How Do I Know What Booth To Choose?

Photo booths have been growing in popularity for years now. That means that compettion can be fierce, and people are coming up with amazing ideas that turn into creating super amazing photo booths There are a lot to choose from out there, but not every one will be right for your specific needs for your event or party. How do you know?


Some photo booths are large in size. These booths are usually closed, so people actually get inside a literal booth for photos. These are a lot of fun and provide a little privacy for those who are on the shy side when getting photos taken. The downside is that not many people can fit into them, so if you're wanting group shots, this will not be easily done, if at all. Some of these larger booths, though, are what are called "open air" and they are a large cabinet that takes a photo or photos, and are not enclosed. Our Magic Mirror is one of these. These booths are great for receptions and larger events. They are not so great for parties in your home where space may be limited. The photos they take are the best quality when used with a backdrop, to bounce light when in larger spaces. These booths require quite a bit of space, so you'll need to know the specifics and confirm with your venue that they can provide the space needed.


Trending now in photo booths are iPad booths. These booths are a lot of fun, and are usually lower in cost to rent. Where a lot of the larger booths use professional cameras, these smaller booths have an iPad placed in creavite cabinets or kiosks that use software to take fun photos. Many of them also offer GIF, Boomerang, and some even go as far as to have background replacement and AI! Photos and videos can be digitally delivered immediately and shared to social media right away. These booths are perfect for smaller gatherings, such as family birthday parties, graduation parties, and parties in your home. Surprisingly, these photo booths are also great for businesses who want to advertise or draw in customers for brand activations and product launches.


Both styles are great for occasions of all kinds. Your photo booth rental company can help you decide if you are having trouble making a choice. Social parties, small events, big events, corporate events, golf tournaments, sports team games, wine tasting parties, quinceanera, weddings, birthdays, showers, and everything before, after, and in between, a photo booth is a perfect addition to entertain your guests and have fun momentos from the day!


Regardless of the type of photo booth, the possibilities are pretty much endless and they are being upgraded all the time. Who knows what's next? All I know is that it's going to be a blast!
