FAQ- Photo Booth

Are you a photographer or a Photo Booth vendor?

Great Question! We happen to be both! Sami has been photographing weddings, corporate events and special events for over 10 years and decided to add photo booths to her photography arsenal. Her photography expertise guarantees that you will have an experienced photographer on site, but also someone who knows how to work a crowd and a party.

What type of events do you serve?

You name it. We have set the booth up at weddings, proms, baby showers, fund-raisers, bar/bat mitzvahs, corporate events, customer appreciation days, grand openings, birthday parties, awards banquets, anniversaries and more! Contact us to tell us what you have planned and find out about our packages. We can tailor something for any type of event.

What is an “Open-air Photo Booth”?

Our open air photo booth lets everyone in on the action! An Open Air Photo Booth can fit almost double the amount of people than what traditional enclosed booths can. The open air booth is equipped with high-end digital cameras and a special flash to produce flattering studio-quality photos. Get crazy with the backdrop, fit the whole bridal party, and let your guests enjoy the entertainment of not only using the booth, but watching other people use it too!

How long does it take to set up?

We usually need 60 minutes prior to opening the booth for entertainment to set everything up. Some events require advanced setup. Depending on timing, distance and other bookings, there may be a small travel or downtime charge for advanced very early setup – but usually we can accommodate without additional fees. Once you discuss your plan with us, we can advise and take care of everything else.

How many people fit in your booth?

Well let’s just say we have had been known squeeze as many guests in as possible, our record is somewhere in the teens! That’s the beauty of our photo booth – it is not limited. Our photo booth requires a minimum of 9×9 area to set up, but we will take as much space as you have available for us! We take great pride in having a Photo Booth that can quickly adapt when a large group of guests want to huddle up for a photo! The more people in the booth laughing and having a good time will ensure we are the life of the event.

Can we choose the color of the back ground?

We have a Black or White backdrop available for you to choose from. You have the option to create your own backdrop or we can customize a backdrop tailored to your event for an additional fee.

Can I personalize the photo strips?

You sure can! We personalize the photo strips with names, dates, monograms, logos, or any other graphics. Unlike other companies that only let you customize the top portion, we customize the entire photo strip for you free of charge.

Are the photos of high quality?

We wouldn’t have it any other way! We use high quality DSLR canon cameras, Windows tablet, and DNP printer to ensure you get clear and vibrant photos. All camera settings are adjusted on-site at your event to make sure we get the best quality photos.

Why would I want a scrapbook of the photo strips when I have the digital files?

The scrapbook is the perfect addition to any package, especially weddings! It is meant for you to have as a take away from your event. Imagine getting home and being able to look through your scrapbook while laughing hysterically at your family and friends in over sized sun glasses, boas and funky hats while reading their messages of love and O-so-wise advice on marriage. We can’t think of a better way to end your night! Include it in your package as an add-on!

What kind of props do you provide, and can I bring some of my own?

Our props cover a wide range of fun items that are constantly changing. Some props you will usually find are: feather boas, Hawaiian leis, big sunglasses, all sorts of different hats (such as cowboy, police man, pirate, etc.), crowns and tiaras, moustaches on sticks, picture frames and more!
