I am one of those people that HATES being in photographs, but secretly loves looking back on everybody's photos from a celebration. I always want to be fully emerged in the moment and not focusing on smiling pretty. Yet after all is said and done I really love to reminisce about how much fun we had.
When planning a photo booth for a party there are just a few key things you need to make it perfect. One: Come up with a clever #hashtag for your guest to tag the photos on Instagram. This way you know everybody can share in the fun. Two: It is great to have a central spot set up for people to take fun posed photos. It doesn't have to be anything to crazy just hang a backdrop as simple as a white sheet or a table cloth. Three: Go to the dollar store and buy a bunch of fun props to dress up in. You can never go wrong with some oversized glasses, crowns, and bow ties like you see above. Also check out what you have in your home! You would be surprised the random things you can pull together that will make for some hilarious photos. If you have extra time while planning check out Etsy for some fun props.

Have you guys ever done an easy DIY photo booth? I am really starting to warm up to photos so I will be sure to incorporate this into my next gathering.
