I think that photo booths are fun at weddings. I think they give guests something fun to do and are a good way for us to get pictures of more of our guests.
A friend of mine used a great service last year. Unfortunately, when I contacted them I learned that their rates are about $1,500. Yeesh. I was expecting to pay about 1/3 of that. The trouble is I attended an event recently with a bad photo booth. I didn't think that was possible but it was a fully automated booth that took multiple pictures (which no one was ever ready for) and the camera was mounted at a height that was too low for even me (a 5'6" girl), such that I had to kind of lean down into the photos. The props were pretty lame too. I also am not a fan of the strips/multi-shots so much as the single shot where you can put your event date and stuff on the bottom of every shot.
Anyway, thought you guys might have some wisdom on tricks to finding good photobooth services and what else I should look for. And, if you've used one, what did you learn? What would you do differently.
