FAQ


Who IS BEHIND lAMPHOUSE PHOTO CO.?

We are Katherine & Conan Fugit. In 2009 we got married in our backyard in Wichita, Kansas and in 2012, we pulled a camper into that same yard and started a business. That's Lamphouse in a nutshell! 

how does the birdie: vINTAGE pHOTO bOOTH work?

The Birdie Booth: Vintage is a simple, classic vintage-style photo booth that's as easy to use as it is fun! Guests simply step up to the booth, pick out their props, and push the red button. A short countdown before the first photo gives guests time to get their pose perfected then the prints are picked up a few seconds later on the back side of the booth. 

HOW DOES THE BIRDIE: MOD PHOTO BOOTH WORK?

Pretty much just like the Birdie: Vintage! It’s an open-air style booth where guests stand between the booth and backdrop to take photos. It is fully automated but each rental does include an attendant.

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE BIRDIE: VINTAGE AND BIRDIE: MOD?

The Birdie: Vintage takes VERTICAL PHOTOS and the Birdie: Mod takes HORIZONTAL PHOTOS. The Birdie: Vintage is best for smaller groups of people 2-5/photo and the Birdie: Mod is best for larger groups 2-8/photo. Here’s a comparison of photos from each booth:

DO I GET COPIES OF THE PHOTOS TO KEEP?

After the event, all of the full-res individual photos will be uploaded to our gallery or Facebook for you to download and share. Guests are welcome to request an extra print for each person in the photo but UNLIMITED PRINTS in 2 & 3 hour packages DOES NOT apply to scrapbook provided by the host or Lamphouse - those are for your guests to take home only.

BUT I WANT COPIES OF ALL OF THE PRINTS, HOW DO I GET THOSE?

We offer a fully inclusive scrapbook station with 40 page scrapbook album, table, table, cover, extra attendant to man the station, sign, pens, glue and extra copies of each photo for you to keep. If scrapbook tables aren’t your style, we also have a customizable cloth bound keepsake box + copies of all prints that we can deliver to you after the event.

CAN I PROVIDE MY OWN SCRAPBOOK + SCRAPBOOK TABLE?

We do not print extra copies for a scrapbook table or photo guestbook provided by the host. Why? When we provide a FULL scrapbook station, we can make sure that everything goes perfectly and you are left with a beautiful book at the end of the night. If we can’t control how the photos get in the book by providing an extra attendant and supplies, they are usually NOT put in the book at all which is a real bummer. Nobody wants an empty scrapbook at the end of the night and unfortunately, we’ve had to deliver a few. Just let us do the work! We’ll do a good job - promise!

are the birdie: Vintage and birdie: mod open air style?

Yes, the Birdie Booth is open air. No drapes, no enclosures, just life of the party fun. 

Can I share photos from your digital photo booths?

As a matter of fact, you can! So long as there is an open wi-fi connection, photos can be emailed directly to your guests from the touchscreen. No WiFi? No problem! Emails will be queued and sent as soon as the computer can establish a connection later in the day.   

HOW LARGE ARE THE BOOTHS?

The Little "Lampy" Camper needs about 16 feet in length by 7 feet in height by 6 feet in width. We can park it where ever you like, but keep in mind that the closer we are to the action, the better and we're happy to bring it inside of venues if there's room! 

The Birdie Booth: Vintage and Birdie Booth: Mod are our most compact offerings, taking up as little as 10 feet x 10 feet (backdrop included)!

CAN THE BIRDIE: VINTAGE OR BIRDIE:MOD BE OUTDOORS?

No. The Birdies are designed for indoor use only due to the unpredictable nature of wind and sun.

how is your prop selection?

We have over 50 props that we bring in and out of rotation so we never get the same photos twice. Giant scissors? Check. Light up arrows? Check! And that's just the tip of the iceberg. The majority of our props are handmade in our wood shop to be durable, one-of-a-kind and fun!

WHAT BACKDROPS DO YOU HAVE? WHAT IF I WANT TO USE MY OWN?

We have a plethora of unique, and handmade backdrops that are a perfect fit for our booths. We want to take the BEST picture possible and that requires very specific sizes and styles of backdrops so we recommend that you use one of ours. They are pretty cool, after all! 

How large of an event can you handle?

The sky's the limit for the Little "Lampy" Camper and the Birdie: Vintage or Birdie: Mod! Weddings, birthdays, corporate events? Both of our digital booths can handle any volume of people. On average, the booths can take about 300 pics in 3 hours. 

is my event a good fit for a photo booth?

No two events are the same but in our experience, what makes a good fit for a photo booth is a large crowd (>100) who are dressed to impress and eager to take pictures (a drink or two doesn't hurt either). What doesn't make a good fit? Come-and-go events, small events, events where guests are eager to get to their seats and stay there (concerts, sporting events, etc.).

what kind of layouts do you offer? 

All of our photo booths can create traditional 2x6" strips or 4x6" prints. Each print will have no more than 4 photos. We design a custom layout using your event's themes, colors, hashtags free of charge. 

HOW SOON SHOULD I BOOK A PHOTO BOOTH FOR MY EVENT? 

We usually recommend booking your photo booth as soon as you have your date and location nailed down. Having an event May-June or September-October? The earlier the better as those are our busiest months of the year.
