The photo booth seems to be making a rather vigorous comeback in modern day. Sparking demand for newer and more intricate designs, sharper imagery, updated technology, along with the upgrade in antics that have made the photo booth so great over the years. A glamorous addition to any event or party, these memory-makers have been tailored to suit custom needs throughout their design history.  I am going to take you down that fun and colorful road right now, as we take a look at the different kinds of photo booths making the rounds today.


Over the years, traditional photo booths have kept their basic box-shaped design, while designers have tweaked a few things here and there, to customize these booths to better suit one’s style and preferences.

Vintage Style:

The vintage style booth is constructed using a sturdy frame, while retaining the basic look of the original photo booth. These machines have been fitted with the latest digital technology, offering users a computer screen with which to check their poses, and select different options and photograph features. Many of these booths come fitted with a bench, and can comfortably fit 2/3 people.

Retro Style:

Retro style booths have evolved from their Vintage predecessors, keeping many of their similar aspects. The internal screen offers users high-quality prints via the latest in digital technology and components, and it has been specifically built for the photo booth rental industry. Both the Vintage and Retro style booths have been designed to capture facial expressions in a classic photo-strip look.

Modern Style:

Made of panels, curtains, or walls, these booths are designed to be bigger than the Retro booths, and are ideal for photographing a large group of people at once. Fitted with an internal computer screen, users can strike their ultimate pose while knowing when the photo will be taken. Modern style photo booths do not come with a bench or seat, and are designed for users to be standing freely.


A Kiosk refers to any photo booth that looks like a column structure. They do not typically come with a backdrop or enclosure, and users use mirrors or a screen to check their pose. The big advantage to the Kiosk style is that there is no limit to the number of people that can potentially be in the shot. Kiosks can also be referred to as “print stations”, as they facilitate the printing of instant pictures taken by mobile devices (using Instagram) or a photo booth.


A photo booth hire set up makes use of a photographer, who uses their camera to snap up pics while guests act the fool. These can be either open or closed, with an interchangeable backdrop or partitioning options.


Novelty photo booths are where you are going to find all the latest crazes in the realm of photo boothing. Often kitted with Slow-Mo video booths, mirror booths, GIF booths and Instagram printing kiosks, these booth options are more often than not operating as tricked out cars or caravans. These can get really fun. Novelty photo booths often incorporate cartoon characters right into your photo’s, taking this experience to the next level.

I hope that these have helped you to settle on the best photo booth for your next event. All their unique design and entertainment elements have geared these guys to be the life of your next get together. Bring your own props and create memories that last a lifetime.
