Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I rent a photo booth for my event?
My wedding photographer or DJ offers a photo booth. Why should I book you?
This is a great question, because a lot of vendors these days try to offer everything under one roof. Planning a wedding or large event is exhausting, so it's understandable why you'd want to deal with as few vendors as posisble.
What types of events typically hire a photo booth?
Almost any type of event can be enhanced by our photo booths. While they're typically associated with weddings, we are here to work with clients at baby/bridal showers, bar/bat mitzvahs, birthdays, proms and dances, school, camp, and non-profit fundraisers, graduations, reunions, quincineras, sweet sixteens, corporate events, trade shows, grand openings and everything in between!
How much does a photo booth cost?
So, your final price will depend on several factors. You can check out our standard packages by selecting the "PACKAGES" link in the menu bar. There you will see that our offerings start at around $399 and range up from there. However, we know that no two events are the same, so we are happy to customize a package that fits your needs.
Is a deposit required? And what forms of payment do you accept?
Yes. Once we go over the details of your event, to reserve your date you must include a $200 deposit along with your signed contract. We accept cash, check, all major credit cards and PayPal. The remaining balance will be due upon arrival at the venue. We accept cash and credit card on the day of the event. If paying the balance by check, we prefer to receive that check at least 14 days prior to the event date.
How can I share and download photos after the event?
After your event is over, we'll provide a link to an online gallery featuring every photo from your event. From there you can share, download, and order professional prints.
Can I customize my photo strip design?
Absolutely! We'll work with you to create a design from scratch or from one of our templates. We can include your name(s), event, date, etc. in a color and font of your choosing.
How many photo strips are printed per session?
One per guest. Why should anyone have to share?
How big is the booth? What do you need to set up?
Our open air booth provides alot of flexibility. It's basically comprised of our 7.5'x7.5' backdrop stand (and backdrop), a red carpet which runs infront of the backdrop, and our photobooth tower (camera, tablet), light stand, printer, and prop table. All in all, we like to have a space measuring approximately 10'x15' and at least 8' ceilings. However, our set-up is flexible. If you need us to cram into an 8'x8' space, we'll figure out how.
What's included in the rental?
Everything! Our packages are all inclusive. We don't think it's right to tease you with a lower price and then try to upsell you with all kinds of crap.
Are you insured?
Yup. Fully licensed and insured. If you or your venue require a certificate of liability, that's something we'd be happy to supply.
Will there be a booth attendant during the event?
Not just a booth attendant, an owner. One or both of us will be there for the long haul, helping your guests with whatever they need.
What kind of props do you bring?
After discussing the details of your event, we will put together a unique combinations of props to fit your event's theme. We set ourselves apart from the competition by using many higher end props. Real hats. Real glasses. An assortment of signs. Much of our inventory is made by us or was crafted by people on Etsy. Most other companies will happily provide an assortment of cheap stuff made to be destroyed.
What should I expect the day of the event?
We will arrive about 60 minutes prior to your event time to set-up. We will ask for a set-up location and instructions beforehand, and the name and number of a contact so you won't have to be accessible to us during that time. As long as we have the phone number of someone who can let us into the building, we're good. Additionally, if we're owed a balance, that must be paid in cash or by card before we open the booth for business.
Can you set up on the 2nd floor? Outside?
Definitely! We show up with everything in pieces and construct the booth, backdrop, etc. on-site, so as long as there is a normal sized doorway, elevator, or ramp, we can set up pretty much wherever you want.
Can guests instantly share photos on social media?
Yes, subject to WiFi being available at the venue. If we get a signal, guests will have the option following each session to text or email the photos to themselves, as well as uploading the photos to various social media platforms.
How far will you travel?
We primarily serve the Mid-Hudson Valley, but we love a good road trip! Contact us with your information, and if we can find a way to get there safely, we will.
How far in advance should I book you?
Ideally, 3+ months gives you the best shot at booking us on your desired date. But always feel free to inquire. If your event is quickly approaching and we happen to have an availability, we'd be happy to show up on short notice!!!
