There’s a good reason why photo booths have become so popular at special events and are turning up more often at weddings, office parties, class reunions, bar/bat mitzvahs, and summer pool parties. We’re in the social media age: posting photos on sites like Instagram is a worldwide phenomenon and the photos taken inside a photo booth can be instantly shared.
Some people, though, have tried to set up their own custom photo booths for special events. A DIY photo booth has plenty of limitations that you won’t find with a professional photo booth rental. And if the DIY doesn’t function as the party organizers might have hoped, there’s no way to recover those costs.
Why Do People Love Taking Photos At Special Events?
Today, major events feel incomplete without a photo booth. Party and special event organizers have discovered that photo booths are a fun way to get your guests engaged with others, and they can be a terrific source of entertainment. Young and old alike enjoy gathering inside the booth to pose and click, and then see how their photos turned out. Photo booths are a great way to encourage people to become creative, especially since you can customize the background of the photo booth to match the themes of your event.
Photo booths are also ideal for creating and preserving memories of the event, and of the enjoyable time that was had by all. Those photos become a keepsake for everyone who attends. So the last thing anyone needs is an epic failure when the party starts, with the photo booth not functioning properly. Here are some ways that a DIY photo booth can go very wrong.
A Do It Yourself photo booth takes a lot of work to set up. It means gathering all the equipment needed, setting everything up correctly, and then figuring out how it all works. Are you sure you understand how to hook up your DIY camera to the printer so the photos will come out?
Professional photo booths eliminate that issue. Photo booth rentals, like the ones available at A Cut Above, can be delivered to your home or special event and set up by professionals. They can show you exactly how the photo booth operates so it’s an easy tool throughout the event. It’s also more likely that your guests will recognize the photo booth and instantly want to have fun inside it, while they might just ignore your DIY one, assuming it’s privately-owned camera equipment.
Enjoying the Extras
If you have your camera equipment ready, what’s your background? Do you need to go out and find props that are suitable for the theme of the event?
A professional photo booth gives you the ability to customize your backdrops in plenty of creative ways, and you have options for what you want in the background. So why bother hunting down props to find room for when a professional photo booth does it all for you?
Quality is another advantage you have with a professional photo booth — you always know the quality is going to be first-rate. With a DIY photo booth, you have to worry about getting the lighting just right, since a badly lit setting can mean poor quality photos. You don’t have to worry about lighting at all with a professional photo booth, which provides truly lab-quality photos.
Finding all the materials you need for a DIY photo booth, and then knowing how to set it up properly, takes up more time than it’s worth. Why not just go for the best with A Cut Above photo booth rental instead?
