After the first contact, they stayed engaged. Answered Questions , if there was a detail not quite sure of, did return with the answer in a timely manner. Daughter thoroughly enjoyed her session with Elaine. The online photo gallery was done a day earlier than written down. We were late by a few minutes, and they were cool about it. They have a few new 'tricks' in their shop that I may take advantage of come Grad party time.

Greg was an absolute pleasure to work with! Very professional and so much fun to have at our wedding! The photo strip pictures printed off right away for our guests and with great clarity. At the end of the night Greg copied all of the pictures onto a disc for us to keep. They also had great props to use and an awesome set up that worked perfectly with our wedding venue area. And to top it off they went above and beyond what we originally discussed about the time that the photo booth was running. I would highly recommend using KaiserClix for any wedding, party or event!! Thanks again Greg for everything! Amanda

This company is amazing! My family surprised me with this photobooth service for my babyshower party and it was the main attraction. The service was outstanding and the couple who I believe are the owners were so engaging and fun. I really recommend MN photobooth and will hire them again in the future!

I was in a wedding party that Aleah did the make-up for and I was amazed by her talent! She did a spectacular job and I received many complements on it, as did the bride and rest of the bridal party. Looking back at pictures we all looked flawless and beautiful all thanks for Aleah's amazing skills and expertise.

Madeleine was great to work with. We hired her to face paint at our kids' summer party. She was professional and friendly with the adults, and most importantly, she was really sweet to the kids and did a great job with the face painting. We will definitely be hiring her again and recommending her to friends and family!

Kristoff was absolutely amazing! I had an event for around 300 people, and throughout the whole night guests were blown away with how fantastic he was. He was definitely a highlight to a huge event. As for his act, his magic was spectacular and unbelievable! And he had a great sense of humor throughout it all. Plus with audience participation, he sucked everyone in! I highly recommend him as a great addition to any party/event.

Dan was Great!! We used him (photo booth) for our daughter's Graduation Party, and it was a BIG hit. Dan was easy to communicate with leading up to the event, was there early to setup, and could not have been any nicer. We would highly recommend.

Hands down, DJ Mike is the best DJ around!! I met him at Paisley Park when Prince had him hosting a DJ dance party. Mike has the best taste in music and always knows the perfect songs to set the right mood for a special event. At Paisley Park, he played songs that got everyone up and dancing. I highly recommend him!!!

The spin DJ Hanoi gave to our wedding was the best gift I could receive on such a special day. He is affordable. There are no words to describe his quality of work! He is friendly, caring, fun and was amazing at hyping up our wedding party. His effortless skills was the icing on the cake!!!! There was not a song he didn't know or have! A true pioneer and deserves major recognition. Thank you DJ Hanoi for being part of such a special day to remember!!!

David did his kids show for my daughters 6th birthday. We had at least 15 kids ages, four to ten (even a few younger, and he held their interest too). He was on time to the venue, and started the show at the time agreed upon. He immediately had the children quiet and focused on him, then he had them all laughing at his jokes. For the age group at the party he held their attention so good. No one grew bored, or antsy. He made the birthday girl feel extra special, while including everyone else too. Everyone including the adults were laughing and engaged. The magic show was the best part of the party, and the only time I could sit and breathe because all of the focus was one him. My daughters school and daycare friends talked about the show for days. David is a total professional and great at what he does. I would definitely book him again, and recommend him to anyone looking to entertain from kids to adults.

Martha was a wonderful addition to our daughters wedding party. She assisted with the choices of wording and music and even played her harp and officiated! She is very professional and a really nice person to work with. The ceremony was very meaningful and lovely in our outdoor setting and everyone stayed cool and calm even in the heat! I highly recommend her!

    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 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 does a fortune teller do?

    A fortune teller offers insight into people’s past, present and future through private readings. Some fortune tellers read palms or use tarot cards, runes, or tea leaves to see into a client’s future. Other fortune tellers consider themselves psychics, numerologists and mystics who look for patterns and meaning in seemingly random events, such as stirred tea leaves or the draw of a tarot card. By interpreting what they see in the cards or leaves, fortune tellers answer their clients’ questions about their lives, such as who or when they’ll marry, whether they should quit their job, or whether they should have a baby. Tarot card readings are a particularly popular way of having your future told, because they’re such a familiar method of fortune telling. More importantly, you can guide a tarot reading by asking the specific questions that are most important to you. By interpreting the cards you’ve drawn, the fortune teller may give you new insight into yourself and help you make an important decision. For some people, fortune tellers are simply amusing, but for others, they offer helpful guidance and spiritual nourishment.  

    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.

    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.
