plan a modern wedding in the middle of the country

Stop what you’re doing right now and go here and scroll down a bit (I’ll wait).

This couple made their own standing photobooth.  Better yet, the GROOM made the booth as a surprise to his wife.  The couple did not want to spend the $1,500 to rent the photobooth, so the groom, as a surprise, made one for their wedding for $400.  Four hundred dollars.  Yes.

Who is with me in thinking that this guy needs to blog about the building of said photobooth?  Share the wealth (err, knowledge)!


The couple posted on their blog about how the made the photobooth, and of course I had to share!  Enjoy!


  1. I want a photobooth something fierce, but it is definitely not in the budget! I have seen couples who designate a corner in the reception space where they set up a backdrop and a camera and let people have a free-for-all there. It resulted in similar photos as a photobooth, but without the cost (they had a camera that printed photos on sticky paper).

  2. He posted the instructions on his blog!

    @Sarah I love the idea of using a fun back drop and those Pogo (?) cameras, too.

    @Kate I’ll have to update the post with a link to his instructions, haha!
