Why You Need Both A Photographer And A Photo Booth At Your Wedding

Jan 10, 2023 | 0 comments

Your wedding is a magical day, that you will remember for the rest of your life. When it comes to making these memories, photos are a beautiful way to remember. You can look back on the photos for years to come. Laughing, crying (good tears) and talking about the special day that you had. When it comes to taking these photos you have the option of a professional photographer and a photo booth. Both of these options are great, and you definitely should have both if you can. Let’s see why you need both a photographer and a photo booth at your wedding. 

What is the difference?

When it comes to having photos from your wedding day, having both professional photos and photos from a photo booth can make the memories even more fun to look through. But what is the difference between professional photos and a photo booth?

Professional photos are taken by a trained photographer who then edits the photos before giving you the final product. These photos are designed to show off your best features, the colours and styles of your wedding and give you a beautiful, professional quality album to look through for years to come. 

A photo booth is organised and set up at your reception with the help of the amazing photo staff. You and your guests are then able to go into the photo booth or designated area and take your own photos. These photos can include props, silly faces and will show off all the fun you are having. 

Why should I have both at my wedding?

Your wedding day has many different aspects, and it is best if you are able to capture all of these aspects. 

Your professional photographer will be able to capture the moments that stand out such as you walking down the aisle, the look on the grooms face when he sees his bride for the first time and the ceremony. You can then have time with your photographer to take staged photos of the bride and groom, parents and the bridal party. These pictures are the ones that will form the professional part of your photo memories. 

Having a professional photographer at your wedding means that you are able to get the shots that matter and that you want to have to look back on for the rest of your life. You can discuss with your photographer the type of photos you want, ones you definitely want to have included such as group photos with parents and grandparents and parts of the ceremony and reception you want to have captured. 

Your photo booth is the ideal option for the reception where your guests are able to jump in and take photos as they wish. They can be themselves, not be worried about if they are smiling correctly and can have fun. 

The reason for having both at your wedding is that you will get the best of both worlds. Many people are uncomfortable in front of the camera and when the professional photographer comes around at the reception to get photos at the tables, it can make the guests feel uncomfortable; no one wants to be the person who accidentally takes a mouthful of food as the picture is being taken. Your photo booth makes it possible for you to get an endless supply of photos of your guests, in an environment that they are comfortable in. They can smile, pull faces and group together as they wish, rather than feeling like they are being forced to have their photo taken. 

Your wedding is your special day and creating as many memories as possible is ideal. By having both a professional photographer and a photo booth, it means that you can do this. You can get the styled photos from your photographer that will form your wedding album. And you will get a digital copy of all the fun and excitement people are having in the photo booth. Your guests will even get a copy of their photos to take home with them as well, giving them a forever memory.
