When hosting an event, you want to make sure everyone is having a good time. Preparation is key, not least when it comes to the entertainment you choose for the occasion. Photo booths allow your guests to take pictures of themselves at your event, in a way that’s designed to be humorous. 

If you are planning on holding an event such as a wedding, birthday party, anniversary party, prom night or even a corporate event, here are just some of the reasons why you should hire a photo booth to make it a night to remember. 

They are highly entertaining

There is a reason photo booths are hired as part of the entertainment! Each photo booth company is different, but expect to find everything from props, karaoke and even wind machines. Such elements can be a great icebreaker between your guests too since they’ll be encouraged to take plenty of group shots as well as individual ones. 

The image quality is better than a selfie

If you’ve ever tried taking a selfie at an event (especially at night) the image quality isn’t that great. Even a top of the range smartphone can give you grainy images in such conditions. But with a photo booth, you don’t have to worry about taking the image yourself, meaning you can capture a better angle along with a clearer image too. When it comes to special occasions, this can make all the difference when you look back on the pictures. 

Printable memories

Remember the days of pulling out a photo album and reminiscing? Now we all take photos on our phone, we don’t print our pictures as much anymore. There’s no reason why you can’t upload your photo booth pictures onto social media, but you also get the benefit of having it printed out instantly too. Whether you stick the image on your fridge, give it to a friend or keep it somewhere safe, it’s a physical memory of a great time you had with friends, family or colleagues. 

Fun for all the family

When booking entertainment you always have to consider whether it’s appropriate or not for those who will be attending. Photo booths are one of the most fail-safe options whether the event is for children or pensioners. Even the type of events such as family celebrations or corporate functions does not alter the suitability of a photo booth. Therefore, you only run the risk of entertaining everybody and not offending them. 

Suitable for all event sizes

Depending on where you are holding your event, you may be limited where space is concerned. The beauty of a photo booth is that they are compact, meaning they are suitable for venues that are big or small. They also don’t require huge amounts of manpower to set up or keep running throughout the night. Instead, they’ll keep the laughs coming whether you’re in a tiny club or a giant conference centre. 

To sum up

Images taken on a photo booth hark back to the good old days, where a photo wasn’t just about posting on social media but capturing a moment in time. Photo booths are all about having fun and socialising with each other. They come with a range of hilarious effects and props and are a great way to keep your guests entertained, regardless of what the event is for. As one of the few forms of entertainment that are suitable for all ages, a photo booth is a perfect addition to any event.
