When you are planning an event, it can be tricky to decide on how many hours to hire a photobooth. The first thing Melbourne DJ Hire will ask is how many guests will be at your event, the more guests that are attending the more hours you should hire.
For example, if you are organising a house party with only 50-70 people, we would suggest a 3 hour hire. Guests can have a couple of photos at the start of the night before they get into drinks, then after a few drinks they can take some more funny shots. Melbourne DJ Hire also encourage party planners to book the photobooth to start running at the start of the night so the hosts and birthday person can take some important family shots with their loved ones. Then the photobooth can pack up and leave towards the end of the night and everyone can concentrate on getting on the dance floor.
Another factor on how many hours to hire a photobooth could also be budget, Melbourne Dj Hire charge per hour for a photobooth job and some clients may only have the budget for 2-3 hours. Our attendants will usually, prompt and encourage guests to use the photobooth and we will also ask the MC to make announcements when our booking time comes to an end.You also need to have a think about how many speeches and formalities are going on at the event. If there will be a lot of awards and presentations at the start of the night, then you could possibly book the photobooth towards the end of the night so that guests can use it after the seated formalities. Melbourne DJ Hire worked at an Awards Gala dinner a few weeks ago where the speeches ran for the first hour and half so our photobooth was only booked for the last 2 hours of the night.
