What is a photo booth? Never seen one at a wedding before!

Hi, I've never seen a photo booth at a wedding...can someone quickly explain what they are, how much they generally cost and what it entails. When I think of photo booth I think of the ones I use to sit in when I was a kid, you'd make funny faces at it then it prints out like 4-5 pictures after. Not sure if that's what it is.

    Yep, that's exactly what it is. And typically, it spits out two copies of the 4-5 pictures, so the guest can get one and the other can go into the couple's guestbook. In some cases, it even keeps digital pictures which the couple can download later.

    And the photobooths used at weddings vary from the type of fully automatic ones you remember to ones that are just a photographer taking the pictures, perhaps with some silly props to get people in the mood. You can see the details of our DIY one at this link.

    You can go to google images and search for "wedding photo booth" to get some examples. the photo booth i might use, there is a photographer at it that takes the pics; three in short succession and they get uploaded to the internet..mine would be 400 for 3 hours..although they vary quite a bit, usually on the more expensive end, like 800-1000 for four hours.

    I booked one for 699 for 5 hours, including props, an attendant and a buch of extras too...I am going to use it for my guest book.

    Thanks I've found some in my area, I found one for $450 for four hours, it's regularly $650 but I'm getting married out of season so they offer a discount...sweet!

    Also found a dj for $400!

    I'm having a good day with vendors
