1. Take care of your guests
We all know that this is your special day and no one can take that away from you. All the little details were planned and created perfectly just the way you like it and that professional photographer you hired is going to take amazing, magazine-worthy images of you and your significant other throughout this picture-perfect day. But wait… what about your guests? Who will take care of them and make sure they enjoy this day with you? How are they going to remember it?
There’s a reason why photo booths are gaining so much popularity in the event industry. It’s like having a babysitter taking care of the kids while you’re having cocktails and looking fab! You know that they’re in good hands and that they’re most likely having just as much fun, if not more. Which then reminds you… why aren’t you there having a good time yourself?? Go! And strike a pose!
2. A little spontaneity doesn’t hurt…
Whether it be corporate, wedding, bar mitzvah, fundraising or any social event, every single photo booth picture we’ve seen all have the same thing in common: people are genuinely having a blast. Props or no props, they all look like they’re enjoying every moment of it.
Watch them strut, sashay, whip and nae nae, but most of all, watch them laugh and giggle at your event—you’ll be the tweet of the town!
3. Keepsakes to treasure for a lifetime
“OMG! Little bottles full of bubbles and customized chocolate bars make such epic party favors!” said no one ever.
But seriously though—an image of that single bridesmaid holding a sign that says “Swipe Right,” being silly and sporting a gorgeous smile may just be what it takes to make that “Always a bridesmaid, never a bride” spell completely go away. Next thing you know, you’ll be the Maid of Honor at her wedding next year! Now, you have that picture to add on that beautiful slideshow during the roast… I mean toast.
4. Confidence booster
Think about that Company Christmas Party you’ve been dreading to go to because you’re afraid that your boss will try to spark a conversation with you and there will be that oh-so-awkward moment because you tend to blabber when nervous and you wouldn’t know what to do, but it’s so scary, who knows what else could go wrong, you might say something inappropriate or spill your drink on her or…. aaaaaahhhhh!
Okay, calm down.
This may come as a surprise to you, but your boss… she is human and probably knows how to have fun or at least wants you to have fun at the event. See how she lined up at the photo booth, put on huge glasses and hold a stache on her face? That’s what a photo booth does to people—they turn them back into their normal, human self.
Breath. Grab a prop. Strike a pose. Enjoy. She might even join you.
5. You pick #5. What’s your personal reason for getting a photo booth?
- Capture the memories.
- Instant gratification. No need to wait weeks to find out how the images turned out.
- Share the memories instantly with the world.
- Let your inner child come out and play pretend.
- Level up the fun factor at your event.
Whatever your reason is, you’ll be sure to have something to look back on and remember how, at that moment, every single guest had a smile on their faces. And now you have one too.
