A unique and super fun addition to our wedding!
Such an awesome set up - the fact that it's a physical booth is so fun and the quality of the photos is so great!! The physical booth aspect really sets it apart from other similar 'photo booth' type services. Everyone loved it - weeks later and people are still raving about how great it was. Christina was great to work with and so kind.Sent on 11/09/2018

Swell Photobooth is so cool, it gave half my guests FOMO because they didn't get around to getting in! Christina was a dream to work with, incredibly flexible when my wedding ran over our expected end time, and the pictures we got back are absolutely priceless (and honestly? extremely flattering.) I can't wait to see the book, too! Overall an A+ experience!Sent on 06/01/2017
Swell Booth Photo Booth's reply:Haha, we love this! Thanks so much Kate and Patrick. You guys were great to work with and we are so glad we could be a part of your day---super cool being in the Atlantis room too!

Swell Booth was great to work with for my wedding. The booth's antique look is SO much more appealing and unique than the typical big black box, and it made a beautiful addition to my reception. It was a hit with all of our guests, young and old, and they all raved about the quality of the photos and how great Christina was working the booth. A ton of my guests actually still have their Swell Booth photos as their Facebook profile pics. Highly, highly recommend.Sent on 06/23/2017
Swell Booth Photo Booth's reply:Thanks so much Allie! We had a great time and loved being a part of your day!

We hired Swell Booth for my sorority's formal and I couldn't have been happier with the outcome! Christina and Dave were extremely helpful throughout the entire booking process as well as at the actual event. The pictures were high quality and the booth was a hit! Our formal theme was tropical and the props they brought for the booth were perfect. Thank you again for helping to make our event a success!Sent on 04/18/2017
Swell Booth Photo Booth's reply:Thanks Amanda! You guys were a fun bunch, thanks for having us!

Christina and Dave could not have made this experience any better! They were so accommodating and responsive from start to finish. Our guests LOVED the photo booth and we loved all of the extra personalized touches they included from the selection of props to the design of our photo strips and the creation of our scrapbook. This was not only a perfect addition to our wedding but has provided us with such fun memories to look back on for years to come!Sent on 11/11/2016
Swell Booth Photo Booth's reply:Thank you so much Whitney! I was so impressed with everyone staying crowded around the photo booth despite the chilly weather :) What an awesome night, we're so happy we could be a part of it!

I can not say enough positive things about Christina and Swell Booth. We planned our wedding from Chicago and booked Swell Booth based solely on the positive reviews on here and the website. From the get-go, Christina was a joy to work with. She asked all the right questions and put up with the fact that I changed my mind about timing a few times - all with a cheerful attitude that showed she truly loves with she does. She even used our website as inspiration when personalizing our photobooth strips, and the guestbook she made with our friends and family is absolutely adorable.Sent on 09/25/2016
On the day of, she was lovely, and quickly sent us the online gallery of our photos (before we'd even gotten back from our honeymoon!). The booth itself was perfect - mid-century style which fit into our vintage theme - and she provided a plethora of awesome props for our guests to use in their pictures. The pictures themselves were excellent quality - both based on the camera used and the photobooth's lighting. As a testament to the quality of her work, I, and quite a few of our friends have made the photobooth pictures their Facebook profile pictures - which I think speaks volumes ;-).. We're even using some of our own pictures from the photobooth on our "thank you" cards.
Seriously, book Christina and Swell Booth. We have a lot of photobooth companies in Chicago, and they don't hold a candle to Swell Booth. I feel so very lucky that we found them and that they could be a part of our special day!
Swell Booth Photo Booth's reply:Aw man, thanks so much Carmen and Josh! You two, along with your family and friends, were such a joy and pleasure to work with as well--by far one of my favorite weddings to be a part of :) Wishing you many days of happiness and dancing to 80s music!

This vendor is amazing. I have had experience with them from previous weddings and aboslutely plan on using them for mine! They have such a clean look and their photo quality is top notch. Don't fall for the competitors pricing... in the photo booth business, you definitely get what you pay for, and Swell Booth is worth every dime!Sent on 05/06/2015
Swell Booth Photo Booth's reply:Thanks Jessica! We're super duper looking forward to helping you guys celebrate your big day!

We love Swell Booth! They were such a hit at our festival and were extremely easy to work with! They made a custom backdrop for our photo booth with our sponsor's logo and it made for wonderful photos.Sent on 11/18/2015

Great props for the photo booth. Very professional and easy to work with. At the end of the night, they gave us an album of all the photos, which we loved looking through the next day and we know we'll cherish forever.Sent on 11/17/2015

Swell Booth, Dave, and Christina were amazing to work with for our wedding. The photo booth was an absolute hit, and most importantly one of the highest quality and nice-looking photo booths we and our guests have ever seen. Numerous guests commented during and after the wedding regarding the quality of the photos and how professional Christina was in helping with photos and our scrapbook. We would highly recommend Swell Booth for any event!Sent on 05/22/2015
Swell Booth Photo Booth's reply:Thanks so much Matthew! And thank you for inviting us to be a part of your and Rachel's celebration--we really loved working with you, your family, and friends. Hope you guys had an awesome honeymoon!

