Instead of paying $600+ for a 3 hour photo booth at our wedding we decided to build our own. The enclosure is made out of pvc and bed sheets and takes no time at all to assemble. This was great for us as it was simple, light and easy to move. We did build a light stand and mount for an iPad, but I would suggest buying a simple tripod with a light.
