For many people, the most important day of their lives can also be a day they are too busy to appreciate or enjoy. Brides, grooms, and wedding planners are constantly pressured to make this special event beautiful, fun, and memorable for all who attend. Often times, hiring another vendor is considered an added stress. Photo booth companies, however, are different and could actually be helpful to your wedding endeavors as they capture moments that are easy to miss. Here are three reasons you should considering hiring a photo booth company for your wedding.
1. Fun Photos Of Guests
A photographer is going capture pictures of guests sitting, dancing, eating, and maybe even hiding. The problem with staged photos is not all people find them enjoyable. While beautiful, they often only capture staged smiles and fun of the guests that ACTUALLY want their photo taken by another person.
A photo booth, on the other hand, is a no stress, no rules, all fun photo system that can be controlled by the guests themselves. This will give you the chance to get photos of all guests (young and old) in their natural and relaxed (sometimes crazy) element. You'll be able to remember the fun side of the party with these photos and see everyone's personalities shine as they pose with family, friends, and props!
2. Guest Book Alternative
Pinterest is full of fun ideas for guests books, like this one, or this cool set up! This chalk board/photo idea usually requires a person running around with a camera and a chalk board, and it's not guaranteed that everyone will end up being photographed.
Why not have a Photo Booth at the entrance to the ceremony or reception and have guests complete this before finding their seat? Brides and grooms will end up with plenty of photos to make their guest book unique, and everyone who comes through the wedding photo booth will receive their own fun print to take home. It's a win win!
3. GIF Experience
Imagine offering your guests something unique, fun, and interactive. GIF experiences liven up any photo experience by taking three or four photos and putting them into a looped video. Guests will be able to access their GIF online and share it with all of their friends and family to commemorate the fun they had at your wedding!

The easiest 5 stars I've ever given out to date. Would hire again, recommend, or brag about in a heartbeat.
This was for my wedding. I was annoyingly picky (euphemism) to the point where I looked through every possible vendor's portfolio/website and then judged them on their email response time, grammar, and complimentary add-on services. Spending money was a definite issue when I didn't think the service was worth the cost.
Apparently, pigs have been flying since SnapBar's inception.
SnapBar well exceeded my expectations and was perfect in every way imaginable. I received high-caliber customer service, high-quality pictures, proofs with my event logo, choice of backdrop, and an energetic and friendly booth attendant. Moreover, SnapBar uses the latest tech and has high standards in user experience. Deliciously clean website, invoices, and streamlined photo delivery.
Josiah, the SnapBar attendant, managed to get even the most conservative of our family into the booth! Also, shout-out to Carter, the Customer Happiness Director, who was prompt and professional in all of our interactions.
SnapBar is seriously the best photobooth in all of the Puget Sound area and beyond. I'd buy stock if they scaled and went public. Thanks so very much for the memories!

We used The SnapBar at our wedding reception on 9/17/16 and they were THE BEST!
Our photo booth attendant, Joe, was helpful and engaging without ever being intrusive - so he made it really easy for people to be comfortable and relaxed but made sure that the pictures were turning out great. We got several comments right away from guests about how good the quality of the photos was, and people loved having a photo strip to take away with them as a keepsake. Not to mention the full online album with great quality photos for us to keep. I would highly recommend The SnapBar to anyone who is considering using a photo booth. It was well worth every penny.
