What is the Slo Mo Booth?

7 seconds turned into 21 seconds. Super cool right? Suddenly every thing is so super slow and man, people's faces look funny that slowed down! Confetti and balloons take on a new meaning!

Step right in front of the Gif Booth, post for 4 photos and ta dah! You'll get an animated gif of your 4 photos that you can post on social media! It's super fun and you'll look like a little stop motion video. How cool is that?

Why is Giggle and Riot more awesome than the rest!

Cuz' we strive to be baby, and it shows! We know our booths are not for everyone. People who love our booths are usually stylish and chic and recognize that they deserve a booth that is more fun and more snazzy. Frankly, our clients know they deserve the best. Our colors, photos and prints are much better quality and our printer prints them out lightning fast! Our props are custom picked to match your event and we are always on the hunt for new ones. And we pride ourselves on having the best and most varied backdrops to compliment your event and make it more fun. We might cost a little more than your average booth but then again, we are far from average. We are different from the rest and if we dare say, one of the best booths out there!

Will I be able to see myself when I take the photo?

You will get a live preview, you check for spinach in your teeth and crazy nostril hair!

What do I need to provide?

10x10x10 shaded space and electricity are pretty much perfect. We’ll bring our own extension cord.

I hear you do Instagram prints too?

Yup, that’s how we roll! #giggleandriot

What you do flipbooks as well?

Absolutely! Just contact us!

Do you have lights?

Yes! We illuminate the set so you can dazzle and be dazzled! Shine on!

How many prints do I get?

Choose from one 4×6 print or two 2×6 strips.

Do you also do video?

We do! It’s like so 2014! We can even pull off slow motion!

Can I get a print of my photo?

Heck to the yes! What’s the point otherwise?!

How many people can you fit?

Since the booth is open air style, there’s no need to treat the booth like a clown car. That is, unless you like clowns. Our record so far is 26 people!

How many photos can I take?

Millions! Okay, as many as you’d like.

How does the booth take my photo?

Just tap the screen and strike a pose!

Do you include an attendant?

Absolutely. Someone is available to bring the magic for the entire event, from set up until we roll up the set.

Who takes my Photo?

The camera does. And Mr. Pointer Finger. You simply prepare for your shot, and the camera is ready when you are.
 

Why do your photos look so good?

Right? Superior lights, radtastic backdrops and out of this world props make you look oh so smashing! Also our specially trained attendants are well equipped to turn up the fun factor and make you look oh so good in your booth! People love our booths so much they want to buy one for their homes!

How much space do you need?

We require at least a 8x8x8 space, please make sure we have access to constant electricity within 15-20 feet and level ground.

Can you set up outdoors?

Yes, we can provide a canopy for extra cost but we ask that you please don't make us work in the rain – our equipment gets sad when it's wet! Otherwise, please be sure we have consistent shade, access to constant electricity within 15-20 feet and level ground. We really don't like direct sunlight since the equipment may overheat!

How can I ensure that my booth is a hit?

Tell people that you will have a photo booth at the event, prep them to have fun! It's all about the hype right? Place the photo booth in a high traffic area, typically near where the drinks are, but please keep us away from dark, lonely corners! We would also love it if we were away from the speakers and the DJ so your guests can interact with your attendants without having to spoil the fun!

Do you cost more than other booths?

Some booths yes, but baby, we are oh so worth it! The best and widest collection of backdrops, amazing light quality, top notch customer service before and after your event and ever lasting love and photo booth cheesiness. That are just some of the goodies you get with us but don't stop us there. Our amazing Yelp reviews and customer testimonials prove just how much we love to serve our clients, go above and beyond and bring our A game to every event. We love to customize every single event for you, so you will never have the same old boring props as another event, it's all about you baby and you're the star!

Why don’t you have enclosed booths?

We have all open air booths because we get to fit more people that way! Our record is 26 people, beat that! Typically, in a traditional enclosed booth, a bride with a wedding dress can only fit 1 or 2 more people in it with her. Also, having an open booth like ours means way more interesting backdrops that we can customize for your party. Open booths also means that guests' clothes stay on  (trust us on this!) and everything stays relatively PG 13. Lastly, open air booths mean open entertainment for your other guests! Guests are free to photo bomb as much as they want, which is an art in itself. This encourages other guests to join in on the fun. And really, if you do want privacy, we do have the option of enclosing our booths with privacy curtains!

This is awesome!

Right?! We agree! And we want to share it with the world!!

Where are you based?

Right now, Sacramento and San Francisco but we’re also jazzing up the San Jose, Napa, Sonoma and Lake Tahoe areas. Oh yes, we easily travel within Northern California, baby!

Will you guys have dinner with me?

Are there sporks involved? P.S: Caroline really loves dessert and is easily bribed with pastries!

How do I book you guys?

Email or call us. Hurry up because we book fast and we hate seeing you have a case of the sad's. For your convenience, we do everything online because it’s so fabulously green.

Do you offer extra special service?

As long as we don’t get arrested!

What makes this awesome for my corporate event?

Email capture of your guests baby! Not to mention customized newsletters and emails. Imagine the endless mailing list and marketing possibilities! We also do custom graphics and branding!

Do you have insurance?

You bet! We want to make sure everyone is covered with more than the dazzling glow of our lights!

What can I do in the booth?

As long as no one gets naked, we won’t have to shield our eyes!

Do you come early to set up?

Absolutely. The hours we provide doesn’t include set-up and take down. We arrive early to set up and we will clean up after ourselves. We’re just that nifty.
