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.

Reviews for Romulus photo booth rental professionals
Thumbtack Customer
My event was a family gathering for an outdoor BBQ for about 60 - 70 people. Patsey assisted me with the party arrangements and was wonderful to work with. She was very professional and also provided helpful suggestions to make my event a success. I originally contacted Cocktails N Dreams for a photo booth but added additional services (Bartender, servers, and a snow cone machine). The staff arrived on time, they were all extremely polite, very professional and made everything run smoothly. I did have a few concerns with Cocktails N Dreams . When I originally contacted them in July to book my August event Patsey completed my contract agreement and said she would email me with the contract the next day. But, a week later I had to call for the contract. It still took an additional week and another call back to receive the contract. I spoke with Kelly and she apologized & explained they had an annual event to complete and would send the contract right away. I almost cancelled but realized I din't have enough time to find a new vendor. Another concern was a discrepancy with the cost of the photo boot. Kelly sent me a quote for $300 for 3 hrs which I accepted but when Patsey called to confirm the contract she said it was for 2 and 1/2 hours. I told her we agreed on 3 hrs & she said no problem.My final concern was the rental of the snow cone machine; Patsey called me the day before my event to ask what time did I want to pick up the snow cone machine. I was never advised that I was responsible for picking it up. I told her I was too busy. She said it could be delivered for an additional $25 and I said I should cancel it. So, she decided to ask the bartender to bring it with him. This should have been discussed when the original plans were made. Customers need to known up front what they are responsible for. They should never receive a last minute notice.
