Here is an example of our Open Air Booth without the backdrop.

This is a photo booth that is not contained within a frame or a curtain. There is a kiosk-style photo booth stand and guests can choose their props just like with any of our photo booths. We have many different backdrops available too, so you can really tailor the experience for your guests.  Our Open Air Photo Booth is great for any event and is a really popular choice!

Unleash your inner model with the Open Air Photo Booth! This booth has an interactive touch screen that is super easy to use.

How Can You Get a Copy of Your Images?

With the Open Air Photo Booth, you have numerous options for getting a copy of your photos. Not only can you go traditional with prints but you can also share via the internet! Within the print option, you can choose the color effect and quantity of prints for your photos. Digitally, you can send your photos via email, text, or you can upload to your favorite social media site.

Who Might Want to Use it?

Since this photo booth doesn’t take up a specific size of space, it’s ideal for locations where space is limited either in surface area or height. It still gives you the same fun as any other photo booth and can still fit large groups in its space.

This photo booth is a top choice for school proms and college parties. There’s something about students watching each other have fun taking pictures and bouncing new photo booth ideas off each other!

If you don’t fall into the school or college category, this is still a great photo booth for your party. Imagine seeing your grandmother have fun with all of the props in an open photo booth? You wouldn’t be able to enjoy that experience in an enclosed booth.

Why Should You Choose the Open Air Photo Booth Above Other Types of Photo Booth?

The great thing about the Open Air Photo Booth is that you can see what’s going on! Your guests will be inspired by what others do, so it can really turn into a whole lot of fun. An open booth can be a great way to break the ice among groups of guests who might not know each other very well. Open-air booths have a variety of backdrop choices too! You can really tailor your event however you choose.

So, what are you waiting for? See how much fun you will have in our Open Air Photo Booth!

DIY Photo Booth Vs Professional Photo Booth

A photo booth is a great idea for your wedding but they can be pretty expensive. In this post, we look at all the pros and cons of hiring a professional photo booth and compare them to a DIY photo booth. Which one will come out on top? Let’s take a look!

DIY Photo Booth

Firstly, let’s look at all of the reasons for and against having a DIY Photo Booth.

Pros:

  • A DIY Photo Booth is entirely customizable. You can make it exactly as you wish – background, props etc. – to fit your events theme!
  • You can reuse your photo booth at other events. If it’s a really good photo booth, you could hire it out to other people!
  • You can use cost effective materials to build the actual booth. Then you can save your money to buy the more expensive equipment.
  • You’re in control of exactly where and how you want it set up. Since you can customize it as you wish, you can make it fit ANYWHERE in the venue! So long as you have access to electrical power.

Cons:

  • Picture Quality – Unless you know the proper light setting on your camera, a homemade photo booth won’t have as good a quality of prints as a professional booth
  • A DIY Photo Booth isn’t necessarily cheaper – once you add up all the props, backdrops, lighting, camera. prints and printers. It may end up turning out to be more expensive than hiring a professional!
  • It’s a hassle! – When you’re organizing an event like a wedding, you’ve probably got a lot on your plate already without the added stress of designing a photo booth.
  • Instant prints – unless you use a Polaroid camera or purchase an expensive photo printer, you and your guests won’t be able to have instant prints of their photo booth experience.

  • Less Stress – Let someone else take care of everything! Your choice of backdrops, props, and style of photo booth will be chosen well in advance. When it comes to the day of your event, you won’t have to worry about anything and can concentrate on other things that you need to do
  • Better technology – Photo booths are more than just a camera, props and a backdrop. You can get all sorts of interactive, video-taking photo booths these days. The quality of the images will be excellent.
  • Improved lighting – Since a professional photo booth is designed to take really great pictures, the lighting will be just right!
  • Instant pictures and sharing – With a professional photo booth, you could have instant access to high-quality photos and videos. Many professional photo booths offer the opportunity of instant sharing as well on social media, by text or by email. DIY booths tend to lack this instantaneous sharing capability.

Cons:

  • A professional photo booth seems expensive, particularly the high-tech ones. However, it is still cheaper over all than a DIY booth of the same quality.
