Videography & Photo Booth Services by Burleson Productions' Grab a Prop and Smile Photo Booth

4.9 (36)
We have been doing photo booth rentals for quite a few years now and we have learned a great deal from our customers. It not about us because you, our valued customers, are entitled to what you want, not just what we have. So, in our endeavor to provide the best services in Southern Arizona we listened when you requested and in most cases, we added your desires under our one price umbrella.
One of the most asked question is how many prints do we get? We discovered that most times a photo booth provider gives two prints per shoot and sells a customer additional photos. What about the other three friends in a five-person shoot? Do they just get to look at yours? Not with us because everyone gets a print and we’ll even give you an extra if you ask nicely. In fact, we will email your print to you, post it to your favorite social media site, you can go to our sharing site and download prints, and we will give you a flash-drive with all the photos taken during the event.
What about colors and photo booth styles and template choice…most time we will have the colors to fit your groups color scheme. Check out our U of A colored booths - both open and enclosed. Got a pirate theme, we can do a green screen and put you right on the pirate ship of even in a dungeon.
You want a postcard template or 4 up strips or 3 up strips and even a single portrait…we got you covered. Inside or outside booths…we got you covered and the neat thing about all of this is there are no up-charges. You pay the rental fee and local and state sales tax. One single price for your entire event.
We are profession as well and we come equipment to handle any equipment or issues. Check out our reviews. We make people happy…we hope. Try us out and I’ll bet you want us to come back!

I love making people smile and providing a fun time for all! Grab a Prop and Smile is more than just a Photo's the hit of any event because we make it fun!

    Ed was outstanding. Best customer service! I purchased this photo booth as a gift for my friend’s wedding! I live in Chicago, and Ed was excellent with coordinating all the details with the bride and groom! The photo booth was set up early at the venue, and then there were two attendants during the event! Ed made sure everything was set up, and the processes were super easy! Thank you, Ed and your Team! I would recommend them to anyone in Tucson who is looking for a photo booth!

He was very accommodating and even extended his time for us when scheduling issues that evening for our event went a little awry. Thank you Ed for your great service! and Fun !! I would recommend this service to others who want to add some fun to their event- ours was a 40th H.S. Reunion.. and yes... we 58 year olds had a blast with the photo booth!!

    I heard from many people it was the best photo booth they had ever been in. I'm disappointed that I never got to go in myself. Definately worth the money.

    He was rude to my guests and had a terrible attitude! I've hired other photo booths in the past and had a great experience, but not this time. Very disappointed. The event was a Sweet 16 for my daughter . I A break down of the guest and their ages was provided. There was no mention of any "baby sitting policy" or lack of tolerance for children. The kids and adults complained about the unfriendly attitude. I would like to request a refund, especially since feedback is not taken well and only escalates the attitude and unfriendliness. I can only compare what I've seen from the last photo booth (for a one year old's party). This event had many more young kids (excitedly using the props and taking pics). Those guests had fun and the reason we wanted a photo booth! I'm sorry too, since I missed my daughter's dance with her dad to deal with the complaints. :(

    Ed Burleson of Burleson Productions went above and beyond what I expected in providing a photo experience for 60 guests at a dinner I hosted at the Hacienda del Sol Guest Ranch Resort in Tucson celebrating my husband's birthday on January 1, 2017. Ed and his wife/ assistant, Camelia, actively involved me in choosing every detail that would bring a festive yet professional feel to the social hour photography session prior to dinner. The guests were delighted by the friendly experience, as everyone was able to have their pictures taken with the 'birthday boy' and had a few moments to chat with him during the photo op. The open booth photo experience was integral to the success of a perfect evening! Every guest came away with photo mementos to share with family and friends upon their return home. I heartily recommend Burleson Productions for anyone or any group putting on a special celebration or party! Having real pictures in hand is so meaningful. (I appreciated that people didn't need to have their cell phones out and were able to make it all about the conversation of the evening.) I'm grateful!

    Working with Ed Burleson of Burleson Productions' to meet and exceed the photography goals I had for the birthday dinner celebration and event orchestrated at the Hacienda del Sol in Tucson, was beyond my expectations. Ed and his gracious wife and assistant, Camelia, encouraged my participation each step of the way in getting ready for the open-booth session in which guests were photographed with the "birthday boy," who happened to be celebrating his 90th birthday. Many guests came from around the U.S. to help celebrate. Everyone walked away with custom-designed cards with a picture of themselves and my husband. Happy 90th Birthday! Happy New Year! Tucson, Arizona 2017 Guests have written me about the evening and everyone was happy with their memento. Many noted that their moments with my husband while having the photographs taken were precious. I am very grateful for the entire experience and heartily recommend Burleson Productions customized service for family and professional events.

    We rented a photo booth to have during our wedding reception. The booth was a hit with all of the guests and everyone enjoyed their pictures. It was great to get a printed picture right on the spot and I love that I got a digital copy of all of them. Ed was a pleasure to work with and produced a great product and great service. He is very accommodating. I will definitely use again. Thank you.

    I actually cancelled his services due to personal reason. He stated that he would give me back my deposit if another event was scheduled on that day, which there was, according to Edward. To this day (November 7, 2016) I still have not received my deposit back. I called and emailed him to no avail. When I first contacted Burleson Productions, Mr. Burleson was very professional, and honest and very reasonable cost wise. If I'm ever in need of a photo booth in the near future, I will be contacting Burleson Productions. Annette Duarte Tucson, Arizona

    I would highly recommend using Ed Burleson for your next party or event. The Tucson Jazz Institute's Parent Group hired him for our Valentine's Day Big Band Swing Dinner Dance last Friday. Mr. Burleson went above and beyond to meet our needs and make sure everyone had a great time. We entertained over 100 guests that evening and his photo booth was quite the hit. He has tons of fun props and the pictures he provides are of the highest quality. He even created a unique and fun photo postcard for each group. It was a pleasure working with Mr. Burleson and we hope to use him many more times in the future! I would definitely call him for your next event, large or small! Thank you Ed!

What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
There is nothing complicated about our pricing of Photo Booths...we will beat any verified price quote. We don't have up-charges or travel charges. Everything is included in one price!
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Identify their needs and then put together a rental package that fits their needs and budget.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have degrees in Bio-Medical/Electrical Engineering and English as well as years of experience in the entertainment/event industry. My personal goal is to learn something new everyday about the services I provide and bring that information to better service our customers. My partner is a full time Mathematics teacher at TUSD. We both possess Level 1 fingerprint clearance cards.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I was a former manager of the ASU Event Services Media Department and provided all types of services from events of a few people to events that wowed and entertained thousands of people. These events ranged from private parties to wedding to entertaining the current President.

Since our beginning, we have served clients from the 355th Communications Squadron to the grand opening of OrangeTheory Fitness to Jovianna's Quinceanera and more...
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Ask if you have choices or are you stuck with one background and one type of set up? We offer many backgrounds, green screen, open and enclosed booths. Also, ask if they print ink jet prints or use a dye sublimation professional printer. Dye sublimation prints are bright beautiful and last many many years as opposed to ink jet prints that fad.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
1. How long will you need the booth to cover your guess list? 2. Can I choose my booth style and colors? 3. Do you offer green screen? 4. How many attendants come with the booth?
