Q & A
IF MY EVENT IS INSIDE, DOES THE PHOTO BUS HAVE TO STAY OUTSIDE?
Not always! The Photo Bus is 72" wide and 82" tall, 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 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 El Paso 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 and our Instagram. 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?
All of our packages include printing unlimited 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 their 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. If you don't want them posted, thats fine too :)
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.

WHAT YEAR IS THE PHOTO BUS?
Our VW Photo Booth, The Photo Bus, was born in 1970. We were established as a company in 2012 in Kansas City and expanded to St. Louis and Dallas in 2014.
WHERE DID YOU GET THE BUS?
We discovered this bus in Kansas City, Missouri and brought it back to El Paso for restoration.
DO YOU TRAVEL?
The Photo Bus travels to El Paso area events at no additional cost. If you're curious about having this unique photo booth at your event outside of EP, contact us and we'll see what we can do! We also have The Photo Bus KC (our parent company in Kansas CIty) and The Photo Bus STL (our sister company in St. Louis) and The Photo Bus Dallas (our sister company in Dallas, TX)
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 which is owned by our new friend John DePrisco. John came up with it as he was looking to market his wedding photography business. We saw a photo on Pinterest of The Photo Bus KC at a wedding and immediately fell in love with the idea. We decided to bring this to El Paso so in June of 2015 we took a road trip to Kansas City to get Dorothy (that's what we named our VW Bus). While we were in Kansas City we saw what a success it was and how people loved the experience. We started working with John from that moment to bring this concept to El Paso.
