GEM Photo Booth is responsible for the delivery, setup, breakdown, and maintenance of the photo booth during the scheduled rental. Rental hours are counted as consecutive hours with no breaks in run-time. Breaks in the run-time of the photo booth are considered idle time and will be an additional charge at the idle hour rate. We will arrive 45-60 minutes prior to the rental to setup the photo booth. We can arrive earlier to setup the photo booth at the charge of "idle hours". The rate of idle hours is $40 per hour. The rental includes unlimited photo booth sessions during the rental time period. A prop box will be provided for guests to use during the rental. If for some reason the Photo Booth is inoperable 100% of the event or we fail to show up we will refund the entire cost of the rental. We are not liable for any other costs above and beyond our rental fee.

The renter is responsible for providing a solid level area large enough for the photo booth, protected from rain, wind and other elements, and within 20 feet of a standard electrical outlet. The renter is responsible for any damages caused to the Photo Booth and any other equipment we bring during the rental period by you or your guests. Our professional attendant will be onsite to make sure the booth is fully operational and to help with your scrapbook. Please inform us of any special requests you may have regarding the event venue.

The photo booth may run out of paper during your event. We will replenish the paper and may need to shut the booth down for 5 minutes. We will add 5 minutes to the end of your rental period if this occurs. If for any reason the photo booth has issues running properly, we will add the downtime at the end of the rental. This is not a typical situation.

Extra hours are pro-rated at $150 an hour and can be added anytime including at the event. Idle hours are only $40. To cover the cost of employee drive time and fuel, all events exceeding 150 miles round-trip will be charged a travel fee of $0.55 per mile starting at our location.

Local sales tax applies to the total cost of the rental.

A $200 retainer is required to reserve and hold your event date and time, within 7 days of your booking. Then, 1 month prior to the event, the remaining balance must be paid in full. If the total amount is not paid in full 30 days prior to your event GEM Photo Booth reserves the right to cancel your reservation without a refund. A late fee of $40 will be applied every 7 days the balance is not paid in full. The retainer is not eligible for a refund. Cancellations made within 30 days to the event no refunds will be issued and the entire invoice amount must be paid.

GEM Photo Booth will deliver the photo booth to your event venue. If the venue obstructs us from delivering the Photo Booth we are not responsible for lost hours of service. Examples of obstructions are; No ramp/elevator access to photo booth location, or the venue does not allow photo booths. Please check with your venue that photo booths are allowed and they have access for us to roll the booth to the required location.

GEM Photo Booth reserves all rights to use photos taken in our photo booths as we see fit.
