We just wrapped a Glow party for our 10yo and Party Favor Photo was an absolute hit at the party! The kids LOVED the booth and the on site photo prints, plus all the digital adds, including free downloads of all the photos in and out of the template, is an amazing bonus. From start to finish they were completely professional and amazing. They designed a beautiful custom template pre-party to match the theme, and the prints are amazing!!!! Our attendant arrived on time and was really patient and nice, despite a constant influx of young kids. She was also was very helpful in ensuring that all heights were captured:-) When our photo booth rental time was almost done, our attendant was amazing and made sure she grabbed our daughter to take photos with as many people as possible for the last 15 mins! She was paying attention and noticed she had not gotten a lot of shots with her. This meant that we ended up with a ton of photos of our daughter and her friends, which we otherwise would not have gotten. I will definitely use them for the next event I have that uses a photo booth. I highly recommend that you use this company for your photo booth rental.

Becky's FUN Photo Booth could not have been more perfect! I had last minute (week of event) booking for our organization's Holiday party. Becky was more than understanding and took the time to work with me, even though it was last minute. I received great feedback from employees stating that " They had so much fun" & "What a cool idea!!". I highly recommend this company for any event!!

Malcholm is hands down the best videographer that I've worked with and I've worked with a lot. His passion, skill, and attention to detail puts him heads and shoulders above everyone else. After seeing the incredible portfolio online, i called Malcholm and we talked a couple times via phone to discuss my project. I was impressed with his perspective regsrding the filming of my event as well as his promptness in replying to my emails. On the day of the event, Malcholm arrived earlier that the job required to connect with me and to get perspective on where he would be able to capture the best footage. The day after the event, he had all of the recorded footage sent to me! The earliest that I have received my footage in the past was a week. Malcholm is the real deal. Saying he exceeded my expectations is an understatement. Hoan Do Author, Speaker, American Ninja Warrior HoanDo.com

Kacey and her team were fantastic at our family reunion. They were courteous, responded well to all requests, arrived on time and were generally very professional. They were also very good value for the money. Leading up to the event, Kacey was very willing to work with me at the pace I set and even recommended other vendors that were equally professional. Thank you!

I rented a car for my wife birthday. The car was beautiful, cleaned, and very well stocked and the driver was top notch. She was very accommodating and even gave our little kids a ride before we headed off on our little excursion. The limo also arrived at our home about 5 minutes early....no waiting at all. I will definitely use them again and highly recommend them for your event. They are professionals!

Mad props to Mad Props for a wonderful photo booth experience! They were quick to respond to my inquiry and in providing proofs of the photo design layout for my event. Our photo booth experience during the event was delightful. David and Jena were super friendly to all the guests. They created a lighthearted atmosphere as guests looked through props and waited for pictures. They also provided enough prints for everyone in the pictures. After the event we had access to digital copies of all the photos for the night. Mad Props was a hit and I would definitely ask them back for another event!

I hired Jack and one of his associates for jazzy background music at my house on two separate occasions. He was easy to work with, arrived on time, and his fee was very reasonable given his high talent level. I have no hesitation in recommending Jack for his music service, whether to play at an event or for music lessons. And I would definitely use him again.

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 in a party bus?

A party bus can be a fun and safe way to transport a group of people to or from an event. A party bus can be anything from a retrofitted school bus complete with disco lights, to an upscale shuttle service, to a stretch Hummer with a full bar. What is inside a party bus depends on the company you hire and what you are looking for. Many party buses have bars in them, complete with glassware, ice bins and mini fridges. Often party buses have festive lighting like strobe lights, black lights, dimmable lighting and track lighting on the floor. A party bus usually has loudspeakers in the back for en route dancing and may even have a dancing pole in the center. Some states require seat belts in party buses and decree that all passengers must be seated when the vehicles are moving, so there must be a seat for each passenger. To make sure you know what you are paying for, request photos of the inside and outside of the exact vehicle you are hiring. Also make sure you have all fees and details of what is and is not covered in a written contract.

How much do you tip for a party bus?

When you rent a party bus, it’s industry standard to tip the driver 15 percent to 20 percent of the rental cost. Some rental companies include a gratuity for the driver as a line item on the bill, while others leave tipping to the discretion of the passengers. Often party bus drivers are employees of the rental company, and are not seeing most of the money you paid to hire the ride for the night. You should consider the tip as a standard part of your total party bus price. The job of the party bus driver is to keep you and the other passengers safe, ensure your comfort, and get you to your destinations on time (barring outside factors like weather or unpredicted traffic). Party bus drivers are usually the ones who stock and prep the bus with ice, drinks, and other requested items before picking you up. They are also usually tasked with cleaning the vehicle after you and your guests are done for the night. Ask your rental company whether a tip is included in the quoted price, and be sure to be prepared with cash or the ability to tip by credit card after the event. Of course, tipping is not required (unless it is a written part of a contract you agreed to), and if you had problems with the driver, you don’t have to tip. But if you had a nice time, consider tipping well. And if your guests were extra rowdy and messy, add a few extra dollars to your tip to acknowledge the driver’s extra work cleaning up after you.

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 much does it cost to rent a party bus?

Party bus prices vary based on the size of party bus you want, the time of day and day of the week you need, and the length of time that you want to rent the bus. The national average price to rent a party bus is $530-$700. Party bus prices can also be affected by where in the country you live. Bigger cities, like New York, have higher fees for insurance, licensing and tolls than a smaller town might, plus a higher cost to do business, so party bus prices will typically be higher than in smaller cities.

The size and luxury of the party bus you want will affect the price. For example, a 10-passenger vehicle could cost $100 per hour, a 14-passenger vehicle could cost $125 per hour, and a 20-passenger vehicle could cost $150 per hour. Party bus prices will also be dictated by the season or holidays. Rental on New Year’s Eve will be much more expensive than on a Tuesday afternoon in November. Most rental companies have a minimum number of hours you must rent, often starting around four hours. The longer you rent, the higher the price. The distance you travel can also affect cost. For example, a driving tour through wine country can cost more than a bar-hopping party through town — even for the same number of hours — due to the additional fuel required to drive the longer distance. Messy party guests can also increase your party bus price. Broken glass, major spills, or damage to the vehicle’s interior or exterior will all be billed to the customer. A company may have a base rate of $150 for excessive cleaning, plus additional charges for actual damage.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
