What to Consider Before Booking a Photo Booth Rental
Q: When is the best time to schedule a photo booth rental for a wedding? A: If you’re planning your wedding around a busy season, you’ll find that the peak months are January through March.
Q: Why rent? A: If you plan on going to several weddings in a day or if you want to have guests over at various times, renting a booth is the way to go. Most Photo Booth rentals are a few hundred dollars per day. There’s no need to buy a brand new rental unit, and you’ll usually find them available in many different models. Some photo booth rental services have an hourly rate and sometimes have additional services like a photo storage area, a mobile storage area, and a guest desk.
Q: Is it cheaper to use your own equipment or to hire one for your wedding? A: The cost of renting a booth will depend on a number of factors. One is whether or not you need the photo booth at all and if you only use it at the reception. You may find that you don’t need it at all during your wedding, in which case the overall cost of renting it won’t really be much more than paying for a professional photographer.
Q: Are there any fees to cover if my guest doesn’t get a photo? A: The fees for Photo Booth rentals vary greatly but generally include the charge for the guest who missed their shot, as well as the cost of a replacement photo should the guest come back and ask to take a picture with their own camera.
Q: What is the best time to book a Photo Booth rental? A: Wedding Photography Business has found that the best time to book a booth is when you are planning on having several receptions over the weekend.
Q: Will a rental service deliver the booth right away? A: Some Photo Booth rental companies will deliver the rental unit, but this can sometimes take longer and the company may also charge additional fees.
Q: Is it okay to bring the rental unit with you on your wedding day? A: Yes, although most rental companies do not provide a tent on the wedding day.
Q: Should I bring a large or small camera with me to the wedding? A: It is always good to bring a small camera with you for every single event, regardless of the size of the wedding.
Q: What about storage facilities for the equipment? A: Most photo booth rental companies will provide storage options for all types of equipment including cameras. However, this storage area must be included in your rental contract.
Q: When should I schedule my wedding day? A: Most photographers recommend scheduling your weddings around the time of high season, when there are many visitors at the event and when rental booths are less expensive.
Q: Other factors to consider are the weather and time of year. In the summer months, the price for a rental booth will be significantly less than during winter months when the demand for the photo booth is greater.
Q: Where can I find a photo booth rental location near me? A: Most Photo Booth rental locations are located in various parts of the country.
Q: Is it possible to find a place that has both an indoor and an outdoor photo booth? A: It’s very possible to find a location that has both an indoor and an outdoor booth.
Q: Can a rental service offer a discount for multiple purchases? A: Many photo booth rental companies will offer a discounted rate if you purchase more than one unit. The only way that they can offer a discount for multiple purchases is by offering a special deal on those purchases.
Q: What about the guest list? Do you have to keep the guest list of the photographer separate from your wedding list?
Q: Can a photo booth rental company send someone with your guest list? A: There are several photo booth rental companies that do not send someone with your guest list, but most have a list available upon request.
