DIY - Photo Booth

Photo booths have become a popular way to capture those special memories and your guests unique personalities at everything from weddings to birthdays. While professional photo booths can be costly, creating your own can be an easy and fun project that is sure to provide you with an album of amusing and memorable photos.

  • Choose a backdrop for your booth. Simple options include a sheet, tablecloth or curtain hung on a clothesline with clips. Another option is constructing a more elaborate free standing backdrop. 
  • Use your own digital camera or rent one from a service like Camera Renter. Make sure to set the camera up on a tripod and test it to make sure it is centered. To make it easier for guests, set the camera up with a remote cord so no one gets left out.

  •  Get creative and have fun! Be sure to include a variety of amusing accessories to allow guests to express themselves. Ask your friends and family to go through their closets to find suitable props (ie. boas, funny hats, costume jewelry, etc.) A white board or chalk board is a great way to allow guests to add a personalized message and individualize their photos.
  • As a thank you to guests, print off and send them their pictures after the wedding so they can share the memories of the big day!
 Here are some great tutorials I found for more inspiration. Enjoy!
