About Me

working with kids to learn DSLR photography

I gave my son his first digital camera for his second birthday. Now that he is eight, we have upgraded from the toy camera to one of my older DSLR camera. He has come a long way as a photographer and has even begun learning how to do things with that camera that I hadn't even learned how to do. Learning how to take photos with a DSLR camera with my son has been fun, interesting and a time that I will cherish forever. We have created this blog to share everything that we have learned during our learning adventure.

Three Reasons To Provide Your Wedding Photo Booth Between The Ceremony And Reception

Many people love the idea of renting a photo booth for their wedding. The unique nature of this attraction, coupled with the variety of props, can make for some exciting and memorable photos for you and your guests. If you've decided to rent a photo booth for your wedding and are working out the details for doing so, a good idea is to decide when to have the photo booth available. Some people favor having it present for the entirety of the reception, for example, and while this idea can work, it's often a better idea to have the booth open during a specific timeframe. Here are some reasons to offer the booth for a period of time between the ceremony and the reception.

It Offers Something To Do

Guests at your wedding ceremony are focused on the proceedings, while between dinner, dancing, and socializing, there's often plenty to do at the reception. The hours between the ceremony and reception, however, can be a little dull. Often, you'll be off getting your formal portraits taken, while your guests will be left to hang around the venue and perhaps find ways to kill time. When the photo booth is open for use during this time, it gives everyone an exciting way to spend this time. Just be sure to have the booth available when you're back from getting your photos done, as your guests will often want you in the booth's photos with them.

People Are Sober

At many weddings, people drink throughout the reception, which means that by the middle of the evening, some people will have overindulged. When such individuals decide to head to the wedding photo booth, they may act inappropriately and potentially even damage some of the props. You don't want things to get out of hand, nor do you want to pay a damage fee because one of your guests broke something. When you schedule the photo booth to operate earlier in the evening, such risks are lower.

It's More Cost Effective

When you rent a wedding photo booth, you're commonly paying by the hour. While companies offer competitive rates that suit many budgets, you always want to keep your wedding-related costs under control. Simply put, having the photo booth operational for two or three hours, for example, will save you money compared to having it open for seven hours. Always consult with the rental agent to explain how many guests are attending your wedding. Based on experience, the rep will be able to suggest how many hours you should rent the photo booth for so that everyone gets a chance to use it.
