When do you set-up/break down?

We commit to arriving at the venue as early as possible to ensure that everything is set-up before your guests arrive.  We are very flexible with set-up time and we will work with you and your venue to achieve this. It takes us approximately 1 hour to fully set-up the photo booth.

Always happy to discuss if you have specific requirements.

Is there an attendant/operator present during the booked time?

Yes, there will be a Photo Booth Host/ Operator (who will operate the photo booth and assist you and your guests).  When you book the premium package there will be 2 staff attending your event.  The second staff will be making sure that the memory book is created to your satisfaction.  Plus we always have a Technical Support Person on call to sort our any technical issues that might happen during the event.

What is the Difference between the Enclosed Booth and the Open Booth?

Here is an article that explains the difference between the Enclosed Booyh and the Open Booth:

What is the Difference between the Premium Package and the simplified package?

The Premium packages provides the ultimate photo booth experience with the addition of the Dry Mount Album where we place a copy of all photos printed in the photo booth and request your guests to leave notes and messages and the Magnetic Strip on all photos given to your guests.

In addition, the Premium Gold and Mighty Packages also includes Video Messaging which is a feature that allows your guests to be able to leave a video message for you.

And the Premium Gold and Mighty Packages also offers Red Carpet Set-up (Stanchions with Red Ropes plus Red Carpet at Photo Booth Entry).

The Simplified packages as the name suggests simplifies the features and inclusions - but not the service nor the experience. The dry mount album is not included in the packages along with the magnetic strips, the video messaging and the red carpet set-up.

If you only need some inclusions and not the others, we are always happy to provide you with a custom quote.

What is the DIY Package ?

The DIY package is ideal for events that are organised by businesses or organisations who has the resources to be able to staff and support the photo booth operation.
