Excellent experience to arrange to have filming done at an outdoor event. The communication was outstanding and everything was simple to understand. Could not have been any easier.

I was at a wedding and they used Moments To Memories Photo Booth Rentals. It was so much fun. They had a lot of props for us to use and the booth was large enough for us to get a big group in. Angela was so professional and very sweet and very attentive to all of us. I would definately recommend them to anyone!

Tom was extremely personable and professional! He went so far above and beyond that I can't imagine hiring another photographer for my next event. He also delivered a great quality product (gallery) in record time. Thank you for being an awesome addition to a truly special evening!

Sybex Booth is one of the best photo booth vendors I have worked with and I would highly recommend them for any event! Rubens prices are fair and his customer service is five star. He arrived at the event early to set up the booth; he was friendly and professional. He also kept the photo booth running smoothly for the duration of the party. Ruben provided a fantastic selection of props, which is something I think is important. It makes for very funny pictures. You will not be disappointed using Sybex Booth. I plan on using them again and again!!!

Harry provided excellent service all around. He arrived early, his car was spotless and well-stocked, and he did a great job getting us from place to place in some high traffic areas for our brewery hopping event. We look forward to hiring him again.

We hired Just the Little Things Photos for the sophomore cruise we had planned for our students. We chose them because the reviews from other customers were great and they seemed to offer more props and ideas. Before the actual event, Patricia Nguyen offered samples of what the pictures were like and worked with me to add the school colors to the background. On the day of the event, Hornblower "blew it"(pun intended) by sending her and her assistant to the wrong boat. We discovered the mistake on time, and Patricia quickly moved over to the boat we had rented. Despite this obstacle, Patricia quickly set up the props and equipment and kept a very calm and professional attitude. She was ready to take pictures by the time the 300+ students boarded and were done with dinner. The pictures came out really nice, and she provided the electronic backup by the next business day. The feedback from the kids was very positive. They loved the props Patricia provided and how the photos came out. I highly recommend Just the Little Things Photos and Patricia and would hire her again.

The photo booth was a hit! We rented the photo booth with our customized package from Hopp Productions. Everyone loved the booth! We made some of our own props, in addition to those available with the booth rental package. Brandon helped us to create our customized photo strip with the same fonts I had used with all of our invitations. I really appreciated the attention to detail! Brandon was flexible with my attention to detail, and we provided our own scrapbook with pre-created pages that I made for guests to *neatly* paste their photo strips on. All our guests loved photobombing each other, going in Front of the booth multiple times. We even got my 92 year old grandma in there as well! I loved this element of our reception, so glad we booked it! Would absolutely recommend. Professional, timely, easy to work with through their website and email.

Thank you PixCbooth! The photo booth was such a hit with all our employees. The photos came out beautifully, but what I especially appreciated were the little details, like how Cathy custom designed the frame of the photo strip and how I received the photos on a USB wristband after the event (USB's are so easy to lose, so this makes sense!) Thanks again, and would definitely book again for another event.

Twin Spin did an amazing job & I would highly recommend! We had him provide lighting and sound equipment for our event and it was flawless.

Matt was the sole event designer for my wedding, and I have to say, he is one of the most talented people I have ever worked with. He was patient with me during the entire planning process, always listened to my ideas, and offered better solutions where necessary. Forsyth Designs took care of my flowers, decor orders / rentals, ceremony and reception setup, and were the first point of contact for all vendors day of. Having planned and produced so many events flawlessly, he did all of this with ease, and no task seemed to be out of his reach. I would highly recommend Forsyth Designs for your wedding decor and flowers. Very easy to work with, and Matt is a really great person that you will want to be a part of your BIG day. He will bring your dream wedding to life!

I highly recommend hiring The DJ Way for your next event. We hired Isaac for a work event. He was very easy to work with. He came early to set up and was dress appropriately. This was a big thing for my boss because it was a corporate event. Mind you this is a corporate party so therefore a lot of people were hesitant to be the first to jump out there and dance. He was able to loosen everyone up and get people moving. He was very accommodating to guest making special requests. The party ran a little later than expected since guest were having such a good time. Isaac did not rush to leave but played a few last song before we were able to rally everyone out the door. If you are looking for a DJ that understand music and pays attention to your needs, you won't go wrong with hiring The DJ Way.

Thanks for making our wedding memorable. It was a pleasure to work with you, and hope to do it again soon!

