rent an retro photo booth for your wedding reception or reunion in SC. South Carolina brides love our photobooth and we're headquartered in Aiken SC  

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 be ready?

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 temperature.

We've got a contingency plan to operate on battery power if a client requests it, but that hasn't happened yet! Tips about the venue and getting the most out of your investment

There isn't an elevator. Can you get to our location?

One of our booth designs is designated "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 disposable cameras?

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.

Will you help us run it?

Of course! One of our photobooth professionals will set up and operate the booth or booths at your event. They are specially trained to get the maximum performance and fun from the system.

Where are you located?

Our headquarters is in downtown Aiken, South Carolina. We can travel almost anywhere but we offer a discount if the venue is within 35 miles of Aiken.

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 usually disappointed.

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 unattended.

We want to do it, what's next?

Place a $300 deposit and we'll hold the date for you. Full details are on our page How Much Does It Cost?
