FAQ

What is the deposit to hold my date?

50% of the rental fee. The balance is due two weeks before your event. We accept Visa and

Mastercard as well as checks and money orders.

 

Do you charge extra for set up of your booths?

No, we will arrive early to set up the booth and then take it away at the end of the event.

 

I need the booth set up two hours before my reception because my ceremony and reception are

at the same place. How much do you charge for idle hours?

This happens quite frequently. We charge $30 extra per hour of idle time. Some customers

choose to have the booth run for a one hour cocktail hour. Have it idle for an hour during

dinner and then have it run for a couple more hours during the reception as well.

 

How many pictures does your both take per hour?

This is a question that a lot of clients are confused about!  Our photo booths take four

photos per session. We can do about 50 sessions an hour. After each session the four photos

are printed out on a single sheet of photo paper.  So the booth takes a total of around 200

photos per hour. Some companies have booths that do 6 photos per session. Because each

session takes longer though they can only do around 35-40 sessions per hour and thus less

people get to use the booth per hour.

Bigger is not always better!

While we can program our booths to do any number of photos, we have found that four is the

perfect balance between efficiency and letting people have fun.

If you have a special situation that requires a high volume of people to go through the

booth in a short amount of time we recommend renting two booths or simply having a single

picture per session.

 

Do we get unlimited photos during the rental period?

Yes and no.

Many companies brag about “unlimited” photos, however, there is actually a limit to the number of photos you can make whether you rent from us or another company. The limit is due to how fast the printer can print the images. Your guest need about a minute to get into the booth and take their photos. So to answer the question, yes we can print as fast as the booth can rotate occupants.

 

I have 200 guests at my wedding, how many hours should I rent the booth for?

Generally speaking people go in the booth in groups or at the very least as couples.

If all 200 of your guests enter as couples, then you’d need 100 sessions.  Since our

booth does about 50 sessions per hour you’d need a minimum of two hours for every couple to

get a print.  If you anticipate your guest entering solo for their image or if they wish to enter multiple times, then you will need more time.

Taking that into consideration we recommend at least an hour and a half for every 100 guests

invited. For 200 guests that would be at least 3 hours.

 

I want the photo booth at my cocktail hour outside and then will have my reception inside.

Should we move the booth inside?

Yes. People partying on the dance floor are probably not going to use the booth if they must walk to far away.

We’ve seen a few events where the clients insisted on having the booth

in some isolated corner or in a totally different room, and it hardly got used.

We’ve found that having it by the bar, for some reason, keeps it busy all night long. Our booths can

be easily moved, but make sure you give us enough clearance to so.

 

Our reception venue is on the side of a mountain. To get there you need to go up 100 steps

and across a swinging bridge. Will that be a problem?

No, our  booths are easily transported, weigh 70 pounds and come in a rolling case.

 

Oh and there’s no electricity on the side of the mountain either.

No problem we can run our booth on batteries for an extra fee.

 

It rains quite often on this mountain side and we want the booth outside, will that be an

issue?

Well we do have a rain fly we can put over the booth, but I doubt your guests will want to

get wet to use it.

Generally speaking, it is best to have it in side close to an electricity outlet.

 

How much floor space will the booth take up? Will you need anything besides electricity? Is it wheel chair accessible?

3.5’x 5.5 feet. It fits 3 comfortably, but we’ve seen 12 or more people crammed up in it

We have larger booths available too for an extra fee, but we find that our standard size is

the most popular. If you purchase the guest book option, a small rectangular table will be

needed as well as a chair for people to sign the guestbook. It is wheel chair accessible. Our booth is unique in that the bench can be removed and people in wheel chairs can then use the booth.

 

I’ve seen some companies that need a separate table for a computer printer and notebook

computer, which seems to take up a lot of space. Does your company require that?

For our standard photo printouts no extra table is needed. If you are going to be ordering

key chains or mugs or a scrapbook we will need a table provided so we can assembly the party

favors.

 

How long does it take for photos to be posted on the internet? Can they be password protected?

Two weeks or less.

Yes, we can password protect your gallery.

 

Can we get a copy of the images taken by the digital photo booth on a disk?

Yes all photo booth rentals include a CD or DVD of all the photos taken at high resolution,

which will allow you to make enlargements up to about 16×20.

 

Can you print out the classic 4 strip black and white photos like the old 1950’s photo booths

do? Are there other options for how the photos are printed?

Yes, we can print the strips out in black and white or color. If you choose the photos strips

then the machine prints out two 4×6″ strips on a sheet. This is a very popular option for

people that want a scrapbook guest book. The guests keep one strip and the other strip goes

into the scrap book.  You can also choose to have four photos printed on a single 4×6″ sheet

with your event name and date imprinted on it. Actually you can have any personalized

message or even a logo printed along with the 4 photos. We also offer mugs, key chains,

scrapbooks and larger sized photos up to 8×10″. See our gallery section of our web site for

photos of those items.
