I found that it’s way cheaper to have the photographer set it up for you. It costs anywhere from $1,000-$2,000 to rent one, but our photographer is charging us $600 to set everything up for us and provide a disk of the photos for us.

The only downside of having your photographer do it is that you won’t get an immediate print-out of the photos. 

The cheapest option would be to completely DIY – that would just take a lot of extra effort! 🙂

We actually won’t have anyone manning ours – the photographers are going to set up a digital camera with a self-timer and just let everyone have at it. Hopefully it works out, but this way we’ll have both of our photographers taking photos of the reception, PLUS the photobooth – my only worry right now is that no one will use it, haha!

We had one and it was a total hit. I think you can’t go wrong with either the photographer’s booth or a separate one. We had an actual photobooth and people love going in and closing the lil’ curtain. Somehow they thought that made it private even though their photos were displayed on the side of the booth for everyone to see. It was awesome to watch and the perfect favor!

We’re using Our Labor of Love’s Smilebooth. I think they’re regularly like 1200$, but it’s a part of our OLoL package, so I don’t ‘member what it actually costs.

But the smilebooth rocks. I’m sure you can ghetto-rig/DIY your own photobooth with a nice cam and a clicky thing.
