If you do not agree with these Terms of Service, you can opt to leave our website and opt not to use our photo booth rental and/or party portrait services. Party Pix Hawaii, LLC is owned and operated to provide photo booth rentals and party portrait services for events primarily on the island of Oahu, Hawaii. Party Pix Hawaii, LLC reserves the right to revise the Terms and Conditions at any time, and without prior notice. The term “PPH” in these and any statements, both on this disclosure, the website, signs, shows, etc., refers to the owners, agents, affiliates, representatives, equipment, property, services, and/or photo booths of Party Pix Hawaii, LLC.

Photo Booth Rental and/or Party Portrait Service Reservations All photo booth rentals and party portrait services are booked by requesting, completing, and returning a signed contract that is accompanied by the required non-refundable retainer fee. The retainer fee for Photo Booth rentals is $300-$400 (depending on your chosen package). The retainer fee for all other PPH and/or Multi-Service packaged services is 50% of full payment OR another predetermined amount decided by PPH during the creation of the agreement. The retainer must be made by a date, predetermined by PPH, which is entered on the service agreement prior to sending (by mail, email, and/or fax) to the recipient. Unless otherwise agreed upon, all parties involved in the contractual arrangements will only receive photo booth and/or party portrait services from PPH when all criteria above are completed. The completion of the reservation process is finalized when the purchaser receives a confirmation email from PPH. PPH reserves the right to deny, void, or disclaim any contract to any customer, for any reasonable reason determined by PPH. All photo booth rentals and party portrait services are based on a first-come, first-serve basis. Therefore, completing all of the criteria may not and does not guarantee a booking. If another party completes the process, and is within the guidelines of these Terms and Conditions, and the date was previously or presently offered, and no date is being held, that party will have just as many rights to PPH services for that specific date as any other party. Any PPH services “down-time” where the our equipment is set-up or kept from being torn down (when the host(s) chooses to rent a booth for a shorter period of time than the event), will be billed at $75 per hour. By signing the “Service Agreement”, any and all parties, agree not to hold PPH liable for any monetary or civil damages, costs, expenses, or such, including legal fees, attorney fees, etc., for any monetary amount greater than the balance already paid.
It is agreed that as full compensation for services provided by PPH, as stated on the service agreement and invoice, the purchaser will pay the *full payment amount. Any outstanding balance due must be paid in full by the pre-determined due date entered on the service agreement. PPH reserves the right to deny services to any party who does not fulfill their obligation in making a timely payment, in full, by the agreed upon due date, without expressed written permission from PPH. Any outstanding balance remaining after the due date listed on the contract is subject to a $50 late fee. In addition, any costs that PPH incurs due to the processing of the outstanding balance (i.e. any legal fees, collection costs, etc.) will be added to the party’s outstanding balance. PPH accepts payment by cash, check, or credit card payment. All credit card transactions will incur an additional transaction fee of 3.5%. Any deviation from the specific terms of the service agreement and those on this by the Purchaser shall constitute a breach of this entire agreement. PLEASE NOTE: Any return check fee will incur a $50 service charge.
Non-traditional event days and Holidays Due to the nature of our business our traditional workdays are on Friday-Sunday; Therefore, reservations made on Monday-Thursday is considered non-traditional and will be assessed the special-day fee of $200. Events scheduled on holidays may be charged up to 2x the normal rates.

Cancellations All cancellations must be in writing to PPH by purchaser no later then one-month prior to event date. Doing so relieves the purchaser from the responsibility of paying the full payment amount minus the non-refundable retainer fee. If the purchaser cancels within the one-month period prior to the event, the purchaser is responsible to the remaining balance in full.
Event date can be rescheduled within one calendar year from the original event date. A $100 rescheduling fee will apply. PPH reserves the right at their discretion to provide a partial refund to the purchaser if we are able to make a reservation of equal or greater dollar value on the event date stated on the service agreement. To receive a refund, (1) we must be completely booked with no remaining photo booths or party portrait services available for that date, (2) contacted by the purchaser in writing with notice of cancellation no later than one month prior to event date (3) contacted by the purchaser in writing no later than one week after the cancelled event date to request new event date.
Performing of services – request for additional time or services PPH photo booth services are performed based on the agreed upon time period at the time of reservation. Additional time may be added at $200 per hour (advanced notice). Additional request for time made on the day of the event will be based on availability of the booth, which PPH staff will determine. Same day request will require a fee of $250 per hour and require a cash payment prior to start of additional hour.
Customized Photos / Backdrops / Photo Albums / Wraps If your specific service includes a customized photo layout PPH will customize photo designs based on the information provided to us by
in the above agreement. It is the responsibility of the purchaser to provide the design information a minimum of one-month prior to your event. Services such as premium photo albums, step-and-repeat (red carpet) walls, media walls, and wraps require a two-month lead- time due to longer production times (standard photo albums are excluded). The purchaser will be asked to select a design to be used.
Some PPH services require the use of a backdrop or custom step-and-repeat wall. PPH offers a wide range of backdrops that the purchaser may choose from. However, if the purchaser chooses to have a specific backdrop style or color prior to the design process, they must inform PPH no later than one-month prior to the event. In the case the requested backdrop is unavailable, PPH reserves the right to decide on the background style and/or color which best suits the purchaser’s theme and photo design. *Sample photo designs, backdrops, and photo albums can be viewed at partypixhawaii.com or by clicking on the links provided.
Backdrop sizes for open-air photo booths are 8 ft x 8 ft (step-n-repeat, petals, metallic glitz). White sheets, white petal, and gold petal are 8 ft tall x 10 ft wide. Rose backdrops are 6 ft 8 in. tall by 7 ft. wide. Please inquire if larger backdrop sizes are needed.
It is the responsibility of the customer to observe every detail of each design during their final approval. This includes the double-checking of the text (spelling, date information, etc.). PPH will not be responsible for any errors found within the design once final the customer has made their final approval.
Contingency Plans All services must be conducted in a safe manner. Therefore, all outdoor events must have an indoor contingency plan to protect PPH’s equipment and staff from the elements. If the event is cancelled due to an unsatisfactory contingency, the Purchaser must pay the contract in full.
Set-up and Breakdown PPH will require a minimum of 60 minutes prior to the requested start time to set-up. Breakdown time required is approximately 30-60 minutes after services have been completed. Times listed are only estimates and may be adjusted if necessary; Customer must inform PPH prior to the event.
Any PPH services “down-time” where our equipment is set-up or kept from being torn down (when the host(s) chooses to rent a booth for a shorter period of time than the event), will be billed at $75 per hour.
Equipment and Working Area Requirements In order to properly provide efficient services to our customers, PPH requires the following equipment and working area requirements. These may change without notice and PPH staff servicing the event may require additional equipment or services if they determine it necessary to carryout our services. If the following is unable to be met, the customer must inform PPH one-month prior to the event so proper arrangements can be made. In the case that the event is cancelled due to an unsatisfactory contingency, the Purchaser must pay the contract in full.
Services that require a backdrop such as Green Screen Party Portraits, Multi-Photo Collage, Red Carpet Walls, and Open Air Photo Booths work best in 15 ft x 15 ft squared spaces and must be placed in an area away from wind to prevent the backdrop from tipping.
