Seattle is known to be a rustling city, also called the Emerald City, and is famous for its lush forests. Across the city, there are 2,000 coffee shops (Starbucks started here), sports teams to watch and events to attend.
What do many people at these events do?
Hop in photo booths and take pictures. The industry is thriving, with the market expected to increase by a CAGR of 16% between 2021 and 2027.
Why People Still Book Photo Booths in Seattle
When you rent a booth, you’re offering your guests the opportunity to break the ice. Once a person steps into a booth, they’re immediately a different person. Smiles, laughs and conversations seem to materialize inside of photo booths that wouldn’t happen otherwise.
The benefits of a photo booth are:
- Party favors. When guests leave your event, they want something to remind them of the day. Photo booth photos make great party favors.
- Sharing. People love to share their lives with the world. Everyone is taking selfies or group pictures, and the photo booths of today are a lot more advanced than in the past. People are choosing booths that offer 360-degree views, slow motion and even animations that they can share with others.
- Brand extension. If you’re a corporation or even a couple hosting a wedding, photo booths can include a logo or text. For example, a wedding planner may choose to put the date of the wedding or the couple’s name at the bottom of the photo. Businesses may put their logo at the bottom.
In fact, you’ll find photo booths in use at many major events.

2. Corporate Events
Corporations that want to attract new clients or demonstrate new products will often hold events. These events can also be used for team building. Teams can strengthen their cohesion and break up the work day with corporate events.
And these events help keep teams strong for months to come.
Photo booths can help further build brand awareness, are fun and also can a new way for people to promote your event. People can post their printed photos on social media, and the Social Photo Booth makes posting to socials even easier.
Guests can have pictures sent directly from the booth to their email or in text message so that they can easily share them.
Holding a convention? Event planners recommend renting a photo booth here, too. Guests that just meet often hop into booths to take pictures and remember the night. If you’re holding a convention, consider a booth.
Photo booths are still a popular choice for entertainment in Seattle. When you’re looking for a way to keep guests entertained, photos are always a good idea.
Pride In Our Work
Why We Do What We Do
Photography has always meant something to us. It’s where we got our start, after all. Being able to capture and preserve a moment or memory isn’t something you can get with anything else.
As everything becomes more and more digital, photography (and by extension, photo booths) have to keep up with the times. That’s why we always try and stay as up-to-date and modern as we can with our photo booths.
Many people decide against booking a photo booth because they think they’re outdated or tacky. Granted, some still are. If we’re talking about some dusty curtain booth shoved in a corner with no attendant, then yes, we agree. They are tacky. But the booths we provide at Photo Booth Picture Company are always cutting-edge and top-of-the-line. You won’t find any tacky booths in our repertoire.
