No. Our custom photo booths can be set up just about anywhere. Ideally we would we’d like to be within 50 feet of a power outlet. When we arrive before your event even starts, we will get together with your contact person at your venue and pick the best location. As this is a professional quality classic photo booth, it is rather heavy. All we ask is that you have us on a hard surface.
