  • What do I need to reserve a photo booth for my event?
    A $500 non-refundable reservation fee is required with a signed contract, and the remaining balance is due 10 days prior to the event. If the event is less than 10 days away, then it’s due at the time of booking. We accept cash, check, PayPal, and credit card. 

  • What if I’m not sure which options I want yet?
    That’s fine! The important thing to do is get the reservation made, so we can block off the date for you. We can go over the options at any point in time prior to your event. 

  • Do you offer various print layouts and designs?
    Yes! View our Private Event Samples and our Brand Building Samplesfrom past events. The layouts are fully customizable and our graphic designer constructs a brand new print-out design specific for your event.  We'll use your invitations, theme, colors, and text as a reference during the design process.  The design process will begin 1 month prior to the date of your event.  No other photo booth company offers a complete design (from scratch) as seen in our gallery links above!
  • Can I design my own print-out? In order to preserve the quality of our work and to give our clients the best possible artwork on their print-outs ... we do not allow clients to do their own designs.  Multiple files need to be produced for each event.  However, we can work with whatever artwork you are using for the event and we can work with any file type as long as they are of good quality. 
  • How long does it take to set up a photo booth?
    It generally takes 45 minutes, but we arrive 2 hours ahead of the photo booth start-time to ensure everything is ready to go for the very first guest. You do not pay for the time we arrive prior to the start time of the booth.  For example, if you wanted to start the booth at 6pm, we would come at 4pm to begin setup and you do not pay 4pm-6pm.

  • Can you set up more than 2 hours before the event?
    Yes. Normally we arrive 2 hours before the event but upon request we can set up even earlier. However, the fee is $50 per hour for this “idle time.”  It's not a noisy process to set up but we bring in numerous cases and parts.  Once setup is complete our attendant will change into formal attire.  You can also purchase these idle hours in the case that you want to turn off the photo booth in the middle of your event.  

  • How much room is needed for the entire photo booth area?
    Ideally the booth could use a 10’x12’ allotted space with a power outlet within 25 feet.  Our photo booth can squeeze in even smaller spaces - if needed - which allows us to stay closer to the action of the event!  The smallest space we've taken up so far is 6.5' wide by 10' deep and that was still a great amount of room for group shots and a props table!

  • How many people fit in a picture?
    18 is currently the record!

  • How far do you travel?
    We travel within 60 miles of Washington, DC (zip code 20036). Outside of that area, we charge 50 cents per mile each way.

  • How quickly can I receive the pictures from my event?
    Within 24 hours of your event you will receive a link to your digital photo gallery and you can download all of your pictures. You'll receive all the digital versions of your print-outs as well as all the individual digital pictures that make-up those print-outs. You can also have the high resolution photos/videos mailed to you for $20 per flash-drive (usually they all fit on just one flash drive). 

  • Can you provide services for an outdoor event?
    Yes, we've done numerous outdoor events (check out our blog post about Outdoor Events).  Usually a tent (10'x10' or 10'x20') with 3 walls, tie-down straps and water/cement barrels securing it to the ground will have to be provided should there be any chance of precipitation or winds during the day of the event. A generator will also need to be available for our use.  We can provide all of the above (at an extra charge). 

  • Do you have liability insurance?
    We sure do! We are happy to provide you or the venue with the certificate.
