How does an As You Wish by Cathy (AYW)

“Open Air – Studio Style” Photo Booth work?

An AYW "Open Air – Studio Style” booth is simple.  We are not a kiosk.

 You step in front of the backdrop and you get ready to pose.

The photographer will snap your pictures when you are ready. 

Totally hands free and eyes open! 

You can see yourself on the screen before your next photo is taken.

Plenty of time to change props and get set for your next pose.

Unlimited photo sessions at the event and a printed copy for

everyone in the photo.

What if I want copies of the photos?

Anyone can visit the As You Wish by Cathy “Photo Gallery” section

of this site to view and download all the pictures of your event FREE.

If you do not want your photos to be viewed by the public,

a password protect gallery is available.

The password will be given to you and your guests during your event.

A USB drive of every picture that was snapped during your event

is available for an additional cost.


Can I provide my own scrapbook?

Yes, however you will also need to supply scissors, pens and adhesive.

Also, if you provide your own scrapbook our attendant takes no

responsibility for creation of the book. We only provide this

service if you pay for the scrapbook upgrade.

Absolutely not! There are unlimited photo sessions.

at the event and a printed copy for everyone in the photo.

What is the standard number of hours for

renting the photo booth?

AYW minimum is 3 hours however, we can provide our services for any additional length of time you would like.

Does the photo booth print photos on the spot like

the ones in the mall or the fair?

They are BETTER!  We only use high quality DNP sublimation printers,

which are much faster and AYW has multiple formats to choose from. 

Also, every photo that comes from one of our booth dries instantly and

will not smear or be damaged by water.

Do you have any suggestions on how to make sure my guests

take full advantage of the photo booth?

Based on experience, we would suggest you let your guests know

where the booth is located and that it is available to them at no cost.
Easy and creative ways to do this are:
  Provide a note at the place setting
Be sure to remind all your guests to use the photobooth and to

   leave you a message next to their picture within the scrapbook if

you have one.  

 MC or DJ announcements are helpful.

Is it possible to brand the booth for my event?

We can provide a large visible logo, tag line, names etc. on

the photo template. This requires a three-week advance notice.

Can you accommodate an outdoor event?

Yes, provided that the booth has access to power and is fully

covered from the elements (i.e., rain, wind, snow, and full sun).

An AYW canopy is available at an

additional charge if outdoor area is not covered.
