    Our DJ is $1,200. We aren’t do a photobooth, but we were quoted $2,000 for it.

    DJ is $728.75

    Photobooth is $300 arranged through our photographer (that was way lower than I found elsewhere – usually $600+)

    My cousin paid 1000.00 for her photobooth alone. I’m paying 575.00 for my DJ, no photobooth.

    I was at the wedding show recently and photobooths were $1400!  If you can get both for $1200, I think you’re getting an awesome deal!

    Our DJ was $1800 and we didn’t have a photobooth.  Our DJ is a friend of Darling Husband and I and he was amazing (and he travelled with all of his equipment from GA to IN for us)!

    @missmichigan:  For Brooklyn, the photobooths alone (for the actual booth that prints, not a photographer set-up) run between $800-$1100.

    We got our DJ as a recommendation through our venue, and he was a (relative) steal for $400.

    That’s not a bad price for both of them.

    I found our DJ on Craigslist. He’s a college student so he’s only $250. We have talked to several references and seen him at work. He’s awesome, has his own equipment and lighting. We are building our own photobooth so its only going to cost us around $300 to $400.

    I’m paying 700 for my photobooth and 795 for my DJ (includes uplighting) and that was after some haggling so $1400 sounds reasonable to me

    Our DJ is $1300 and includes uplighting and dance floor lighting for 5 hours… He was one of the better priced DJs that I could find… He’s getting a photobooth, but hasn’t decided upon pricing yet. But, like other girls said, its usually about $1k+ for the photobooth alone in Northern California.

    Sounds about right!  Our photobooth was $795 and we were quoted $500 for our DJ, no uplighting.

    When i first started looking at DJ’s i was quote 1195 for 4 hours and 795 for the photobooth.

    I got a fantasitc DJ for 600 and Fiance and I built our own photobooth and used the http://www.sparkbooth.com app. works perfectly probably cost us about $150.00 to make, including software.
