Frequently Asked Questions
Why Fun Frames?
Our goal is to provide the best photo booth event experience possible. Our equipment is best in class, and your photos will be too. We are a locally owned, locally formed business, not a national chain.
What type of events do you do?
Most of our events are weddings and corporate events including holiday parties and employee appreciation parties. We also have brought the photo booth to many fundraisers of all types in the Seattle area, birthday parties, anniversary parties, summer parties, as well as bat and bar mitzvahs. Photo booths are also fun at school events such as spring dances, homecoming dances, high school graduation parties, proms, father-daughter dances, 8th grade graduation parties, and school auctions. In regards to fundraisers, by setting out a cash donation jar or getting a sponsor for the photo booth, it can literally pay for itself! Contact us for more information on how this works.
How many photos do we get?
Each person in the picture will get a photo strip. Imagine having to decide who gets the strip when there are four of you. We make sure everyone gets in on the fun. Your guests can use the booth as many times as they want, and each person will get a photo strip every time.
Will you just drop off the booth and run?
No way! We are there from beginning to end. We will show up at least 30 minutes prior to your designated start time to set up. At least one attendant will be with the booth at all times to make sure your guests are getting the most out of the experience.
How many people can you fit in your booth?
Our booth measures 5ft x 5ft, and stands over 6 ft tall. The word cram comes to mind. If they will fit in the camera view, they will fit in the booth! We have the ability to zoom in if there are just two in the booth or zoom out for a large group to get the best possible pictures unlike other photo booth companies that do not have zoom capability.
How long does it take for the pictures to print?
10 seconds. Love immediate gratification? We do too. That's why we invested in top of the line dye sub printers that are super fast. Get your picture, and you are ready to get back in line for round two of photo booth fun!
Can you put a personal heading on the photo strip?
Absolutely! For weddings, it's typical to put the bride and groom's name and the wedding date at the top. We have had couples send us their personal logos or custom images to add to the strip as well. We will make it fit into your personal wedding style. Same for other events including corporate, bar/bat mitzvahs, or other celebrations. Send us a .jpg file and we will send you back a mock up for your approval.
I don't know how long I should rent the booth for. What do you recommend?
Most weddings need a photo booth for 2-3 hours. It depends on your guest count and budget. Other photo booth companies want to rent their booths for 4-5 hours. Our experience has been that this is too long in most cases. Contact us to discuss the details of what your needs are.
What if your equipment breaks or fails?
We always carry backup equipment in the event there is a failure. We have never had this happen, but if it does, we are prepared to keep the fun going at your event.
How much room does the booth require?
We ask for a 10x10 squared foot space. If you are having a guestbook made, we need a 10ft x 15ft space total to accomodate the extra table.
There are several different booth styles available. How do I choose?
Personal style matters, we get that. We like ours because it's compact and fully portable which means we need limited equipment to transfer our booth to events. We like the look of the black velvet drapes as we feel they blend in well in any decor - casual or formal. You won't feel like you are in a booth that looks like it belongs in an arcade. Once guests are in the booth they have license to act how they want for their twenty seconds in the spotlight. This (in our opinion) leads to the best photos imaginable.
What are your payment terms?
A $200 deposit locks in a booth for your date. Your date is not reserved until we receive the deposit. We ask for the balance to be paid 14 days prior to the event. We accept all major credit cards and checks.
How far in advance can I book my event?
Anytime. Reservations are typically secured 6 months - 1 year in advance. Saturday is our busiest day, so we encourage you to check availability early. If you know you want a photo booth, it's best to put down the deposit to lock in your date, even if it's months away.
Do you do outdoor events?
We need to make sure the booth is protected from the elements - sun, wind, and rain. These elements challenge a cameras limits and can compromise your photos. Contact us to discuss the particulars of what you are thinking.
Do you have packages?
We list pricing separate and let you build it to your needs. Take what you want, leave the rest.
