Picture Perfect: The Ultimate Guide to Hiring A Photo Booth
Event Inspiration | 17-03-2015 | Posted By James Sandwell

Photo Booths are increasing in popularity for corporate events, parties and weddings. Only recently Kim Kardashian and Kanye West shared some photobooth snaps from their wedding which took place in Florence.

Many of the newlywed’s friends posted their pictures online which showcased the private bash in all its festivities.  And you can capture all of your memories too with your very own photo booth. 

Here at Sunshine Events we have extensive experience and knowledge in photo booth hire. We’ve provided the equipment to various private parties, events and weddings over the years so we know what works and how to get the most out of it for your special occasion.

Here is the ultimate guide to hiring a photo booth:

What is the background?

Try to hire a photo booth with Greenscreen technology. 

This allows your guests to have various backgrounds to have their pictures taken in front of, and offers you much more flexibility in terms of the fun photos you can capture. 

How many backgrounds are available to you to play around with? At Sunshine Events for example, all our photo booths have the following greenscreen images:

  • Disco
  • Underwater
  • Wonders of the world
  • Tropical
  • Hollywood
  • Wild West

Is there a video recording facility?

Some photo booths allow you to video record as opposed to just take pictures. This is fantastic at weddings to allow your guests to leave ‘Congratulations’ messages but they are also ideal for corporate events for staff to leave feedback and testimonials.

How big is the photobooth?

In our experience, we have found that as the drinks start flowing and the festivities begin, many party guests all want to cram into a photo booth at once for a big group picture. How many people can you fit into the booth? 

What kind of props are available?

We provide a great prop box with everything from inflatable guitars and glasses to bows, boa feathers and much more. When hiring your photo booth, make sure you know what kind of props are included for your guests to have fun dressing up in. 

How can you get the pictures?

How many images do you get of the event, when do you get them and in what format? 

Sunshine Events provide a disc of all the images but we can also supply a photo album in which guests can leave written messages too.  We also provide the disk of videos in our video booth package after the event.

Finally, is there suitable access?

One of the most fundamental aspects of hiring a photo booth which you need to clarify is will it fit on your premises? 

There need to be suitable access requirements, especially when moving the equipment through doorways and corridors. Is there a stairway or lift access? 

Make sure you find out all the size dimensions and the power supply needed. Can you physically hire a photo booth?

Allow your staff to give honest feedback at your next corporate event, utilise it as part of a team building party or capture the perfect memories of your wedding with our help.
