Every wedding needs a photo booth, think of all the beautiful memories having one could give you in the years to come. It’s fun, chic and a really great way to capture the true personalities of your wedding guests – right in front of that very personal flash bulb.
We wanted to hear from the horse’s mouth about how to rent one so we interviewed Jacob Stewart, co-founder The Traveling Photo Booth®. Read on to find out how to rent one for your wedding.

CSW How far in advance should a couple contact you for a booking or meeting?
TTPB The sooner the better. Certain dates book out earlier than others so the sooner we can help the couple determine if we’re a good fit, the better.
CSW Do you have any wishes or expectations for each couple?
TTPB We understand how important “the big day” really is and how important it is to capture the guests enjoying the reception. We expect each couple to hold us to the highest standard, to remember that they’re the boss, and to demand from us nothing but the highest quality images imaginable and a flawless, enjoyable rental experience.
CSW What inspires you?
People that break the rules (in a good way), seek perfection and uniqueness, and enjoy the journey as much as the destination. We’re fortunate to work with couples that LOVE breaking free of tradition (the photo booth isn’t traditional…at least not yet!), have extremely unique events (why not have an open bar during the ceremony?), and have nearly as much fun leading up to the event as they do staring in the event.
CSW Your 5 favorite things?

CSW What are your style tips for brides and grooms?
Personalize, Personalize, Personalize. Again, it’s okay to break the rules. It’s your big day. Make sure that YOU stand out more than the dress or suit.
