How do I book you?

Booking one of our photo booths or experiences is easy.  A non-refundable deposit secures your date, and an entertainment agreement is signed detailing the specifics of the options & package you booked.  You can book your photo booth over the phone, via email, online, or through our online planner.

How much space does the photo booth need?

Our photo booths are open air style, so they do not need a lot of space.  However, we recommend a clear area of 10' x 10' to have enough space to be comfortable.

Can I personalize the photos?

Yes!  Most of our photo booth packages include personalized photo print templates.  They can be personalized with your names, event date, and even company logo or branding.

How many photos / sessions can be taken?

Do you provide props?

Do you travel?

Yes!  We travel and provide our photo booth rental services anywhere in the state of MN and WI on a regular basis.  Our photo booths can also be shipped anywhere in the world for special multi-day/multi-city events.

Does the photo booth rental come with prints?

Most of our photo booth rental packages come with our "Unlimited on-site prints & reprints" option.  However, we do have a couple photo booth experiences that do not have printing included by default.   Photo booth prints can be added to any package.

We can even create photo prints & strips from animated GIFs and boomerangs.  Your guests will be surprised and impressed when they see their super cool boomerang video, and then are handed a traditional photo booth strip made from several frames of the boomerang.

What size are the photo booth prints?

The default size of the photo booth strip is 2"x6".  For a nominal fee, you can upgrade to have 4"x6" postcard prints.

We use professional Mitsubishi Dye Sub photo printers that can print a pair of photo booth strips in 8-12 seconds.
