Travis A. We rented a Photo booth from Cortes this last weekend for our annual awards dinner and Gala. We decided that we wanted a photo booth about a week before the event, which really is not much time for people to schedule these types of rentals. Cortes was more than happy to help us out, sending over a contract immediately.
We have a tight budget for these events, and Cortes was able to work with us to find a package and price that worked for our needs. This is really a full service operation and we were not lacking in anything. There were a ton of props and costume pieces to take in with you, we got 2 prints for each session, and there was an option to have the photos emailed after each one was taken.
There are many print options for the photos, we chose the classic 4 in a strip. The photos are in full color and there is a touch screen inside to start the whole thing off when you're ready. You can customize what the photos say on the bottom and various other aspects. You have a ton of options.
A full staff accompanied the photo booth. Set up was during our seated dinner, and it was fast and quiet. Breakdown happened at the end of the night and it was equally quick.
I would say all in all this is a professional operation, and you get an excellent service for your money. I know that Cortes will be one of our regular vendors for years to come, and I will be recommending them to everyone for their various events.
If you haven't considered a photo booth for your event, I would say talk to Cortes and see if you can make one work. It really adds immeasurable entertainment to any gathering. There will be a line outside of the booth all night, guaranteed.
