Photo booths are all the hype at weddings, and why not? They keep your guests entertained! Here's our step-by-step guide to make your own. 

Materials Needed:

  • Digital point-and-shoot camera
  • Camera tripod 
  • Remote shutter release 
  • Backdrop
  • Props 

The Camera - Place a digital point-and-shoot camera on top of an extended tripod at eye level, turn on the flash and connect a remote shutter release so guests can take their own photos.

The Backdrop - Pick a piece of fabric that you can hang. If you're having an indoor wedding, pin it to a wall, or if you're having an outdoor wedding hang from curtain rods, secure with rope, and nail into the ground.

The Props - Go on a scavenger hunt! Use props from your own home (like scarves, hats, glasses, frames). Or make your own from paper (lips, mustaches, ties). Even provide chalkboards or dry erase boards for guests to write messages on.

The Location - Choose an area that doesn't get crowded in the reception, but is still easily accessible.

The Extras - After the wedding is all said and done, you're back from your honeymoon, and all the gifts are unwrapped and put away, go through the camera's SD card and save the ones you'd like to put into an album. Those memories will last a lifetime!
