How is the Merriment Co. photobooth different?
Forget the curtains. Forget squeezing into that little black box. Our ultra sleek open air concept booth means more people, bigger poses, better quality photos, and more fun. We're a boutique photobooth rental because we focus on finding the best looking backdrops, unique props, and delivering the highest quality images possible - tailoring it all to to match your event. Your event is unique. You photobooth should too. We challenge you to find another photobooth that gives you the customization options that we do AND better style AND quality. We call it the photobooth trifecta and its uncommon.
Digital booth vs. prints?
With either option, you get a customized "print" tailored to include your event name, logo, or monogram.
The difference is that one is a digital image and the other will be physical prints from our photo printer. For both options, when your guests finish their photobooth session (typically 3 photos), their photos will appear on your customized print. If you have a "digital booth", your guests will see their photo session on screen AND at our ipad social media sharing station. From our ipad, they can opt to email, text, or share the print to facebook or the 'gram. If you add prints to your package, your guests will still have the digital copy to share BUT they'll also get a physical printout to take with them.
How much space do you need?
We’ll need roughly 10 SF of space with a 3-pronged power outlet within 15 feet.
Do you do outdoor events?
Weather permitting, we do. BUT only if the booth will be setup under a covered area and on a hard surface (concrete, patio, etc).
How long do you need to set up?
We will need access to your venue (1) hour before coverage begins to set up. If we'll be setting up in an area that could be distrubtive to your event, we can arrive earlier to set up. We call it "idle" time and idle time can be added to your package for $50/hr.
How many people can fit in the booth?
We've seen as many as 10 in a shot. Can you beat that?
How will my photos be delivered?
Within 48hrs, we'll email you a link to your event's entire gallery of high res photos. You can download all your photos right from this link and all the images are yours to keep. We'll also upload your event's digital prints to our facebook page for you guests view, tag, share, and save. In our facebook post, we'll also include a link to the full online gallery so you guests can see and download their individual photos.
How many photos can we take?
Unlimited photo sessions within your rental period.
Can we tailor our photobooth package to a theme?
Heck yes! Themes are our favorite. We can style your backdrop to suit the theme PLUS curate a selection of props that are perfectly suited to your event. In some cases, we even source props that aren’t in our current inventory. Email us with your idea and we’ll be happy to work out the details.
What kind of props do you bring?
We're constantly adding props to our inventory and we pride ourselves on sourcing (and crafting) high quality, non-traditional props. We'll get a gauge on the style/theme of your event and tailor our prop package to suit your event. We’re big believers in keeping the props to a minimum because it tends to let the personality of your guests shine through. We also believe that high quality props make for the best photo so we steer away from party store sunglasses and wigs. Many of our props are vintage or completely one-of-a-kind custom pieces. If there’s something you had in mind, we’re happy to hunt out new props for your event. Email us for details!
Do you travel?
We currently serve the greater philadelphia & the main line areas (primarily between Gladwyne & Lancaster). Events outside of these areas are considered upon request.
