The 10 Best Resources For Photos

How to Spot a Good Photo Booth Rental Company

There are no rewinds in the events industry as we know it. There is no such thing as second chances, whether it’s a birthday party, a wedding or any other special occasion. That’s why you need to do your homework before choosing a photo booth rental company.


First off, what is the reputation of the good company? If you don’t find them listed or reviewed on any reputable vendor site, you should ask why. If have no advertisements whatsoever, they might be hiding something. A very good idea is to ask for client references from a vendor you might be considering. Call these people and listen.


When it comes to photo booth rental, a company’s experience is based on the number of events they have done. Many will boast being in business for many years. But how many events exactly have they actually done? What kind of relationships do they have with other vendors in the events industry? Do they have a portfolio of their past events?


When you talk of photo booths, bigger megapixel isn’t necessarily better quality. More important factors are lighting and the printer’s DPI (dots per inch), considering you have limited space and depth of field in a photo booth. See if they can deliver professional quality photos. Will they cut photo strips using scissors? How fast is the printing? These are the kinds of questions that actually count.


What level of customization will they provide? Or will they just put plain name and date captions at the bottom of the photostrip? Either these people have no designers in their team or they use no professional software. If they say custom graphics is part of the deal, make sure it actually is.

Actual Cost

If you’re considering a vendor based on price, don’t just ask what’s included but also what isn’t. Make a list of your personal must-haves and optionals. In short, know your expectations. Also, how many hours will you get to use the booth? Are there additional fees for online galleries, graphics and other customizations? A travel fee? Vague or hidden fees?

Do They Have an Actual Photo Booth?

Ridiculous but very true. There are photo booth rental companies that don’t actually have a photo booth. They will just come to your event with tripod-mounted cameras and portable backdrops. That is no way a photo booth!

Considering the huge number of photo booth rental companies today, it may take you a while to find the right vendor for your event. But just be glad you have that variety to choose from. In fact, you should have no less than two prospects for comparison.

Take note, the photos you take in those booths are going to carry lots memories for you and your guests for years to come. Make sure they are all great and happy ones.
