Adding Value to Your Wedding — how to get a quality product at a reasonable price . . .


The old adage is true, “[Y]ou get what you pay for.”  In an increasingly demanding world of commerce, competitors reconfigure price structures to seem attractive to consumers.  But what exactly are you getting for those prices, and are there any hidden or additional costs.  The most widely sought question from customers is just that – the bottom line – how much is it to rent out a photo booth for Albany New York photo booth rentals?

When most area residents are asked why they chose to live in Albany, Saratoga Springs, Schenectady, Clifton Park, Delmar, Guilderland, Bethlehem, Saratoga Springs, Wilton, Lake George, Malta, Ballston Spa, New York or anywhere in the Capital land or Capital District, the answer of “it’s affordable” is usually intertwined with their answer.  So why does it seem that planning a sweet 16, wedding, corporate event, holiday party, bar mitzvah or prom is so expensive?  And why do your quotes for photobooths differ so much not only in price, but also in offerings?


Sure, mall photobooths will likely charge you $5.00 per photostrip.  So with a wedding of 150 people, shouldn’t a photobooth cost, $650?  Photobooths are very expensive machines, and the cost of delivery, set-up and materials contribute to your price.  At a mall, your guests can only have one photostrip.  At your event, your guests can return as many times as they would like to enjoy funny, wacky party booth poses.  Furthermore, the quality of a photostrips from Capital Region Photo Booths is far superior than mall photobooths, and much faster at only 6 seconds per photostrip!  This, plus unlimited photostrips, a customer service oriented attendant at your event, props, and travel – this is where your cost originates, which is still more affordable than typical party favors, with the added value of entertainment.  In addition to providing Upstate Photo Booths, Capital Region PhotoBooths even provides photo booth rentals and wedding booths to Pittsfield, MA, Lenox, MA, and Cambridge, MA.  Average Albany photo booth rentals start around $895.00, depending on the size of your event, your needs, and the duration of services.



So, are you looking to hire a photo booth rental in Albany New York or Saratoga Springs New York to provide you an authentic photo booth at your wedding? Many photo booth companies will provide Albany Photobooths and Saratoga Photobooths at what seems like barebones prices.  But what are you actually getting for your money?

REAL DEAL? Many companies will NOT provide you an authentic vintage photobooth – we do! Many companies provide what is known as an “open air photobooth” or a “pipe and drape” photo booth.  At Capital Region Photo Booths we provide authentic vintage photobooths for your affair or private event.  We are also the exclusive provider of 2×8” photostrips, the true size of the 70’s, 80’s 90’s and beyond.  Most companies print a 2×6” photostrip with small photographs, or a 4×6” print and they have you cut the photostrip at your event. The approximate size of our photobooths: Footprint: 86″ high, by 71″ long, by 34″ wide.  Don’t be fooled by imposters – there is only one Capital Region PhotoBooths for you photo booth rental in albany ny, the Capital Region, and beyond.

Hidden costs? With the exception of sales tax, our prices are all inclusive. That means you will never be charged per photostrip, you will never be charged for travel, and you will never be charged extra for things like Props.  Most of our pricing structures even include magnetized photostrips, or cd-roms, or photo guest books!  Most competitors charge you extra for these additional items.  A price that is hundreds less could cost you hundreds more by the time you finally get everything you want.

PROPS?  At Capital Region PhotoBooths we pride ourselves on the most expansive prop box in the Capital District.  Our prop boxes are stuff to the brim, exploding with boas, tiaras, sunglasses, hats, masks, hand held props, and so much more.  We travel the world to find the best props for your event!  And, we include this FOR FREE in our pricing! Ask the competitor – most will charge you more for props, or they will provide sub-par props for your guests. We pride ourselves on ONLY the best! See our props here!

Photo Booth Attendant?  So what happens if a photobooth runs out of film? A photobooth attendant is present at EVERY event.  Ask competitors if they provide this, because most do not.  And our attendants are provided a rigorous 6-month training.  Are the other photobooth guys trained as well our attendants?  I will bet they are not.

Hollywood Lights? We include oscillating Hollywood search and rescue lights on the top of EVERY photobooth!  Just like the red carpet premiers, we make sure your event is red carpet worthy as well. You deserve it for your celebrity event!

Exterior Monitor? To capture all the fun, our photobooths are equipped with an exterior monitor built into all of our photobooths.  You too can enjoy grandma’s goofy poses or zany antics even while you are outside the booth!

Photo Guest books, CD-ROMs and photostrips magnets? We offer ALL of these! And more! Out photo guest books are post-bound and some of the nicest in the industry. We even offer mosaic prints after the event!

Backgrounds? Some photobooth companies offer unique patterned backgrounds. If the photobooth is authentic, you shouldn’t see the patterns of the background, because you will see your face instead.  Think about it — is your photobooth rental for a neat designed background, or for your faces and gestures?  At Capital Region PhotoBooths, we offer an additional service called “curtain call,” which allows you to pick the color of your background. This is very different than a patterned background.  Instead, if you have a pink party, you may want a pink background.  If you have a club theme, you may want a neon green background.  We strive for customer service, and this one way we offer this for you.

Choice of photo booths? We offer three types of booths: Our “Vintage Throwback Booth”, our “RETRO 80’s booth” and our soon to be released “Bridal Booth.”
