How does the booth work?  Guests will have a blast selecting from the provided props prior to entering the booth. Once guests are situated inside the fully enclosed booth, the series of instructions as well as four photos will begin automatically, about 5 seconds apart. As the guests exit the booth and remove their props, they will have their photo strips in just a few seconds.  They will have the option to either keep both photo strips, or to keep one strip and leave one in the scrapbook for the host.  Shortly after your event, a digital copy of the photo booth images will be mailed to the host.

Can the photo booth be setup outside?  If there is shelter provided such as a tent or cover as well as an electrical outlet, the booth can be set up outdoors. However in inclement weather, the booth cannot operate. Your rental fee will be pro-rated due to bad weather.
