I'll show you how to build your own Automated Photo Booth for less than hiring one (if you can lay your hands on a DSLR). You can customise the housing to suit your event/wedding and as it's controlled by an Arduino Nano you don't need anyone to 'man it' throughout the night.
Your guests just press the giant arcade button and the photo booth guides them through their own photoshoot sequence. :)
