We’ve tried to answer the most commonly asked questions below, but if you can’t find the answer you are looking for, or have a more unusual request, please feel free to get in touch.
How good are your photos & prints?
They’re fantastic! We are professional photographers after all, so taking beautiful pictures is what we do best. David, who will be one of your Booth Attendants, has over 25 years experience as a Professional Photographer. Our booth is designed using the latest equipment, and comes complete with a Canon DSLR, with professional flash guaranteed to deliver high quality, high resolution images at all times. We use dye sublimation printers which are the best in the business. The prints are ready in seconds and instantly touch dry and water proof. They are also really durable and will not fade over time.
What colour is your photo booth?
Our photo booth is in a white/grey Chesterfield design, perfect for all occasions. It comes complete with a white linen curtain, so it’s neutral appearance will fit well into any setting. Branded photo booths can be supplied at an additional cost. Get in touch to find out more.
How much space will we need at our venue?
Our Booth requires a floor space of 2.3 m x 1.25 m and a ceiling height of 2.1 m. This booth is really compact, so there are few restrictions. All we ask is that suitable access is made available for getting the booth into the venue. We are happy to liaise with the venue on your behalf to arrange the best place for the booth to go, as well as finalize set up and break down times.
Can your photo booth go outside?
Our photo booth requires a covered location as electricity and water don’t mix and you can never guarantee the British weather! They are absolutely fine in a marquee as long as there is a relatively flat, solid floor and power for a normal 13 amp socket.
How many people can fit inside your photo booth?
You won’t find a seat in our Photo Booth, just plenty of space to move about and strike that killer pose! As a result more people can fit inside and your pictures end up looking far more spontaneous. Our Booth is one of the most spacious booths available and easily accomodates between 5 and 7 guests!
Do you supply a props box?
We offer a free dressing up box with all of our packages, full of stylish props. We carry an eclectic range of weird and wonderful accessories including hats, glasses, masks, moustaches and lips on sticks, and general silliness! If you want any particular props for your event, please get in touch and we will be happy to source them for you.
Who looks after the photo booth?
We always have two polite and friendly trained members of staff attend your event, who will take care of everything for you and show your guests how to operate the booth.
What about insurance and safety?
All professional photo booth companies must carry public liability insurance and we are no exception. All of our equipment is PAT tested to ensure meeting the Health & Safety requirements of your venue. We can supply this upon request. You can view our Public Liability Insurance certificate here.
How long does it take to set up your photo booth?
We like to give ourselves at least 90 minutes to set up our Booth. We always travel with plenty of contingency time as well.
Can you set up the photo booth earlier and return to run it later?
Should you require an earlier set up, prior to your guests arriving, or before dinner for example, we will try our best to accommodate you. This may be subject to an additional charge depending on the number of increased hours, but contact us for a quote if you are unsure about this.
How long do we get to use the photo booth for?
Our standard booth run time is 3 hours, but additional hours can be added to your package at a cost of £85 per hour, or £45 for half an hour.
How many photos are included during the hire time?
We offer unlimited photos and prints for the duration of the hire time. This means that your guests can have as many turns in the booth as they like, and receive two prints per turn. As fast as your guests can strike a pose, the booth will produce the prints!
How big are the prints?
Our prints measure 6″ x 2″ (strip prints), however we can offer an upgrade to 6″x 4″ for £35.
Can we have colour or black and white prints?
You can choose whether to have colour or black and white prints, but not a combination of the two.
Can we personalise our prints?
We can add a logo or message to your prints. Just tell us at the time of booking.
Do we get a digital copy of the pictures taken in the booth?
You will receive a DVD with all of the photos taken in full resolution, as well as all of the templates, at the end of the event hire period.
Can our guests view the images after the event?
Yes, 24 hours after your event we create a password protected online gallery for you and your guests to view the images. This facility also allows you to download unlimited digital copies of the images at no extra cost.
What is the Facebook upload option?
You have the option to have all of your event photos uploaded to Facebook after your event, so that your guests can tag themselves and share the images with their friends. It’s entirely up to you whether you would like us to do this for you, just let us know your preference at the time of booking.
How does the guest book option work?
We set the photo booth up to print 2 copies of each print, 1 for your guests and 1 for your guest book. We assemble the book for you at your event and encourage your guests to leave messages beside their prints. We always ensure your book is completed to a high standard and will hand deliver it to you at the end of your photo booth hire.
What is the video messaging option all about?
Our photo booth is also a video booth and can record video messages, which will be included on your DVD at the end of the night, however for this to work effectively the booth needs to be away from any music.
How much do your photo booths cost to hire?
Our hire prices start from as little as £150!
How far do you travel and how much do you charge?
We are based in Basildon, Essex and cover the entire South East, as well as the rest of the UK. Travel is free within 50 miles of our base. We then charge 50p/mile after that. Contact us with the postcode of your venue for an accurate quote.
How can I be sure you will turn up to my event?
We pride ourselves in our honesty and professionalism, but we understand you may be reluctant to pay all that money and hope we turn up. By reading our Terms and Conditions you will see that this is a legally binding contract between both parties, and as such you are covered when you book. We carry full Public Liability Insurance as well for your peace of mind.
