How a Classic Photo Booth Can Add Simplicity & Style to Your Next Event

1. Keep it Simple Silly (KISS)

The Classic Photo Booth is quite simple to use:
A. Grab your bestie and some props.
B. Enter the booth.
C. Follow the touchscreen options and instructions and remember to smile big for the camera.
D. Step outside, and before you can say “This is really fun”, your photo-strips are ready to go.

About a decade ago there was a massive resurgence in the popularity of the Classic Photo Booth in Australia & New Zealand. They quickly became a “must-have” for corporate events, weddings, and other special events. But before too long, photo booth manufacturers were looking to technology in an effort to transform the classic photo booth into something more. Fast forward to 2021 and we’ve seen a huge shift towards something that hardly resembles a photo booth at all. Don’t get me wrong… I also have an iPad-based Selfie Station. It’s so Scandinavian that it looks like it belongs in an IKEA catalogue. It has its benefits, but it ain’t no photo booth.

2. Real Photo Strips Your Guests Can Take Home.

One of the interesting things about the evolution of the “Photo booth” is that many service providers are now doing away with the actual photo strips. It’s been a growing trend since Social Sharing came along. The pandemic has played a role in this shift as well. At the time of writing (2021), there is a global shortage of DNP print media used by many photo booth operators. Being able to share your images digitally from the photo booth is a great add-on, but it shouldn’t replace the actual photo strips.

3. Amazing Memories in an Amazing Photo Album.

Let’s say you’re getting married and you’ve decided to hire a photo booth. One of the great things about a Classic Photo Booth and having the photo strips printed is the fact that you have access to the photo album as you leave the reception. Sometimes couples fail to realise that the whole reception can whiz by you like a speeding bullet. When you consider all the formalities of the reception along with so many family members & old friends to catch up with. It’s hard to experience it all. Just imagine looking through an album of hilarious images and hand-written messages the next morning over breakfast with your new partner.
