Bill was a great addition to our wedding entertainment. He came early, even I told him, that were not necessary the props, as very experienced in the field brought a couple of big boxes full of stuff and everyone, enjoyed, few little kids, teenagers and lots of oldies. Thank you Bill for your amazing work! you are so patience, real virtue. Definitely I will keep you in mind, for the next event I do have! THANK YOU!!!

I didn't think I could afford a photo booth until I got the quote from Photo Booths of Southern NE. Very reasonable! Everything was great. Alicia was great! All of the wedding guests had a blast with it. I would definitely recommend you to others! Thank you to Stephanie for being very accommodating!

The kids enjoyed the show, and Bob and his wife stayed late to ensure all of the kids had at least one balloon animal. Unfortunately, none of us realized that they had performed at my son's daycare just the previous day, so he and several of his friends already knew many of the tricks. But, the good news is that my son happily described the show at his school, so I knew he'd be happy with his birthday show. Only hiccup was when my 5 yo took one of the tricks a bit too seriously (he thought he'd really lost a ring) and got upset. Bob felt terrible and did his very best to cheer up my boy.

The photobooth Jeremiah set up for my wedding was absolutely perfect in every way. The backdrop with all the lights was beyond beautiful. Jeremiah brought along countless fun props and made sure everything was all set and taken care of. The photobooth was a huge success and the wedding guests had so much fun with it. I can't thank Jeremiah enough for helping to preserve memories of the best day of my life. I would highly recommend his photography and photo booth to everyone. His incredible talent will make your most special day even more magical!

Keith and team did SUCH an excellent job running the photo booth for our wedding. They had so many fun props and the photo booth looked very nice set up with a red style carpet and backdrop. The photo booth was such a hit and we had tons of guests lining up for second and third turns. In between visitors, Keith's team reorganized the props so that the prop table remained neat. They kept the line moving. I was most impressed by their professionalism and how the booth added such a fun, unique, yet sophisticated flare to our elegant wedding. Keith's team also worked with us before the wedding to select the template and font we wanted for the photos so they would reflect the style of our wedding. The pricing was very reasonable and I would recommend them to everyone!

Julie is an awesome voice teacher. My 9 yr old daughter has grown to love music very much after taking lessons with Julie. Her voice has become professional and she had gained much confidence to perform solo in many concerts. I am very happy that we found Julie.

We hired TPF Entertainment for our wedding reception in May and could not have been more pleased! They are great to work with and hey even gave us a complimentary photo album guestbook which is great to be able to look through for years to come! They were the lowest price around and that did not effect quality one bit. Their photo props were great and I loved all the effects you can add to photos. I love that the photo "remote" is an iPad that you control. It's just very fun, easy to do and memorable! Thanks again for everything!

Everyone at the wedding LOVED the mirror booth. Its a great way to make a fun guest book. What I liked the best about Hello Booth Rental is they make prints for each person in the photo. Most companies you only get two photo strips. That way everyone gets to go home with the photos they were in. After the wedding they sent the digital files to me right away

Everyone loved it!! We could not get people out of the booth! Sharee and Tom were so excellent. The props, the lights, the customized strips, everything was perfect. Sharee was above and beyond helping our guests make our scrapbook. It came out better than I ever imagined! People were asking me about it all night, wanting the same booth and people at their events! We cannot wait to see ALL the fun pics on the USB (we had sooo many people taking (multiple) photos they couldn't all load in time after the wedding so Sharee is mailing it to us :) ) Would highly recommend!

I absolutely loved having Chris and Booth Shopp for our wedding! He created our own unique photo layout design with a custom background and didn’t mind when I kept changing my mind. All my wedding guests complimented all the fun hats and signs that were available to use during our pictures and all thought that Chris was professional and helpful with using the camera system. I would recommend Booth Shopp to all my family and friends.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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 much does a mariachi band cost?

A mariachi band will bring your party or event alive with their fabulous costumes, beautiful playing and strong vocals. The cost of a mariachi band for hire will depend on how many players are in the group. Each musician in a performance group needs to be paid, so pricing is usually based on the number of mariachis (musicians), the location of the event (and travel time required), and the length of the performance. Day of the week also affects cost, as does day — Christmas, New Year’s Eve and other major holidays will cost more than regular days. The national average cost for live bands of all types ranges between $740 and $1,200. Depending on where you live and regional rates for performers, you might expect to pay between $65 and $120 per hour, per player. Mariachi groups may have 12-15 players available for performance at one time, depending on your budget. Here are some examples of how the number of players affects average cost:

  • Four mariachis: $300 per hour for weeknights, $400 per hour for weekends.
  • Five mariachis: $350 per hour for weeknights, $400-$450 per hour for weekends. Weekends may have a minimum number of hours.
  • Six mariachis: $400 per hour for weeknights, $450-$500 per hour for weekends.

How many mariachis can a band have?

A mariachi band for hire can have as many players as you like. Modern mariachi bands typically have a minimum of four players with the trumpet playing a vital musical role along with stringed instruments such as the violin, guitarrón (a Mexican bass guitar with a deep body), vihuela (a Spanish stringed guitar) and guitar. Strong vocals are also an important component of mariachi bands for hire, since one or more of the players will be singing during the performance. For a truly spectacular show, you can hire a mariachi band with 15 or more players. The medley of stringed instruments, multiple trumpets, soaring vocals, and even an accordion or harp is powerful and beautiful. Mariachis typically wear the traditional costume of charros — Mexican horsemen. The look is a very regal, monotone suit, often in black or white, with silver adornments and embroidery. Mariachi bands often wear sombreros as well. Traditional mariachi bands were only made up of two or more players, according to a UNESCO report celebrating the cultural heritage of the musical style. The style of music originated in the state of Jalisco. Now the style of music is symbolic of Mexico but is celebrated all over the world, and adds a fabulous vibrancy to any group’s events, parties and weddings.
