The Portable Party Company
I have mixed feelings on my experience with The Portable Party Company. I knew I wanted a photobooth at my reception as one of my favors for the guests and PPC offered a fantastic offer that I couldn't turn down. I enjoyed my meetings with the employee I worked with, but from what I understand it has gone through some changes between when I booked and my wedding day.
Pros: everything ran smoothly the day of; I received my flash drive of all photos as promised (great keepsake!!); the props were fun and used a lot!
Cons: the worker who showed up wasn't personable or engaged with our guests; there wasn't much communication around the time of my wedding without me initiating it; my BIGGEST complaint is that our names and date were not present on the photo strips as promised - this is a major reason to use these as a wedding favor and I was highly disappointed on the day of the wedding to see that they each said MOJO big at the top rather than our names and date. Is this a deal breaker? Maybe not - everyone still seemed to enjoy it, but it definitely took away a big piece of the favor...
Everyone had a wonderful time- They handled all of the times and setup so we didn't have to. Trevor was very understanding, we had a unique situation because half of the bridal party was from IN and we were getting the photo booth for the bride and groom as a gift. The gentleman running the booth at the event had a great sense of humor and remained professional at the same time. They were very patient and not pushy at all. I would absolutely go through them again.
This was one of the best features of my wedding. Everyone who attended had a blast using the photo booth. The staff of The Portable Party Company was very easy to work with. I would definitely use them again the future!
What requirements are there for set up at my even location? We require a 5' x 5' area for the booth itself, convenient access to a power receptacle, and (if required) space for our small table to set up props and photo albums...that's it!
Will there be someone from your company on site during the event? Yes! All of our packages include a professional, onsite photo booth attendant. They'll be able to assist guests with photo albums, props, and any other questions they may have!
What is the standard attire of the attendant? Our attendants will arrive and serve your event looking professional - shirt and tie and slacks. If you have a 'theme' event and would like our attendants to blend in (ie Hawaiian party etc), please let us know and we'll try to accommodate your request!
Do you have a website? Almost! Our full service website is about 95% built and should be online shortly! From there, you'll be able to see more information about us, look at some photos, and book and pay for your event ALL online! Stay tuned!
How many people can fit inside the booth at once? Our booths are modern and state of the art and can accommodate 6 - 8 guests without a problem! We offer more space than the traditional 'vintage' booths - more space means more guests and more photos during the time you have the booth!!
How many photos do I get with each rental package? ALL of our packages feature UNLIMITED prints! That's right - take as many photos as you can!!
Will I be able to see my photos online? Yes! We will post some of the photos to our business facebook page. In addition, the VIP package includes free password protected, online hosting of ALL event photos. Didn't reserve the VIP package? No problem! - We can add the secure online access to ANY of our other packages!
Will I get digital copies of the event photos? Yes! The VIP and Executive packages include a thumb drive with all of your event photos! This can be added to the Classic package for a small fee.
Do you require a deposit? Yes, at the time of booking we require a $250 deposit to hold a photo booth for your date. This can be refunded if enough notice is given - please contact us for more details.
Do you charge sales tax? Yes we are required by Pennsylvania law to charge 6% sales tax on all of our transactions. Be weary of companies who try to work for cash, off the books, or 'under the table'.
Are you licensed and insured? Yes! The Portable Party Company LLC is fully licensed with the Pennsylvania Dept. of State, Federal IRS and completely insured. A copy of our insurance policy can be delivered upon request.
