Jason was very helpful and responsive. The guy who ran the photobooth for the event was not great, but the photobooth and pictures were amazing. I didn't think the quality or amount of props was great. The roaming photographer was good. They also did a guest book for me with the photos which was awesome, but again, the photobooth guy did not help facilitate this or encourage people to sign the book. Their prices are very reasonable and I would definitely use them again but ask for a different person to run the booth and more props.

I really enjoyed working with Triumph Photobooth. My photographer, William, was awesome! He was punctual and very friendly. My guests really loved him and had so much fun with the photobooth. I will definitely use them again.

I'll start off by saying that I do my research, so when I decided to look for a photographer to take some much overdue headshots, it was no different. I checked out the portfolios of many photographers and selected Adam Southhard of Best LA Headshots. I am very happy with the pictures he took and the experience that I had. Adam Southard is a very talented photographer; very professional, patient and timely. My research paid off. 5 Stars - I highly recommend Best LA Headshots.

I've been to many photographers before, but they're not up to par compared to my head shots Ive taken with Adam. I actually had to have him edit a recent headshot I took by another photographer even though he didn't take the pic himself. I highly recommend you check out his work. Also, for the people of color, he knows what lighting works with different shades of skin complexions - so no worries, he's got you covered! :) Thank you Adam!

We hired Will to shoot two large group photos for a corporate training and deliver prints by the next business day and he completed the job seamlessly and professionally. He was easy to get in touch with and very reliable. I coordinated this training in 15 different markets with 15 different photographers, and Will was one of our favorites! I would recommend Will for any photography job in the area!

Finding the perfect photographer who would document our special day was not an easy task. My husband and I met with a few photographers and each time we would leave saying to ourselves that we need to keep looking. So we kept searching online for vendors until i found LADigital photo through Simply Bridal. Tom Keene of LADigital Photo did our engagement and wedding photos. He was extremely professional, friendly and funny. He has a good eye for detail and he is able to capture those special moments that would last a lifetime. On our wedding day we asked him one big favor, which was a photo to announce the coming of our little one. After 10 days my husband told me that our pregnancy announcement photo was up on LA Digital's Photo's page. The photo was so beautiful, i teared up just looking at it. I tell you, Tom and Kaitie were a dream to work with!!! They are amazing, they went above and beyond the call of duty. I couldnt think of anyone else who would have done a better job. We would highly recommend their services and would use them again in the future.

Tom and Lara were amazing. I had a last minute request and Tom was quick to help and accommodate. Unfortunately he was already booked the weekend I needed but Lara, one of his photographers was fantastic. She really listened to my needs and made a great day very special. Couldn't be happier with the service and the way the pictures came out. -Brandt

I can't say enough about Ivan! He captured my son and daughter-in-laws wedding and reception better then we could have imagined! After receiving the photos, we all gathered and watched a slide show and re-lived all of the beautiful and fun moments, as well as moments some of us missed, but Ivan captured! He is an incredible photographer and a very professional and kind man! I look forward to using him again in the future, and I highly recommend both his photography excellence as well as his reasonable fee's!

It was a wonderful experience! We surprised the bachelorette with a photo session and it really worked out well! The bridesmaids didn't know each other from before the wedding so it was great to get everyone together in front of the camera as before the big day. This photographer was so professional, patient, and kind. He did such a great job with our group and we cannot wait to see the final product!!

We needed a photographer who understood our vision for a project we were doing involving taking quick head shots of people within our church and Ivan was great! He had quick turn around on photos and we'd definitely use him again if we needed another photographer. Very professional, showed up on time and ready to work. Easy to access by phone and email. We were pleased with the end product!

Kelli was great! She offered us advise on the best time of day to have our beach wedding, and arrived early on the day. We were so impressed with her energy and insight in finding the perfect places for us to pose. She also did a lot of candid shots. Kelli is very personable and very knowledgeable about lighting. Working with her was very easy, we were able to relax and enjoy the experience. The pics we have seen are awesome, and I know the rest will be as well! I highly recommend Kelli to anyone looking for a professional photographer.

