Enclosed vs. Open Air

Since the introduction of the open-air photo booth, there has been much talk about which booth is better; the open-air booth or the more traditional enclosed booth. However, which is cooler? Which is nicer? Which is more convenient? Those are some of the questions that keep people like me awake all night, but truth be told, the answer varies based not only on preferences but also experiences.


Which offer more privacy?

There’s no debate here. The enclosed booth is enclosed, so privacy here is at the highest when it comes to photo booths. If you're looking for a booth where you can play dress-up, have private photos taken, or do whatever it is that you do when nobody is looking, enclosed is the way to go.

Winner: Enclosed photo booth


Which offer the best photo-bombing opportunities?

Photobombing is an art that requires room, even for the more experienced photobombers. With an open-air booth a photo-bomber, even a newbie, can jump in at any time, meanwhile, in an enclosed booth the bomber will have to spend 5 minutes getting ready for the shoot, completely ruining the surprise factor.
Winner: Open-air photo booth


Which is better for a large group?

Photo booths are better with friends, and so big groups are something to contemplate. Our enclosed booths and open-air booths can take the same amount of people!

Winner: Tie


Which creates a more fun atmosphere?

This depends on how crazy you and your guests are willing to get. Open-air booths, because of their lack of privacy, can get more people involved. I mean, who doesn’t want to come to take a silly photo when grandma is doing just that. Meanwhile, enclosed booths give you the privacy to act as wild as you'd like with no one watching.

Winner: Tie


Which requires less space?

While open-air booths have a smaller footprint, they still need some room for the backdrop. In tight spaces, they do just fine, but you can lose the ability to accommodate large groups. Enclosed booths have set dimensions which in most case are smaller than that of open-air booths. So in reality, this one depends on the space you have available.

Winner: Tie
