Have you all noticed how the ol' fashioned photo booths are making a come-back? About 3 years ago we attended a wedding that had one and it was super fun. The great thing about it was that it was instant...and I mean instant gratification! This photo booth was programmed to supply 2 copies, 1 for the wedding guests and 1 for the wedding couple to keep for their wedding album. Genius, eh?
I recently inquired into getting one for my cousin's upcoming wedding and the price is $300/hr with a 2 hour min. = $600. This may seem expensive at first blush, but when you add up the travelling time, set up time, attendant for the booth and take down time, as well as the cost of the photo paper and equipment...it's really quite worth it.
For the rest of the 98% of wedding couples that are on a tight limited wedding budget, I discovered an app called Pocket Booth that will pretty much give you the same results. This will set you back 99 cents to buy the app. Available for iPhone, iPad, Nokia, Android.
It allows you to choose the color of the final print, sepia, B&W, antique or color.
Choose 3 or 4 photos per strip and even the length of time between shots.
If you have a newer model printer that has Wi-Fi capabilities, then you can print it immediately or save to your camera roll or send to your email, Twitter or Facebook right away too. Talk about fast!
I've been pouring incessantly through Etsy and found these very cool wedding photo props like fake moustaches, retro looking eye wear and chalkboard sign bubbles to write your own message too.
I really hope that my cousin decides to do a Wedding Photo Booth of some sort. It will be so much fun.
