Will the guest at my event need to put money in the photobooth?
No. Unlimited photos are included in our pricing so your guests can enjoy themselves without needing money.

How many photos can we take in an hour?
Our photobooths have the latest technology and therefore print as fast as 16 seconds!! However, we find that most people will spend 1 to 2 minutes entertaining themselves in the booth before taking the picture.

How many pictures does each person get?
The photobooth will produce two strips of 4 pictures each. The second strip is a duplicate of the first. Your guests can keep both strips of pictures or our attendant can hand them 1 strip and put the second strip in a Memory Book for you. (additional charges apply)

Do the photobooths print in color or black and white?
Our booths print in both color or black and white. You can decide to have everyone do it the same way or allow your guest to choose how they want them printed. When selecting black and white in the photo booth, you do not have the option to add frames or hairstyles.

What do you require from our event space?
We will contact your event location ahead of time to ensure that everything runs smoothly. We will also work with your event's manager to coordinate all necessary details for the event.

Here's what we use to qualify an event space:

  • A 20 amp dedicated circuit.
  • Doorways must be at least 35 inches wide.
  • Space is at ground level with no stairs.
  • If there are stairs -- then we require access to a freight elevator.
  • Adequate space for the photo booth & memory book table if requested.
  • Access to the event space at least 2-3 hours prior to the event start time.

If your space fulfils these requirements, you should be good to go.

How much space should we allocate for the photobooth?
Our photobooths are approximately 3 1/2 feet long, 2 1/2 feet wide and 6 1/2 feet tall. If you choose the photo album option, you will also need space for a 6 foot table. The table for the memory book must be provided by the venue, yourself, or one can be rented from us.

What questions should I ask when renting a photobooth for my event?

  • Can I come and see your photo booth and try it prior to signing any contract or giving any deposit? - If not, why not?
  • How much time does it take to print a photo strip? - If it takes more than 30 seconds, you will be waiting too long.
  • At the end of the night will you be handed a memory stick with all the photos taken that evening?
  • What photo options are available? (Black and White, Color, Borders, Backgrounds, Fashion Hairstyles, Custom Text on Prints)
  • Do any costume accessories come with?
  • Does a professional and knowledgeable attendant come with the rental?
  • Do they have backup vehicles in case theirs breaks down during delivery?
  • Can you order a professional Memory Book that you can take home at the end of the night?
  • What is the price for 4 hours? You will find that you get what you pay for. If the price seems too low, there is a reason why...
  • Do you have all licensing rights to your photographs or will they post them on a website and charge you for additional prints?

What kind of quality prints should we expect for the photo booth?
Our photo booths use a Di-Sublimation printing system. A fancy term that means your photos will never fade. Our photobooths have a built in Sony digital camera. Prints are made using the same technology as one-hour photo labs, however your wait is less than 30 seconds!!

How does a photobooth work?
One, two, or three people pose for a picture and then press a large button and the magic starts. After it automatically takes 4 pictures of your guests, it processes those pictures and prints them out in a photostrip in less than 30 seconds.

How do I determine if we need a photo booth or Green Screen Photography?
You will need to use Green Screen Digital Photography if any of the following requirements are needed:

  • More than 3 people need to be in the pictures.
  • You would like custom text or logos on every picture.
  • You want full body shots.
  • You want to supply a custom background.
