Event was for my mom's 75th Birthday party. Tyler was our attendant, he was amazing. All of our guests had a blast. I would recommend the up charge for the 4x6 pictures though. The 2x3 are small. Great job Triumph!!!! Thanks Jason

I used David's services "photo booth" about a year ago and was very PLEASED with the overall experience. About a week ago, my sister in law was looking for a photo booth for her daughters birthday party, I remembered the great experience I had with David, I contacted him and was able to get a photo booth the last minute, again they did a great job! WOW! Arrived on time, very pleasant employees, oh did I mention his prices are VERY reasonable. I definitely would recommend his services without a doubt and I plan to utilize Davids service in a couple of weeks for my sisters' 60th birthday party.

We set up a photobooth station with Desert Rose Photography for our daughter's 16th Birthday Party at a restaurant in Downtown Disney. I can not say enough good things about this company. They showed up early to set up, and everything was so professional, organized and fantastic. The kids could not get enough of taking photos with each other and it really helped the time go by. They had great props and each person went home with lots of photos of a fun night. You could tell they were having so much fun taking group photos with each other. Will did a wonderful job at creating a template that matched the party theme and the photo scrapbook that my daughter came home with really topped off the evening. His bid came in a little bit higher than some of the other companies BUT well worth paying the extra for a flawless presentation. If you're on the fence due to cost, it's FOR SURE worth it to pay the extra, I'm so happy that we did. Highly recommended and I would use them again in a heartbeat. Even the server at the restaurant was impressed at how cool the photo booth setup was. Also the two staff that worked the photo booth for our event were so pleasant and sweet. Thank you Desert Rose Photography!

So happy we chose Ivan to photograph our son's first birthday party! The pictures are fantastic and we were delighted to see the full event captured, along with the joy, excitement, and wonder on everyone's faces -- kids and adults alike! Ivan was on time, very well prepared, and the 100% he put in, both during and after the event, was evident to both us and our guests. Thanks, Ivan, for getting some great shots that we'll be able to enjoy for years to come.

Brad was awesome! He arrived on time as discussed and even worked with my change of schedule. The event was for my sons' 1st birthday party. We had about 200 guests and of course, many moments to capture and remember. I can't wait to see the images he's captured. I was able to see glimpses during the party on his camera and was happy with them, which says a lot, because I'm a passionate-hobbyist photographer with picky photography standards. Every picture I wanted taken was taken, every request was granted. Thank you Brad for being professional and capturing one of the more important mildstones in my sons' life!

Mr. Raff was 100 % the correct choice for our event. We had some time before are event, so we wanted to try and find the right photographer for our special gathering. Friends of ours mentioned that they had been to a wedding and noticed how professional “the guy that was taking the pictures”, and how they LOVED the final product. So we decided to call Mr. Raff, after meeting with him once we knew he was the right vendor. The day of the event. He showed up early, insisted that we call him Marc, asked a couple of question to make sure all venue plans remained the same (which we had a couple of changes) he rolled with them and made the adjustments. Marc, was creating moments, capturing moments , interacting with the moments he was “the guy that was taking the pictures” As our party was coming to an end, Marc came to us before he left to make sure all our needs were taking care of. We thanked him for going over and beyond, and looked forward to the finished product. Marc, emailed & contacted us giving us updates threw out the process. When the final product arrived, WOW, this was amazing, not only did he bring us a final product, he brought us back to that special day, he captured shots that we had forgot about and ones that we had missed. It has been a week or so since our gathering, and just yesterday I received a request from a friend, to where they could purchase those pictures/ memories of that night. Marc Raff IS NOT ONLY “the guy that was taking the pictures” he is a professional photographer! If you are in need of a vendor who does what he says and goes over and beyond. I would without a doubt recommend you contact Marc, you will have no regrets. Now when someone tells me they are having a party. I say to them you need to hire Marc! Sorry for the long comment, but when I find a GREAT vendor i need to make sure I spread the word. Thank You Richard

Nona is hands down one of the best photographers our family has ever worked with! Very professional and extremely good at what she does. We had to reschedule d/t the bipolar Houston weather and she worked well (and FAST) to get everything done, EVEN had a few pics ready in less than 24hrs!! I only wish we could've gotten the remaining photos a little sooner as a small project I was working on was delayed (and so many were so good!). To be fair, she delivered on her original ETA AND photos were done just before the holidays, so we know she was very busy. I would absolutely recommend her to everyone I know, our pictures have gotten rave reviews from family and friends!

