Photo booths continue to be a popular wedding product for the fun they evoke and the memories they create. Here, the experts at Openbooths – a studio quality photo booth hire service – share their top tips for optimising the photo booth experience for you and your wedding guests.

1. Think of the photo booth as another photographer

Beyond just entertaining guests, photo booths naturally inspire people to create amazing
moments. Young meets old, friends meet family – all in an intimate environment where it’s just you and the camera; a photo booth will create countless inspiring moments that a photographer wouldn’t be able to recreate.

Why Openbooths: This is where the quality of the photos becomes important. Openbooths creates well lit, sharp, high resolution, non-blurred photos - just like one would expect from a wedding photographer, but offering that something extra.


2. Summer? Have a photo booth outdoors

Summer weddings usually allow guests to enjoy the sun by hosting activities outside which often leaves the photo booth forgotten inside.

Why Openbooths: The Openbooth is so flexible it can even go outside. If it starts to rain, give the team five minutes to simply just move it inside. This flexibility gives Openbooths the competitive edge.


3. Go open, and leverage the venue or décor for a beautiful themed backdrop

Big boxed booths are nostalgic and green screens are entertaining - but both can be a real eyesore especially when couples spend so much time making things look perfect.

Why Openbooths: With Openbooths, you can really incorporate your theme. Whether it is as
simple as using the venue or your flower décor to create a stunning backdrop, it will really serve to make your snaps stand out. The Openbooth is simply a pod with everything inside it… you don’t even need an extra table for the printer.



4. Use the photos in your wedding album

The photographer has an important job and can't be everywhere. The photo booth might just capture some missed moments that complement your official photos perfectly in the wedding album.

Why Openbooths: Openbooths’ impeccable image quality allows them to fit right in with your wedding album. The team can even provide the photographer with raw, un-edited images so they are entirely comfortable incorporating them into your album.




5. Print re-print re-re-print

You now have these amazing photos and moments from the photo booth. Print them, enlarge them, and send them to guests as a thank you.

Why Openbooths: Openbooths has paired with a leading photo finisher in the UK. Order
enlargements, frames and albums directly from your private microsite.


Always do your research on your photo booth supplier. If they are an exclusive supplier of photo booths they will be able to discuss all there is to know. The Openbooth product has been refined and developed over four years with a meticulous attention to detail. The team have designed and manufactured every aspect – down to every line of software.

Also consider your photo booth package; while unlimited prints and copies may sound like the best offer, this can take up valuable booth time as guests reprint their photos. Openbooths believes that a larger set of different photos has more value and as such, restricts the amount of reprints to maximise the amount of fun for your guests.
