DIY Photo Booth vs. Clear Choice Photo Booth

So you have a wedding coming up and you are looking to save some money, you decide it would be more financially responsible to create a DIY photo booth instead of renting one. Seems like a good idea, right? Not so fast! It’s important to think about what a photo booth from Clear Choice Photo Booth has to offer. It’s not just the photo booth: we can provide a stress free experience for both you and your guests, a scrapbook that you can take home that night and an experience that you will always cherish! And don’t forget that your photo strips get printed out right there, on the spot! So before you decide that saving a few dollars might be worth it, check out the reasons below why it might be best to rent a photo booth!

You have to provide, or make your own probs

vs.

We provide a ton of props for you

Don’t have any crazy, large glasses laying around? No fun mustaches or lips on a stick? How about some fun digital probs for your guests to use? No? What about fun signs to hold up that will make your guests enjoy their photo booth experience even more? Looks like you’re going to be spending extra money (and time if you decide to DIY) on some props for your guests. Whereas, most of our photo booth packages come with our own set of high quality props, including those large glasses, tons of signs, sturdy mustaches and lips on a stick, fun super hero masks, stunner shades, fun digital probs and more.Of course you can add any of your own props onto our prop table, but we supply plenty!

If something malfunctions, you have to fix it

vs.

We are always there to make sure things run smoothly

Oh no! Is that your background blowing away in the wind? Are those storm clouds? Did your camera flash break? Think about how we would have been able to help if you had hired Clear Choice Photo Booth. Although issues for us are very rare, when they do come up all of our attendants are trained to handle issues quickly and efficiently. Rain clouds while we’re set up outside? No problem, we’ll find a place indoors and relocate within minutes.

So you want a scrapbook…?

vs.

We can provide you with a scrapbook by the end of the night

One of the most exciting parts of a photo booth rental is the creation and presentation of a scrapbook at the end of the night. This is a book full of photos and messages from your guests to you. It is one of our most desired products and is included in most of our packages. We’re not really sure how a DIYer could pull this off, so if you’ve done it before please let us know! However, we wanted to share this extra piece of information with you in case you were considering making your own booth. It’s just one more thing to consider!

um, how are we going to get all the pictures?

vs.

We will upload all of your pictures the next business day

If you’re DIYing your photo booth you have a lot to think about… Like how are you going to get the photos? Will you ask people to post them online with a #thebigparty14, hoping everyone has a smart phone and remembers to attach the hashtag? Will you leave out your $500 camera so you have access to them all later? (Dangerous!) Or will you provide disposables, praying the photos come out when you eventually decide to develop them? When you hire Clear Choice Photo Booth, whether or not you’ve ordered a scrapbook or not. All of your photos will be online for you and your guests to access the very next day. With online access, you and your guests will be able to view, print and download as many photos as you want!

Your friends have to take your photo

vs.

We take your photo

Most DIYers do a great job saving money: they only get what they need. Or what they think they need. DIYers are probably not going to outsource a photographer to take photos of guests at their event, leaving either themselves, a guest, or a potential guest to take the photos. If that’s the case, then someone is going to feel left out…When you hire Clear Choice Photo Booth, your rental comes with an attendant who not only sets up our professional photo booth, but mans it so that your guests can have fun taking as many photos of themselves as you want. (Plus your guests will get to watch themselves through our screen inside the booth!)

Unless you have your clunky printer set up, there will be no printed photos

vs.

We give your guests a copy of their photos within 60 seconds of their session

If you are considering a DIY photo booth, have you thought of how you will print photos for your guests to take home? Will you buy a few extra cords to connect your printer to your camera? What happens if you run out of ink? Or paper? This is something to seriously consider if your debating on whether to DIY your photo booth. Clear Choice Photo Booth rentals come with a high quality printer that prints within 60 seconds. Double prints are included in every package, with an a la carte option of prints for everyone. Plus, you get to choose your custom design that shows up on every photo strip, featuring whatever colors and texts you want! You don’t want to deny your guests a fun party favor to take home, do you?

If we have convinced you that a DIY photo booth might not be the way to go, then feel free to contact us if you have any questions or to reserve your event. For more updates and information, you can find us on Instagram and like us on Facebook.
