Disposable cameras are really a thing of the past in my opinion. There’s TONS of apps out now that let your guests take pics on their phones and they’re all compiled into one album through the app. . . also, i don’t know if you have an iPad, but there’s a photobooth app on there, as well – you can get a stand and backdrop relatively cheap. Or perhaps come up with a backdrop/setting of your own and maybe get one of your friends to take pictures of the guests with props? Then you can put all of the photos into an online album (shutterfly, for instance) where they can order them? Just some thoughts!

Don’t do the disposable cams.  Set up an area – make your own backdrop and props.  Have 1 camera (digital/ipad, etc.) and upload them all to one site with option to purchase so that your guests can get whichever ones they want.

you could probably hire a high school art student for little extra money to ‘run’ the photo booth for you and get everyone’s pics for the night.  set up a abckdrop with some props like other pp’s suggested.  If you need a camera can be rented for the same price you would be spending on disposable cameras, and your guests are more likely to partisipate!

I found photobooth coupons on livingsocial/groupon occasionally, can you check there?  If you do DIY it doesn’t have to be anything elaborate at all, I think people will have fun just taking pictures and having silly props.
