Photo booths arrived on the scene several years ago and took the wedding industry by storm. It’s a trend that’s here to stay.
There are a variety of options – from a couch with or without a backdrop and a few props, to a vintage step-inside box. You can have a live photographer or an automated machine. The best photo booths print two strips on the spot: one for your guests to take home as a keepsake and one to be pasted in an album for the bride and groom, plus digital copies available to all. Doubling up as both entertainment and a favour, a photo booth is always a big hit and most especially when it is open later during the evening once guests have had a chance to get into the party spirit!
We caught up with project manager at Pie in the Sky photo booths, Gigi Geldenhuys.
