[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_toggle title=”How does a photobooth work?”]

Your guests will approach the booth, choose props or just their own exciting personalities, step inside the booth, and enter the world of fun in front of the camera. After their 3 or 4 photos, they’ll choose to leave you a personalised video message (if you’ve booked this in your package), and step out of the booth to be handed a copy of their photostrip. If you’ve ordered a package with our drymount album, the other copy will be stuck in the album and your guests will be encouraged to write a message alongside their photo… creating a personalised guestbook for you to take home at the end of the night. They’ll then go away and tell their friends how awesome it is and bring others back to the booth for photo after photo. The fun doesn’t stop til your booking time is up! And don’t worry about the technical side, your host will ensure everything is running smoothly for the night.

[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”Are your booths like those phone camera quality ones in shopping malls?”]

Definitely not!! Our booths are the latest technology shipped from America, fitted with 12MP SLR cameras, and dye-sub printers with photo quality prints that dry instantly. Please do yourself a favour and ensure you’re hiring a booth that is up with the latest technology, software, and quality.. hire a Quirky Photobooth.

[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”Why should I rent a photobooth when I already have a photographer?”]

For starters, a photobooth catches all those candid shots throughout the night, and costs only a fraction of the costs a photographer will add onto their bill to stay all night. And the great thing about Quirky Photobooths is that our booth not only does photos but also video messages. Get those great candid messages on USB at the end of your night free of charge with all bookings, and add great frame keepsakes for your guests also at a small cost. Photobooths are the latest crazy in Australia and already the “must have” item at weddings overseas, giving you and your guests the chance to “take home a piece of the action!”.

[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”How do I work out how many hours to hire?”]

Everyone is different, and the amount of time you hire us for would also depend on whether you want photos or photos and videos. However the average would be a 20-30 prints per hour, to allow time for guests to position themselves in the booth, take their photos and receive their prints. With our experience we can quicky tell you the minimum and maximum time you’d need to allow all your guests to experience Quirky Photobooths at your event, just discuss with us the number of guests and what features you’d like in your package. We heavily discount our 4hour packages and also offer a discounted add on rate for extra hours on these packages.

As a general rule, most weddings will book our Wedding Glitz package giving 4 hours of unlimited photos and video messages, with the ability for approx 80-120 sessions (people usually pose in pairs). Often guests will want to pose with their partner and then friends, so make sure you allow for enough time to let everyone experience the booth. Additional hours are a great way to ensure everyone gets to have a great time without the time pressure.

As a general rule, most weddings will book our Wedding Glitz package giving 4 hours of unlimited photos and video messages, with the ability for approx 80-120 sessions (people usually pose in pairs).

Additional hours are a great way to ensure everyone gets to have a great time without the time pressure.

[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”When will the booth arrive and be set up?”]

The booth and operator will arrive at least 1 hour before event booking time. If your event setup and venue require a different drop off timeframe we’re happy to co-ordinate something with you and/or the venue. A standby fee may apply in some situation but we will advise at the time of enquiry prior to confirming the booking. In most cases we can accommodate your request.

[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”Help, I really want a photobooth at my event but my venue has stairs!”]

You’ll be excited to know that our booth can be taken apart and re-assembled, and yes we can go upstairs. It is your responsibility to advise us of any venue obstacles during the enquiry process and prior to finalising the booking. Of course, if you have an elevator available we’d prefer it, but we won’t let a flight of stairs get in our way of your fun event. Our booth fits through standard size doorframes so most stairs are accommodating. (spiral staircases and sharp turning staircases may be the exception to the rule… let us know if your venues only access is one of these two)

[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”What if my venue is outdoors?”]

We’re happy to setup our booth outdoors. It is your responsibility to provide flat solid ground (no grass) and adequate rain cover if needed during your event. Again, make sure we’re aware of this prior to finalising the booking.

[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”What photo products do you offer?”]

This is really a 2 part question… what does the booth offer, and what else can we offer to add that extra value?

Straight from the booth,printed in less than 8 seconds, we offer traditional photostrips or an option of a postcard size print. With the traditional photostrips the booth prints 2 copies … ideal for our wedding package where one copy is given to the guest and the other is put into our drymount album with their messages as your own keepsake.
In addition to what the booth can do… we also offer additional products including a drymount photo album, acrylic photostrip frames (great to preset on the tables with your own greeting message to your guests before the head to the booth), silver metal or black glass photostrip frames, 16mm thick acrylic photoblocks … if you have your own idea, just ask, we may be able to help source your idea.

[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”What about props?”]

Our Quirky Props Box is provided free of charge with all bookings. This includes hats, glasses, masquerade masks, feather boas and other fun items. If you have a specific theme please let us know and we’ll provide you with a quote to put together a special props box just for you.

[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”Are your prices different on public holidays?”]

Our rates will incur an additional charge on public holidays and during the Christmas/New Year period, we will advise of additional charges on your first enquiry.

[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”What if there’s an operational delay or failure during my event?”]

The booth is guaranteed to be operational for at least 90% of the event, which will allow for the changing of paper and ink or other photographic or systematic adjustments that may be necessary to provide you with the best possible photographs. While our Photo Booths are extremely reliable, the total price paid for the Photo Booth Rental will be prorated accordingly if the booth is operational for less than 90% of the event due to equipment malfunction.
