Now that we are booked with you, we will do most of the heavy lifting of planning and prepping for your event!

One thing to look for is a quick questionnaire we will send out about 1 month out from your event. With your answers, we should have everything we need to prep your booth and your attendant for the day of.

In the meantime, the tips below are great to keep in mind as you continue to plan for your event!

And don’t be afraid to ask us any questions ahead of time to help plan; that’s what we’re here for!



We arrive up to one hour before our photo booth coverage starts to set up your booth and backdrop! Our photo booths only take about 15-20 minutes to fully setup.

If you need us to setup earlier than an hour before your coverage starts, we charge a $50 idle fee for each additional hour you need the booth and/or backdrop setup but not operating (we waive this fee if you rented one of our premium or custom backdrops).

Please let us know if you think you might need an early setup and we can help you navigate it so that is smooth and works for everyone.


What is the best type of space for us to be at your venue?

We simply need an 10’x10’x10’ space with a 3 pronged outlet within 20 feet. If we are outdoors, we must be under covering and under 90 degrees fahrenheit. If this is not provided, we reserve the right to refuse to setup for equipment’s safety.

We highly recommend not having the photo booth near the dance floor or near the bar so your guest don’t get overcrowded.

Not sure where we would best fit in the flow of the event? Just ask us and we can help you navigate that!


When it comes to the photo booth being open for your guests to use, there are two different times that we have found are busiest.

Cocktail hour is a great time to have your photo booth open! You are usually taking photos, the band hasn’t fired up yet, and it is a great way to entertain guests during this time.

The second time we recommend is after dinner, during the party. This gives people something to do during a break from dancing. People are usually more relaxed during this time and will goof off more!

If you want both times covered, we recommend adding an hour to your coverage or purchasing an idle hour for the photo booth to shut down during first dances and dinner, and then reopen once dancing starts!


All of our booths run off of internet connection for digital delivery! They can use wifi or LTE, with wifi being the most reliable.

Getting the wifi info from your venue ahead of time and/or if the venue has good cellular connection is super helpful for us to setup and run smoothly.


Do you have a neon sign you want on the backdrop? Do you want your florist to add some florals to our backdrop?

Please let us know if you have anything special planned so we can plan accordingly as these customizations can effect setup time and location!


We have a variety of backdrops from our standard collection, premium options, and custom builds!

If you purchased a custom overlay (a graphic that goes over the photo that may have your wedding monogram or company logo) and/or screens, we’d love to begin working on that for you!
