Frequently Asked Photo Booth Rental Questions
Can we customize a logo on the prints? Yes, we will customize a text graphic for you, for FREE, which can include names, dates, logos, custom colors, etc, on the photo booth prints.
How much space is required? We suggest an area of at least 8' Deep x 12' Wide with additional space for the line to form.
Do you host the photos on Facebook? Yes, we can format and host your photos on Facebook so that you may easily add them to your profile.
How do you know when the photo is going to be taken? A countdown (3...2...1) will appear on the screen just before the 'Look at the camera' graphic appears and a green light on the camera flashes just before the image is taken.
How can we be sure we are centered in the picture frame? No problem, our Photo Booth has a Live video camera feed between all shots, that enables you to see exactly were you are in frame. The live video feed also is more entertaining for watching quests!
Do you offer clear plastic bookmark sleeves and frames for the photos to go in? Yes, bookmark sleeves are 70 cents each with tassel and "T & L" style standing plastic frames are $1.20/each, all due at time of purchase. Minimum order 50. These also make great wedding favors! (Otherwise these may be offered on site for cash purchase to guests)
My event photographer said he can setup a 'photo booth', how is that different? Does it take pictures automatically or is it just a trigger on a camera? Do you get prints immediately at the event or are the images only viewable on the web? For years photographers have setup backdrops, lights and a camera at events. Just recently some have tried to pass this off as a 'photo booth'. It's just not as fun! To avoid disappointment, be sure you "try before you buy."
Do my guests have to wait 3-5 minutes for the prints? No, our photo booth is completely digital and takes approximately 45 seconds per group (including printing and signing). This reduces the backlog and waiting time for your guests! The original toxic, chemical-based photo booths typically take 3-5 minutes just for the printing alone! Ours prints a waterproof image in less than 10 seconds that will be a treasured souvenir for generations to come.
Are there additional travel charges? Depending on the number of hours you book. Standard-delivery is included within a 30-mile radius.
How many photos can we take during our event?
You receive unlimited access throughout the event. Our support staff is always available during the event to make sure everything runs smoothly.
How long does it take for the photos to be posted to your website?
Photos are uploaded in 24 to 48 hours, and are FREE to download.
How much do you charge for idle hours?
We charge $40 per hour of idle time. Some customers choose to have the photo booth run for a one-hour cocktail hour, or for an earlier set up. Have it idle for an hour during dinner and then have it run for a couple more hours during the reception as well.
Is the setup and tear down time part of my 4-hour event time?
No, we will set up and tear down the photo booth around your 4-hour block.
What happens if there is a mechanical problem with the photo booth?
Our booths are contractually guaranteed to run 85% of the time. They occasionally need paper and supplies replenished, otherwise they work non-stop. We also carry backups of all equipment to ensure functionality.
How many people can fit into the photo booth at once?
We can host up to 12 people in the photo booth at a time.
Where do you typically set up the photo booth?
We generally setup in the main reception area, foyer, or main entrance wherever there is enough space. The photo booth itself is not too large, but we require a table for the scrap or memories book and there is usually a line of people eager to jump in the photo booth. We recommend at least 12’w x 8’d area.
What makes your photo booth more entertaining and fun? Guests standing outside the photo booth can view the action on an external monitor. It is extremely entertaining even for non-participating spectators! We also provide FREE props to spice it up.
Is your photo booth wheel chair accessible? Yes, guests in a wheel chair (or walker) can wheel their chair into position, gather their family and friends around and join in the fun!
Can we add time to our rental on site? Yes, extra hours can be added if your time is up and you would like the fun to continue. Extra hours are $99 dollars each and $60 dollars for an additional half hour.
Does your photo booth use toxic or smelly chemicals? No, it uses a totally modern digital computer process delivering better quality, faster print times and re-printable, waterproof images. Like the original photo booths of old, our prints will last for several generations.
What do you require for booking the photo booth? A $200 non-refundable deposit with the contract holds your date. The full balance is due one week before your photo booth event. (2 weeks prior if paying by check)
Can I get the original images? Yes, the original downloadable digital files of the event printouts come with each booking via online.
How many hours will I need for my event? It really depends on the number of people in attendance, the type of event, etc. However 4-6 hours is the average and works out very well.
Does the rental include a photo booth attendant?
Yes, a professional attendant or two will be present during the entire rental period to help your guests operate and enjoy their photo booth experience.
