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!
