This year we unveiled our third style of photo booth called “Photo to Go”. Like all of our photo booths, this booth is professionally constructed, portable, and aesthetically pleasing for your wedding reception or party. However, there are other aspects that make this photo booth stand out from the rest.
- Photo to Go can print out an unlimited amount of photo strips on demand. Therefore, everyone can grab a photo strip copy for themselves, even if 5 people cram into the picture! Better still, this photo booth can print your pictures in a 4×6 format as well.
- WIFI connectivity allows for social sharing. You can email and upload pictures to Facebook and Twitter.
- After guests take their pictures, they can leave you a video message up to 1 minute, which will be saved to your flash drive.
- And of course, you can expect higher paper quality and super fast printing with our dye sublimation printers. This is what makes your pictures archival. Not all photo booth companies offer dye sub printers, so ask as you shop around.
You can experience the Photo to Go and our other photo booths by scheduling an appointment with us. Call 513.256.3460 or click here
Allow us to re-create your favorite photo using all the pictures of your guests from the photo booth! It makes a great keepsake and comes in the following sizes:
Small: 14 x 11
Large: 20 x 16

Say Cheese photo booths are known for quality construction, very fast printing, and superb image quality. There are some fundamental factors that affect the image quality of our photo booths and distinguish us as the premier photo booth rental company.
First, your pictures will be printed on true photo stock paper. As you shop around and look at different photo booth rental companies, we encourage you to ask each vendor for hard copy samples because it’s a good litmus test for the quality of product you are receiving. True photo stock paper will be thicker and glossy on both sides of the paper. Just think of the lab quality paper you get from Kodak, HP, or Fuji at your local photo lab. Our paper is manufactured by Mitsubishi and is the highest grade paper you get get
Second, notice that we only used a white backdrop to our pictures in order to maintain a natural contrast. This insures that people with different skin tones and folks who may be wearing darker clothes do not get lost with a black background.
Third, our photo booths focus on the shoulder up, which means the faces of your guests will be much closer to the camera, bringing out more personality in the pictures for your scrapbook. Often the faces found in our pictures will be the same size if not larger than the whole body of someone who took a picture in another photo booth. This is key.
Finally, we use only commercial grade, dye-sublimation printers to produce high resolution DPI (“dots per inch”) that cannot smudge or fade over time. Plus our printers automatically cut two identical strips (so your photo booth attendant does not have to do it on the spot). We do not offer a grid or 4×6 format because we want both you and your guests to get a copy to take home.
Photo booths are still considered a new service relative to the wedding industry and many consumers do not know the difference amongst the various machines to get the job done. There is a difference and we hope you are a little more educated as you shop around. Happy planning!
Props? Yeah, we’ve got ‘em. They are available with our “Cheesier” and “Cheesiest” packages. Who doesn’t chuckle at the picture of a grown man wearing the pink boa with giant glasses, or the beautiful blond woman with the Groucho Marx mustache? These are just a few of the many examples that come to mind when you are looking for a laugh and that next priceless picture your friend or family member will never live down. Props are (and always will be) fun.
Props are a matter of personal taste, so here are some guidelines to help you decide whether or not you want to offer them to your guests along with the photo booth. Some brides want more of a “black tie affair” atmosphere to their celebration, whereas others want rip-roarin’ fun with an emphasis on crazy but not quite regrettable pictures for their scrapbook. But for those brides who are stuck in the middle, first decide what scrapbook you want to be looking at several years from your reception. Those brides who desired a formal, more elegant affair opted for black and white pictures only. As you would expect, they did not want any props in any of the pictures for their scrapbook. It makes for a very classy, uniform looking scrapbook.
Second, realize that props have the potential to slow down the picture-taking process. Some of our brides wanted to supply their own props and supply they did! They bought a plethora of props, enough to give everyone their own mask, and a Halloween makeover. Offering too many choices can cause your guests to get too focused on picking the perfect prop and slow things down. Speaking of masks, be aware that you may not know who some of the people are in your scrapbook because you can’t recognize them. Consider your scrapbook to be a visual guest book. Thanks to photo booths, you now have faces and messages instead of just signatures in a small white book.
With all this said, props help to kick start the party and break the ice for people to start taking pictures. And by the end of the night, it’s common for people to argue who has bragging rights to the goofiest, most off-the-wall, “I had a few too many drinks” photo strips at your reception. Regardless, your guests will have fun and cherish their pictures for years to come.
Join Q102 and Say Cheese Photo Booth on October 21 at the Madison Theater in Covington, KY for Bosom Ball 2010. This year’s event will feature live music from national artists Sara Bareilles, Crystal Bowersox, and others. It will be a night of great music, drinks, and fun. Doors open at 6:30 and tickets are $25.00. Get into the photo booth with your friends and have a blast supporting a great cause! Pictures will be $2.00, with all proceeds going to breast cancer research.
