SIMPLE RATES

We know our clients have busy schedules and they want clear and transparent information.  We don't believe in filling out a form for our photo booths just to know what we charge because we dislike it just as much as you do.  Choose below which photo booth would fit your event and you'll be taken to it's current rates page.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

FAQ

 
 
WHY SHOULD I CHOOSE YOU GUYS?

We've been in your shoes before; searching endlessly for the right photo booth to entertain our guests.  What did we find out?  There's a big difference between what you 'think' you get, and what you actually get in terms of quality in the land of photo booths.

Here at 5M Photobooth we made it simple.  We asked ourselves:

Why can't we get the best of everything packaged into one?  Provide the best photo booth experience that even we would be crazy about.  Simple.  Our exposed Signature Photo Booth (not to pick any favorites) is the epitome of best of the best, which is why we're not shy to show off every part of it.  

 

We want our clients to take pictures with their friends and have the option to print 1 to 4 copies so at least the majority of them all get a copy.  Voila, Quadruple prints was born.  Never again will you have to play rock-paper-scissors to see who gets the 1 copy printed for a group picture, or pay extra for that matter.

We want our clients to look like they came out of a magazine shoot, which is why we attached a 5 foot diameter octobox powered by a german engineered studio-grade monolight to create an enormous spread of beautiful diffused lighting.  Never again will your photos look like there was a dark evil cloud surrounding you because the flash was only bright enough to light 3 feet in front of it.  Bad cloud.  Never will your face look orange, or your white wedding dress look blue because the external flash couldn't keep a consistent color temperature.  Remember, you're suppose to look like you finished a magazine shoot.

We want you to laugh, and to laugh even more when you see your friends, family, or special someone streaming endlessly on our 32" HD digital slideshow.  Never again will that awesome photo you took earlier in the night go unnoticed.

Quality is not an upgrade at 5M Photobooth, it's the standard, which is why we'll be here every step of the way to make sure your event has the photo booth experience it's suppose to have.

 
WHAT TYPE OF PHOTO BOOTH IS THIS?

We operate an exposed open-air photo booth for your pleasure.  It's not your typical enclosed booth, as there are no walls or casing surrounding it, giving it an exposed presence.  This leaves a more open area between our booth and the backdrop making it extra visually appealing to see everyone's crazy poses while also being able to include additional people into the fun.  Our setup includes the backdrop, photo booth, social media kiosk, printer on side table, and another side table displaying the party props.

 
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

Our rates is differentiated only by the hours required, combined with any extra add-ons to customize your experience.  A 50% deposit of the total fee, to reserve your date, would be due upon signing of the contract.  The remaining balance would be due 14 days before the date of your event.  Goods and Services Tax (GST) of 5% is not included in our posted rates.

 
WHAT IS YOUR CANCELLATION POLICY?

In the event of a cancellation, the initial deposit of 50% is non-refundable.  If cancellation occurs when full payment is already made, only the full payment, minus deposit, will be issued as a refund in the same form as your original payment.  Cancellations made less than 31 days before the event date are subject to a $200 cancellation fee.

 
CAN I MAKE A DATE CHANGE?

Requests to make a date change of the event must be received by email or in writing at least 21 days in advance of the initial event date.  Change of date is subject to availability and issuance of a new service contract.  If there is no availability for alternate dates, the initial deposit of 50% will be forfeited as well as the declaration of the service contract being null and void.

 
WHAT IS QUADRUPLE PRINTS?

Every single photo booth company states that they offer unlimited prints.  What they actually mean is you will receive unlimited sessions accompanied with 1 (4 x 6 inch) print or 2 (2 x 6 inch) strips each session.

At 5M Photobooth we offer 1 to 4 (4 x 6 inch) prints or 2 to 4 (2 x 6 inch) strips each session of our Signature Booth that is unlimited until the end of your booking time.  The option to choose multiple copies is part of the easy navigation of our HD advanced touchscreen display.  This is our industry leading Quadruple Prints that is an Inclusive Feature affixed to our hourly rate packages.

 
WHAT HAPPENS ON THE DAY OF MY EVENT?

We arrive 1.5 hours before the start of your event to setup, depending on the logistics of your venue.  Upon arrival we will call the 'Point of Contact' you mentioned in the Event Info you filled out, prior to the payment of your initial deposit.  Your 'Point of Contact' is the person you entrust to meet up and show us where our setup area is, along with access to the closest 120V electrical outlet, and where our dedicated on-site parking stall will be.  

During the event our on-site photo booth operators will be present to assist and help things move happily along.  With the inclusion of our Social Media Kiosk, HD Digital Slideshow, and Photo Booth, there'll be no shortage of smiles, fun and laughter.  Nearing the end of your event we will politely let your guests know our time of closure and then proceed the process of breaking down our equipment at the end of your event.  Breaking down our setup and vacating the venue typically takes up to 45 minutes.

 
HOW MUCH SPACE DO YOU NEED?

We would need an ideal 10 ft x 10 ft footprint with at least 9 ft of overhead space adjacent to an easily accessible 110V electrical outlet.

 
WHAT IS AN IDLE HOUR?

An idle hour is when our booth is completely setup, but not available for use.  This add-on can be advantageous to clients who want to prolong our service at a discounted rate compared to a package with full operational hours.  Reasons for implementing an idle hour could range from a scheduled dinner service (or any other time guests are less likely to use it) to having the booth completely setup at a much earlier hour before the event start time.

 
WHAT IS A SOCIAL MEDIA KIOSK?

After you've taken pictures and picked up your prints, your images are transmitted over our provided LTE Wi-Fi network (dependant upon cellular signal transmission) directly to the Social Media Kiosk.  Only there your guests can view and share via email, text, and various social networks.  If the LTE Wi-Fi network is down, all sharing requests will be queued up offline until the Social Media Kiosk is connected online again.  This is where your guests can really amplify their photo gratification, all thanks to you.

CAN I CHOOSE BETWEEN COLOR OR BLACK AND WHITE PHOTOS?
 

Yes!  On our HD advanced touchscreen display you and your guests can switch between the two color modes with just the tap of your finger.

 
HOW DO WE GET OUR PHOTOS DURING AND AFTER OUR EVENT?
CAN WE SEE OURSELVES WHEN WE TAKE PICTURES?

During your event there are two ways of receiving your images:

  • Grabbing a prop, striking your pose, and then collect your physical prints from our nearby printer.

  • After you finished your session, do your best strut over to the Social Media Kiosk (if it's in your package).  On the display you'll see the photos you've just taken, where you'll have the option to share whichever you choose via Facebook and Twitter with just the tap of your finger.  You can even send copies through email or text to anyone you choose... even yourself!

After your event we will upload your photos to our online gallery which will take up to 48 hours.  From there you will be notified by email with a direct link to your gallery where you're free to view, download, and share with whomever you want.  Your gallery will also be accessible through our website on the 'Find Your Pictures' link.  If you opted for password protection regarding access into your gallery, your guests will be made well aware of the password during the day of the event.  They will also be sent a follow-up email, if they supplied their address through the Social Media Kiosk, when the online gallery is ready accompanied with the password.

 

You bet you can!  Each and everyone of your guest's smiling faces will be glorified in our HD Advanced Touchscreen Display during every photo session.
