The Photobooth: An Event Must-Have

Ever since instant photo booths became a main stay at wedding and event receptions 2 years back, it has been an arms race among photography companies. Customers are constantly on the look out for better props, fancier backgrounds and faster prints. Since then, photobooths is sometimes an expected party starter for an event.

The service now comes in many shapes and forms. In this article, we examine the 3 different kinds of photobooths you can find in the market today.


1) The Modern Photobooth

Bright lights, plenty of funky props, a fancy background and lots of prints. That basically sums up a typical modern photobooth.

Some premium vendors like go the extra mile by allowing guests to retrieve their photos online and providing customised props.


2) Instagram mania

    This is some really good information about photobooths at events. My little sister wants to have one at her wedding. It is good to know that it would be fun to have a fun background in the booth or have some good props for people to use.

    Hi, thanks for the tips. I’m finding it really difficult to find companies that rent out or provide oldschool photobooths in Singapore; so I was really excited when I came across your post. Unfortunately the link doesn’t work. I know this post was written in 2013, but was wondering if you have updated info on this company or know of any other companies that rent out oldschool style photobooths? My friend really loves this concept and I’m helping her to research it for her wedding. Hope you’ll be able to help!
