22. SCRAP BOOK or GUEST BOOKS?
While we used to offer this service to our wedding clients we found that every wedding style is different. Rather than limit all brides and grooms the same few choices of album, we found it better to always offer unlimited prints, provide metallic markers and let wedding clients bring the album of their choice. This results in a custom experience that costs wedding client ZERO. We can also provide links to our favorite affordable album resources.
23. HOW LONG IN ADVANCE SHOULD WE BOOK?
We recommend booking once you have finalized the date with a venue. Spring, fall and holiday’s book very early. Typically we advise clients to book 3 months in advance, if possible.
24. WHAT ABOUT SALES TAX?
Our automated booking system will calculate the full price of your booth including any applicable sales tax. Everything will be itemized for you. Florida State law requires all photographers to charge sales tax for photo booth rentals. We comply with the law. If you are a 501C non-profit organization or are exempt from sales tax, we are happy to exempt the sales tax from your package but you must provide us with a completed NC E-595E sales tax exemption form.
