Frequently Asked Questions

We receive a ton of questions from customers. We’ve put together some of the most regular questions that might assist you.

Do you charge a deposit?

We charge a 50% retainer fee (non-refundable if it is within 90 days of your event) to keep your reservation for the night. The final balance amount will be due within 2 weeks of your event.

How long can you stay at the venue?

We have 2 hour, 3 hour, and 4 hour packages, please check out our prices page for more information.

How does idle time work?

We classify idle time as any time that we are set up where we are not operational. Setup/teardown typically takes us about half hour to setup/teardown, if you would like us to do this ahead of time to not disrupt the party, the cost would be $50.00/idle hour. If you want us to pause for dinner service and speeches, this is also classified as idle time and we will charge $50/idle hour. i.e. You want us for 4 hours, but want 1 hour for cocktail hour, then a 2 hour break, then we resume and then we run the remaining 3 hours after the dance. Price for this option would be $899 (gold package) +$100 (2 hours idle).

What backdrops can we use?

We have a good selection of fabric, and plastic backdrops and we are continuing to hand pick our backdrops to add to our collection! Be sure to check out or Backdrop gallery for more information.

How many props do you have?

We have over 100 props and we are continuing to hand pick our props to add to our collection! We like to bring a variety of props for your guests to use, but we also like to accommodate our props to your theme. Be sure to check out or Props gallery for a few samples in our collection.

How long does it take to setup and tear down?

It typically takes us about half hour to setup and tear down. The time that we start setting up does not cut into your package time that you choose. i.e 8pm-10pm photobooth service time, set up will happen at 7pm, unless early set up is specified. Early set up is fee is $50/flat fee (must be same day)

How much space do you require?

We typically need about 9’x9′ space. If you have only a small space for us, we can accommodate (i.e. have a sitting booth instead, and/or bringing our portable stand).

Do the photos print instantly on the spot?

Yes, our prints come out automatically! After your pictures are taken, it takes about 5 seconds to print your image and you get one 4″ x 6″ image (double prints can be done – if negotiated prior to the event). Also, we can print 2 – 2″ x 6″ photo strips if you prefer those instead!

How many pictures do you receive?

Your guests can take as many pictures as they like (in the chosen time). Please make sure they are mindful of lineups that they can re-line up if they want to take more pictures. The photos will take less than 10 seconds to print.

How far will you travel for an event?

We can travel anywhere in and around Calgary, Alberta. We only charge $0.50 per km anywhere outside of Calgary city limits, which may be waived depending on your booth package.

How many photos can I have printed?

Up to 2 photos can be printed after each session at no extra charge. Individuals can line up again and again to take new photos. For unlimited printed photos, we charge an additional $200 for the entire event.

Is your company insured and do you have a business license?

You Bet! Pose & Pucker is a registered business. We are covered for up to $2,000,000. You and your guests do not have to worry.
