What to Consider When Selecting a Photo Booth Rental Vendor

There are no rewinds in the events industry as we know it. There are simply no second chances, whether it’s a corporate event, a wedding or any other special affair. That’s why you need to do your homework before choosing a photo booth rental company.


First and foremost, what is the company’s reputation? If you don’t find any reviews or listings on them in any reputable vendor site, that’s intriguing. If they don’t have any kind of advertising, perhaps they’re hiding something. A very wise step you can take is to ask for client references from your prospective company. Call these people and listen.


The experience of photo booth rental companies is measured by the number of events they have done. Many will bank on the number of years they’ve been in business. But exactly how many events have they really done? What kind of relationships do they have with other vendors in the events industry? Do they have a portfolio of their past events?


When it comes to photo booths, bigger mega-pixel doesn’t always mean better quality. More important factors are lighting and the printer’s DPI (dots per inch), considering you have limited space and depth of field in a photo booth. Ask if they make professional quality photos. Will they be manually cutting the photo strips with scissors? How fast is the printing? These are the kinds of questions that actually count.


What level of customizations does the vendor provide? Or are they just going to put names and dates on the photostrip? Either these people have no designers in their team or they use no professional software. If they say custom graphics is part of the deal, make sure it actually is.

Actual Cost

If you’re reviewing a company’s prices, you should know both what’s included and what’s not. Create a list of must-haves and optionals. In short, know your expectations. Also, how many hours will you get to use the booth? Do you pay extra for options like online galleries, live photo slideshows or any other customizations? How about a travel fee? Vague or hidden fees?

Do They Have a Photo Booth?

Funny but true. Some photo booth rental companies don’t have a photo booth. They will come to an event with portable backdrops and tripod-mounted cameras. That is no photo booth!

Considering there are so many photo booth rental companies around, it may take a while before you find the right vendor. But just be glad for the variety you have. In fact, you should have no less than two prospects for comparison.

Take note, the photos you take in those booths are going to carry lots memories for you and your guests for years to come. Make sure they are all worth remembering.
