It is important to keep lighting in mind around your photo booth. There are lots of affordable string lights, bistro lights or lanterns you can purchase. Also be sure if you have lights in the background, that you place lights in front of the camera as well, about eye level so the guests don’t appear too dark in the photos.

4. Camera

There a few different options regarding how to take the pictures at the photo booth. If you have a camera and tripod, you can station a designated “photographer” at the photo booth throughout the evening to take the pictures. You could then email out all the photos that were saved on the memory card. You can provide polaroid’s or even make it a selfie station so guests can go home with their own pictures.
