Since we’ve been in operation, there are many common questions that come up.
How Big is Your Photo Booth?
The booth is about 6.5 feet wide at it’s widest, 9 feet long, and a touch over 6 feet tall. It is a portable photo booth so any normal doorway isn’t a problem. For most adults, four fit pretty comfortably in the booth, but as many as nine have crammed into it. It all depends on how much you like the people you’re taking photos with.
What Else Besides the Space Claim Needs to be Provided?
The photo booth needs a three-pronged outlet within 20 feet of the setup area unless additional extension cord is supplied, and we highly recommend a 6 foot round or 8 foot long table available to spread out the photo booth props. If you are getting a scrapbook for your event, then a table is required for assembling the books and giving your guests a place to write congratulations or other messages.
How Many Prints an Hour Can the Booth Make?
Theoretically, the booth can do more than 75 prints an hour. The most sessions I’ve had was a little over 60 in an hour in “real world” conditions (at a Sweet 16 party), and most events will see 40 or so prints an hour while the booth is operational. How many prints you get at your event depends on the number of patrons, their interest in the booth, other activities like dancing or dinner, and how focused they are in getting into the booth.
How Long Does it Take to Set Up the Booth?
It’s about 30 minutes to set up the booth and make sure everything is working. We usually like to arrive 45-60 minutes before the event to give us time for any technical issues that may arise or difficulty in getting our equipment in place, such as a long distance between loading zones and our setup area.
How Long Does it Take to Tear Down the Booth?
Taking down the booth is about a 30 minute project as well, perhaps a little shorter. Remember to account for teardown time when scheduling your events! If the venue or hall demands everyone out by a certain time, be sure we have time to get out to avoid drawing a late/overage charge.
Can You Set the Booth Up Outside?
Yes, provided there is space that is relatively flat, dry, and within 20 feet of a three-pronged outlet as mentioned above (or have extra extension cord available) but there are some restrictions. First off, there are a lot of electronics in the booth so if there’s a threat of rain, have a tent or canopy to cover the booth, or a backup plan to set up the booth inside if needed. Also, depending on the time of day or year, the sun can be harsh leading to poor quality photos. We can often make adjustments to the camera settings and our lighting to improve the outcome, but it can be hard to keep up with changes in lighting on a partly cloudy day or in a space with intermittent shade. The bottom line is yes, we can set up outside but we highly recommend having a canopy or other reliable cover over the booth.
What payment methods do you accept?
We accept cash, checks, PayPal, and all major credit and debit cards. If you want to pay cash, we will need to arrange a meeting to pick the money up. Checks can be mailed to our business address or processed through PayPal. Credit and debit cards are processed through PayPal, which you don’t need an account to use – there is an option to process payment without and account.
What Does a Rental Cost?
The standard Saturday rental is four hours for $495. We do offer discounted rates and shorter minimum rentals for events early on Saturdays as well as on other days of the week. We do offer school, church and non-profit discounts for weekday and Sunday rentals. Contact us for custom quotes. We offer a public service (police and firemen) and military discounts for weddings, where a memory book is included at no extra charge.
Will I get a Copy of the Photos After The Event?
Yes! We save a copy of both the original photos used in the photo strips and the photo strips themselves, and upload them to our web site or Facebook page for you and your guests to download.
