What Type of Photo Booth Do I Need?
Photo Booth: Capture Co. Photo Booth
Customizable Photo Booth Backdrop
Capture Co. Photo Booth provides one of the most entertaining ways to capture all the funny, happy, goofy looks of love! Engage and share unforgettable moments with the people that matter most. Think snapping a selfie, but make it wedding luxe! Whether your guests want to print a photo right away, share it on social media, or engage in a virtual photo booth experience, these wedding photo booth pros truly have it all down to a science. In your Capture Co. package, you can expect to enjoy their on-site text and email sharing, GIFs and Boomerangs, custom-designed templates, premium backgrounds and props, an online gallery of event images, an on-site team to set up and tear down booth, and a booth attendant for the entirety of the night. Leave the big day with joyful memories of your sweetheart and all your guests with a fun photo booth!
Virtual Photo Booth
Are you hosting an online event? Or maybe you want your invited guests who weren’t able to attend to partake in your on-site photo booth. That’s where a virtual booth comes in. Capture Co. Photo Booth offers a virtual photo booth with their packages. Just send the link to your guests or include the URL on your wedding website. From the link, they will be directed to take a selfie that will have the same custom photo frame as what appears on the photos at the event. Such a smart idea!

Wedding Photo Booth Cost
Many variables can affect wedding photo booth costs like the length of your event, add-ons, package types, wedding location, and whether your event is in the peak season like May, June, September, and October, or during off-peak season months. Pricing can start anywhere around $100/hour with most photo booths requiring a certain minimum number of hours to book. And, of course, weekends are the most expensive time to book year-round with Saturdays usually running the highest.
Wedding Photo Booth Strips and Prints vs. Digital Images
Like everything, there are pros and cons to opting for physical photo prints versus digital image downloads for your wedding photo booth. Ask yourself, “what is my ultimate goal?” Sentimentally speaking, you may want to be able to look back on all the photos taken at your wedding, whether in a photo album or guest book. If you’re more about the memories or social media sharing than tangible prints, it may be valuable for you to get a download link. Talking with your wedding photo booth vendor can help clarify what is covered with your package and what you will need to add as an extra.
Photo Booth Props & Decor
Photo Booth Balloons
Adding a unique backdrop to your wedding photo booth is a must! We suggest enlisting the design expertise of our fave local balloon garland designers! Pink on the Weekend and EZ Party Time are our go-to’s for any wedding balloon decor.
Wedding Photo Booth Backdrop
Artistic, styled backdrops aren’t just for the altar. Have your rental company design a vignette for your cake table, guest entry, and of course, your photo booth! Some of our favorite trends we’ve seen this year are geometric color block backdrops, neon signs and boxwood hedge walls.
Photo Booth Props
Most photo booths come with their own set of props to use – comically large sunglasses, rubber chickens, vintage era hats, etc. But for a photo op that’s uniquely YOU, we highly suggest creating custom signs as photo booth props. Have your wedding hashtag or faces of you and your significant other printed. Not sure where to start? Enlist the help of your wedding stationer or invitation designer! They likely will have even more customizable ideas to include.
