Have you considered including a photo booth in your Thailand wedding reception? Photo booths are no longer a thing of the past, and are fast-becoming a much-loved addition to wedding receptions everywhere in the world. Even if you’ve already hired a professional photographer to cover your wedding, a photo booth is an exciting, interactive way for your guests to contribute to making your celebration even more memorable.

1. Photo print strips will make excellent party favors for your guests.

Even though you may already provide wedding souvenirs and thank-you gifts to your guests, the photos they’ve taken in your photo booth become more personal mementos that they will treasure, because these printed photos are tangible remembrances of their presence at your wedding day. Not only will your guests post their printed photo strips on their social media accounts, they will also treasure them and have them displayed or framed.

2. Our photo booth provides priceless memories  It’s pure fun for everyone.

Photo booths are excellent venues to unleash everyone’s inner wacky personality, and through the costumes and props made available in some photo booth rentals, they can create these fun and crazy photographs that your professional event photographer won’t be able to produce or capture. Photo booths are fun, interactive activities that your guests can engage in during your wedding reception, and gives your guests something to do and look forward to!

3.  Friendly and professional staff members are well versed in proper wedding etiquette and will continuously provide support to your guests during your event.  

The photo booth staff will help your guests with props, operating the machine, and finding their best pose for the camera. So there’s no need to worry that your guests might feel confused when in the photo booth, because there will always be  someone assisting them and making sure everyone gets to have their own photo booth photo taken and printed smoothly!

4.  You can use the prints to create an album for your coffee table, allowing you to enjoy cherished memories for years to come.

Thailand photo booth rental companies can compile all the photo booth photos taken by your guests and create a coffee table book or album that will remind you of all the lovely faces that were present during your special day. How heartwarming is that?

5.  The photo strips can be made available on Facebook or Instagram the day after the event.

After the wedding celebrations are over and everyone has gone home, that doesn’t mean that the fun times are completely forgotten right away. That wedding celebration high and fun times during your special day can be relived and instantly shared to the rest of your friends and family (and their friends and families as well) through sharing the photos in their social media accounts!

The Ten Commandments of Wedding Photography– FOR BRIDES!

The Ten Commandments of Wedding Photography– FOR BRIDES!

Congratulations!

Now that you have that ring on your finger, it’s time to plan out the actual wedding. One of the essentials you’ll need on your special day is a good wedding photographer. There are lots of great nuptial shutterbugs out there who can give you the most amazing wedding photo album of your life, but they can’t do the job all by themselves– you have to partake in it as well. And by “partake,” I mean participate and cooperate. For them to produce wonderful shots and for you to have unforgettable souvenirs for keeps, you and your photographer(s) must work together.

You may be wondering… how?

 

 

Here are the 10 commandments of wedding photography that all brides should adhere to, based on award-winning photographer Jason Lanier’s own tips:

  1. Thou shall get in shape
    – if your the groom or the bride. If weight’s an issue for you, perhaps dieting before your wedding day might make you more happy but if it is not an issue for you don’t let anyone pressure you into it.
  1. Thou shall have great evenly tanned skin and clean teeth
    – Avoid tan lines can ruin your wedding photos and whitened teeth can add a special brilliance to all your wedding photos.
  1. Thou shall get the most out of your wedding suppliers
    – Coordination between your DJ, wedding planner, caterer, photographer and videographer makes for the best wedding. Sometimes is best to find people that are used to working together, or even hire a wedding planer to get he most out of them..
  1. Thou shall wear a dress that suits you
    – Have your eye on that elegant wedding dress that you can hardly put on? Ignore that! Pick a dress that flatters you and lovingly flatters your beautiful body shape.
  1. Thou shall pick an amazing venue
    – As much as possible, within your budget. Choose a place where there’s great lighting and beautiful bridal suite. That does not mean the most expensive but the one that suits your wedding style.
  1. Thou shall choose photo quality over quantity
    – When it comes to wedding photos, quality always outweighs quantity. Just think: do you want 2,000 pieces of hideous pictures or 200 pieces of artistically-shot ones?
  1. Thou shall master time management
    – Know when you’ll need your photographer(s). Don’t let them shoot everything, not even your wildest disco moments at the reception. Chances are, you won’t need those images.
  1. Thou shall allot time for shoots
    – Schedule group shots, couple shots, and other important poses ahead of time so they won’t interfere with the program proper.
    – Weddings are like a military operation if thing do not go on schedule something will suffer because of it.
  2. Thou shall respect your photographer(s) and other suppliers.
    – Brides, this is very important: never let your photographer(s) and people you hired for your wedding starve to death. Make sure that they get feed and if you trusted them enough to hire them let them do their job. Don’t try to micro manage them.
  1. Thou shall not transform into a bridezilla
    – This is almost acceptable in the west now for some brides to act like they are low class spoilt children and considered cute when they through temper tantrum , but it’s a big no-no– especially on your wedding day. Relax, keep your cool, and just enjoy every bit of your day. Remember: a bridezilla can greatly affect the whole wedding, and this includes your relationship with the photographer(s) and long term friends. You wouldn’t want to show your stress in your wedding photos, do you?

 

Take these commandments in mind (and heart!) and faithfully follow them on your wedding day, because sometimes, the key to your dream wedding’s success lies in your own hands.
