If you're trying to decide between a Photographer or a Photo Booth for your event...
First, I want to say these are different types of services.
Second I want to say, I know some AMAZING Photographers, and their work is not comparable to a photo booth; I mean that in a good way. I could go on and on about my faves and how great they are... but I won't do that here.
If you can't get both, go with the Photo Booth! Here's Why...
Same Company - New features!
I started this business in late 2013 offering only Face Painting. The next year I added Temporary Airbrush Tattoos. The following year we teamed up with Scotty Nut Nut Entertainment to offer Balloon Twisting, another year later we added what we called a "photo spot"; which was my way of saying a photo booth that was not on the same scale as what most photo booth companies offered.
Here we are in 2017 and we have done major upgrades! We have added more painters, we have teamed up with other professionals to offer packages with Bounce Houses, DJs, and Caricatures, and our photo booth is top notch!
If you are anything like my family your kids are picking out their costume ideas for the next year shortly after Halloween is over; sometimes before.
Halloween is almost here... oh the excitement!
Costumes and Accessories are what it's all about! Whether you're putting together your own costume or standing at party city calling out for a number off their giant wall of photos; you want to like what you are going to wear, or what your kids put on; and if there is a costume contest.... win it!
I have received quite a few emails these last few weeks asking why I am not out at more public events. I don't have an exact answer for that; there are a couple reasons.
I have reached out to some events that have been using the same face painter for years, so they stick with them. This may seem odd, but that makes me happy. Loyalty is hard to come by and it's good to know that events and businesses show that respect. While some parents have come to enjoy my work most, (and I appreciate that) others do a nice job and have loyal customers just the same.
If you're shopping around for the first time looking for entertainment you may be in shock when you find out pricing. Don't freak out so soon, a lot goes into that amount.
What you are paying for?
Before I started my career as a professional face and body painter I had no idea what a face painter charged or what that cost included.
If you are thinking about hiring entertainment for your next event, face and body art is a great choice!
So... what should you look for when hiring a professional? Let me start out by saying that just because you find a face painter online or at a public event does not mean that they are a professional. I mean they are in the sense a "professional", because they are working in a profession; but that doesn't automatically mean you should hire them...
