Photo Booth Rental companies allow a person to rent a photo booth for a short period of time (usually in hours) for a fee. Photo booth rentals have become popular in the United States primarily for wedding receptions along with a growing number of other public and private events. In addition to the photo booth and the printing of unlimited photo strips, rental companies usually include a photo booth attendant to service the photo booth and to help guests construct the guest book of photo strips. Online image hosting, compact disks containing the images and related merchandise are readily available.
The majority of photo booth rentals are for wedding receptions; however, they are have become popular for office parties, school dances, corporate events and advertising, and other parties. The photo booths provide entertainment, candid photography, guest favors and a personalized book of photos and guest messages. The photo strip guest book replaces the traditional guest book. In 2008, Google started tracking "photo booth rental" as a trend
Chemical photo booths
Employ a traditional chemical photography process to create a single photo strip of either 3 or 4 photos.
Digital photo booths
Most rental companies rent commercially available digital photo booths because they are easier to set up, more cost effective to maintain than their chemical counterparts, and digital imagery provides limitless merchandise opportunities. Output ranges from traditional (vertically-arranged vertical photos) to non-traditional horizontally-arranged, horizontal photos printed on a variety of sized photo paper.
Photo studio style photo booths
Also known as "Crazybooths" or "Memory Booths", some companies combine the concept of the traditional, machine photobooth with equipment normally used in a photography studio, including studio strobes, light modifiers, and full-sized backdrops. This approach to the photo booth concept provides a larger space for guests, handling up to 30 people at a time. With green screen technology it allows more interaction and allows the potential of action shots such as jumping, throwing, fighting, etc. Other elements of photo booth rentals remain the same (photo strip printouts, scrapbooking, crazy props, attendants, etc.).
