Photo Booths, another dimension of fun


Photo Booths, another dimension of fun

Everyone has gotten into the photo booth craze. A few years ago when photo booths started to get popular at events, they were these big enclosed booths like you would see at malls, stores or carnivals. As they became more popular they started to get downsized and now we have open booths, iPad booths and selphie booths. So which one is right for you and your event? You have to start by asking yourself, What do you want yourself and your guests to get out of it? Whether it's a small house party or wedding or a large corporate event, the right type of booth is out there and you should know what you're getting. So many companies are throwing out these photo booths and yet most don't even want to take the time to really customize or get to know what you want, and some don't even know what to do if the booth goes down because of a paper jam, a printer error or the dreaded update while the booth is running. It's important that when you're looking for a photo booth that you ask questions, look to see what they have done in the past, look at the booth that you're going to get and ask if they have a back up in case something happens at your event. The next thing you want to ask is what you will be getting for the fee that they are charging. There are a lot of groupon deals that look great at the start because of price and when you book it, you realize that if you want a custom strip it's extra, unlimited prints is extra, a colored backdrop is extra, and sometimes they will just drop off the booth and leave. What happens if the booth stops working, where is that someone to get it back up and running? Not all photo booth companies a created equal!!! While it may look like a deal, it's really not. There are many booths out there that now use an iPad with the attached webcam or a tablet with webcam combination. While that may be nice for you during your vacation or home party, do you really think it will give you the same quality as a regular DSLR camera with flash. The next question is about the fun factor. I have been to many different events with photo booths and while I never point out that I am the the business I look to see what they are providing and the service as well. The props are the first thing, are they generic everyday props that are used for every type of event no matter if it's a wedding, sweet 16 or birthday or are they geared toward that type of event, and that goes for the prop signs as well. While i don't mind wearing a Captain America mask or holding a Thor hammer for the pics, I also don't want to see a kid holding a sign that says "I see drunk people" at a childs communion party. I also think it's important that the attendant interact and help the guests with poses and just have fun with them. This helps everyone have a great time and the pictures will be that much better. The last things are about add ons and options. While some companies will give you everything to get that booking, again you have to ask yourself, how is this going to affect quality and the experience that we will have in the booth. Social media sharing is one of the biggest things because everyone wants to share those silly pics on Facebook or Instagram or Twitter. There are many companies that include it and it has to be done in the booth after the pictures are taken. How many times have you forgotten your password to instagram or Facebook, now you have to remember it in order to share your pic. This takes up time in the booth where normally a 3 picture session would take 30 seconds or less, it has now become a 3-5 minute wait for the next person on line because you want to share it on all social media outlets and send yourself the email. This also will limit the amount of times you can access the booth and it's always good for that company because they don't have to print as much. How about custom albums? Will you have it at the event or will it be done afterwards? Will guests be able to sign the album? Will it be customized with names and date? These are just some of the things that you should know and ask of your photo booth company and get clear answers. Know what your getting before you put that deposit down. FMJ Productions has been providing the newest and best photo booths for the last 5 years. We have 3 different booths that are all similar in look but all offer something different and unique. We also have one of the most unique and interactive booths on the market today, our own Fun Mirror Booth. All of our packages include fun and interactive photo attendants that help with getting your props and signs ready for your pictures, help with poses, count down the time for you so you know to be red carpet ready, and are there to print out as many copies as you need. Our props and signs are all high quality and differ according to the event type, so if your having a sweet 16, wedding, baby shower, mitzvah, quinceaƱera, or anniversary celebration, you will not see the same signs at any of these events. We provide unlimited prints and print sessions, so no matter if there are 2 or 10 people in the picture, everyone gets a print and when you book you get an option of having standard Photo Booth strips or 4x6 prints and you always have an option during the picture taking session of either color or black & white prints. We have a variety of different colored backdrops to choose from so your not limited to just black or white. We will also custom make your printout and your welcome screen to whatever you want and most of the time match your invitation or elements of it and if you get a custom album we can even match that up as well. One thing that we do that no other company does is make up to 6 personalized prop signs so that will add to a personal touch on your photos. We try to be a cut above all other companies but you don't have to take our word on it. You can visit our photo booth divisions Facebook page at FMJ Fun Photobooths and see for yourselves. We look forward to providing one of our booths at your next event
