Whether you’re planning your dream wedding reception or a themed party, you may be interested in hiring a photo booth to capture your guests fun filled memories. Below are 7 creative ways to get the most out of your photo booth!
1. Green screen magic
Thanks to the magic of a green screen, your guests can take photographs surfing in a tuxedo or cocktail dress or standing on a stage in-front of thousands of adoring fans. Your guests could also “travel” the world in one evening posing for photographs in front of the Eiffel Tower, a tropical beach and the Pyramids of Giza.
2. Red carpet experience
If you want your guests to feel like stars, consider setting up a photo booth inside the entrance to your event. This way each time a group walks through the doors, they’ll be able to strike a pose and pretend that they’re famous celebrities. If you hire a green screen photo booth make sure to use a red carpet background! Also consider providing your guests with glasses of champagne which can double as props.
3. A modern take on guest books
If you’re interested in hiring a photo booth for a wedding, graduation or a birthday birthday, consider placing a whiteboard and colorful whiteboard markers next to the booth, so that your guests can take a photo of themselves with a personalized message or greeting. If your wedding or party has a vintage inspired theme, simply provide a blackboard and a bucket of chalk instead.
4. Instantly share your photographs with all your friends
Have you ever posed for photos which a friend took with their camera but never uploaded? Well, now you don’t need to worry! The latest social media photo booths allow your guests to edit and upload their favorite snaps straight to their social media accounts. So instead of waiting for your friends to get around to uploading photographs from their digital camera, after your party you’ll be able to go straight to Instagram, Twitter and Facebook to see everyone’s photographs!
5. Dress up box
You’re never too old to play dress up! The beauty of a dress up box is that it can be as extravagant or simple as you’d like. As an example, if you’re hosting a wedding reception you could go rent a bunch of period costumes or keep things simple and provide feather boas and strands of pearls for your female guests and top hats and mustaches on wooden sticks for your male guests.
6. Fun filters and stickers
If you do opt for a vintage inspired dress up box, your guests may want to experiment with a sepia or black and white filter to add a touch of realism to their photographs. Most photo booths offer a variety of filters which can be selected after a photo is taken. Some photo booths even allow users to choose from hundreds of different stickers which they can decorate their photos with.
7. Souvenir or thank you gifts
If you plan on sending out thank you notes, choose a photograph of each guest or group and print it out to make a personalized thank you card. Alternatively, you could also order personalized mugs, magnets or stickers using your guests photographs.
There are endless ways to incorporate a photo booth in your wedding reception or party. You’re only limited by your imagination! One thing is certain however, if you rent a photo booth from Big Bounce Funhouse Rentals, it will be so popular that your guests will have to queue up to use it!
