Photo Booth Attendant
When we get inquiries about our photo booths, many times people ask us about the staffing we have for it. While yes, theoretically, the photo booth can be left alone at an event and be run on its own, we always send our booths out with an attendant. We do this for a number of reasons.
One of the biggest reasons we send all our booths out with an attendant is from a customer service standpoint. In the wedding industry, which is what we primarily serve in, customer service and reputation can make or break your company. When you send out a booth, make sure you have an attendant who is properly trained in the basics of the booth and also has the personality to interact with the guests. This adds a personal element to your business. We get so many calls Monday or Tuesday mornings after our events raving about not only the booth but how helpful and fun all our attendants were at their weekend events.
Something that we’ve noticed that many of our competitors do is set up their booth and leave, but what happens if it runs out of paper? There is no one there to change it when it runs out and changing the roll of paper after every event gets very expensive very quickly. What happens if a guest needs assistance using the booth? What happens if a guest trips and accidentally unplugs the booth? There are so many freak accidents that could happen at any event that having a booth attendant doesn’t necessarily prevent, but they act and solve these issues in that moment.
Lastly, at times, the photo booth can get a bit busy, rowdy, and at times out of control. Having an attendant there helps keep the props in order, guests moving through the line and the rowdy guests a bit under control. When the party is at the photo booth, the attendant is there to help manage and control it a bit, not end the party. However, if no one is there to help, things can get out of control very quickly.
