What is a "trip"
>> A trip through the booth is the time it takes for your guests to enter the booth, have their 4 poses and exit the booth. That takes about a minute on average. Trips are always unlimited for the time we are at your event. Your guests may be "faster" than 1 minute, or slower.

What do you mean by "paper print"

>> By default, we make one paper print per trip. A paper print is just what it sounds like, a 4"x6" print that is given to your guest after each trip. Extra sets of paper prints can be purchased in advance. Check the pricing page for details. With our social sharing station, your guests can get a printable file sent to themselves by email or text message, meaning you may not need to provide an extra paper print for them.

Will my guests know how to operate the photo booth?

>> No need for them to figure anything out. We man the booth and trigger the booth sequence for them. This makes the experience easy, efficient and fast.

Are the print layouts customized for us? Who does the work? Can I use my wedding colors?

>> Yep. I will work with you to make sure your event colors, logo and so on can be added to your print layout. You will see the layout ahead of time and can add your personal touch.

Where will you go with the booth? Can you go outdoors?
>> We'll go wherever you are! Included in your fee is 100km of travel, 50 km each way. There will be a travel charge for greater distances. Outdoors? That depends entirely on the weather. Rain, bright sunshine and wind are the enemies. However, one never knows what the weather will be on the day of your event. I'll take the risk if you will. Having said that, it's best to be indoors. The large light fixtures we use tend to attract a lot of flying critters and such.

How much space do you need? Anything else?
>> The booth will fit into a space of 6' by 7' or so. The ceiling needs to be about 8' or more. The booth needs just one electrical outlet within 6'. We also require a 6' or 8' table for props. Please ask your venue for this to be available when we arrive.

Can you explain the Social Sharing please.
>> This is now included with all offerings. Using your venue's wifi, we offer an online gallery that is updated in (near) real time, Within a few minutes of each session ending, the picture file will be displayed on our online web gallery. From here your guests can download the file to their smartphone for Facebooking, Tweeting, Pinteresting, Instagramming or whatever…If there is no wifi signal, the file will be sent later that evening, when we get back to the office and online. This helps keeps your hosting costs down, as there is less need for extra paper prints.

Do I get an online gallery?
>> Yep. Usually up the next day and is up for a year, you and your guests will be able to see the entire gallery of images you and they created. If you wish, the gallery can be password protected. It isn't by default, so please request this if you wish. Included in your fee is the ability to download optimized 4x6 sized files for printing (personal usage only) wherever you wish.

How many people can fit in the booth?
>> The booth can comfortably hold 4-6 adults. If you are flexible on the comfort thing and not *really* hung up on having tons of personal space, up to 8 guests have been able to cooperate well enough and long enough to make pictures. This may not be surprising… more women can fit in at once then men. Guys aren't into touching other men very much. Even for 30 seconds.

What do you mean by "idle time"
>> This is mostly for wedding events. The 2 and 3 hour blocks will fit neatly into your evening. After dinner and speeches are over, there is usually a 2 or 3 hour period of dancing and partying that happens. This fits well with the booth. With the 4 hour or longer service, you may want to break the time up and have an hour earlier in the evening and the rest after dinner. We can do that by adding some idle time. There is a small hourly charge for this. Let's face it, we can't punch out and go home while the booth is idle. Please ask for details on this. It's a case by case kinda thing.

How late into the evening will you stay?
>> OK… this is one of those "elephant in the room" topics. I wish this was something that need not be an issue, but sadly it can be.

Short answer… at events with alcohol, we have a firm end time of 11:00pm. Please factor that in to your timeline.

Longer answer … It has been our experience that alcohol and photo booths can be a bad combination. It's a small space inside the booth and complete cooperation with both us and your fellow booth mates is a key to success and a positive experience. We have found that issues are more common later in the party. Since starting this policy of being closed by 11:00pm, our problems have all but disappeared.

The safety of your guests, ourselves and our equipment is a top priority for us. Our goal is an enjoyable evening for all.

Do you have other backgrounds than white?
>> Hmmmmm. Let me say no and then explain why. We did quite a bit of testing before choosing our "look" We found that colors can easily clash. Patterns can be distracting and look dated. What is a trend in the summer of 20xx may look rather silly in 20yy. White complements every other color. White makes every other color more vibrant and clear. The images created in the booth are about people, not backgrounds. We take our inspiration from glamor type magazines. Very clean covers. Not a lot of visual elements to take away from the model. We make you look fabulous and our choice of a plain white background is a large part of how we do this.

How much of a retainer do I have to put down? When is the final balance due?
>> The retainer to hold your date is $250. You can pay your balance anytime before your event date, or even at your event. If paying at your event, please be ready to take care of this before the photo booth opens. For your convenience, we accept Visa and MasterCard on site via an iPhone. Otherwise we accept cash or a certified check for the final payment.

I've read through these, and I still have questions.
>> Good. I love questions. Call 905-296-3057 or send an email to info@ghphotobooth.ca. I'll get back to you ASAP with answers
