Our DIY Photobooth

11 May

We (well, I) really like the idea of having a photobooth at our reception. I looked into renting one, for about 30 seconds. I cannot stomach the thought of spending $2,000 to have someone haul in a fun prop for 2 hours.

My sister has friends in art school, one of whom is a photographer. We’ve contracted her work for 2 hours for a low fee. We’ll provide the backdrop and props, she’ll provide the photos. even if they aren’t smashing, how can you complain at a pricetag of less than $150?

Here’s what we’ve got so far:

Of course we’ll have more props (to be shared in a future post). Here’s hoping our guests enjoy and take advantage of it!

Here are just a few of the photos we got out of the photobooth.

p.s. if anyone wants the name of a photography student who might be willing to help out with your DIY photobooth, and you live in Minneapolis or Saint Paul, drop me an e-mail.

    I think it’s great you still manage to do a photobooth thing w/o paying the outrageous price of renting one!
