To get a photo booth or to not get a photo booth?


Wondering if you should get a photo booth for your next event? Spoiler alert: we reckon you should 😜 To be fair, we’ve got plenty of reasons to back up that statement. If you think the photo booth idea has been ‘done’ the below point should help remind you how awesome they are.

There are plenty of things that have been ‘done’ before at weddings and events. We see them as traditions rather than what’s already been done. For example, phone cameras are everywhere yet you won’t see a wedding without a professional photographer. Dessert is often served at a wedding yet it’s rare there will be a wedding without a cake.

Photo booths have reached that cult status! Let’s rewind to 2007 when In the Booth’s first photo booth was in the planning stages. No one knew what a photo booth was let alone understood what it meant to have one at an event! Fast forward to 2024 and everyone understands what a photo booth is. Guests no longer have to be introduced to the concept or told how to use a touch screen. In the Booth is celebrating our fifteenth birthday this year and it’s incredible to think we had to explain to customers what it meant to get a photo booth for their event! So let’s get down to it! Here’s our top reasons why you should absolutely get a photo booth at your wedding, party or corporate event.


This one you expected! You can never have enough photos. As opposed to the awkward photographer roaming the room, the booths draws guests in. The ‘PHOTOBOOTH’ sign on all our booths literally tells guests in one word the fun that’s to come. Guests are attracted to the booth like moths to a flame.

This ties with our first point of photos. You cannot beat the entertainment the booth offers your guests. Photos almost become a by-product of the fun they have! Event entertainment needs to be inherently simple in design. If you’ve got a booth and dancing, your guests will have the best.night.ever.
