6 Reasons Why Photo Booths Never Go Out of Fashion


Photo booths aren’t new – they’ve been around for ages – but, every time the studio lights fire up for an event, something new is created. In the age of Snapchat and Instagram, you may wonder whether having a photo booth would be an old-fashioned choice? Naturally, we don’t think so, and the next section, we’re listing 6 reasons why photo booths will never go out of fashion.

Helps you #trend

In the age of social media, the influence of these platforms is so overwhelming that we sometimes aren’t sure whether we are in control of them, or they of us. Regardless, we embrace Instagram, Snapchat and others and enjoy making the most of fun trends. This may surprise you, but a photo booth can flawlessly compliment your social media goals. The customized GIF and boomerang features of the booths, outdoor photo booths and digital screen backgrounds will not only provide a fun party activity for guests, but also produce quirky, fresh and unusual pictures which ensure lots of attention is received on your chosen media platform.

They work for every event

Photo booths can bring their magic to any event regardless of the function type or size. You may think that photo booths are only suitable for weddings, but some of our most enthusiastic clients are those who’ve found the joy of a photo booth in non-nuptial events. Organizing a bachelor party, bridal shower or birthday bash? The photo booth will likely be one of the stars of your show, keeping everyone engaged and creating a priceless archive of memories.

Big impact, small cost

Event planning usually goes hand-in-hand with budgeting. If you have an important occasion coming up, you’re likely to be on the lookout for interesting ideas which can fit into budget. Photo booths provide real bang for your buck. A well-styled, well-placed photo booth in your venue instantly elevates the overall impression of any event. When compared to other event entertainment options, photo booths are usually a relatively affordable choice that makes a big impact.

Guests share the spotlight

At most weddings, the photography will be highly focused on the bride and groom (which is fantastic!) and guests can form a bit of a human backdrop. While we are all very happy to have the bridal pair own their spotlight, a big part of what makes a wedding such an exceptional occasion, is that the day is shared with guests who are special to the bride and groom.  When a bridal pair wants to ensure that they have loads of photos of their guests are shining and having fun in a less serious format than the traditional photographer’s shots, they book a photo booth with a set of high-quality props and filters. Guests really let loose once they’re in the booth and you’ll have the most spontaneous, silly and funny images of your guests to cherish alongside your more sentimental ‘serious’ wedding photos. You could even add a guestbook, where you get your guests to paste a photo from the booth and write a special message for you to look back on after the big day.


Today, just about everything, from your shoes to your car interior can be customised according to your preferences. With more and more people moving away from a “one-size-fits-all” approach when making decisions about spending their money, why should photo booth rental be any different? Customisation has moved out of the realm of luxury items once reserved for those with lots of expendable income. Customer preferences have evolved to expect quality and personalisation without unrealistic price tags. Photo booths, from the physical structure, photo taking device, props, backdrops and photo strips can all be personalised to look exactly the way you want it and reflect your unique personality or event objective.

Fit anywhere

Whether you have a big corporate venue or a tiny backyard party, we can find a photo booth configuration that work optimally for your space. From taking advantage of high ceilings with grandiose greenscreen designs to doing away with a traditional backdrop to squeeze the device into your desired location, we can make it work. Whether we’re using an open air booth with an existing feature like an exposed brick wall of fairy light curtain, you can get creative with the placement of a booth to make the most of your surroundings.
