This Modern Love: Photo Booth Fun!

Photo booths are the best thing to happen to wedding receptions since the dance floor.  Nothing gets guests more in the mood to be silly than a photo booth (accompanied by awesome props, of course). In particular, I’m a huge fan of the ones that actually print out the photos—we decided to nix traditional favors (we didn’t want to give people useless tchotchkes; plus, it was another way to save some money) in “favor” of having guests take their printed photos home as a keepsake.

We rented the photo booth through DJ Yo-C, so luckily he was able to provide us with a CD of all the images captured throughout the night. And let me tell you, our guests took the silliness and fun factor to a whole new level! Apparently people’s inhibitions seriously go out the window when it comes to a photo booth. You could imagine my shock when after the wedding, I popped in the CD to look through the photos and saw some guests doing semi-naughty things in there! Those photos will obviously NOT be posted here to protect said parties…but it was absolutely HILARIOUS.

Here are some less scandalous examples of how much our guests enjoyed the photo booth. To jazz up the background (which came plain white), I bought a damask photo backdrop from Party City. I love the way it looks and it was SO cheap (less than $5)!!




Everyone was loving their props!


This is actually me and my seven bridesmaids trying to squeeze into the booth.


Our photographers luckily caught this moment from the outside!

And as the night went on, the photos got sillier and sillier.

Even Mr. M’s family got in on the fun!

And of course, Mr. M and I had to show the photo booth some love. :)




Another great shot from our photos

But the photo that really takes the cake is my dad using a photo booth for the first time. It was so amazing that I had to turn it into the animated GIF below.


Sipping his ginger ale like a BOSS

I love the fact that I have all these blackmail photos—it’s one thing to have your professional pictures, but another thing to have a CD full of your guests being extra ridiculous. :)

Next up, the party continues to have a life of its own, so we decide to sneak off to the side to cut the cake.

    Your photo booth pictures are EXACTLY why I’m doing a photo booth. I hope they never go out of style – too much fun!

    The overwhelming thing I’ve learned from your recaps is that your dad is awesome. I think I’d like to borrow him for my wedding!
