The Fast Booth Experience– Award Winning Every Year Since Our Start in 2011
What do you want in a photo booth for your event?
We started our photo booth business to solve a problem. As DJs and photographers by trade, we wanted more for our clients than the photo booths we experienced, and still experience, from other services. We wanted an alternative to the big black booths which took up huge amounts of space, did not look very nice, use black curtains, took poor quality pictures, took forever to print, had little to no options, set up in front of guests, had poor quality props, put their website on the clients prints, had a large number of costly up charges, and didn't seem to care about the very special events happening during your reception.
It's all about the experience.
We are here to change all of that! We offer both open and enclosed booth. Our open booths look MUCH nicer than any others we've seen. Our enclosed booths have a much smaller footprint. We need be versatile and be able to fit in some unique spaces. We have black or white booths available. We have 16 specialty backdrops to match your event. Our white/grey curtains or special backdrops provide much more complimentary photos over black curtains. We use canon t5i cameras and top model DNP printers. This provides the best quality and fastest printing available. We also print up to three 4x6s or six 2x6 strips per sitting. This all makes for an average of 7 times more prints than other services. We provide all of our options at no additional charge depending on availability.
We only run packages that include idle time for wedding receptions. Photo booth services that offer three hours are missing a few very important details about a wedding reception. If you run at the beginning of your event, your three hours turns into 90 minutes very quickly because of dinner. We also don't like when a photo booth is running during toasts, prayer, and introductions. This takes away from those moments with loud distractions. Now, if the photo booth were to run the last three hours of the event, they will be setting up in front of your guests. We don't want that either. We run your photo booth for cocktail hour, close for dinner, and open for our remaining three hours of service. This lets us not only be ,"out of the way," but also gets you using the booth during high volume times. We don't want you paying for time when the booth doesn't even have a chance to be used much.
Our prop selections is made up of high quality PVC. We want durable, vibrant, and long lasting props. Something that looks nice in pictures. Each booth set up goes out with $400-$600 worth of props. We pride ourselves on the best selection in the area of quality props. We try and stay away from the cardboard on a wooden stick, which most photo booth services use.
We create custom designs, from scratch, for each of our couples. We want something special to your day. Something that will not be seen at any of your friend's or relative's weddings. Something that matches your event or invitations. Something to be proud of and an integral part of your wedding day memories. Most photo booth services will put their name, website, or number of your prints. We do not brand your photo strips. A photo booth service who puts their website or phone number on your photo strips when you hire them for a service is not thinking about you. They are only thinking about their next event.
?Many other ways we are better include, we always have our booths attended, we use full size memory books and scrap booking additions, we provide the lowest cost per print of any photo booth company in our area. Guests may choose between Color, Black & White, or Sepia photos. A digital copy of your event photos immediately following the event (flash drive) is provided. This includes the original full size photo, the print, and a GIF file if multiple photos are taken. Clients receive an online galley of all events photos if they so choose.
Our speed is one of our main benefits, especially for groups over 100. We want people in and out and back dancing. A 6.8 second print and cut time instead of the typical 40 seconds means you get many more prints and two distinct run throughs, initial, and party shots later in the evening. We usually take three instead of four pictures and our photo strips come out cut. This all adds up to an average of 7 times more pictures/prints over all other photo booths. Other companies would have to bring 5-9 photo booths for you to get as many prints as one of our booths.
How do we know we are better? We get to see many other photo booths while working our other services. Let us show you set ups and sample strips side by side.
All clients who have met with us and have seen the difference between our photo strip & set up quality compared to other photo booths in the area, have booked with us.

Photobooth:Sent on 01/01/2015
Great selection of props. We've been to other weddings recently and their prop selection couldn't compare. Loved the option to be able to customize our photostrip.
Great. Easy to work with. TJ did a great job keeping things on schedule and letting us know what we needed to do and when. The day does become a blur and you get caught up in everything, so it was great to have TJ letting us know, Hey, we need to cut the cake, we need to do the dances (father/daughter, mother/son), lets get you in the photobooth, ect. So glad TJ got us in the photobooth as well since we didn't really make it in there other than that time.
Very easy to talk to and asked great questions along the way to make sure we understood everything and were thinking about the details.

Fast Booth was a wonderful addition to our son's wedding at Castle Farms, Charlevoix. After researching photo booths in Northern Michigan, we were intrigued with the quality of Fast Booth's website and the reviews we read. And...to our delight, all of the accolades were verified in our experience!Sent on 09/20/2018
We opted for the Open Booth machine which was sleek and high-tech looking. The props and memory book were kept well-organized and neatly displayed all night, and the printing of the photos was very fast, as promised.
One of the keys to the success of this experience were the two attendants-Katie and TJ. Katie made sure that a copy of each photo went into the attractive memory book and also encouraged guests to write a personal note to the bridal couple next to their photo. Both Katie and TJ worked with guests during their photo sessions-to keep the line moving, to answer questions, to hand guests copies of their photos, to collect back the props and to offer guests electronic copies of their pictures. This customer service was consistent with the fact that Katie and TJ were very accessible and helpful during the planning process; always quick to respond to emails or phone calls.
Our guests thoroughly enjoyed the Open Booth format: it was fun for guests to see others getting photos taken; allowed more guests to pose in a single picture; and, guests could more easily interact, while they were waiting their turn.
We had a large destination wedding (250) and most everyone took part in the photo booth experience. A special thank you to Katie and TJ who were generous enough to add 10 extra pages to the memory book to accommodate all of our photos!
Fast Booth was the best photo booth we've ever experienced; we would not hesitate to hire them again.
My husband and I always know we are in good hands when we officiate weddings with TJ and his wife, Katie. Always look forward to working with them. They are fun, professional and sound is always right on! Their equipment is top notch quality!
What a great service and company. So much more than just playing music.
Very talented DJ with the latest equipment and he knows how to use it to keep the guests having a great time.
