Seven reasons why roaming photography is the new go-to Event photography service

Photo booths will always have a special place in our heart. They’re the bread and butter of our business, but if you’ve been reading our blogs for awhile you’ve seen a huge recent trend in roaming photography for our clients. We’re huge fans of this service! If you’re stuck between renting one of our photo booths or booking roaming photography, check out these reasons why roaming could work for your event:

  1. Mobility – Roaming photography allows our photographer to move around your event space and capture it all versus being stationary like with a typical photo booth! This is an ideal concept if you have a large guest list so we can maximize and take photos of the whole party like we did at this fundraising event. This is also ideal if you have several stations or rooms your guests will be visiting during the event! You’ll get photos of guests enjoying all elements of your event versus waiting for them to hop in front of the photo booth.

  2. Time efficient - With a traditional photo booth, it’s easy for a line to form, taking your guests away from your event! Roaming photography is the perfect way to alleviate this challenge because it only takes our team 20-30 seconds to take a photo versus 45-60 seconds with a photo booth. This way your guests can get the same photos they would with a photo booth then back to having fun at your event! We did this for an event here, and they absolutely loved our efficiency!

  3. Minimal space – Because only a photographer is needed, roaming photography takes up no space! If anything, our photographer is just another person at your event like at this Bumble event we did this summer! If you decide to add printing to your service but still don’t have much space, no worries! With the table and printer added, we only take up 2x4’ of space!

  4. Increased interaction – The beauty of our roaming photography is having a positive and professional photographer with a DSLR camera take candid and posed shots of your guests at your event! Our photographer will even let you know when to smile if you need the heads up as well, so you truly are picture perfect with every shot!

  5. Facial recognition – Yep, you read that right (Cue Mission Impossible theme song). Our software uses facial recognition so your guest only has to put in their information once and every time they are spotted in a photo, it automatically gets sent to them! Which gives the guests the power of printing their own photo in seconds! Gone are the days where a guest needs to type their phone number or email in each time they want a photo, wait until their friend uploads the photo, or it’s finally sent to them days later.

  6. Budget friendly – Roaming photography can work with any budget. It’s perfect for any type of event you wouldn’t normally pay for a full time photographer but still want great memories! Some popular events we’ve done with roaming photography are: rehearsal dinners, wedding receptions, corporate and social parties, grand openings, pet friendly events, boat cruises, and sorority events! Roaming photography can be used to supplement what your photographer may otherwise miss or you have a smaller budget.

As far as upgrades with roaming photography, we can easily add any of our luxury backdrops or installations, extra time for detail shots of your event and anything that you would normally get with a photo booth!
