We love when classes decide to have a photo booth at their high school reunion. The fun props and the instant gratification of a picture printout only adds to the already festive party atmosphere.
If your reunion budget allows, you can hire a company to bring out their camera, printer, background and props, usually at the cost of $300 to $700 for the evening.
For reunions wanting to save a few dollars, you can set up a camera, purchase props at a thrift store, and have committee members volunteer to take shifts snapping the pictures. Even better if you can enlist the help of someone’s spouse or high school aged kid. Instead of printing out the photos, upload them to a Facebook page or hashtag the pictures for Instagram.
Check out some of our favorite props from the Mr. Pickles Photo photo booth at the Parkway Central Class of 2004 10-year reunion.
Classmates had a great time with the props and the pictures, taking more than 100 photos during their reunion.
Another easy prop idea is to create a photo frame using foam core or an old picture frame you find at a garage sale. Thanks to our friends at Reunion Specialists, a San Diego based reunion planning company, for the idea (and the PHS 20 Year photo).
