WHAT TO ASK BEFORE YOU RENT A PHOTO BOOTH

9 ESSENTIAL QUESTIONS YOU SHOULD ASK YOUR VENDOR BEFORE YOU RENT A PHOTO BOOTH

Huge variations in quality exist between local photo booth companies, especially in the photo prints they produce. It’s not everyday that you decide to rent a photo booth, so how do you know you are choosing the right one for your event? The fact is, you don’t (unless of course you are choosing Exposure Photo Booths)!  Asking the the right questions can be the difference between perfection and disappointment. To help you make your decision we put together a list of questions any local photo booth rental should be able to answer.  Once you start asking the important questions, it will become clear that Exposure Photo Booths is the best place to rent a photo booth from and the absolute best value in the San Francisco Bay and surrounding areas including Reno and Tahoe.

To give you a head start on throwing the best party ever, here is our list.

1

WHAT KIND OF LIGHTING DO YOU USE?

WHAT QUALITY PHOTOS DO YOUR PHOTO SYSTEMS PRODUCE?

Your event is special. You and your guests will treasure these pictures and memories for years to come. It is important to make sure you get professional quality photos that will last a lifetime as a fond reminder of good times, not as a reflection on money wasted on bad pictures.

THE DIFFERENCE IS CLEAR WHEN YOU COMPARE EXPOSURE PHOTO BOOTHS AND A COMPETITOR COMPANY

EXPOSURE PHOTO BOOTHS™

“BRAND X”

These are actual event photos posted online from the photo booth company you are considering. Often times, an inexperienced photo booth rental company will produce photos that are over exposed, their skin tones are either too bright or too dark, and their image quality is not at a professional level. And you certainly don’t want a bed sheet as your backdrop! (“Brand X”)

WHAT TYPE OF CAMERA DO YOU SHOOT WITH?

Make sure your photo booth vendor uses only DSLR cameras for all of their rentals. Budget photo booth companies often cut corners by using a web cam to shoot their photos. The images these types of cameras produce are often grainy and low resolution. When you are searching for the best photo booth to rent, make sure to check each vendor’s online portfolio! If they don’t have a portfolio, ask yourself why?? Alternatively, you can check out our professional portfolio by clicking here.

WHAT TYPE OF CAMERA DO YOU SHOOT WITH?

Exposure only provides the modern, open air style photo booths to rent. We do not provide the type of booth that someone wheels in, plugs in and leaves unattended. These older style photo booths can only fit 2-3 guests in each photo, and are notorious for providing lower quality photo prints.

We do offer a fully enclosed option, for guests who prefer the privacy of a fully enclosed photo area. However, most guests truly prefer the fully open layout.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO PRINT OUR PHOTOS?

Check to make sure the vendor you are considering does not use an old fashioned, inkjet type printer. Exposure uses commercial grade dye sublimation printers.

Your prints will be ready in just 8 seconds.

There is no messy ink to dry, and your prints will be ready for handling immediately.

5

DO YOU CARRY COMMERCIAL BUSINESS INSURANCE WITH A MILLION DOLLAR LIABILITY COVERAGE?

Occasionally your venue will require that your vendors provide their proof of insurance. Newer or less experienced photo booth vendors may not have, or be able to obtain, this type of business insurance.

PRO TIP:

Check with your venue coordinator and all vendors you are considering about the venue’s insurance requirements, before putting down a deposit with any of your vendors! 🙂

6

DO YOU PROVIDE PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHERS?

Exposure is a professional photo booth company, which provides over 20 photo booths per month for corporate clients, high end weddings and other special events. Our team is made up of professional photographers, who know how to obtain the best results given your lighting and venue situation. Make sure that they photo booth company you are contacting are professionals, and not just someone’s side business.

HOW WILL WE GET OUR DIGITAL PHOTOS?

Make sure you understand exactly how you will receive your photos after the event. Because every Exposure Photo Booth to rent produces a consistent quality product, your photos will not require additional processing after your event. Exposure will deliver not only your digital prints, but more importantly, the full resolution, individual photos as well. Just another way we provide more value to our clients, every weekend!

HOW CAN OUR GUESTS GAIN ACCESS TO THEIR DIGITAL PHOTOS?

Check to see if your photo booth company is looking out for your guest’s desire to have their digital photos, too!

Select our social sharing option, and your friends and family will be able to post directly to their personal Facebook, Twitter or Instagram accounts. They can even email themselves a copy of their digital photo, right on site!
