Photo Booth

When Aran and I started planning our wedding, one thing I knew that we would not be able to afford was a photo booth. I had seen them at a couple of Wedding Expo's and I fell in love with them, but the prices of them are outrageous. I quickly realized that it was something that was going to be way out of reach. So I didn't think anything more about it until we found our photographers.

Our search for our photographer was pretty ridiculous, but by the suggestion of Aran's sister's friend(a little confusing, sorry) we looked at a photography company called Yellow Paddle Photography. They are a company that has up and coming photographers who do great work, so they are significantly cheaper. of their packages includes a photo booth!!! And that package was under what we budgeted for a photographer so double yays are in order here!!!!!!

Now that we have the photo booth, I am looking for ideas to make a cute sign to put up so that our guests see it and know to get their pictures taken. I have seen all kinds of pictures of signs and I found a few that I think would be pretty easy to replicate and even add my own touch too. Oh, pinterest! You are amazing for things like this!

I think the first and the third are my best options considering that I don't have anywhere where I can hang a sign like the second one up. The one thing that I want to make sure of too is that it is big enough for people to see. I don't want them to be able to walk right past it and not even see it. Hopefully I can get my creative juices flowing and make something that everyone sees and goes, "Okay, we have to do this!" 

What is nice is that we get a CD with copies of all of the pictures that our guests take. Once we get this CD we are planning on making a guest book with all of the pictures. The only other thing that we have to figure out now is whether we want the "Fun & Funky" props like boas, glasses, hats, etc., or do we want the "Classic" look which has picture frames, letters, and chalkboards. Or do we want to do both for an additional charge? 

Are you wanting a photo booth at your wedding, but are finding it is too expensive? Look for ways to DIY. There are tons of tips out there on how to have an affordable DIY photo booth at your wedding. Or look for a photographer that has one included in their packages. 

I want to know what you guys think. Should we do the "Fun & Funky" look or the "Classic" look? Sound off in the comments below!



  1. I think either would be way fun!

  2. Photo booths are fun and definitely a memory and fun for the guests!

  3. wnat a great idea! I love it, you guys are so full of imagination and creativity.

  4. photosbooths are def. fun....does one idea go more with your wedding than the other? Either way is def. fine...but if you're having a very formal, wedding I'd say go more classic, and if it's a little more relaxed and not as formal then do the goofy? Just a thought.


Comments are way rad and totally make my day. I love reading each and everyone one of them :)
