Questions you need to ask before renting a PhotoBooth, and traps you need to avoid

- Ensure that the Photo Booth will be operational at the scheduled time
- It means taking full advantage of the precious time you have left to take care of the organization and your guests
- Reduce the risk of having equipment stolen
Do I need the PhotoBooth for the entire duration of the event?
- If so, I need to be prepared to assume the damage and financial costs that may result from guests who are no longer in a state of responsible discernment.
- What could be the quality of the photos taken during this late period, is this really the memory I want to keep of my event?
- Our experience has shown that stopping the service at around 01:00 am, in the morning is often a good compromise that allows you to have great quality photos with great memories.
- All providers offer unlimited photos, but be careful, they are probably digital photos and not paper prints.
- The right question for digital photos will be, how long is the duration of a session to take a photo?
- The slowness of some software processes takes up to 2 minutes for a session, compared to less than 20 seconds for the most efficient ones, the calculation of the number of guests delighted during the event is quickly done, 30 sessions compared to more than 100 sessions per hour for our devices!
Print on paper?
- Everyone has thousands of photos hidden in their smartphone that they occasionally find, having a paper print is a guarantee to see the photo often, they will remember each time they were at your event.
- Having a photo album next to the PhotoBooth allows your guests to give way to their creativity through the image and text, that will be a great finished souvenir for you.
Unlimited paper printing, what does that mean in practice?
Some service providers offer unlimited printing with variants that will get you confused, for example:
- For each pose in front of the camera, only one 10x15cm or two 5x15cm photos will be printed, no reprint option, it’s the trap. If you are 8 and the pose is exceptional, you will only have one or two paper copies of this photo. Repeat the pose/session 8 times while the others wait their turn, not so good.
- Filling up the “livre d’or” also needs a second sample of that great picture you just did. One for you and one for the album!
- Duration of the session, Imagine the exposure time until the printing order is so long that your guests will be discouraged, 2 minutes for the worst providers against less than 20 seconds for our devices…
- The length of the session plus the slowness of the printer means that at best 2 5x15cm photos will be printed in more than 2 minutes, i.e. a maximum of 30 sessions and 60 printed photos per hour compared to 100 sessions and nearly 300 printed photos, we know why our customers are increasing and love our efficient quality process, we like to offer a service that will make you and your guest very happy…
