FAQ

How does the booth work?

Step inside, when you are ready, our on-site attendant will start your photo shoot.
The booth will show a video preview so that you can strike the perfect pose with a
5 second countdown before each photo. It will automatically take 4 consecutive photos,
and about 30 seconds later your print is ready!

I have never seen an attended photo booth at an event, what can I expect?

A photo booth really brings out the fun side of the guests. Our experience is that people of all ages enjoy their time in the booth, not only younger generations. It is also the simplest means for creating tangible memories that you and your guests will get a copy of.

What style is your booth?

Our booth is an Open Air style. This allows our booth to handle 15 – 20 people at once with no problem. An open air style draws 30% more participation than an enclosed booth. Wait times are much shorted because of easy access. People with disabilities like the elderly have no issues in using this type of booth. The booth is part of the entertainment for those sitting nearby.

In what format do the pictures print?

We have two options to choose from.


4 x 6 image

One is a 4×6 print with a custom design to suit the theme of the event.

The other is a photo strip similar to what would print in an automated photo booth like the ones found in malls.
All orders with strips come with 100 plastic insert sleeves to be given out with the pictures. These make for great bookmarkers.

What is the difference between choosing the photo strip or the 4”x6”?

This really is a matter of preference. With either option, you will receive a DVD copy of all the pictures. The photo strip option prints two copies of a photo session, which you can choose to give both away to the guests, or if you choose the scrapbook option, one copy for the guest and one copy for your scrapbook. The 4”x6” option can be customized to include a design with event information. You can choose to add the name of the occasion and the date in the layout. The 4”x6” is also well-suited for corporate clients who book the photo booth for promotions and want the custom design to include their logo.

How does the scrapbook option work?

If you select our ‘scrapbook’ option: During your event, we’ll put a copy of each photo
strip into a 12″ X 12″ album for you. Your guests will have an opportunity to write a
message. By the end of the night, you’ll have a beautiful keepsake of your event!
If you are willing to wait a week for the book, we will have it professionally scrapbooked
to make it a perfect keepsake.

What about a scrapbook option for the 4”x6” prints?

This option is available. It is included in the GALA package. For other packages, you must add-on the “scrapbook” and “double prints” options.
