Classic Photo Booth, LLC. (Previously Photo Illusion, LLC)
I was very much looking forward to use this vendor because my brother used the same company for his wedding on the East Coast and they (and I, as a guest) had a great experience. However, their West Coast crew was disappointing: at the wedding, the attendants were surly and did not interact much with the guests (they offer a scrapbook at the end of the event full of photo strips with well-wishes from guests; the attendants are supposed to instruct the guests to take two photo strips then paste one of them into the book for the bride & groom); the attendants did not instruct the guests properly and guests reported to me that the attendants were frequently on their cell phones and that they never received any instruction on how to add to the scrapbook. At the end of the event, the scrapbook was put together in a very shoddy way.
When I wrote to the company to complain, they offered me an apology and a promise to talk to the attendant, which would benefit future events but "I understand that at this point, this means little comfort to you, again I apologize."
We spent a lot of money on this vendor and feel that we did not get what we paid for.
We absolutely loved working with Photo Illusion, LLC. My wedding was right after Hurricane Sandy and the snowstorm in NJ, so needless to say, it was very difficult to get in touch with vendors, many of whom were without power. I was able to quickly get a hold of Photo Illusion via email and they gave me their personal cell phone numbers just in case I needed anything leading up to the big day. They were incredibly professional throughout the process and on the day of, they were amazing and totally on top of things. We used the classic vintage photo booth and absolutely LOVE how the pictures came out! Thank you so much for making our day so special!
Our photo booth was a hit, and we LOVE the keep sake guest book. Our attendant was great, knowledgeable, and helped our guests out a ton.
Every step of the way was a pleasure in setting up the photo booth for my wedding with Photo Illusions. Specifically, working with Hayley was wonderful. she was very professional, personable and helpful up until the very end. It all turned out great with the final product and everyone had a blast at the wedding using it. I love having the scrapbook too, is a great keepsake. I am so glad we decided to do it. Thanks so much!!
I can't begin to express how wonderful my experience with Classic Photo Booth (Photo Illusion) was. From day one, everyone I worked with was responsive to emails, friendly and helpful.
Hayley was my main contact and she was such a delight. She was quick to answer of all of my questions, flexible and friendly. Hayley and Amanda were attendants at my photo booth on the day of my wedding and I received so many compliments on how attentive and nice they were. They spent the night tidying up my props table and helping guests leave us messages in our guestbook. I collected all of the props myself and the large majority of them were vintage, so having a nice looking props table was important to me- Hayley and Amanda did a great job of keeping the props table under control.
The photo booth itself was fantastic! My guests went crazy for it. We chose to have a vintage booth that printed black and white strips. This was the perfect choice for us as the theme of our photo booth was 1960s/Mad Men.
Having a photo booth at our wedding was one of the best decisions we could have made. People have not stopped raving about it.
Thank you to our friends at Classic Photo Booth for helping to make our wedding so memorable!
Hayley is an absolute pleasure to work with. I spoke to her from the beginning through booking and she was our attendant. Many of our guests commented on how nice she was, and at the end of the night we received our book that we truly enjoyed looking through and will provide great memories for years to come. Hayley was prompt, responsive and always willing to work to find a solution. We also had rain on our wedding day and they arrived with a tent, no questions asked. The delivery/set-up person was also extremely nice and helpful. If every vendor that we dealt with for our our wedding was as efficient, it would have been a breeze.
The photo booth was one of the most enjoyable things at the wedding. The company is very easy to work with! We got the guest book which you get to pick, the photo booth attendant who was the nicest girl and personalized photo booth skin which we designed on our own.
A photo booth was something we knew we wanted at our wedding from the very beginning stages of planning. I am so incredibly thankful that we were put in touch with Classic Photo Booth (photo illusion, llc). Hayley was super responsive and emailed with answers to all of my questions throughout the entire process. On the day of I knew we had made the right decision when our guests were finding it hard to come out of the photo booth! The service attendant, Danielle was sweet, helpful, and very professional. The photo-book she put together is one of my favorite things to look at from the wedding! I have been to many weddings with photo booths, but none of the photos can compare to the quality of these. If you want a stress free, reasonably priced (and by that I mean far less than most), and FUN photo booth company go with Photo Illusion!
