All-Around Awesome Photobooth Services!

Reviewed on 10/27/2015

I am a total planner, so I contacted BPM about their photobooth about a year in advance. From the very beginning, the owner, Matt, was awesome. He worked with us and gave us exactly what we were looking for, with stellar service along the way. Everything that was provided to... Read More us by this company was great – the set up, the scrapbook, the online gallery. Additionally, I cannot speak highly enough about our photobooth attendant. She was awesome – she was professional, personable, and organized. What I also liked about this company was the TYPE of photobooth that they have. You can fit a decent amount of people in the free-standing booth, which makes it a lot of fun. The backdrop looked nice in the pictures, and the quality of the prints were some of the better photobooth pictures I have seen. We enjoyed working with this company and we would not hesitate to recommend their services to anyone in the area who is looking – as their price for the quality cannot be beat.

So Much Bang For Your Buck

For how much we paid and the incredible service/extras we received compared to other photo booth rentals, I am amazed. I couldn't even get this good of a deal on Groupon. We received a 5 hour rental, props, an awesome photo album of the guests, AND the guests got to take home...

Photobooth Pictures to Last Forever

BPM Deejays did an amazing job with their photo booth at our wedding. Our photo booth was set up in the cocktail area, right outside of the main room. The photo booth came with lots of fun props that all of our wedding guests just loved! The attendant was very professional and... Read More she helped all of the guests throughout the night. Each guest got to keep one copy of the pictures and the other copy was pasted into a photo book for us! Such a great way to remember the day! At the bottom of each photo, there was a link to access all photo booth pics after the wedding so you can download the photos yourself. I thought this feature was particularly unique. Not to mention the photos were available to browse only 3 days after the wedding (which is VERY soon!) Thank you BPM Deejays for providing such great and funny photo booth pictures to remember our wedding day forever! -Diane & Rick

Hot Flash Photobooths was amazing for our wedding. The photobooth accommodated several people and had the options of color or black and white photos. Everyone had a great time!

We had a fantastic experience with Hot Flash Photobooths at our July 2017 wedding in Pittsburgh. In addition to being professional, reasonably priced and high quality, I was shocked by the amazing amount of artistic touch and personalized design that Matt Swaoger (the owner) was... Read More able to accommodate. When I wasn't crazy about any of the pre-designed backgrounds they had available for the photo strips, Matt said he could custom make one for us at no extra cost! He ended up making an amazing design that we loved and even incorporated an image of what our cake topper looked like! It felt very personal and he displayed an incredible amount of patience, talent and professionalism along the way. He even seemed to enjoy the artistic process, which I really loved. Their props were great, the attendant was good and they provided a great book of photo strips that people could sign that we used as our guest book. We would highly recommend this company to anyone!

Very easy process with Hot Flash! Easy to communicate, very responsive via email, since I was planning from out of town.

Whenever I first started wedding planning, I knew I really wanted a photobooth, but after doing some research, I thought it wouldn't be a possibility on our tight budget. Hot Flash was recommended to me by a family member who used them at her wedding, and I just have to say how... Read More thrilled I am that they were able to provide services for our wedding at such a reasonable price. The owners were so accommodating and even waived a travel fee to help us out! The photo booth was the highlight of our wedding and had a steady stream of guests at every minute of the night! The booth attendant was so kind and professional — which I'm sure isn't easy when you have a bunch of rowdy wedding guests! We had so much fun looking through the pictures the next day, which the attendant glued into a keepsake album where guests were able to write well-wishes or funny notes next to their photos. They also provided online access a few weeks after the event so our guests were able to share them on social media. I would absolutely recommend (and often do) Hot Flash to any bride looking for the full photobooth experience without breaking the budget!
