Should there be a day that you would like to remember forever, it will be your birthday. You prepare for days if not weeks planning this one day, and once it is over you will wish to go back in time in order to relive it all over again. Even if everything does not go precisely as you planned, it will no doubt remain probably the most important day of your life.

Most people employ videographers and photographers to capture their birthday ceremony, but those services usually do not capture the actual magic of the day. The magic is found in your invited guests. They have cherished and supported you all through your lifetime, and now they’ll come together to share and celebrate your happiness. They are equally as significant as the sophisticated cake the table centerpieces, and the flowers.

A wonderful idea that is growing more popular is the birthday photo booth – an exclusive area for guests to have photographs captured as mementos of the event and to complement the bride and groom’s album. You can easily create one on your own, work in conjunction with a photographer or simply rent an entire photo booth for the event.

To do it yourself, you just need to find a secluded area – be creative – One has even been seen in a camper van! If you are able to set aside a small room or corner for this then excellent – if not, then setting up a location or marquee outside will work just fine too. It is highly recommended you make use of a plain background, and ensure it is properly lit and there is no risk of the camera being knocked over.

You can make use of a designated photographer, or perhaps set up a tripod and a camera with a remote or cable release so that your people can take photos of themselves and not having to set a timer. Present props such as hats, empty picture frames, birthday paraphernalia, or blackboards so that guests can draft notes to include in their pictures. Outside is perfect for lighting, but if you will be shooting inside, then just make sure the light is good and the camera settings are properly set for the conditions.

Photo booths apparently capture those significant moments at birthdays – apart from the regular posing and generally after a couple of drinks! Most couples cherish these photos more than their professional ones simply because they genuinely reveal the pleasure and personality of their guests. Don’t forget to sneak in there too – it’s not just for guests!

The choices for silly and fabulous photos are endless. Act dress up, display your favorite pose, or simply flaunt your stunning birthday dress – you will only be able to wear it for that one day after all! Your guests will love posing together to celebrate the day in photographic style.

Birthday Photo booths can be hired and vary in price, depending on their features. Some also enable video messaging and live streaming to an external screen which may be positioned in the room.
