PHOTO BOOTH INFORMATION
About the booth
The Smile Lab is an open-air photo booth. Unlike traditional photo booths where you squeeze onto a tiny bench behind a curtain, the open-air setup allows you to fit as many friends in front of our fun backdrop and into the picture as you like! After launching our original photo booth tower design in 2014, we are excited to present The Smile Lab 3.0, an even sleeker, more compact, and very mobile housing unit which we have perfected for all our photo booth magic. Our top-of-the-line equipment setup comes complete with a touch-screen interface where you simply press a button, then pose. No messy cords, no bulky equipment. Just a cute and clean, easy-to-use contraption filled with picture-taking magic. Here are a couple of behind-the-scenes pictures and a fun mini-clip from our Instagram feed that will help you to get a better idea of what The Smile Lab looks like and how it operates.

Be sure to read the BOOTH REQUIREMENTS at the bottom of this page to find out what we need to set The Smile Lab up at your event.
Here are the backdrops we currently have in stock which are ready for setup at your event. Have something else in mind? Stripes? Polka dots? Something to match your party’s theme or colors? Contact us for custom options!
Photo Strip Layout Options
We offer three photo strip layouts:
ONE PLUS THREE Layout: a 4×6 printout featuring your four poses
SINGLE SNAP Layout: a single pose printed as a 4×6 photo
DOUBLE STRIP Layout: two identical 2×6 strips showing your four poses in a vertical layout.
Our photos feature your custom logo, graphic, or text, as well as a printed background like those shown below, designed to match your party’s colors or theme.
Operation of The Smile Lab requires the following:
The booth requires a physical space measuring at least 10 feet by 10 feet. The booth and prop table must be covered and protected from the weather, either by a tent or roof, with mid- to low-level lighting for night-time events. (We can provide a tent and our own lighting if needed.) It works well if the booth is setup on level ground and our backdrop frame can be set against a wall. We need close proximity or reasonable access to a power outlet.
We require at least 90 minutes for setup and testing. Earlier access to your party site is always better.
We can customize your photos with text, logos, background designs, and colors! After your booking has been confirmed via our online booking request, we will ask you to complete our event questionnaire, below. This questionnaire allows us to plan for your party, and we ask that you complete it and submit at least one week prior to the event date.
