Why hiring a photobooth can be better than hiring a photographer

You’re deep into planning every detail of your event and now it’s time to think about photography. You want to have mementos from the event to enjoy long after the event is over, to help you remember who was there and what they looked like in that moment in time. Photographs can capture an event like nothing else.

You definitely want some kind of photography, but there are so many choices.

The problems when hiring a photographer

A professional photographer is the default choice for many, and it does have the most flexibility since you can negotiate almost every detail of what will be photographed and how and when.

But this flexibility and coverage costs a premium and can be time consuming to plan. You need to find the photographer first, and that’s not as simple as you might think. Ideally, you should find a photographer who you connect with and whose style suits the feel of your event. There also needs to be a beautiful portfolio of past event photographs and good reviews and recommendations for reassurance, but there’s still always a chance you won’t get what you were looking for in the end.

Then, when you do find the right person, they need to be available for your event, otherwise you have to start all over.

Then, once you’ve chosen the right photographer, the number of options for each package and add-ons can be dizzying – between choosing the amount of time, the number of locations, the number of photographers and assistants, the number of images, the number of prints, photo albums, online galleries, etc., etc. And the final cost of all of thisstill needs to fit your budget.Deciding on and planning for this one detail of the event can be exhausting all by itself.

The benefits of photobooth hire

An alternative option that more and more people are choosing is the photo booth. It’s much simpler – there are far fewer choices to make, and much less room for error.
