5 Things about hiring wedding photo booths.

Wedding photo booths are all the rave right now and every couple wants to get in on the trend for good reason. While your other wedding photographer captures your big day beautifully, a photo booth captures your wedding in a very different way. With a photo booth, you can capture genuine and fun aspects of your wedding that you can look back on for many years to come. Additionally, if you’re not a fan of handing out the traditional wedding favours, letting your guests keep their photo booth snaps as their wedding favour is a chic new way to do wedding favour! So if the wedding photo booth trend is your thing, here are 5 things to consider when choosing a photo booth for your wedding:


1. Choose A Photo Booth Company That Is Local To You

As with everything about your wedding day, keep if local when it’s a vital service for your big day, that way you can avoid last minute hiccups. While it’s OK to buy your wedding dress, bridesmaids dresses or the groom’s wedding suit abroad, not everything you need for the wedding should be purchased from afar.

For the couple who choose the photo booth services of A Lifetime Shared, what you get is a service provider that covers local areas such as Birmingham, Shropshire, West Midlands, Wolverhampton and Leamington Spa. We’re only a phone call away and being local means you can pop in to see our photo booth equipment before making your booking so you know what you’re getting on your big day.


2. Closed or Open Photo Booth?

This one is open for debate between the bride and groom or their wedding planner. In our opinion, both are fantastic, depending on what you want and how you want your guests to interact with each other as they use the booth. There are couples who say closed booths reduce interaction between guests while others say they are better and allow specific groups who are shy to be themselves and have the privacy they need to be as fun and silly as possible when creating memories for you. 

As for the open booths, some would argue that it enables everyone join in on the fun and that a lot of people can fit in one shot and so on. Our verdict? Both are great points to consider, but ultimately, the choice lies with the couple, it all depends on what they want, after all it’s your big day.


3. Good Positioning Matters

When planning where to position your photo booth, make sure you it would be positioned somewhere out of the way in your wedding venue. You don’t want to be in the way of passing wedding guests. Yes, believe it or not, it happens! To make sure you take decent photos, consider planning for your photo booth to be positioned close to the dance floor with enough room for guests to get in and out. Being near the dance floor is the best way to tempt your wedding guests to join in on the photo booth fun without trying too hard.


4. Flattering Lighting Means Flattering Photos

Even the most good looking wedding guests can look terrible if the lighting in your wedding photo booth is poor. By choosing a good position for your wedding photo booth and ensuring that there is good lighting, you and your wedding guests can expect the photos to look flattering and fabulous. 

For the couple who choose the service of A Lifetime Shared, we’re only a phone call or an email away if you need advice on your wedding photo booth lighting. Remember, if you’re in the Birmingham, Shropshire, West Midlands, Wolverhampton and Leamington Spa areas, you could also pop in to meet with us and discuss your needs.


5. Consider Creative Backdrops And Props

The right backdrop will no doubt attract your wedding guests to the photo booth section – everyone wants to be photographed in front of a great background. Choose a great background and ask your photo booth service provider for props too! A good photo booth company should have great props that your guests can play.


We’ve covered 5 points but there’s obviously more to consider when choosing your wedding photo booth. Get in touch with us today to secure a booking for your wedding in the Birmingham, Shropshire, West Midlands, Wolverhampton and Leamington Spa areas.
