Standard rental packages begin with three hours of unlimited use, memory book, personalized photo strips by a graphic designer, attendant, online gallery, prop kit, and event CD. Packages can be customized to include social media sharing, instagram printing, additional hours, and more.
+ How does it work?
The photo booth serves two purposes; the first is the provide unique party favors to guests as well as entertainment. Guests enter the booth and take a series of three images. The booth will print the photo strips, and the guests get to take home a copy that is personalized with your wedding theme, colors, name, and date as a keepsake. The second purpose, and our favorite, is that we create a hand-made guestbook on-site that includes one of every photo strip taken at the wedding. Your guests will place their image in the memory book, and then write a personalized message to you. It is a guestbook that couples will proudly leave on their coffee tables for years!
+ When do you setup the photo booth?
Photo booths are delivered before guests arrive. The open style photo studios are delivered one hour prior to the start time.
+ What does the memory book look like?
The memory book (photo strip guestbook) is cloth bound with black pages, and measures 8.5x11. Your attendant will place two to three photo strips per page, and allow enough room for guests to write a message.
+ How many can fit inside the photo booth?
The traditional style photo booth can fit small or large groups, usually around 6-8 comfortably, and even more if you try! The pull away back curtain allows for more guests to get in on the fun. The open photo studio style allows for groups of 9-12+.
+ Which photo booth style is right for me?
That is up to you! However, here is what we associate each style with. Traditional = charming, nostalgic, large photo strips. Open Style = modern, spacious, visual. We recommend you select the option that best fits your venue and theme.
+ Have you been to my venue before?
Most likely, yes! Our local pros have been to most every location and venue within the twin cities over the years. The Wedding Collective even has preferred status at a number of venues in town, so you can rest assured we know how to make the best of your wedding day!
+ How big is the photo booth/how much space do you need?
The traditional booth measures 3x6. The photo studio measures 8x8. We recommend placing the photo booth in an open space near the action and an electical outlet, but not competing for space with the bar or dance floor. Allow room for a line!
+ Do you offer reprints if guests ask?
Absolutely, reprints can be made on site following a session if it is requested by the guest. We always encourage guests to get back in the booth as well, as that means more images in your memory book.
