Why rent a photo booth?

Having a photo booth at your event will be the ultimate hit and life of the party! Our photo booth provides a very unique and entertaining experience that everyone will enjoy from the moment they arrive. Just like many of our customers say “the least expensive and the best part of our event”.

Do you only do weddings?

Nope, we rocks all types of events! Our resume includes birthday parties of all ages, corporate events, product launches, holiday parties, galas, charity events, trade shows and conventions, bar/bat mitzvahs, graduations, proms…whatever you want.

Will you deliver to a private residence?

Absolutely! Photo booths are the perfect addition to baby showers, bar mitzvahs, graduations, and other house parties. Just make sure there are no stairs, a weatherproof cover, stable ground, and access to a power outlet.

What value does Photo Mirror add to my party?

They are incredibly fun and entertaining for your guests to use and they create amazing memories of your special event. As soon as your guests see that there is a magic mirror at your event, there is no stopping the fun. The possibilities are endless and everyone will remember your party because of it.

How long does it take to set up your photo booth?

Depending on location, layout of venue, number of rentals, and a few other factors – setup takes about 45-60 minutes.

That being said, we show up 2 hours before your party start time to ensure everything is perfect by the time you and your guests arrive.

How close to my event should I book?

Bookings are taken well in advance, therefore to secure your date we would advise you to book as soon as your event is confirmed. Keep in mind we are very busy during peak season and weekends. We will always try to accommodate last minute bookings depending on availability.

How big is the Mirror Photo Booth?

Our Mirror Photo Booth is about 5ft 9inches tall by 3ft wide.

The mirror is also tilted back slightly so it is super easy to check yourself out before a photo, easy to see the animations displayed on the mirror, and to capture guests who are taller than 5ft 9inches.

The camera is located behind the mirror – the orientation and tilt is adjustable to work in all situations!

How much space does the mirror take up?

The Mirror Photo Booth ENTIRE setup (mirror, red carpet, stanchions, backdrop, printer, prop table, etc) requires an 8ft x 8ft footprint.

However, if space is limited we can minimize the setup to work within smaller spaces – its very flexible and we’ve done it all over the years!

Access to a standard power outlet within 10-15 feet of the mirror photo booth is also required.

What makes your Photobooth stand apart from your competitors?

We are Wedding and Events Photographers. As Photographers we want the best picture quality and prints coming out of our booths, we used top notch real professional Full Frame Cameras, not consumer cameras, real Professional grade lenses and lighting to insure the best picture possible. Also, our booths have video mode and is available in most of our packages. We also have a variety of Professional Modern Backgrounds for you to choose from. We do our best to make sure your photos leave a lasting impression. Oh and let’s not forget about our props! We have the most fun props and props/signs! That’s how we stand out of the competition.

Can I view my photo before it prints? Can I redo without texting or printing?

Yes, you can include the ability to Retake your photo(s) before texting and/or printing your photos.

How long does it take to get a photo printed?

It takes about 10 seconds for the photo to be processed and printed. It’s super fast!

How is the quality of the photo print outs?

High resolution, crisp and pretty much amazing. If you want specifics, photos are printed using high speed Dye Sub printers at 300dpi. Each print takes about 10 seconds to print and it’s dry instantly.

What is required at the event venue?

A single standard wall outlet will suffice. We ask that power be within 30’ of the booth. Internet is completely optional and allows guests to text / email their photos to themselves.
