Ellisha was amazing and so talented! We hired her for our boys birthday party (ages 5 and 7) and had no clue what a hit the face painting would be, having a face painter totally made the party!! A bunch of 5, 6,7,and 8 year olds and each of their faces turned out so cute/cool! It was the highlight of the party. Thanks Ellisha!!

Simply awesome! Phil went above and beyond to deliver an outstanding experience for the guests at our party. From meeting to discuss the play list and karaoke lineup, to even sending me ukulele tracks so we could play a couple of songs together - would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone wanting to take their party up a notch and provide a memorable experience for all who attend.

Kurt was the DJ for my daughter and her friend's Sweet 16 party. He did a phenomenal job! I think the ultimate litmus test of a good DJ is to put them before a crowd of 16 year olds! They loved him, loved the music, loved the photo booth- it was all a huge hit! Kurt was very professional and extremely easy to work with (even through a reschedule due to a snowstorm!). I would hire him again in a nanosecond. :) Overheard at the party: "I wish we could hire him for our school dances- he's way better than the DJs we get!"

Beautiful work! The line for face-painting started to back up so I suggest keeping the designs simple. She provided a great list of options for the kids and adults (really pretty glitter, not crazy or tacky). Thank you for helping to make our neighborhood night out party of 300 people extra special!

Hannah showed up about 10 minutes earlier than was expected in order to be setup and be ready before the party guests arrived. Her artwork was very phenomenal and was able to accommodate a large range of request from ninja turtles to princess and animal faces. She is very sweet and handled the sugar charged kids with ease. She is very professional and will definitely hire Hannah for any of my future events. I thank her so much for making a good birthday party great!!!

Andrea was absolutely fantastic! While we aren’t her typcial clientele (adults) she confidently took up our request to transform my boyfriend and I into Sally and Jack from Nightmare Before Christmas. I sent her some inspiration photos and she NAILED IT! We had endless compliments at the costume party, and the best part is we didn’t feel like we were in full face paint. It was also a breeze to wash off at the end of the night. A+++ work, I highly recommend Andrea for your face painting needs and would rehire. Also, huge bonus that she did this all from the comfort of our home!

Jonathan was simply the best! He played for 2 hours at our party and was incredible. He is an exceptionally talented musician and singer. Everyone at our party was talking about how good he was. He has great communication, showed up early, set up quickly, and was an overall joy to work with. We'll definitely hire him again when we are looking for a live musician.

We had Hans & The Wanted play at our community block party and they were fantastic. Not only was the music exactly what we were looking for - summer time fun - but they were very professional and showed up way before the event to set up. They quickly responded to any questions that we had leading up to the party. Plus, they are just a great group of people. We will definitely have them back!

We found DJ Collin through a friend referral and we are so glad we did! We are not from Portland, OR coast area, so I was very worried about finding a DJ that could handle our ceremony on the beach, manage and MC the flow at our reception, and throw a killer dance party. From our first Skype call with Collin, we knew we had found the perfect fit! He made planning easy and stayed in touch with us up until the big day. We had some ideas for musical selections, but DJ Collin had a ton of great playlists and he was great about reading the crowd and taking requests. When unexpected things came up (like a poor quality ceremony sound system provided by our venue) DJ Collin went above and beyond to make things work. Another cool service feature DJ Collin had that we didn't even know we wanted until we saw it was his Magic Mirror photo booth! It was a hit with our guests and Collin sent us all the photos electronically after the event so we could look through them. Collin and his staff were extremely professional and had a great setup. Collin took the time to understand what was most important to us on our day and helped make things run smoothly. We would HIGHLY recommend Collin to anyone that is looking for a DJ for their next party or wedding! Thanks Collin for helping us throw our best party!

At the end of December I threw a surprise 40th birthday party for my wife. I set it up at Migration Brewing, and thought that it would be fun to have a photo booth for the guests. We decided to use SnapZone Photo Booth. We had a room reserved from 6:00 until the end of the evening, which for us was around 10:30. Since this party was a surprise, and I was bringing my wife after the other guests had arrived, Rick Thames was left to set up everything without my being present. He even contacted the venue on his own to make sure that everything would be in order when he arrived. By the time my wife and I arrived, just before 7:00, the party was under way. After the initial “Surprise” everyone settled into having a good time. The photo booth was used throughout the entire party. In fact, it had been used for the hour prior to our arrival. There were an assortment of props and it was easy to use. All of the guests enjoyed having several turns at the photo booth, and my wife loved having fun personal memories with all of her friends. Everything from setup to take down was handled professionally and efficiently. I would definitely use Rick Thames again for any future parties. It provided a great time for the guests and some fun, quirky memories.

My parents, their guests, and our family enjoyed the music Dee provided for their party SO MUCH! It’s a week later and people at the Bonaventure are still talking about it – particularly how wonderful the music was. Dee brought back many special memories for the whole group with excellent song selections and beautiful singing. I am very pleased Dee was able to find music for my parents’ favorite songs – it added a personal note and really touched their hearts. The extra effort he went to in finding the music and rehearsing the special songs was really appreciated! I also admire how prepared and organized Dee was with his equipment – It was a quick set up and his attention to safety and access were terrific. It was a very happy occasion for all of us. Dee really added to its specialness.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    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.  

    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.

    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.
