You Get What You Pay For!

Groupon, LivingSocial, Amazon, as consumers we absolutely LOVE these deals! But here’s a one stop ALERT for those looking for the best deal for photo booths! It is especially true you get what you pay for in this industry and a photo booth service is not something you short yourself on especially on a special, one time event! We actually experienced a horror story for a poor bride this past weekend!

This bride had gone the “cheaper route” and purchased a deal on Amazon, the photo booth company had shown up to set up for the wedding, refused to go up a few steps, and left without performing a service 30 minutes before her wedding started! On a technicality, they were able to keep the money paid AND not perform the services promised! The bride and her planner called us and we rushed over and were able to provide her with quality photo booth services! Keep in mind, nobody thinks that “this will happen at my event”, and she definitely didn’t either and within 20 minutes this inconsiderate company could have truly ruined her wedding! And I quote her:

…while I was in the middle of taking wedding photos, my Electra Cruise vendor called to tell me that Sterling Photobooth were packing up and leaving. Luckily, my Electra Cruise vendor was able to get me another photobooth, Photo Booth Pro, just in time when the reception had started. Photo Booth Pro saved the day!!!” – Sarah (Review left on Wedding Wire)

This is only one example of the horrible calls we get! Most of these companies will not book on weekends, have massive blackout dates, and in the worse case scenario, will not even show up. We recently received a call from another guest of ours who was basically scammed out of her deposit by a company called Rok it photo booths, you can look them up on Yelp because apparently they were not the only ones!

Here’s some guidelines when looking to rent a photo booth:

1. Check their website, take a look at their photo booths! Is it just a box? Can they barely fit 4 people inside?
2. How many events have they actually done? We’ve done over 2000 events, from Bat Mitzvahs to the Golden Globes parties
3. Check their reviews, are they on Wedding Wire? are they on MyFoxLA? Yelp? The Knot? We’re proud to be #1 Three years in a row for Wedding Wire and the Knot!

You don’t go to a fine dining restaurant to eat fastfood. Your special event deserves the best service to capture one of the most important times of your life!
