Fequently Asked Questions 

Q: What is a Photo Booth?

A. A photo booth is a magical contraption that creates fun and excitement while capturing memories at any event.  It's like Disneyland...the happiest place on Earth, but in a smaller scale... a much, much smaller scale—like something that would fit in a 10' x 10' area. The best thing about it is the instant gratification that everyone enjoys, like a Polaroid photo.  All that fun and excitement is captured within the photo booth and voila—printed within 8.3 seconds! Yes, our booth prints on site!!!


Q: What kind of packages do you offer?

A. On our Welcome page you'll see we have a few options from 2hrs to 8hrs. Depending on your event needs each slightly differs. If you want something and you don't see it listed, please contact us and we'll be happy to accommodate you :)

Q: How much space do you need?

A. For the best results, we ask for 10x10x10 feet. The actual unit typically sits 6-7 feet from the backdrop, but we still need room for a prop/drink table. 6ft and 4 ft table available upon request, or we ask that the venue supply us with one for matching decor. 


Q. Do I need to supply anything?

A. See above for table- You can also provide signage with your wedding or event hashtag if you'd like. Logos, or a photo if you want your template to have a certain brand we need that information, a couple weeks before hand. You'll get a questionnaire to fill out where you can submit all those details.


Q. What if we don’t have WiFi at the venue?

A. No worries!  For events out in the wilderness with no WiFi connection, photos will be automatically uploaded once a connection is found. (or Add on a hotspot to your package).


Q: What are the costs?

A. Our packages have been designed to suit a variety of needs—from birthday parties to weddings to corporate events to festivals...etc.  Check out our Packages page and choose one that's right for your event. Upon picking the time frame, there are side options to add-on for other specifics.

Q: What kind of power do you need?

A. Dashoots Photobooth requires a dedicated (nothing else plugged into the same outlet) 15 or 20 amp 120v (USA Standard) THREE PRONG outlet for power.


Q: How long do you need for set-up/break-down? 

A. Set-up and photo testing takes about 45 minutes, and roughly 60 minutes if using a Tinsel backdrop. This time is not billed to you. Break down can be about 30-40 minutes. 


Q: What is idle time?

A. Idle Time is essentially wait time- we do not leave our equipment unattended...

...i.e...Appointment time 2pm, but do not want operations to start until 5pm, because the set up takes approx. 45-60 minutes we would be idle for 2 hours, the client would be charged during those 2 hours of idle time.


Q: Can Dashoot's Booth be set up outside?

A. Yes, but not always preferred. Although Bend, Oregon is amazing, we could have the off chance of wind, rain, T-Storms, and snow that forfeit services outside.

With backdrops that act like sails in the wind, we require an outdoor venue include a cover and backdrops must be placed near a wall, and the whole unit must be covered. Tinsel backdrops are not for outdoor use- please choose a different backdrop.


Q. Do you travel?

A. Yes. We charge by mile outside Deschutes County. Rates may vary, inquire at the time of booking.


Q. What are my backdrop options?

A. Click here to find out. 


Q. Can I bring my own fabric backdrop?

A. Yes!  Make sure there’s a 4” loop hemmed on top so we can easily slide it on our rod.  Our typical backdrop measures at 9’ high x 9' wide.


Q. Are props provided?

A. Our collection of props are complimentary with every booking.  Doesn’t fit your theme or décor?  BYOP (Bring Your Own Props) or let us know what you're looking for and we can help you provide them for an additional fee.


Q. How many people can fit in the booth?

A. As many as you want!  There are no limits.


Q: Can children use the booth?

A. Absolutely! Kids are the best at photoboothing!  Kids under 3 must be held by an adult, but the rest are at their own risk stepping with our assistance onto a booth box. For children's parties, we can set the booth up at a shorter height.
