SUPERB!!! The whole team was so fun, so nice, so accommodating. You should ALWAYS have a photobooth at your wedding. My guests had a BLAST! Every picture I see is people dying to get into the photobooth. The set up was excellent, the props plentiful and the service phenomenal. They even had a photobook for the guests to sign for me. I was so surprised! At the end they put it all together and gave it to me. Also, not only do they print out 4 copies of the pictures but you can also email them to yourself! It was amazing! Will and his amazing wife were so wonderful to work with and the prices is beyond reasonable for what they offer. Will even reached out to make sure I liked the design they created for us. There are so many cool options! Thank you all so so much! I will recommend you to everyone! :)

Will Hartman was amazing! Will and his wife, Michelle, designed my wedding photo booth template and it was beautiful. Will arrived early, set up everything and was wonderful during his entire time at my wedding. I couldn't have hired a better professional. The photo booth I had was the LED inflatable backdrop and it turned out great in pictures. The props were also fantastic. I feel like they really go above and beyond to do the best job and I am so grateful they did my wedding. Thanks so much for the wonderful job and for the scrapbook. It really was a lot of fun for everyone there and the moments you captured were priceless. I highly recommend hiring Desert Rose Photography for your wedding or other special event. They were perfect at my wedding!

This review is long overdue. They stepped in with a photo booth for my wedding on 08/06/2016 after the people we originally booked fell through less than two weeks before our wedding. They travelled for our wedding, were professional, prompt, and the guests loved the booth! Their prices are also amazing! I felt saved by Will and his crew for stepping in at the last hour and being there when I needed them. I hate to say it...but I struggle writing reviews. I don't enjoy it, but really feel like these guys deserve it. I would recommend this photo booth service without hesitation. Thanks so much!

I highly recommend Tom Keene. Tom is an exceptional Photographer. As a Photographer myself, I can tell you that some people just have a natural eye for it, a talent.. and he is one of them. The photojournalistic style in which he captures moments is stylish, modern, and hip, as well as romantic classic, and poignant. Tom is patient and generous with his subjects. He knows how to capture just the right moments without making them look staged, fake or cliche. He captures the authentic "emotion" and humor of any given moment so your photos become permanent glimpses of that special day. Many of the photos he takes will end up on your mantel or as screensavers, they are that touching and beautiful. Tom was dedicated to capturing the perfect shots all day, and will go the extra mile to do so. He's also a very lovely person to have around, a pleasant and smiling energy which is important and comes across in photos especially on the BIG day. Hes the perfect photographer for weddings as he is always THERE in the right places (you wont find yourself ever yelling out: "Where's the Photographer?!?!") Hes experienced enough to know where and when to be somewhere, and that's key. The photos turned out so beautiful..we were so impressed. They far exceeded our expectations.. and just when we thought we couldnt love them anymore, Tom showed us his talent in post production, which is almost as important. He edits photos beautifully. If youre looking for a Photographer for your wedding, engagement, or whatever special moment you need captured, Tom Keene is your guy. Very happy and satisfied customer. His rates are also amazing for the quality of work. You wont find anyone better. Thank you Tom! Youre the best!!

There are so many things to share about our experience with Tom! Immediately upon meeting him, we felt completely at ease in his hands. He was open to our ideas, but came in with a plan and artistic vision to guide him through our wedding day. Always conscious of the time and schedule, he captured a great amount of shots, each its own masterpiece! I can't express my happiness in having Tom as our wedding photographer and wholeheartedly recommend him.

Brad was AMAZING during my Dec. 22nd, 2017 Wedding. I couldn’t be happier with our choice to go with him as our wedding photographer. I had multiple people graciously comment on how professional, punctual, and talented he is. Brad is a very talented photographer, and I wouldn’t hesitate to hire him again for other events or family photos in the future. I will post some photos to show his incredible artistry when I get my pictures back. Don’t think twice about it, HIRE BRAD!!!!! You’ll get a great value, quality, professional, and caring photographer! Thanks Brad for everything! You took so much pressure and stress off of us during our wedding!

