[[quoteright:350:[[WesternAnimation/CodeLyoko http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Photo_Booth_Montage_7267.jpg]]]]

A specific form of {{photo montage}}.

Some characters, usually a romantic couple, rush into a photo booth, and the audience is treated to a brief {{montage}} of the photos they took there. The last picture tells us about the couple in question: if they're becoming TrueCompanions it will be a funny mugshot; if they're becoming more than friends, it will be a surprise kiss or something more serious to suggest the progression. This is a common feature of [[GirlsNightOutEpisode girls' night out]], too, and can usually be spotted as a small part of a greater montage.

Compare with MugshotMontage.



[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* In ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'', a bunch of the characters go to a photo booth and much ShipTease ensues as the resultant pictures feature Negi and [[{{Tsundere}} Asuna]], Negi and [[UnrequitedLove Nodoka]], Negi and [[UnwantedHarem Yue and Haruna]], and [[SchoolgirlLesbians Konoka and Setsuna]].
* In ''Manga/LoveHina'', Keitaro has a tradition of taking photo booth pictures, but since he's [[UnluckyEverydude such a loser]], his album is full of pictures of just him, alone. Naturally he's very excited when [[LoveInterest Naru]] offers to take some pictures with him.
* ''Anime/TheIdolmaster'': Miki, when she's on her TenMinuteRetirement and Makoto when the Producer takes her to the amusement park.
* In the second ''Manga/InuYasha'' movie ''[[Anime/InuYashaTheMovieTheCastleBeyondTheLookingGlass The Castle Beyond the Looking Glass]]'', Inu-Yasha and Kagome get a rather angry one. Inu-Yasha would have destroyed the photo booth if it weren't for a [[RestrainingBolt Sit Command]]. Bonus points for the pictures looking like they were about to kill each other and Inu-Yasha's butt in front of the camera after the sit command.
* Early in ''Manga/DailyLifeWithMonsterGirl'', during [[LovableSexManiac Miia]] and [[UnluckyEverydude Kimihito]]'s "date" (or so she thinks it is; it's just an effort to acclimatize her to human society), they stop at a photo booth. The first photo is rather okay, but the next ones are all of [[RunningGag her constricting him until he passes out]].

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* Harley Quinn and the Joker indulge in this.
* The stoic X-23 and the recently vampirized Jubilee share a moment of bonding with one of these as well.
* "Photo Finish" in ''ComicBook/{{Batman}} Chronicles'' #9 featured Robin's first meeting with Batgirl, which ended with one of these. Dick expects to be in trouble for mucking about when he was meant to be on patrol, but when Batman sees it, he just says "Good teamwork, Robin."

[[folder:Films -- Animation]]
* The ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'' teaser/trailer [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HqNy_NhNZew "Selfie Is Everything"]] has no photo booth, but it's close enough: Nick is trying to take a series of selfies, only to have Judy repeatedly mess up with him.

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]

* ''Series/ArrestedDevelopment'' with Buster and the sheep. Soon used again with Lucille getting her grocery store card.

Averted in that the audience never sees the photos, but the girls hand them off to the store clerk. His reaction to what he sees kinda makes you wish you could have seen the photos.

[[folder:Theme Parks]]
* A horror-parody of this occurs in the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=odsnWGUGn24 2000 commercial]] for [[Ride/UniversalStudios Universal's]] Theatre/HalloweenHorrorNights. A couple is shown getting into a photo booth, only to suddenly be ambushed by [[MonsterClown Jack the Clown]].

Snapshot three: A close up of his teeth and finally snapshot four: Crash with his pants down showing off his underwear with hearts on them.
* In ''VideoGame/TheDarksideDetective'', [=McQueen=] and Dooley do one in the photo booth at the mall, although the blank-face pixel art means you have to imagine the faces they're presumably pulling.

** "Please Homer, Don't Hammer 'Em" has Lisa in the photo booth with a pair of eels.
* ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'' has a couple of examples:
** In "Emotion Sickness", Kim and Shego get tagged with [[EmotionBomb emotion-altering "moodulator" chips]]. While the chips are set to "love", Shego drags Drakken into a photo booth; the viewer sees a set of photos culminating in her [[TheGlomp pouncing on him]].
** In "Stop Team Go", Shego is [[MirrorMoralityMachine temporarily turned good]] and becomes like a big sister to Kim. When she's restored to normal, she wistfully looks at some photo-booth pictures from their brief friendship, then [[BurnBabyBurn ignites them]] when she hears Drakken approaching.
* ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'': In the episode "[[Recap/StarVsTheForcesOfEvilS2E19Friendenemies Friend-ennemies]]", during the Love Sentence song, Marco and Tom slips in the photo booth of the cart, with the classic montage of photos showing them fooling around following.
** The show seems to be fond of this trope, as two more photo booth montages are seen in "[[Recap/StarVsTheForcesOfEvilS1E2PartyWithAPony Party with a Pony]]", and "[[Recap/StarVsTheForcesOfEvilS2E33TheBounceLounge The Bounce Lounge]]".
