Wedding Photographer Cost: Party Booth NYC

Photo booths should really be under their own category, but I chose to categorize this post under wedding photographers, because it involves pictures. Wedding photo booths are all the rage these days after Apple’s Photo Booth software became popular. For those not familiar with wedding photo booths, it’s probably exactly what you think it is. A physical photo booth with a curtain or cloth cover is set up so that guests can go in (usually in groups) to have their picture taken. Nowadays, props are also provided (think giant sunglasses, fake mustaches, and Mr. Potato Head nose), and the photo booth will snap four pictures with a quick pause between each picture so that guests can contort themselves into the silliest of positions and wear the props in the most ridiculous manner possible. The pictures are then instantly printed so that guests can take them home. It really is great fun, and a fantastic photo booth operator is Party Booth NYC.

The Main Point

I do know the person who runs Party Booth NYC so my review may be considered bias, but from a value perspective, I honestly believe 100% that Party Booth NYC is as good a deal as you are going to get for a high-quality photo booth in NYC. I knew about Party Booth NYC, because I attended several weddings where they operated the photo booth and each time, the photo booth was outstanding. An attendant was always right by the photo booth in case any issues came up, they offered a good prop selection, and the pictures looked professionally printed. Best of all, of course, is their price.

At $800 for four hours and all pictures available to you electronically, that’s probably less than half of what you would be paying anywhere else. Admittedly, I didn’t do a vigorous price search since I knew from the beginning that any price less than $1,000 is generally VERY good. So when I Googled around for other photo booth operators in New York City and saw many were charging $1,500+, I wasn’t surprised. I will try to gather more price data regarding photo booth operators later on for better price comparison.

According to Party Booth NYC’s website, props cost an extra $100, a scrapbook costs $150, and an extra hour costs $125. No guarantees but from speaking with them personally, they are friendly and will work with you regarding these extras. For example, you may be able to get props for free if you book them way in advance etc. In the end, my fiancĂ©e and I decided not to get a photo booth for our wedding since we’re trying to cut back on spending, and we already hired a band to provide entertainment. It was a tough decision though since we think photo booths are great and if we did go one, it would be Party Booth NYC for sure.
