Selecting a Photo Booth for your Colorado Wedding
There are so many different ways to do a photobooth at your wedding, depending on how much of your budget you’re hoping to allot to it. You can go the DIY (do it yourself) route, with a simple backdrop and polaroid camera, or even just a cell phone. Or you can hire a professional company to do it for you. We’ve listed a couple of our personal favorite Colorado wedding photo booths below. These folks do things just a little bit differently from the rest of the competition.
Another thing to consider if you want to have a photo booth at your wedding reception is that some wedding photographers provide this service as an add-on. There are several photo booth companies that do most of their business simply by selling easy setups to wedding photographers who then incorporate it into their photo packages for their couples. There are pros and cons to this. On the bright side, you’re likely to save money in bundling these services, but on the down side, companies that perform multiple tasks on the wedding day tend to be jacks of all trades, masters of none.
When we first started shooting weddings, we offered a photo booth option, but we found that we were spending too much time tending to the photo booth and troubleshooting and, as a result, were missing some of the more meaningful moments that were happening all around us. Of course, some photographers bring along an assistant specifically to handle the photo booth, but this person needs to be paid and fed.
Because of this, we strongly recommend booking a company that specializes specifically in wedding photo booths. It’s their entire career, so you know they’re going to do a great job and you’re going to have a wonderful and fun experience. And if it’s not in the budget, you can always go the DIY route.
