Several times each month, the Prices load up the booth and take it to weddings, birthday parties, proms and other occasions. He said some class reunions have found a sponsor to offset the cost of the booth, which starts at $1,000. The price depends on the number of photos wanted. At a wedding, for example, they can print one for the guest and then one for the bride and groom.
The photos come out on a postcard-size print, and the edges of the print can be embellished with the names of the bride and groom or birthday boy or girl, or just about anything. Corporate parties can add their logos.
"Not only is the print fully customizable, but so is the booth. We can use it with or without the curtains, so we can fit in any number of people," Price said.
The actual booth is fully automated, just like the booths found on the midway in years past.
"You get in, and it has a video prompt -- it asks you to choose between color and black and white, and then it says, 'I'm going to take four photos now,'" Price said.
"By far, every time we take it out, it's the biggest hit of the party. There's always a long line and people rotate through five or six times."
