If the price of renting a photo booth makes you cringe, then you may want to try your hand at making your own photobooth.
In the simplest sense, all you really need is a fun backdrop where your guests can stop by and get playful portraits snapped by a photographer.

I'm a Photographer who's been documenting every moment of my life in pictures… for decades! I currently have 171,285 photos saved in 6,034 albums online (backed up in 3 different locations). Pet Photography and Travel Photography are my favorites — I'm always taking pictures of our dogs at home and of us on our multi-day motorcycle trips. When I'm not snapping photos, you can find me at the corner of Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites).
