If you find one really knocks your socks off, jot down their name and contact information. Your wedding vendors that you already have a relationship with is another potential source. And the people that you know best, your family, friends and coworkers may have something to tell you in terms of an experience they might have had. Take your list and setup an appointment with each vendor in order to talk about their service and to take a tour of their facility.
Here are some questions that must be on your agenda when you show up for each appointment. First and foremost, find out how long they have been in business. You want to make sure that the company has been in business at least a few years and won't be out of business before the day of your wedding. You most definitely want to ask for references, past clients can be an excellent source of information. Are they licensed and insured? This is an absolute must, most wedding venues will not allow vendors to operate within their facility if they are not. Talk about the equipment that they use. When it comes to a photo booth, this is essential. You want high quality pictures taken and high quality prints provided to you and your guests. What happens if the booth they provide stops working at your reception? Will an attendant be there at all times? Do they offer package deals for different amounts of time? Have the staff show you a booth while you are on-site. Operate the booth and evaluate the quality. Believe us when we tell you, when you have completed your rounds, you should be able to point to a photo booth provider and say, yes, I want to work with them.
