Photo booths are great ways to make memories at a huge variety of events from high school graduations to weddings. This interactive booth encourages guests to enjoy the event and creates life-long memories and pictures that easily shared. Purchasing or renting a photo booth for an event is an easy way to make the event memorable. Many people have some basic questions about these booths and are usually concerned with set-up time. Here are a few key considerations if you’re considering if you want to buy a photo booth or use a photobooth rental.

How Long Does a Photo Booth Take To Setup?

For standard photo booths, the set up time depends on the type of booth and how simple or elaborate the booth might be. A MetroClick portable kiosk with photo booth functionality is very streamlined and , in most cases, photo booths can be set up and ready for picture taking in a few minutes. Some events may require advanced setup which is also a great option and many people like having the booth setup the day before the event. The cleanup time is generally less than the set up time and will not take more than 60 minutes. Times may vary depending on the complexity of the booth so these times are guidelines. If time is a concern for set up, be sure to ask when scheduling the booth if it’s possible to meet a time deadline.

Are Props and Backdrops Necessary for an Interactive Photo Booth?

Photo booths are always fun when there’s a backdrop or fun props. Small signs, hats, and party favors are great ways for guests to let loose and show their personality in a fun way. Each event can customize the display of their booth and what they want for the backdrop and props. The space for the photo booth will also allow groups to have either more elaborate or simple setups. The set design for booths is one of the most fun ways to create a unique memory so be sure to think about what elements of the booth are going to be fun for guests. That said, MetroClick offers an interactive photo booth solution that might make the need for props and backdrops obsolete.

What else to consider when evaluating between photo booth buying versus renting options?

When considering the options between photo booth buying versus renting it is important to factor in the amount of time a photo booth will need to be on site to make sure the event attendees all have a chance to use the photo booth kiosk. While some people choose to have a photo booth going for the entire event, long or full day events may not need an open photo booth. For smaller events, at least three hours is needed to get guests through the booth. Make sure to announce the booth at the event so that guests know to take advantage of the fun. For business and corporate events, the running time of the booth is usually based on the size as well as the type of other events happening at the same time. It’s possible to run the booth for a specific time period or keep it going throughout the event.

Having a photo booth at an event is a great option and most major events today are choosing to have them. They can turn any event into an instant party and are great ways to encourage guests to have a great time. The set up for the booths is easy and can be tailored to fit the schedule’s needs. Working with organizers to decide on the booth design and set up time is the best way to make sure the event goes off without a hitch.
