    So I was at a wedding this weekend and am totally stealing a great idea they had.

    Somewhere in the room the photographer sets up a background (this one used photo paper - on a big roll). There is a table of props - they used boas, hats, stick-on mustaches, etc. People grab probs and have their pictures taken - couples, groups, etc.

    Now I'm torn - do I use this idea and NOT put cameras on the table. I think table cameras might be too much and might end up costing more than the photo booth. Thoughts?

      We set up our own photo booth. All you need is a tripod, a camera with a remote and a way to make sure that people don't move the camera.

      I like these high quality photos much better than the table cameras, and yes, they are much cheaper. I'll post a link to our photobooth pictures when I get home tonight.

          Yes it was a lot of fun. Once they got into it the pictures got fun and crazy.

            I've seen LOTS of photo booths at weddings and I absolutely love them! I agree, you probably won't need the table cameras AND the photo booth, so I'd stick with just one or the other if I were you.

                I LOVE the photobooth idea. I'm personally not a fan of the cameras on the tables. From what I've experienced in the past (from my brothers and sisters weddings) the majority of those pictures were usually junk. I think you'd get way better pictures with the photobooth. That's just my opinion. Good luck

                  here are some photographers that have great photobooth inspiration

                  I have never seen the table cameras work out nicely. Most people have a point & shoot digital camera with them anyway. You usually just end up with rolls & rolls of bad pictures espcially if it's dark. I just got the digital files from all of our guests. Some people mailed me a disc, some uploaded them & other I burnt copies of while home.

                    a photobooth might be hard to do for a DW. The set up would be a lot to fly with.

                    I've seen other cute things like a photo guest book. I can't remember who posted it, but their photographer took pictures of guests holding up a marker board with something they wrote on it.

                      i love the idea of a photo booth over cameras on the table. just seems more fun. in my experience with the camera at the table...one person gets a hold of it and wastes all the film.
