How to Setup a T-12 Open Air Photo Booth

Our T-12 Open Air Photo Booth is one of our most popular add-ons for Oregon weddings. Here at DJ Cutt Entertainment, we use this photo booth to engage guests and create a fun and memorable experience. Let’s take a look at how the photo booth works and what you need to know before deciding to have one at your wedding or other event. While it’s relatively easy to set up our photo booth and backdrop, there are a lot of different moving parts. We’ve also customized a lot of features to make it work even better for wedding receptions.

The very first thing you need to start with is forming an organizing committee to make all the financial and design choices for the school function. This committee is usually part of the student council, and these tasks help them learn to handle real life planning events. When it comes to these dances it’s important to pick out a committee that you feel is responsible and can make the right decisions to represent the overall student body.

You will immediately notice that the whole case fits very tightly. Everything has a specific way that it goes in and comes out. Every space cut out of the foam has components that are meant to fit inside specifically. This style case has pick and pluck foam so that way you can customize it to fit your needs.

In the case we keep all the knobs and extra cords that are required to assemble the booth. There is a base, two columns, a head bracket, and head that all screw together to complete the photo booth. The photo booth head and the 2 columns fit snug inside the case. Down below is the bracket to hold the T12 photo booth head. This is the last bracket that goes into the case because it is a tight snug fit.

Once you have pulled all the components out of the case you will need to begin assembly. The first step is to attach the base to the bottom column. It’s very important to figure out what direction the photo booth is going to be facing because the bottom hole has cut outs for the cord that run out of the back of the booth, not out of the front.

Once the base and the bottom column are put together, you want to begin putting on the top column. Grab two sets of screws to make sure that these are secured together. The bottom column is attached to the floor plate via three screws. Take note that the screws can be kind of tough sometimes. You need to make sure that the columns line up perfectly before you start screwing in the screws. If the screws become stripped then it can become very difficult to keep them tight.

Pro Tip: If you’re using the printer tray so that the printer can sit on the photo booth, you will need to assemble these before putting in the screws in the bottom and middle column.

After the bottom and middle column are assembled, next you start to put together the head bracket. This is a U-shaped bracket that screws into the top of the column. It might be easier to attach the head to the top bracket and then attach it to the top column but this all depends on the person and it really doesn’t matter which order that you assemble it. It’s probably easier to attach the bracket to the head before attaching it to the top of the column, but it’s up to you.

Once all the columns and the T12 have been assembled, the next step is opening the back of the shell and hooking up all the camera cords, turning on the camera, and feeding the cords through the holes into their specific places.

Why Your Next Event Needs A Photo Booth

You invest significant amounts of time and money in creating a wonderful event, but then it’s over. Afterwards, it might feel like much of that effort was wasted, unless you do a great job of documenting all the fun. That’s where a professional photo booth comes in. Photo booths have become a very common site at weddings of all types and sizes, but plenty of other events can benefit from having one as well. From corporate parties and trade shows to school dances and birthday parties, photo booths create instant memories that will be cherished forever, while ensuring your guests or potential customers will associate you with a successful event. Best of all, photo booths are typically much cheaper than hiring a professional event photographer, while making it easy for people to go home with plenty of pictures. Let’s take a look at what a photo booth is and why your event can benefit from having one.

At DJ Cutt Entertainment, we manage so many different kinds of events in the Pacific Northwest, that we’ve had to streamline the various gear set ups according to the needs of the specific event. An indoor wedding will have very different requirements than an outdoor wedding, for instance. A dance party will require lighting, sound, and other visuals that are completely unlike what you need for a wedding or funeral ceremony. The following is a comprehensive overview of the various set ups we typically provide for our event clients, making it easy to understand what is involved with set ups and takedowns. Normally, this will be handled by our experienced on site staff, but we make this information available for anyone who might benefit from it.
