  • What is Prime Photo Booth?

    Prime Photo Booth is a high-tech, hip, and modern open air photo booth company based in San Diego, Ca.
    Unlike a traditional enclosed claustrophobic photo booth, Prime Photo Booth has a wall-sized backdrop which can fit HUGE groups people all in one shot.
    We are rapidly becoming the premiere photo booth choice for; weddings, events, parties, corporate, and more!
  • What is an “Open Air” Photo Booth?

    Our booth is an open-air interactive environment, not a box. , the "booth" is actually not a booth at all. The booth is completely open, allowing for up to 20 people to fit in front of our 10-foot wide backdrop. If you compare our images to a box-style booth, pay attention to the light quality in the images. More often than not, you'll notice that the light in box-style booths is less flattering due to the hard shadows and contrast you get from small, direct light sources.
    There's no fixed space to crawl into and no walls obscuring the fun. People in the party can see all the antics and you can see their reactions as they're watching you. It's a much more fun and dynamic way to get your picture taken, and it makes the Prime Photo Booth an interactive destination for the whole party.