Brad is top notch. My wife and I hired him this past Saturday for our wedding. He was on time stayed a little extra and exceeded our expectations. He is a real artist. He is so instinctively quick and able to capture moments. He also has a strong crew. We opted for photos and video with Brad. We had children in our wedding party whom Brad photographed vivid and candidly. If anyone is in the market for a wedding photographer hire Brad on our recommendation, he could not have done a better job. Pure EXCELLENCE! Irene and Mark

We chose Alan and Ina from Sechrest Photos for our daughter's wedding. They were awesome. They were very professional and creative in where and what they chose to photograph. They arrived on time and were able to shoot all the family photos in a timely manner yet still allow time for those special shots of the bride and groom They took plenty of photos at the wedding and the reception but they were never too intrusive to interfere with the intimacy of the event. We felt they were a great value but most of all the pictures were better than we expected. We would definitely recommend them. Ted Freese

For context, we hired Tom for our engagement shoot. We wanted two locations for our engagement pictures and our wedding photographer (hired long before we found Tom) was charging us an exorbitant amount to do the second location. That's why we turned to Thumbtack--to find something more reasonably priced. I wasn't sure what to expect, especially given the large difference in prices between our original wedding photographer and Tom. But, my wife and I decided to give it a shot, and we couldn't be more happier with what we got. Tom was awesome and very professional. We wanted a sunrise shoot which meant we would have to get to the site at 6:30 AM. Tom was there before we were!!! Things only went smoothly from there. He knew exactly what he was doing and helped guide us through the shoot (because obviously, we had no idea what we were doing). He went above and beyond with respect to service and his pictures were amazing--we absolutely loved the quality and the timeliness with which he delivered them to us. In fact, we liked him so much, we booked him to do a second event (our rehearsal dinner). Tom was awesome and you can't go wrong hiring him. We would do it again in a second.

Tom is an excellent photographer, we couldn't have asked for better service for our wedding. Tom has a way of making you, the client, feel comfortable with the pictures that are being taken, and he makes your guests feel happy getting their pictures taken too! He also has a keen eye for perspectives that are unique, romantic, and artistic, and our moments became extra special because of this. Tom was perfectly on time, and made sure that all of our important pictures were taken with the time we had. For such a high caliber of work, his price is extremely worthwhile. I would recommend Tom in heartbeat to anyone that needs a photographer for their wedding day. If I could give him more than 5 stars, I would.

I hired Tom to be a photographer at my wedding in March 2017. I was specifically looking for someone who wouldn't need much direction and could get great candid shots, posed pictures, and environment pictures (I wanted to have pictures to remind me what it looked like after the Big Day!). He did so wonderfully! From starting contact, contract, to day of, and delivery of pictures afterward he was easy to work with and delivered exactly what he said he would. I would definitely recommend him to anyone in the southern California area.

Sheryl was the photographer at our wedding, and I cannot say enough about the amazing job she did. Everything from her communication to her professionalism was outstanding. She made everyone at the wedding feel comfortable and at ease. I was so impressed with the little things she did like making sure my dad has his boutonniere on before the ceremony and capturing the moments that I would never have thought of. Above all if you want a photographer to be creative and use her artistic skills to create breathtaking results, then Sheryl is the one!

Amazing work. My husband is rather picky about photograpy and we searched long and hard for the perfect photographer for our wedding.

She is very easy to work with and produces valuable photos. I would definitely recommend her for your needs. I know I will be using her again in the future. Thanks Sheryl!

We hired John to do our wedding photography and he was great from the start. Good communication and always answered any questions we had. We were a bit shy at first, but he helped ease us into being comfortable with taking our wedding photos. He could tell we weren't the kind of couple that took a lot of pictures together or were comfortable being the center of attention. He helped us get through it though and the wedding was a success. Thanks John for everything, especially with the little incident we had outside the venue, lol...you were a pleasure to work with! If you need a wedding photographer, do hire John, he is fantastic, such a nice guy. We would definitely hire him again! Anna and Alfonso

I hired Christopher and his team to shoot my engagement photos and wedding a couple years back. He himself did the engagement photos and the videography for the wedding while his team did the wedding photos and photo booth. I have to say, I LOVED the quality of his work. The wedding itself had a few rough patches, but him and his team kept everything running smooth on their side of things. They were both friendly and professional. It took a few months to have everything in hand (photos and video) but communication with Christopher was always clear and helpful. Definitely recommend his services!

I booked Copro Studio for my wedding photographer and videography. Christopher was amazing every step of the way. He was so kind and easy to work with and even got my difficult partner to feel comfortable in front of the camera. He gave us modern but timeless pictures and captured amazing moments. I honestly can't say enough nice things about him. Also, he and his team got the wedding party and the MOH & MOG's approval and everyone enjoyed having them there during the day. He captured my wedding perfectly.

