Frequently asked questions about our photobooth hire services
How does delivery and pick up work?
No-one wants a troupe of buffoons bumbling a pathway through guests at a special event. No problem! Our attendants will slip with Ninja-like silence into your venue and set up your booth with stealth, efficiency and a smile on their face.
We have top secret knowledge of all of Auckland’s nightspots, hot spots and happening places. You can trust us to sneak in the back way and appear as if by magic just where your party needs us most.
Cross our palms with silver (or any cash will do) and we can even have your booth set up before your first guest says “Oooh a photo booth!” Likewise, unaffected by the morning after blues, we will spring energetically forth the following day to pack our booth away if you simply can’t bear to watch it being removed while you are still partying hard.
How does the photo booth work?
Well, we could tell you but we would have to kill you, so let’s just say all you need to know is whilst you are seated comfortably on our padded seat and admiring your newly acquired Harry Potter glasses and afro ensemble, the only tiresome decision you will need to make is whether to press the ‘black & white’ or ‘colour’ button.
While divesting yourself of your latest prop selection from our extensive selection, your two photostrips will appear as if by magic from the chute.
At this point in time you will either a) shriek with laughter and run around showing all your friends or b) grab more props and barge your way to the front of the photobooth queue in order to rectify pose #4 where your false nose slipped sideways just as you were taking the best selfie ever.
How good are the prints, how long do they take to dry?
Well, we’ll try not to be offended by your rude question – they are unimaginably fabulous of course! Only the very best for our customers – our cameras and printers are of such exquisite quality we wouldn’t dream of divulging their make lest our unworthy competitors attempt to emulate our unrivaled excellence.
Your photostrips emerge ready to be pawed, oohed and aahed over instantly. As they most certainly will be!
Why do we need an attendant if the booth is so easy to operate?
You my dear, do not need an attendant because you are always impeccably behaved. However your friends sometimes need a gentle reminder to put their clothes back on and comport themselves with dignity.
Plus seriously – why would you not want one of our gorgeous, friendly, funny and involved attendants helping you and your guests have a fabulous time and get the best possible photos?
How far in advance do we need to book?
Word of our fabulousness (yes that is a word!) has spread so that at peak times such as wedding and school ball seasons you really should get a tickle on and book well in advance to avoid FOMO.
Do guests have to pay as they enter?
Your wonderful host has taken care of all that boring payment stuff and hired the booth for your pleasure so that, as a guest, you can enjoy uninterrupted use. No filthy lucre need change hands at your special event!
Can we bring our own album and pen?
Well, alright, if you must! But why would you when we can provide you with the classiest dang album you’ll ever find and an experienced professional album-compiler in our wonderful attendant.
Plus if you choose one of our albums, you know you’ll be receiving a gorgeous memento at the end of your function.
Trust us – your ebay bargain could turn into a photo dot nightmare once Uncle Ted’s astigmatism and cousin Bob’s love of fine draught beer have left their indelible mark on your once pristine book! Why not relax in the certain knowledge that we have tactfully moved your mother’s bestie’s red wine glass to a nearby table and stopped sticky young guests flicking through your perfect pages while eating their spag bol?
What is the Keepsake Album?
Why – only the very best acid-free, high gsm, hand made by our top secret bookbinder, gol-darned album you’ll ever find, that’s what!
We have designed the perfect album to hold your photo strips -loads of room for special messages from your guests, our bespoke album is a fitting repository for your Little Black Photo Booth prints.
As the prints come out of the booth our lovely attendant will place one copy in the album and invite your guests to leave a message. We provide the silver pens to ensure your guests share their love in style.
Our keepsake album is a professional, acid free album, handmade by an artisan bookbinder. 28 x 36cm, with a black buckram cover and beautifully bound.
This little beauty will be admired by your great great grandchildren and beyond. Take a look here to find out more!
What is the Branded Booth option?
There are two ways Little Black Photobooth can be personalized for your event:
Every photo strip can have your names, date of function, logo or design at the top and around the photos. There is no extra charge for this and we can even offer some professional design.
Complete covering of the outside of the booth can be achieved by wrapping the booth in vinyl or coreflute. Each end is 800w x 1800h and printing of digital files allows you complete design control. We can also arrange and design the look for you for a very reasonable cost. For more detail and exact print dimensions please contact us.
