When planning your special day in Arizona, SnapShot AZ wants you to have lots of memorable photos from all of your wedding guests. Photos of your friends having fun, being silly, and looking great. Yet, having selective items in the background that really tie in your wedding and remind them of where they were at when it was taken when they look at the photo years later. The setting within the photo booth is crucial for getting the photos you are imagining. Below are tips for putting together the right photo booth setting for your wedding.
- Choose a Simple Back Drop
The background you place in your photo booth is probably the most important decision you will make in regards to the photo booth, and luckily you have options. Go with a single color to start with, maybe silver, gold, or the standard white, gray, or black—all classic colors. If you have a theme, you could also incorporate that theme from the wedding into your backdrop. However, keep it simple. You want your guests to stand out in their photos and not be overtaken by the busy backdrop.
2. Props and Accessories
Creating a setting that encourages guests to interact in amusing ways is what a photo booth is all about, and one way to do that is to add props to the mix. Props prompt your guests be creative, interact with one another, and be silly. In Phoenix, for destination weddings, we do a lot of Old Western themes, but for local Phoenix residents, we tend to do more traditional wedding themes. Roses that are the wedding colors, just married sashes, etc. Props are going to make your photo booth a lot more fun!
3. People Need to Know It’s There
Setting up a fun photo booth is great, but people have to know it’s there so they can utilize it. That is where great signage is going to come in. At SnapShot AZ we start by dropping a sign into an attractive poster stand outside your photo booth to invite your guests inside. It’s also not a bad idea to create other signs around your wedding space to direct people to it. Small sign holders on reception tables are a great location for these signs since they are easily placed where people will be sure to see them.
4. Furniture is Important
When setting up a photo booth most people don’t think to add props to sit on. Furniture will encourage your guests to pose in a variety of positions. Adding a couple of stools that can be moved around will really add additional character to your photos. It also allows more people in one photo since some of them can be seated. You want to furniture to be small and able to be moved in and out of the photo booth, so we recommend something simple like stools.
A photo booth is a lot of fun and will capture a lot of memories you will enjoy looking back on for years to come.
