photo booth Ryan Alicia 500x332 DIY Photo Booth Tutorial

Wedding trends come and go, but I still can’t get enough of photo booths. Here’s how I created a fun one for my brother’s engagement party.

Buy some daggy framed pictures from your local op shop (look for ones with a nice moulded shape).

Remove the canvases. Lay frame in a cardboard box or on top of newspaper and spray on a couple of coats of your chosen colour.

For the backdrop we bought some inexpensive fabric (polka dots, naturally). I used a backdrop frame (hired from Mary & Gabrielle Events in Adelaide) but you may have a suitable structure such as a wall or pergola to attach it to. Place a camera onto a tripod, attach a remote and have someone stand in front of it so you can get the height and framing right, then you’re all set!

You’re sure to get some really great shots of your friends and family.

Ms Gingham says: Truly a simple process! With a little imagination you can use this concept for all sorts of events … I’m thinking kid’s (big and small) birthday parties for a start!
