Your wedding is the most important day of your life. And this day is the best one to take some great photos of you and your partner. If you want to take amazing photos on the big day, it's a good idea to hire a good photo booth. You will get many snaps of all the people present at the wedding. Given below are some tips to help you choose the best photo booth.

Closed vs. open air booths

In a closed photo booth, the guests have to step inside. You can find these boxes in shopping malls. Since they are simple and easy to use, they are still used at weddings. This booth is self-contained and appears neat in the room. However, the downside is that they are heavy and can cost a lot to transport from one location to another.

The open-air type, on the other hand, can be easily transported. You can install it anywhere provided there is enough space. So, you can go for the right one based on your needs.

Picture quality

As far as the picture quality is concerned, the closed photo type don't offer high quality pictures. The problem is that most of these boxes use webcam to take photos. Another problem is that the lighting is poor. On the other hand, the other type uses DSLR cameras to take professional quality photos. For lighting, a professional studio flash is used. As a result, the image quality is the highest.

Backdrops

The open-air type offers a host of backdrop option. As a matter of fact, the majority of companies offer a wide range of backdrops to help you choose one that can meet your needs. However, it's important to keep in mind that the closed booths may not offer that many options as far as backdrops is concerned.

Size

The closed photo booths don't offer a lot of space inside them. So, if there are a lot of people, they will look like they are stuffed inside the room. On the other hand, the modern type offers a relatively bigger backdrop. Therefore, many people can stand together for the photo shoot.

Location

Make sure there is enough room for the photo booth installation. To give you an idea, most of the booths need an area of 3x3 meters. Therefore, it's very important to choose a place where the thing can be installed. So, choosing a good area is important.

DIY photo booth

If hiring a good photo booth is not an option for you, we suggest that you follow the DIY route. In other words, you can design your own based on your needs. Crafting a handmade backdrop is easy. Plus, you can use a Polaroid camera. The quality won't be high but at least you have something to have fun with the guests.

So, if you are going to hire a photo booth for your wedding day, we suggest that you follow the advice and tips given in this article. This will help you avoid making the wrong choice.
