Did any of you have a photobooth at your wedding? If so, would you mind sharing how much it cost to hire?
We’re interested in getting one for our wedding reception but not sure how much we should budget for it or where to find a good deal in NYC.

@vivalagloria: from my little bit of research they are around $1000+ here in NYC and the quality/what they offer varies.

We’re all the way across the states in CA for our wedding, but anyway we’re paying around 1100 for 6 hrs. It includes 4 uplights, props, a photobooth attendant, unlimited entries for guests, 2 strips per entry, and at the end of the night we get a disc with all of the photos. This is not including a vendor meal @ about 15-20$ or tip @20%.

We’re on the other side of the country & extremely rural but when we looked at package pricing it was running anywhere from $500-$1,000 with the smallest priced package being for I think 2 hrs & 100 photostrips.
We didn’t want to deal with the time & photo limit and the huge cost so we are DIY-ing it as we can re-use it for events at our store as well & we already have most of the equipment (minus props & backgrounds).

i paid a lot less than (about half) the going rate but i negotiated it. it included the deluxe package with scrapbooked copies of all photos, an attendant, and all the props. we used shutterbooth. the service was awesome. the photos were posted immediately on their website and i received a a disc with all the photos.

Check out Groupon, they have had a couple photbooth ones here in the SF Bay Area. We got ours for $375 for two hours which includes attendant, setup, cleanup, 2 copies of photos, etc.

Oh that also includes tax & tip.

Depends on whether you are talking about an open air photobooth (essentially a camera, backdrop, and studio lighting), or an actual both both (small structure that 2-3 people can climb into). Open air booths take up more room, can accommodate more people, but don’t have that “real” photobooth feel to them. The other thing to factor in is whether or not printing is offered. Typically either setup can run you $500-2000 because there are so many variables to consider.

Definitely keep an eye out for groupon and living social deal. I rented our wedding photobooth through a groupon deal ONE MONTH before our wedding. It was $375 for 4 hr deluxe photo booth with props, attendant, & unlimited double prints. It was a hit at an amazing price.

@vivalagloria: I got a groupon for $595 for three hours (wedding in NY).. which was 1/2 off the original price. I might add an extra hour on, though.
