Utah’s Hottest Party Trends!

In the words of Ferris Bueller, it is so choice. If you have the means, I highly recommend picking one up.

Ferris was talking about a Ferrari, but the sentiment applies equally well to a photo booth. Photo booths are one of the hottest party trends out there, popping up everywhere from wedding receptions to galas and parties. They serve as both entertainment and historian, serving up fun to guests while recording the event’s memorable moments.

There are dozens of companies that deal in photo booth rentals; you can find them by searching online or calling your local party supplier. Two Boston companies at the head of the search engine results are Photobooth Favors and Boston Photobooth. Each has various options available for photo booth rental, and most companies offer instant printing of photos as well as a CD backups or scrapbooks. Most photo booth rentals also come with an attendant who can help guests use the booth and make sure that it is properly functioning throughout your event.

Where can you use a photo booth? Try a wedding reception or anniversary party to record guests on the couple’s special day so that the couple can mingle without worrying about taking photos. A prom, graduation party, or class reunion would be a good school-based event to showcase photo booths and bar/bat mitzvahs, sweet sixteen parties, and quinceañeras are great for teen parties at which to feature a photo booth. Your company might even consider bringing a photo booth to its next trade show or fundraiser and can spice things up by offering a photo booth at its summer picnic or holiday party.

At $700-$2000 per event, photo booth rental is not for everyone. I must admit, however, that I can’t think of anything more memorable for a party, and therefore think the money is absolutely worth it if you can afford it. If you can, try to rearrange your budget elsewhere to have this “wow” factor at your next party!

Top Reasons to have a Photo Booth at your Wedding

 

So, your wedding is coming close. And you want to organize it in the best possible manner. You want to add different things to the event. There’s a single objective for that: to make it memorable enough. So, why don’t you do your best to make it memorable enough? To capture each moment from it and keep it for eternity? For that, you will need a camera. But clicking great photographs is not enough at times. If you are eager to create a perfect and uniform setting for the photos at your wedding, you should create a wedding photo booth. And it’s not extremely difficult to make one as well. Having one at your event is among the best ways you can ask people to pose just the way they wish right in front of the booth.

So, why should you include a photo booth in your wedding venue?

Here is a quick look at some of the major reasons, which can drive you to do that.

Offer an Amazing Background

Your wedding is an event, which you will never like to forget. So, it’s important to have an area where every guest can go and have themselves clicked. You might even print them and give them to the people in the photos too as keepsakes. Having a great background will help to make these images enchanting and your guests will love to show them to their friends as well. Hence, adding a photo booth for your wedding event can be the best way to help them click some wonderful pictures at the event.

Offer Wonderful Memories as Gifts

What are you planning to gift your guests for your wedding? No matter even if you are not giving them anything. They surely will have something from the event. It’s the memory. So, you can help them carry that memory with them. And in a beautiful manner. That’s why a photo booth is necessary at the event. It will make sure that your guests are not clicking the photos in front of places, which make the image drab. Colorful and engaging photo booths will change the complexion of the image for the better.

Create a Souvenir of the Enjoyment

Every happy and enjoyable event should have a souvenir. So that you can cherish it for as long as you wish. It is possible for you to create such a souvenir for your wedding by just clicking some great pictures in front of a beautiful backdrop. For this, you will need a properly made photo booth at the venue of your wedding. The guest can carry the printed pictures with them as the souvenir of the enjoyment that had.

Catch the Right Mood

Are you aware of every corner of the venue that you are using for your wedding? Will all the spots ensure that the guests are able to click some amazing pictures there? It might not be possible. In fact, the requirements for a perfect picture may not be present at those places. The light or the setting may not be proper enough. So, you should create a place with the perfect lightng and a colorful backdrop that catches the mood of the event. That’s what the photo booth at your wedding party will help you achieve.

Help Guests Bring Out Their Crazy Self

Will everyone be able to unwind themselves and show their crazy self in every area of the venue of your wedding? It might not be possible. That’s why you need a wedding photo booth. If possible, keep the camera hidden or remote. It will ensure that the guests are able to unwind themselves inside the photo booth without much hassle. This is going to help them have some amazing pictures.

It is important to make your wedding event successful and take some memory from it for the future. A wedding photo booth is going to help you do that in a perfect manner.

How to Use Your Wedding Reception’s Photo Booth!

Photo booths are the hot new trend at wedding receptions across the county and it’s easy to see why; they provide the guests with hours of entertainment and great souvenirs of the day. Guests leave with lots of fun photos they took with their friends and family that they will cherish forever. A great way to incorporate a photo booth into your wedding is to provide picture frames to your guests as your wedding favor. This way your guests will be able to proudly display their photo strip from your wedding at their home or office.

The frames along with a printed insert can serve as name cardholders to let guests know which table they are seated at or left at their place setting with an insert containing a reminder to use the photo booth and special thank you note to them for attending your wedding. When selecting a frame for your picture strips you will want to consider three factors: size, price and quality. Check with your photo booth rental company to determine exactly what size photo strips they offer. The most common sizes are 2″x6″, 2″x7″, 2 ¼”x8″ and 4″x6″, however, there are a lot of other size photo strips out there. Ideally you would like your frame to be about ¼” taller than the photo strip to allow the photo strip to slide in and out easily. On average a frame for a photo booth picture will cost around a dollar per frame, sometimes higher for the larger frame sizes. Since the prices are all very close the real questions is quality.

What material is the frame made from? Acrylic is the most common and offers good quality at an affordable price. The 1.5mm acrylic tends to be a little flimsy while the 2mm offers a much sturdier frame so always look for the thicker acrylic. Another thing to look for is how the edges appear. Depending on the manufacturing process used some edges are rough while others are smooth and rounded. The rounded edges of course indicate a much higher quality. The final thing to consider is if the frames come individually wrapped to avoid scratching during shipping or in transit to your wedding venue. You might spend a few more cents per frame for the better frames but the higher quality is evident and seeing how this your gift to your guests and something they will be displaying at their home well it is worth it.

Comeback of photo booths exposes yearning for what’s real!

Cellphone photos are disposable and forgettable. In a photo booth, you plunk your money in and the result is frozen on film and in time. Hipster bars lead the way.

I was taking photos at a music after-party in Pomona when a guy went off on me for stealing his friend’s image.

I might have been forgiven for thinking the friend would appreciate the attention. He was standing in the back room of Aladdin Jr.’s cafe with an open umbrella over his head. But no matter; I explained I was a journalist.

His buddy was having none of it.

“You’re just another girl with a Tumblr account and a camera phone,” he sneered.

I was shocked. And not only that he would think someone my age would stay up that late if I didn’t have to. Had the generation that documents each new cocktail and dessert tray on Facebook finally realized it was over-exposed?

Umm, no. Rest assured, we are all still our own celebrities, recording every move for our 2,568 friends. Which is why it’s strange that something so old-school and hokey as the vintage photo booth is making a comeback.

In a handful of hipster bars — Cha Cha Lounge, Edendale Grill — people are lining up to cram into photo closets, pull the curtain closed and wait for the flash to pop and freeze their goofy expressions. Corporations, sensing the next big thing, are even renting photo booths for promotional purposes.

Back in the day, photo booths made sense. We had to wait days for the drugstore to develop our film. Three minutes after we fed three bucks in the slot, the film strip, damp with developing chemicals, slid down the metal chute, and we were grabbing it away from each other to see how we looked.

But now? There’s a cellphone camera in every pocket. Digital photos appear instantly. And with a few extra taps, we can beam them to our friends and relations almost as quickly.

So what’s behind the photo booth revival? At heart, I think it is a longing for authenticity. When we don’t like a cellphone photo, we hit delete and do it over. Photo booth photos are of the moment. Once the money is plunked into the little metal slot, we have to live with the consequences.

“I’m so over digital,” said Bess Byers, a Venice marketing researcher darting out of the One-Eyed Gypsy’s vintage booth. “With film you only have one shot and that’s that. You have to make it count.”

In the digital world, “you could take a picture of a cockroach and make it look like Godzilla,” Orange County resident Fernando Lazaro, an office worker, said, explaining why he and a friend ducked into the photo booth one night last week at the One-Eyed Gypsy bar downtown. But in the photo booth world, “this is real.”

Photo booth photos fulfill my yearning for a lost physicality. The march of technology has wiped out so many things we used to hold in our hands and savor. Clicking through photos in front of a screen is an evanescent thrill that can’t compare to leafing through a photo album, or spotting a childhood shot of a friend spilling out of a cardboard box.

Digital technology gave us photography without limits. But suddenly, we’re seeing the virtue of limits. Photo booth photos are on a human scale. They take place in real time in a private space we chose to occupy.

And everyone in a photo booth picture is your real friend. Silver Lake filmmaker Angel Lopez said he sees pictures of friends on the Tumblr accounts of people they don’t even know. By contrast, Lopez still has photo booth pictures he took with each guest at his birthday party six years ago.

To get back to my nemesis at the after-party, digital images have a way of spiraling out of our control. Once our friends Like it, Digg it, Share it and Tag it, our online picture flies out into the universe and an uncertain, unlimited after-life. I’m not just talking about that embarrassing shot of beer pong inebriation.

Lopez posed this hypothetical: You put a picture online, and your friends and relations repost it. Somebody working on a “10 Best ….” list runs a Google search and finds it on a blog or online scrapbook. Presto, you’re No. 6 on the “Cute Guys with Beards” site.

This is not to say digital photography is losing its charm. On the contrary, the photo booth concept has gone meta. My colleague Jessica Gelt recently reported on the newly renovated downtown lounge Elevate’s pseudo-photo booth, “iSnap,” which sends photos straight to Facebook or Twitter — just like a cellphone camera!

But they can’t claim the unvarnished authenticity of the print photos. In fact, photo booth photos are so great we just have to share them on Facebook. “I’ll probably take a photo of myself with the film photos with my cell and then post it online,” so-over-digital Bess Byers said.
