There are lots of ways to add excitement and fun to your event, but in our opinion, there’s nothing that fits the bill quite like a photo booth!

Photo booths aren’t just a way to keep your guests entertained, they help capture those amazing memories. Give your wedding guests a favor they’re sure to treasure or generate buzz for your brand—it’s all possible with a photo booth.

In fact, the only problem is deciding which type of photo booth to choose!

Photo booths have come a long way since the ‘80s. Today’s models are sleek, sexy, and packed with tech-forward features. In this guide, we’ll break down the differences between the mirror photo booth vs video photo booth to help you decide.

Mirror Photo Booth

If you’re looking to infuse your event with a sense of magic, the mirror photo booth is the way to go!

Even if your friends and family have used photo booths at their weddings or graduation parties before, chances are they've never seen anything like this!

Reflect Your Style

Featuring a full-length mirror with a gold frame, the mirror photo booth blends seamlessly into any color palette or décor style.

If you're throwing a themed event and don't want to "ruin the magic", this is a perfect option!

Interactive Touch Screen

Everyone loves taking selfies, but why not shake things up a little?

In between photos you’ll be motivated by the fun, interactive prompts (including a countdown so you don't miss your shot!).

Add a Personal Touch

This baby is more than just a mirror. It’s an interactive LED touchscreen that allows you to add messages, emojis, signatures, and more with the swipe of a finger.

The results are printed on lab-quality paper as a 4x6 print, so you can display it anywhere!

Video Photo Booth

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so a video must be worth at least a million!

With our live gallery option, everyone’s photos are added to a digital slideshow that plays throughout the night on a smart TV.

This is a surefire way to make sure the photo booth stays busy all night!


Mirror Photo Booth vs Photo Video Booth

Still can’t decide? We can’t blame you!

Both the mirror photo booth and photo video booth offer amazing features that both you and your guests will love.

First of all, both are considered an “open air” type booth, allowing them to fit 6-8 people while still having a small footprint that fits into any event venue.

In addition, both booths can be paired with a backdrop for added customization. From minimal to our green screen, we have a backdrop that fits any event and/or theme.

Both the mirror and video booths also offer digital sharing! The mirror booth will send your guests a link to receive digital images for social media sharing, while the video photo booth will send photos, GIFs, boomerangs, and videos through text, email, or QR code.

And if you want those photos printed, both booths can do that as well. Our mirror booth prints 4x6 images, while our video booth prints either 2x6 photo strips or 4x6 prints.

It all comes down to one question: Do you want your guests to leave video messages or not?

Our photo video booth is the only booth with video messaging capabilities and it can be a great way to gather well-wishes from wedding guests, stories and testimonials about your brand, personal stories at a family reunion, and more.

If you’d rather have a photo booth that blends seamlessly into your décor, the mirror photo booth is the way to go.
