Buffalo Photo Booth Rental FAQ's

Find answers to all of the most commonly asked questions when renting a photo booth.

What Does Your Photo Booth Look Like?

Our photo booth is an “open air” photo booth. When looking for a photo booth for your wedding or event, it is imperative that you use an open air style photo booth compared to an “enclosed” photo booth, for multiple reasons:


  1. Open air photo booths allow for more people to fit in the photos.
  2. Open air photo booths allow for special lighting that dramatically increases the quality of the photos, as seen in our photo booth gallery.
  3. Open air photo booths allow for beautiful backdrops to be used. Check out our photo booth backdrops!
  4. Last but not least, open air photo booths act more as an accent to your decor, compared to a distraction, like the big bulky enclosed photo booths.
Do You Get Unlimited Prints?

This is a great question! Not all photo booth rental packages are created equal. Many companies market unlimited prints, but do not truly mean that. We offer truly unlimited prints. For example, if five people take a session in the photo booth, all 5 guests will receive a photo strip print out. Some companies only print out two prints per session, then require the group to take another session, to get an additional two strips and so on, until everyone has received a copy. We don’t require that. Everyone gets a print out right after the first session!

Is There An Attendant?

Yes, a photo booth attendant is included with every Buffalo photo booth rental. Attendants help guests take photos, print copies, keep the prop table clean and improve the experience. We do have scenarios where we have the attendant stay off-site, but close by, so the guests can enjoy the photo booth without an attendant. This is more typical for sweet 16’s and similar type events.

How Much Space Do You Require To Setup?

Our booth setup has a 10′ X 10′ Footprint, so we recommend about a 12′ X 12′ area. If this much space is not available, we can still configure the booth to be setup in a smaller area. Our team has setup in a space as small as 6′ X 8′ before. 

What Types of Props Do You Have?

We have a variety of different props from, crazy hats and large glasses to feather boas, funny signs and masks. View our gallery page to see all of the different props that appear in the photos. We can make custom props for your event too! Whether it is a logo, name cutouts or a pineapple, we can make it all! Custom props start at $45. Email katie@bowtiephotoboothbuffalo to inquire about our custom props!

What Time Do You Begin Setting Up and What Time Do You Breakdown?

Setup begins one hour before your specified rental start time. Breakdown begins at the specified rental end time. Non-operational early setups and late breakdowns are offered at a small additional cost of $25 per hour.

Can We Customize Our Strip?

Free strip customization is included with every photo booth rental in Buffalo. You may provide us with the desired text you would like to have on every strip or you can provide us with a logo to place on the bottom of every strip.

What is your cancellation policy?

At the time of booking we require a 50% deposit. The deposit is fully refundable outside of 90 days from the date of your event. Inside of 90 days from the date of your event, the deposit becomes non-refundable. In the case of a cancellation inside of 90 days, due to inclement weather, the deposit is non-refundable, but will be held as a credit which can be used for a future date.
