photo booth questions to ask any COMPANY BEFORE HIRING THEM

  • Can I see a portfolio or examples of your photos?
    • There are many low budget photo booth rentals out there.  Your event is important to you and you are spending money on a photo booth for your guests,  so why would you accept low quality photos?  A lot of things can ruin photos from budget equipment to poor lighting.  Any company that is not proudly displaying their photos for everyone to see probably has something to hide.  

 

  • What camera do you use? 

    • This is basically an extension of the above question.  The camera is obviously one of the biggest things that contributes to the overall quality of the photos.  We use Canon DSLR's in all of our booths which offer superior, professional quality photos.

 

  • Can we personalize or have or prints custom designed?
    • Adding a personal touch to your photos is great.  Having complete custom designed prints that matches your theme or brand?  Even better!  Custom print design is included in all of our printing packages.  You can see some examples of our print designs at the following link, but really, there are no limits to what we can create for you.  PHOTO BOOTH PRINT STRIP DESIGNS

 

  • How many prints are included in the price?
    • Many photo booth companies will include 2 print strips in the price of their rental and charge extra for unlimited strips.  PictureX includes unlimited print strips in all of our printing packages!  This means that if there are 10 people in a photo, we will print 10 print strips so everyone gets one.  

 

  • Can I see examples of your booth/set up?
    • To the same effect as photo quality, you are probably making sure your event looks perfect.  A clunky, old photo booth or an unorganized set-up can ruin the look you have spent time creating.  A clean, organized and modern look adds to the overall look and feel of your event.  We also have added branding options to fully blend into a branded or themed event.

 

  • What is included in the price?
    • You want to make sure that you will be receiving everything you need for your guests to receive the full photo booth experience.  There will obviously be some upgrades you can choose from, but having the booth, setup/tear down, props and a backdrop are necessities that should be included in and basic package.  

 

  • What is the quality of other equipment used?
    • The camera isn't the only thing that effects to quality of the photos.
      • Lighting is a huge factor and most of the time, continuous lighting is not enough to deliver clear, high quality photos.  A strobe photography flash 'freezes' the action and ensures that subjects are well lit.
      • The printer is important for a few different reasons.  Quality, speed and reliability.  Dye Sublimation printers are basically a standard for photo booths for all of the listed reasons.  We use a DNP DS620A in our main booth that is a top of the line event printer that is fast and efficient without sacrificing quality at all!  Our secondary booth uses a HiTi P510 Dye Sub Event Printer.
