A DIY wedding photo booth can add a fun and festive touch to your wedding reception. Whether you’re planning your own wedding or are helping friends plan theirs, it’s easy to set up a photo booth.
Before you start putting together your photo booth, you’ll want to pick a venue. Ideally, you’ll want to set up the photo booth area away from the main party. You can also choose a location that’s well-lit.
You’ll also need props, such as costumes, sunglasses, or inflatable floats. This will make your guests feel more comfortable. There are a wide range of options, from silly signs to costume-inspired wigs.
You’ll also need a digital camera and a tripod. Then, you’ll need to purchase or rent lighting. If you have the budget, you could hire a professional photographer to take the photos.
You’ll need a good app to share images. For example, you could use Instagram to post the pictures. Or you could use a shared drive. Guests can upload the images to their devices and share them with their friends.
Guests can also leave notes on chalkboards. Adding a neon sign will give your photos a fun, colorful effect. Guests can also write their own captions and share their stories.
Lastly, you’ll need a backdrop. It can be as simple as a plain white frame or you can get more elaborate with a glittery backdrop, sequins, or streamers.
If you’re planning to set up your own photo booth at your wedding, you’ll want to make sure your backdrop is attractive and inviting. To do this, you can buy a pre-made backdrop or simply make one yourself.
