How we create custom photo booth print designs (and props)
At VIP Photo Booth we personalise the photo booth prints to match your theme, colours and motif’s.
Upon formalising the booking, we send an email to you to gather all of your ideas, theme colours, style, artwork, layout preferences and backdrop ideas.
Once received your notes with your artwork and preferences. We note all your preferences and our designer will begin creating a few design variations.
For Dani and Dan’s wedding we received the following information:
Floral theme inspiration for us to incorporate into the custom photo booth print design:
Along with the furniture list / mood board for the wedding:
This gave us a great starting point and enough juices for us to begin creating the personalised designs.
CREATING THE DESIGN
With all that received we now have a great feel to the direction and begin creating the custom photo booth designs.
In this case we created a mixture with 3 main layouts and a couple of in between variations.
We typically love the design having a ‘hero’ shot as it becomes the feature shot of the session followed by 2 further complimentary shots.
This is one of the main benefits of a designing 4″x6″ postcard size print is being able to have the hero shot.
(Left design) We designed an elegant and simplistic to match their invitation style.
(Middle design) Designed to be a balance of their invitation along with the floral theme.
(Right design) Another step further and adding more even color.
Our bride selected ‘Design 2 / Middle design’ but requested “any chance it could have some latte coloured orchids”
We don’t stop till it’s perfect. While we weren’t able to get a ‘stock’ image of ‘latte coloured orchids’ to add to the design we ended up colour retouching orchids for the desired result. Update done as per requested and the client loved it!
Following the design confirmation, we’ll present the backdrop options requested and if any other backdrops we would also recommend.
Gold foil overlay with gold sparkle backdrop was chosen.
CUSTOM #HASHTAG PROP
A custom photo prop adds an extra element of personalisation to the experience and a great momento. Also requested was to create a custom #hashtag photo prop sign using their wedding hashtag “itsreillyhappening” which is a great play of “it’s really happening” updated to their married surname “reilly”. We created a couple of colored variations along with shapes for the couple to choose from below.
P.S – Creating your own event hashtag allows you and your guests to see images from your event on Instagram too.
Option 6 was chosen (and our favorite too)
THE FINAL PRODUCT
Here’s the results and a couple of photos from the event along with the custom #hashtag sign
