Wedding photo booth ideas - Part 2

In part one we talked about some interesting photo booth backdrop ideas for your wedding.  Coming up, we are going to talk about props and keeping things simple for the best results.

Photo booth props

You want your wedding to be unique.  We do too.  One way to easily achieve this is to customize your prop selection.  Our ultimate suggestion is to curate your own props.  It takes some time to do this, but you are the only one who can match the props to your unique personalities and goals.  Here are a few tips for curating your own prop selection:

  1. Less is more - When it comes to props, try to choose a handful of marquee items and leave it at that.  There will only be 1-8 people in most photos anyway so leave the dozens of props options for someone else's wedding.
  2. Personalize and be specific - If you are a scuba diver, include some scuba gear.  If you like to make artisanal wool rugs, include some sheep stuff.  The point is that you shouldn't just search on Amazon for photo booth props.  Let your personality and interests be your guide.
  3. Ask your photo booth company for insight - There are some considerations related to glare, size, etc. that you might want to ask your photo booth company about.  Some props like cardboard cutouts and signs can produce a high level of glare.  Your photo booth company should have a good idea of what will work well, and they will be happy that you reached out so you can both work together to make sure the photo booth experience is exactly what you are looking for.

Keep it simple

Ultimately, one of the best ways you can customize your wedding photo booth is to keep things simple.  Make sure you are getting what you want by communicating your ideas to the company you work with.  Also, don't get too caught up in the minute details of the planning.  If you hire right, your photo booth company probably has great insight regarding what will work well and what won't.  Trust them, and focus on preparing for your wedding day!

Tips for your wedding photo booth rental

Here are our top tips for your wedding photo booth rental

Booking a photo booth for your wedding with LightBooth isn't complicated, but we've learned a few things over the years to help make your experience even better!

Get your times right

Weddings and receptions can be complicated affairs.  There are often a couple dozen items on the timeline, and things almost never go exactly as planned.  Ideally, you would have the photo booth open for the entire reception.  That said, if you are planning to have the photo booth open for less than the full time of the reception, try to make sure that the booth is open at the optimal time so you don't waste your rental.  Usually this means having the booth open later on in the night during the dancing portion of the evening.  Guests are more likely to let loose in the photo booth after a couple cocktails, and speeches, dinner, and introductions are usually the slowest time of the night for the booth.

If you do want to have the photo booth open during cocktail hour as well, ask the photo booth company if they offer any "idle time rates" for the times when the booth won't be getting much use like during speeches etc.  LightBooth offers a discounted rate for these times, and we are happy to do it because we want to make sure to be there to document all of the best moments of your wedding!

Don't be afraid to bring a few of your own props

We include a huge selection of great props for no extra charge, but only you know exactly what fits your personality and the personalities of your guests.  If there are any items that would take the photo booth to the next level, bring 'em along!  We will keep a close eye on them and return them to you at the end of the night.  If you need ideas, think inside jokes, items specific to your college teams, giant cardboard heads, etc.  (if you have any questions or need help with this, just let us know)!

Get in the booth early (and just the two of you!)

We always try to make sure to get the bride and groom in the photo booth early and often.  We're also happy to save their prints for them throughout the night (gowns don't usually have pockets).  Sometimes though, we notice that the bride and groom get so busy doing other things that they don't make it over to the photo booth until the very end of the event.  Obviously, there is a lot going on so we don't suggest that you spend all night in the booth, but the photo booth does provide a perfect opportunity for the couple to take a few minutes to themselves and get some fun photos in the process.  We have even received some messages from couples saying that a few of their couples shots from the booth ended up being their favorite photos from the whole day!

Have FUN

After all, the whole point of booking a photo booth for your wedding is to let loose and have fun with your friends and family.  The fact that you'll take home prints and digital photos that you'll treasure forever is a huge bonus, but the photo booth has this unique way of getting people to relax and just have some good, clean fun.  We believe in it, and we hope that by having LightBooth at your wedding, you will realize this power as well.

Feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions about booking a photo booth for your wedding.  Even if you're not in Colorado and you've never even heard of Denver, we'd be happy to help answer any questions you have and help you get the photo booth experience you deserve.
