FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Why should I hire a photobooth?

For any type of event, a photobooth will be a that fun added extra, not only does it capture your night but people love getting a little crazy and loose inside a photo booth. The biggest benefit of having a photo booth at an event is that every guest gets a chance to pose in front of the camera. In large events, it is quite impossible for a professional photographer to take pictures of every guest the way they want. With a photo booth added to the event, all of your guests can easily take turns at getting their photos clicked, either individually or with friends. The resulting album makes a fantastic keepsake, filled with individual photos and messages from your guests.

Should I hire an open or closed photo booth?

This is why Be My Booth is so popular we have the ability to give you either an open or closed photo booth the choice is entirely up to you!! The benefits of hiring an Open Photo Booth is that The OPEN Photobooth is a modern alternative to traditional enclosed photobooths. Its unique open-air set up is designed for party life, and is much more inclusive and entertaining than traditional booths. Instead of guests having to line up with only a box to stare at, they can watch the fun going on, and get involved by shouting suggestions or jumping into the shot. The other benefits to an open photo booth is that your backdrop can be whatever you desire, we have a stunning lace backdrop to choose or you can have it against a certain wall, gardens or even design your own backdrop with your logo designs etc on it. The benefits of a closed photo booth is that people do not get shy, being behind that certain people think they are invincible and therefore the photos can be a little funnier and more outgoing. We also have a few coloured backdrops for the closed photo booths too.
