Here you will find out some great reasons why photo booths in Margaret River are taking off, what you can expect from the services in the region, and to go about hiring a booth for your wedding day.
So why should you really hire a photo booth?
Variety is the spice of life
Photographers can sometimes be considered expensive if you are on a strict budget. So maybe you don’t need the photographer there the whole night? It might be more economical for you to let the photographer go home early after the formalities are over and let the guests have all the fun in the photo booth!
On another note, it can also be a great idea to have both a formal photographer to capture all the moments of the evening, and have the photo booth to catch all the candid and novelty fun that ensues. Why not get all angles of the evening recorded, after all it is your wedding day!
An ice breaker like no other
Weddings although very fun for guests, can start off a little stiff sometimes. Guests don’t know each other, the crowd is big, and there are many unknown faces around. The photo booth can be the perfect ice breaker for your crowd to loosen up early and get the celebrations started!
What better way to get chatting than whilst getting ready to step into a photo booth or getting together for a group shot with the other guests. There may be some new found friendships, new faces to names, and even new romances blossoming around the booth.
Our tip is have the booth set it up in a visible location for guests to see as soon as they arrive, then they won’t be able to resist the positive draw of the booth. The fun props and smiles will quickly replace any uncertainty and shyness amongst the crowd!
It’s a unique experience
Many couples use the opportunity of the photo booth to create a unique experience for their guests. They do this with props relating to their favourite things, themed props, fun dress ups, and even personalised props that take the guests through their dating history! After all, it’s all about celebrating the happy couple.
A great photo booth will also supply a range of backdrops, from the classically romantic to the fun and quirky, patterned, or natural backgrounds of the scenery at your Margaret River reception venue. You can also arrange for a green screen set up with your chosen supplier where you can insert just about anything you wish for your guests to pose in front of.
The hard evidence
A wedding photo booth gives your guests a wonderful gift to take with them from your wedding day. They get to keep their photo strips and do with them as they please. Most of the time they end up stuck with pride on guests’ fridges or carefully added to scrap books as a lasting reminder of a great day and night.
Guests can also be asked to leave a strip for the bride and groom in a guest book next to the photo booth. Many couples like to have this ready, with pens and blank spaces in the book for heart-felt messages to be written from guests. This is a great keepsake for the couple to look back on after the day is over.
Of course your prints will all have a customised ‘logo’ on them of your names and wedding date, or whatever else you would like to say and include.
Social social social
Social media is a large part of our lives whether you are deeply involved or not. Guests love to share photos and show their friends and followers what a wonderful time they are having at your wedding. You will likely have a steady stream of photos coming out of your wedding day.
What better way to harness this than with photo booth technology which allows guests to immediately upload photos taken from the booth. Many couples ask their guests to use a hashtag for photos also which is a great way to collate all the online images taken by the booth and by guests.
Embrace the social and technology elements and collect even more photos to remember your day with!
And so much fun!
Okay so one of the huge reasons our couples love wedding photo booths in Margaret River is the hours of fun they bring to the guests! You can get props involved, fun posing, and lots of laughter happening very quickly. What better way to embrace the celebration of your wedding day than with a fun-filled wedding photo booth experience. Your guests will love you for it.
Photo Booth Features
The latest trend in photo booths involves the ‘open booth’ which is, as the name states, open and not enclosed in an actual booth-like space. This means that more guests can fit into photos, more fun can be had, a greater variety of backgrounds is available, and larger and more exciting props can be used!
You will see these set up with a lovely draping background (or whatever you choose to have), with some props ready and to the side, and camera operator in front ready to take the fun wedding snaps.
The service of a common wedding photo booth begins with set up. All that is required from you is a small space and some access to power – meaning it can be set up inside or outside. It also includes a professional and skilled booth operator that will be with your from start to finish. And then concludes with a pack down of all the equipment.
Some couples like to have the booths set up outside in the warmer months and especially during the day time, so guests can enjoy the beautiful Margaret River surroundings. Others prefer the set up to be inside.
The most common background for weddings trending right now is a silver draping backdrop with themed props.
Photos are of course always supplied to the bride and groom post-event so you can see all of the wonderful pictures taken at your wedding. Setting up and packing down maximises the time of usage for guests as the booth is there on arrival and gone only after the guests leave. It’s not something that you will ever have to worry about on the day.
Most suppliers provide these features, upgrades or a combination of them:
- Unlimited prints
- Custom photo strips to match invites and themes
- Quality backgrounds, draping and scenes
- Immediate social uploads
- Customised frames
- Magnetic backings
- The fastest of DySub technology printers to help make for a seamless event
Rather than using a webcam style camera in the enclosed booths, an open booth has the advantage of the supplier taking photos with a professional DSLR camera. This provides a much higher quality image and also allows the photographer to get a little creative and get the best out of the guests.
So include something extra memorable and unique at your event for your guests. A professionally operated wedding photo booth will do the trick quite well!
