Like owning a clown car or calculating an elevator’s maximum weight capacity, half the fun of a photo booth is cramming as many people inside as possible. Snap silly group shots with today’s Groupon: for $199, you get a three-hour photo-booth rental (a $650 value), a prop-box rental (a $50 value), plus a burned CD (a $50 value) and web gallery of images (a $50 value) from Foto Fun (an $800 total value). Additional travel fees may apply for events occurring 50 miles outside Ferndale.
Foto Fun's image enthusiasts haul photo booths to shindigs, corporate events, wedding receptions, and anywhere else that begs for an intimate environment to document the revelry. Accompanied to the event and set up by the two owners themselves, a private, four-walled photo booth encompasses the good sides of up to 10 friends, family members, or cardboard cutouts of yourself at a time for a series of four snapshots quickly printed in black and white or color for each person. The owners stick around for the duration of the three-hour rental period, serving as photo specialists, doling out costume pieces and accessories, and amiably shepherding guests through the process. In addition to unlimited photostrips, Foto Fun's owners give a single CD of pictures to the host, the most deserving attendee, or whoever got the highest SAT score, and make an online web gallery available. When all is said and done, Foto Fun whisks the photo booth off to another grand adventure, leaving the host hassle-free.
