5 Photo Booth Business Success Stories 
A photo booth business allows people to take photos during gatherings and events. Typically, photo booth businesses are common at weddings, movie theaters, and other high-traffic locations.
Starting a photo booth business allows you to provide high-quality equipment like cameras, lights, and filters to your customers.
You can employ people to put up the photobooths at events and pay them a percentage of your income based on the events they cover.
