Frequently Asked Questions
How much space is required?
If you do not plan to set up a backdrop, the kiosk itself takes up a 3' x 3' footprint.
If you plan to set up a backdrop, it depends on the width, but usually around 8' x 8' will suffice.
Do I need WiFi?
Ideally, you'll connect your booth to WiFi so your guests can send themselves their images instantly through email or text message.
If you don’t have on-site WiFi or a hotspot, your photos will get stored in an "offline queue" until the device gets connected to a network. At that time, all images will instantly get sent.
When will my booth be delivered?
We'll ship it to you so you have it at least one business day prior to your event date.

Need help making decisions?

How long can I use my rental?
Our booths rent by the day, not the hour…so you can use it for up to 24 hours!
If you purchase additional days, each added day is equal to a 24-hour time block.
Do I need a power source?
We provide two battery packs that will last up to 8 hours (4 hours each) and can be recharged for continuous usage.
No messy cords. No trip hazards. No problems!
Do I need to set up lighting?
No, both of our camera options have a lighting source.
The Base 8MP camera has a LED light source attached with different brightness settings.
The Pro 18MP camera has a built in smart flash that will adjust to the lighting automatically no matter the environment. This is the best option for venues that are dimly lit.
All that said, any photographer knows that good light is the key to great photos, so if you can find a spot that naturally has good lighting, that'll be the cherry on top!
How far in advance do I need to place my order to take advantage of free ground shipping?
We guarantee free shipping for events that are a minimum 7 days away.

The Base 8MP camera is is the better option if you're on a budget.
What is the difference between the design options "Standard" and "Customized"?
Standard design includes our classic booth interface without any customization options, like logos, graphics or frames. This is a great option if you have a busy backdrop or are going for a clean, classic look.
Customized design allows you to use our templates or to work with our designers to create your very own branded booth experience. Great for wedding themes and monograms, or for corporate events to add logos.
