About US

Why should we book our photo booth with your company?
There are tons of photo booth companies out there, so why should you book us? We’re a local, veteran owned, small business that always puts the best quality over any quantity. We started this business many years ago when we wanted to have a photo booth at a wedding and found out that we simple could not afford it….they were so expensive and even the lower priced ones wanted to upcharge for EVERYTHING! We knew we could do it better, for the right reasons, and offer a better priced service with very high quality. Years later, we are still working hard, going the extra mile for our clients. We take pride in our amazing client reviews and will never try to upsell you. When it comes to booking a photo booth for your event, we will always be upfront, honest and give you the best assessment of what you’ll need. We operate this business full-time, and a business that just operates on the side to make a few bucks. In addition to our reputation and drive for complete client satisfaction, we attend yearly continuing education specific to photo booth companies, stay up to date on the most efficent and impressive software and equipment on the market. Your success is our success.
My DJ has a photo booth I can add to my package. Why should we pick you?

Ah…probably our most frequently asked question. In return I’ll ask you this: If you fell off a ladder and broke your arm, would you go to your local vet and ask them to fix your arm? Of course not! Your vet may have a lot of medical training and be able to give medication, but their specific training, their entire job revolves around animals. You would go to a human doctor because they specialize in exactly what you are looking for. Because they specialize in it, their specific education is up to speed , they know what they’re doing, know how to make an impact and how to be the most effective at it.

Oftentimes a DJ will add a “photo booth” to their add-ons….or perhaps a photographer the same. Here are things we often notice when this happens:
-Their photo booth is not actually a photo booth at all.
-If it is a photo booth it is often old and outdated.
-The provider of these booths cannot effectively run them because they’re constantly working on queuing up the next song, or getting ready for the next set of family pictures.

So is so disappointing to witness because it’s so clear that this business added a photo booth to their offerings, just to make some extra money and isn’t fully involved in it’s operation as they could be. When you decide to rent a photo booth from Munson Photo Booth, you’re assured that we have the most experienced staff, our booths are running at peak performance, and we will do everything we can to make sure the photo booth is one of the most memorable moments for you and your guests. Our reputation speaks for itself.

What type of photo sessions do you offer?
We are proud to say that our photo booths are very flexible. Depending on the type of booth and demands of your event, we can traditionally offer still photos and photo strips, as well as animated gifs and boomerangs, which are great to upload and share via social media.
Additionally, when it comes to printed photos, we offer a choice of traditional 2″ x 6″ photo strips, 4″ x 6″ postcard style prints, or if you really want to impress your guests, ask about upgrading your package to include 5″ x 5″ SQUARE prints! Can you say chic!?
Other photo booth companies limit our printed photos. Do you limit how many photos you print?
We’re a big believer in going the extra mile for our clients and always try to do everything we can to impress. Along these lines, we include UNLIMITED photo booth sessions and if your photo booth package has prints included only limit the amount of prints to the amount of people in the photo. Have 25 people in the photo? We’ll print 25 prints…the only question we ask is how many you want! Don’t allow a photo booth company to charge you for this…that’s crazier than Brittany Spears in 2007!!!

about the boothS

How does the Signature Enclosed photo booth work?

The Signature Enclosed photo booth is fully automated and provides audio instructions along with on-screen guidance. The only thing you need to do is grab some props, head inside, touch the screen to start and pose for your pictures! When you’re finished, come on out and your attendant will have your photo strips waiting for you.

How does the Aura Open Air photo booth work?

The Aura is our most popular and most requested photo booth. With it’s sleek design and ability to fit in most any spaces, many people are in love at first sight. To use the Aura, it’s as simple as grabbing a couple props, walking up to it and selecting your favorite experience on the touch screen. Will you do a photo strip, an animated gif, or the ever popular boomerang gif!? Once you select, the live view comes on the screen and the countdown begins. After the session, you will have the option to e-mail or text message a link to the photo session to yourself! That’s all there is to it!

Do you offer a Green Screen option?

Our equipment is capable of offering Green Screen and we are in the process of implementing this feature for those who are interested. If you are interested in having a green screen style event, please let us know and we can discuss the availability and options for your particular event.

What do I need to know about booking the photo booth?

Where can the photo booth be setup?

We can typically set up anywhere with a nice FLAT hard stable surface. This can be concrete, a dance floor or even on gravel on a case by case basis. Most events have us set up indoors, but during the nicer weather we frequently  set up outdoors as well. We need a minimum space of 10’W x 10’D x 8’H in order to setup the photo booth. All outdoor setups and/or on gravel should be preapproved during your booking.

How much time do you need to setup/breakdown the photo booth?

We typically arrive 1 hour prior to the event start time for setup, and depart approx 30 minutes after the end time of your rental. 

Where do you travel? Is there a travel fee?

The short answer…everywhere. We love to travel and if your event is there, we will travel. We primarily service the Portland Metro Area and frequently travel from Seaside to Mt. Hood, Vancouver to Eugene. We do include 40 miles (round trip from our office in Beaverton, Oregon) that are included free of charge. Any miles over 40 miles are charged at $1 per mile round trip. We keep this cost remarkably low as we never want a travel fee to be a barrier to you having an amazing photo booth at your event. Additionally, we have a select few venues outside of our traditional mileage range and may have a flat rate travel fee for your venue.

What are the electrical/site requirements?

In order to set up the photo booth we just require a dedicated 15 amp, 120 volt grounded power outlet that is within 25ft from the booth (along a wall). This is not typically a problem, but should be considered when planning the placement of the booth at your event. We have the ability to offer further distances, but it’s imperative that the need is discussed ahead of time so we can bring all the proper equipment. Additionally, if your event is away from an available power source, we do have the ability to bring our own power for an additional charge. Please feel free to ask us about this option when booking.
