068: The Pros and Cons of Photobooths for Photographers with Brandon Wong
Photobooths have become a staple at wedding receptions across the world. The question I have for you is simple: why aren’t you, the photographer, offering a photobooth as part of your services?
In this episode of The Bearded Tog podcast, I talk with Brandon Wong, the founder and CEO of Photo Booth Supply Co. His biggest goal is to help businesses create more revenue.
Brandon shares how he transitioned out of wedding photography to launch a photo booth company, and why every photographer should own a photo booth.
- A wedding photographer can only physically photograph so many weddings per year. Earning additional income when you’ve hit your cap is tricky. With photobooths, photographers can give their clients something that they were probably already going to purchase, and take home more money.
- Photobooth Supply Company’s photo booths are designed to make the experience easy, fun, and interactive for the wedding guests. You only need to hire an attendant if you are concerned about security for your equipment.
- If you do hire an attendant, make sure they are there to serve the guests and encourage them to have fun. A teenager standing there bored on their phone doesn’t look professional.
- Having a photo booth provides an amazing marketing opportunity for you as the photographer. Each photobooth collects the guests’ emails, and after the wedding, you can send them a link to the gallery, and a promotional pitch for your services. (Do make sure to comply with email collection laws and regulations!)
- A photobooth is now a mandatory line on a wedding budget. If it’s going to eb at the event, you as the photographer, the one responsible for pictures, should be the one to offer it.
- Every wedding guest is important, but it’s hard for a photographer to be able to capture all of them on the wedding day. A photobooth ensures there will be plenty of pictures of the guests.
