Frequently Asked Questions
What areas do you service?
We service all of South East QLD and Northern NSW. Some of our most popular locations are the Sunshine Coast, Brisbane, the Gold Coast and Bundaberg.
Do you hold blue cards?
All Photobooths Australia employees hold blue cards and are licensed to cater to children’s parties.
Do we need an attendant?
Of course, this is vital for a successful photobooth experience! An attendant is there to make sure all of your guests know how to use the photobooth, to ensure your guest book is filled out correctly, to fix any technical issues if they happen to arise, and to do all of the heavy lifting for you when it comes to delivering and setting up the photobooth. Unattended photobooths frequently suffer from technical problems like running out of photo paper, running out of ink, printer jams, or unexpected hardware problems, but with a photobooth attendant any issues can be fixed on the fly and the fun can continue without a hitch. An attendant ensures that you are receiving the highest quality of product, during the event and at the end of the event when you will receive your beautifully filled out guest book and DVD.
Do you have a good selection of props?
We supply a huge selection of fun props to ensure the entertainment continues for the entire booking. The more props, the more fun!

Do you capture video in your photobooth?
Yes, one of the features that set our photobooths apart from the rest is that they are also videobooths that capture high definition video. What better way to remember your special day in the years to come, than to have a personal heartfelt, or amusing video message, captured on DVD, from family and friends. This extra comes to you free of charge and the resulting DVD will be presented to you with our compliments.
What is the size of the photobooth?
Our deluxe photobooth measurements are 1.35m(W) x1.75m(L) x1.9m(H) and can accommodate 8 guests or more (we have had up to 11), however, we can offer a smaller sized photobooth that can accommodate up to 6 guests, depending on your venue limitations. The smaller booth is 1m(W) x 1.65m(L) x 1.9m(H). We also offer an “open photobooth set up” which can capture up to 15 guests in shot. The open photobooth has no enclosed curtained section. The pricing is the same for all sizes of photobooth.
Do we get a copy of the pictures taken in the photobooth?
Yes you will receive a DVD after your function containing all of the hi-res photos and video messages taken in the photobooth.
What colour options do we have for our prints?
Our professional photobooths have three colour options: colour, black and white, and sepia.
How does the guest book work?
Our photobooths print two copies of each photostrip, one for your guests and one for insertion into your complimentary, professional black page dry-mount guest book. Your guests then write a message beside their photostrip with the beautiful array of complimentary gel pens we supply.
What printers do you use?
We use the very best and latest professional thermal, dye sublimation printers that produce a print clarity that is double that of other photobooth printers on the market. The prints are fast, touch dry and water proof immediately.
What type of camera do you use?
We use only professional quality digital SLR cameras (the same as professional wedding photographers). Please beware, most photobooth companies use only webcams for image capture.
Do you charge to set up the photobooth?

Do guests pay as they enter?
No. Your guests are welcome to take as many photostrips and video messages as they like, free of charge.