We rented a photo booth from classicphotobooth.net for our wedding. Our biggest requirement was that the booth HAD to be authentic, just like something you might see at the boardwalk. Even though our favorite kind of photo booth is the "classic" style (with the actual film that takes a few minutes to get developed inside the booth), we decided that it would be far more practical to go with the "digital" booth. The digital booths have a few advantages over the classic style: (1) the photos get printed immediately, (2) two copies of each photo strip get printed out, and (3) you get digital copies of each photo. The digital booth ended up being the perfect choice for our wedding. This booth is the real deal -- an actual photo booth unit. It was surprisingly compact and tucked away nicely in the corner, which was a big plus in our small reception venue where space was at a premium. The digital booth's throughput was excellent -- 153 photo strips were taken in the course of 4 hours. Here's what we were most impressed with: the digital booth was very EASY to use. Our guests ranged from 5 years old to 95 years old, and no one seemed to have a problem figuring out how to use it.
As far as service goes: the people from classicphotobooth.net had the photo booth set up and ready to go as promised by the time we got to the reception. At the end of the wedding, the people from classicphotobooth.net whisked the booth out of the venue quickly, quietly, and efficiently. In fact, we didn't even see or hear them come and go.
Overall, the photo booth was a smash hit with our guests! We had a line of guests at the photo booth all night, and people are still talking about how much fun it was. It was a blast looking through our scrapbook of photos after the wedding. We would highly recommend classicphotobooth.net to anyone looking for a great photo booth at their wedding or event.
We had a photo booth at our recent wedding that was provided by Photo Illusion, LLC. The service was incredible! From the day I contacted the company the staff was great and so professional. Always responded to my questions promptly. The gentleman that worked the booth the night of our wedding was so polite. Everyone had such a good time taking the pictures! I highly recommend contacting Photo Illusion if you are considering getting a photo booth for an event. Thanks. Allie
This photobooth company was very responsive to all of our questions along the way. The woman who helped us throughout our wedding planning process even sent us attachments to compare quality of photos and answer all my inquiries. In addition, they were able to accommodate our budget and included small things into our package that made a huge difference (scrapbook as guestbook, website and CD to view all photos from booth). We are very happy with our photos and were pleased with the service from Photo Illusions!
My husband and I had a vintage Mad Men themed wedding, and the photo booth from Photo Illusion/Classic photo booth was a fantastic touch to our theme. All of our guests had an amazing time in the booth and it was well worth it. This was an affordable take away gift for our guests, that would not wind up in the junk drawer. Facebook was scattered with photo strips from our wedding. Our guests also loved that they were able to go into the booth as many times as they wished. It was really special that we were able to get a cd of all the images, access to their online gallery, as well as actual pictures in a scrapbook the attended constructed during our wedding. This also acted as our guest book. It is wonderful to look through it and see everyone's personalities and the great time they had. They also brought props to liven up the pictures.
As for the business side of the rental- my questions were answered immediately, they were able to match other competitive pricing, and I was able to create my own logo for the bottom of the photo strip. I was also given the choice of what booth i wanted to rent as well as if i wanted to give my guests a choice in b/w and/or colored photos.
I have absolutely no complaints and have referred them to many of my friends who are getting married within the next couple years. Thank you Photo...
We loved having the classic photo booth at our wedding!! It was a big hit for all. We love and treasure having such fun photos of family and friends from the day.
The gentlemen who supervised the booth couldn't have been nicer. They were pleasant and professional and excellent representatives of your company.
We had our wedding reception at a lovely location overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and the CLASSIC photo booth was a way to mix the old feel of growing up going to the beach with my family and friends and hoping in one of the those at the end of the day!! We just LOVED the real old fashion photo booth, the pictures were in black and white, came out wet, and were awesome. All generations from young to old loved the photo booth and it made for the perfect reception gift, not some silly thing that friends and family will never use. I got so many compliments on having the "real" "not cheesy" photo booth :) And the scrap book at the end was and awesome touch!!
Everyone at the wedding keeps talking about how great the photo booth was, we are so glad we decided to have one! Every step of the way leading up to the wedding Hayley who was assigned to manage my event was so responsive and helpful. Hayley and her team went above and beyond making me feel confident the photo booth would be perfect for our big day, even up until days before when questions came up. We would highly recommend to anyone looking for a photo booth to go with Photo Illusion, LLC -- the service alone cannot be matched!
I rented a classic photo booth. I loved it, and it was a great success with my guests. The staff is super helpful and very accommodating. I'm so happy I chose to rent a photo booth from this company.
I had a photo booth custom wrapped to match our wedding invitation - it came out amazing.
