What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I love that photobooths have become one of the most entertaining parts of every event. People look forward to using them. In an increasingly digital age where everything is saved on the web, photobooths have become the sole place that people receive physical photos.

    Hello Jose I would like to know if you had ant concerns or feedback regarding this rating. when was your event and what could we have done to serve you better. as of now I could not trace your name to any of our previous clients. I am concerned this may have been out in error. we would appreciate your feedback at support@mrphotobot.com

    The actual service was reasonable. The reason for the poor rating was because the attendant interrupted a conversation between the bride and her grandmother halfway through the wedding to remind her we still had not settled the balance. It's fine to ask for payment, but to rudely interrupt a conversation is not professional and especially if it in loves the bride.

    I apologise for this can you tell me what city and date this event was. it is not our policy to do this. I would like to speak to the attendant who was at the event. thank you.

    The booth was a great hit with our guests and the attendant built the photo book as the photos were being taken. Such a great memory of the day and a lot of fun for everyone

    Overall, I enjoyed my experience with Mr. Photobot. The attendant showed up 45 minutes early to set up for my wedding reception, and it was a huge hit at my wedding for all ages, kids and adults alike. Definitely kept the younger ones entertained for much of the reception. However, the one thing that wasn't as expected was the template pictures were printed out on the night of my reception. The words were correct but not the design I had confirmed with support@mrphotobot.com. I've attached pictures of the difference. I also was told there would be wedding-related props available, which were not. The props were generic. Despite this, Mr. Photobot was half the price of most 3-hour photo-booths I looked into and did the job for my event.

    His price was great, he was late. But it worked out, because he agreed to stay later. And he even through in a scrap book for free. Can't wait to get the book. I would use his service again.

    Love working with him already and the event date hasn't even happened yet. I highly recommend. He is willing to work with you on ever aspect and this is something that he loves and is passionate about. If I could give him 6 stars I would.

    I recently booked a photobooth for my daughters graduation party and my experience was phenomenal. The Photobot people reassured me with follow up calls and emails discussing everything that was going to happen at the event so i knew exactly what I was getting. The day of the attendant showed up an hour early set everything up and then layed on the charm so my guests and I had an amazing time. Would highly recommend this to all my friends I want photobooths at all my events, thank you Mr.photobot

    I love this photo booth company, totally worth it! The owner has a bubbly personality, knows exactly what's best for your event(s). There's a lot of different props that you can choose from and the quality of the pictures are perfect! I would definitely recommend Mr. Photobot! Love it!

Q&A

What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Dependings on the package and add-ons. I have 3 popular packages for 3 hour events ranging from 299-499$ with 49$ for every extra hour. I often run promotions on these packages.
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
With all customers I try to build up a personal relationship so they know we care about them and their event. I reach out to them to confirm every detail of their event from the photostrip to design to the venue location/access. Afterwards I always follow up to see if there were any concerns by the guests. I highly appreciate criticism as it helps us improve the quality of our work.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have a Masters Degree in Electrical Engineering with a specialization in Medical Imaging.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I have always loved the events space and Photobooths have always fascinated me. In such a world where people have hundreds of photos in their phone that they rarely look at more than a handful of times, it is the physical photo strips that they charish and put up on their mirrors.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Everyone from schools, corporate events, restaurants, house parties, you name it we did it.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
Building a nanophotobooth for delivery, love it and will release soon.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Interact with the event people, see their response time and how they treat you. Do they treat you as a person or as money. This makes a huge difference in how the service will be.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Dont release too much information!
