Photo Booth FAQs


how much does the photo booth cost?

For a couple that has already booked a wedding photography collection, The Photo Booth rental includes use at your reception, a backdrop, hand-curated props, all interactive and social features including photos, videos, GIFS, and boomerangs, and an on-line gallery of all media taken by you and your guests after the wedding. The cost of this add-on service is $500. For couples that have not booked a wedding photography collection, the cost of this service is $800. For weddings and events outside of North Arlington, Alexandria and Washington DC, travel fees apply.


How do we book?

Let us know that you’d like to include The Photo Booth in your collection and we’ll send over a contract. Give it your signature and send in your 50% retainer, and you’ll be all set!


What do you need from our venue?

We’ll need access to a standard 120 volt outlet and Wifi. (If your venue doesn’t have Wifi, we can send you the gallery after the wedding where you can pass along to your guests for free downloads.) We’ll need a space that’s 10x10x10.


who does the setup and break down?

If you’ve hired one of our team members to photograph your wedding, they’ll do it! If not, we’ll send an attendant/team member to set up, manage, and break down after your event.


do we get to choose the backdrop?

Yes! We have a number of different seamless colored and themed backdrops for you to choose from that best fit the style + vibe of your wedding day, including solids like black and white as well as some funky ones like gold and silver sequins.


What about props?

Like everything The Collective does, we believe in quality over quantity and bring a selection of hand-curated props to every wedding. We’ll also bring a customizable letter board that can read whatever you’d like! We’ll also bring a prop table in order to keep everything looking clean and organized. If you have a prop request, we’re happy to add on custom props to your package.


Can it be setup outside?

Yes, but it needs to be covered and protected from the weather. For the best picture quality, we recommend a white tent.


How do we get photos + Videos?

The gallery is live so while you and your guests are creating your photos + videos (and GIFS!) you’ll be able to send them directly to yourselves and share them on social media. You’ll also receive an online gallery of all the media created after your wedding day/event.
