When it comes to photo booth rentals for weddings, the question we get asked the most, is "how much are your photo booth rentals for a wedding?" This is much easier to answer than the "how much do wedding djs cost?" Why? Simply because DJ and photo booth events are far different and have very different equipment and needs.
We can't speak for every company, but we will tell you about how our company does things and give you an idea of what other companies do, as well. Simply put, yes, some companies may charge more for weddings, than other events. The bottom line for us: NO, we don't charge more for weddings versus other events! So let's answer the photo booth question, now.
These are just some of the many factors that go into the pricing of photo booth services. Other factors that may influence photo booth pricing are: your market area (a wedding in Manhattan will be far more expensive than a wedding in Lubbock, Texas), the company's reputation and length of time in business (new companies, just starting out will always charge less, just to get the business), and many other factors. Be ready to discuss all of the above details with every photo booth company you contact.
One last word of advice: ALWAYS get a contract and read their reviews! If they don't provide you with a contract, don't do business with them! If they don't have any recent reviews or any reviews, be careful! Many companies will get bad reviews, and simply take down their business info from all sites, create a new business name, and start all over. They know the importance of reviews, and the impact of bad, recent reviews. so if they have no recent reputation, ask them why?
As shady as this sounds, it happens A LOT in our industry. :( We've gotten many calls from people who's DJ or photo booth provider took their deposit (often 50% of the fees) and vanished! This is TERRIBLE! We hate these calls and are glad to book with them because we know, without a doubt, we'll NEVER, I repeat, NEVER, do this! We will always be there at any event we book, ready to help everyone have an amazing time! Whether you book a DJ, photo booth, lighting, games, or any service, this is what we will do. We run our business with integrity because that's just who we are. We treat our clients the way we wanted to be treated when we were getting married, looking for our own wedding vendors.
As always, if you have any questions or need more info, feel free to contact us. If you're having a wedding or event in our area, be sure to visit our photo booth rental page! We're always happy to help, even if you're not booking with us!
