Photobooth slideshow from recent wedding...

Recommended Posts

hey gals i finally got around to trying on of those photobooth things at a wedding reception. i love the results and thought id share. it would probably be pretty darn impossible to do for a DW but not if the photog was local. i just couldnt transport all that with me to do it. and you need at least a covered stable place to set up. wind would knock over the frame. this was outside but set up between two walls that prevented wind. just thought id share cause i know how you gals love to see pics.

 

here you go - morgan and scotts photobooth slideshow.

Ok, so are you maning the booth or is it done automaticly? It definitly makes for different type of pictures. And I love that they are all pretty candid shots.. This is all new to me,, can you explain how it works more?

Oh Leigh I wanted this sooo badly at our wedding and now I really want it!!!!!

 

Part of our reception is going to be in a ballroom, so how did you have it all set up, exactly? I wonder if I can convince my photographer to try this? So much fun!!

 

Any feedback/advice would be appreciated!

glad you gals like it. im really excited about doing this at more weddings. there were plenty of posed moments but i love the images captured almost during the split seconds in between the posing.

 

i manned the booth. this is something i couldnt give up. part of it for me was drawing people out and getting that reaction. i actually brought a third person along with me to that wedding so they could help with the set up and then cover the reception while i was doing the booth. it was set up and running for about 2 hours. i got 9' paper and hung it from a frame. had to bring a flash and umbrella and then a big honking battery (not needed if theres an outlet) to keep the flash firing. i scouted the location beforehand. it takes about an 11'x15' area. as i said before setting it up outside would not work. especially in mexico where it always seems to be breezy at outside receptions.

 

there are a lot of different ways to do it. i just kept with what sean told me cause i really wanted that almost sterile background. i did toy with the idea of using a different background but went back to the plain ole background.

I saw this on a photogs website when I first started planning and loved it...this one turned out great! The bride was incredibly photogenic!

I love this idea. I've seen a few of these and I really like your style & background Leigh (although, perhaps I'm biased!). That bride & groom are hilarious- the bride was constantly in the photobooth- too cute! I love "Lovely Day" too, I haven't heard that song in a long time.

 

Excellent job!
