I already have a photographer, should we still get a Photo Booth?
Of course! A photo booth is not meant to replace your main photographer. Whether you chose Shots and Giggles or another company, a photo booth is always a great addition to any event. It allows your guests control over which photos they want to take as well as gives them something to take with them to remember the day.
What is the best time to start?
In our experience we have found that photo booth will become more and more popular as the event progresses. We recommend starting after dinner/speeches to avoid interruptions and distractions.
How many hours should we book?
For every 50-75 guests you should be booking 1 hour depending on the type of event and your guests. You should plan on the photo booth shutting down at the same time as your event does so you do not have disappointed guests at the end who may have missed out.
Can I bring my own props?
Sure! Just let us know ahead of time so we can make sure they do not get mixed up with the ones we supply.
How many people can fit in the photo booth?
Typical maximum is between 8-10 people, but you’re welcome to try for more!
How long does each photo take?
Depending on the format you select, a photo can take anywhere from 10 seconds to 1 minute. 4×6″ prints take approximately 14 seconds to print once the photo has been taken.
Does each person in the photo get their own copy?
We try our best to accommodate your guests by providing a printed copy for each person in the shot. In the event that there is a high volume of traffic, we will ask your guests to return at a later time to ask for reprints during a slower period.
Where is the best location for the Photo Booth?
The best place for the photo booth would be in high traffic areas, such as by main entrances or close to the bar. You should also try and give your guests ample room for them to line up and try on costumes and props.
What is required from the venue?
At least one 6′ rectangular table, two chairs and access to an electrical outlet (at least 15 amps).
We will also require a minimum 10′ x 10′ area.
Access to the venue for setup at least one hours ahead of the start of the vent is also recommended to avoid any disruption to your guests.
How do we get the pictures?
All the photos will be hosted on an online gallery which can be password protected. The link will be provided so you and all your guests can retrieve digital copies of their photos. You will also be provided a DVD containing all the high resolution copies of each photo.
What type of printer do you use?
We use professional grade dye-sublimation printers. The photos come out of the printer completely dry and ready to be handled by hand. The quality of the photos is comparable to those from professional lab and will not smear, smudge or fade.
Can the Photo Booth bet setup outside?
The Photo Booth can be setup for outdoor events weather permitting. Depending on the time of day, the lighting conditions may also not be optimal.