Hey all, I had my anniversary a year ago and I decided to have a photoshoot with hubby. I found UmbrellaShot online. Guys if you want to have beautiful, colorful and amazing pictures with a lot of fun and very nice photographer then you have to get her. My husband very shy especially in front of camera. So in the middle of our photo session I can't recognize him. He was very relax and always smile, just because Umbrella was very polite, nice, calm and confident about everything she did. I refer her to my beautiful girlfriend who has wedding. And the pictures is amazing. I'll recommend Umbrella 100%. P.S. If you not sure what photo shoot you want to have and where, Umbrellashot will always recommend some theme and places for photoshoot.

She is an incredibly talented artist and is truly gifted at what she does - every photo session comes out MAGICAL.

She did our wedding photos/album as well, and all I could say was WOW! I am thankful to have Umbrella Shot as the one capturing some of the best moments of our life.

I wish I could have given Jess a 10 star rating!! My daughter had 9 days to plan her wedding. I put an ad up on Thumbtack hoping like crazy that we could find a photographer to just snap a few shots of a civil ceremony. We were thrilled when we saw Jess's portfolio and hired her. We started communicating with her about what my daughter really wanted to capture. Jess was absolutely delightful, graceful and professional - but was also fun to have with us on my daughter's special day. We had digital images in TWO days after the wedding!! They are beautiful and she captured some very precious moments that we will remember forever.

Charles is an amazing professional. He did both the engagement photo shoot and the wedding of my wife and I. I met him for the first time when he shot our engagement pictures. His calming presence immediately put me at ease. Not only did he choose a wonderful location and setting for the photo shoot, but he also came up with creative and thoughtful ideas for poses. My wife and I felt like superstars under the direction of a super photographer. It was way more fun than I could've imagined. Amazingly, Charles outdid himself 6 months later when he shot our wedding. We have friends who still rave about the pictures to this day. Charles has a keen eye for capturing the essence of an event, and the magical timing for being at the right place at the right time to capture those unforgettable moments. I truly can't say enough about his work. I would recommend him to the Obama's if they were looking for a photographer. On top of all his skill, he's an awesome human being with a great sense of humor, a dope husband to a beautiful wife and a dotting father to an adorable baby girl. Book Charles today and, like me, you will be raving about his work to everyone you know. I promise you will not be disappointed!

After unfruitful searches for a reasonably priced and quality wedding photographer online, Ceri reached out to me after I posted a request on SimplyBridal. Ceri was our photographer for two wedding occasions that fell within a week of a each other - an intimate, traditional religious ceremony in a downtown NYC church, and a large and more casual celebration of extended family and friends at an upstate restaurant on the Hudson River. She was our lone photographer, but never missed beat - she perfectly captured the mood of both occasions, as different as they were. Without needing much guidance on our end, she dived right into some pretty chaotic settings and began to snap away, all while giving us clear creative direction. Her attention to detail was impeccable and she noticed things that picked up very well on camera. In addition, Ceri was extremely flexible (she adjusted her schedule to accomodate a last minute time change) and adaptable (to different scenes, crowds and environments). On top of that, she was a total pro - she had traveled all the way from LA to shoot our two events, and spent time in the UK in between. While so much intercontinental travel can be stressful and draining, she was upbeat and kind enough to bring us a wedding gift from her trip! She is as thoughtful and classy as her work. Her pricing was also bargain (in fact, she blew the competition away) and we got a great value for the quality of her portfolio. She has a true talent, and I will cherish these photos forever. Ceri can really do it all, and I highly recommend her!

Working with Ceri was a real pleasure as she clearly loves her work. At our wedding, she was gracious--and unobtrusive when the situation called for it. Both the formal posed images and the more candid, documentary shots of the ceremony and party afterward are lovely. As a professional photographer myself, I appreciate her approach: documentary, using available light, excellent framing and use of color. Ceri will definitely memorialize your event in a way that you will treasure. Hire her and you will be very pleased!

I had been to a wedding before where the photobooth company didn't show up until the final hour. I told JoAnn how nervous I was about that happening at my wedding and she made me feel reassured that it wouldn't happen. And it didn't! She was so responsive throughout the process and let me choose the back drop for my photos. And I probably drove her nuts with the name/date design artwork on the photos and she was very patient with me and pleasant. Our attendant, was great at making sure all the guests left one copy of the photos and signed our guest book. They provided really great props . I could not be more happy with this company.

