There are so many companies, features, and booths to choose from! How can you possibly narrow them down?

Before you decide to just hire the cheapest one, read through this question list. Even more important than price is finding a great company to work with. How a photo booth company does business, how they treat you, and the attention they put into the experience will speak volumes more than a number on a quote form.
 

1. Are you licensed and insured?
If you’re taking the time to hire a photo booth company, you should be careful not to hire someone who’s just doing this as a hobby. A lot can go wrong at a formal event and you want to make sure your photo booth company is prepared to handle it.

Some companies offer an upgraded tablet as their only photo booth. While there’s nothing wrong with that, there’s a big difference between someone who just buys a bunch of iPads and someone who takes the time to invest in high-quality, professional photo booths.

A truly professional photo booth vendor will have a variety of different photo booth types for every kind of client and event.
 

3. What’s included?
With photo booths, as with most things, you get what you pay for. A photo booth company with a rock-bottom deal might charge extra for stuff you’d expect to be included, like props, a backdrop, or prints. With every company you interview, make sure they are clear about what their price includes.

  • How many hours of service?
  • Is setup/tear down included?
  • Will you bring props? a prop table?
  • Does it include a backdrop?
  • Will you get copies of all the photos taken?

The last thing you want is any unpleasant surprises on the big day.
 

4. What features do the photo booths have?
Photo booths are not the same as they were in the ’80s. Modern day photo booths offer different size prints, digital images, social sharing, even video messaging! If you are dead set on a model that makes animated gifs, for example, this is something you’ll want to ask each photo booth company as you interview them. If having 4×6 prints instead of the typical 2×6 strips is important to you, ask about that as well.

 

5. What do the photos look like?
If you decide to go with physical prints for your photo booth (good choice!), quality of the photos is extremely important.

Ask what type of printer they use, how fast it prints, what different layouts are available, and whether custom graphics or logos can be added. A professional photo booth company should offer lab-quality prints in less than 10 seconds.

6. What does the setup look like?
Ask if you can see pictures of the photo booth setup. Some companies put up cheap pipe-and-drape to conceal a hideous booth. Others strew the area with cords and leave props thrown willy-nilly on the table.

It’s also important to ask when setup and break down take place. Are they going to sneak in right before the reception and set up while you’re saying your vows? Or will they setup the equipment in the morning and leave plenty of time for testing and troubleshooting?

A photo booth that doesn’t work when you need it is the same as having no photo booth at all.

 

7. Does the booth come with an attendant?
Of course, even if a photo booth works perfectly, it won’t be any good to your guests if they can’t figure out how to use it.

Don’t hire any photo booth company if they don’t include an attendant with every single rental. Photo booth equipment is sensitive and expensive; you don’t want them accusing you if something goes wrong. Besides that, you want to make sure every guest gets a top-notch experience.

Make sure the attendants are dressed professionally and what their scope of work actually includes. Will they clean up the prop table and organize the queue or will they just stand off to the side and play Farmville?
 

8. How many prints/sessions are my guests entitled to?
Personally, we think the answer to this should always be: UNLIMITED!

No one wants to be told that they’ve reached their limit and have to sulk by the dessert table. Offering unlimited prints is such a small thing for the photo booth company that makes a HUGE difference to you!
 

9. Can you accommodate my venue?
A small historic venue with narrow doorways and staircases will eliminate any photo booth company that only deals in behemoth booths. An outdoor venue with no covering might not be friendly to any booth at all.

Before you hire any photo booth company, make sure they’re familiar with your venue. Any experienced wedding vendor should be familiar with most of the wedding venues in your area: how to access them, what the floor plan is, and the event manager’s name.
 

10. What are your reviews? Harry Potter green screen events - one of the many wardrobes and accessories from All The PROPS sensational selections!Hogwarts Harry Potter themed green screen eventOne of the many wardrobes and accessories from All The PROPS sensational selections!
Honest, unbiased reviews from a third-party source are one of the best ways to judge a photo booth company’s quality.

Ask friends and family members for recommendations, but also read the company’s reviews on their social media pages and sites like Google. Any company who isn’t forthcoming about their reviews is probably one you don’t want to work with.

3. Galas and fundraising events

No event is too fancy to have a photo booth! Especially when you can customize the backdrop to fit your theme and have the classiest props we offer! People love to escape in-between meals to go take fun pictures with their partners. Booth pictures will add a fun touch to any gala or fundraising event! Increased engagement can lead to more guests and more giving!

4. Kid’s birthday

Out of anyone, kids are  our most loyal customers at every event. They will hang around the prop table, wanting to try them all on of course, and proudly show their parents the resulting pictures. So, as you can imagine, a photo booth dedicated to a kid’s party is always dynamic and a lot of fun! Needless to say, children are quite possibly our most creative clients with the props, and their moments can be immortalized forever. And what about a cool, fun picture of your child to send to grandma this year?

5. Your Birthday!

Everyone needs a little me-present to themselves! Unlike more official events, the birthday party booth is definitely the one people go most crazy in! A fun, colorful backdrop sets the tone, while you and your guests will have the time of their life with the goofy accessories! There are infinite possibilities with a birthday booth! What about doing a picture competition? After the cocktail hour, your guests will be very creative, trust us!

6. Mitzvah

A Photo Booth will boost any Bar/Bat Mitzvah! Kids will stay around the booth, taking pictures with their friends and having fun, while families will try to gather the aunts and uncles, grandfathers and grandmothers for a unique family picture!

7. Product Launch

A photo booth at a product launch party is a genius idea, and the word is getting out there. Imagine a customized backdrop, with the logo of the company, or a green screen where you can choose from 8 different images (the new product, the company brand name, company logos, etc…). And as far as the props go…how about everyone posing with the new product you are launching! Is there a better way to increase brand awareness than having every guest take home fun, crazy photos to show their friends? This is, bar none, the best, most original way to announce or celebrate the launch of a new product.

9. Team Building

Companies are getting more focused about team building, as they should! Between increasing team cohesion, improving internal communication, and making employees more productive, team building is very much necessary in today’s business environment. The challenge is to find new, playful ways to bring employees together. And in this way, photo booths offer interesting challenges and provide fun games that people can play!

10. Festival

The keyword of any festival is : Entertainment! Well that’s perfect, because our photo booth moto is : “Pictures make it memorable, PROPS make it Fun!”. Whether it is a music festival, a movie festival, or a beer festival, guests would love a little memento to bring home and share instantly online to celebrate good times.

St. Patrick's Day Parade 2019 https://www.alltheprops.com/blog/2019/3/st-patricks-day-parade-2019 What an incredible time and opportunity to participate in the 37th Annual St. Patrick's Day Parade in downtown Raleigh, NC last week!  This was the first parade experience for All The PROPS and we were all extremely thankful the sun came out and pushed away the rainy weather we've become accustomed to in recent months.  The cool air and wind made it a little chilly in the beginning, but all of that soon went away once the parade began! 

The streets were lined up with thousands of people cheering and dressed in some fantastic and creative attire which of course made All The PROPS team feel at home like we were participating inside of an enormous Photobooth! 

As a kid I always remembered when a business would hand out candy, wooden nickels, and little trinkets so in this fashion we decided to follow our Photobooth theme by handing out small glittery green hats with All The PROPS logo mounted to the front - 500 hats along with 60 pounds of candy.  We all thought that would get us through the parade but instead realized we could have easily doubled or even tripled that number!

I'm extremely thankful for the planning and effort to provide such a fun and entertaining event for so many people to watch and participate and look forward to next year!
