About the photo booth

The photo booth has been designed to be simple in operation. A single button starts the countdown. Follow the prompts, strike a pose, and wait for your prints. That's all there is to it!
Yes. Depending on the style of photo booth we can work together to create a backdrop that suits your needs. Choose from the readily available scenes, tell us want you want or supply your own!
All you need to do is press the 'Start' button and strike a pose. The photo booth is fully automatic. An attendant is on standby the whole time to assist and attend to any technical matters.
The photo booth was originally a wedding gift for a couple getting married in 2012. It was such a hit that we thought we should share it with others who wanted the same experience!
The photo booth hire can include hire of props, chalkboards and picture frames. You can chalk messages to whoever you like. We can supply fun props, classy props, keepsake books and even mini-chalkboards for a cute look to your prints.
The photo booth is packed and stored between events so is normally not open for viewing. Please contact us if you wish to see it. We may have it set up for an event and may be able to organise a viewing. We can supply photos of the photo booth in both configurations if required.
We can show all the photos from the night, just as they are being taken in the photo booth! The images can be shown on a large screen if available at the venue, or in cute mini-photo frames scattered around the venue. Almost as much fun as being in the photo booth!

Technical aspects

We use a high quality digital SLR camera to capture the images. Typically, they are captured at 18MP. All images of the night are stored for use while printing and to provide the hirers with the images, if so requested.
Normal photo strips are printed using a dye sublimation printer for fast, long-lasting, quality prints (similar to what you get from a photo store).
All images are protected in an password protected gallery. We may use images from time to time with permission.

Logistics

The photo booth has 2 ways to operate:
  • 1. As a sit in, private area. In this configuration, an area of around 3m x 2m is required to allow room for guests to enter and leave the photo booth and the attendant to ensure the photo booth operates smoothly.
  • 2. As a free standing both with open backdrop. This configuration requires around 1m x 1m for the photo booth itself, and another 3m x 4m area to frame the backdrop.
Allow extra room if you wish to lay out props, or areas for chalkboards to be written on.
For safety reasons, the photo booth is not designed to run in the rain or in wet conditions. If there is a chance of rain, a more suitable location may need to be chosen. We will work with you to ensure we can get the photo booth when and where you want it.
Normally, the photo booth requires a power connection to operate. We supply around 35 metres of cable to get where we need to. The photo booth can also run without dedicated power if required. Please talk to us about your requirements.
