*Contacting us via sms, direct email, or through call, will not assure that your booking is finalized. Using the form in our Book It! tab will help both of us keep track of our back-and-forths.
How far in advance do we need to make a booking?
At the latest, you must book months before your event one week the latest. We do recommend that you book your event as early as possible to avoid losing your date to another client. We do one event per day in most cases.
What if I need to change my date?
Requests must be made at least 60 days before the event and should be sent via email. This will depend on our availability on the new chosen date. In the event that you need to change the date less than 60 days from the original you will need to pay the full amount of your chosen package.
What happens if I want to cancel my booking?
If you want to cancel your booking, your initial deposit will not be returned.
How long can you stay at our event?
All our packages include a 3-hour service time, and there is a different additional hourly rate for every package. We can also accommodate full-day and multi-day events (contact us for inquiries).
How much space do you need for the booth?
We need at least 3 x 3 meters (about 10 x 10 feet) of levelled space to operate. We also need (1) 220V power outlet, free from any load within at least 50 feet/15 meters away.
How much time do you need for setup and pack-up?
We usually arrive 90 - 60 mins ahead of the agreed Booth Time. We leave 30 - 60 mins after the service time.
What are Idle Hours/Stop Time?
Idle Hours/Stop Time cover any time that the booth is fully assembled but not open for photos such as during main events, programs, or basically any part of the event that needs the full attention of all the guests. All packages have an optional 30-minute idle time. Time specifics will be arranged during the booking procedure. You can have additional stop time at P250.00 per 30 minutes.
Do you work at outdoor events?
Yes, as long as the weather permits us to. We need to be totally dry, protected from strong winds and direct sunlight. We work with equipment that doesn't mix well with water, wind and heat. Our lighting works best on controlled lighting conditions.
Package & Print
How much do you charge?
Our packages have different prices but our cheapest package is the Basic I, which costs P6,000.00. We also have a selection of add-ons to help make your chosen package even better (with a price, of course).
How many copies can we get of a print?
You can get 1 - 4 copies of a print depending on what package you decide on. Our Basic, Duo, and Solo packages include 1 copy per print. The Classic prints 2 copies per print. And Insta includes 2 - 4 copies per print depending on your chosen layout. Multiple copies of a print is considered an add-on and the costs vary per package.
How do we get the digital copies of the photos?
Digital copies will be given to you in a flash drive after the event. They may also be sent to you online via Dropbox or Google Drive.
How can guests view and share the photos?
We will upload the photos within 24 - 48 hours after the event. Photos will be published on our Facebook page where your guest can view and share them any time.
Can we opt out of sharing our photos on social media?
We can create a private gallery for your event which you can access through our website at the Find Your Photos tab. The password for the gallery will be given 24 - 48 hours after the event.
Can I customize my backdrop/theme?
We have a wide range of available backdrops for you to choose from, but you can also have your backdrop custom-made for an extra fee.
Do you offer green screen technology?
Sadly, no. And we have no plans on adding it to our options for backdrops.
What is a backdrop?
Backdrops are usually cloths, either made of fabric or tarpaulin, which are used as a background of a photo. They help draw focus onto the person being photographed.
What is a theme?
Themes are graphics or patterns used to design the frame of the photo booth print. They help add emphasis to the title and details of the event. It can create a mood or vibe that coincides with the occasion.
What is a layout?
Layouts are set templates for the positioning and size of the actual photo and the frame of the print.
How do I view a sample of the final print?
After paying the initial deposit for the booking, you'll be asked for your preferred, background, theme, and layout, together with the event details. Afterward, the combination will be made and will be sent back to you via email for your approval.
Can you help me think of a good combination of a background and theme for my event?
Of course! We'll just need the details of the event and the events overall theme and we'll figure out a combo from our catalogue that would work perfectly for the occasion.
I like a design for the backdrop/theme, but I want to change the color. Can I have that done? Will it cost extra?
Yes, you may. Don't hesitate to let us know once you've booked and paid for the initial deposit. Minor changes such as these will not cost extra.
What if I don't want a backdrop?
No problem! You can opt out of a backdrop, especially if the scenery is just that beautiful. Opting out of having a backdrop though doesn't give you a discount from our packages.
