RACHEL AND MARK TIE THE KNOT WITH THE FISHES

RACHEL AND MARK TIE THE KNOT WITH THE FISHES

Perched on the rocky cliffs on the far west side of Santa Cruz, CA, there's a research and education facility called Long Marine Lab. The lab serves as the field base for researchers doing very important oceanographic research. Stuff like marine mammal physiology and ecology. And marine invertebrate ecology. And ocean toxicology research. And adjacent to the lab is the one of our favorite wedding venues!

It's called Seymour Marine Discovery Center. It's an exhibit hall with everything from shark "touch tanks", to huge aquariums with rockfish, eels, decorator crabs, and jellyfish.

After Rachel and Mark said their vows (on the huge outdoor deck overlooking the beautiful Monterey Bay!), the party moved inside. Rachel and Mark's friends and family floated through the exhibit hall, enjoying the huge saltwater tanks teeming with ocean wildlife.

And we tucked our Infinite photobooth into one corner of the exhibit hall to help document the evening.

Guests were treated to a custom 4x6 print with ocean themed artwork. We're huge fans of larger prints, like 4x6 and 5x7!

WHY WE DON'T LIST PRICES ON OUR WEBSITE

WHY DON'T WE LIST PRICES ON OUR WEBSITE?

This is a very touchy subject in the photobooth industry, and nobody we've ever met is in the grey area on it.

Whether we're talking with fellow photoboothers or potential clients, everyone has a firm opinion on why pricing should, or shouldn't, be listed on a photobooth website.

Here's why we don't list pricing on our website. And the good news for clients is that it ultimately benefits them!

REASON #1: We don't want to scare off potential clients!

We don't want to scare of potential clients who see a high priced package, and may not completely understand why it's so high-priced, and just write us off thinking we're too expensive.

For example, let's pretend that a potential client is looking at our website, planning a relatively small house party.  A simple photobooth experience with prints and no social media sharing may meet their needs perfectly. But if they see pricing for a big corporate event - like green screen animated GIFs with three social media sharing stations and an external monitor to run a separate slideshow - they could easily (and incorrectly) think that Rebel Photobooth is too expensive for their intimate house party. 

REASON #2: It's Economics 101, baby!

Ready for a (not so) secret? Did you know that hotels and venues charge higher prices for their spaces on Saturday nights? And the second most for Friday nights? And the third most for Sunday? It's basic supply and demand - higher demand on the weekends means higher prices on the weekends.

We guarantee that if you book their space on a Tuesday at noon, when demand for the space is lower, you're going to pay less than you would on the weekend. 

We like having the same flexibility! We're happiest when we're boothing every day of the week, not just on weekend nights. And by NOT listing pricing on our website, we give ourselves the flexibility to give clients a lower price for those days that we're not typically busy.
