    Do you actually have a booth made for it or is it just camera+ringflash+background+props+printer+ etc...?

    nope... 9 foot seamless, tripod, camera w/ ringflash, and maybe a wire trigger.

    Ringflash? How many people were you getting shots of at a time?

    And no printing on site?

    I had white seamless, 1 320ws strobe in a 60" umbrella and me manning the booth... next wedding will have a similar set up, just with someone else manning the booth. Tried on site printing and it was just a huge hassle without the proper software. If I do on site printing again, I'll use something like DSLR pro

    I also set up a proof site where guests can go and buy prints or digital copies afterward if they'd like to.

    Sahasrara; magnetic violet infinite
    cam, tripod, ringflash, seamless white

    tape out a volume on the floor with green painters tape
    about 4-5 people wide.
    Fit as many people into the box as they want. Some people seem to take this as a challenge. Hijinx ensue.

    Have someone else run the booth. If done right, it will be super popular with lots of people lined up for it, so should be a f/t job for the entire evening reception.

    thats why I stuck the wide angle on the D300... because even at 14mm, there was very little distortion, good coverage, and good quality pic. I'd post them, but they're Nicole and Kevin's family pics. I don't think that would be appropriate. :o
