Your wedding is one of the most special days in your life, and one of the things that make it so special are the magnificent photos you have of it. Now, we’re fully aware that wedding photographers are never going to get replaced, but what if you could add something a bit different to it? What if you were to add a photo booth to your wedding?
You may think who would want a photo booth when there are professional photographers taking great pictures of everyone, but just answer this question for us – is anyone ever goofy in those photos?
It’s obvious that you wouldn’t want your wedding to be some sort of a joke, but you also wouldn’t want it to be a snooze fest, so being a little bit goofy inside of a photo booth wouldn’t be too bad, wouldn’t it?
On that note, we wanted to share a few wedding photo booth trends that are going to take over 2023, so you can add them to your party if you plan on getting married any time soon.
360° Photo Booth Shoots
Everyone dresses up for a wedding, and everyone wants to show off their outfit a little bit, so why not do exactly that inside of a 360-degree photo booth?
One of the emerging trends are these 360-degree booths equipped with rotating cameras that film you from every single direction, capturing everything that you got on. So, do your little dance, show off a bit and go home with a cool little video of you, your friends, or anyone else you want in the booth with you.
The best thing about these, though? Imagine filming a kiss with this tech – it would look marvelous.
3D Photos And GIFs
We’re all accustomed to leaving a wedding with a few photos in our hands, and that’s fine. You often go home with some pretty sweet photos, but why not spice it up? Why wouldn’t you want to go home with a 3D image?
One of the best things that came with these photo booths are 3D photos and GIFs. Basically, what happens is, you go inside of a booth equipped with several cameras, and all those cameras fire up at once. Then, thanks to some sweet processing – you end up with a cool, 3D-looking image or a GIF. Totally cool, isn’t it?
Imagine having one large photo of everyone and everything that happened at the wedding? It sounds like too much work, doesn’t it? Well, if you were to take every photo and create a mosaic by hand – it would be a lot of hard work. However, if you allow a piece of tech to do that for you – it’ll be effortless.
Basically, the idea is that every photo taken at the booth ends up stitched to this large mosaic. So, imagine having a large screen at your reception, and every time someone snaps a photo – they’re added to it. And then, by the end of the night – you’ll have a perfect recap of your wedding – frame by frame.
Who says every wedding photo has to be elegant? Why don’t we take some goofy, funny photos? Well, if this latest trend is to be believed – we’re not opposed to those either.
The thing about photo booths, especially the newer ones, is that they can switch between all kinds of different backdrops. If you read more about it, you’ll come to realize that options for a backdrop are virtually endless, and as long as you keep your imagination going – you can take a pic in front of anything you like.
And, as of lately, folks at weddings love taking pics in front of really funny backdrops.
Fun Group Photos
It’s really hard to get a good group photo at a wedding. We do take selfies, and the camera crew does their best to capture every moment of the party, but to take a really fun group photo – you need a photo booth.
Thankfully, these new models aren’t your regular curtain-type booths (although some of them are), so you can gather all your friends, pose in front of a camera and take a fun group photo to mark the day when one of you got married. And, since none of you are holding your phone and no one’s taking the photo for you – all of you can get in the frame and be as relaxed as possible.
Props, Props, Props
No one likes boring photos, and if trends are to be believed, one of the best ways to spice up your wedding photo game is by taking pictures with props.
From hats, scarves, and funny glasses, to all kinds of other fun accessories, photo booths at weddings are equipped with all sorts of fun props. Anyone could get in or in front of the booth, grab a prop and snap a really cool picture with it.
Now, we don’t know about you – but we’re all for this fun idea.
Magic Mirror Photo Booths
Not everyone knows their angles, so it would be kind of great if everyone could look at themselves while posing, right? Well, yes, but – aren’t selfie cameras for that?
Well, they are, but selfie cameras just aren’t good enough to make a great picture, but you know what is? A magic mirror photo booth.
Basically, it’s your regular photo booth with a mirror and a ring light, so you can make sure you look at the part while taking a pic. Lovely, isn’t it?
Prints As Wedding Favors
Wedding favors are a nice gesture, but the thing is – most people don’t even take them home. However, what if you were to make wedding favors using a photo booth? Have everyone pose for a quick little photo, and then when they go home, they can take their pic printed on a coaster or something similar as a wedding favor. We’re sure these wouldn’t get left behind.
There you have it. As you can see, all it takes is a little bit of imagination and a photo booth to elevate your wedding photography game.
Hopefully, these eight trends speak to you, and you’ll decide on one, or more of them if you get married any time in 2023.
