I ALREADY HAVE A PHOTOGRAPHER, WHY SHOULD I GET A PHOTO BOOTH?
In many cases, photographers work very long hours (easily 12hr days, and over 3000 pictures) so they leave the party after dinner, or after the first dance, which is a unique problem because that is when all the fun starts! We offer guests an opportunity to take as many professional, fun, and memorable pictures when the photographer is no longer there, or is busy capturing other guests. Your guests have dressed up, they look great, give them the opportunity to capture it!
I DON'T KNOW, IS IT WORTH IT?
People as us all the time, is it worth it? Each client is different, and different functions, have different desired outcomes. Almost always the desired outcome is for guests, to be entertained, have fun, and make awesome memories. Flash Booth Ottawa is a hit at every event! The real value is when you and your guests look back on the pictures in 5 months, or 5 years, and all the warm feelings come back to you!
RETIREMENT PARTIES? MILESTONE BIRTHDAYS? KIDS EVENTS? GRADUATIONS? CORPORATE EVENTS? HEADSHOTS?
Yep! We do it all! We are in the business of helping clients capture the good times of life. Imagine you worked somewhere for 30 years, and when it's all over, all you have a some old polaroids to remember it? Or a blurry picture that Jim from accounting took on his blackberry? Leave it to the pros, FlashBooth Ottawa will work with you to ensure your event is a success!
WHAT KIND OF PHOTO BOOTH IS FLASH BOOTH OTTAWA?
Well, simply put, it's an AWESOME photo booth! In detail, It's an open-air Photo Booth (no walls), meaning a few key things: Flashbooth Ottawa fits a lot of people (up to 10), professional image quality, the attendants is fun and friendly, and the whole experience is open, and shareable, and a lot of fun!
I GOT QUOTED $499 FOR A 4-HOUR EVENT WITH PRINTING. CAN YOU GUYS PRICE MATCH?
Sorry, nope! We’ve heard about the cheap photo booths that can be found in the underworld of Google and Craigslist, and before you take the risk of working with these questionable vendors, and please be careful with who you book for your event. We’ve seen many cases where clients are extremely disappointed by vendors offering a shocking level of service. Hidden fees, terrible communication, no back up equipment, taking low quality pictures on a tablet, these are some of the stories we’ve encountered. We’ve invested considerable time and resources into our product and our staff to ensure the service is seamless, and exceptional, and that our price is WORTH your investment, and we’re confident that you’ll agree with us if we work together.
HOW DOES THE FLASH BOOTH OTTAWA WORK?
It’s super easy! Easy as a piece of cake! Or is it easy as a piece of pie?! In any case, it’s easy! You walk up to the Flash Booth Photo Booth, our super fantastic Flash Booth Pro’s will greet you, and give you a quick play by play. They will ask you to stand in front of our sleek, sharp Flash booth. You will notice our big, clear monitor right away, and you will be able to see yourself in real time, to nail that Oscar worthy pose. Then you will use the touch screen to start capturing the photos! Press snap, and the screen will show a count down, 3,2,1…FLASH. We can configure it to take 1, 3, 5, pictures every few seconds, so you can get some fun, spontaneous poses! Then you will see the pictures on the same touch screen right in front of you. Take as many as you want, then pick up your prints (if included), and a little card that will help you find them on your private online gallery!
DO I HAVE TO PAY A DEPOSIT?
Yes! We ask that a 25% deposit is required to secure your date and confirm the booking. For custom events, a 50% deposit is required.
WHAT IF I WANT TO KEEP THE FLASHBOOTH OTTAWA PAST THE HOUR LIMIT?
Running behind schedule? More guests than expected? Your guests having fun? Not a problem, we charge an hourly rate of $175 for every hour we go over what’s included in the original booking contract.
DO YOU SELL PRINTS OF THE PHOTOS?
Nope! If you book a FlashBooth experience that includes printing, then we print as many as you guests want, for free!
