"oriented and organized during the planning process he really does a great job and made a huge difference on how well our wedding turned out, his voice and the way he announces just in itself left a real air of good taste and style. He played all the songs we wanted on the list we submitted to him, he is really honest and nice to work with so it was a smart choice to have him as my DJ/EMCEE. Charlie is a real professional and that's exactly what you need from your Dj, it was a small Wedding but it turned out to be great he really made the day. Thanks Gooodness we found Charlie after our first dj cancelled on us just days before the Wedding, THE EMCEEING WAS TOP NOTCH and he really is a pro. The announcements were perfect and he didn't make himself the center of attention, from the moment i talked to Charlie on the phone the first time, i felt really confident that my Ceremony and Reception would run smoothly which it certainly did. He is very responsive to emails and is helpful with all questions/concerns, anytime i had questions and needed to talk to him Charlie was there, he was such a calming force. Reception, oh my gosh, he did s great job reading the crowd playing the right music, interacting with our guests providing the lighting and making the whole night run smoothly. With that, it was a pleasure working with Charlie Dj and Lighting, he worked with us on the playlist as was willing to make some last minute changes and announcements without a pause. Just hire him as a DJ/MC and Lightinh and then just let him do his thing, You won't be sorry!!! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM FOR ANY OCCASION!!! Thank you Charlie and see you soon!!!"

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is a photo booth rental?

A party photo booth is a fun, interactive experience where guests can take a series of photos (usually three or four) that are immediately printed out on a strip as a keepsake. When you rent a party photo booth, the company sets up the booth or photo station at your event; a photographer staffs the booth and coaches guests on how to use it throughout the event. Often the photo booth rental company provides props like silly hats, wigs and glasses. There are different types of party photo booth rentals. An open-air booth has a curtain or backdrop that allows more freedom of movement and enables more people to use it at one time. The traditional enclosed photo booths that you may have seen at the mall or the fair tend to cost more to rent, as they are harder to transport and also cost more for the pros to purchase. The national average cost for party photo booth rentals is $400-$500.

How do you make a wedding photo booth backdrop?

Creative or DIY-savvy couples can make a wedding photo booth backdrop in no time. You can ask your rental company to incorporate a custom backdrop into your rental party photo booth, or do your own custom photo booth with a friend serving as photographer. It’s easiest to make your own backdrop for an open air photo booth, which you can hang on a wall at an indoor reception, or hang from a tree or in a homemade frame at an outdoor reception.

One simple yet glamorous option is a tinsel curtain. Choose silver or gold for classic elegance, or go for a wild color like bright pink. For a more refined look, you can purchase three or four yards of a luxe fabric that fits your wedding color theme. Creative couples may want to get funky and spray-paint or hand-paint designs onto a cotton canvas backdrop. Don’t forget to provide props for your guests; the props are half the fun and encourage guests to get playful for the camera. Paint an oversized picture frame gold (don’t forget to take out the glass!) for your guests to hold up. Provide a chalkboard where they can write cute messages to hold in their photo, and colorful items from your costume box: think hats, wigs, funky sunglasses, and sequined accessories.

How much is it to rent a photo booth for a party?

Renting a party photo booth for your next event will get your guests engaged and provide a take-home favor for attendees. The cost to rent a party photo booth will vary depending on the type of booth, the day and time of year, the length of the rental, and any add-ons you select. The national average cost for party photo booth rentals is $400-$500. Here are some examples of average party photo booth rental costs:

  • Weekday packages: $300-$550, depending on features included and length of rental. A three-hour weekday package for $500 could include guest book, personalized photo strips and DVD of all the photos.
