DIY Photo Booth!

While discussing a FBF wedding with one bride recently I asked about her photo booth.  I LOVE photo booths, but they can get pricy.  She had a wedding for less than $5,000, so I was sure she had gotten a great deal.  And I was right!  She shared her secret with me, and it’s called Sparkbooth.com  http://sparkbooth.com!

All you need is a computer.  To download the program is $60.00.  You can then opt to have it set up to a printer and print on site.  Or you can have it stored online to print later.  You can even have it set up to upload all the fun to Facebook!

There are a variety of ways you can personalize your booth.  For a backdrop you can use a sheet to cut costs.  If you or a friend is handy with wood-work you can have a large board mounted, painted and styled to match your theme.  Here is a great step-by-step tutorial on how to do this http://ruffledblog.com/diy-photobooth-vintage-wallpaper-frame-wall-backdrop/

Make sure that you place it in an area that is well lit.  You will be doing this on the computer, so the flash will be very limited and you don’t want your photos too dark!

Now all you need to do is add a few fun props!  Have fun and don’t forget to SMILE!
