I was just at an event, how do I download my photos?

Typically photos are available online for downloading the day after an event. To find your photos, either follow the link on our home page, or do so HERE. If you'd like professional quality prints or enlargements, you can order them through the link as well.


What do your photo booths look like and how do they work?

Our photo booths are modern, free standing and operated by 1-2 professional photographers - with 3 styles to fit everyone's budget and needs. Additionally we also offer roaming event photographers that can print onsite as well.


As far as the equipment, we utilize pro series Canon cameras and flattering studio lighting.  For our basic booths, we generally use either a black or white backdrop, but can also create custom printed backdrops or use a green screen for more tailored looks. In terms of set up, the booth can be almost anywhere, inside or out - we just need about 10 x 10 feet and access to electricity within 25 feet. Also all of our booths print high quality dye-sublimation prints onsite, with an additional online gallery for guests to download the next day. Additionally if you'd like to give your guests the option of uploading their photos directly to social media, we can do that too! With the ease of a touch screen, party goers can immediately share their photos via facebook, twitter, email and text. 






What do your prints look like?

We are really excited about the quality of our prints...and we think you'll see a quite a difference! If you'd like to see samples, just let us know and we'll send some out to you! During an event, all our photos are custom cropped and edited on site and then printed within 7 seconds for immediate delivery to your guests.  We use state of the art, dye sublimination printers for all of our events.  Dye sub printing creates a protective layer on each image, preventing damage and enabling your photo to last for up to 100 years in normal conditions. They are also water and fingermark resistant.  Prints can also be branded and watermarked with an overlay of your logo or event information.


I want something unique for my event, any ideas?

We have lots of photographic options to make your event very unique!  Besides photo booths, we offer green screens, printed backdrops, red carpet experience, large format projections, roaming photography, flip books and even aerial booths. We also love creating custom backdrops and sets...anything from vintage wallpaper to more in depth build outs and sourced set dressings.  As for props, we have it all.  And we're always on the look out for new pieces to keep things fresh.  If you have a specific look or themed event, let us know and we'll bring the perfect stash.


So what's a flip book?

A fun new photo booth option is the flip book! A 6 second video is taken of your guests - and then our specialized software breaks that film down into 48 still images.  Which we then print, cut and bind into a mini book. The whole process, from filming to finished product, takes about 90 seconds.  The covers can also be designed and branded however you like.  Perfect for party favors, launch parties and wedding receptions!


I've been looking around at several photo booth companies, why should I choose you?


Phototainment is a local small business owned and operated by a native Portlander (Tom Cook - more on the 'About' page.) Additionally Phototainment has been a leader in the industry since 2011 - having worked with everyone from small birthday parties on a budget, to Fortune 100 companies, grassroots non-profit fundraisers and beyond. So we know what it takes to make an incredible photo booth experience - PROFESSIONALISM, GUEST SERVICES, ATTENTION TO DETAIL, ON GOING INNOVATIONS, AND PREMIUM PHOTO QUALITY. 


I want to hire you for an event out of town, do you travel?


Yes! We've done events at the coast, central Oregon and even Idaho.  Just contact us and we can discuss our mileage rate.  If you have an event in Seattle area, we have you covered there too.  Our sister company (or we should say 'brother' company), PHOTOTAINMENT SEATTLE, will take very good care of you - ask for my brother Paul!


How do I book and secure a date for my event?

For larger events, we ask for a $500.00 deposit, with the balance due the night of your event, in the form of cash, check, credit card payment, PayPal.  Whatever your budget we can figure out the perfect photo entertainment for you event!
