You've got questions?
We've got answers!


Top What kind of events do you book? Hide
Any kind! From weddings and bar mitzvahs to reunions and corporate parties, we'll help you rock the booth at any event!

Top How does the booth work? Hide
It's simple! Step inside, touch the screen, and follow the instructions! The booth will show a live video preview and a countdown prior to each photo so you can strike the perfect pose. Meanwhile, the side monitor displays each photo outside the booth as they are taken, so that everyone can get in on the fun. The booth will automatically take 4 photos, and voila!....about 30 seconds later your print is ready!

Top Will my guests have to pay to use the booth? Hide
Absolutely not! Our rental fee covers full operation of the booth for the duration of your rental time. All your guests have to do is enjoy the fun!

Top How big is the booth? Hide
Our booth measures about 3'x7', and is 6'7" tall. It comfortably fits anywhere from 1-10 people, with potential to squeeze in a few more if you're up for it!

Top What are your setup requirements for the booth?Hide
We require enough space for the booth itself (3'x7'), plus some extra space surrounding the area so your guests can easily move in and out of the booth. We also need to be within 25 feet of a 3-prong outlet. If you select our scrapbook option, we will also need a table and chair to assemble your scrapbook on (a 6' skirted table is ideal).

Top What do I need to do to book you for my event?Hide
All that we require is a signed contract and $150 non-refundable deposit to secure your date!

Top When is payment due?Hide
A $150 non-refundable deposit is due at the time of booking. This amount gets applied toward the cost of your package, and the remainder is due 2 weeks prior to your event.

Top Is there a travel fee?Hide
We'll travel up to 60 miles from our Westland office free of charge. Events over 60 miles have an additional travel fee based on time and distance.

Top How can I pay?Hide
We accept cash, check, money order, and credit cards (3% processing fee applies to credit card transactions).

Top How many hours should I reserve a booth for?Hide
Whenever possible, we recommend having the booth open for the duration of your event. If you'd prefer to scale back a bit, you can always opt for less time, or use idle hours as a cost-effective way to split up your package hours. Ultimately, the timing depends on the structure of your event and your own budget. We're happy to work with you to come up with the best schedule for your individual event!

Top Will the booth operate for the entire duration of my contracted time?Hide
Due to the nature of the photo booth, it will require some basic maintenance during your event. We guarantee that it will be operational at least 90% of the time, but typically our clients don't even notice any down time.

Top When do you set up / tear down?Hide
With our standard packages, we set up for 2 hours immediately prior to the booth start time, and tear down for 1 hour immediately after the booth end time. [i.e. Setup 4-6pm, Booth open 6pm-12am, Teardown 12-1am] We also offer the option of using idle hours to deviate from this schedule if you would prefer an early setup, late teardown, etc.

Top What are idle hours?Hide
Idle hours cover any time that the booth is fully assembled but not open for photos, and are $25/hr. For example, if you'd like the booth set up by 6pm but not open until 8pm, or to close the booth for an hour during dinner, etc. They are a great option to use if you'd like to break up your package hours!

Top How many photos are we allowed to take at our event?Hide
As many as you can squeeze in! There is no limit on the number of photo sessions!

Top What kind of print options do you offer?Hide
You can choose between the classic photo strip or the 4x6 print shape. Both options have 4 photos and include a custom logo design for your event!

Top How do the photo color options work?Hide
We offer three colors to choose from -- color, black & white, or sepia tone photos. You can give your guests the choice of all three colors, limit their selection to just two colors, or opt to have all the photos in a single color. It is totally up to you, and there is no extra charge either way!

Top How many prints can we get?Hide
Each package comes standard with one printed copy of each photo session. We also have the ability to print extra copies of photos during your event at no extra charge. We try to accommodate as many requests for reprints as we can, although due to time constraints we are unable to guarantee any specific number of extra prints. In any case, guests always have the option of downloading a digital copy of their photo strip for free after the event (from your online gallery). We also offer the option to add a full extra set of prints to your package for $50.

Top How does the scrapbook option work?Hide
The scrapbook option automatically includes an extra set of prints, so one copy of each photo session goes into your album, and the other copy goes home with guests. We provide all the materials needed to assemble a 12x12 scrapbook for you -- album, paper, pens, stickers, etc. We individually select all the materials for each album based on your event colors and theme. Our attendant will place each photo strip into the album, encouraging guests to write a message for you. As the pages fill up, they get decorated with stickers and embellishments, and then inserted into protective sleeves. By the end of the night, you'll have a beautiful keepsake of your event that you get to take home right away!

Top Can I provide my own scrapbook?Hide
Sure! If you'd prefer to choose your own supplies you can do so. You would also need to purchase an extra set of prints to go in it, and provide a person to assemble the book for you (or your guests can have access to all the materials).

Top What is in the prop box?Hide
All sorts of fun items! Since we're constantly updating our props, the selection may vary from box to box. However they all contain fun items to wear like feather boas, an assortment of hats and masks, sunglasses, and beads; plus goofy items to hold like giant crayons, a pony-on-a-stick, sword/shield, wands, and more!

Top Can I provide my own props?Hide
Sure!

Top What if I'm not sure which options I want yet?Hide
No problem! We understand that in many cases your event is still months away, so it's ok if you're unsure of all the small details. The most important thing is to get a both reserved for your date, and we can always adjust your timing and options as we get closer to your event.

Top How soon do I get my scrapbook/online gallery/CD of images?Hide
Your scrapbook is assembled as the event progresses, and will be ready to take home at the end of the night! Your images will be posted to an online gallery within 3 days of your event, and we'll mail a CD of all your images within 2 weeks. Want your photos sooner? Upgrade to our USB option and take all your digital photos home with you that night!

FUn Facts

  • Every photo you see on the RtB site was taken by one of our photo booths (except for images of products, of course)! None of the images have been enhanced in any way before posting. What you see is what you get!

  • The patent for the first "automated photography machine" was filed in 1889. (Wikipedia)

  • Anatol M. Josepho invented and patented the modern version of the photobooth in 1925. Two years later, he sold the invention for one million dollars, half of which he gave to charity. (Wikipedia)

  • In September 1925, Anatol opened Photomaton Studio on Broadway, between 51st and 52nd streets, in New York. As many as 7,500 people a day would line up to have their photos taken for 25 cents for a strip of eight. The place came to be known as 'Broadway's greatest quarter-snatcher.' (The Telegraph)
