Exceptional Photo Booth Experiences!

Photo Booth Rentals in Iowa

“We used Smiling Dog Entertainment for our wedding and we could not recommend them enough! Every part of our experience was positive- from a phone call before we committed answering any questions, to customizing our photo strip, to the professionalism the night of our wedding. Everyone had a blast taking photos and they mean the world to me as the bride because they’re really the only photos I have with people other than of course the professional ones. It’s the perfect way to take photos but still be in the moment! Smiling Dog Entertainment prints an extra copy for you and puts them in a book as well as sending you a link! One of our favorite parts of our wedding reception!”

Premium Photo Booth Package

“We had Smiling Dog Entertainment come out for our company holiday party last week. The photo booth was SUCH a hit! I loved the option of having the prints as well as the online photos! Shane was so great to work with. I had a design picked out for the prints and then decided I didn’t like it. He let me resubmit a new design and really wanted to make sure I loved it and wasn’t settling for anything. He was on time to set up and was super nice to our guests. The props were great and I loved the backdrop! Could not recommend them more!”

“I loved working with Smiling Dog Entertainment so much!! Shane is the best owner ever and was so communicative and responsive and even before meeting him his positivity would pop from his emails! We used them for our wedding and they were flexible with our needs and seriously one of my favorite parts of the wedding!!  Everyone loved the photo booth and all the fun props and we even got a book with all the pictures at the end of the night which was so fun to look through the next day!  I think everyone needs a photo booth at their wedding and Smiling Dog Entertainment was the best! Thank you!!!”
