Frequently Asked Questions

How are you different?

  • 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 $50 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.


I have 200 guests at my wedding, will the 4 hour photo booth rental allow all my guest to use the booth?

  • Generally speaking people go in the booth in groups or at the very least by themselves. If all 200 of your guests came as couples then you'd need 100 sessions and since our booth does about 60 sessions per hour you'd need a minimum of two hours for every couple to get a print out. However many people go in twice and every family has a camera hog and the guest sometimes take forever to pick out their props. Taking that into consideration we recommend at least two hours for every 100 guests invited. For 200 guests that would be at least 4 hours. We've been to smaller weddings where everyone is constantly using it while we've also gone to larger weddings where there were so many activities it caused less usage. You'll have to use a bit of your own judgment to determine how long you want it.


Where is the best place to setup the photo booth at my event?

  • People partying on the dance floor aren't going to walk far away just to use the booth. Trust us on this one.  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 didn't get used as much. We've found that having it by the bar for some reason keeps it busy all night long. Not sure if the alcohol or what. Being beside the DJ or dancefloor the guest can’t hear the instructions in the booth or the great background music so we try to avoid setting up there.    


We plan on using the booth outside in an area that is frequently windy, is this an issue?

  • Yes, try to avoid windy places as the booth curtains fly into people's faces.  


Does an attendant come with the rental?

  •  Yes, he or she will set up the booth and answer any questions guests have as well as take the booth down at the end of the night. Your attendant will explain the operation and keep the "flow" going so as many of your guests as possible can have some The Photo Booth Guy taken.

 
What happens if there is a mechanical problem with the booth?

  • There is almost nothing "catastrophic" that can go wrong with the booths. We have had a few paper jams along the way and those are resolved within a few minutes. If something should happen that would cause the booth to become inoperable, We will bring a replacement booth or we would refund your money based on the time left for operating.


How many people can fit in the photo booth?

  • Our standard photo booths 1 – 4 people or more depending on how comfortable you are with the people piling in on top of you. We have three open air photo booths that everyone can get into the pictures and they will print a strip for everyone in the picture. Pick the photo booth that will you want for your event.

Is your Photo Booth portable?

  • Yes. Our uniquely designed Photo Booths are extremely portable. They can fit through any normal size door. The booth measures 3'x3' and when we add props that space requirement grows.

Does your Photo Booth have a screen on the inside to instruct guests on what to do?

  • Yes. Our Photo Booths have a touchscreen monitor inside that tells guests to touch the screen begin, counts down before each picture, and lets them know to exit the booth and pick up their print outs. It also displays the pictures of their session on the monitor when they are done.  Our attendant also helps "beginners" explaining the process and getting them started.
