It’s Spotlight Day, where we introduce you to incredible Orlando wedding vendors and share the stories behind these companies who help Wedding Venue Map couples have their best wedding day.
It’s important to hire the right professional wedding photo booth for your wedding day. Each different wedding photo booth company offers different features, such as printed photos or online-only photos, video clips, props, scrapbooks, and more. Adding a photo booth to your wedding enhances the fun at the reception and provides you with memories for years to come.
When people ask “what do you do”, how do you answer?
We create and capture moments for a living!
How long would you say you have been doing what you do today?
Photobooth Rocks has been providing entertainment for couples and companies throughout Central Florida since 2011. From pre-event logistics to the grand finale, Photobooth Rocks prides itself on the highest standard of service, quality, and excellence. Our photo booths are regularly maintained and updated with the most cutting-edge technology and we provide the attendant, props, and unlimited photo sessions for all guests. In short: we provide you with everything you need to have an unforgettable photo booth experience at your next event.
What did you do before you did this? And how did you get into the wedding industry?
I worked in marketing at an Orlando resort. My husband was a GM for a restaurant franchise. We started in 2011 and haven’t looked back since. We started with just one photo booth and now we have 11 photo booths and a mirror booth!
What is your favorite thing about what you do? What’s your WHY?
OMG – for SURE knowing that with our photo booths, our couples will be able to have memories of their guests 10, 20, 50 years from now to remember. And even more importantly, some of those people may not be around in the future and they will be able to have this as memories.
What’s the best part of your job?
I feel like photo strips are like dollar bills, they are impossible to throw away. So I know that these photo booth memories that are printed out will never fade away in a memory, get deleted off of a phone, or lost in a wall on social media.
What motivates you to do this every day?
At Photobooth Rocks, we get excited knowing we are part of making memories at milestone celebrations and corporate events. We make people laugh. We allow them to take a break from the real world and just have fun. We work hard so that our clients have a night they will never forget.
What fun-fact would people be surprised to learn about you?
I am obsessed with dogs! Specifically, pitbulls (we personally have a furbaby named Sig) and I scroll Instagram at night watching funny dog videos.
What is the best compliment you’ve received from your clients?
That they couldn’t believe how affordable our photo booths really were for what we included in our package and they are SO glad they had one!
How did you decide on the name of your company?
It was inspired by our sister company, Our DJ Rocks. People would always tell us “YOU ROCK!” So it was our vendors and clients who came up with our names!
What is the most unique service/product you offer?
Not only does our photo booth print photos (favors for your guests + wedding album for you!), it also records video messages! Have your guests leave you a short video with their wedding congratulations so you can remember how much FUN your guests had at your wedding.
What types of events do you specialize in?
Our resume includes weddings (of course) but also birthday parties of all ages, corporate events, product launches, award galas, charity events, trade shows and conventions, etc.
Why do couples hire you?
Because WE ROCK!
Why do you think your business is successful?
I think our business is successful because of our team. Our operations team knows stuff and knowing stuff matters. We have rocked over 1,135 events across Orlando and Central Florida. For example, we know every back road and shortcut in this town, so we’ll never be late to set up your photo booth rental. We know right where to go when we pull up to an Orlando wedding venue. We know every gate guard by name. We know the catering managers, event planners, photographers, and all the wonderful people in the Orlando wedding industry who work together to make your event a success. And guess what? They know us, too – the fun, yet professional, Photobooth Rocks.

The best piece of advice for someone who just got engaged?
There is a time for seriousness and a time for silliness. Just be you, be who you are, let go and just be. Get behind the curtain and show how you are feeling. When it comes to weddings, there is rarely another time when you will have all of your friends and all of your family in one room at the same time. Make the most of those moments!
What current trends have you seen at weddings that you personally like the most?
A lot of clients will choose to customize the props or the backdrop to reflect the theme of their wedding or event. We love helping them do that! The more detail and personalization – the more special the moments captured are!
What do you think are the biggest misconceptions that people have about your vendor category?
A lot of clients start off thinking that photobooths are cheesy. But once they see ours in action, they realize there is a reason they haven’t gone out of style – we don’t think they ever will! We make sure all of our booths are in the best condition, and are sleek. They fit in easily with classy wedding decor and they are the best way to capture lasting memories. Guests will hold on to those photo strips for YEARS!! No cheese here!!!
Photobooth Rocks shares some helpful information for engaged couples…..
What are the most common questions you get asked by brides and/or grooms?
How much is any additional hour? Depending on the event and your package, between $100-200 on average per hour.