Incredibly accommodating and professional. All e-mails were answered the same day! Photobooth was a big hit at the wedding and the attendant was very friendly.
My guests loved the photobooth!!

What a huge hit the photo booth was at our daughter's wedding. Your company was a pleasure to work with before and after the wedding. The attendant was professional and helpful throughout the evening. I didn't even notice the the set up or breakdown. Everyone enjoyed the having photos taken and the best part is having the scrapbook to keep. I highly recommend your company. Thank you for providing a special touch to a special day. Linda
This was one of the best, easiest services I have ever purchased. The classic black and white "old school" photo booth was a great success. It was my gift to my sister and her husband for their wedding and they LOVED IT!!! Not to mention ALL the guests. There was never not a line for the photos and they came out perfect. HIGHLY recommended. Our attendant was so professional and accommodating. Everyone should have this to remember such a special event.
If you are looking for a photobooth for your event, Photo Illusions is the way to go! We had our wedding on 6/26/11 at the Bourne Mansion in Oakdale, NY, nearly 100 mile away from their offices and they were ontime and very professional. Hayley is the best. She put up with our pestering in the beginning, designed a beautiful logo for us, and even put up with our rowdy guests during the wedding! As for the booths itself, the picture quality came out great. The photo album was beautiful. We didn't even have to remind them to send out the CD to us. It came 3 days after our wedding just like they promised! Great job guys!
I knew I wanted to add something special to our wedding from the beginning of the planning process. The chocolate fountains, ice martini louges and fireworks had all been done by friends, so I went searching for something unique. When I asked our photographers if they could provide a photobooth, they recommended checking out Photo Illusion, and I am so incredibly happy I did. The photoboth was a HUGE success! We chose the classic vintage boardwalk style booth with black and white pictures (no logo.) Our guests couldn't get enough! All night from young to old, our friends and family snapped pictures - 1 strip for them to keep and 1 strip for our scrapbook. Everyone absolutely loved it! I am so glad I went with the photobooth scrapbook instead of a traditional guestbook. It kept us laughing and "awwwing" at the picture strips and messages for hours. It is truly a priceless keepsake of our event. A special thank you to Kristina who was super easy to work with, kind and respectful to us and our guests, and kept the photobooth running smoothly all night. I highly recommend this company - 2 enthusiastic thumbs up!
I wanted something special for my daughter's wedding and the old-time photo booth fit right in with the fun-casual atmosphere of the event. I hesitated because of the expense but in the end it was well worth it. It was a big hit and everyone said how special it was. As a bonus everyone got their own picture AND the bride and groom got a wonderful photo book of all the people that took pictures. The delivery was prompt, the set-up easy and the operation very professional and accommodating. I highly recommend Photo Illusions classic photo booth.
All the folks at photo illusion were amazing. I found their site doing a google search and from the initial quote request (which they responded to within an hour) on, they were just so on top of it. We got exactly what we looking for. A classic photobooth that our guests could use to their hearts content, an online photo album of all the pictures to share with our guests and a cd of all the pictures to keep. The booth was set up exactly how and where we wanted it and was removed immediately after our reception was complete. Our guests were able to make a guest book with the help of our awesome photobooth attendant, Hayley. I would highly recommend photo illusion's services to anyone looking for a nice old-school addition to their event.
Kristina and Haley at Photo Illusions were very helpful. We hired a digital photobooth for our wedding. It was a huge hit. It is so worth the money, all the guest really enjoyed them. The digital photobooth is so fast, there was never a long wait. Photo Illusion also allowed me to break up the five hour block which was so nice of them. We wanted an hour break when dinner was being served. The whole experience was wonderful. They arrived on time. The setup and breakdown was so smooth, I wasn't even aware of them coming or going. I would highly recommend Photo Illusions for any party. We look forward to using them again. Patricia & James
I worked w/ Kristina and she was awesome! Very responsive and put up with last-minute venue change and time slot change. My guests had a blast w/ the photobooth and the scrapbook makes me smile everytime I look thru it. Thanks for making the wedding that much better!!
The photobooth was the best idea!! Everyone seemed to have a lot of fun. We also got to keep a copy of everyone's pictures and they got a copy. We decided to get a photobooth at the last minute instead of doing favors and I was really happy we did.
Photo Illusions a.k.a Classicphotobooth.net provided our guest with endless entertainment throughout our reception. Hayley in the office was a pleasure to deal with, while Max was very flexible with meeting our needs for the event. The booth attendant was helpful and polite to all our guests. Renting the photo booth for our wedding reception was a great decision, the guest had a blast using it while providing them and us (bride & groom) with wonderful mementos.
