Why rent a photo booth?
Having a photo booth at your event will be the hit of the party! Awesome photo booths provide an entertaining experience that everyone will enjoy! The photo booth print your guests take home will serve as a great memory and party favor of your event.
What are the dimensions of the photo booth?
The booth itself is adjustable. We can be as small as 6 ft x 6 ft or as large as 10 ft x 10 ft, with a height of 7 ft. Additional space is required for a table for props. Generally speaking, we would need 15 ft x 15 ft area for the booth.
How many people can fit in the photo booth?
On average, five to six people can fit comfortably in the booth. We have experienced 8-10 people in the booth at one time. Our record is 18!
Do you use a closed booth or an open-air photo booth?
We offer 2 styles of booths, an open backdrop or our enclosed booth, meaning there are four walls around the photo booth. Our enclosed booth is available as a curtain enclosed or our LED lighted Inflatable booth.
Does the photo booth print out photos immediately?
Yes, we always print your photos! Your Photo Booth print is a very important part of the fun and Awesome Booth prints your photos every time! After your guests leave the photo booth, their pictures will be ready in about 15 seconds. Our high resolution prints are high gloss and excellent quality.
How many copies of the photo strip do we get when we take a photo?
Everyone who is in the photo gets a photo. It’s not really a photo booth if you don’t have the photo strip to take home. Plus, you can always text, email or download additional prints from the online event gallery.
What types of events are photo booths used at?
A photo booth makes an awesome addition to any event. We recommend it for events such as wedding receptions, birthday parties, proms, school dances, graduation parties, anniversaries, fundraisers, sporting functions, corporate events, Holiday Christmas party, or any party!
How does the photo booth work?
Enter the booth, grab a prop, push the button, smile and strike a pose, the booth will take your picture. Preview your photos on the monitor inside the booth. And just 30 seconds later the photos are printed and available outside the photo booth.
Is the photo booth easy to use?
The photo booth is very easy to use. Our photo booth attendants are there to get you started on each session, and we even push the start button for you! A viewing screen will give a 5-second countdown before each consecutive picture is taken. The screen counts down between each photo shot, so you can’t miss your cue to smile! In less than 30 seconds, your guests will receive a printout of their picture outside the booth. And don’t forget, our booth attendant is always there to answer any of your questions.
Do the guests have to pay to use it?
No, we do not charge any guests for photos. Included in your rental is unlimited use of the photo booth.
How many images can we take during our event?
Take as many photos as you like for just one rental price. Realistically, you will be able to take about around 30-40 photo booth sessions (3-4 photos each) per hour. It all depends on how long your guests have “fun” inside the booth. We offer unlimited photo booth session during our rental time.
Do you just drop off the photo booth at the event?
No, a professional staff member will stay with the booth throughout your event. We make sure everything is running smoothly and assist guests in using the booth. You do not need to worry about delivery, set-up, operation, or take down. We greet the guests, tell them where to look, push the button to get you started and even hand out your final photo strips.
Do you have any props for guests to use while taking pictures?
Yes! We have fun hats, glasses, and signs to add to the fun of your event. Of course, it is your option to use them or not. For some events, like weddings and other more formal events, having props can sometimes take away from the “formal” setting of an event and the classic feel of a photo booth. We also offer themed props packages also, just ask!
Can we personalize the photo strip for our event?
Yes! You can absolutely customize the photo strips. For example, weddings we can add the Bride and Groom’s name and wedding date. For corporate events, we can use your logo and design with complimentary colors or customize for the theme of your event.
What is a Memory book?
A Memory Book is a photo album that will contain a copy of each of your photo booth strip prints from the event, handwritten notes by your guests and many mementos of your event. It’s a photo guest book of your guests photos from the photo booth. Each photo from the event is in the booth and guests are welcome to sign next to it and or offer any comments. Your memory book is yours at the end of the event and can bring back so many fun memories of your event.
What type of camera and printer do you use in the photo Booth?
Our photo booths are equipped with Canon DLSR cameras. The images are printed on a high-quality dye-sublimation thermal printer.
Does the background of the photo booth come in different colors?
Yes. Our standard booth background is white velvet, which provides an elegant look for any event. Other backdrop choices include light blue velvet, black, gold, rose gold or silver sequins. You can also view our more themed* backdrops on our website.
*Upgraded backdrops available as an add-on.
What if guest wants additional photos?
Your guests can download additional prints through our Online Event Gallery* on our website.
What if I want more than one copy of the same photo? Can I get copies of all the photos from my event?
You have several options. All the photos from your event can be saved on a USB* drive and given to the photo booth host. An Online Event Gallery* is also posted on our website following the event and you and your guests can download additional copies from the website.
*USB drive and Online Event Gallery is available as an add-on option.
Where do you typically setup the booth?
We like to see the booth in the main reception area, somewhat near the dance floor so guests are sure to stop by. However, we work with each event host to place the booth according to their specifications, decorations and traffic flow for each event.
Do you have any suggestion on how to make sure that all guest use the photo booth as many times as they would like?
We recommend placing your photo booth in plain site near your main event area, so your guests see it. You can also have your MC or DJ make an announcement or two inviting your guests to check out the photo booth. Once the fun and laughter start, many people will be in line to get a piece of this fun activity!
Can the photo booth be used at any venue? (What if the event is on the third floor of a building?)
The booth can be broken down for easy transportation to any venue, however we do require an elevator if there are more than 5-steps to a different level. We do recommend an air-conditioned venue for summer events.
Can you accommodate outdoor events?
While we do not prefer to do outdoor events because of the uncertainty of the weather and how it affects our equipment, please contact us and we will see if we can work with you to accommodate the outdoor event. Each outdoor event will be held at the discretion of the Awesome Entertainment staff. Extra equipment insurance may also apply to your fees.
Is a special electrical outlet necessary?
No, a standard 120V electrical outlet located within 30 feet of the photo booth is all that is needed.
What size photos will we receive?
The traditional photo booth strip with 3-4 pictures is our most common choice and measures 2 x 6 inches. You can upgrade your print to a 4 x 6 inch for an additional charge.
