One of our most asked questions at Jellybean is…. Which is better?Photobooth, or Magic Mirror? Over the past six years we have seen the popularity of our magic mirrors increase, with them overtaking our photo booth bookings for the first time since 2016 however this is due to personal preference. We run down below what are the advantages and disadvantages of each… Photobooths Our stand out photo booths are a classic and are the OG choice for those classic photo prints. We started here at Jellybean with our photo booths and they come in a range of colours and styles.Our Square booths in black & white, our octagon booths in black & white, and our monster camera shaped booths to truly make a statement at your event. Our photo booths shoot in landscape orientation and include green screen as standard so you can select from our preset backgrounds, or choose your own – or even upload custom backgrounds. Our booths include as standard full design of your prints, red ropes and red carpet, and some fancy flames at the front of the booth to greet your guests – a truly Hollywood style approach. Our booths can hold up to 12-15 people inside for our square booths and you do get more cheeky photos inside due to them being enclosed vs our magic mirrors. Magic Mirrors So our magic mirrors run the same software and have similar features, however instead of a personalised green screen background, you have the choice of a physical backdrop instead. Also the photos are taken in a portrait orientation allowing the full image of everyones gorgeous gowns, outfits and dresses to be on show. You can fit a lot more people in the magic mirror photos due to the wide angle lenses, however less mischief tends to happen as “everything is on show!”.
