Frequently Asked Questions
Will the bus work at my venue?
If there’s a will, there’s usually a way! For outdoor venues we can always find a nice spot to nestle into, and for indoor venues you’d be surprised at the creative ways she can squeeze into spaces and places. If the venue has double doors, we can likely remove the center bar divider and shimmy the bus inside. Once in, if you can provide a ~10’x20′ area, we’re ready to rock! We do need permission from your venue as well – which isn’t usually a problem.
Do you print the photo strips at the event? And can I get extra copies?
Yes! Always! Not only does each patron get their own snazzy little photo strip immediately after they step out of the bus, but we also upload photos to a public (or private) online gallery to easily access, share, and download the hi-res images as you wish. You can always request extra photo strip prints at the event or access the hi-res digital versions any time.
How many people can fit inside the bus?
If we told you 11, would you believe us? The most that can actually squeeze into a decent photo is approximately 6 people, which is roughly equivalent to 12 small children, or 32 tiny babies. On that note, if you would like to squeeze 32 babies into the bus at once, we’ll actually do your event free of charge.
How far do you travel?
We. Love. Roadtripping. We’ll hop in the bus and kazoom out to your event as long as it’s within our travel radius. Travel beyond 40 miles is subject to a cost-of-kazooming increase –please inquire.
Can you personalize the photo strips?
It seems most answers in this FAQ start with YES, and this one’s no different. We always include a cute little version of our logo with a link to access your digital photos on the bottom of the strip, and we’re happy to customize the photo strips to include your logo or information as desired!
Can I rent the bus for a photo or video shoot?
Yes you can! If you rent the bus as a photo booth for your event we’re happy to take a few minutes to accommodate you shooting with the bus to get some stellar photos and video (as long as you share them with us, please!!). If you’d like to simply rent the bus outright for a shoot (not as a photo booth) please inquire for rates.
Can we use our own props?
Yes! As long as they’re not broadswords, skis, or a pole vaulting stick (basically anything that is oddly long, sharp and could poke holes into the headliner inside the bus. :). You can always use our props, or get creative and bring whatever you’d like to theme your experience!
Do you drive The Photo Bus?
Yes! We always drive The Photo Bus to events, but we usually push it into the venue. For events further out sometimes it safer for us to tow it there.
Do you need power?
The Photo Bus needs 1 standard household outlet, 120v, 15 amps, preferably to ourselves, especially in the summer when we are running the air conditioning in the bus. If no power is available at your event location, we do have a rental generator option to keep us up and running all night! If you are providing your own generator we require you send us the model and specs for approval first.
What If there's printing problems?
We don't anticipate printing problems, however if our printer goes out or doesn't want to print we will mail copies of all the photos to the customer who booked the event and will give a $50 refund. Our host will receive an online gallery with all the copies of the photos taken inside the bus as part of the package.
What about inclement weather?
If we are set up inside your venue, weather won't be an issue. If road conditions don't allow us to make it to the event (mechanical or extreme weather issues) you will be given a full refund. We are able to operate in light rain and snow. If weather turns miserable during the event and we are unable to operate, and more than half of the amount of time hasn't been used, you will be given a partial refund. If more than half of your time has been used, there will not be a partial refund.
