As a professional in the wedding and event services business, you can see trends as they happen each year, with weddings, quinceañeras, or other events. About three years ago, we noticed that people started adding photo booths to their weddings and events. Three years ago, it was just starting in our area (Austin and central Texas), and we’d see a photo booth at about 1 out of every 10 weddings or so. We didn’t offer it at the time, and we were not aware of any businesses, such as Rent My Wedding, that offered photo booth rentals. Since it was only at about 10% of the weddings that we did, we left it alone.

In 2015, we noticed that the trend started increasing, and so we started to research photo booth costs and the market prices for photo booth services in our area. Around summer of 2015, we decided to invest in one photo booth. It was expensive, but the investment certainly paid off. Today, we own and operate 3 photo booths, in addition to having 6 DJs, for events. If I would have known that I could simply rent a photo booth, I would have definitely offered it much sooner!
Now, you can do exactly that! You don’t have to spend thousands of dollars to have a photo booth! You can simply rent one from Rent My Wedding, for a mere fraction of the cost! If you see the demand increase, rent more! All you have to do is add the cost into your price and build your profit margin in. The set-up is very easy and your clients will love it! Photo booths are always a hit at every event! Today, we see photo booths at about 75% of our events. Now, if we have a need for a fourth photo booth, we’ll definitely rent one! You should, too! Contact Rent My Wedding, today!
The Photo Booth kit includes everything you need: Photo Booth machine, unlimited digital photos, live photo sharing via Email and Social Media, and 15 standard props. Plus, clients and guests can keep the photos they take at the event with an add-on printer kit!
