Ready to bring some serious glitz and glam to your next event? A black and white glam photo booth is the answer. This modern photography sensation is taking the event scene by storm and for good reason. Imagine your guests striking their most fabulous poses against a sleek backdrop, drenched in studio-quality lightning, and rendered in an effortlessly flattering black-and-white filter. It’s like stepping onto the set of an old Hollywood movie or gracing the cover of Vogue!

The Glamorous Evolution

Glam booths first got their claim to fame back in 2013, thanks to none other than the trendsetting Kardashians. The black and white booth at their legendary Christmas Eve party sparked a frenzy, making glam booths a must-have for any A-list event. Since then, they’ve continued to reign supreme, adding a touch of elegance and “Instagrammable” appeal to every occasion. 

What is A Glam Photo Booth?

Glam photo booths are more than just a place to snap a few pictures — they’re a full-on trip to old Hollywood and high-fashion glamour. With its traditionally black-and-white aesthetic, skin-smoothing refinement, and studio-quality lighting, these booths elevate every photo into a bona fide magazine-worthy shot. 

What Is The Difference Between A Glam Booth And A Photo Booth?

There are tons of options when it comes to choosing a photo booth, but what sets a glam photo booth apart is its beautifying black-and-white filter. If you go the glam booth route, your guests will be sure to look their best in every photo — an instant winner when sharing on social media. This makes glam booths one of our most popular choices for customers’ weddings. After all, the photos will flawlessly match your wedding aesthetic and be the perfect post to tag with your wedding hashtag.
