Chicago Wedding Photobooth

Talk about a growing trend. Booking a photo booth for a wedding reception is one of the hottest growing activities in the wedding arena. There are many things that are really cool about this amenity. First of all, it provides a focal point for your guests, something that they can have a lot of fun doing and not expend a lot of energy. And this is great for a lot of your older guests. In fact, that is another amazing thing about a photo booth, it is something that works for all of your guests of all ages. Different pairings can choose to get together and use the props to make goofy or funny pictures. And for the bride and grooms sake, you will have a beautiful memory book to look at when the night is over. Your guests will be able to take a copy of the pictures they took with them. As with many things in life however, you need to make sure that you are going to receive a high quality booth for your reception. The last thing that you need is an eyesore sitting in the middle of your reception venue. So, with that in mind, you need to start searching around the Chicago area and actually visit some of the providers of photo booths. All this means is doing your due diligence. To help you get started, peruse through the guide that we have provided to you below.

So, you need to find some high quality candidates to consider. Start by searching the world wide web. Do a Google search for “photo booths in the Chicago area.” Start clicking on some of the results and figure out which ones look worthy of further consideration. Ask your wedding vendors that you have already hired and ask them for suggestions. And what about those people that you know best. Ask your family, friends and coworkers if they have ever booked a photo booth or ever experienced one that was exceptional. Once you have a working list, call each one and find out if they have a photo booth available for your wedding date. If they say yes, setup a time to interview them and to check out the photo booth in person.

Be ready to ask them pertinent questions. Ask about their experience. You want to make sure that you hire someone who has been doing this for awhile. Ask for at least three references and make sure you check each one out. Find out if they were satisfied. Are they licensed? Are they insured? Find out if they have worked at your venue before? Will they provide an attendant to be with the booth at all times during your reception? We highly recommend this. If something goes wrong with the booth during your reception and that is always a possibility, you need to know there will be someone there who knows how to fix it. What type of equipment do they use? You need to make sure that they use high quality professional grade cameras and lab quality dye sublimation photo printers in their booths. One thing you will want make sure that they do not use is a web cam or an ink jet printer. Have them show you the packages that they offer. Have the staff give you a tour of the facilities so that you can see the level of quality of the booth that would be at your wedding. Again, pay attention to how it looks inside and outside. Have them run some sample tests with the booth. After you have exhausted your list, you should be ready to make your final choice. We only have one last piece of advice, smile and have fun.
