How many people can
be in one photo?
Two or three adults can sit in the booth,
but the curtains can be opened so even more can pop their heads
in the shot. The more, the merrier.
We now offer the option of a soft-side
booth that provides more room for "cramming" the booth.
If you want to pose large
groups, tell us in advance and we'll provide an "open" booth. In
order to get more people in a photo, the head size of each is
smaller, so plan accordingly.
How soon will my photos
After the last photo is complete the
pictures are printed in about 15 seconds. We use professional
Sony dye sublimation printers that print quickly and produce
extremely long-lasting photos in color or black and white.
Where can the
photobooth be located?
Any place within 20 feet of a standard
power outlet, as long as it's flat and dry. The booth has a
footprint of about 3 by 7 feet. If you consider an outdoor
location, it must be sheltered from moisture and extremes of
We've got a contingency plan to operate on
battery power if a client requests it, but that hasn't happened

"the ultra portable" and can go almost anywhere. It's transported in compact form
but if the venue is on an upper floor and there is no elevator
we need a second person to help get it up the steps. There may
be a surcharge.
Why not just use
Hey, we practically invented the use of
disposable cameras from our New Jersey location, even before
Kodak and Fuji. But thatís the old way when you had to send in
film for processing and they didnít all come out.
A photobooth ensures that both you and
your guests receive pictures that are sharp, clear and properly
exposed on the spot to take home and treasure.

I don't want to rent
a booth for the entire length of the event
Removing the booth during the event could
be disruptive. It usually makes sense to keep the booth
operating for the entire length of the party. When clients
request us to leave before the night is over, their guests are
Can you deliver and
set up the booth several hours in advance?
Yes. Of course there will be additional
labor fees for the extra time on site required. Due to the high
value of booths and components, we can not drop and leave them
