Now you have to entertain the guests in a more dynamic way, the joke is always to innovate!

The most important thing is to preserve those beautiful memories. And what better than to do it through a photograph. Therefore, I will give you some original ideas to make a personalized Photo Booth, in the most economical and fun way.

1. Photo Backgrounds

It is not necessary that you pay large amounts of money to rent the typical photo booth for a few hours, you only need some elements that go according to the theme of your event and the collaboration of your guests.

You need to designate a space to create a stage or background. Of course, everything must go according to your event, be it outdoors or indoors, a wedding or a children's party. For example, if your party is vintage you could add some frames, some flowers and old furniture. Go for subdued, white colors.

If it is very Mexican, you can opt for papier-mâché backgrounds with colors such as green, yellow or Mexican pink.

2. Fun Accessories

These are very important, as they will create a much more fun environment in the portrait. They can be wigs, giant glasses, guitars or hats.

Don't forget to have props or printables, for example mustaches, dolls, or posters and signs with funny captions. Just make a pattern on the computer and print enough for your friends.

You can also add cardboard frames decorated by yourself.

Ideally, you should put all these accessories on a table so that your friends can choose what to use for the photo. The more comfortable they feel, the photos will be spectacular.

3. Dress Up Your Guests

Another super original idea is to ask your guests to dress up in a particular theme. They don't have to invest a lot in it. In fact, they can choose a special color or a minimum of some garment in common and this will do that. This will make your party more meaningful and special.

4. Lighting

The place destined for the Photo Booth must have a very good lighting, either indoors or outdoors.

You will also require a photographer, you can invite that friend that we all have and who likes to take photos.

5. A Little Latino

6. The Most Important!

What should not be missing for any reason should be the smiles, funny poses of your guests and, why not, that they make a fool of themselves. No long faces, that would ruin the photo series. To do this, you must create the perfect environment so that they feel part of the event and let the fun flow.

Gabriel García Márquez wrote: “Life is not what one lived, but what one remembers, and how one remembers it to tell it”, that is why I like to remember and tell stories, my stories and the stories of which I am part in this society. The best way I found to tell them was through journalism, not only as a professional purpose, but with the intention of living, as my Colombian colleague points out. I have developed as a reporter, writer and editor in print and digital media. I also have experience in Public Relations. What I enjoy the most is a cup of coffee in the morning, traveling, meeting people and dreaming. I live disheveled.
