The Hoot Photo Booth is a service of SGI Photography.
The booth can be rented as part of a wedding package, or separately.
An 8 x 10 sq. ft. area is needed for both the booth and tables. Props are sanitized in-between individual usage. Guests take home a souvenir photo booth strip, and you receive a customized album as well as a digital file of the images from your event.
The Hoot Photo Booth is available for weddings, parties and events in the Greater Houston Area, Galveston Island and the Bay Area.
You and your guests will have a hoot with The Hoot Photo Booth!

Absolutely! We offer great rental discounts for schools, churches and non-profits!

Will the booth fit in an elevator? The portable booth will fit in a standard size elevator.
What does the photo booth look like?
The Hoot Photo Booth is a portable 5′ x 5′ unit that is covered in black material. The backdrop to the booth can be customized for your event with your choice of available material. Please call for details.
Does the booth need to be plugged in? Access to a standard 110v outlet within 25′ of the booth is required.
How many people fit into a photo booth? The size of our booth allows between 1 and 5 people in the photo booth at one time!
How does the booth work? Guests will have a blast selecting from the provided props prior to entering the booth. Once guests are situated inside the booth, the series of instructions as well as four photos will begin automatically, about 5 seconds apart. As the guests exit the booth and remove their props, they will have their photo strips in just a few seconds. They will have the option to either keep both photo strips, or to keep one strip and leave one in the scrapbook for the host. Shortly after your event, a digital copy of the photo booth images (as well as the album) will be delivered to the host.
Can the photo booth be setup outside? If there is shelter provided such as a tent or cover as well as an electrical outlet, the booth can be set up outdoors. However in inclement weather, the booth cannot operate. Your rental fee will be pro-rated due to bad weather.
Can I customize the photo strips? The bottom footer of the photo strip can be customized with your event name/date. Our website or photo booth name will be included.
Do you charge a travel fee? We are based in League City, but serve Friendswood, Pearland, Clear Lake, Kemah, Seabrook, Alvin, Galveston, Houston, and everywhere in-between! Events outside of the Galveston Bay Area, or Greater Houston Area will be considered, however, reasonable fees may apply.

Can I have a copy of all the photo booth images from my event? Your package includes one CD or flash drive of your events photo booth images.
Will the booth print out images on the spot? Your high quality digital photo booth images will be printed within a few seconds on professional photo paper.
Does the photo booth have a monitor outside for others to watch?
Part of the fun of a real photo booth is that element of ‘privacy’ in the booth. We no longer place a monitor outside of our booth.
Will there be someone at my event available to maintain the photo booth?
At least 2 attendants will be on hand to assist and monitor the booth. Any behavior in the booth deemed inappropriate by the attendants will be stopped. Further problems will result in closing the booth without refund.
Do you sub-contract out to other photo booth companies?
When you rent The Hoot Photo Booth, you get the owners of the company and/or their assistants.
Are props provided? Yes, we bring dozens of props for every event. This includes colored hats, boas, signs, etc. If you have a particular theme (western, tropical, etc.) please communicate this with us! We are always adding new prop sets!
Can we supply our own props?
Sure! We encourage you to bring along any special props that your guests may enjoy taking pictures with. Keep in mind, that damage to props may occur, even as careful as everyone tries to be.
