Who's Behind The Booth?
Hazel Gacula, born and raised in Hawaii who studied graphic design but is in love with photography. After seeing a huge need for exciting and professional-quality photo booths at parties, Hazel decided to take matters into her own hands and create a perfect photo booth, Photo Perfect Hawaii!
How many people can fit in one photo?
On average 2-8 people, but we’ve seen up to 20 squeezes into a group shot. Consider it a challenge.
Will there be someone at the booth?
Yes, there will be two professional, energetic and engaging booth attendant at your event ensuring that everything runs smoothly and that guests will have the time of their life.
What are the space/power requirements?
We require at least a 6 ft. x 9 ft. space on completely level flooring (no gravel, uneven ground, etc), at least 8ft. of height, and 1 dedicated 3-pronged outlet within 20 feet. That said, we can modify the booth set up to fit into much smaller spaces if absolutely necessary, but why would you want to limit AWESOME?!?
What kind of professional equipment do we use?
Photo Perfect Hawaii uses top-notch Canon DSLR cameras with a nifty professional dye-subliminal photo printer calibrated specifically for that camera. Dye Sublimation printing doesn't print in dots like that of inkjet printing; so it provides a much higher photo image quality. In addition, each print has an over-coating protective layer that is water and fingerprint resistant and can make the photo last up to 50 years under normal environments (or about 10 seconds in the hands of a two-year-old).
Does Photo Perfect give any discounts?
If you’d like to "go green" by not having prints see the next question below for an additional discount.
Unfortunately, we do not give an additional discount, but I must say our prices are very competitive. We have the same machine as other local photo booths who charge $1,000+.
Can I go green?
Yes! Having an eco-friendly event? Our popular GoGreen option is a photo booth without paper prints. You’ll save $100 off the cost of your rental and save the environment at the same time! All of the guest's favorite social sharing features will still be enabled during the event if WiFi is provided and all the digital photos will be delivered after the event via USB and online gallery.
How do I pay?
You can pay us online from the comfort of your couch through our online booking system. We accept all major credit cards. If you'd prefer to pay via check or cash let us know and we'll make it happen!
Does Photo Perfect Hawaii travel?
We are located in Honolulu and will travel up to 30 miles free of charge. Any locations beyond that will come at an additional cost.
Does Photo Perfect Hawaii have insurance?
We got you covered! We have a liability insurance certificate of $2M. Just let us know if you would like to request a copy.
How early will Photo Perfect Hawaii arrive at my event?
We arrive one hour early at the scheduled time. The setup time does not count.
Does Photo Perfect Hawaii take color or black & white photos?
Both! After the guest takes their photo they have a choice to print out their photos in color or black & white on the touch-screen.
What do the prints look like? What size are they?
Each print is customized to fit your specific event or theme! We'll come up with a custom graphic on the print and match the colors to compliment the background. Although Photo Perfect Hawaii can print thin strips, we tend to favor 4x6 inch prints as they're bigger, bolder and hold up to wear and tear better!
So we had a blast at our event! Now what?
All of your AWESOME images will be in an online viewing gallery where you and guests can share, get FREE downloads. Spread the word to your guests and download them all! These galleries can be password protected if you want, but that is totally up to you!
How many photos can we take? Do we get copies?
We don’t believe in limiting how many times guests can enjoy taking photos in the booth. Also, for any of our packages that include printing, print copies are unlimited as well. We want everyone to walk away with a print and feel like they are always welcome in the booth.
Does Photo Perfect Hawaii have props?
OH DO WE?!? Props are our favorite part! Without props guests can be very camera shy, but throw a unicorn head in the mix and boy do guests go bonkers! We add new props all the time! Need custom props to fit your event or theme? Contact us, we'd love to make it happen!
Can you provide a guestbook?
We can! Guestbooks are one of our most popular package add-ons. We have a different guest book starting at $100.
Do you have a green screen photo booth background option?
Yes! Green screen is a crazy fun way to get really creative with your event. We can do one background image or dozens. There is an additional cost for the green screen because of the additional lighting equipment and design work needed. If you are interested in exploring this option, let us know, and we will get you a custom quote.
My company wants you to help promote our brand. Can you help with this?
Absolutely! We have extensive experience in social media/online marketing. We can help you come up with a creative concept that fits your specific brand or business and leads to as much exposure and engagement as possible. Contact us for more details.
Can you do outdoor events?
Our apologies as of August 1, 2019, we no longer do outdoor events.