A tremendous Thank You to Bao and Memento Strip! We had our wedding banquet on 9/10 and Bao's team was instrumental in making our banquet a success. There were many many moving parts to our banquet - from the decorator showing up late, to our bar running out of ice, to our ice cream station not keeping up with demand, etc etc ... but the one solid reliable piece at our wedding banquet which our guests had a lot of fun with (aside from the delicious food, so I've heard - groom didn't get to eat lol) was the Photo and Video Booth from Memento Strip. Bao and his team showed up early to setup to ensure everything was running smoothly. In addition we had wanted both a Video and Photo Booth for our guests to both record messages and take pictures - because space was limited, Bao, during his consultation with us, was able to customize a booth that had both functions in one - this really helped our space issue and allowed us space for our wishing tree without sacrificing the video messages. Service was great, the attendant was friendly and helpful the entire time, prints came out quickly in high quality and the double prints worked well for our many guests. After the banquet the Memento Strip team even stayed a little bit later and helped us with a few odd and ends! We will undoubtedly be using Memento Strip for our next event!

This has to be THE BEST limo service I have ever used! We booked them last minute and were able to get an amazing driver and a very nice luxurious limo bus. Considering it is Prom season and either every other company was booked or charging ridiculous rates . I worked with Lester and he got us a great deal and a beautiful party bus. From reservation process all the way through the day of our event everything was perfect. The prices are exactly what you'd expect and the service is beyond excellent.

I hired Glenn to DJ my 50th birthday party, which had an 80's prom theme. I'd been to a 70's-themed New Year's dance he'd DJ'ed in the past and it was the most fun I'd ever had--until my 50th birthday dance. Glenn knows how to keep a room dancing, has a great variety of songs (was able to accommodate all the requests from my guests and did so graciously), helped us get going on group dances, and worked tirelessly for 4 hours. He came early to set up and ran ambient music during dinner as well as sound for a short talent show we had before the dance. He is also a great MC, even though we didn't use him in that capacity much at my party. Next year, when we do it again, I will totally ask him to crown the prom king and queen. I would hire him for any event. He is also easy to communicate with and very responsive. He really wants you to have a good time and give you the party you want.

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.

What is in a party bus?

A party bus can be a fun and safe way to transport a group of people to or from an event. A party bus can be anything from a retrofitted school bus complete with disco lights, to an upscale shuttle service, to a stretch Hummer with a full bar. What is inside a party bus depends on the company you hire and what you are looking for. Many party buses have bars in them, complete with glassware, ice bins and mini fridges. Often party buses have festive lighting like strobe lights, black lights, dimmable lighting and track lighting on the floor. A party bus usually has loudspeakers in the back for en route dancing and may even have a dancing pole in the center. Some states require seat belts in party buses and decree that all passengers must be seated when the vehicles are moving, so there must be a seat for each passenger. To make sure you know what you are paying for, request photos of the inside and outside of the exact vehicle you are hiring. Also make sure you have all fees and details of what is and is not covered in a written contract.

How much do you tip for a party bus?

When you rent a party bus, it’s industry standard to tip the driver 15 percent to 20 percent of the rental cost. Some rental companies include a gratuity for the driver as a line item on the bill, while others leave tipping to the discretion of the passengers. Often party bus drivers are employees of the rental company, and are not seeing most of the money you paid to hire the ride for the night. You should consider the tip as a standard part of your total party bus price. The job of the party bus driver is to keep you and the other passengers safe, ensure your comfort, and get you to your destinations on time (barring outside factors like weather or unpredicted traffic). Party bus drivers are usually the ones who stock and prep the bus with ice, drinks, and other requested items before picking you up. They are also usually tasked with cleaning the vehicle after you and your guests are done for the night. Ask your rental company whether a tip is included in the quoted price, and be sure to be prepared with cash or the ability to tip by credit card after the event. Of course, tipping is not required (unless it is a written part of a contract you agreed to), and if you had problems with the driver, you don’t have to tip. But if you had a nice time, consider tipping well. And if your guests were extra rowdy and messy, add a few extra dollars to your tip to acknowledge the driver’s extra work cleaning up after you.

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 much does it cost to rent a party bus?

Party bus prices vary based on the size of party bus you want, the time of day and day of the week you need, and the length of time that you want to rent the bus. The national average price to rent a party bus is $530-$700. Party bus prices can also be affected by where in the country you live. Bigger cities, like New York, have higher fees for insurance, licensing and tolls than a smaller town might, plus a higher cost to do business, so party bus prices will typically be higher than in smaller cities.

The size and luxury of the party bus you want will affect the price. For example, a 10-passenger vehicle could cost $100 per hour, a 14-passenger vehicle could cost $125 per hour, and a 20-passenger vehicle could cost $150 per hour. Party bus prices will also be dictated by the season or holidays. Rental on New Year’s Eve will be much more expensive than on a Tuesday afternoon in November. Most rental companies have a minimum number of hours you must rent, often starting around four hours. The longer you rent, the higher the price. The distance you travel can also affect cost. For example, a driving tour through wine country can cost more than a bar-hopping party through town — even for the same number of hours — due to the additional fuel required to drive the longer distance. Messy party guests can also increase your party bus price. Broken glass, major spills, or damage to the vehicle’s interior or exterior will all be billed to the customer. A company may have a base rate of $150 for excessive cleaning, plus additional charges for actual damage.
