"Mark provides a unique show filled with music, audience participation, and comedy. Several of the routines you will see during his shows are original, and you will not see them anywhere else. Balloons become teddy bears, swords, hats, flowers, dogs, etc. Everyday objects become miracles right before your eyes. Client Reviews are as follows: * Kids' birthday party in Warren, MI "Yes, Mark was amazing. He not only amused kids but also adults too. We're very impressed and amazed. He is very friendly to kids and a pleasant and an easygoing person. I would like to call him again in any other party. Mark is also very patient with kids which I noticed when he was making balloon animals for them." -- Manisha D. * Easter celebration in Clinton Township, MI "Magic Mark was 15 minutes early for the event, which gave him and I time to go over the game plan for the Easter egg hunt. He engaged the children with his magic tricks and his ability to twist balloons. He gave each child an opportunity to request what shape he/she wanted the balloon in and even the color of the balloon. If their balloons came on done or broke, he joyously twisted them with another. I will be hiring Magic Mark for future events at our church. The parents were very pleased with Magic Mark also for his professionalism and talent. Because of his talent, the children and parents had too much fun!" -- Karen I. * Kids' birthday party in Grosse Pointe Woods, MI "My husband, son and I were extremely satisfied with Mark. He arrived as planned and even delayed showtime for about a half hour because people actually don't show up for parties on time. He kept the kids entertained and was very gracious. My son loved the show as did the other children. A co-worker suggested gig masters, and I am glad she did. Mark's show was interactive and kept the kids involved. I hope he was able to pick up future business. I know I will refer him if someone ask, or I will suggest. Thanks gig masters, especially Mark for making Bryce's birthday event a success." -- Keisha B. * Wahida Bappy to me "Mr. Mark Luedtke was awesome with the kids at my son's first birthday. Everybody was enjoying his magic show. He has a great personality. I will recommend him to any of my friends or family. I would love to have him again on another party." Hi Mark, Thank you so much for participating in the girls' silver award project for the community. Shelby TWP and Kiwanis states that they are going to make this an annual event now. Thank you again; you did a wonderful job. Even the adults enjoyed your show! Sue "Mark did a great job of entertaining the guests at our wedding. His upbeat attitude and creative magic tricks helped to add a lot of fun to the evening." -- Gene B. " I found Mark while searching for balloon artists for my daughter's birthday. When I spoke to him he said he also did magic shows. Oh am I glad I called him. His magic show kept not only the kids but the adults engrossed as well. He played an awesome part in making my party a hit. He is also very professional as he came in early and had his setup ready while patiently waited for us to finish snacks and a little chit chat before his show. I would gladly recommend him to anybody and hope to have him over for another party soon." -- Suja B. Mark did a fantastic job performing at my son's 10th birthday party. He captivated the young and old (40-75 years of age) with his magic and enthusiasm. I have to admit I was a little apprehensive on hiring him not knowing if he would be able to hold the attention of 10-year-old boys, but he did the entire time! He geared his show to the age of the children. For example, he taught the boys a couple of tricks instead of making balloon animals, which he normally does. After his performance, he hang out with us for a while and helped my son with some of the magic tricks that he received as gifts. Overall, the night was a success due to his professionalism and entertainment! -- Terri A. Everyone enjoyed the magic show! Mark was great with the kids and showed up on time as well. Will definitely recommend and hire him again! -- Sonia A."

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.
