One of the essential accessories at a wedding is an instant camera. It allows us to take photographs that will be printed at the moment and are ideal when placing them in the wedding album along with a dedication. A unique and original souvenir for a special day.
There are many instant printers you can buy and all of them are a great option, butor it will depend on how much you want to spend, what is the photo format what you like or other aspects. For example, some printers print in the classic vintage-style Polaroid photo format. But others print little sticky photos on ZINK paper that you can stick on any mural or album No need for adhesives or glue.
In addition, they are not only a good option for weddings, but later they are an original and fun gadget that you can take anywhere and with which to immortalize all kinds of moments.
If you want the classic, Polaroid. The brand was the most popular in the eighties and nineties in this type of cameras and now it has brought some models back to the market. Among them, the Polaroid Now is a great option if you’re looking for instant wedding cameras because it gives you the retro but original touch What will be needed at the event? And it’s available in many different colors: pink, red, black, grey, blue, yellow, white, green… They all cost around 100 euros but they don’t include paper, you’ll have to buy it separately to start using it.
It has autofocus, double exposure and great sharpness. But there is only one catch: Polaroid paper is usually much more expensive than other brands on this list, so it will be a bigger outlay if you want to have many guests pasting their images in your wedding album.
