Not So Average Photobooths

Fun Additions For Your Reception!

Picture perfect weddings are usually pretty high on the wish-list for most engaged couples, but cookie cutter weddings? Not so much.

It’s getting pretty easy to blindly follow the pact and have the stereotypical Pinterest wedding, so don’t forget to put your own personal spin on things.

One of my favorite ways to spice up your big day? Getting creative with your Photobooth (or switching it up altogether).

Here’s How:

Video Messages. Instead of photos, why not live video? A lot of videographers can set up a video station where guests can leave well wishes, recall fun memories, or maybe even record a funny (drunken?) dance for you to watch and laugh over.

Selfie Stations.   We are the selfie generation after all. Set up an iPad on a selfie stick and have a guest-operated photobooth. Or just provide the selfie stick and an Instagram hashtag.

Photo Apps. If you like the idea of seeing your event through your guest’s eyes, but want to make sure you have access to all the photos afterwards, look into wedding apps that cater to that.   Look into Wedding Snap, Wed Pics, or Capsule.

Dance Floor Cams. Staged photos are fun and all, but candid dance-floor pics make for great memories. Sure you could just have your photographer capture it, or you could set up cameras timed to go off every minute or so. Better yet, get a dance floor Go-Pro or two!

GreenScreen Photos. Replace regular run of the mill Photobooth pictures against a white background with just about anything you want. Greenscreen technology allows you to super impose your guests into any scene you want; pretty vineyards, famous stadiums, the top of Everest or specific moments in history.

Red Carpet Pics. Have all your guests photographed like a movie star on their way into your reception. Keep the fancy rec carpet and paparazzi like photos going through out the night too, for a fun spin to your wedding photos. So glam.

Drones. How techy of you! But for serious, aerial shots are amazing. So attach a camera to one and get some sweet footage from above.

Photo Frame Backdrop. Instead of having your guests crammed into a booth, or stationed in front of a plain backdrop, get creative with your Photobooth station. Get crafty and make your own with fun messages, pretty decorations or cut out frames for people to stand behind or pop through. So fun!
