FAQs

Below are some questions and answers. However if you can’t find the answer to your question please feel free to get in touch.

Why should I choose your booth?

 

 

 

A Premier Photo Booth is an essential addition for your wedding reception, party or corporate event. We will capture those funny moments that will leave your guests impressed, entertained and with a lasting memory that will be talked about for a long time to come!  Hand-crafted in Sapele our classy, stylish and beautiful open air self portrait pods not only look the part but they produce beautifully lit, high quality digital images and prints. All delivered by our fabulous booth attendants who are there throughout your event to operate the booth so you don’t have to. If you book The Post Modern Classic or The Art Deco package they also manage your guest book! PLUS.. there are only THREE of our Art Deco booths in the country, six of our Post Modern Classic ever to be made (some of which have been sold overseas) and our Modernist Booth is the only one of its kind in this stunning wood,  so the chances are you will have something that your guests probably haven’t seen before!

How do we book?

You will need to complete our Enquiry Form to find out if we are available on your date. Once you’ve received confirmation that we are available, you will need to pay a booking fee of £150 to secure the date. You will also need to complete our booking form and sign our terms and conditions which we will email to you with the date confirmation. The remainder of the balance is then due one calendar month prior to your event. You can pay your booking fee and final balance by cash or BACS. Once we have received your booking fee and booking form we will send you confirmation of your booking details.

How long does it take to set up your photo booths?

 

We like to give ourselves 75- 90 minutes to set up our beautiful booth.

How good are your photos & prints?

They’re fantastic! We are professional photographers after all, so taking beautiful pictures is what we do best. Visit www.kimshawphotography.co.uk to see more examples of our work. Our booth accommodates similar equipment to that we use to photograph our weddings, so all of your photo booth pictures will be great quality and lit by a professional studio light. We use dye sublimation printers which are the best in the business. The prints are ready in seconds and instantly touch dry!

Can you set up the photo booth earlier and return to run it later?

Should you require an earlier set up, prior to your guests arriving, or before dinner for example, we will try our best to accommodate you. This may be subject to an additional charge depending on the number of increased hours, but if this is something you are thinking about please contact us for a quote.

How much space will you need at our venue?

We require a floor space of 3 m x 3 m with a ceiling height of 2.5 m for our beautiful booth. The smaller the space the nearer the camera will be to the subject, so the fewer people can fit in the photos! We are happy to liaise with the venue on your behalf to arrange the best place for the booth to go, as well as finalise set up and break down times.

Can you set up your booth outside?

Unfortunately not. Our photo booths require a covered location as electricity and water don’t mix very well and you can never guarantee the British weather! They are absolutely fine in a marquee as long as there is a relatively flat, solid floor and power for a normal 13 amp socket.

Do you send someone to work the booth?

Our booth is always supplied with an attendant so you and your guests don’t have to worry about pressing the buttons etc!

How long do we get to use the photo booth for?

Our standard booth run time is 3 hours, but additional hours can be added to your package at a cost of £100.00 per hour which includes the time and the extra prints !

Do you have a selection of backgrounds we can choose from?

We have a large selection of backgrounds which you can choose from and you can see them all on our backgrounds page.  If you are going to book The Modernist Booth package then you have a choice from our Extensive Range (A), If you book our Post Modern Classic package then you have a choice from our Extensive Range and the Premier Range (A&B), and if you book out Art Deco package then you have a choice of backgrounds from the Extensive Range, Premium Range and Premium Plus range (A,B & C).  The only other restriction in choice may be the size of the space allocated to us at the venue. If we are allocated at least 3m width, you can choose which ever one you like within the appropriate range. However don’t worry if the space allocated to us isn’t that wide as we still have a number of backgrounds to choose from. Why not opt for your own personalised backdrop? A long as you can supply us with the design no later than 8-12 weeks prior your event (we can let you know the size an the cost) and we can arrange to have one printed for you!

Do you supply any props?

