We hope this page will give you a better idea as to what The Booth is all about and answer some of the questions you may have about our services.  Should you have questions that were not addressed here, please feel free to contact us and we will be more than happy to answer those as well.

 

What type of event would benefit from having a photo booth?
Almost any . . . birthdays, weddings, school events, graduations, reunions, fundraisers, corporate events, office parties, retirement parties, etc.  Whenever you get a group of people together, our photo booth adds entertainment and excitement to the event with crazy photo taking and memory making fun for everyone!

What makes your photo booth different from the others?
We are a studio style photo booth, which offers a selection of real backdrops to enhance the photos taken in The Booth.  Our photo booth provides a more interactive experience from the moment you enter the room to choose your props, striking the perfect pose (or not) to stepping on the foot pedal to take your picture – you’re the photographer!  The Booth has a more sophisticated, modern, chic, & stylish look and feel.  We use only high quality professional equipment and offer a live slideshow of photos to be projected on a screen or wall.  Photos are printed immediately to be enjoyed and shared.  We have a large selection of awesome accessories and props to choose from for all ages.

Why would I need a photo booth if I have already hired a photographer?
Professional photographers do an exceptional job capturing all the magical and special moments mostly centered around you at your event.   Our intention is to compliment your photographer by offering entertainment for you and your guests while capturing all the fun moments and then giving them the pictures to take home to remember your special event by.  Having The Booth at your event is a great memorable way to see who was at your party.

How does the photo booth work?
Pick a prop (optional), step in front of the backdrop, view yourself on the screen and strike a pose then follow the prompts.  When you’re ready, simply step on the foot pedal once to activate the shutter to take a series of 4 shots and print out a high quality 4” x 6” photo in seconds!

How much space do I need for the photo booth?
Preferably a 10′ x 10′ space (but we can make it work in an 8′ x 8′ space), one 8′ table for props, and a separate electrical outlet dedicated only for The Booth.

Do you have any suggestions as to how to make sure our guests take advantage of the photo booth?
Yes, ask your Emcee or DJ to let your guests know where the photo booth is located and that it is available to them for FREE.  We have a sign that we display by The Booth and you could also ask the venue if they could post a sign as well directing your guests to the photo booth area.
