Helpful Tips

When we were hit with the pandemic the sense of togetherness was lost. But as the world has been getting back to “normal,” we are seeing more and more of our photo booths being rented for a variety of different events. From weddings to birthdays to corporate events, People pose for photos in a photo booth a photo booth rental puts the “fun” in our “fundamental” right to have a good time. Therefore, here are the Top 8 Reasons Your Event Needs a Photo Booth Rental in 2024.

Our photo booths are Open-Air Booths, which means you are not constrained by a small, tight booth. With an open-air booth, you can fit a larger group of people, typically 8-12 people, in your shots and the pace is quicker than a smaller booth. Three16 Photography’s photo booths are equipped with professional-grade camera equipment and lighting.


#1 – No Effort on Your Part

With the exception of selecting a background theme, making the payment, and telling us where to set up, that’s about all you have to do as we will handle the rest. We handle the setup and takedown, supplying the props, we are sure to name the event/wedding to appear on prints and we supply an operator that not only does the setup and takedown, but is there to help guide your guests, give them their prints, and encourage to have fun with the photo booth.

#2 – They make for Great Guest Gifts

Everybody likes a keepsake or something they can physically take home with them. And at weddings, banquets of any kind, or corporate events, it’s no different. I have seen so many variations of gifts that have been placed on dinner tables from personalized matchbooks (yes, they still do them), to almond candies (and a dental bill), smores, small picture frames, inscribed glasses or bottle openers, the list goes on. But taking home a strip of photos from a photo booth has a much more personal touch, because, well, it’s you with your family and/or friends! Maybe a photo with a family member you don’t stay in contact with, a long-lost friend, your kids, or just a group of crazy friends trying to have a goofy time. These are memories you cherish. I attended a high school team banquet with my daughter, and we took photos together via the photo booth. Just the other day I came across them and it brought a real sense of happiness of such a great time we were having at that time. She is now off and married now, but she still displays the photos of us on her vanity in her room. So, photo booth mementos can truly be memory makers.

#3 – Break the Ice and Get the Party Started

Ever been to a wedding reception where you really don’t know anyone? Yeah, me too. Then you get seated at a table, again, not knowing anyone. But you do have the couple in common, so you strike up a conversation and share a few laughs at the couple’s expense. With a photo booth rental, you can have a little fun smiling, grabbing props with someone you know, or perhaps, with the newfound friends at your table. The booth allows everyone to squeeze in and be goofy together. Or perhaps a high school reunion, you might find yourself dragged into a group picture you never thought you would be posing with, but you know, what? It’s fun. And that can be the start of a dialog, break the ice if you will. The same goes at a company function with your co-workers or those from another department, or should we dare say it… your bosses!

#4 – They’re Entertaining

Just like with breaking the ice, posing in a photo booth is a lot of fun. You have people you know, or don’t know, squeezing together with silly props and lots of funny faces being made. If nothing else, that moment in time, there was a bond. Honestly, how many of you can say that after taking a photo in a photo booth walked away upset? Pretty low if any at all. Smile did ya? Laugh maybe? Deep down inside, it made you feel good.

#5 – Great Props

I have seen some photo booth companies where the props are just plain. But many have some really great ones. Want to look like Flava Flave? Grab the big chain or clock. A pirate? Do it. Silly sayings? Yep, those work. Funny hats like a chicken on your head are always a hit. But perhaps one of the more popular props… the stuffed poop emoji. How many of you held one in a photo and squeezed it thinking it represented chocolate pudding? I know you did.

#6 – You Don’t Have to be a Kid

One of the more popular reasons to do a photo booth rental in 2024 is not only is it suitable for people of all ages, but it also allows your inner child to come out. Even those of you who haven’t smiled in years will often find yourself all caught up in it once you‘re involved. After all, it is good clean fun.

Your kids may actually see you in a way they haven’t before or the nostalgia of it all when posing with childhood friends. If nothing else, allow these moments to set aside adulting, and just enjoy it. Speaking of nostalgia, for us old fogeys, remember when you were a kid, we went into a booth and closed the curtain for photos may be at the fair or your local K-Mart? It was barely enough room for two people much less three. And now booths are “open-air” and can accommodate many more friends.

#7 – Instant Babysitter

If you attend any kind of gathering that allows kids, you know that they have the need to be entertained. Other than dancing, what else is there for them to do at a wedding reception or any other event? Bring a toy? Your young teenager is not going to bring a toy. Of course, these days of handheld video games or just their cell phone might keep them entertained. But how often do you see kids dressing up in props and having their photos taken? What? No selfie? It’s like the old days when they interacted with, shall I say it… other people!

#8 – A Great Way to Extend Your Brand

If you are using a photo booth rental for a sales rally, a company party, or a conference with other companies attending. Each photo can have your company logo, trademark saying, your company website, colors, etc, on it and when they take their keepsake home with them, your brand goes with them. A great investment in your company’s marketing strategy indeed. Not only a great memory but every time they look at their photo, your logo is on their face.
