Photo booth question...

Recommended Posts

I really want a photo booth as the guest book, but I need ideas. I thought of painting some antique frames and using props as well as a whiteboard to write a message to the bride and groom and use my DSLR camera and tripod for snapshots, but then they wouldn't get to keep some pics for themselves. Polaroids "give" you the pics after being taken but where and how will I go about buying or renting one? Or would it be better to rent a photo booth, if that is possible? Any suggestions would be awesome! :)

My aunt and uncle had a DIY photo booth at their anniversary party. They used just an average digital camera (not dSLR) and printed the pictures on a printer they brought along with. I'm not sure of the logistics of it, but I know it can be done! This article might help a little, it's one of the few that suggests using something other than your laptop's camera:

If you want something more instant, the Fuji Instax cameras seem a little more popular than Polaroids, and the film should be easier to find. It would have a nostalgic feeling!

Thank you!!!! that link helped a lot!!! I really like the idea of a camera that prints your pics right on the stop instead of having to deal with a printer Since im getting married on the beach, less is more!

Oh my goodness, the Instax would be a bit more manageable on the beach than a big photo booth setup! I think the instant prints would be fun for everyone.

Thank you! Does anyone have any pricing info or personal experience to share about this vendor?  So far, from what I see on the website, this is one of the better ones I've seen!
