Ask the management of the venue if they allow photo booths in their premises. If you are hosting the party at home, you will not be required to consult but have it done.

Booth Aesthetic

There is a feel and space created by photo booths. You should have it clear in your mind and do everything to achieve it. Ensure that the booth takes the theme of the event.