When looking for a photo booth to have at my wedding Imagesby2 was the only company I found that checked all the boxes - on-site attendant, custom backgrounds and logos for your event, print-outs for the guests, and easy-to-access digital versions for us and the guests.

Samantha was ah-may-zing! My husband and I haven't received our pictures yet but by looking at her other work we are assured that our pictures will turn out great!! Samantha came to the site on time and even had her husband assist her during the photo shoot. My husband and I did a photo shoot at the beach which was absolutely epic! The sunset displayed shades of pink, purple, and orange which was gorgeous. My husband and I adore Samantha and her approachable ways as a photographer. Samantha is both professional and friendly at the same time. We will definitely recommend her to other friends and family! She made our day today and yes, I decided to trash my dress in the waves that were crashing at me which I do not regret. Five stars and up for Samantha Rae Photography!

What can we say about Cornell? She is above and beyond - She was more than we could have hoped for in a photographer. Cornell worked with our small budget and took STUNNING photos! She was very clear, communicative, relaxed, friendly, and she made us feel like a million bucks. We were so nervous for our engagement photos and she completely put us at ease; she is so positive, funny, and incredibly talented (don't tell her, but she could charge SO much more for what she does!). We we're so incredibly fortunate to have found her. I feel so beautiful through her lense - our wedding photos are nothing short of remarkable. Her second shooter was also phenomenal and we highly recommend her as well (Trust us, they are a GREAT team). I hope we get the chance to work with them again in the near future. Meanwhile we are so, so grateful - THANKS CORNELL!!!

Cornell did an absolutely INCREDIBLE job shooting our wedding this June 2017. From the first phone call through the finished photos, there wasn’t a second I didn’t enjoy working with her. She was incredibly sweet, fun and helpful, both before and during the wedding. Her and her second photographer, Kearston, knew exactly what they were doing and set to work immediately after arriving at the venue on the day of the wedding. I was so impressed with their ability to just get to work and how they were able to capture so many incredible shots I never even knew they were around to take! Our finished photos are so beautiful and will be a keepsake for us forever. Hiring Cornell was one of the best decisions I made for our wedding. If you are looking for a photographer for your wedding, you can stop because you found her in Cornell!

They came completed prepared for anything, even a bandaid for my son. We haven't seen the photos yet since the wedding was yesterday but I have complete faith that they are going to look amazing!

Ashley was perfect! She was punctual, efficient, thoughtful, observant, and creative. She scoped out our venue before my bridesmaids and I arrived from getting our hair and make up done and figured out tons of places and ways to take pictures. She was really flexible and understanding about changes in the day and plans. Also she doubled as a messenger between some of the other vendors when we needed to change things around to accomodate taking pics and such. I was really worried initially that I would feel overwhelmed or precoccupied by the camera but Ashely was amazing at blending into the background and capturing all these magical shots without being in the way. Besides all that she was super sweet and cute. I just loved her and would personally recommend her to anyone! I love her and her pictures.

Ashley took our family photos recently. She was really accommodating when it came to scheduling and was really great with our little ones. There are a lot of photographers out there and I am glad we lucked out finding someone like Ashley on thumbtack that does this full time and not as just a hobby. Money well spent and I will be recommending her to all of our friends and family!

I was referred to Attila by a mutual friend who's wedding he'd photographed the year before. I had seen her engagement and wedding pictures and was so impressed by the quality and his artistic approach. I contacted Attila and discussed my own wedding, he was very professional and easy to work with from the beginning. During the engagement shoot and the wedding he was personable and made us feel extremely comfortable, his directions and guidance were very helpful - he kept us focused on ourselves and the important part of the event: celebrating our love and our union. The pictures came out gorgeous, I couldn't believe that was us - he made it all look like a fairy tale! I am recommending Attila to all my friends and would recommend him to anyone planning their wedding for his professionalism, artistic vision and personable nature!

Having Attila as our wedding photographer is something we’ll always be grateful for! He was great, very dedicated and his pictures are amazing – many of them are now printed and showing in our new living room. I will never get tired of looking at them and they are always being noticed by anyone who visits. We definitely recommend Attila to anyone looking for a wedding photographer!

Attila was our wedding photographer and we couldn't have been happier. He made us look so amazing and really captured what we wanted for our engagements and wedding photos. He is so personable, fun, patient, and genuinely excited about weddings. He tailored the photo shoots to what we wanted but also gave us professional insight and suggestions. We are definitely happy!