We offer the complementary use of our props with all of our packages. We carry an eclectic range of weird and wonderful accessories including , hats, glasses, feather boas etc.  Our props are great quality (no blow up saxophones for us) and many of our props are made especially for us by experienced prop makers so the chances are we may have something you and your guests may not have seen before!

How many photos are included during the hire time?

We offer unlimited visits to the booth and two prints per visit for the duration of the hire time. As fast as your guests can strike a pose, the booth will produce the prints!

How many people can fit in a photo?

Our booth is an open air style booth so unlike the traditional enclosed photo booth or the magic mirrors where the numbers are a bit more limited, we can usually fit quite a few people in! However the smaller the space we are allowed the less people we can fit in!

Can we personalise our prints?

The prints will be personalised with your names and the date for wedding packages. We can add a logo or message to your prints for £50 for corporate bookings.

How big are the prints?

Our prints measure 6 x 4” / 15 x 10 cm.

Can we have colour or black and white prints?

Although it is a retro style booth we don’t make you have retro style prints!  With our Post Modern Classic or Art Deco packages you can choose whether to have colour or black and white prints. This needs to be decided before the date of the event so we can set it up before we arrive.

Can our guests view the images after the event?

If you book the Post Modern Classic or the Art Deco package then yes you do! Usually within 48 hours of your event we create a password protected online gallery for you and your guests to view the prints.  Copies of the prints can be downloaded free of charge for up to one week.

Do we get a digital copy of the pictures taken by the booth?

If you book the Post Modern Classic or the Art Deco package then yes you do! Usually within 24-48 hours of your event we create a password protected online gallery for you and your guests to view the prints, this is live for one week. This facility also allows you to download unlimited digital copies of the prints at no extra cost.

What is the facebook upload option?

This is an optional service that we provide (if required) with our Post Modern Classic and Art Deco packages. As part of our service we upload the prints from your event to our Facebook fan page (premierphotoUK), to let you and your guests know that your online gallery is available. Your guests can tag themselves and share the prints with their friends. It’s entirely up to you whether you would like us to do this for you, just let us know your preference at the time of booking.

How does the guest book option work?

We set the photo booth up to print 2 copies of each print, 1 for your guests and 1 for your guest book.  We compile the book for you at your event and encourage your guests to leave messages beside their prints. We try to ensure your book is completed to a high standard and will hand deliver it to you at the end of your photo booth hire. This option is included as standard with the wedding hire options for The Post Modern Classic package and The Art Deco package.

How much do your photo booths cost to hire?

The hire price for our beautiful vintage style open air self portrait booths start from £595.00 for 3 hours of run time. Our booths may not be the cheapest but they are hand built by the finest master craftsmen right here in the UK using wood from sustainable sources and are something a bit different. In fact there are only THREE in the country of our Art Deco Booth, one down in the south, one up in the north and us in the middle of the country.  Our Post Modern Classic Photo Booth is a limited edition of only 6 ever to be made in this beautiful wood (and some have gone to different countries), and our Modernist Booth is the only one to be made in this beautiful wood so it truly is a one of a kind! So there is a good chance that it is something your guests may not have seen before!

How far do you travel and how much do you charge?

We are based on the border of the three beautiful counties of Shropshire, Staffordshire & Cheshire but we don’t just cover those counties we cover the rest of the UK too! Travel is free within 30 miles of our base (which actually covers quite a radius) for our Modernist Package, 50 miles for our Post Modern Classic package and 75 miles for our Art Deco Package. We then charge 50p per mile after that. Contact Us with the name and postcode of your venue for an accurate quote.

Where will we find your bank details if we want to pay by BACS?

We will email you our bank details along with the confirmation of our availability, booking form and terms and conditions.

What about insurance and safety?

All professional photo booth companies must carry public liability insurance and we are no exception. All of our booths are also electrically PAT tested and safety is one of our prime concerns. Should your venue require copies of our certificates, including our risk assessment, just let us know.
