What you should know...
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
When a customer first approaches FOTOGRAPHIA, we like to get as much information about their event as we can. Number of people, location, date, theme etc., are all important factors in making sure we are properly prepared to support your event.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service?
We offer a very affordable base price of $150/hr to ensure that our services fit your needs and your budget. Choose one of our photo booth rental packages that fits your budget or contact us for a custom setup.
How does the photo booth work?
Guests use the provided props and take photos assisted by our staff. Photos print in less than 30 seconds, and additional options for email and social sharing are available. Our photo booths include unlimited photos, props, custom graphics and onsite staff. We deliver all digital copies within a week and can also host them in an online gallery for you to share with your friends and family.
Is this a traditional enclosed photo booth?
Yes and no. We offer the same options as a traditional booth but instead of being crammed in a small space you can take pictures with larger groups in front of a backdrop. This allows you to use more props and get more creative with your photos.
What does the backdrop look like?
Our standard backdrop is black, but we offer other colors as well. You can also provide your own custom backdrop.
What are your space and power requirements?
On average we need approximately 10 square feet of space. We do also require a dedicated power outlet; if you have an outdoor event please ensure the space is shielded from the elements as that is not provided by FOTOGRAPHIA.
How long do you require to set up the photo booth?
We typically need 60-90 minutes of setup time. This is included in your photo booth rental, you are only billed for functional photo booth time.
What it your service area?
We are located on Mercer Island and have a 30 mile work radius free of charge. Any work outside of this 30 mile radius will incur an additional travel fee of $35/hour of additional drive time. If your photo booth location is outside of the state of Washington additional costs for travel will be incurred and discussed during the booking process.
What other services do you offer?
We offer design services and can create save the date, invitations, RSVPs, thank you cards and more. We also offer scrapbooks and guestbooks.
What types of customers have you worked with?
We have worked with small business owners, as well as large companies. Projects are fairly similar, but mostly vary in budget.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
If you are looking for a photo booth or need event materials created first think about how you want your guests to remember the event. What is the theme and how are you going to communicate that visually?
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
How many guests do you have?
Do you have a designated space for a photo booth?
Is it indoor or outdoor?
Is a backdrop / camera setup better than an enclosed photo booth for your event?
Experience and background:
WHAT EDUCATION AND/OR TRAINING DO YOU HAVE THAT RELATES TO YOUR WORK?
Alexandra has a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Washington and extensive experience working as a designer for both small and large businesses in the Puget Sound area.
HOW DID YOU GET STARTED DOING THIS TYPE OF WORK?
This all started with setting up a photo booth for a company party. Everything went very well and the booth was a huge success. After offering the photo booth at all her friend's weddings, Alexandra decided it was time to offer it as a service to customers in the Seattle area. This proved to be a great decision as many happy customers can attest.
