What Are Photo Booth Backdrops?

Photo booth backdrops are a decoration that goes behind the photo booth for photos. The sole purpose of a photo booth backdrop is to help capture the subject (you, your guests, etc.) in the best, most flattering way possible. 

There are many types of backdrops available, but they all have the same purpose! 

Are Photo Booth Backdrops Necessary?

A backdrop for your photo booth rental isn’t always necessary. However, it can really make for excellent photos depending on the theme and event! 

Photo booth backdrops help bring more focus on the subject of the picture and create an aesthetically pleasing background for your photos. They can also prove useful when you’re planning to host an event somewhere that doesn’t have any other decorations in place. 

5 Benefits of Photo Booth Backdrops

When planning and decorating your next event, don’t forget about a backdrop for your photo booth rental! A well-chosen background can help accentuate all other aspects of your event, such as the theme and decor. 

There are many advantages to having a photo booth backdrop. Perhaps the most important being that your guests can have high-quality pictures taken and then keep those images as an instant souvenir! 

Below are five more benefits you can likely expect from having a good photo booth backdrop at your event. 

  1. Boost the decor and theme of any event 

  2. Draw attention away from any venue imperfections

  3. Endless range of style, materials, and color choices

  4. Durable and reusable 

  5. Effortless customization and personalization 

What Are The Most Popular Types of Photo Booth Backdrops? 

Fabric Backdrops 

Fabric backdrops come in many colors and are typically made of a sheer fabric that is stretched over a frame. Fabric backgrounds such as canvas or muslin are popular for their portability and versatility.

Muslin fabric is a popular photo booth background material with professional photographers because it's a non-reflective cotton that provides a soft and natural look.

Muslin backdrops can be airbrushed, hand-painted, and even screen printed.

Paper Backdrops 

Paper backdrops are a more affordable option and come in many colors. Paper backgrounds such as rice paper, pastel paper, or natural wood offer a one-of-a-kind photo booth backdrop that is also eco-friendly!

Sequin Backdrops 

Sequin backdrops are made of lightweight and reflective material. These festive backgrounds contain thousands of sequins that come in just about every color imaginable.

Sequin photo booth backdrops work well with flash photography because the material helps reduce harsh shadows.

Gold and Gold Streamer Backdrops 

An elegant and classy backdrop for your photo booth is the gold or gold streamer background.

These types of backgrounds can be made from just about any material and be used in nearly any environment. A solid gold or gold streamer backdrop is an easy way to bring Hollywood glamour to any event without the hefty price tag!
