime over dinner is certainly an option.
The second crucial time for the booth to be open is directly after dinner, speeches and the first dance. Your guests will be itching to get up and shake loose, now that all the formal parts of the evening are done! And, it’s best to take advantage of the booth while the youngest and oldest guests are still there!
Sometimes truly all it takes are some outgoing guests to hop into the booth, and the rest of your guests will follow suit. You can also enlist the wedding party to help get the party started by getting in the booth! That’s part of their job after all, and will ensure that you get informal photos of your bridal party, to go along with all the formal shots from your photographer. Generally it just takes a few guests to show the rest of the guests how much fun the booth is, then they’ll all be clamoring for their chance!
Also, If your event has an MC or DJ, get them to call attention to the photo booth with a few well timed announcements! Most MC’s & DJ’s know that there will be a few things they will need to address for the guests, so don’t feel bad asking them to point out your amazing photo booth!
