Wedding Photobooth Must-Have Shots
There is one thing that you will never hear anyone say about a wedding that had a photo booth and that is “it was boring”. No matter the size of the wedding, there is never a dull moment in the booth! With all of your guests having a boothing good time, and yourself and your new husband or wife making the social rounds, it is easy to forget to stop and have a moment (or twenty) in the booth.
It isn’t uncommon for us to hear from our couples that they wish they had more photos in the booth themselves. Just as you will write a list of the must-have shots for your photographer, we implore you to also make yourself a list of your must-have photobooth photos!
To help you out, here are some of our favourite booth moments!
A bride and her tribe
There’s no doubt that yourself and your best girls already have sore jaws from smiling at a camera all day, so why not gather in the booth for some fun and silly shots? We love seeing the bride and her tribe letting their true personalities shine in their photobooth snaps!
Some great photo booth ideas for the bride and her bridesmaids are:
- posed and smiling
- kissing the bride
- hugging the bride
- holding bouquets
- bridesmaids under the bride’s veil
The groom and his crew
Some of our favourite photos are when the groom and his best mates huddle in for some photobooth fun! We know all too well the struggle of capturing nice photos of your partner (is it really that hard to smile?!) but you’re bound to get at least a few in a photobooth. Don’t expect all smiles though, as the guys are known get up to plenty of mischief, too!
Some great photo booth ideas for the groom and his groomsmen are:
- posed and smiling
- making ridiculous faces
- serious faces and arms folded
- Classic movie poses i.e. James Bond
- Flashing matching socks or undies!
The newlyweds and their guests
As the newlyweds, many have travelled far and wide to share in your special day. You may be a bit overwhelmed trying to get around to chatting with each and every guest while also enjoying all of the bells and whistles of your wedding reception. Everyone wants a photo with the happy couple so why not grab each guest for a round in the photobooth while you catch up? This is also a good way of making sure each guests gets into the booth and leaves a photo and message for you in the black leather guest book that is included in your hire.
We can’t forget the new Mr and Mrs! As the guests of honour, you’ll be hard pressed trying to get a minute alone! Take advantage of the moment of privacy the booth can provide and capture some romantic shots with your new spouse (don’t forget some silly ones, too!)
Some great photo booth ideas for the newlyweds are:
- posed and smiling
- making silly faces
- showing off their rings
- looking at each other
Parents of the Bride and Groom
Don’t forget to grab Mum and Dad for some photobooth fun! These are always highly cherished shots and make great pictures for personalised thank you cards and even Christmas cards. You’ll be sure to see these prints displayed on your parent’s fridge the next time you visit!
Some great photo booth ideas for the bride and groom’s parents are:
- bride’s parents together
- groom’s parents together
- both sets of parents together
- bride with her parents
- groom with her parents
- bride and groom with each set of parents
Grandparents of the Bride and Groom
Similar to those with Mum and Dad, any photos captured with your grandparents will be loved and valued. It’s also great way of capturing some photobooth photos of just your grandparents – when you and your partner hop out of the booth, just touch the screen to start a new round of photos 😉 Some grandparents can be a bit photobooth shy at first, but once they’ve experienced photobooth magic, you’ll have a hard time keeping them away!
Guests from afar
If you’ve had guests travel from afar to be a part of your big day, we’ll hazard a guess that you don’t see them as much as you would like to. Make the most of the time you have together and create some long lasting memories in the photobooth. You’ll all be glad you did!
Some great photo booth ideas for guests visiting from afar are:
- guests with the bride
- guests with the groom
- guests with the bride and groom
- guests’ home location written on the chalk board</li
