Your photo booth will need to be located in a place where your wedding guests can easily find it. Allow for enough space for guests taking the photo to not feel crowded.

The backdrop is where you can let your wedding personality shine. Maybe you want to go full glam with a glittering backdrop, strings of lights, neon signs, or sparkles.

What backdrop style do you want?

Take time to research the best app for sending and receiving the images so that everyone has access. You can also use an iPad for the station or an all-in-one photo booth rental option.
