How much does it cost to hire a photo booth for your wedding?

Like any service prices for photo booths can vary from supplier to supplier.  And not making it easy, different suppliers offer different options, packages and prices.   And include or exclude many different items.  From experience in the wedding industry the cost will be different for many reasons

The cost to hire a photo booth is between €100 to €200 per hour , and generally most companies have a 2 or 3-hour minimum hire. Extra prints, backdrops, and custom artwork matching your wedding theme are popular add-ons.  And weekdays will have a discount compared to weekends.

Photo booths are a standard for many parties, weddings and corporate events.

You can remember passport photos in shopping centres. Photo booths have become more popular for events.

Photo booths are common at a wedding and couples are booking them early in the planning process.

And it is more than weddings that are booking photobooths.  Photo booths add fun to pretty much any type of social or private event.

Photo memories are a great gift to give to your guest.

You can hire a photo booth company to attend your event.  They will set up and operate a photo booth.  They will  provide guests with customised keepsakes in the form of personal prints. There maybe a limit on prints for the duration of the rental.  For example,  2 prints per session, 4 prints per session.  There maybe themed props & signs for guests to use in the photos.

The  average cost to hire a photo booth for a wedding ranges between €400 to  €600 or more.  Corporate events rates are higher because of the extra customisation and branding.

Hire time is a major factor in the total fee; longer rentals will command a higher price. Day of week and time of year can also affect costs with some companies.

Friday or Saturday night booth will be the standard price. Generally these nights are not discounted.  It’s considered prime time in the events industry.  If you don’t book at full price, someone else will. Weekdays are the quiet time’ for weddings and private parties. Great discounts are available during these periods. But a lot of corporate events will be booked in for weekdays which always demand a higher fee.

The type of photo booth you rent will also have an impact on cost.

Selfie Mirrors cost more to rent due to their size.  And the initial cost to buy is much higher than a standard photo booth.

Photo booths have different functionality.  Many have  customisable green screens, GIF and Boomerang creation.  And if they use a professional cameras it will also cost more.
