Here are 8 types of photo that really should happen in your photo booth!
If you’ve decided on a photo booth for your wedding (and you totally should, they’re awesome!), then it’s important to plan what types of shot you want to take in advance so that you don’t wake up the next morning wishing you’d got a picture of X doing Y.
- Bride and Groom
This goes without saying but you’d be surprised how often it happens that brides and grooms are so busy mingling with all of the guests that they forget to treat themselves to the very photo booth experience they themselves organized! Make sure you put some time aside to take some romantic shots as well as the silly shots with props!
- Bridal Party
Get the bride together with her maid of honor and bridesmaids to take some great photo booth shots with props. The larger the group, the earlier in the event it’s best to try and get this shot!
- Groom and Groomsmen
There are some great photo booth shots to be had with the groom and his groomsmen. Depending on the group size, get the groom picked up by all his groomsmen for a fun, unique photo. Even better, why not get as many props on the groom as possible!
- The Parents
Of the bride and groom, we mean. There might not be many occasions in which both sets of parents get together – the next might be the couple’s first child’s christening! Get a few nice poses as well as silly shots to show their future grandchildren.
- All the Kids
If you have kids at your wedding, they’ll love a photo booth. If it’s not too much of an impossible task, try and get all of the kids in one shot with props!
- Jumping Photos
Ready, steady, JUMP! This type of photo is great because guests concentrate so much on the act of jumping that their expressions are really funny and spontaneous. Alternatives are 1, 2, 3, turn, where you turn from facing backward to facing forward on the click. Those with loose long hair will get a really great ‘swoosh’ effect on the picture!
- Silly Photos
Silly photos are a must! Leave inhibitions outside the booth! Silly photos will make you laugh all night long and for years to come too!
- As Many People in Shot as Possible!
This is quite a challenge! See how many people from the wedding party you can get in the shot at once! You’ll get some really great expressions!
The truth is, whatever type of photo you take in the photo booth, you’re bound to have a great time. Moreover, you’ll have memories and souvenirs to last a lifetime. And, if you go on to have children, you can show them what a great time you had when your adventure as a couple really began. Above all, have fun, the rest will happen as a result!
