Traditional Photo Booths
Traditional photo booths aren’t as common as they used to be, but almost everyone is familiar with them from old movies, from someone’s party where they rented a portable version, or during travel. These photo booths offer a clear place for people to sit in a bit of privacy and a pull curtain for privacy while you can goof around, make faces, and take pictures of you and your favorite people having fun.
These are probably the most common booths, and the ones that are going to get the most attention or the most play when it comes to booth rentals.
Open Green Screen Photo Booths
These are a very unique set up and more like a portable stage than a booth, often with curtains on two sides and a portable green screen behind.

Kiosk Photo Booths

These are a more narrowed down and portable version of the more conventional booths and among different types of photo booths and often some of the most popular when it comes to bringing the booths to an event as opposed to going some place that already has an established photo booth.
When it comes to making your final decision between different types of photo booths available. While this article goes over three of the most popular there are other photo booth and special event photographer setups that can also work. Diving in with this knowledge will help you find the right one so your event will be a major success, and people can enjoy themselves with abandon.
Capture Those Special Moments By Hiring A Party Photo Booth
It’s becoming ever more difficult to entertain and amuse guests at parties due to the fact that most of them will have seen it all before. For kids, they’ve probably seen one too many magicians or someone dressed up as a cartoon character, while adults are simply much harder to satisfy when it comes to making that party or gathering that much more special.
However, there is one thing that every single party guest wants – and that’s to have memories that will stay with them long after the day’s festivities have concluded.
With almost everyone owning a digital device, including smartphones most guests will be able to take all the photographs that they want, so if you really want to stand out from the party crowd it’s going to be necessary to not only provide an unforgettable moment of the special day – but also to give guests young and old an activity that combines the ability to immortalize their participation in that special day with a way to have huge amounts of fun.
Fortunately, there is a way to combine memory making with a huge dose of fun – and that’s by hiring a party photo booth.
These booths allow guests to step inside either by themselves or in a group and pose for a great photo that is then available immediately. And the great thing about it is that they won’t need to pose for a professional photographer – they just need to choose that right moment, all without the danger of disrupting the flow of the party or inconveniencing others.
If you’re thinking that the photo booths that are today available resemble the old school passport type image booths that used to be found in malls, train stations and airports across the world then think again – this is the 21st century and today’s photo booths are high tech versions of the photo booths of yesteryear.
Today’s photo booths that are available to people organizing parties have massively increased functionality, gone are the days of the simple head and shoulders black and white shots. Today high-quality color photography is the norm and many of the booths can also provide gifts that are saved to DVD or CD. In fact, that may not even be necessary – some of the more advanced booths allow partygoers to send their photographs directly to their email addresses or even post directly onto social media pages or other Internet based sharing sites. In only a few minutes your guests can share the fun that they’re having with the world. However, if you do want to go old school many of the modern photo booths also allow for the printing of retro ‘photo strips’ – you get high-resolution 21st century quality with a healthy dose of nostalgia and masses of great fun.
Not only do your guests get a great moment – you’re instantly recognized as a savvy and fun host or hostess – what could be better?
Of course, the fun doesn’t end with the simple photo process. Many of the companies that hire out party photo booths will also supply all the extras to make the party into a stylish fun photographic extravaganza. These companies will usually offer props such as wigs or even full costumes to make the day even more fun. In addition, many hiring companies also provide full backdrops which will allow guests to explore the outer reaches of their imaginations and have even more fun with that individual or group shot. These companies will also be on hand to help you design unique party packs for your guests to help them get in the mood for fun and also give them some basic equipment to make sure that the photos that they produce stand out from the rest.
The fun doesn’t stop there. You can make sure that your guests have a moment that is unique to your event in more ways than one. Advanced photo booths will allow for the printing of individual messages on the photo so the details of who is starring in the shot and just how much fun they’re having will be fresh in their memories whenever they take a look at that photo – even years later. And to make sure that those guests remember who was hosting the party each photo can be personalized to show the details of the event, so you’ll go down in the history books as the best host or hostess ever.
There are numerous types of booths to choose from, ultra modern or retro styling, large or small. The sheer number of choices makes hiring a party photographic booth a bit of a no brainer. They’re excellent value for money and the fun that can be had is really all up to the guests and how much they’re willing to exercise their imagination.
