We often hear the same story, whether our new clients hired one for a wedding or a corporate event, they complain about a previous photo booth rental service that turned out to be a disaster. Renting a photo booth should be a clean and fun experience that takes the stress away from your event, not add to it. When you are speaking with a representative from the photo booth company you want to rent from, make sure you can spot the red flags by keeping the following in mind.
The Company is Vague About the Camera
Not every photo booth rental service boasts the highest quality camera on the market. In fact, some may be so bold as to use a smartphone or a web-camera as their primary device but will try to hide that fact from you. Many events tend to be darker with several light sources flashing depending on where the photo booth is and the type of backdrops the company provides. Low-quality cameras tend not to do well in these extreme lighting environments and don’t capture your guest’s best angles.
No Past Photos or Testimonials
Testimonials are a given for any company, but photo booth rental services are in a rare position where they can show the results of their work from past events. Unless their old clients specifically do not want to have their images on the company’s website, there should be little other reason for a company to hide photos from its past events from you. Don’t take a chance. If they don’t show you what they have done in the past, move on.
Limited Backdrops and Props
Providing a variety of backdrops and props to customers is a standard in the photo booth industry. You are not renting a photo booth for your wedding to take normal pictures; you want to bring some excitement to the party! Even if the photo booth rental company you are interested in provides great quality pictures and positive reviews, if many of the pictures look the same, you may want to ask yourself whether you are better off looking elsewhere.
