These guys are absolutely awesome!  From start to finish they were professional, friendly, and fantastic at communicating.  We hired them for our wedding and they did an amazing job setting up, providing great props, and the attendant was super nice and helpful.  All my friends and family loved the photo booth and had a ton of fun.  I also heard from others (since I was all over the place) that they were there early setting up and started right on time.  They were seriously one of the best decisions we made for our wedding! THANK YOU guys for making our wedding so much fun!

"Our company recently rented a photo booth from Pixster to use at a multi day conference in San Diego.  I cannot praise McLain and his team enough.  OUTSTANDING customer service.  The photo booth was a huge hit and everyone who stopped by our booth to use it had a great time.  Not only did it print photos, but guests are also able to upload their pictures to Twitter, Facebook, text and email them as well.  What a great marketing tool if you are using this for your business!  If you are looking to rent a photo booth for an event, you absolutely have to go with Pixster.  I will use them again in a heart beat next time our company is in San Diego!"   

"These guys are the best!!!  Had a booth for my wedding and was blown away with the level of service they provided.  They personalized everything for me and made sure that the feel of the pictures were the theme of my wedding... pretty impressed with the creativity and guidance they gave me.  OUTSTANDING!!! Thank you for being the nicest and easiest vendor to work with!"

"I had Pixster at my wedding and I couldn’t believe what a hit it was! I did the Open Air booth and it was the highlight of the reception...HIGHLY recommend!"

We had them for our wedding, and they were amazing from start to finish. Talking with them was a breeze to get everything set up, and when the big day came, they showed up when expected and were ready to go! The pictures came out amazingly as well!  Couldn't recommend them enough!

It Goes Beyond Social responsibility

At Pixster Photo Booths we believe that our community is our responsibility.  That's why we take every effort to give back directly and indirectly.  By purchasing locally as often as possible to paying our people well above industry standards, we believe that we are called to not only provide our customers with outstanding service, but our community as well.  Through charitable donations to giving discounts to underprivileged homes, our social responsibility isn't an option, it's just how we do business.  To learn more, please contact us.  We would love to tell you why we do what we do and what we can do for you!

Here at Pixster we have a history of going above and beyond the level of excellence in corporate social responsibility.  Every booth we manufacture a child in a developing country is fed, educated, and clothed.  To honor these children, we name the photo booths themselves after them as a constant reminder of the "bigger picture". 

 In addition, we use San Diego artisans to manufacture every photo booth as a way to support small local businesses.  So the next time you use one of our booths remember, you don't just look good, you're helping us do good!
