Get to know her work, review her portfolio, ask for her references, and be sure to communicate your needs to her. Here are some considerations to keep in mind when selecting your next Columbus, Ohio event photographer and photo booth provider.
Understand what photo booth options are available
A professional photo booth provider will have a variety of photo booth props, backdrops and prints to make your event truly special. You will want to work with a design professional with a keen eye who will be able to capture the moment of your event by providing you a memorable photo booth backdrop. There is a big difference between working with an unskilled vendor versus a professional who takes the time to invest in high-quality, professional photo booths. A truly professional photo booth provider will have a variety of different photo booth options for every kind of client and event.
Confirm your specific needs for having the photo booth at your Columbus, Ohio event
It is necessary to let your photo booth provider know the intended use for the photographs you receive from your photo booth. Many events that feature a photo booth use the photographs simply to provide a memento. Other events have a more specific use for the photographs. The photographs may be used in marketing or in promotional materials and be published on social media platforms. The specific use of the photograph will often dictate the backdrop for the photo booth.
Ask for a list of everything that is included with your photo booth for your Columbus, Ohio event
Again, it’s best to ask your photo booth provider exactly what the quoted price includes. You’ll need to create a budget to ensure your photography and photo booth needs can be met within the constraints of that budget.
- How many hours of service?
- Is setup/tear down included?
- Will the provider bring props and a prop table?
- Does it include a backdrop?
- Will you get copies of all the photos taken?
Request a list of photo booth features
The photo booths of today are quite a bit different than what they were even a few years ago. Many photo booths offer different sized prints, digital images, social media options, video messaging, and virtual photo booth experiences. For instance, if you are looking for a photo booth that makes animated GIFs, you will want to be sure your provider includes that as an option. It is your event – don’t hesitate to communicate your needs.
Know that your photo booth will be producing high quality photographs
Whether it is a virtual or live event, you need to be confident your provider is going to deliver a finished product that meets your specific needs. No one wants to pay for a photo booth and receive low quality prints. When choosing a company to work with, it is best to utilize the services of a professional photographer who not only is committed to providing you the equipment you need to make your photo booth a success but will also produce high quality photographs that can be used to memorialize your special day.
Confirm the photo booth will have an attendant
Of course, even if a photo booth works perfectly, it won’t be any good to your guests if they can’t figure out how to use it. Hire a photo booth provider only if they provide an attendant with the rental. Photo booth equipment is sensitive and expensive so it is best to leave its care to the professionals.
Make certain your venue can accommodate a photo booth
A small historic venue with narrow doorways and staircases will eliminate some photo booth options. Likewise, an outdoor venue can be limiting. Be sure to go over the details with your photo booth provider to avoid any hiccups on the day of your event.
Look through your provider’s portfolio and ask for references
Get references from your photo booth provider. You will want to take a look at your photo booth provider’s portfolio to make sure they capture photographs in a way that’s consistent with the purpose for your event. Shellee Fisher Photography & Design is happy to provide you both access to her portfolio and her references from an array of Columbus, Ohio photo booth event clients.
Read online reviews
Ask friends and family members for recommendations, but also read the company’s reviews on their social media pages and sites like Google and Yelp. Any company who isn’t forthcoming about their reviews is probably one you don’t want to work with.
