There’s good news and there’s bad news. Holding a private event means that you’re in charge. You have no corporate overlords with strict rules to worry about. The bad news? If everyone has a bad time, you’re completely responsible. Yikes.

But don’t get us wrong—planning a memorable and enjoyable private event doesn’t have to be an intimidating process, even if you’ve never done it before. Our recommendation: book a photo booth from Shutterbug Photo Booths. A photo booth is not only a great way to give guests something to do—it’s also a way to incorporate some fun into your event and leave everyone with a little memento to remember their evening.

If the phrase “hire a photo booth” never entered your imagination, the process might seem a bit confusing. But we’ve got a few simple steps for making it happen:

  • Contact us. Really, it’s as easy as that. Either scroll to the bottom of this page for a phone number or contact us at Shutterbug Photo Booths and say, “Hey—how do I make this happen?” We’ll be happy to answer all of your questions.
  • Pick your photo booth type. This is not a one-size-fits-all approach. Every private event is different. If you have a massive event and need lots of entertainment, you might opt for something like the classic photo booth, which is an attraction in and of itself. To add a touch of glamor to your party, you might even go with a “red carpet” experience in the form of a Step & Repeat booth. Don’t be overwhelmed—there’s really no “wrong answer” here. Just find the one that’s right for your event.
  • Get ready! Think about where the booth might go and make sure that you have the space and permission to make it happen at your private event.

That’s it. Your next private event doesn’t have to be a drag—and you don’t have to tear your hair out coming up with great ideas, either. Just turn over some of the work to Shutterbug Photo Booths and we’ll provide a photo booth that comes with an easy set-up and take-down so you can focus on the fun.


  • We are sooooooo glad we decided to get a photobooth for our wedding! Us and our guests had so much fun with it! Greg was seriously amazing to work with and we are so happy with our experience. He was very responsive and helpful and accommodating to our timeline for the day and worked well with us throughout the planning process. He worked hard throughout the night putting together our guestbook and we are very happy with how it turned out. It's so fun to have photos of all of our guests as a keepsake from the best night of our lives. I would highly recommend Greg for your day!

  • Shutterbug Photo Booth was an absolute blast at our wedding. It was the perfect added touch to make the day that much more memorable. They were fun and easy to work with and everyone enjoyed themselves using the booth. Not only did we get a fabulous book with all the photos, each individual got their own copy...all of this for a very affordable price. Cannot wait to find a reason to use them again :)

  • We had Shutterbug Shutter Stand at our wedding and the pictures turned out amazing! The attendant was great with our guests and showed them how to use the booth as well as putting together our photo guest book! Props were awesome as well! Highly recommended!!!!

  • All of our guests were able to take funny pictures and write in our photo booth book that we still look back on and laugh about with all the funny pictures and comments. Many of our guests commented on how much fun they had at the wedding and how much the entertainment made an impact on their experience. Shutterbug Photo Booths is not just a camera against a wall, either! He had a fully enclosed photo booth that had props and different themes and backgrounds that you could set on the touchscreen inside. Very professional and high-end photo booths that I would highly recommend for anyone looking for a little extra fun at their event.

  • We had the photobooth be our guestbook and that was a great way to get everyone in it! We had the really young kids in it, our friends, and even grandmas and grandpas go in it more than once! Everyone could leave a little note and it was so much fun to look at it the next day and laugh at everyone's faces and all the props. We are so glad we rented it, it was totally worth it!
