Our Photo booth is set up just like a photography studio with studio lighting and a very high-end DSLR camera facing the professional backdrop and your guests simply stand in front of the camera. We have the ability to zoom in and out of every picture so we can accommodate bigger groups than other boxed-booths. If you’re renting our photo booth for a Wedding or Quinceneara, we can also get more of your dress than most other photo booth companies! We have fit as many as 6-10 people into our photo booth pictures at once!
First your guests will choose the photo booth props they would like to use during their picture session. We fill a whole table with fun props that include but are not limited to, hats, silly sunglasses, boas, masks, pretty hand fans, umbrellas and more! Once they choose their props, they stand in front of the backdrop facing the camera. They will also be facing a monitor that they can see themselves in. Once they are centered in the screen and in the position or pose they choose, our photo booth attendant will click the button to begin the photo session. Your guests will get 4 different picture poses and they have 5 seconds in between each in order to change their pose or swap out props. Our photo booth attendants count down for them and assist in helping them in any way needed during their session. Its a riot to see your guests having a blast, laughing at each other and showing their individual creative ways of using props and posing for their photos. Once all 4 photos are done, their picture strip prints out in less than 10 seconds. Normally we already have another group taking photos and the cycle starts all over again.
Our photo booth is based in a city called Potrero Hill in San Francisco. We travel to any event within 30 miles of our home office and we do travel as far as 50 miles away but in that case, a travel fee may apply. The most popular cities we send out photo booth to include but are not limited to, South San Francisco, Oakland, Daly City, Union City, Emeryville, Redwood City, Walnut Creek, San Rafael, San Leandro, Pacifica, Burlingame, Larkspur, Windsor, Berkley, El Cerrito, San Bruno, Mill Valley, Alameda, Tiburon, Sausalito and more!
We have the ability to customize the size of our photo booth depending on the amount of room you have available but our normal photo booth set up is approximately 6′ wide x 6′ long x 8′ tall and requires a normal 110v electrical outlet. We always need extra room for the photo booth attendant and necessary extra items (props, scrapbook station, etc).
We do not limit the amount of times that each of your guests can take photos in our photo booth. It brings us great joy to see your guests having so much fun with our photo booth so if any one of your guests wants to take 5 different photo sessions, we are happy to see them do that and will never discourage that! People often like to take photos with their family and then friends and then solo and they love doing photo sessions with different props too! That is what our photo booth is for! Also, when it comes to printing photos, most photo booth companies limit the amount that is printed to only the original 2 copies and then charge more later for additional prints. We don’t do this. We will print up to 4 photos for your guests and any additional to that will be able to share and save the pictures from the album we post online after the event for free. If you would like to have an unlimited amount of photos printed during the event, let us know and we can give you the upgraded pricing to add this feature to your photo booth rental package.
In most cases, each picture session takes on average about 3 minutes per session but this is dependent on how long it takes your guests to pick their photo booth props and get situated. Bigger groups take longer and sometimes some guests are pro’s and are even quicker than 3 minutes.
Our photo booth attendants will need to get to your event 30 minutes prior to when you want the photo booth to start taking photos. So if you would like the photo booth to start at 5:30pm, they would arrive at 5pm. The same goes with tear down. It will take them 20-30 mins to tear the photo booth down.
Yes! After your event, we upload every picture strip INCLUDING the individual high-resolution photos for each picture to an album online that you can share with your guests in order for them to tag, like, share and save the ones they want. We can also send you a picture cd so you will always have the photos for memories later! If you particularly love one of the four pictures that was a part of your or one of your guests’photo session, the pictures are such good quality that you would be able to blow it up to any size you want! You never know if your grandparents get in the booth and take a kiss-ey picture that you want to surprise them with later as a gift. 😉
Once you know the day and time you would like to book our photo booth, we will get all of the information for the event in our online calendar and collect a deposit of $150 that can be paid with paypal, by giving us a card right over the phone (which is run through our square app) or you can mail a check. We require 2.5% fee when using paypal, a 3.5% fee when using square and if you mail a check, you avoid any additional fee. The fee would only be added to the amount being placed on the card, not the full amount unless the booth is being paid for in full with the card or paypal. The deposit MUST be paid within 1 week of the booking but if there is a special circumstance, just let us know and we can make notations in the calendar based on our arrangements.
If you would like a scrapbook to be created during your photo booth rental, there are two ways to do this. For the most affordable option, we can use one of the 4 photos that we already print and set it aside on the scrap book table for your guests to add to your pages. We provide the scrapbook, pens a few stickers and glue sticks and only charge an additional $50 for this option for the supplies and the extra time it takes the photo booth attendants to manage that along with the prop table and the booth. The other option is to pay an additional fee to print an extra print of every photo session (on top of the 4 already printed) that would be added to the scrap book table with all the same supplies. Adding a scrapbook to your photo booth rental is a very popular addition for Weddings, Anniversary Celebrations and Quinceanera’s but this would be great for ANY event!