Swell Booth was excellent to work with. Our guests really enjoyed being able to dress up and get their pics taken in the photo booth. Everyone from the children to the older couples commented how much fun they had getting their pictures taken. They really added another dimension to the typical after dinner festivities, especially for those who don't like to dance. The compilation book each person posted a few pics and some choice words in was such a treat to read on our honeymoon. I would highly recommend Swell Booth.Sent on 01/24/2015
Swell Booth Photo Booth's reply:Thank you so much! We really appreciate it and glad we could help you and your friends/family have a great time!

We loved, loved, loved Swell Booth! The booth was so cute, the props were adorable, it was the hit of our wedding :) The representatives that were on site the day of were so sweet and helpful – they even stayed an extra half hour. The memory book was SO cute – it’s better than any guest book you could buy! I’m SO glad we went with Swell Booth!Sent on 09/17/2015

Swell Photo Booth is fantastic! Their set up is so unique and gorgeous for a reception. Christina and David were wonderful and easy to work with, quick to respond to inquired and questions, and worked so hard the day of! The photo booth wasn’t empty the entire night, and they were working furiously to keep up with the scrapbook and refilling the photo paper. Our guests really enjoyed this addition and it was perfect for the older generation who didn’t want to dance the entire evening but wanted something to do. The props that they provide are wonderful and you are able to provide some of your own as well if you want some additional/specific ones. They make a chalkboard sign customized to you and they also customize the photo strips to your wedding! They truly go above and beyond any of the other photo booth rentals that I looked at and their set up is so much nicer! Plus, they are willing to do outdoor events, which was nearly impossible to find. I highly recommend them!Sent on 07/01/2014
Swell Booth Photo Booth's reply:Thank you so much for your kind words! We had such a lovely time working with you and helping you, and your friends and family celebrate your special day. All the best to you two!

We had their booth at our wedding and it was a really really big hit with everyone, old and young. The photos came out great, it was a great centerpiece of the night and we still look at the photos now. The booth is great, the props were great, they were great. I don't know what more to say. Don't hesitate for a minute in getting this booth!Sent on 05/05/2015

Swell booth may be a little pricey, but it is really worth it! I can't explain how much fun it was to have at the wedding and how much our guests enjoyed the photo booth! There was a line to take photos the entire night! The two attendants were as nice as could be. We looked at some other photo booth options, but Swell Booth is definitely the best price for what you get and it also is the most authentic looking in it's style. It's actually a booth and not a weird white floating thing with a sheet as a background. They also create a guestbook for you where people put a copy of the photo strip and write a little note which might be the best part. To see the funny photos our guests took and see the sweet note they left was the best part! We were laughing for days, plus you get digital copies online basically the next day--in both strip form and full frames of the individual photos. In addition, they put cute artwork at the bottom of the strip which is a nice personal touch. Overall I want another excuse to work with them again!Sent on 06/21/2017
Swell Booth Photo Booth's reply:Thanks Rayanne! We absolutely loved being a part of your wedding--you all did such an awesome job and we enjoyed working with you and Dan, along with your friends and family. If you find that excuse to work together again, we'll be there!

Swell Booth was amazing! We are so happy we chose them for our wedding. They were professional and the booth was top quality. We had so many compliments from our guests. They had a blast with all the props and the scrapbook is such a fantastic keepsake. Christina was very professional and easy to work with. I would definitely choose them again if I had to do it all over!Sent on 09/10/2017
Swell Booth Photo Booth's reply:Thank you Jessi and Matt! I'm so glad we could be there to help you all celebrate, you guys were great!

We had the Swellbooth Photobooth at our wedding this past June. Overall, it was a wonderful experience. The day-of, they were fantastic, and all of the guests had a blast! I love that it is an actual photobooth that you enter and then press the button – not just a camera and a backdrop. The props they supply are also great! Our guests loved the photo strips, and we have seen many hung up in bedrooms, in offices, and on refrigerators in the months since! We really wanted a wedding favor that people would enjoy, and this turned out to be just the absolute perfect thing (and it doubled as entertainment too!). We also LOVED getting to look through the guest book and the online gallery as well! We would definitely recommend them!Sent on 09/16/2018

My husband really wanted a photobooth at our wedding, and at first I was disappointed in our options because most seemed so large and –frankly – ugly. Swellbooth solved this problem by being compact and pretty and reminiscent of the Amusement Park photo booth we all love. The camera took a little getting used to, but everyone took some great photos and Christina put together a scrapbook of photo strips for us that she was able to hand to us right there at the end of the night. Everyone had a great time in the photo booth and were posting their photo strips on social media, etc. We also got digital proofs of all the photos, which were extremely high resolution. Christina was not pro-active about organizing things such as the invoice, but was kind, personable and ran the photo-booth well. She was extremely flexible and accommodating regarding our late start time. We were very glad to have them at our wedding and our guests had a ton of fun using the booth.Sent on 12/31/2017

The photo booth was a big hit and everyone loved it. I do wish we had more time in it, but with everything going on in our day we didn’t have much time to spare. Great company.Sent on 09/30/2017
