Be The Star was absolutely amazing from our first meeting to our wedding! They were so incredibly friendly and down to earth and wanted to make sure everything was perfect for our special day. They sent us a proof of our photo booth backgrounds and had no problem changing the... Read More colors when I asked. The night of the wedding they were full of energy and so enthusiastic. All of our guest had nothing but wonderful things to say. They have such a wide selection of fun props (much more than any other photo booth we looked at) and the open air booth made it perfect for large group pictures...you don't have to try to squeeze everyone in wondering if they'll make it in the frame because there is a camera where you can see everyone in the photo! The album of all the photos is AWESOME!! We had so much fun looking through the it!! Any event I have in the future I will be sure to use them and recommend them to all my family and friends!!

We could not have asked for a better photo booth than Be The Star! From the beginning, Denise was incredibly friendly, responsive and easy to work with. I compared several photobooth vendors, and selected Be the Star because of its competitive price, it's open booth, and the... Read More fact that they print a copy of each photo for all participants. She provided us with our contract and payment online, and we were able to pay by credit card. She was very flexible with our custom photo graphics. At the event, the Be the Star operator was very helpful. The props provided with the booth were so much fun! Lots of amazing accessories and hilarious signs. We also decided to use the photo booth book as our guest book, and we have loved looking through all the photos and seeing all the funny comments. Thank you, Denise, and Be the Star!

I would absolutely recommend Be the Star for your photo booth needs. We used them for our wedding and it was absolutely perfect! We had a beautiful gold sequin backdrop, the prop table and the memory album and it wasn't that expensive. The props were fun and the memory album... Read More is something we've looked at a ton of times already and will continue throughout our lives. The attendant was friendly and made sure that everything went perfectly smooth. Our guests loved our custom strips and how some pictures were cycling through on the screen. Overall we had a great experience and would use them again if we're ever in need of another photo booth.

I hired Mark and Denise to DJ, provide dance lighting, kareoke and a photo booth for my triplet's sweet 16 birthday party. As a father of five, including my triplets, I need to squeeze a penny into a nickel just to make ends meet. With that said, the price of the DJ, lights... Read More and photo booth was a definite consideration when making my selection. Mark and Denise were considerably cheaper for the total package than even the lowest of the other estimates I received, so much so that I was concerned about the quality of what I would be receiving. Needless to say, I was BLOWN AWAY with the whole experience and quality of the service!!! Hands down better than any other DJ, kareoke and light show I have seen over the years and the photo booth, with countless props was an insane hit with all in attendance (to the tune of over 600 strips of photos, 3 per strip...1800+ photos!!!) Mark and Denise were great, easy peasey lemon squeezey, playing anything and everything that was requested and filling in with appropriate popular songs to keep the dance floor filled throughout the party. I think the difference with this service is made by the quality of the equipment and the prowess with which Mark and Denise operate it. Countless wireless lighting cans that filled the entire venue, flashing and changing colors along with insane quality audio and seamless music mash-ups. Do I seem excited...pleased...thrilled by this service...YES, YES and YES because they were AMAZING, dare I say the VERY BEST and for once in my life, I feel I got a truly outstanding experience for a truly amazing and reasonable price. Take advantage of these guys, they are without question, the very best thats out there and worth every single penny!!! ps...the party was slated to end at 10pm and parents began showing up to pick up their children between 9 and 9:30...the damn kids wouldn't leave...we had to literally shut the music and lights down and chase them out or they would still be dancing now!!!

I was on the fence about getting a Photo Booth (it was overdone, too much money, etc) but decided to go for it. I am SO glad we did!! Be the Star was great because they could accommodate so many people inside the booth. AND each person who went in the booth got a photo strip... Read More afterwards, which is not something we found with any of the other booths we talked to). We got the memory book package and I am so happy we did, because the album was hilarious. I am so glad we got to see everyone get progressively sillier as the night went on, and this is something we will look back on and always smile at. I got the props package with the Photo Booth, but also got my own Harry Potter props for my guests to use as well. I half expected our props to disappear at the end of the night, but every single one was perfectly put together for us. I am so so happy we ended up booking Be the Star and would definitely recommend them to anyone!

My husband, Mark and I, have been working together since the inception of our DJ company in 1996. We created Be The Star Photo Booth in 2013 in order to provide a fun and exciting option to add to weddings and parties, that would also give each guest a fabulous memory of the event to take home with them!
