1. Rent a Photo Booth- Do Not DIY
Setting up a DIY photo booth or a simple photo opp for guests to use their phones might seem like a great way to save a few bucks on an already pricey event, but the money you save is rarely worth the extra hassle. When you do a Photobooth yourself, you are responsible for everything: setup/takedown, troubleshooting, breakdown, and making sure the printer has enough paper.

3. Cheap Photo Booth Rentals
This is one of the most important photo booth rental tips because the company that you use can have a huge impact on your photo booth experience. A low price rental for a photo booth could indicate a newer (less experienced) company, poor quality cameras, a bargain package with nothing else included, or even a lack of insurance. Stay away from any company that seems to charge way less than the competition. As you collect quotes, make sure to ask what is included with every rental so you can compare the packages for each photo booth rentals.
Most commonly rented photo booths are four-hour durations, however, we do offer photo booth rentals as little as 2 hours. Rather than starting your rental period at the beginning of your event, think about your timeline first. Most people choose the last 4 hours of the event. For example: If you’re planning a wedding, you might have the photo booth rental start halfway through dinner rather than the start of the cocktail hour. You won’t have to pay for an unused hour or add-on an additional hour just to keep the party going when you choose a wedding package with one or more of the other services we offer. However, if you know your reception is going to go late, consider paying for some additional time. Most photo booth companies have an additional charge for an hour past the official rental period. The extra cost might be less than you thought and well worth it.
5. Get The Memory Book
It’s always nice to rent a photo booth to capture extra images and entertain your guests, However, how do you get to enjoy all those photos taken if the guests are taking them home? Sure we will provide a USB drive at the end of your event so you have the digital photos, it’s not quite the same as having a memory book. Have the Photo Booth attendant place a copy of each photo into your memory book and the guests can sign or leave a message.

Consider where your rented photo booth is located within your event space, it can have a huge impact on you and your guest’s experience. You want your guests to use the photo booth more and get the most out of your investment. If possible make sure your photo booth is in the same room as your main event that’s taking place. That being said, keep the booth close enough to the action that it won’t be neglected all night.

Some photo booths offer physical photos only and some offer both digital and physical photos. Some photo booths like our modern booth even offer animated GIFs or slow-motion videos. With digital images, you’re able to share to Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, send an email, or text.
