Q: Why should I have a photo booth at my event?
A: Provides entertainment for everyone young and old. It also helps pass the time during the social hour and then again while the guests are waiting for the dance to start.
Q: How many people can fit in the booth?
A: We have had at least 16, but could get more in the booth. If we know in advance that there is going to be a large group, we can adjust the camera and also work with the group to get them all in the picture
Q: How much space is required for the booth?
A: Ideally we need about a 10'x10' area for the booth and table, plus a gathering area. We have 2 different layouts that will work, depending on the venue. We will need a 6’ table & chair and be located by an electrical outlet. We have worked with many of the local wedding reception venues/hotels and have not had a problem.
Q: Where do you typically set up the booth?
A: Where the action is...dance floor, by the bar. We have had it inside the reception hall and outside the reception hall. We have signs available if we are set-up outside the reception hall, letting your guests know we are there.
Q: What does unlimited photo booth sessions mean?
A: It basically means that there is no limit as to how many people/groups can use the booth during the rental period.
Each session includes either 1-4x6 or 2-2x6 photo strips. In most cases, one is for the client and the other for the guests.
Q: Is there an attendant there and what if you are also photographing our wedding?
A: There is an attendant for the duration of the rental. They will help your guests when needed, keep the props picked up and handle the Memory Book details.
f we are also photographing your wedding, there is still an attendant that attends to the booth. The photographer is there to do your wedding images.
Q: Can you print additional copies for the guests at the event?
A: Starting in 2013 reprints is now part of your package. Also, with a 4 hour rental, you will receive the disk with the photo strips on it and can print additional copies to send with the thank you card and comment about their pictures.
Q: Do you have props?
A: We have props available at no charge. We are always adding new props, so you might see something different from one event to the other.
Q: Can we use our own props?
A: Yes, if you would like to use your own props instead of ours, that is fine. If you want to provide props that have the mustache, lips etc. on a stick, you may, but you may not get them back at the end of the evening.
Q: How does the booth work?
A: We have a touch screen monitor in the booth. The guests will enter, sit down and select COLOR or BLACK & WHITE. It takes 4 images 4 seconds apart. When they are done, they will come over to the table and receive their copy of the photo strip and if you are having a memory book, we will have them write a message next to yours.
Q: What type of events do people rent the Photo booth for?
A: The photo booth can be used for many different types of gatherings: Wedding receptions, holiday parties, birthday parties, post proms, post-graduation, school dances, family reunions, anniversary parties, tradeshows, fundraiser's and corporate events. Any place where there is a gathering of people.
Q: How far will you travel for an event?
A: I will travel up to 3 hours from Fargo. There is a $1.50/mile round trip fee to cover travel, mileage & motel accommodations. There is no travel charge for Fargo, West Fargo, Moorhead or Dilworth.
Q: Can we personalize the photo strip for our event?
A: Yes, for weddings, it usually includes the Bride & Groom’s first name and wedding date. For corporate events, we can use your logo. We have several colored borders that you can also select from.
Q: Is there a deposit required for the Photobooth rental?
A: We require a $350 non-refundable retainer to hold the booth for your event. The remaining balance is due 30 days prior to your event.
Q: We want this for our wedding reception, when should we have the booth start?
A: In most cases, if you are having a social hour, that is a good time for it to start. You will have guests that will be there for the social and dinner hour and then leave. By having it during the social hour, it will give them a chance to use the booth. We have found this to be a good option and it gives your guests something to do if you are doing photos after the ceremony or doing a ride in a limo or trolley car.
Q: Do you have a license and are you insured?
A: Photo booth operators don't need a license. Memories Forever Photography is a registered business with the states of North Dakota and Minnesota. We also are fully insured.
Q: Can you do Save the Date photo strips?
A: Yes, of course we can. We can do photo strips or you can also do a traditional engagement session at the studio.
