Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I rent from Boone Photo Booth?

The quality of photo booths varies dramatically from vendor to vendor. At Boone Photo Booth, we provide an exceptional photo booth experience with our amazing props and experienced photographers. We have been in business for 10 years, longer than any other photo booth company in the High Country. Providing large or small events with a professional, custom photo booth experience is what we do best!


How early should I book?

Typically, most clients book 1-6 months in advance but it all depends on availability. Keep in mind that weekends during spring, summer, and fall are usually the first dates to go.


How much space do I need?

We use an open-air setup for all indoor events. A 10ft by 10ft space with 10ft high high ceilings is the minimum. If you are having a large event where the booth will get heavy traffic the whole time, or you are adding a guest book, allowing extra space for us to work is a good idea. For outdoor events we use a 10’x10′ waterproof tent. This can also be set up inside a large event tent.  

Is an enclosed booth an option?

Our standard setup is an open-air booth, which allows large groups to use it and takes up less space at your event. If you would prefer a more private setting for your guests as they have their photos taken, we also offer enclosure options available for an up charge. With our indoor setup, we can add satin pipe and drape walls. Outdoors we are able to provide our custom branded easy-up tent with vinyl walls to protect guests from the elements.  


What do I need to provide?

We require an electricity hookup to be provided within 50 feet of booth setup location, on a flat spot of ground. Also, a 5’ or 6’ table, with table cloth, to use for props will need to be provided at event. 


What kind of file do you need for custom logos on the photo strips?

For the best image quality we prefer a 300 DPI, JPG file format 2”x3” at least.

How do we get the photos?

Along with unlimited prints at your event, we will also upload them to an online gallery 24 hours after the event. You can have this gallery private, password-protected, or make it public. If you choose for your event to be public, we print the Gallery information on the bottom of the photo strip so your guests have easy access to retrieval following your event.  


Do you charge a travel fees?

There is no travel fee for events in Avery, Ashe, Alleghany, Watauga, or Wilkes County. If your event is outside this area, please contact us. We have traveled throughout NC, SC and TN for events and are happy to give you a travel quote.

What about idle time?

We recommend sitting down with us to discuss your event timeline. There is a $50 idle time fee for each hour we have the booth set up, prior to, or following, your paid time. For example, your ceremony and reception are at the same location, in close proximity. Your wedding starts at 5pm, but the reception does not start until 7pm, and that is when you have selected us to start the booth. We suggest you have us set the booth up prior to the ceremony time so we do not disturb. Same goes for after an event. If you choose to hire us for only 4 hours, but your reception is still taking place and you do not wish for us to tear down in the middle of your reception, you may choose to include idle time. We strongly urge you not to do this, as it typically just gets better! 😉


Are there any other fees?

We really do try to keep things simple. The only other fees that we must charge are NC Sales Tax.

We love to meet new folks, so give us a call or email us today so we can discuss your upcoming event in more detail!
