The PhotoBooth Bros. – Let’s Plan Your Birthday Party!
Whether you want a classy or playful birthday party, The PhotoBooth Bros. can accommodate everything you need to make your party unforgettable! Here are some pointers to use to ensure that your photobooth is perfect on your or your love one’s Birthday!
Space and Sizing:
Some of the first things our clients ask us is how much space they need to have in their venue for the photobooth. The size of the space you have for us can potentially limit the type of booth your have. For instance, if you want our super fun Inflatable enclosed photobooth you will need at least a 10 x 10 foot space.
If you find out that you are strapped for space or you don’t want the photobooth to be too much of distraction during your reception, you can purchase the open air booth that is normally 8×8 feet but the open air booth can also be as small as 5×5 feet in size or you can purchase our small enclosed which is less flashy than our open air booth and is 5×5 feet big and only requires a 8×8 foot space.
Photographer vs. “ Machine” photography:
Some of our guest of honors want the “machine” or software option for their photobooth. However being in the photobooth business as long as we have, we have learned that the photographer option is the best way to ensure that your pictures come out fantastic. Let us go over some of the benefits and disadvantages of upgrading to our software option compared to our photographer method.
With our photographer option, the guest are not pressured by time restraints to take their pictures. The Photographers are trained to crop the images, make sure everyone’s’ eyes are open and that everyone is looking at the camera. With the photographer, there is also more leeway with the images. For instance, a lot of times in a 3 picture photoset, the guest might not like all the images that were taken. However, with the photographer, we can retake any of the 3 pictures without starting the process all over again.
Our software option has been created to have social media or the 4×6 inch print format. The software option is just like those booths that you see in the mall. The booth takes a picture roughly every seven seconds and the camera stays in the same location throughout the whole picture. This option is great if you want your guest to have their images emailed to them and if you want to see your image on a big screen after you take your picture. However there are some downsides to software. For instance, since your guest can see themselves on the screen when the picture is being taken, many guest might be looking down at themselves instead of the camera. There is also the time restraint, many times if you are not fast enough you might miss the flash!
Either option you choose, we always send professional quality DSLR cameras and a fantastic attendant so you are sure to get beautiful pictures from your event!
Choosing a Color:
With each of our photobooth packages, you always have the option of selecting your backdrop color! Plus, if you select our LED inflatable you also have to select the color for that as well! This section is going to guide you through choosing the color of your backdrop or inflatable booth.
We have almost every sequin color backdrop that you can imagine so if your reception has a color scheme, we probably match the color of your color story! Now if you are unconcerned about the backdrop matching your color theme, the colors that complement the photos the best are gold and silver. You can’t go wrong with any of our backdrop colors, but the gold and silver are classic and makes everyone look great!
Now onto LED booth color, our fun inflatable booths turns red, blue, green, purple, light blue or cyan. That means you can match the color of your booth with the color scheme of your Birthday! If the inflatable doesn’t turn the color scheme of your event, don’t fret! The booth can also fade all the colors which is super fun or you keep it simple and make it glow white.
You have now went over all the details of your event now it’s time to decide how many hours you want a photobooth for your event. Let’s go over the 3 time options that we offer and what type of events they serve best.
If you are having a birthday party for a little kid or your having your party at a time restrained activity venue like an arcade or a roller rink, 2 hour might be best. If you only have 3 hours at a venue, the 2 hour option will give you some time to set up and let your guest arrive.
If you are less worried about time, 3 hours is our most popular option and is a perfect amount of time for almost any Birthday. 3 hours gives your guest enough time to visit our booth and take pictures to remember your awesome birthday!
We also have our 4 hour option which is perfect for a long Birthday or if you also purchased our scrapbook option. Usually the more hours the better! 4 hours will ensure that everyone takes a picture and that we fill up your photobooth with fantastic birthday memories!
