FAQs

WHERE CAN I FIND YOUR PRICES?

All of our prices and package can be found here you just need to decide how long you want us, what format and if you want any add-ons.  If you are wanting to fundraise or look at other options such as charging out prints to your party goers, we can tailor-make a package especially for you.  Oh, and if you want to use us several times, we do offer corporate rates too.  Just get in touch!

 

I WANT TO MAKE MY BOOKING, WHERE TO NOW?

We will send out our booking questions to you, this helps us to personalise the experience for you and also to make sure you have us booked at the optimal times for your event.  Once you return your answers, we will get the invoice and T&Cs to you and you will be locked and loaded!

 

HOW PERSONALISED DO OUR PHOTOS GET?

We can personalise the entire area of the photo whether it is the 2x6 strips or a 4x6 print.  We will gladly send you proofs so you can ok your designs and suggest any changes or additions.  You can send us through your wedding invitations, photographs, colours and themes for us to work with.

 

WHAT IS A "SESSION" AND WHAT DO I GET OUT OF IT?

We talk about "sessions" when it comes to a turn on the booth.  So people will pick out their props, stand in front of the booth and 3 shots will be taken.  There is a 5 second gap in between the photos but you get counted down and see everything on the screen.  In this time you can change your props, poses and positions (if you're fast!).  20-30 seconds later the prints will come out.  And that's a "session"!

 

CAN I GET MORE THAN 2 STRIPS PRINTED IN A SESSION?

We can to more copies per sessons but it will mean an extra cost, but remember, the client will get a CD of ALL of the photos taken at the event to share.  And there is no limit to how many times you can come into the photo booth so there is plenty of opportunity to get a handful.  This is just to help streamline the event and make it fair on everyone.

 

DO I NEED TO TAKE ANY CARE WITH MY NEW PRINTS?

No!  Our prints are all printed on super high quality photographic paper and using the best dye sublimation thermal transfer print method.  I don't know what that means exactly, but I do know it means the photos are instantly ready with absolutely no dry time involved so they won't get damaged by handling them immediately.

 

HOW MANY PEOPLE FIT IN THE BOOTH?

Unlike those photo booths you may have seen around where you hop in and can only fit 2-3 people max.  We think its far more fun with more people so our booth is open and currently our personal record is 16 people.  We can physically slide the booth back to accomodate when necessary but we are also experts in adjusting groups for the ultimate coverage.

 

CAN YOU COME SET UP EARLIER IN THE DAY IF WE BOOK YOU FOR THE EVENING?

If possible yes.  It will depend on whether we have other bookings to attend to during the day and these can be booked up until the day before.  We are a business and rely on our bookings to keep going and we will always be available for people to book us around your time.  We do guarantee your time once you have confirmed and dicussed all the options with you and give ourselves adequate time to set up and pack down and transport to any other events.  Therefore we can never 100% guarantee that we will allow our machine to be out of action for the most part of a day for a 3 hour booking for instance.

 

WHAT DO I NEED TO HAVE READY FOR YOU WHEN YOU COME TO MY EVENT?

We are pretty basic in our needs.  A steady, flat surface, sun/rain proof shelter, a wall is preferable to work against (marquee walls are totally fine) and a nearby appropriate and safe power supply.  The photo booth does have its own light but it does work more efficiently with some good light in the area too.  If you want any specific backgrounds or props we can always work with these too.  We also do try to go check out a venue in advance if we haven't been there before.  If you know exactly where you want us, please do let us know.

We also do need to be prepared and know about any stairs or access thats a bit tricky for the car and trolley.

 

DO WE NEED TO FEED AND WATER YOU?

No, not necessary.  Think of us like yukkas.  We will usually bring stuff for ourselves so long as you don't mind us bringing it into the venue.  Usually if we have several bookings in one day we are just on the run the whole time so we try take a moment when we can.

 

WHAT HAPPENS AT THE END OF OUR BOOKING TIME?

If we don't have another booking to head to, you may decide to extend us if you want to carry on the fun, that's no problem with us and we will let you know if that is an option beforehand.  If we do get extended we will send you an invoice for the extra time a day or so after.  When we do leave, we will pack up and load the car and a CD will be burned on the spot (where possible) with all your photos and we will hunt you down to give it to you or someone we know you trust before we set off.  Any added extra you have ordered with be completed at a later date and delivered to with 2-3 weeks.

 

I'M NOT TOO KEEN FOR EVERYTHING TO GO ON FACEBOOK, CAN I OPT OUT?

Absolutely!  When you receive your questions there is the opportunity to say whether you want a folder of all photostrips put onto the Flash Mob Photo Booth Taranaki's or your own Facebook page or not.  Some people are happy to have it up instantly to start sharing and tagging while others want to do something for themselves.  We may choose some to put in our galleries and blogs but it will usually be the key people (married couple) etc...

 

I HAVE A SPECIFIC THEME AND WOULD LOVE YOU GUYS TO CARRY IT ON.

No worries! We have a really good relationship with the New Plymouth Operatic Society Costume Hire so we can access HEAPS of stuff for loads of themes.  There may be an extra cost involved and we will require adequate notice.
