How much does a photobooth type deal cost for the wedding?

For those girls that have had or have gotten photobooths (where a photographer snaps pictures of guests as they arrive), how much on average does that cost?


Thanks in advance!

Yikes!  1k-1500 for a physical booth is a bit much...hopefully the photographers are more reasonable.

Mine was $750 through Project Photobooth. Their website is www.projectphotobooth.com


Their work: http://projectphotobooth.smugmug.com/


At first I was planning to go with Red Cheese but realized it would actually be more fun to have an actual booth with a photog to take the photos. You could fit more people like prom photos and take awesome group shots.

We're having an actual booth and it's $1200 (with scrapbooking supplies, an attendant, extra prints, and custom logo). It was actually cheaper then the one that they have the actual photographer, but this was here in Vegas. The company I was looking at with the comes with 2 photogs & does an awesome red carpet entrance, complete with the red carpet & velvet ropes.....and one person snaps a pic on the carpet on their entrance, and another at the end with a backdrop of your choice. I think this just may be the next big thing lol. It was way overbudget for me so we stuck with the plain old photobooth. Plus, July in Vegas...I think my guests will be eager to get inside and not wanna hang out on the red carpet.

Wow, I didn't know that photographers were so expensive.  D:


The red carpet idea is pretty cool though...very unique!

I've been quoted 1075, 1350 and 1500.. offering 4 hrs of service and double prints. I found one photographer who sets up her camera and has the back drop and that is only 300$ but i dont think you get any prints with it. not sure though... I can give you her name if you want. Just PM me but she is LA FYI.

For something like that, I think I would DIY my own photobooth. In the long run, I wish I had done that for my wedding.  Find an inexpensive photog on Craigslist for just that purpose, put up a curtain in the background, and be done with it!  You could probably purchase a photo printer to have right there as well.  Nobody will think you took an inexpensive route.

Photo booths are so much fun, regardless of which route you take. One of my brides set up a colorful blanket, laid out a ton of HILARIOUS props (fake gold chain, anyone?), and set out a Polaroid camera with an Adesso album. The guests had a ton of fun and she had a wonderful guestbook to commemorate the event.


Check out some photos here:

do you want them to be able to provide immediate prints or just give you a cd later? my photog was going to add it on for an extra 600 without immediate prints. we want our guests to take the prints home and put a copy in our guestbook though so we are doing a "photobooth" type deal. no actual booth but a set diff photo taking 4 diff pics and immediate strips (unlimited copies of the same strip) for 1250 (includes the guestbook and separate attendant to take care of prints and guestbook).

I think our's came out to $1200 for the photobooth IMO it's worth it though. I've talked to people who have been to weddings with them and they were a huge hit.

I think we paid $1195 for our photobooth. We went with partybooths. They were the cheapest I could find in my area for 6 hours, a cd, and custom banner.

I am looking at getting a photo booth and it is $100 for 4 hours of service, double prints, a CD of all of the pics, and a scrapbook the guests can put their pictures in and sign. They will also include your monogram on the bottom of all of the pics.


My MOH was married in November, and she had her guest book attendants take pictures of groups when they walked in.  Everyone signed a small card (I think it was like business card size) then after the wedding she printed out the pictures and matched them up with the signatures to finish out her guest book.


But now....I am in love with what chungnguyen posted!!!


PS--If you cannot print out the pic's immediatley at the reception, I think it would be a nice touch to include a copy in their thank you note :)
