“ShutterBooth Rocks. Being in the industry I’ve worked with many different photobooths. ShutterBooth is the best by far. Cheryl who runs the show is awesome. She’s great to work with funny and loves her clients. I’ve worked with her now countless times and the booths have always been a hit. Everyone loves them and it’s a really good little add on for your wedding or event. I would highly recommend having Shutterbooth at your wedding or event and will continue to use them at mine.”
- Ben Mahoney, Ben Mahoney Productions
“Thanks so much for providing the source of so many good times and memories for the Hamilton/Freck wedding on Saturday. I saw some of the shots that went into the guestbook, and I know it’ll be something Megan and Adam laugh and maybe cry over later. Everyone really enjoyed it. Thanks so much. We hope to work with you guys again in the future!”
- Rebecca, Coordinator at Soirée Weddings & Events
“Hi Cheryl, Just wanted to send a quick note thanking you for your work on Saturday! The photobooth was a total hit- there was a line all night! We can’t wait to see the video. Thanks for everything!
“Great service, high-quality photos and fun props! We hired Shutterbooth for our wedding and our guests had a blast! The booth attendants were so accommodating and they presented us with an awesome album at the end of the night. In addition, we received a link the following day so that we could download all the images of the photos. We looked into other photobooth companies in the area and Shutterbooth offered the best rate and an excellent package! I highly recommend Shutterbooth to anyone interested in having a photobooth at their wedding.”
“Wonderful set up and professionalism! On time, economical, and most importantly, the guests LOVED it! You can choose to do B&W, color, or sepia, or have guest choice! Plus, you can fit 10 adults in their booth! Props were wonderful and the album, amazing! Love.”
“Shutter Booth was awesome! If you can afford it, I would HIGHLY recommend having a photo booth at your wedding and going with Shutter Booth. All of our guests had so much fun with the photo booth and it is a great way to get those who are huge dancers something fun to do and get them involved instead of just sitting at their table. I loved that they printed out two copies of every photo strip — one for the guest and another to go in a scrapbook they made for us with all of the pictures! We also received a CD with all of the photos in digital format about a week after the wedding. Our whole experience with Shutter Booth was great. They were really responsive to emails and made sure everything was on track and set before the wedding day. Our photo booth attendant was also super sweet and helpful. I would HIGHLY recommend going with Shutter Booth ”
“We absolutely loved having you guys at the wedding and received a lot of compliments about the photo booth both during and after the wedding! The album turned out great and since those are the only photos we have so far we continue to look at them regularly to recap the night! Thanks again for everything!”
- Juan & Maureen, August 4th, 2012 at Harry Carry’s in Lombard, Illinois
“Thank you so much for your help with the wedding. We just got back from our honeymoon, and we received the DVD as well as the ShutterYou.com email. I have already uploaded some of our guests’ pictures to the site – what an amazing feature! Our guests loved the photo booth, and I’m trying to convince my cousin to get one at her wedding next year!”
- Lynn & Paul, August 4th, 2012 at The Harold Washington Library in Chicago
“Thank you so much for your great service! Everyone loved the photo booth! I truly enjoyed looking at all of the pics the following days after the wedding. It’s a great memory and keepsake.”
- Julie & Charles, August 4th, 2012 at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare in Rosemont, Illinois
“We used ShutterBooth for our July 2012 wedding and they were great. They were professional and the quality of pictures was excellent. The booth itself was nice and they brought in props that even went with our Chicago themed wedding. The pictures also served as nice favors for our guests who remarked they had such fun taking pictures.”
“We have all great things to say about our shutterbooth experience at our wedding. Thank you to everyone at Shutterbooth for adding hours of entertainment to our wedding, and for years afterwards!”

- Ginger & Jimmy, June 2nd, 2012 at Monty’s Banquets in Bensenville, Illinois
“One of the best decisions I made regarding my wedding was having Shutterbooth at the reception. I got many, many compliments on how much fun it was, and everybody got a little souvenir to take home. It has also been a blast to look through the scrapbook from that night.
Dealing with Shutterbooth was also great — they were professional, responsive, answered all of my questions, and gave me a lot of flexibility to put together a package of what I wanted.”
“I just wanted to say THANK YOU again for an amazing evening. Brian and I had the most wonderful weekend- and we’ve received so many compliments and comments about how amazing the whole wedding day was. Thank you for all of your hard work! The guest book turned out beautiful- and our guests had a blast!”

- Andrea & Anthony, September 24th, 2011 at Tamarack Golf Club in Naperville, Illinois
“We really enjoyed having ShutterBooth Photobooth – Chicago at our wedding. At the end of the day, it was an added cost we felt was worthwhile. We got the Platinum Package and the cost and quality was very competitive compared to other vendors.
All the guests (young and old) loved that we had a photobooth (with props) throughout the evening. The booth itself was well-made and was able to fit a good number of people without seeming like it was going to fall apart (unlike another one my friend had at her wedding).
The two event hosts were very professional and did a fabulous job of decorating and putting my scrapbook/album together the night off. I didn’t have to worry about them one bit and they did a great job setting up and closing down without bringing any attention. To this day (almost a year later) friends and family still enjoy flipping through the scrapbook/album. Within a couple of weeks, we received a CD copy of the photobooth pics too!”
“We used Shutterbooth for our wedding, and I was extremely happy and satisfied with the experience. Cheryl was great.
We used our monogram extensively in our wedding. I sent her an example of what we had put together, and she sent me back TEN designs she had put together based on our monogram, in less than 36 hours, for us to pick from. It was difficult to chose one, they were all so good.
She had the digital pictures to us within two weeks, with both the whole strips and the individual photos included.
The staff at the event was great and kept the process smooth and straightforward, including getting the guests to sign off in the photo guest book
Normally, I try to post lengthy reviews and expound upon any issues or shortcomings, but the reality of this situation is that they did everything right, went above and beyond when design the logo for the photo strips, and it was perfect.”
“Everyone loved the photobooth and had a great time. We really appreciate all of your help for making our day very special. Thank you for sending us the DVD!
- Amit & Lilliam, September 4th, 2011 at the Metropolitan Club at Willis Tower in Chicago
The photobooth at our wedding was huge success thanks to ShutterBooth. They brought along some fabulous props (including mustaches, fake lips, hats, etc.) and the pictures were very high quality. It really was a great addition to our wedding! The photobooth at our wedding doubled as a guestbook as well as a giveaway for our guests. I was very impressed with the guest book and how it was personalized. Cheryl and her company is easy to work with and super nice. I would highly recommend ShutterBooth to anyone!

