PhotoBoothz Frequent Questions
Photo booths make a great addition to any party or event, especially weddings / civil partnership celebrations or leaving parties where our video dedications feature comes into its own to create memories that last forever.
If you'd like a quote or more information then feel free to get in touch.
What colour are your photo booths?
They come in a stylish glossy black finish which fits with most venues. Optionally we can theme or brand your booth as required.
How long does the booth run for?
We offer a range of packages starting with a 2-hour booth hire, which is usually adequate for most evening events, however additional time can be purchased.
Who looks after the booth?
One of our trained operators will remain on-site for the duration of the hire to assist with operation, provide fun props (if required) and answer any questions.
Are you insured?
We carry £5m public liability insurance and £10m employers' liability insurance. Certificates are available on request.
How many people can fit in the booth?
A maximium of 5 people at a time - 3 seated and 2 more in front - although ideally 1-3 people.
Can we have the booth set up earlier in the day to avoid disruption?
We can arrange an early setup of the booth but additional costs may be incurred. Contact us with your plans and we'll see what we can do.
Delivery and Installation
How much space is required?
All we need is a flat, level indoor surface 2.3m wide by 1.25m deep and 2.1m high (approx. 7ft x 4ft x 6ft) and access to a standard 13 amp mains socket within 25m.
The booth needs to be sited around 1m from a wall to allow the booth to be built, and you need to allow standing room for guests to socialise, try on props and queue for the booth.
How long does setup take?
Setup takes around 45 minutes once the booth has been delivered to the setup area. We usually allow 90 minutes to be on the safe side. This does not come out of your time allowance!
My venue have requested a risk assessment and a PAT certificate!
We are happy to provide copies of the relevant documentation to satisfy your venue. We do this on a regular basis and do not foresee any problems which would preclude you using one of our booths in any typical celebration venue.
Photographs and Video
What quality are the photos?
All photographs are high quality digital images printed onto commercial dye-sublimination printers which dry instantly and are durable, fade and damage resistant.
What are the printing choices for the photos?
Our new touch-screen system allows the user to choose between black & white, colour or sepia/antique effect photos for each sitting.
Can we record a video message?
If your host has taken the appropriate package or video upgrade, then yes! All video clips are presented to the party host or organiser on a USB drive after the event. We can arrange to upload them to Dropbox.
Do we get to keep the pictures / videos?
The party host or organiser will receive all of the pictures and video on a USB drive after the event. We can arrange to upload them to Dropbox.
Can we view the images online?
If the party host or organiser agrees, we will upload your pictures to Facebook, or a site with a private link. Reprints may also be made available to purchase.
How many photos are included?
During the hire you may take unlimited photos. Guests may return to the booth as often as they like. The number of prints available depends on the package your host has chosen - see our full PRICE LIST for more details.
Optional Extras & Upgrades
Do you supply props for us to use?
If the host agrees, we will provide free fun dressing-up props including hats, wigs, spectacles and inflatables. We can also offer themed props to coincide with a party theme, for example Hallowe'en or Christmas.
As the host, can I have my own set of prints?
We can arrange for an extra set of all of the prints produced on the night to be handed to you in a presentation album. Alternatively, if you'd just like a few select prints, you can order these online.
Can we hire the booth for longer than 3 operating hours?
We find that 3 hours is optimimum for the majority of parties and events, however if arranged in advance we can arrange extra hours at £100 per hour or part thereof.
Can we customise the booth, for example for a corporate event or product launch?
This can usually be arranged in advance - contact us to discuss your plans and we'll tell you what can be done.
