1. Are they a well-established company? Do they have good reviews?
Always do you homework, check that the company have some events under their belts and that you read their reviews. You should be able to easily find a company's reviews via a quick search on google. Don’t be afraid to ask your venue for help or advice on companies they have worked with before. As a general rule, a well-presented company on social media and the web will normally be the better company to work with. Never rush your decision and always compare at least two companies to ensure you are getting the best deal for your needs.
2. What booths do they offer?
There are so many booths that are available for hire, and they all vary in quality. Do not fooled that a photo booth is a photo booth. Some booths use less quality cameras and some use fewer quality printers – so be careful. There are booths that come with cool additional features like wind machines for that glamour shots, some come with video messaging and others come with signing interactive touch screens.

Many companies give you a total price for a certain number of hours but be sure to double check that there are no hidden costs such as printing cost or travel costs. Most companies will offer a minimum package time and price. Normally this would be about £300-400 for 3 or 4 hours, this should include everything you need like prints, props and a guest book. Also ensure that any travel charges are either included or are fair.
4. Are they responsive?
Did the company respond to your calls, emails or enquiry in good time? You need to be able to trust a supplier and a good company should always ensure that they are responding to customers as soon as possible. Never be afraid to ask questions if you are unsure of any details.
5. Have you seen examples of their work?
Check out their website and social media for images, a company should b proud to show off their work and a photo booth company should be no different. You can even ask for a sample of prints to be posted to you and ask for a copy of a digital file, make sure your happy.
