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.
Here are some people who made their own DIY wedding photobooths:
- Nick & Linda’s homemade photo booth
- “Godzilla’s” photos from their Red Cheese photobooth
- Mrs. Firefly’s photobooth photos

As you can see, they run the gamut — from simple to complex.
The amount of detail that you put into your DIY photobooth is completely up to you!

I like to help people find unique ways to do things in order to save time & money — so I write about “outside the box” ideas that most wouldn’t think of. As a lifelong dog owner, I often share my best tips for living with and training dogs. I worked in Higher Ed over 10 years before switching gears to pursue activities that I’m truly passionate about. I’ve worked at a vet, in a photo lab, and at a zoo — to name a few. I enjoy the outdoors via bicycle, motorcycle, Jeep, or RV.
