Featured Wedding Vendor: Photo Booth Rentals of Winnipeg
If you are looking for a really unique element to add to your wedding that your guests will love, consider renting a photo booth. Here in Winnipeg, there is one company to go to: Photo Booth Rentals of Winnipeg. I met owner Robert Eaton this afternoon, and I thought I'd share a bit of what I learned with you:
Robert is the third generation in his family to run the photo booth business - it has been around since the 1960's. He carries vintage machines and newer machines including a digital photo pavilion. Robert says he loves bringing his photo booths to weddings and it's easy to believe - his eyes light up when he talks about his company and he's full of stories about the many weddings he has set up photo booths at.
The way it works is the photo booth or photo pavilion gets set up for a set number of hours, and guests have unlimited photos in the booth. As the high quality photos are printed one strip is placed in a scrapbook which the guests sign, and the other strip goes home with the guest. The bride and groom end up with a really neat scrapbook of photos from their wedding guests, and guests get to have some fun photos of themselves to take home. Everyone is happy!
I think it would be so cool to have a photo booth at a wedding, and what I would do is create a background that matches the wedding theme, and provide guests with props. For example, a vintage themed wedding could have a basket of old hats and glasses for guests to wear in the photos. Also, these photos could replace favours as a take-home item. You can contact Photo Booth Rentals of Winnipeg here.
