Open Air Vs Sit Down Photo Booths

What are the advantages / disadvantages of purchasing an open air vs. traditional sit down photo booth:

An Open Air photo booth is a booth without a curtain... Guests stand up in front of a background... Posing is view able by everyone at the event.

Here are some advantages of an open air style photo booth:

  • Guests get excited by seeing people pose.
  • Guests can stand up making the booth quicker than having a seat
  • Large groups feel more comfortable than in an enclosed booth
  • Open Air Booths are smaller and easier to transport
  • Open air booth set up in about 1/2 the time of a traditional portable booth
  • Open Air booths make having many backgrounds easy

Here are some advantages of a traditional style sit down booth:

  • Shy guests can feel more comfortable by not being seen while posing.
  • Traditional Photo Booths make more sense without explanation because guests have seen enclosed booths before.
  • A Jiffy Sit Down Booth can be used as both a sit down and an open air booth with just minor changes.
  • Traditional Photo Booths accommodate children and adults more easily because sitting is a great height equalizer.
  • In our experience, more people are looking for a traditional photo booth to rent.
