Define Your Style

Knowing what you want is often the major part of the process. So, start by defining what it is you want. Turn for advice to friends and family. Google things like “photo booth inspiration”. Pinterest and Google Images will give you plenty to choose from.

Make a mood board, a place to store all your inspirational findings. Having such a place will help you match things up with your wedding theme.

DIY photo booths are an option but in most cases it becomes more expensive to do it yourself. Think about having props, photo booth backdrops, organizing people, taking photos, distributing the photos, etc.

Understand the Options

Knowing what a wedding photobooth rental service entails is everything. Kick off the search by looking for photobooth rentals whose photos you love. Explore your social media feed and ask friends for companies they used at their weddings, birthday party and special events.

Ask your wedding photographer if they offer the service. Searching “photo booth rentals near me” will result in a number of companies you can approach in your area. Browse the portfolios and save any that stand out to you.

When considering options, think about your wedding theme and wedding budget, and whether the rental company can accommodate that. Look for packages being offered and see what matches your vision.

See if the vendor offers printed photos or cloud based delivery. Printed photos will be more expensive, so if you want to save up, consider going with digital photos.

Follow Best Practices

Consider the following best practices to find an inclusive and supportive vendor in your area.

Research and Recommendations

Start by conducting thorough research online to find photo booth vendors in your area. Check websites, online directories, and wedding planning platforms for vendor listings and reviews. Additionally, seek recommendations from friends, family, or LGBTQ+ communities who have previously organized same-sex weddings.

Inclusive Language

Pay attention to the language used on the vendor’s website, social media platforms, and marketing materials. Look for inclusive terms and phrases that indicate they are welcoming and supportive of all couples, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity.

Portfolio Review

Review the vendor’s portfolio or gallery to see if they have experience working with diverse couples. Look for wedding photos that feature same-sex couples to ensure they have experience and expertise in capturing LGBTQ+ weddings.

LGBTQ+ Involvement

Research if the vendor has been involved in LGBTQ+ events or organizations. This could be a positive indication that they are familiar with the specific needs and nuances of same-sex weddings. Look for any mentions of LGBTQ+ inclusive initiatives or partnerships on their website or social media.

Reviews and Testimonials

Read reviews and testimonials from previous clients, specifically focusing on feedback from same-sex couples. These reviews can provide insights into the vendor’s professionalism, responsiveness, and ability to create an inclusive and welcoming environment.

Direct Communication

Contact the photo booth vendor directly and ask them questions about their experience working with same-sex couples. Inquire about their approach to inclusivity and any accommodations they can provide to ensure your wedding day is tailored to your needs.

Meet in Person or Virtually

Schedule a meeting, either in person or via video call, with potential vendors. This allows you to have a personal interaction and assess their attitude, demeanor, and level of comfort in discussing your wedding plans. It’s important to choose a vendor who is genuinely supportive and enthusiastic about your wedding.

Contract Review

Before finalizing any agreements, carefully review the contract. Ensure that it includes inclusive language and specifies the services, pricing, and any additional accommodations discussed. If needed, consult with a legal professional to ensure your rights and interests are protected.

Trust Your Instincts

Ultimately, trust your instincts when choosing a vendor. If you feel uncomfortable or if the vendor seems dismissive or insensitive, it may be a sign to look for an alternative option. Prioritize finding a vendor who values and respects your relationship and wedding vision.

Get Inspiration

Gather inspiration from the following sources to help you communicate your preferences and vision to your photo booth vendor effectively.

Wedding Websites and Blogs

Browse popular wedding websites and blogs that feature real wedding stories, photo galleries, and inspiration boards. Websites like The Knot, WeddingWire, and Love Inc. often showcase diverse weddings, including those of same-sex couples, providing a wealth of ideas and inspiration.

Social Media Platforms

Follow wedding-related accounts and hashtags on social media platforms such as Instagram, Pinterest, and Facebook. Explore hashtags like #LGBTQWeddings, #SameSexWedding, or #LoveIsLove to discover a plethora of images, ideas, and vendor recommendations shared by couples and wedding professionals.

LGBTQ+ Wedding Publications

Look for LGBTQ+ wedding magazines and publications that celebrate and feature real same-sex weddings. These publications often offer valuable insights into unique wedding styles, themes, and vendor recommendations specifically catered to the LGBTQ+ community.

LGBTQ+ Wedding Expos and Events

Attend local LGBTQ+ wedding expos or events where vendors specializing in same-sex weddings are showcased. These events provide an opportunity to meet and connect with vendors who are experienced in working with diverse couples and gain inspiration through interactive displays and presentations.

Personal Networks

Reach out to friends, family members, or acquaintances who have planned same-sex weddings. They can provide firsthand experiences, and recommendations and share their wedding photos and details. This can be a great way to get personalized insights and tips.

Wedding Magazines and Books

Explore general wedding magazines and books that offer a wide range of wedding ideas and inspiration. While they may not specifically focus on same-sex weddings, they can still provide valuable concepts for themes, decor, poses, and other aspects that can be adapted to fit the couple’s vision.

Local Wedding Fairs and Bridal Shows

Attend local wedding fairs or bridal shows in your area. These events combine wedding vendors, including photo booth vendors, under one roof. It allows couples to interact with them and gather information and inspiration from the booths and displays.