“I wanted to thank you for the services that you provided. It was well worth the money and everyone enjoyed it immensely! James was so surprised and i think him and his sister were in it more than anybody else was. The album turned out awesome.”
- Katie & James, September 4th, 2011 at Seven Bridges Country Club in Woodridge, Illinois
“If you are thinking about a way to add to your wedding reception, get a photobooth and hire Shutterbooth! They were absolutely fantastic!! My husband and I have been dating for many years and have always gone into photobooths on vacation etc so we thought this would be fun to add to our wedding. It was totally worth it! Instead of a traditional guestbook at the entrance, we had a framed sign that read “See Photo Booth to sign our guest book”. We had a guest book next to the booth that the 2 Shutterbooth attendants worked on and allowed guests to sign and write comments by their photo strip. The guests were able to keep a duplicate copy of their pictures. Our guests had a blast and loved the prop box! We had so many fun pictures to look. It was so awesome seeing people get goofy- especially people like our grandparents who we never see like that The attendants did a great job and worked hard all night! Honestly, it was our favorite part of the wedding reception.”

The scrapbook was a big hit and very creative. It was so nice to get it that night and she even sent me extra photos later of all the ones that Jonas and I were in. Really great quality service!”
- Mollie & Jonas, July 25th, 2009 at Architectural Artifacts in Chicago
“First, I wanted to thank you for the photo strips last holiday season. It was SUCH a nice surprise, and they’ve made great bookmarks all year for us. Thanks for thinking of us beyond our wedding. Amongst all the wedding vendors and people you deal with during a wedding, you and Shutterbooth stood out as great people to work with. Hope your wedding went well and have a good day!”

- Venessa & Glen, May 24th, 2009, Riverside Receptions in Geneva, Illinois
“My husband and I are thrilled with the service we received from Shutterbooth. From the time we booked with them, until after our wedding, the customer service has been wonderful. Before the wedding, Cheryl worked with me to create a beautiful custom design to run on all the photo strips. The attendants at my wedding were professional, helpful and friendly, and the photobooth was definitely one of the most fun parts of my wedding day. By the time the reception was over, not only did my guests and I have wonderful photo keepsakes, but I had a very special, unique, and color coordinated (to match my wedding colors/theme) scrapbook that was ready to take home that night. The photos were put up online right away after the wedding so my friends and family could see them all. After the wedding I also received the digital negatives to all the images, and I even received a Christmas card with a photo bookmark of my husband and I. I have been to a lot of other weddings in the past couple of years, many with photobooths, and none had the quality products/services that Shutterbooth did. Cheryl and everyone at Shutterbooth were so thoughtful and professional, they are amazing and went above and beyond. I will continue to recommend them to anyone I know who is looking for a photobooth!”
- Christina & Steve
“Cheryl and her team were great! From the beginging to the end Cheryl worked with me. She made sure I felt comfortable with my package I was getting and explained everything I needed to know. I loved the photobooth from the very first time I saw it at the “Out of the Box Cocktail Party” downtown in Chicago. I just knew I had to have it for my wedding. It was a huge hit with all of the guests! Everybody talked about it after the wedding saying how it was such a great piece to add to a wedding. My new husband even told me “good call on the booth” Our attendents that worked that night were wonderful. They were very professional and helpful with all our questions. Everybody got to keep a photo and then one was put in a scrapbook for me and my new hubby. Our guests signed the scrapbook and now we have another set of memories to look back on. We loved every minute of it and were very pleased that our guests enjoyed it too! Again many thanks to Cheryl and her crew!”
- Kate & Ernesto
“In Short: Excellent customer service. Accommodated us within 1 month of our wedding. Catered to our requests, answered questions in an expedient manner. Friendly attendant. Great price.
Details: Our wedding was in June 2009. A photo booth was one of the best ideas for our wedding! My sister was married a month prior to my own wedding (in the same hotel no less) and after experiencing ShutterBooth first hand, I knew it would be a great idea.
Cheryl answered all my questions and allowed us to receive the same pricing as my sister’s wedding. We were also the 1st customers who had the chance to choose both colored and black and white photos. All in all, great memories for the guests and us. My wife and I even took a picture with the ShutterBooth attendant at the end of the night!”
- Ronald Tam (via yelp.com)
“I wanted to take this opportunity to thank Shutterbooth for a great time and excellent service for the photobooth for our wedding reception. Everyone loved it, the pictures came out great, and the scrapbook is something that my new wife and I will treasure for years to come. Thanks again!”
