For continuation of Gwen’s post-birthday write-up, here’s the photobooth I availed for Gwen’s birthday party. It’s a blessing that Jollibee Shell Macapagal branch allows photobooth in their parties, we just have to pay additional Php 100 for the electricity fee. Some Jollibee branches like the Blue Wave branch does not allow photobooths because of the limited space. So if you’re scouting for Jollibee branches and you want to include photobooths, look for spacious branches.
Most photobooth rates starts at Php 3,500. But my officemate referred me to her org’s photobooth services, FLIPPBooth. Their package is just Php 2,500, unlimited prints for 2 hours.

They came earlier at the venue to set-up. They still don’t have those boxes used by professional photobooths. Their set-up consists of a laptop, printer, DSLR camera and a tripod. It took some time for them to start snapping. And since they do the snapping manually, you have the time to think of wacky poses and positions. They also don’t have a lot of props like colorful wigs, hats, and glasses like other photobooths. I’m not complaining though because those hi-tech thingamajigs and fancy props come with a price too.
I’m not so happy with the prints though… The prints were pixelized, and at that time they’re having issues with the printer. That’s why some guests weren’t able to take photos because they are still fixing and waiting for the earlier photos to be printed.
I don’t know if my guests were just shy to have their pictures taken because we only got less than 50 photos, I felt like it’s not sulit. Anyway, if you have photobooths in your parties, just let the guests maximize the photobooth services. Like I said to my guests at the party, “abusuhin nyo yung photobooth ha =)”…
