A true photo booth experience beats a guy with a camera every time. But what is it that makes it a true photo booth experience? There are a few features you must have in order for it to be the real deal. First, instant printing is a must. The immediate gratification of being able to walk away with your photo strips is an essential part of the photo booth experience. Secondly, the on screen preview is the part of the photo taking process that gets the most laughs. After a picture is snapped, a proper photo booth will display the picture, usually to a great response. Lastly, automation. There is a huge difference between the automated experience of a photo booth vs. a photographer holding a camera and telling everyone to "say cheese!" Just like great art is sometimes born from the limitations of a medium, the tic toc of the photo booth's timer drives people's creativity. If you're shopping around to rent a photo booth for a party, wedding, corporate event or special occasion, make sure the photo booth experience you're getting is the real deal.
