"We needed a event photographer for our 40th anniversary celebration. It was held at South Coast Winery & Resort in Temecula, Ca. The event was four hours. Landi Maduro and her team worked with our daughter to capture this special event for our family and friends. What impressed me about Landi and her team was that they were on time, very professional, but what made our day was the "personal touch" in how they went about capturing this special time for us. The quality of their work is just awesome. The extra added feature and quite the hit with our family and guests was the "Photo Booth". The pictures were developed instantly and was a nice little memento gift from us for our guests. There isn't anything I could think of that wasn't already fulfilled from our experience with Bluechild Entertainment. We would most definitely recommend and hire Landi and her team again. Thank-you Debbie Williams Poway, Ca "

"Had a party last week for my daughter's wedding celebration. We had a few choices on who to hire for a photo booth and we couldn't have make a better choice!!! From the moment we got a price quote (very reasonable btw) I could tell Jack went way above and beyond your average owner/operator. He instantly (yet patiently) learned what we had in mind and got a feel of the party so he could bring what suited us best, His personality and charm (yet staying very professional) added a huge amount of fun to the photo booth and honestly it was the hit of the party. Everyone went up multiple times to have some photo fun and he (and the booth) made the party extra memorable. The quality of the photos are remarkable (not dull or drab like some) and you have many options to choose from (colors, props, print, email, etc...). Definitely a 5 star company and I'll be referring Main Stage Photo Booth to EVERYONE I know. Trust me people!!! This is the one for you!!!!!!! (And honestly, while Jack has so many props, it's not always about finding the right one. It's about connecting with party people and loved ones. Siblings you haven't seen in over a year, or roommates who are going to be going their separate ways, or kids and parents who just want that perfect shot to remember a really fun night of togetherness. Jack facilitates every one of those memories with professionalism and charisma and keeps the guests coming back for more)!"

"Thank you Crown Mobile Entertainment for making our Fundraiser a success. Originally we were just looking for Photo Booth service for our Fundraiser. We realized at the last minute that we were going to need a PA system. After speaking with Sean he convinced us to do a fundraiser/party which would include the PA system we needed. Well it turned out to be a great idea. After we raised the money needed we were available to celebrate. Dj service was awesome to say the least and we danced the night away. Photo Booth was best I have ever seen and pictures were spectacular. Thanks again everyone at Crown Mobile Entertainment for making our Fundraiser an enjoyable event. We definitely recommend everyone to hire them. You won't be disappointed."

"I got married Feb 2017 at Scripps Seaside Forum. I met Kimberley and Belinda at a bridal bazaar and I knew that photo booth was the most important vendor I was looking for that day. They have the best product on the market! My wedding theme was geodes and they picked a beautiful silver sequin backdrop and they found a gorgeous blue marble geode pattern for my photos. They also brought a great turquoise/gold photo book for my guests to write messages for us. They also had AWESOME props. None of that cheesy typical photo booth props. They had beautiful masks and animal masks even my guests commented they loved the props. I also ordered their giffy booth and my guests were OBSESSED with that. It was a great activity for guests to participate in during the cocktail hour. I would definitely recommend them!"

Great communication before the party, custom design photo strips, they came early, were very professional (but super nice and friendly to everyone), the photos came out great! All the guests were impressed and loved getting a little funny photo strip to take home. I would recommend Elle and her team to anyone! A+ service! Thanks Elle!!"

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 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.
