Photo Booth Blog
Photo Booths have evolved over the past years, and one of the latest trends is an inflatable photo booth.
The cube enclosure with LED lights is the most popular model.
The Igloo is white with LED lights on the outside and Black in the inside.
The LED Wall is white with LED lights on the outside and can accommodate large groups.
Usually the cheapest option isn’t the best one. “You get what you pay” for is a popular phrase, and this especially applies when hiring a photo booth company.
Here are some things to look at when hiring a Photo Booth Company.
What kind of Booth are you getting?
Is it a camera on a tripod or professionally built photo booth?
What kind of Camera are they using?
What kind of lighting are they using?
Do there pictures look nice and clear?
What kind of backdrop choices do they have?
Does their setup look professional and add to the ambiance of the party?
What kind of printer are they using?
What do their templates look like?
How fast will they post your digital pictures after the event?
Will they provide you with excellent customer service?
What kind of props do they offer if any?
Will your booth be up and running by the time that you want?
Will they send an inexperienced college kid to your event and pass them off as a professional?
If something goes wrong at the event, would they know how to fix it?
Do they understand photography and how light works?
Do they have liability insurance in case of an accident? Some venues require vendor insurance.
Who have they worked with in the past?
Are they capable of handling large events with 500 + people or do they mostly do small backyard parties?
These are just a few questions that you should be asking before hiring a photo booth.
I have heard recently from talking with people that there some photo booth scams out there offering a ridiculously low priced rental price. They ask for all the money upfront via a PayPal account, and then take the money and run.
This also goes for hiring photographers too. I have heard many stories about photographers not delivering their images after an event, even after a year.
Here is an article to read about why you are doing yourself a disservice by hiring a cheap and low quality booth.
Photo Booths with Social Media Integration
In addition to better props (think: vintage finds rather than dollar-store pickups), photo booths are going high-tech, with touch screens and Wi-Fi, allowing guests to immediately upload photos to social media, says Matthew Lee of Cly Creation. Why wait until tomorrow to upload photo-booth snaps when it can be done instantly?
