Great experience, from start to finish! We hired them for my parent's 50th wedding anniversary party (5 hours total). Vinny was responsive, professional and great to work with. The photo booth operator, Ben, contacted me ahead of time to introduce himself and he was punctual, professional & patient. It was a fabulous hit with everyone at the party and a tremendous value. We would definitely hire them again!!

Heath provided a wonderful evening of entertainment for our wedding. He came to the venue a week early to make sure that he could set things up properly. He was on site early the day of the wedding and had everything ready to go. The music and his announcing were right on cue. He did exactly what we asked of him. He was fantastic.

I highly recommend this photo booth! The attendant was very professional, punctual and really made the experience enjoyable for our wedding guests. I also do not know how this company was able to be so responsive! I always received emails and answers to my questions immediately, even in the middle of the night! My wedding guests were able to get as many copies as they wanted and there were no technical issues at all. Within 12 hours of the event I also had the complete album of photos. Really an amazing company and great value. They will always be my go to company for a memorable and amazing photo booth!

Vick was the fan favorite of the wedding. Both children and adults were fascinated by his illusions. He has a huge heart and speaks a lot of important values throughout the show. He also has a fabulous trick with a wine bottle that we used as a house warming gift for one of our groomsmen. He had to cut his show short because we were behind on time but still stayed a little later so he cod do some simple tricks for the kids. I'm impressed with his work and his people skills. I would absolutely book him again!

Bugsy was excellent! He worked closely with us and our day of coordinator to be sure that we didn't have to stress on our big day. He sent us a very detailed form to fill out with our entrance songs, first dance song, other fun dances, and our must play/must not play requests. His selection of songs for during lunch (when no one was dancing) was perfectly matched to our vibe. I definitely recommend him to those planning a wedding or other event.

Fairy Jennabelle was surrounded by children throughout our entire event and she was amazing at engaging and delighting them even as they waited in line. She is a very gifted artist and the kids were thrilled with their faces when she was done transforming them. Having Fairy Jennabelle at our event was much more special than just offering face painting as part of the afternoon's festivities. She was so entertaining that she quickly became the hit of the party!

Michael made our Daughter's 5th Birthday truly magical. With lots of creative balloons, neat magic tricks to entertain both kids and parents alike. Further, Michael was kind enough to incorporate a plush bunny upon my request, this really hit well with the kids. Moreover, Michael accommodated more time than agreed to allow guests to come in to watch the show, We really appreciated the time and effort he took to make this birthday memorable. Kids loved the characters, princesses, penguins, flowers and crown that were made out of balloons. Michael was on time very professional yet friendly and put a lot of effort to his magic art. The price was just right and the magic show completed the Birthday party for our daughter and our guests. The show was a bit lengthy as such moving forward he could breaking it down to two portions if time permits. We will highly recommend Michael to any parent. Anu D

I booked this vendor because I want my photographer to enjoy my wedding rather than work the entire time since he was a friend doing me a favor. I purchased the optional wedding book in which my guests wrote their comments next to their photos. It made my day reading all the sweet comments after the wedding was over. It is awesome that each person gets their own photo strip...I opted for the plastic sleeves so the pictures wouldn't get damaged. I think the photo booth idea was a great way for people to be silly and enjoy themselves. The vendor, Jennifer, was very professional and engaging. I would highly recommend her for your event.

Glenn was great to work with. He had a very clear system of getting our input on the songs well before the event. Additionally, he made sure we were on the phone the week leading up to the wedding to clarify details. During the wedding, Glenn was very flexible and helped us work around some space constraints and last minute changes we had to make. We are extremely happy with the work Glenn did at our wedding, and I'd recommend him to any of my friends or family.

David and Jena did an absolutely incredible job at our wedding, and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. From designing the film strip to selecting fun props to the actual wedding day, Mad Props was fun and easy to work with - simply perfect!! Our guests kept them busy all night and they kept all the guests laughing. They also made an unforgettable memory guestbook with copies of all the photos that is just an invaluable keepsake of all the fun we had. I would hire them again in a heartbeat!!!

My husband and I had Kevin do the photo booth at our wedding and it was phenomenal! Our guests still to this day, cannot stop talking about it. Some have their photo strips either on their fridge or in their car. Not only was Kevin punctual, but stood by the booth to help with prints or any mishaps. He is professional and it shows in his work.

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 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.

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 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.
