At Prop-A-Razzi Photo Booths, we understand that not everyone has used or rented a photo booth before. That’s why we’ve put together these commonly-asked questions that will assist you when deciding on adding a booth to your next event. Don’t see your question here? Please contact us so that we can better assist you.
Got Questions? We Have Answers.
How large is your photo booth?
Typically, the footprint of our photo booth is 5′x 5′ with a 9′ height; however, you can also opt for an “open air” booth that does not consist of a canopy and therefore takes about half that space. If you have a concern about a particular space, let us know. It is preferable to operate in spaces with a 10’ height clearance, but 9′ is the absolute minimum for the canopy. For the open air setup, only 6′ is needed.
What is needed to operate the booth?
All we ask for proper booth operation is adequate space and a working 110V power outlet near the booth. Should there be issues with placement of the booth, please let us know in advance if you need it to be placed further than 25′ away from an outlet.
Will there be anyone running the booth?
All of our packages come with a full-time photo booth attendant who will be setting up, maintaining and taking down the booth at the end of the allotted time. During your event, he or she will assist guests with props, adjusting the camera, changing the paper/ink (if needed) and encouraging passerby’s to use it. They’re fun, engaged and may even be the life of the party as more guests become involved with the booth.
How are photos taken?
As guests enter the photo booth, they will be greeted by an interactive touchscreen where they can choose from six different filters and adjust their appearance with the screen as it gives them a live view of themselves. Once ready, the attendant will then start the process where guests will be asked to look at the camera. Depending on the layout chosen, anywhere from one to four photos will be taken at 5-second intervals, allowing everyone to change props and poses if need be.
How long do prints take?
A set of two 2”x 6” photo strips or one 4″ x 6″ print will take approximately 10-15 seconds.
Do you offer a scrapbook?
For a nominal fee, we offer a scrapbook for your guests to leave a memento for you at the event. We will provide the album, markers/pens and glue to make the scrapbook. We will also provide an additional attendant to manage the scrapbook area. At the end of your event the scrapbook will be given to the elected person in charge as well as the digital media on a CD.
Is there a limit to how many photos a guest can take?
There’s no limit to the number of sessions your guests can enjoy and we make sure that every guest gets a copy if they so desire. We do complimentary reprints for all of our events in the off chance that they may have lost their print. So long as the photo booth is there, guests can utilize it as much as they’d like, provided they allow other guests who may not have used the booth yet to enter first as common courtesy.
Do I get a copy of all the photos taken?
At the end of your event, the attendant will create either a DVD or provide a USB flash drive of all photos taken and hand it to you or the coordinator of the event. Photos can then be reprinted at the convenience of your own home, emailed or reprinted at a photo developing station/store.
Can photos be customized?
Absolutely. We can design a custom overly with any custom text and graphics you prefer, such as event information, sponsor logo, promotional branding elements and more. Our graphic designers can either incorporate an existing logo/design you provide or we can create a fresh design for you free of charge.
Can the photo booth be used outdoors?
For the safety and well-being of our guests, we would prefer the booth be kept indoors as inclement weather, bugs and heat can affect the booth’s operation. However, the photo booth can be set up outside so long as there is an 110V outlet or direct current available. At this time, we do not allow for third-party generators as we have tested a set of generators that we can rent to you to operate the booth. If you know in advance that the event will be outdoors, please let us know so that we can ensure our attendants are dressed for the occasion and that plans can be made in case it needs to be set indoors (such as high winds, an oncoming storm, etc.)
What is the average time to setup and break down the booth?
A typical setup and breakdown can be done as quickly as 10-15 minutes. Factors such as parking, a lack of a coordinator/event person to designate where the booth will be placed and a non-working outlet can affect setup times. So long as we know where the booth will be located, we can guarantee a quick setup.
I am an active military/veteran/non-profit. Do you offer any discounts?
Yes, we do. As long as you provide proof of active/prior military status of yourself or a close relative, we can provide a 10% discount. For charity/non-profit events, you are more than welcome to contact us directly for such inquiries as we can typically arrange for something as scheduling permits on a case-by-case basis.
Can guests share their photos to Facebook, Twitter, etc.?
Absolutely! As long as there is either an available wireless network or you opt for our Wi-Fi hotspot, guests can not only have their photos printed but they can also share their pics via Facebook, Twitter, Email or Text Message. The attendant will be able to assist with operating the feature. Keep in mind that larger events may want to opt for Email and Text-Only as some users may not remember their login information, holding the line for others who may want to use it. Once sent via email/text, guests are more than welcomed to share their photos via Instagram, Facebook and any other site they may use.
