Photo booth rentals have been growing in popularity since they were first available for rental about a decade ago. We know that having a photo booth at your event will provide numerous positive enhancements to the overall experience of your event. The main question you probably have is how can I afford renting a photo booth or how much does a Michigan photo booth cost? You’ll most likely be surprised to discover that renting a photo booth is something that you can afford.

Michigan Photo Booth Cost

When looking for photo booth rental companies make sure to look over all the different packages that they offer. Chances are that the rental company will have a package which suits your event just right. Some companies offer different types of photo booths for rental. Their classic (first generation) booth generally cost more to operate and thus have a higher cost for rental. These first generation booths may also have additional requirements of your venue due to their bulkiness and their greater weight. This type of booth will most likely cost between $900 and $1500 for its rental for four hours. The newer (digital) booths are easier to maintain and in turn their rentals are less expensive than the classic booths. You also don’t need to worry about the digital booths easily fitting into your venue because these booths weigh considerably less and are far less bulky than the classic style booths. For a digital booth you can expect anywhere from $650-$895 for the same time frame with most companies. The more reputable companies are competitively prices due to high demand in the market. Then again, they also have the coolest booths in market.

Like buying anything thing else you need to be careful of the fine print when breaking down the photo booth rental cost. Some companies charge additional fees for their services or have different ideas of what is included in your rental period. Your photo booth company should never try to charge for delivery (if it is a local event) or count the set-up/tear down of the booth as part of the contracted hours to be worked. Now while you may think you got a deal on a 4hr booth rental today, just how much of a deal is it really gonna be when they use the first hour to set-up and the last to tear down. Now you thought you were paying for 4hrs of photos, but all you ended up with was two hours of photos and a live show of an attendant assembling then disassembling your booth. The rental company should provide you with the amount of time you have paid for and do the setup/ tear down outside of that time. The standard photo booth rental should also include an photo booth specialist to set up and dismantle the booth. This attendant should also be expected to be present throughout your event. If any issues arise he/she can fix the problem very quickly. Your guests will most likely have a couple of questions for the photo booth attendant to answer. The attendant being present also further assures that your guests will have a great time at your event.

Regarding overall price for the photo booth rental, many vendors offer discounts for the slower season (winter months) and for weekday rentals. Just ask your photo booth company if they have any current specials or discounts which you qualify for. After all, it never hurts to ask.

    I want to have a photo both at my grad party and from I want I have been on your website I like what I am reading, but I have to know the price. How much would it cost for a few hours like 3 or 4 hours. It says that you want to save us money, but I couldn’t find a price. So if you could let me know the price that would be great, because I really want a photo booth. Thank you so much.
