Q: Why should you have a photo booth at your event?
A: You will be left with precious memories from your photo booth hire, that you simply wouldn't have from normal reception photography. Our photo booth is enclosed, your guests let their guard down a bit and this leads to hilarious photos. We are often asked, will the older people join in or will it just be the children – well we can assure you that our photo booth hire attracts people of all ages.
Q: How does a photo booth work?
A: We have made the booth as simple to use as possible because, let's face it, after a few drinks there aren't many of us in a fit state to operate all kinds of buttons and knobs. Once we're set up and ready to go, your guests enter the photo booth, either on their own or in a group, and take a seat in front of the camera. Below the camera is a large touch screen monitor with on screen instructions. Your guests tap the screen and the booth will countdown from 3,2,1...and take the photo. It will take 4 photos in total - don't worry, there is a pause between each shot so you can move around or change hats and see how you looked in the previous photo. Once the photo's have been taken the print will come out in around 16 seconds in one of many pre-arranged layouts. For weddings we print a minimum of 2 copies of each sitting, one for your guest to take away with them and one that we put into a guestbook where we encourage your guests to leave a congratulatory message. For corporate and other events we can offer on screen choices of style as well as duplicates and other features to enhance your brand.
Q: Do my guests have to pay to use the booth?
A: No! Absolutely not. Our photo booth rental is all inclusive* which includes unlimited free photographs throughout the duration of the hire.
Q: What is included in the photo booth hire cost?
A: We aim to provide an all inclusive package so that you don't have to worry about any little extras or things not being provided on the night. As standard we include unlimited use with all photos free throughout the duration of the hire. The props box, duplicate prints, photo guest book for weddings/birthdays, booth attendants, upload to our online gallery ready for your friends to tag on facebook, choice of layout. The travel*, setup and takedown of the booth are also all included in the cost of the hire. We also offer a number of optional additions to enhance your party such as keyrings, additional hours use, custom branding etc.
Q: How much space do you need?
A: The photo booth itself measures approximately 6.5 ft high x 4 ft wide x 6ft long. We would need a little more room to manoeuvre and setup the booth. Additionally, we would require enough space to utilise a small table for your guest book or promotional material. The booth has entrances on both sides so is able to be situated against a wall or in a corner. Please bear in mind any health and safety issues with people crowding around the booth. Likewise, the closer the access to the venue entrance we are able to utilise the faster we can unpack and setup without disturbing your guests. Our booth comes down into a number of pieces for transportation, the longest of which is a 7ft metal frame as such a suitable route to the event room is required.
Q: What do you need at the venue?
A: We will require one mains socket close to the booth. A point of contact at the venue is also useful for us to liaise with.
Q: How long does the booth take to setup?
A: The photo booth generally takes about 1 hour to 1 1/2 hours to setup completely depending on location, access and staff. We are more than happy to discuss idle time, so if you need the booth set up before your guests arrive, maybe 5pm, ready to run from 7-10pm then that isn't a problem. Please note there may be a small charge for idle time.
Q: Do you stay with the booth for the duration?
A: We personally attend, 1 - 2 booth attendants to stay with the booth throughout the duration of the your hire to help keep things running smoothly. Often we will utilise one member of staff to aid the guests and one member of staff to man the guest book if present.
Q: Do you charge for mileage?
A: If your event is within 20 miles of base - Birmingham B30 3PS - then all of the travel is included. For events over 20 miles there is a small surcharge of 40 pence per mile to cover the extra fuel.
Q: Do you have insurance?
A:Absolutely! We have public liability insurance. All of our electrical equipment has been PAT tested to conform to EU safety regulations.
Q: How many people can fit in the booth?
A: Depending on the build, we recommend no more than 4-6 people in at any one time. Whilst it is possible to get up to 8 people into the booth, not every face can be seen - particularly amongst an array of hats and wigs!
