Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How does it work?

A: Grab some friends, push aside the curtain (we’ve got several colors available), follow the on-screen instructions (there’s a monitor inside so you can see how you look), primp and preen while checking yourself out on the screen, and let the booth work its magic.  Vogue.  Step out, laughing hysterically, and collect your prints- there are three copies printed with each session.  Rinse and repeat.  After the party, check online for all the pictures from the night; they’re all uploaded to Facebook.  Do anything you want with them- print them big, share them on Facebook, freak out Grandma.

Q: How big is it?  Will it fit on my favorite elevator?

A: The booth is 6′ wide x 3′ deep x 6.5′ tall.  It breaks down into several manageable pieces, and will fit on your favorite elevator.  It’s a bit tricky if stairs are involved.  If your venue has stairs, please let us know beforehand.

Q: What’s this thing made of?  Will it go with my drapes?

A: The booth is made of glossy white plastic and aluminum.  It looks a little like if Apple designed a photo booth.  We also have several colors of curtains.

Q: How do the pictures compare to a traditional photo booth?

A: Light years ahead.  We use a state-of-the-art digital camera coupled with professional lighting to achieve gorgeous, flattering images, which are both saved for later viewing and printed using a speedy high-end dye-sublimation printer.  That’s the same type of printer used in photo labs- quick, reliable, and most importantly, capable of printing beautiful images.  We’re confident enough to say that you won’t find better photos in any other photo booth.  Justin, owner of Max Photography, has a photography degree, and designed and built the booth to take the best possible pictures.

Q: What does a rental include?

A: With your rental, you get the photo booth delivered and set-up at least 30 minutes before your event begins.  All night long, you and your guests get as many turns as you’d like in the booth- there’s no arbitrary limit to the number of times you can use it.  We’ll keep a photo booth technician there during the duration of your rental to make sure everything runs smoothly.  If you’d like, we can supply a box of incredible props (seriously, these are really nice props) to help jumpstart everyone’s creativity.  Each print is a triple strip; we’re the only photo booth in Austin that offers this.  The strips also point your guests in the direction of the website where all the images will be available after the event.  We upload them to Facebook so you and your guests can download, print, or share the pictures, all for free.  We’ll have a thumb drive of all your photos ready immediately after the event, so don’t forget to pick that up! After your event, we’ll pack up and head out.
