YOU'RE HAVING A PAR-TAY!!! Eeeekkkkk :-)
I know photo booth shopping is kinda boring with all the "tech" lingo and bragging about booth features...so let me break it down for you:
- You have two choices: enclosed booth (like the kind with a curtain you see at the mall or arcade) or open-air booth (a camera/printer with a backdrop). Enclosed booths are only going to fit about 3 people max inside but because of the "privacy" inside, guests might do some crazier photos. Open-air booths allow as many as 10-15 in the photo frame but everyone can see what's going on. Open-air booth can be set up pretty much anywhere, but enclosed booths typically can not be transported over loose dirt, gravel, grass, etc because they weigh several hundred pounds.
- Any modern photo booth is going to include the basic features you'd expect...like unlimited prints accompanied by digital copies of all the photos taken, the ability to record video messages as well as take photos, the ability for guests to share their photos to their social media accounts (they push a few buttons on the photo booth screen, log-in to their FB/IG account, and post), a custom design for your photo strips (adding your event date, birthday girl's name, newlywed's initials, corporate logo, etc), the ability to do full-color, black & white photos, the choice of either 2" x 6" photo strips that print out in duplicate (perforated down the middle) or a standard 4" x 6" photo with a single or multiple images on it.
- There are some upgraded features you might pay more for: slow-motion videos, green screen (customized computer-created digital background), a "special" backdrop (like a gold sequin curtain vs. a black or white sheet), and "special" props (perhaps you're having a Western cowboy-themed party and only want country props)...regular assorted props like silly glasses and hats or mustaches on sticks are included standard.
So since all the booths are "basically" the same....deciding factors should be: price, company reputation, the vibe you get from whoever you talk to from the company :-)
Well, now that you have your PhD in photo booth shopping....I offer an open-air booth with all of the above listed features. I do not have any employees, so you will be working with me from planning the photo strip design to the last photo taken! I also offer: DJ service, uplighting, candy buffet, projector/screen for a slideshow, fog machine, dance floor lighting, custom monogram ("gobo") lights, cake pinspot lighting, and a Polaroid guestbook station.
