Magic Mirror Photo Booths, also known as Selfie Mirrors, are the latest “must have” in the entertainment and events industry, especially for weddings and corporate events . They provide photographic memories as well as a fun and memorable experience for hosts and guests.


There has been an ongoing demand for photo booths at occasions for the last decade, however the introduction of the Magic Mirror in 2016 has become the latest demand in desperate need of suppliers.
The best Magic Mirror suppliers start out with the same ambition, to:

•   Work from home / work for yourself
•   Earn extra income by working part time or on evenings or weekends
•   Expand their entertainment offering / to offer a Magic Mirror in addition to an existing business, such as wedding photography or mobile disco

It’s really easy to get your Magic Mirror business up and running and making money – here is our basic step-by-step guide to getting started:

1. Purchase a Magic Mirror 
2. Let people know who you are – e.g. create a website (free set-up available with our business package), share your business on social media, list yourself in directories.
3. People send you enquiries – most of these will come from your website or other marketing (see our lead generation service)
4. Attend the event – Magic Mirrors can be assembled in 20 mins – and assist when required
5. Make more money by selling extra gifts (eg. Keyrings and extra prints)


When starting a Magic Mirror or Selfie Mirror business, earnings can be limitless but what you earn will depend on several factors. Ultimately these are your decisions. However, when deciding to start your mirror photo booth business, you must consider:

•   How much time do you have? You can run your business either full time, part time or on evenings and weekends.
•   How far are you willing to travel to provide a Magic Mirror for an event? How will you get there? What will your travel costs be?
•   How much will you charge to hire your Magic Mirror for an event? – What are other people charging, how will you compare to them?
•   Will you host the event yourself or pay to hire an attendant? Will a family member or friend be able to help out?
•   How will you promote your mirror photo booth business and at what cost?

Running & Staffing Your Magic Mirror Hire Business

One of the most important and frequently asked questions regarding running a magic mirror business is how much money can you realistically make. When you look at the many prices that Photo booth companies charge to hire out their equipment, it can seem at first to be a lucrative venture but there are also obviously costs involved too and this is where the confusion is for many companies.

This doesn’t mean that considerably good profits cannot be made and it’s vitally important that the equipment you purchase including warranties and supports play a huge role in the potential profits you may make.

When you are looking for Magic Mirror equipment, it is paramount that you purchase not only from a reputable company but one that supplies good quality and well-built equipment.

If you purchase equipment that is of poor quality, you are likely to have issues from day one regarding faulty or broken equipment, potentially creating more costs.

Always ensure you have not only the best equipment but that the company offers both warranty and support on your equipment for at least 12 months.

Another question that is commonly asked is regarding staff wages, this largely depends on whether you intend to staff your Magic Mirror business yourself or you intend to hire staff to help you.

If you are considering using staff at least part of the time, this can often be your biggest outgoing. Many Photo Booths and magic Mirrors are easily maneuvered by one person but if you are intending to keep other employment, you may need to seek the services of additional staff.

Always ensure you factor this cost in from the beginning so you are aware of the costs.

Starting a Magic Mirror business can be incredibly lucrative and if you have done your homework and incorporated all the costs, you will see the potential of a very successful business.
