Photo booths have become incredibly popular at weddings the last few years, and I’m not surprised! They’re so much fun and a great alternative to dancing (which some of us are just not great at, eh hem). Plus, it’s a great souvenir for your guests, and you get a copy too! What’s not to love?
There are a lot of great avenues to pursue for photo booths – some photographers can double as a photo booth, you can hire another photo booth photographer in addition to your main wedding photographer, or you can even go the DIY route with just a camera shutter remote, a laptop, and a printer! (This may become a future Wedding Wednesday post – look for it!) But of course along with the photo booth you’ve got to get the photo props! Sometimes the photographer might supply them, but if you want them to really go with your individual wedding and color scheme, it might be best if you order them.
Now, I’m a huge fan of supporting small businesses (heck, as a small business owner I better be!), so I love finding fun things on Etsy to buy and use. It makes me feel warm and fuzzy knowing that what I’m buying is helping someone else put food on the table. You too? Oh good, warm and fuzzies all around. Everything I’m posting here is from Etsy and I’m seriously considering buying some for my own photo prop supply — after all, a lot of these would be fun in engagements/portraits too. Use your imagination!

Aren’t those cute? I just think photo booths are such a fun idea for a wedding and I had to share a few more ways to make them a little more fun. None of these guys know I featured them or asked me too (and I’m definitely not getting paid through any affiliate links), I just thought they had some genuinely great stuff and wanted to share it.
So, what do you think? Would you have a photo booth at your wedding?
