Selfies have become an amazing social phenomenon across the globe. For some who enjoy selfies, their social media accounts can be made up entirely of the photos they’ve taken of themselves, sometimes just sitting at home, but usually while on vacation or outside of work. You take a selfie, I take a selfie — we all take selfies these days.
In a sense, selfies are so popular because it’s become a unique part of our social experience — in this case, our online social experience, giving us the ability to communicate with others, meet new people, and use it as a form of entertainment. And it’s a key reason why photo booths have become so popular at social events in recent years. While so many of us are excited about taking photos of ourselves to post online, a photo booth at a public event can be even more fun, since you’re now taking photos in a group.
What are the Best Events for a Photo Booth?
Here are some of the most popular events for photo booths, where family, friends and co-workers can enjoy the opportunity to snap photos together, and instantly share them online.
It’s hard to imagine weddings without photos — what were memory books created for, after all?
Any couple looking to make their reception a truly memorable one, that’s fun and lighthearted, should consider the benefits of a photo booth, which can be a great way to keep your guests entertained. In fact, this isn’t a new trend: photo booths have been a staple at wedding receptions for years. Now they also serve as selfie stations in the digital age, and don’t be surprised if the bride and groom want to take their own photos while they’re there.
Are you a business planning a corporate event as a way to show your appreciation for your workers? Don’t forget to include a photo booth at your office party. Outside of the food and the booze, it’s likely to be the most popular event among your workers.
Office parties become a lot more fun when your employees have an opportunity to gather in the photo booth and start taking photos together. It gives your workers some fun keepsakes to remember the event by, and they’re also going to start blasting those photos on their social media accounts. That’s great advertising for your business.
What’s better in the summer than gathering up your family and friends and enjoying a pool party, complete with a barbecue, burgers and hot dogs, drinks and lots of splashing around in the water? Pool parties are the ideal event for a photo booth, since the booth lets your guests show everyone just how much fun they’re having — before and after they go for a swim.
Photos are a big part of any birthday party — you want to capture those moments of you blowing out the candles on the cake, opening the presents, hugging your loved one. A birthday party is always a fun event for the one celebrating their birthday, but this event can be even more fun for your guests once you include a photo booth. Suddenly everyone is celebrating, and not just the birthday boy or girl.
A photo booth at any of these events is likely to not only be a hit with your guests, but one that allows them to hold on to some special memories about a time and place where they had a terrific afternoon together. Those photos will always help take them back to how enjoyable it was.
