Grand Rapids Wedding Photobooths
The popularity of a photo booth for a wedding has taken off in recent years. There is a lot to choose from if you are considering one for your wedding. A word to the wise though, you will have to be wily in your search because although there are a lot of vendors involved in the business, that does not mean that all of these vendors provide a high quality product. You also have to consider price of course and while you want to purchase this service for the most reasonable amount possible, that does not mean that you will receive quality at that amount. So that means that you have some searching to do and several considerations to take into account before you make a decision on who to hire. One of the best places to start your search is online wedding planning websites. You can also do a Google search for “Photo Booth for wedding in Grand Rapids area.” That is a start, then follow out brief guidelines below and you will be well on your way to the best decision that you can make.
Once you have a list, start checking out the individual websites of the companies. Do they look professional, do you like the way they present themselves, are there any red flags? When you have narrowed the field down to 3 to 5 companies in the Grand Rapids area, call each one and find out if they have your wedding date available on their calendar. If they do, then setup a time to interview them about possibly working your wedding. And don't forget that all throughout your interview, you want to be ever mindful of whether the candidate is speaking or acting in a way that is extremely professional and of a high customer service.
You will want to be armed with specific questions when you interview each candidate. Start by talking about their experience. If they say that they are a startup and just began operating two months ago, then move on to your next candidate. You need to see a proven track record or high quality and professional service. Related to this, ask them to provide you with at least three references that you can check out. And don't neglect to check out each one and find out about previous customer's satisfaction level. Pay attention to where they are located, we suggest the closer to your wedding the better. There are a number of reasons for this but the main one is just for convenience. Less things can go wrong if they are within a reasonable number of miles.
Are they licensed and insured? Can they provide you with a contract? Anyone that says that they do not work off of a contract, you should run away immediately. Have they ever setup and operated at your venue before? What happens if something goes wrong during your reception? What is the backup plan? Here is a very important question: find out what kind of equipment they use. Make sure that they use high quality professional grade cameras and lab quality dye sublimation photo printers in their booths. You do not want a web cam or an ink jet printer. Have them show you the packages that they offer. If you see one that is perfect for what you want, is the price satisfactory? Are there are hidden fees? Remember, the cheapest is not necessarily the best way to go or something that will satisfy you in the end. But at least now you can make an informed decision about something that will add a lot to your special day.
