Photostrip is founded by JJ Jumoc-Casas, a San Francisco based photographer & cinematographer. He also co-founded Motionscope Weddings, providing full photography and videography coverage before focusing solely on commercial clients with 8:45a.
We realize that half the fun of a photobooth is taking the picture(s) and walking away with a photo print. While we do integrate digital ways to share the images via SMS texting and email shares, we love it when guests come home with a printed memory from the event.
4 hours is the sweet spot for majority of events. For weddings, it covers the cocktail hour plus the dancing portion. For corporate events, 4 hours too covers the peak hours. If you do happen to want more hours coverage, we only charge $199/hr after the first 4 hours.
We understand that 4 hours might be too much so we do offer 2 hours packages at $699. Please do understand that this would still include the additional 1.5 hours required to setup and tear down the booth. If you do decide to extend the booth on-location, the additional charge is $199/hr.
We arrive at least 1.5 hours before the agreed time for the booth to be open to set it all up. An 8x8' area is needed to operate the booth successfully as it provides space for the booth itself, 8' wide background and enough space for people to enter and exit. We'll also need access to standard 120V AC electrical power in which our Photobooth will be plugged into for the duration of the operation. We use a 25' foot extension cable that will be taped down so guests will not trip over it.
Our white background is our gold standard as it's clean, minimal and flattering as it helps actually throw light back to subjects making for a great studio quality photo. We are more than happy though to work with your own backdrop if you prefer.
We don't offer any props as we believe each party is its own and believe that the focus should be you and your guests. Plus, one "standard" prop box won't fit all parties. However, we can personalized our booth props to fit your theme for $199 as we'll personally shop for you and make sure to bring props that will make your booth experience even better.
After the event, all photos (both singles and photostrips) are uploaded so you and your guests can download the full-resolution images for free through your unique URL i.e. http://photost.rip/event-name
There is a 50% deposit upon signing the agreement. The remaining balance is due anytime before or on the day of the event. The image gallery will be available ASAP but guests cannot download the images until balance is fully paid.
We'd love to have a meal reserved for our technician. Otherwise, let us know if we have to pack our own PB&J sandwich along with a CapriSun.
LET'S GOOOO. Fill out the form so we can hold your date for you. We'll guard it from anyone else who wants Photostrip.co on your date. :)
