I hired Moments to Memories for my daughters' 16th birthday party on 10/3. I really appreciate everything included in my package! They sent email communications, that help me provide any details related to the personal touch of the event! My daughters' name and date was on each picture and everyone loved the immediate picture strip they received. My package also included a memory stick and a beautiful keepsake book, that my daughter will have forever. Anglea and her staff were excellent in providing service, that more than exceeded my expectations! I appreciate all that they did, to help make the evening "Special" to her and All Her friends!! I will definitely hire them again! Yvonne

Ani was right on time when she showed up at my sons 1st birthday party! I had about 250 guests and at least 45-50 kids that day and I was so impressed with how patient and amazing she was with everybody specially with the kids. She was a total hit. Everyone really liked her and her designs. A lot of my family and friends had asked me about her services and I made sure to give them her business card.

My party guests' reactions to Marshall Magoon's Magic Show: "Wow!" "Amazing!" "Fun!" "Great Act!""Where did you find him? " ... My family hired Marshall for my daughter's 5th birthday celebration. Everyone from ages 1 to 50+ enjoyed his performance. Communicating with Marshall was a breeze and he was responsive. Marshall provided suggestions on what would work for the age group of the party attendees and his rates were reasonable. Marshall was also punctual and organized. He established a good rapport with the party goers and was able to manage a group of excited children ages 1-11. I would definitely recommend Marshall for events for children and adults. The older guests were also mesmerized and had some good laughs. You will not be disappointed in hiring the amazing Marshall Magoon as your magician! Thank you Marshall for a memorable birthday for my daughter!

This was a fantastic addition to our party. Guests could take pictures at their leisure, then the booth printed 2 copies. The owner of the booth was very easy to work with, and required no extra work to booked them. I would highly recommend doing a photo booth at your birthday too!

My experience working with Mr. Cotaco was absolutely perfect!! He was punctual, very friendly, and made everyone at the party feel special while taking their photos! The props and photo booth were professional yet fun looking and taking pictures was so simple, my little nephews and neices were able to take as many photos as they pleased on their own and if they needed help, Paul was there to assist them! I also enjoyed the whole ambiance of the photo booth. The music in the background just made it a party all by itself, I could tell that many of our guests spent a good amount of time at the photo booth! The pics came out fast and very nice! I would definitely hire them for my future events and highly reccomend them to all my family and friends!! To top it all off, he provides a portable memory card that has all the photos taken at the party for the celebrants memorable keepsake!! I would rate pixcbooth at 11 out of 10!!

I rented Selfie Booth for my twins birthday and LOVED it! The machine is so sleek that it fit perfectly at the party without being in the way at all. Everyone was taking pictures and being creative and the kids all thought it was a "magic machine". Along with party favors everyone got to take their fun pictures home with them. It was truly such a great idea!

I see DNE spin at the Social Study in SF pretty regularly and he's done the photobooth at several events for my work. The photobooth is excellent and really gets everyone in a festive mood. People at the party are super psyched to get a photo as a souvenir and everyone wants to get a photo with their group of friends at some point. The music always provides a great mood for the night and Evan has a great feel for the crowd, knowing when to keep it mellow or when people want to get moving. My buddy had DNE play at his Halloween party last year and they kept the dance floor packed till late night! From old-school hip hop to whatever the kids are listening to these days. Good times when DNE is in charge. Highly recommended.

Caroline's band Citizens Jazz were phenomenal! We had them play at our company event and they really blew us all away. Good mix of styles that could accommodate a quieter dinner as well as an upbeat cocktail party. The musicians were extremely talented and even played a few requests! I definitely recommend them and will definitely be hiring them again!

I hired Mementostrip for a company party over the weekend in Santa Cruz. ALL of my fellow employees were very pleased with the service provided, and the photobooth added the FUN to my event! From my initial inquiry, to background format set-up, to night of the event, Bao, Joe and Marissa were very professional and supportive. I had zero worries about this vendor and I WILL use Mementostrip again for sure, 110% ! THANK YOU to the entire Mementostrip team! Chris- Santa Cruz, CA

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What does a fortune teller do?

A fortune teller offers insight into people’s past, present and future through private readings. Some fortune tellers read palms or use tarot cards, runes, or tea leaves to see into a client’s future. Other fortune tellers consider themselves psychics, numerologists and mystics who look for patterns and meaning in seemingly random events, such as stirred tea leaves or the draw of a tarot card. By interpreting what they see in the cards or leaves, fortune tellers answer their clients’ questions about their lives, such as who or when they’ll marry, whether they should quit their job, or whether they should have a baby. Tarot card readings are a particularly popular way of having your future told, because they’re such a familiar method of fortune telling. More importantly, you can guide a tarot reading by asking the specific questions that are most important to you. By interpreting the cards you’ve drawn, the fortune teller may give you new insight into yourself and help you make an important decision. For some people, fortune tellers are simply amusing, but for others, they offer helpful guidance and spiritual nourishment.  

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.

What is a mariachi band?

Mariachi bands are rooted in Mexican culture. Traditional mariachi bands consisted of two or more members playing stringed instruments, wearing regional costumes adapted from the charro (Mexican horseman or cowboy). Modern mariachi bands, which are likely what you’re looking for when searching for a mariachi band for hire, feature at least four members who play stringed instruments (violin, vihuela, bass guitar called guitarron) and one or more trumpets. The costumes have remained the same, but now trumpets are synonymous with mariachi music. Mariachi bands for hire often play a wide range of music, including styles originating from Mexico and adopted from elsewhere. These include jarabes, waltzes, serenades, corridos (Mexican ballads), ranchera, cumbia, and more. Mariachi bands for hire bring a festive and soulful element to a party, birthday, wedding, corporate affair, fundraiser or community event. UNESCO has inscribed mariachi music on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.

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.
  • Weekend packages: $450-$700, depending on features included and length of rental.
  • Additional hours: $100-$150 per extra hour.
  • Add-on features:
    • Photo guest album services: $75.
    • Personalized photo strips: $30-$50.
    • Custom photo backdrops or vinyl skin branding of the booth: $150-$300.
    • Live social media connectivity (ability to share photos to social media accounts): $100-$250.

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.
