Frequently Asked Questions
I want to book! What do I do now?
Head over to our templates page and select which photo strip you like the best. You will then be asked follow the prompts to book. You will be asked to submit your $200 deposit, or full payment if you choose!
How many photos can my guests take?
The more the merrier! The more photos your guests take, the more memories you have of your special event! We encourage the guests to take as many photos as they'd like and do not limit photos or prints!
What are the power requirements to run a booth?
We just need access to a standard, 3 prong, 120v electrical outlet within 50 feet. The closer, the better to eliminate extension cords running along the ground. We supply a 50' extension cord.
Can I have a booth if my event is outdoors or in the middle of a field?
Yes! However, we recommend finding an indoor placement for the booth. If you supply a generator for electricity we can have the booth outdoors! We do require a separate generator (not to be shared with any other electrical need) to prevent fire hazard. We need secure, reliable protection from the sun so we can bring our own tent for a fee of $100. Lastly, there needs to be flat, level ground or the printer will not perform properly. So, yes It can be done, but it's simpler and safer to be located indoors. If it rains we will not continue the event outdoors so having an indoor backup plan is highly advised. There are no refunds given due to rain so please plan accordingly.
Will my guests be able to upload to social media and email if there is no WiFi available at my venue?
Yes! We can bring a mobile hotspot for an extra $50 when needed, so the sharing of photos can be instantaneous! However, most venues provide free Wifi access so make sure to check ahead of time!
Is the photo booth user friendly?
It most definitely is! Of course we have an attendant right there to help out as needed, but our 19" touch screen monitor makes it very easy for guests to begin their session, choose filter, text photo to themselves, share with social media and even print their own strip.
How large of an area does the booth need for set-up?
We need at least a 10' x 10' area and a little more if you plan to have the scrapbook option. Keep in mind that the photo booth is a very popular part of your party, and you don't want your guests squished into a small corner.
My Venue needs to know if Salty Snapshots is insured?
Yes, we have Liability Insurance for personal injury and property damage.
Your packages include a scrapbook option, how does the scrapbook option work?
If you choose the scrapbook option, we print copies for the guests at the event as well as print a copy for the scrapbook. The guests can than paste the photo into the book and write a personalized message next to their photo strip. If you choose the 2x6 photo strips it comes with 10 specially designed pages to hold 80 photos with messages. If you choose the 4x6 postcards it comes with 12 blank pages that will hold 72 photos. This is an awesome way to remember your event!
What kind of equipment do you use?
We use a Canon EOS Rebel T5i camera, a DNP professional Dye-Sub printer that prints photos in 9 seconds. A 19" touch screen display monitor and a professional grade flash system. We do "open-air" style with a backdrop so you can fit as many friends and family as you can and the equipment tower has multi colored LED lights inside to kick up the fun level even more!
Do we have to pay extra for props?
Absolutely not! This is most definitely included in the price!
How do we make a payment for the rental?
We require a $200 deposit upon booking the event. This reserves your date. The remainder of the payment is due no later than 10 days prior to the event. If the full balance is not paid 10 days prior to the event your reservation is no longer valid and you forfeit the deposit.

Cancellations made less than 30 days prior to your event are non-refundable and non-transferable.
What if I don't want my photos shared on social media?
We only share photos from your event on social media only if you’d like! If you would prefer that we not share your photos on our Facebook, Instagram or website, we absolutely respect your privacy. However, we are not responsible for your guests posts on social media.
How do we see the photos that were taken at the event?
We use a digital sharing platform called Pixiset, and each event gets their own private gallery to pick from. Within a week we will send you a personal link that you may distribute to your guests. We also include a scrapbook option, where you can create a coffee table book for you to have and commemorate your event! If you would like an extra copy of your photos, we can add them to an USB drive and ship or deliver them to you.
