The Best Photobooth To Offer for COVID Weddings

The Best Photobooth To Offer for COVID Weddings

With the Salsa Photobooth and its new features, you can do your part to make weddings safer as well as make more money. 

It’s no secret that weddings have gone through some drastic changes over the past year. Strict restrictions on the number of guests along with what can and cannot happen at gatherings have taken a toll on how wedding vendors run their business. One of the common restrictions we have seen across the world is a limit on the number of people present at weddings. This restriction almost always includes wedding vendors. So, if you can only have 25 people at your wedding, it’s pretty likely that clients may cut some vendors in order to allow more friends and family to attend.

We also have to seriously consider the activities that happen at a wedding, especially things that people need to touch over and over. And while this can be overcome by cleaning after each use, you then run back into the issue of needing more people on staff to take care of this recurring task. 

This is where the new update to the Salsa Photobooth comes into play. With the new update, you now have the ability to drop off the booth and have it run unsupervised. Better yet, it can run unsupervised and touch-free. 

The way this works is once the booth is dropped off and set up, it simply runs until it gets torn down. From here, guests simply walk up and use hand gestures to start the booth. Once the booth takes the images, guests can use their phones to scan a QR code to get instant access to the images. They can then instantly download and share to their social media of choice. 

You will also still get the contact info from the guests (phone number or email) so that you can use that info to later send special print offers after the event. Or, if you are photographing the event, you'll be able to send everyone a link to the full gallery of images once ready. 

The only issue with using the touchless option is that you are limited to a single feature of the booth. Run normally, you have the ability to choose if you want to take an image, video, GIF, or boomerang. But with touchless, there is no way for a user to select which one of those features they want to use, so you are limited to setting up the booth to use a single of the four features. Not a huge deal, just something to be aware of before you start marketing your new booth. 

So, if you are a wedding photographer (or any wedding vendor or simply want to start a new business), the Salsa Booth would make for a great buy. They retail for $2,999, but given that most booths can be rented out for $650+ dollars per event, you can expect the payoff to be pretty fast. Add in the fact that you could be the only person offering a touchless and attendant-free booth in your area, and you could book up pretty quickly.
