Everyone loves a fun photo booth at a wedding reception, and especially diving into the box of props so they can play around and get a fun photo souvenir of the day.
There may be many wedding photography and video trends to watch for when planning your wedding, but aside from the professional photography of your big day, a photo booth is fantastic to generate casual and fun photos of your guests. We have a look at what to include in your photo booth props box that your guests will love to use.
There are some essentials, such as novelty sunglasses, a selection of funny hats, and signs, and you might have some ideas that are unique just to you, something with relevance to your big day and the married couple. Here are some things to consider.
The life expectancy of photo booth props is expected to be pretty short, and you can bet that some will have magically vanished by the end of the night. It might be tempting to save some pennies and go for the cheapest you can find, but it is important to strike the right balance between props that will endure the evening and value for money
Focus on the waist up
Keep in mind that the photo booth will typically only be capturing the upper half of everybody, so that means funky clown shoes and Hawaiian grass skirts will likely not be seen in the image, so go for props such as masks, hats, and glasses.
Bright and eye-catching
Brightly coloured, bold and big props are the ones that will make the most impact in the photos. You need props that stand out and are fun. Smaller inconspicuous props such as rings won’t get noticed. The more over the top the better!
Ensuring you have a good variety of different props for your guests means there will be more variety in the final photos, helping avoid them all looking a bit ‘samey’.
