Photo booths at parties? They haven’t replaced what we used to have at parties, like say, how DJs largely replaced live bands.
Instead, they’ve become an enjoyable addition to parties. Like Photographers and then videographers.
Not every party wants clowns, magicians, balloon animals, or face paintings, but images of a good time are intrinsic to a party, and the Photo booth niche adds value to the party by increasing the Fun Factor: Like bartenders and caterers.
So I Googled Best Photo Booths in Houston and a website called Thumbtack came up. Thumbtack announces their 10 Best Photo booth Rentals in Houston.
Well I live in Houston, so that’s exactly what I’m looking for. After all, I have some friends and family doing this as a main business or sideline, I’d like to see if they make the cut.
I click the link, the homepage comes up, and then a block box (one of those menu boxes that block you from exploring the site until you answer questions – like a paywall only more cloy and intrusive).
*Before we show you our Top Ten Photo Booths, are you here for (Check One)
*We’re asking you a few questions so we can bring you the right pros.*
*What type of event are you hosting? (Check One)*
*Which of the following best describes your role? (Check One)*
*Is your event indoors or outdoors? *
*What kind of booth do you need?*
*What kind of pictures would you like?*
*Would you like props provided?*
*How many guests are you expecting at your event?*
*How old are your guests?* (5 more choices)
THAT’S IT!*. I refuse to believe that there are so many thousands of Photo booths in Houston that anyone could cull a 300 Best. Moreover, I refuse to believe (and I certainly don’t want to deal with), Photo Booth companies that draw the line over customers who do OR don’t want a backdrop, customers who do OR don’t want props, and customers who may have more OR less than, 100 guests!
In fact, I don’t want to deal with any luxury company that is so uncomfortable with establishing a relationship with a client, that they would use an entity like Thumbtack to have potentials fill out an online-style medical form.
F U THUMBTACK!
