What is idle time?
When do you setup and break down the kiosk?
Photo booth kiosk fees are charged by the hour and additional time when the photo kiosk is required to be set up but not in service is billable at $40/hr. Example 1 (1.5 hours of idle time): The kiosk must be set up by 4:30 prior to the wedding ceremony but the kiosk will not start until 6:00. Example 2 (3 hours of service plus 1 hour idle time): Your event is from 6-10 PM but the kiosk will be closed for an hour during dinner and/or introductions and awards. 
​​We arrive 45/60 minutes before the specified rental start time to begin setup. We break the kiosk down, at the end of the the specified rental time.
Early Setup – Late Breakdown: For every additional hour early you would like the kiok setup, but not operational it is just $40. For every additional hour you would like the kiosk left up, after your rental time, but not operational, is $40.

Guest book
How far in advance should I book the kiosk?
Personalize your kiosk rental experience even further with our guest book. A copy of every photo strip will be put into this beautiful book, where friends and family can leave a little note, right next to their photo! 
We are booking up fast, tend to book up 2 – 3 months in advance for dates. We are a new company, so we will most likely be able to accommodate you, but be sure to call early, as for some dates throughout the spring and summer we will be completely booked out for Weddings.
What is required in order to reserve the kiosk?
A non-refundable booking fee in the amount of $100.00 of the total balance is due upon signing of contract. The event is only reserved once the booking fee is received.  The remaining balance is due no later than one weeks in advance of the client’s Event Date.  If the balance has not been collected by this due date, then The Shutter Effect reserves the right to cancel the event.

Refund Policy?
If the event is cancelled for any reason, the non-refundable deposit is forfeited. Requests for the date changes must be done in writing at least 30 days prior to the original event date. If The Shutter Effect has the new date available, we will more than happily provide our services on the new date, at no additional charge. If The Shutter Effect does not have the new date available, the non-refundable deposit will be lost and the event will be cancelled.

What backdrop options are there?
Available backdrops:large sequin gold or silver; or studio white, our living green hedge wall and 
Green screen with countless options

How much room do you need for the kiosk?
Our setup takes about 8x8 or4X10space (depending on backdrop chosen). We will also need outlet close by for the kiosk, and lighting.

What does a green-screen do?
Stand on an elephant, balance on the tip of the Eiffel Tower or swim with sharks. With our green screen, your imagination is your only limitation.

What are props?
Take the fun up a notch with mad props. Perfect for breaking the ice and bringing out your guests’ silly sides. Our prop kit includes hats, goofy glasses, boas, tiaras and much, much, more.

What about customization?
The last frame of the photo strip, called Footer Prints, can be used for your personlized graphic or logo. Let us know if you have a monogram, logo or picture you’d like us to use, or we can work with you to customize a graphic to suit your event. We can also customize the background of the photo strips and 4×6 to suit your needs. Pick a color, pick a theme, use a photo (hearts, flowers, puppies, whatever you want!).

How many people will the kiosk fit?
Unlike the traditional photo booth (that comfortably hold just 2 people, or maybe squeeze in 3 or 4 people), our photo open-air kiosk will comfortably fit from 1 to 12 people, and maybe even more!

What is a Private Web Gallery?
We provide all our clients with a private web gallery free of charge and we host it for over a year! You and your guests can view and order reprints of all the photos including the individual files. There are many other photo type products to choose from too.
