Questions to Ask When Choosing a Photo Booth Company

Choosing the right photo booth company for your event can be overwhelming. When people only look at the price and opt for the cheapest option, they typically are left disappointed. How a photo booth company does business, how they treat you, and the attention they put into the experience will speak volumes about how your event will turn out and is far more important than the price. Below we have listed questions you should ask your photo booth company in order to find the best vendor for your event.

1. Is the Company Licensed and Insured?

Any legit company will have a business license and insurance and it’s important for you that they do. You don’t want to put your event in the hands of someone who does this part time. You need a company that takes its business seriously.

2. What’s included in the Price?

When you hire a photo booth company you get what you pay for. Some companies will nickel and dime you for each additional item and others have an all inclusive price. 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?

3. What is the Setup Process

While this is an afterthought to most people the setup is important. Some companies leave cords exposed or throw a pile of props on the table. What you are looking for is a company that arrives early to set up and doesn’t break down until your scheduled end time. We have seen companies who arrive last minute and are in a rush to set up or other companies that are out the door right at their scheduled end time, which shuts down your photo booth before they are scheduled to do so.

4. Does the booth come with a high quality attendant?

A photo booth company should hire an attendant with every single rental. Your photo booth will only be a big hit if someone is there showing people how to use it. We also mention high quality, because when the person running the photo booth isn’t engaging with your crowd it really dampens the whole experience. That’s why at SnapShots Az we only hire the best people that walk through our door. We make sure they make a great first impression with us, so that they will make a great first impression with your guests as well.

5. Where are your reviews?

Honest reviews from a third-party source are one of the best ways to judge a photo booth company’s quality. Reading the company’s reviews on their social media pages and sites like Google and Yelp are very telling. While a bad review is expected here and there, if they start to pile up that is a cause of concern.

-Patty from Scottsdale, AZ

We recently hired SnapShots AZ for our 200+ people Midwestern Optometry school banquet. On the day of the event, the setup and breakdown of the booth went smoothly, there were plenty of fun props to use in the booth, and the pictures came out awesome. I would totally hire these guys again for my personal events, and we definitely would use them again for large school events.

Wedding Photo Booth Ideas

When planning your special day in Arizona, SnapShot AZ wants you to have lots of memorable photos from all of your wedding guests. Photos of your friends having fun, being silly, and looking great. Yet, having selective items in the background that really tie in your wedding and remind them of where they were at when it was taken when they look at the photo years later. The setting within the photo booth is crucial for getting the photos you are imagining. Below are tips for putting together the right photo booth setting for your wedding.

  1. Choose a Simple Back Drop

The background you place in your photo booth is probably the most important decision you will make in regards to the photo booth, and luckily you have options. Go with a single color to start with, maybe silver, gold, or the standard white, gray, or black—all classic colors. If you have a theme, you could also incorporate that theme from the wedding into your backdrop. However, keep it simple. You want your guests to stand out in their photos and not be overtaken by the busy backdrop.

2. Props and Accessories

Creating a setting that encourages guests to interact in amusing ways is what a photo booth is all about, and one way to do that is to add props to the mix. Props prompt your guests be creative, interact with one another, and be silly. In Phoenix, for destination weddings, we do a lot of Old Western themes, but for local Phoenix residents, we tend to do more traditional wedding themes. Roses that are the wedding colors, just married sashes, etc. Props are going to make your photo booth a lot more fun!

3. People Need to Know It’s There

Setting up a fun photo booth is great, but people have to know it’s there so they can utilize it. That is where great signage is going to come in. At SnapShot AZ we start by dropping a sign into an attractive poster stand outside your photo booth to invite your guests inside. It’s also not a bad idea to create other signs around your wedding space to direct people to it. Small sign holders on reception tables are a great location for these signs since they are easily placed where people will be sure to see them.

4. Furniture is Important

When setting up a photo booth most people don’t think to add props to sit on. Furniture will encourage your guests to pose in a variety of positions. Adding a couple of stools that can be moved around will really add additional character to your photos. It also allows more people in one photo since some of them can be seated. You want to furniture to be small and able to be moved in and out of the photo booth, so we recommend something simple like stools.

A photo booth is a lot of fun and will capture a lot of memories you will enjoy looking back on for years to come. If having your wedding in the Phoenix, Scottsdale, Chandler, Gilbert, or Mesa areas please reach out to SnapShot AZ here. We would be happy to help put together a memorable photo booth for your big day.
