Booking & Reservations

- 200 - 250 guests requires 3 hours
- 300 - 350 guests requires 4 hours
- 400 - 450 guests requires 5 hours
If you haven't paid your booth rental in full at the time of your contract you will need to do so one week before your event. We accept cash, check or charge at that time. If you fail to pay in full one week before hand you will need to plan on paying in cash after that deadline and before we unpack at your event.
The day of your event we will arrive 1 hour before our scheduled start time to setup. After the last session, it will take us roughly an hour to break down. This setup and breakdown time is NOT included in the time that you contracted. We do ask that you ensure the venue will allow for this time of setup and break down.
We currently have two full booths and one media station booth.
Our primary booth is a sleek white and elegant setup with a 20" touch screen monitor providing live view preview, professional DSLR camera and flash strobe, with the capability to email and text and post to facebook right from the booth. It also can easily glide up and down on a mechanical riser (so easy your guests can operate it) to raise and lower the camera height for all sizes of guests. That, along with the flashy LED color changing lights make it a very sexy setup.
Our secondary booth is not quite as slick looking but is just as functional with a black standing 22" touch screen monitor, professional DSLR camera and flash strobe, with the capability to email and text and post to facebook right from the booth. It is backed by an external laptop, which has the power to offer more advanced video and editing features than our primary booth. It also can be adjusted by our attendants to match the height requirements of your guests. Sadly, no flashy LED lights. This booth works best if there is going to be uneven ground surfaces.
Our media station booth is a single sleek white tower with a stable Apple iPad behind it's power. This booth is easily branded for your company or event, both for it's templates and screens and on the tower itself. This booth can be made to generate print outs to hand out as well, but it is mainly designed and intended to produce sharable images and GIFs and videos.
At the Event
Our packages all offer unlimited sessions. We allow your guests to use the booth as many times as they want making it unlimited session usage.
The Silver, Gold and Platinum packages all include per-person prints. Per-person prints means we will print a copy for everyone in the session that asks for it. If someone in the session requests an extra copy for mom, grandma or Aunt Martha, we will print it for them.
If you have added the album option to your package we will automatically print a copy for your album. It will be the first one and go directly to the album attendant to affix it to your album page.
We would be happy to reprint an image for you or your guests with our Photo Booth Packages as they include Per-Person prints.
After the event they can always download and print their own copy from our online gallery posted within 72 hours of your event. You may have to check with your host as some galleries are password protected or hidden for privacy reasons.
Album & Guestbook
Props & Setup
YES! Included in any of our regular full booth packages. We provide a multitude of "alter-ego-finding" hats, glasses, masks and signs. If you let us know what type of event you are having we are happy to bring our themed props. You can also add as an option our custom printed signs for use at your event.
Yes, you may. Please let us know and we will leave our props at home. If you are bringing your own backdrop please let us know so we can discuss how it will be hung or affixed and the size to ensure it will work appropriately. Backdrop sizing is very important as it effects the number of guests that will fit in the frame of the photo.
Yes. You have the option of adding text to the prints (such as your event name) a logo or your picture. You may also add a logo with a date or other specific information. We can custom design any template from an image or suggestion of simply colors and ideas. This is what we specialize in, customization's. We even make the touch screens match any customized templates. If your package has an album you can add optional custom printed pages that coordinate with your custom print templates.
Please note that customization is included with all our Photo Booth Packages.
We will review any custom templates with you before the event and gain your approval.
You are welcome to view some of the templates we have available. Sample Templates
Our open air booth and backdrop makes a 7' x 7' x 7' foot print. We also have a 6' prop table and optional but smaller album/guestbook table so in total we generally need a 10’ x 10’ space. Although, in certain venues and very tight spots we have found the backdrop unnecessary and have used a 5' x 7' area before.
Yes, if weather permits and there is an available dry area. If you can not provide a tent or cover we can provide our 8'x8' tent for an additional charge and extra 20 minutes of setup time. When there are high winds or heavy rains it is cost prohibitive for us to perform outdoors (and miserable for your guests). Should such a weather prohibitive event occur and we are not able to perform our part of your contract we are happy to refund your booth contract minus the retainer.
We also require power and if the area/venue can not supply power to the outdoor area we can provide a "quite-ish" running generator for our needs at an additional charge.
We will need to plan sufficiently ahead of time for tent and generator so please make sure you discuss these issues at the time of your contract consultation.
If the ground to be used isn't level we are forced to use our tripod legged backup photo booth unit. While it isn't as attractive as our main white unit it is as powerful and the experience is the same.
Yes, we have several color choices: Black, White, Mottled Tan/Brown, Mottled Grey, Mottled Blue, Tie-Die Green, Black with Gold Scrolls, Rustic Wood, Chevron white/gold sequin, Gold sequin, Rose-Gold sequin, Silver sequin, Deluxe: Mermaid white/gold sequin, mermaid fuchsia/silver sequin, rustic wood with colored ribbons. We also offer green screen effects as an upgrade to allow for a multitude of opportunities.
After the Event
Yes, we require a non-refundable retainer of $75 and signed contract to officially book and hold your event date.
Tanzi Photo Booth accepts cash, check or credit cards. To pay by check you must pay more than one week before your event unless previous arrangements have been made.
If you need to change your date, there is never a charge for a date change as long as the new date is available in our calendar. If you need to cancel your contract entirely, any money paid as a retainer will not be returned. We will however apply your retainer to any future date up to one year out.
We do ask that any cancellation be in written form, email, text or physical are all acceptable forms.
Rescheduling, changes or amendments can now be done from your account on our online booking system.
It's our passion to make sure your guests have a good time and a quality print out to share forever. Leslie Baski, Tanzi Photography president
