OUTDOOR SET UP
An open or closed booth can be set up outdoors however there are things that need to be considered during the planning process. The basic needs would be no real threat of rain, low winds and a flat surface is a must. An adequately leveled space is needed to set up any booth type. An open or closed booth can not be set up in a grassy area, a smooth, level surface is required. Suitable lighting conditions are a plus.
Because weather is unpredictable a backup plan is needed. If there is a 45% or greater chance of rain during the scheduled service, set-up and take-down periods, then we will require an alternate location or an added shelter to adequately protect equipment from the rain. Furthermore it is unsafe and irresponsible to operate or use any of our booths in an unprotected location when there is active lighting in the area. We will suspend use of the photo booth until the threat of lighting has passed.
Wind can also cause an issue as the backdrops and enclosures catch a lot of wind and become annoying or even dangerous. 4-5 mph winds cause an annoyance (the fabrics can be pushed around by the wind) while 8-9 mph winds can become dangerous (the stands can be pulled over by the winds). We have sandbags and anchors help with this but, again, there needs to be a backup plan in place if conditions prove unsuitable.
We pride ourselves in taking great quality photos and when it comes to photography, lighting is everything. We have less control of the lighting with outdoor events. We can adjust the camera settings to accommodate many lighting scenarios however a fully shaded space would provide the best results when it comes to image quality.
Hourly forecast predictions from The weather Channel will be used to determine the need for an antiquely sheltered space.
No refunds will be issued because of inclimate weather. Make sure you have a suitable backup plan if you are planning on having the photo booth outdoors.