Well, we had four events this past Saturday, one of which was Good Samaritan Hospital’s black tie gala held at the Hyatt downtown. As guests rode up the escalator to the Grand Ballroom, they were welcomed with an atmosphere filled with African drum music, bamboo styled open bar stations, and lots of activities provided by Accent on Cincinnati, including face painting by Fabulous Faces, decadent chocolate displays by Chocolate Passions
and even a station where folks could make African themed hats. Music was provided by the
Endless Summer Band
live band which kept folks on the dance floor till the end. This band is fabulous! We had three photo booths on hand to supply about 600 people. Folks were able to receive duplicate photo strips on magnets (for their fridge) in only 11 seconds. This allowed us to provide photo booth fun in assembly line fashion to ensure everyone gets a crack or two at making a great memory. Best of all, the logo for the event was provided at the bottom of each strip so everyone could remember the event and the fun they had for years to come.
Photo booths: they’re universally appealing because all of us, young and old, love pictures. Pictures remind us of places we have been to and experiences we have shared with various people in our lives. Pictures literally document our lives. Now imagine having a photo booth at your wedding, easily one of the most important days of your life. It is a day for which dozens of hours are logged in preparation to create the “perfect day” full of memories with those who merit the invitation. Much of this preparation is spent on entertaining and feeding your guests, as everything from the food to the song list undergoes scrutiny. You want to be proud of your wedding. You want to “show off” in a sense, and give your guests a time to remember. Renting a photo booth covers all your bases and best of all… you get the credit!
The following are four very good reasons to consider renting a photo booth from Say Cheese:
1. FUN! - After over 300 weddings, we can virtually guarantee your guests will love this idea and give you a big thank you for letting them take pictures. Photo booths have an uncanny ability to elicit silliness out of even the most introverted of people. When the curtain closes, all bets are off, and people let loose with their friends and family.
2. Instant Results- Our photo booths print AND cut two identical photo strips in only 11 seconds. This means all of your guests will have opportunities to get into the booth and yuck it up and try to outdo one another and not have to wait for photos to be developed. Say goodbye to disposable cameras (and c pictures of water fountains and ceiling fans)!
3. Party Favors - Brides LOVE our fridge magnets. They fit nicely onto each photo strip, allowing your guests to put their memories on their fridge. We understand that getting the right party favor can be an expensive experiment at pleasing your guests. Our fridge magnets provide a cost effective solution to this common wedding planning problem by giving your guests a sentimental treasure that they won’t merely eat or throw away. You will find it on their fridge the next time you’re over!
4. Everyone Gets pictures - Since our photo booths print two identical copies, your guests will have something to take home without you being left out. All rentals come standard with a flash drive to capture all photos digitally. You can then upload your pictures onto your computer and Facebook. Plus, if you book our “cheesiest package”, you will receive a scrapbook filled with notes and signatures of your guests next to their picture.

Rent a quality photo booth
When you rent a photo booth from Say Cheese, rest assured you are renting the best equipment. Not all photo booths are created equal. When renting a photo booth, using commercial grade equipment is paramount. Why? Because the last thing you want is something to break down or not work properly. Take a photographer for example. Most brides, when shopping around for a photographer, automatically assume that photographers use state of the art technology. It’s probably not even a question they would ask. Renting a photo booth that doesn’t contain commercial grade equipment is like asking a photographer to capture the moments of your event using a digital camera you can buy at Target.
So, what is commercial grade equipment? Essentially it’s any kind of equipment used in a commercial setting (not at home) with some proprietary feature. In other words, commercial equipment is created for specific applications with demanding workloads. It’s equipment that you can’t buy “off the rack”. Think of it this way: If you ever had a job in which everyone shares a copier, that copier is considered a commercial piece of equipment. Compare that to the HP printer you might see on your desk at work or at home. One piece of machinery is designed to crank out hundreds of pages by the minute. Your standard HP printer at home doesn’t have that capability. So, how does this tie into renting a photo booth? Well, we use Mitsubishi medical imaging printers that print AND cut photo strips in a mere 17 seconds. It may take up to 30 seconds or more for our competitors to print their pictures using the technology at their disposal. This may not seem like a significant time gap, but it makes a huge difference. Over a five hour rental, it can mean the difference between 400 and 600 pictures. Also, a Say Cheese photo booth means your guests will not have to wait in line as long to receive their pictures. That means more pictures for your scrapbook and for guests to take home, as well as more opportunities for them to have fun in the booth.
At Say Cheese photo booth, we insist on using commercial grade equipment that can take a beating and still deliver high quality pictures time after time, week after week.
So, you want to rent a photo booth for your wedding or party, but also realize a deposit must be made. Did you know that Say Cheese Photo Booth requires only a $100 deposit to secure your date? It’s the lowest of any photo booth rental company, and one that we are proud to offer our customers. Our small deposit frees up hundreds of dollars that could be spent on other things such as flowers, your cake, or a DJ. Many photo booth rental companies will ask you to pay upwards of 50% of the total cost of rental. For example, if a rental company advertises a $1,000 rental, you must front $500 just to secure your date. That could be $500 down the drain should you change your date. Not so with Say Cheese. The remaining balance on a Say Cheese photo booth rental is payable up to seven days prior to your wedding, so you have plenty of time to delegate dollars. Oh, did we mention all the different ways you can pay for your rental? We take American Express, Discover, Visa, and Mastercard. You can also pay using Pay Pal, even if you don’t have your own account set up. Paying by check will never go out of style either. A small deposit and plenty of payment options – that’s the Say Cheese way to photo booth fun.