Kelli photographed my mom's 90th birthday party and she did an awesome job. We requested family group shots as well as candids and the pictures came out great. At the party everyone loved her. She managed to be inconspicuous and engaging at the same time, organizing the groups, finding the perfect lighting, having us move things we wouldn't want in the picture, taking shots from every angle, and photographing little scenes and objects that will be great in a photo book but I would never have thought to take. She was late because of a personal issue, but since this was a house party we were able to work around it, and she was very apologetic and offered to stay for extra time or drop the price to make up for it. Afterward she was a little too optimistic about how quickly she could work through all the pictures and send us the edited result, but she did send them within a very reasonable timeframe and well before I needed them, and they were worth waiting for. I would definitely hire her again.

From the time of booking to the party and after, the whole experience with Sheryl was extremely pleasant and easy, especially at a stressful time of having to plan a party. She followed up several times before and after the event and communication was great. Sheryl did a fabulous job, the photos are amazing quality and she captured beautiful moments of my son and our family during this special milestone of his 5th birthday party. We had over 25 children attend and she was able to capture everyone. I would highly recommend Sheryl!

There are photographers and then there are artists with a camera; Nicole Pittman is a true artist. I also hired her husband, Chris. Typically you don't strike gold by having an equally talented spouse - but that's what I found in this spectaclular team. I even hired them for another event. I didn't have the money in the budget but after my client saw the work - we couldn't afford NOT to have them. Oh - and the turnaround was insane. They turned over hundreds and hundreds of photos to me OVERNIGHT and a 5 minute edited video in less than 24 hours. I have NEVER seen such talent in a team. Oh - and they are the nicest couple you will ever meet. I'd hire them just to follow me around and say nice things to me! A MUST HIRE!

Grant was incredible! I highly recommend him for all events. I hired him to take photos of my 30th birthday in Malibu and he exceeded my expectations. He was punctual, professional, and the photos were absolutely exquisite. He also took the time to edit all the photos and did a very thorough job. A+ work. I will be hiring him again in the future!!

Reviews Hugh Foster, Professional Photographer. Special Event Photographer The 1st b day is very important to Koreans. I'm going to have to update this post later because there are so many excellent points I'd like to make about Hugh Foster. He is a premier photographer who is extremely talented and versatile. His forte is portraiture and we hired him to make our daughter's first birthday party extra special. Photos are one of the best ways to memorialize those special moments. Memories fade and years from now, my daughter who won't remember her actual birthday, will be able to look back and be reminded of how very special she is to us. Hugh captured moments that only a patient and experienced photographer knowledgeable in the craft is able. We believe in health and fitness and so does Hugh. He has a positive energy, a professional attitude, and his demeanor is friendly. My guests and their many children were impressed with the way he interacted with everyone. He is PATIENT. Hugh waited for the right shots and knew when to take the picture. He snapped away and was able to walk away with several shots more than expected. He also captured moments of our friends’ children that I am going to have printed on high grade photo paper from a photo lab and send to them. These photos are frame worthy and artistic as far as the talented eye goes. He is PUNCTUAL. Hugh was right on time. Hugh arrived early for the event, scoped it out and did the same for our second venue. After the party we went to the Great Park with the big orange balloon and hangar and carousel. We had a blast taking photos. His set up and professional lighting made shots in difficult weather come out perfectly. He is PROFESSIONAL. The turnaround time for our photos was prompt and ahead of schedule. After the event, a professional has to go over the multitude of shots, and retouch them or use photoshop to clean up shots, crop, etc. Hugh knows how to efficiently work through to make sure it’s done. He had all the right EQUIPMENT. Hugh brought long and short lenses, two cameras, flash and lighting equipment, and a other professional equipment needed to get the shot. For those who know what it means to invest money in a photographer know that lighting is everything. Hugh knows what to do in bright sunshine, in the shade, and even knows how to make shadows work for the composition of the photo. I’m going to hire him again for sure. I also want to go to him for head shots. If Hugh has responded to your job post, then you need to book him immediately or you may miss out on a chance to hire him. He’s the One!

Kelly is amazing! I hired Kelly as my wedding photographer in September, and she did a wonderful job in capturing our special day. The day of the wedding, she and her assistant showed up at the venue about an hour early to take pictures of the ceremony site and reception, as well as photos of my family and the wedding party. She captured every single moment of the ceremony and reception, with perfection in the angles and lighting. She was very fun to work with, and made us feel comfortable from the very beginning. My husband and I had a few specific photo poses that we wanted taken, and Kelly made sure to take all of those, which came out even greater than we had imagined. I will definitely be recommending Kelly to all of my friends, and will be contacting her in a few years for a maternity photoshoot! :)

I used this company for my daughter's 15th birthday. Tee and his assistant were awesome! They were the hit of the night. All the props they brought and the different background choices they used made the night. They were patient and professional with all the teens/kids. I am definitely using them again for my next event.
