Frequently Asked Questions


How big is the photo booth?

Our photo booth is approximately three feet by six feet and stands six feet tall. To the guest, the booth looks like a permanent fixture in the venue – though we have designed it to break down in a matter of minutes, haul it up stairs, and fit through regular sized doorways.


How many people may fit in the photo booth?

We’ve seen up to eight faces in our booth’s photos. Though, you still have the comfort and privacy that comes with a design based on the photo booths of the past. So, let go of your inhibitions – it’s just you and the camera.


What is required to run the photo booth?

Our photo booth will fit comfortably against a wall or in the middle of the action. It simply requires a standard, three prong electrical outlet (110 volt, 3 prong) – similar to what your TV would need.


How long does it take to develop the photos?

After pressing the Color or B&W arcade buttons, the guest then pushes the start button, which kicks off the process for the photo snapping process. There is a five second pause between each photo with a live preview screen and countdown to the next picture. Once all photos are taken, two photo strips dispense into the collection tray in eight to twelve seconds!


Do I get digital photo copies?

You’ll receive all full resolution photos on DVD at the end of the event. If we’re unable to find you, we’ll mail or use Dropbox to transfer the high resolution photos to you. Guests will be able to obtain their own digital copies for FREE by visiting our Event Photos page. At your request, we can post pics onto Facebook too! Photos are posted online within a week of your event.


Is it possible to have my event name or a logo printed on the photos?

We’ll brand and layout your photo strips any way you like. Photo-strips are fully customizable to your liking. Just let us know what you want, you will LOVE our designs.


Can the photo booth be used outdoors?

Yep! We just need a 110 volt power source and a flat, hard surface. In most cases, we prefer a sheltered area since having the booth in direct sunlight is bad for the equipment.


Are you insured?

You can breathe easy. Photo-matica is a fully insured corporation registered with the state of California. We train our employees and carry insruance so you can focus on the important stuff.