Will the DJ or band music affect the video messaging? Yes, it most certainly can. So make sure that you place the photo booth far enough away from the music or not in the direct line of sight.
Will you deliver to a private residence? Absolutely! Just make sure there are no stairs and we’ll need solid, stable ground and cover.
What kind of props are provided? We have a variety of hats, lips, mustaches, and fun glasses.
How many prints are dispensed? Two (2) 2×6 prints are printed with each session. On the strip, you can have either 4 photos or 3 photos plus a custom logo on the bottom. There are options to upgrade to a 4×6 print out.
How big is your booth? What are the different booth styles that you offer? How many people can you fit in a booth? We have multiple options and styles. They are located on our website, where you can see what they look like and all the details about them.
About our booths:
- The open air style holds up to 6-8 people and is 6 ft. tall, 3 ft. wide and 1 1/2 ft. deep (we have 5 black and 2 white of this style)
- The open air with wings style holds up to 6-8 people and is 6 ft. tall, 5 ft. long and 2 1/2 ft. wide (we have 3 black and 1 white of this style)
- The white elite booth style holds up to 4-8 people and is 10 ft. wide, 7 ft. tall and 8 ft. long (We have only 1 of this style)
- The classic style booths hold up to 4 people and are 6 ft. tall, 4 ft. long and 2 1/2 ft. wide (We have 4 black and one white classic)
How much do the booths weigh? A lot!
- Classic Style – 485 lbs.
- Printz Style – 280 lbs.
- White Elite – 800 lbs.
What backdrops do you have? Grey, white, gold glitter, rose gold glitter, silver glitter, or vine wall.
How big is the camera and to what distance will it take a photo? The camera is optimized to take photos that print on a 2×6 printout. It is best if guests stay 5-6 feet from the camera for optimal photos.
How much space do you need? Depends on which photo booth, but generally, for weddings and special events, an 8×8 or 10×10 space will work perfectly. BUT if you get an open air photo booth and you want it set up in your 8×8 trade show booth, the footprint of the booth is only 2×4, so we would only need 2×4 space.
Who will be delivering and setting up our booth? Our delivery team.
How early do you arrive to set up the booth? Our delivery team arrives a minimum of 2 hours early for set up and our attendants arrive an hour prior to the rental time.
Do you have to pay to get in the booth? Yes…. JUST KIDDING! No! Not at all! You pay for the rental period. At the event, your guests could take as many pictures as you would like. I actually encourage you to keep coming back!
How fast is the setup? Mark and JJ are trained ninjas in the art of “photojitsu” (the art of photo booth setup). They take about 8-12 mins if they are in competition (depending on the booth style). But in the end, we always work behind the scenes so as not to interrupt any of your services. Within a few minutes, we’ll have the booth set up and ready to go as if we were never there!
Name three unique venues that you enjoy working at and why
We have probably been to nearly every venue in the greater Orlando area! But if we had to pick our top three, it would be Highland Manor, Casa Feliz, and Bella Collina! We love the staff there and they are always so accommodating to our team! We work with them a lot so it makes our delivery process extra smooth!
What some of their previous couples had to say….
“We got rave reviews about the booth and attendant all night! This company is professional and highly communicative- which gave me such peace of mind the entire time I was planning our wedding. I absolutely adore my photo guest book they provided and I can’t wait to look through all of the photos and video footage on the flash drive. This is an extra detail for your wedding that will really create a fun experience for you and your guests and memories to last a lifetime.” – Chelsea, Casa Feliz
“Photobooth Rocks was SO fun to have at our wedding!!! They are so easy to work with. They have a lot of different options for every budget. We wanted a little Disney sprinkled in our wedding without going crazy with a Disney themed wedding and they made sure there was some fun Disney props! Ashley was our photobooth attendant and I’m so happy we got her for our wedding. She was so sweet and so fun. She had so much energy it was perfect for our wedding. Our guests loved being over there with her. She made sure my husband and I got to go first and made sure everyone was having the best time. We got a scrapbook and video messages from our guests and it was such a fun way to remember and relive that amazing day. This will be one of the best decisions for your wedding. Our guests had sooo much fun with it!!!” – Danielle, Orchid Garden
“Photobooth Rocks was fantastic to work with and made the entire process of renting their equipment easy and exciting, from start to finish! They seemed just as excited as our engagement and wedding planning as we were! They were always quick to respond to any emails and questions, and always had our best interest in mind. Their prices were unbeatable and our guests LOVED the photo booth. We’re so thankful to have had Photobooth Rocks with us at our wedding reception, and if we had to do it all over, we would choose them again and again!” –
Amanda + Brent, Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa
