Each couples has their priorities for their wedding that they can’t do without such as an entertainer, venue, photographer, etc. Couples always ask us is a wedding photo booth worth it. We say yes, a photo booth is definitely worth it and here are 5 reasons why.
Photo booth have come a long way since their entry into the movie theaters or food courts at the mall. Those dinosaurs where big and bulky but modern photo booths are open so that you can see the action going on behind the camera.Plus most photo booth include professional cameras as lighting so that you’re ensured to great quality photos. And who can forget about the props. It’s all about the props.
Photo booths can fit any style of wedding. From elegant to vintage or from casual to beach gatherings. Some companies offer multiple booths which can be tailored towards your wedding and theme. If you’re still unsure about if it’s worth having a photo booth at your wedding, please consider these reasons why you should.
Creating Fun & Real Memories
Your thinking, well I’m going to have a professional photographer(s) at my wedding. And yes you are. But they’re going to be focused on capturing you and your special moments. Your dress, first dance, and during you creating memories with friends and family during the reception. But nothing beats that photo taken when you and your all of your bridesmaids their silly hat and/or shades and hits the booth. They aren’t worried about looking great or striking the absolute perfect pose. The photos are always great because everyone’s true personalities shine. Some of your favorites and most talked about images will be captured right at the photo booth.
Keeping your guests entertained
You’ve hired your band or DJ to start the party. However, not everyone is going to dance at the reception or not for the entire time. Plus a photo booth is for all ages and if you’re going to have kids at your wedding, the photo booth will keep them entertained while they parents dance a quick dance or conversation with old friends. A photo booth giveyour guests another options for entertainment. It is a great activity for guests to be bouncing between the dancefloor and the bar while still keeping that energetic atmosphere.
During your wedding, you are bringing together people who might not know each other well or even at all. There are not a lot of opportunities during the reception that give families and friends the ability to talk with people they haven’t met yet. A photo booth gives guests the perfect opportunity to begin a conversation with someone they aren’t familiar with. Aunt Becky and the Maid of Honor might discover that they are alumni of the same university while waiting in line for the photo booth. A wedding is about bring two families together, should your guests begin to know each other.
Easy Personalized Wedding Favors
You’ve probably already started to think about your wedding favors or maybe you haven’t. But most couples don’t want to spend money on something that is just tossed away or placed in a drawer and forgotten about 2 weeks after the wedding.
Give your guests a personalized gift that reminds them of the great time that they have at your wedding. Even if you have a DIY photo booth you can always print out and attach a copy of the picture in your thank you notes to all of your guests. It’s a great keepsake that your guests will keep for month or years following your wedding.
Photo Booth are versatile
As we mentioned before photo booths have come a long way since they were invented. They don’t stop at taking pictures with a red curtain. You can use green screen to customize the backdrop or be transported to anywhere in the world. You could also create motion animated gifs or capture video messages from your friends and family. A lot of the booths can also connect to the internet so that you can post your images on social media almost instantly. You can include your wedding hashtag and watch the photos start rolling in on social media.
There are also ways to create a photo booth without breaking the bank. Look online for website that explain how to create a DIY photo booth as you might already have the items needed. If you’re having 2 photographers, you might be able to set up an area for a portion of the reception to take these types of photos.
These are just some of the reasons why a wedding photo booth is worth it. Regardless of how you do decide to do a photo booth, it is worth having it at your wedding reception will give your guests more entertainment options and help create unforgettable memories.

The photography and videography performed by Eventures at my wedding was excellent. Prior to the wedding, we had in-person meetings to discuss photography style, locations, and scheduling for the big day. In addition to the meetings, contact through email was very responsive and they always made every effort to accommodate us and our ideas for the photography. On the day of the wedding we had a mix of formal and candid pictures - both turned out great. And, they were very willing to work with any requests we had throughout the day. Overall, Eventures was great to work with and I am glad that we had them document this very important day for us.
They did an amazing job! I would recommend them for any occasion. I had my wedding outside in September. Brian came early and had locations picked out for my portraits, even though he was never at the location before. He was extremely personable and professional. They took pictures of everything I could have possible wanted. We also had the photo booth services. Everyone loves all the photos! They went above and beyond and I couldn’t have been any happier.
The staff at Eventures, was absolutely wonderful to work with throughout the “adventure” of planning our wedding!!! I cannot say enough good things about this company. For starters, I had looked at and made appointments with a few other local photographers (mostly solo photographers), and though their work looked great, I was weary that they were solo and also seemed kind of “a la carte” with pricing. Eventures had everything I wanted from a flexible staff, to reasonable package pricing, to videography, to beautiful work, etc… They are truly a one-stop-shop! Brian and his staff are young, friendly, enthusiastic, and passionate about their work. We met with him a few times (at flexible day and evening times) to plan out all of the details of what we wanted in our photo and video packages as well as all of the details of our wedding day. He was very specific and detailed as to what photos we would like, where we would like them, and who we wanted in them. Eventures is reputable and very familiar with many of the churches and venues in the Pittsburgh area, so he was able to give great advice and suggestions when asked. Again, I very much enjoyed and continue to enjoy working with Eventures! Their prices are very reasonable for the quality and timeliness of their work, and they are terrific to work with. Our experience has been perfect, and we couldn’t be happier with our choice!!!
Wow!!!! Our wedding photos turned out even better than we could have imagined. Beyond the formal pictures, there were black and white, angles we never expected and amazing candid photos. Believe me, choosing which ones will go in the album will be a wonderfully welcomed challenge. Eventures was the best choice we could have made!
We used Eventures as our photographer, videographer, and DJ! They were amazing to work with! They are all very professional and listen to what you want and turn it into reality. It was so nice to have all three from one vendor as they all knew each other and worked together seamlessly. Brian, the photographer, is very talented and we loved the pictures he took. We met with Brian a few times before the wedding and I was able to express certain pictures that I wanted and he made sure to get them the day of. He is very creative and puts you at ease. The DJ was also awesome- we got many compliments on him! The dancefloor was crowded all night long and he really knows how to read the crowd and play the right music. We havent gotten the video back yet, but we already know it will be amazing! Book these guys now!
Cannot say enough great things about Eventures. We found the entertainment to be one of the most difficult vendors to choose only because you can't get a real sample of their work unless you've been to a wedding they DJ'd for. We mainly relied on reviews and we 100% made the right choice!!! Our DJ was Chris and Brian was our MC. Very easy to work with, extremely quick on all responses, professional, reasonably priced and most importantly, they will go out of their way to make you happy. You couldn't ask for anything more. I only wish all of our vendors were this wonderful. From the first meeting you can feel the genuine want to make their customers happy. We had certain genres of music we preferred but gave free range to Brian to keep our guests dancing all night long. I don't think I left the dance floor once. We enjoyed every step of the process with Eventures and would absolutely recommend them!
These guys had our party jamming all night long! Seriously there wasn’t a moment of pause or lull in the fun! Thanks for an awesome night!
Jen and Jason’s video was fantastic! You did a terffic job blending their photos and interviews that you did together with each of them so well. We absolutely loved it! You did an awesome job DJ’ing the wedding too. Love the music, loved the video – you help make the night terrific!
