A Question about Photo Booths

Unique and Affordable Photo Booths

I was watching an episode of Rich Bride, Poor Bride the other day and got a great photo booth idea. The couple wanted a Moroccan wedding, but they couldn't afford to drape the entire venue with Morrocon decor. Their wedding planner suggested creating an area to take pictures with a Moroccon theme and it turned out awesome!

Their photo area looked like something straight out of Aladdin! It was like a little Moroccan getaway, complete with fancy rugs, a couch, and other types of Moroccan decor. It was beautiful and definitely a hit at their wedding reception! Unfortunately, I couldn't find pictures of the actual set up, but here is a picture of the couple...

Here are examples of the similiar photo areas:



There's No Such Thing as a Stupid Question, Right?

How in the world do you get these photos printed immediately? Do you have someone standing by who takes the pictures and develops them later? Do you set up a digital camera and printer by the area?

The only device I know of that produces a picture instantly is a poloarid camera -- is that what's being used here?

We'd really like to have a photo area at our reception. Our wedding is going to be about a week before Halloween and I thought it'd be really cool to set up a vintage glam, somewhat gothic area where guests can pose with an awesome background for some fun and unique pictures. I've got some really great velvet curtains that are velvet that could be used for the backdrop. We could bring in an old couch and a unique lamp. I'd have masks, mustaches, and tiaras on hand for guests to get silly in front of the camera...

We love this idea! It's affordable and unique, but we just don't know how to pull it off. It seems are only other option would be an average photobooth.

Most of these are done with digital cameras. That is why you see the Macbook outside. Guests can presumably email the ones they want to keep, or can look forward to seeing them on the wedding website and/or Flickr later on.

yeah you don't have to have the capability to print on-site unless you really want to. polaroids are fun but since they stopped making the film it's more difficult to find, except off eBay and the bidding drives the prices up. there are other instant-print cameras out there, but I agree that a digital camera on a tri-pod would be the easiest thing - it can be as easy as pinning up some fun fabric in a corner as a backdrop, with the camera set up in front of it..
