If my event is inside, does The Photo Bus have to stay outside?
Not always! We are The Photo Bus is 68" wide, so as long as we can fit in the door and get permission from the venue, we will be there!
How much space do you need?
We need at least 69" of space to get our photo booth in a VW bus in your venue, and we ask for about a 10'x20' space when we're all up and running.
Can you drive The Photo Bus?
Yes! We always drive The Photo Bus to events, but we usually push it into the venue.
May we come see the Photo Bus prior to an event?
We do our best to attend as many local St Louis events as we can so you can experience our photo booth for yourself. You can find all of our public events on our Facebook page. If you are unable to go to one of the events, we would be happy to arrange a time to show you!
Do you print on-site?
Of course we print photos on-site, and at no additional cost! What's even better is each person who takes their picture in our photo booth gets a copy of the customized photo.
Do you post the images to Facebook?
Yes, we always post the images to Facebook so you - and your guests!- can have them for personal use.
Can you personalize the prints?
We always have The Photo Bus logo on the bottom of prints, but we will also personalize it for your event, whether it's a wedding, birthday party, fundraiser, or just because! We are all about creating memories, so we are so happy to work with you to help people remember each event.
Can I change the background color?
Do you have a theme for your event? No problem! We will work with you to do our best to match our photo booth background with your theme. Just make sure you mention it before the event! We have a selection of backgrounds to choose from so you might find one you need without having to customize one.
How much does it cost to rent your mobile photo booth?
Our rates depend on the day book but they start at $650. We also book birthday, graduation, holiday parties and corporate events! Contact us for more pricing info!
What year is The Photo Bus?
Our VW Photo Booth, The Photo Bus, was born in 1974. We were established as a company in 2012 in Kansas City and expanded to St Louis in 2014.
Where did you get the bus?
We bought The Photo Bus right here in St Louis!
Can you set up a normal photo booth?
We really love bringing our bus to your event but we understand it doesn't fit in all locations. We offer a Open air booth that is just as fun.
Do you travel?
The Photo Bus travels to St Louis area events at no additional cost, unless it is over 30 miles outside the STL area. If you're curious about having this unique photo booth at your event outside of STL, contact us and we'll see what we can do! We also have The Photo Bus KC (our parent company in Kansas City) along with Dallas, El Paso, Cincinnati, Austin, Denver, Portland, Oahu, and Atlanta (our sister companies).
Where did you get the idea to put a photo booth in a VW bus?
The idea for The Photo Bus came from our parent company, The Photo Bus KC. John DePrisco came up with it as he was looking to market his wedding photography business, and as soon as we saw it we fell in love with the idea. He was hesitant to let us help him expand the business to St Louis for the first 18 months of business, but he finally said yes and we are so excited. We love how so many people have Volkswagen stories and we love bringing it to events in St Louis.
