Southern Illinois Photo Booth Rental

My wedding is in a year and a half and one of the main things I have to have at my wedding is a photo booth. I've googled hours looking for somewhere closer than St. Louis. They charge a ridiculous fee for milage. Our wedding reception is near Carbondale & Marion. Any information or ideas would be GREATLY appreciated!

    I performed at a wedding at Von Jokab winery and I'm pretty sure the couple used Party Booths at their reception. The price is high, but it's comparable to many other photo booth rentals, and the quality was great and they advertise that they do not charge travel fees. I suggest checking out their website.

    Signature Photography offers a photobooth with their photography packages, also there is a photography place in Carterville on Division Street that I remember seeing at the bridal expo in Marion that had a really nice photobooth set up and they have a separate fee from their photography packages for it.  I can't remember their name but I imagine you could find them in the yellow pages knowing their address... good luck!

    Kristin Labotte Photography in Herrin does a photobooth 618-889-6738. She has a website and a facebook page. Signature photography in Johnston City 618-983-4444 also has a website and facebook. Hope this helps. Good luck with your planning!

    I've seen the PhotoBeast at events before. I'm not sure how far they travel, but you can always look into it.

    We went with Leigh Bedokis! She is AWESOME and their photobooth was exactly what we were looking for. She actually has a BOOTH, not a curtain with a photographer taking pics, they print out 2 pictures for no additional cost (one for guest, one for us), etc. I'm so excited!

     I would suggest you contact me, Kari, of Kari's Kreations.  My shop is in Lawrenceville, but we travel all around with our photobooths (we own 2).  I think you'll find our prices to be very competitive and, most likely, lower than others you have contacted.  Our photobooths are the real thing!  You get 2 strips printed immediately and are the perfect party favor for your guests.  You may call me at (812) 454-4032 or e-mail me at kariskre8tions@gmail.com for more information, including pricing.  You may also check out my new website that is still in the works, but has a recent wedding reception video - www.kariskre8tions.com

    Thanks,

    Kari, Owner

    We are based in the Fairview Heights area and would enjoy the opportunity to discuss specific pricing, including any mileage fees, and what all is included with our service.  Other companies charge you for the things that we include.   We have two Photobooths that can easily fit 10-12 people.  We built our booths so that the Bride AND her Bridesmaids can all get a group photo taken.  Feel free to visit our website, http://www.mcmusicdj.com to learn more about our services.  618-604-9671

    I was the father of the bride last fall and my daughter wanted a photo booth as well.  Just like you I felt the rates were outrageous.  I built one for her wedding and I had such a response I am now setting up a business and developing a professional quality photo booth system.  I will be at the wedding show at the Williamson County Pavilion in Marion, IL on Jan 15th, 2012, demonstrating the new system and booking dates.  My rates are HALF of whatthey Charge in St Louis and the end product is substantially better.  You will get a DVD of all the pictures taken.  I have incorpated "green screen capability......you pick the digital background and it prints seamlessly behiind your photos.  Unless I change the name between now and then the business is called IN YOUR FACE Photo Booth Entertainment.   You can contact me at rjbtca@yahoo.com and I can send you some pictures that I have taken at a couple other weddings I did in October.