We really wanted a traditional (not digital) photo booth at our wedding reception, and Photo Illusion was one of the only companies who could fulfill this for us. They were a bit of a challenge to deal with via phone and email, but the overall result was great, and people had a lot of fun with the photo booth at our reception. The scrapbook they made (of the images) is also a great keepsake in addition to our traditional wedding album.
I am so glad that I got the idea to have a photobooth! I was so much fun and they were great priced. We had an attendant there to run it and it looked like a real photobooth not just a curtain around in a circle. And it was a lot better priced than the fake ones. I highly recommend them, they are the best!!
We rented a 1960s photo booth from them, and it was one of the best things we did at our wedding! The staff were awesome, both setting up and manning the booth/distributing photos to guests. Our guests had the best time taking their own pictures, and at the end of the night we got a CD with all of our pictures on it.
I'll admit I was very, very nervous that Photo Illusions- a company I knew nothing about and had seen no references for- would actually provide all that they promised. Well, they did!! They responded quickly to e-mails, the photobooth arrived right on time, the attendant was professional and helpful, and the photobooth was a HUGE hit with our guests! I'd highly recommend renting a booth from classicphotobooth.net.

Makeshift digital machines and why to avoid them!
What is a pipe and drape photo booth?
This is a new term for a, "Photo Booth," that is simply made out of pvc pipe or metal piping surrounded by some kind of drapery, whether it be velour or otherwise.
They use a store bought digital camera connected to a home use printer that is often placed outside the set-up on a table. I don't know about you, but I'd say this is a bit tacky. Even more tacky, is the circus looking velour curtain set-up. Most importantly, because of the low quality printing equipment that is used, the pictures taken in these booths WILL FADE after about a month.
OUR digital machine is not made of pipes and drapery, but rather, is a legitimate photo booth that uses a commercial use camera and a top of the line dye-sublimation printer to produce TWO photo strips per session on high quality photo paper.
These companies try to use their convenience, and ability to easily get into any location as a selling point.
We always communicate directly with the venue weeks in advance to find a way to get our equipment into the building. In 15 years, we have almost never had a situation where we cannot get the photo booth, classic or digital, into a venue. It is our years of experience and attention to detail as far as our preparation goes that allows us to make these machines just as versatile as the pipe and drape set-up that gets tossed into some guys mini-van and brought to your wedding.
These companies have hidden charges!
Additional fees for idle time, additional fees for delivery, additional fees depending upon how close to the event you make your reservation, additional fees for duplicate pictures, and sometimes additional fees for more than a certain number of photos taken.
OUR INCREDIBLE PRICING for our DIGITAL machine is at 1250 for 4 hours, with FREE DELIVERY to Philadelphia, NYC, most of NJ and Los Angeles includes the following:
1. Delivery & Set-up
2. 4 Hours of Photo Booth Time
3. UNLIMITED pictures
4. FREE CD
5. FREE LOGO
6. Attendant for the full duration of your event to assist your guests.
*Additional time can be purchased at a rate of $100/hr, we also offer a scrapbook with the digital for $50.
**We also have our classic photo booth**
Lastly, the owner of Photo Illusion, LLC. has been in the photo booth business for more than 20 years. We advise you to, please, go with a company who is established and knows what their doing as opposed to someone who figured out a cheap way to do something, "similar," to what the professionals do.
More Frequently Asked Questions
1. When was this company founded?
Our photo booth company was founded in 1995, and since we've had many satisfied customers!
2. What's the difference between the digital photo booth and classic photo booth?
The classic photo booth is not a digital machine. Our Photo Booth develops through a photo process a to produce a strip of 4 pictures (color or black/white) with 4 different poses. The poses are seperated by a few seconds and singles, couples as well as groups can join in the picture. Color has an option of blue, red or white backgrounds.Black/White also has an option of a grey scale background. The classic photo booth can develop up to 7 pictures at the same time with a new person able to take a picture every 25-30 seconds.
The digital photo booth prints pictures using a top of the line dye-sublimation printer. It also had an option of black and white and color- the user selects their preference via on-screen instructions. Since it uses a printer, the quality of pictures is different from the classic photo booth. The digital also uses photo paper as opposed to the 40mm film that the classic machine uses. The digital photo booth can only develop one picture at a time; however prints in duplicates automatically.
Either way, the pictures come out great and everyone always has fun!
