"My husband and I hired him for our wedding in July of 2013 and could not have been more pleased! We found him through searching online and contacted him in order to avoid other wedding dj companies in our area because we heard they were unfriendly and a friend of mine had a negative experience in the past with one. Chris got back to us right away and really had enthusiasm for his job and put a lot of effort into meeting our needs and answering all questions and concerns we had. The ceremony was a blast as we had around 200 people in an outdoor/pavilion type setup. Chris’ music selection was perfect for our dinner hour and then he really got the energy up and people dancing. He had a great mic presence and kept things organized. He played all of the songs we requested. His djing along with the 20 cases of wine we had certainly made it a fun atmosphere and a great time for our guests! Chris has a great personality and did a wonderful job. My husband and I are very thankful for the awesome experience he showed us. We strongly recommend Chris Washburn as a dj for your wedding celebration!"

"I thought that Bob did a good job. He had numerous other items then just music. He had revolving lights on the dance floor which made the atmosphere seem like a Hollywood party. There were spot lights on the Walls that had pictures on them to make the room more decorative. One nice thing that I liked the sound was not turned up so loud so you could talk to the person next to you. The further away from the dance floor the quieter the sound, so you could carry on with a conversation and yet the people on the dance floor got the full impact of each song. I would hire Bob again if given the opportunity."

"She was on time, she always responded to my emails and even took care of my last minute changes because I couldn’t make up my mind! I would definitely recommend them to friends and family for the next party and would use her again myself! The photo booth was the best thing we could have had at the wedding!"

"Brian worked as the D.J. for the Pulaski Jr-Sr Prom at the Kallet Theater in downtown Pulaski. The service was amazing, Brian arrived right on time and helped add to the décor of the venue with special lighting and laser effects based on the prom theme. His photo booth service was amazing and kids enjoyed all the props and photos they could take home with them. Excellent music was played throughout the night and he took requests as well. Students enjoyed the music, but their only complaint as they told him was the D.J. set-up. Not his fault at all as he came in and set up what he had brought with him. Next time I plan to use his services he will be bringing his floor speakers to rock the stage. Excellent work and service throughout the whole night."

"The photo booth was so much fun to have at our event. Fit a good amount of people and the pictures still came out great! Love the props. We were especially a fan of the customized image at the bottom of the pictures. Plus, they gave us a CD of all the images so we got to enjoy even the ones we didn't see. Too fun!"

"We used Thomas Bartolini's photo booth service for my mother's 90th birthday party, which took place at our home. The service was fantastic: prompt arrival, wonderful help with the scrapbooking, great props, just everything and more than we expected. There was no limit to the number of photos people could take, and everyone was able to take photos home, as well as using their photos to create a memory book for my mom. I had tons of positive comments from our guests, and I recommend this service to anyone who wants to add something extra to a festive occasion."

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.
