Renting a Photo Booth in New Orleans

New Orleans is a booming city. People here work hard and party harder. Whether it's a celebration of some kind or a corporate party, one way or another people are always ready to roll. Because the party mood in the Crescent City never ends, it becomes a little difficult for the event organizers to add something new to each party. Maybe that is the reason New Orleans is the first city to accept any new concept. Photo booth rental is one of the concepts which has been accepted with open arms. However, if you are going for a Photo Booth Rental in New Orleans, here are some tip to consider:

Begin with the Cocktail Hour

Oh, yeah, it is important because the fun usually starts with the cocktail hour. At the cocktail hour, people explore their curiosity and begin their search for something different to experience. If you start the photo booth late, people’s attention might drift from the photo booth to the dance floor. The idea is to help them experience maximum entertainment while they are still in party mode .

Keep it Close

The placement of the photo booth is important. The event organizers should make sure to place the photo booth close to the spot where the action is taking place. This way people would just step in the photo booth for a group photo instead of walking down the hall and take the second left...

Schedule your time in the Photo Booth

It might sound strange but, many bride and groom forget to get inside the booth because of the hectic wedding ceremony schedule. To avoid missing the fun, you may have to plan for your coordinator to  escort you to the booth. You may have it scheduled in with your photographer to have them take photos of you in the booth. This way you would not forget to make a visit to the photo booth rental.

Pick up the Right Photo Album

Well, people might argue on this, but, buying a simple black album for your wedding photo booth strips would be a great idea. The photo strips along with glittery gel pens for comment would add both style and art to the album.

Customize the Photo Strips

Those, who are planning to add photo strips to the wedding album, can customize them to match your wedding decorations and bridal colors. You can also add special messages, quotes or hash tags to make the album a little more memorable.

Tailor the Photos

Yes, the photographers in New Orleans would encourage you to do this and make a stunning wedding album. Color photos are a fantastic addition to a wedding album. But, black and white have its own appeal and you need to explore all of the options that are available. For a retro touch which is both elegant and romantic, opt for black and white photos. We can have the photo booth setup for your guests to be able to select which one they prefer also.

Take it to Another Level

You see, the idea is to do something unique. Instead of going for the normal 2" x 6" photo strips, you can opt for 4” x 6” photo frames. This would look great in the wedding album and your friends and family may frame and display it.

Arrange for a Projector

Usually, the photo booth rentals create a CD of the wedding photos and hand it over to the bride and groom. For extra fun effect, you can arrange for a projector where you can show the photos like a movie for the benefit of the guest. During the reception, this would add a sense of fun and encourage other guests to join in.

Create Duplicates

It is a great idea to send out with thank you notes to the guests later on. Some may have lost their copies during the night  and you can make the notes special by adding their photo taken in the wedding booth with the note. It would surely make your guests happy and to remember the fun time they had.

Choose with Care

In a city like New Orleans, you have several photo booth rentals. However, this wide variety of choices would not make your selection easy. If anything, you are going to be confused. To make the right choice, you must ask the companies to send you samples of photos their booth would produce. Also, you must ask for the photo of the booth which would be placed at the ceremony. It is the best way to make the right decision.

Go Easy with the Props

Yes, some people do tend to go overboard with the props. It might lead to thousands of useless photo strips. Instead, go light and allow the real personalities of your guests to come out.

Because photo booth rentals are popular among party organizers, it is important to book early. This is a great way to add a special feature to the party that you are throwing.

You made a good point to "create duplicates" of photos when renting a photo booth. Some of the guests may want to have their own copy or may have misplaces their own, so it's always good to have a back-up ready. This way, you can always have the "original" re-printed just in case they request for multiple copies. If I were to rent a photo booth for an event, I would definitely make sure to ask for a duplicate copy of all shots taken. Thanks.
