Whether it’s a wedding, or a dinner party, or even a corporate event, there has to be a way to capture the moments that will unfold. And while hiring a professional photographer has always been enough for the job, it would require allocation of quite a large amount of your working budget.

Recently, we have seen a change in this trend of event photography. More and more events have been installing photo booth, and most people would actually prefer hiring a photo booth over professional photographers for a number of reasons.

Here are some reasons why you’d be better off getting a photo booth at your next social or corporate event.

Guests feel welcome and appreciated

Having a photo booth in your event means everyone will get a chance to have their photographs taken and have a photo souvenir of the event. This will make your guests feel special and appreciated for their time and effort attending the event.

Means for your guests to socialize and mingle

Photo booths can be a fun excuse for your guests to mingle with others, especially in large events. It will not just give your guests an opportunity to have fun, it will also give them a chance (and perhaps the courage) to interact with those they don’t know.

Sparks creativity and fuels fun in parties

Most photo booths come with props and costumes for guests to wear and play with during photo taking. This gives your guests license to just be themselves and act silly. Watch them utilize these props in the most fun and entertaining ways.

Works well for those working on a tight budget

Hiring a photo booth is significantly less expensive than getting a professional photographer. And while these photos will not be professionally edited and composed, the variety of poses and fun actions your guests will be able to do with these photo booths will be more entertaining to look at. Plus, most photo booths will let you keep soft copies of all the photos taken during the event, apart from the print outs they give away to your guests.
