Local Bridal Guide: 8 Philly-Area Photo Booths That’ll Keep Your Wedding Guests Entertained All Night Long
We can’t say enough good things about having a photo booth at your wedding: They’re an interactive way to keep guests entertained during the party and the photos double as a silly little favor that’ll forever remind them (and you!) of your Big Day. It’s a win-win for everybody.
Since the whole photo booth trend caught on in Philly a few years ago, the number of photo booth services in the area has skyrocketed. There are quite a few companies to choose from now, each one offering a unique take on the photo booth experience.
Here we rounded up eight options for you to look into if you’re considering a photo booth for your wedding.
Where: 651 Park Avenue, King of Prussia
What: So CinemaCake’s Slow Mo Cinema Booth is not your typical photo booth—we first told you about this awesome toy when they launched it in Philly last year—but it’s such an awesome take on the photo booth that it’s worth considering for your wedding reception. This interactive experience lets your guests engage in silly performances (like tossing a drink in the air or throwing confetti) which are then caught on camera and played back, in slow-motion, on the booth’s built-in monitor. Everyone will get a URL where they can watch the video later on, and you can opt to have photos of the performances printed as well.
Cut + Paste
Where: 318 Bainbridge Street, Queen Village
What: Cut + Paste is the brainchild of Christina Overbagh and James Shin, two creative minds who set out to create a unique photo booth experience that you’re guests would never forget. Funky backdrops and props, confetti, custom balloons and photo strip envelopes are just a few of the special touches this crew can bring to your party. Their social media kiosk—which allows your guests to immediately share their photos through email, Instagram, Facebook or Twitter—is also worth asking about.
The iLOVE Team
Where: Serves the Greater Philadelphia and Tri-State areas
What: The iLOVE Team’s mission is to make the photo booth experience affordable and accessible to all customers, so they’ll design a custom package that suits the your party size and budget. You’ll have your choice of an enclosed or open-air photo booth, and all packages come with multiple backdrop options for you to pick from (they’ll even print a custom step-and-repeat banner for your event). Props, on-site printing and an online gallery are always included, too.
Where: 108 Green Lane, Manayunk
What: JPG’s open-air photo booth has been a hit with couples for years now (you’ll see a few Philly Mag staffers testing it out at our photo director’s wedding in 2012 in the photo above!). Book them for your Big Day and you’ll get unlimited use of the booth, tons of fun props and a friendly JPG team member who will coordinate the whole process.
Where: Serves the Greater Philadelphia area
What: Deanna and Erik Fike are the husband and wife team behind this graphic design and photography studio, where custom invitations and photo booth services are the specialty. When you book one of Lovebirds’s photo booth packages, they’ll make sure everything runs smoothly from start to finish: A professional photographer and an assistant will be on-site to capture your entire event, and afterwards your guests will take home 4×6 copies of their photos and you’ll receive a hi-res DVD of every image taken. They’ll bring along a background of your choice and a box full of props, too.
The Majestic Photobooth Company
What: If an old-school, vintage photo booth is what you’re searching for, Majestic has you covered: Their 1950’s and 60’s-inspired booths will add an antique touch to your Big Day. Your guests will love the classic film strips (that print out in just 10 seconds!) which you can customize with a monogram or logo to commemorate your day. Your photo booth specialist, who will be on hand during your party to oversee it all, can even help coordinate an album of your guests’s photos and well wishes.
Where: Northern Liberties
What: Poseybooth’s open-air photo booth makes taking large group photos a breeze and the wireless clicker lets your guests control when and how many pictures are taken. The packages here are extremely flexible too, so you can mix and match their services to fit the needs of your party. Opt for classic on-site printing, or choose to go digital and simply have all of the shots available for your guest to view online.
Where: 51 North 3rd Street, #229, Old City
What: ShutterBooth has been a popular addition to parties all around town, and the company’s simple, customizable packages make it a perfect fit for your Big Day. Both a traditional closed photo booth and an open one are available here, plus tons of extra add-ons (props, custom logos, scrapbooks) to complete the experience.