Tom was wonderful photographer!! He was so professional and easy to work with! Showed up on time and took amazing pictures for my engagement ceremony!

I was in search of a professional photographer for family portraits. Low and behold I found Thumbtack and Tom (of Tovicand Photography) found me. Tom epitomizes professionalism while still maintaining a fun, casual vibe which allowed for the product of great photographs to emerge. I'd definitely recommend Tom, especially if you have kids, as a photographer and I plan on using his services again.

I would first like to say, I NEVER write reviews but Jami is so great I truly felt like taking the time to share this. If you're looking for an awesome professional photographer that will take amazing photos then Jami is your girl. Not only was she easy to work with, responsive, timely and all around just lovely to deal with - she took the most beautiful photos. She blends right in with the crowd as though she's one of your friends capturing special moments. I loved working with her so much, I've already hired her again for another event. This was my first time using Thumbtack and it was the best because of Jami. I wish I could give her 6 stars for everything.

Jami was a pleasure to work with, and provided us with a great set of photos from our graduate student welcome event. She was very responsive and flexible from the start, working with us to fit our needs. On the day of the event, Jami arrived early and was ready to go. Afterwards, she worked quickly to send us the final product. We are happy to have worked with her, and would recommend her services to all looking for an event photographer!

I worked with Amina Touray when shooting my album cover in May 2013, which ended up with a NAACP Image Nomination! We shot outside in Pasadena during 3-4 hours and I felt very comfortable and relaxed in her presence. Amina and her make up artist were on time, ready for me and listened to my concerns and specific needs regarding the make up and angles of the shooting my body. I was very impressed with her way of giving me instructions and feedback, which helped me get what I wanted-the perfect pic for an album cover. The only thing that could have been better, was the area to get my make up done at, but that's more of a convienience issue than a must. Amina is by far one of the most talented photographers I've worked with, and I've since done 2 more shoots with her, as well as purchased her services for 2 friends of mine, so that they could get to feel like a superstar for a day, like I did.

John is Awesome. Very professional. Very motivated. You can tell that he loves what he does & that makes it better for whoever he's working with. He did a photoshoot for me & the outcome was amazing. He's also very prompt to get my pictures back to me (which is a relief when I've had photographers take months without any communication). Overall, I love him & his work.

I hired Tony to take pictures for my son's 2nd birthday party. Working with Tony was super easy and he was very professional the entire time. After our initial contact, he reached out the day before to make sure that he had all the party information. His pictures were great to go through and he got some great shots of my son and his friends. The quality of the photos is excellent. He also told me that the pictures would be sent 2 days later and he actually did it! That was very impressive. I have worked with different photographers and when they say one thing, I often don't get my hopes up, but Tony did a great job and in the time frame he said he would. I would recommend him to anyone and now know who I can use in future years.

He truly did an OUTSTANDING job. I look forward to working with him in the future. I wish he lived closer. I feel bad he had to drive a little distance but he was okay with that. Please give him a shot. I promise you won't regret it. THANK YOU again Tony.

I found Natalie on Thumbtack. I was looking for an affordable but professional photographer for my wedding day and that's exactly what I got. I am so glad that I chose her. She was so sweet and professional. She did a consultation with us before the wedding and we went through a list of moments and things that I wanted her to capture specifically. I am very happy with the end result. The pictures came out beautifully. I especially like the way that she ushers the effect of natural sunlight. She did a beautiful job capturing our special day! I would definitely recommend Natalie!

We hired DigiSnap for my baby boy shower. We told John, the owner and photographer, what the theme was going to be (A Little Birdie Told Me) and he was totally on board. I walk in to the venue where the shower was held and he was already there setting up. His props and background were on point and in line with the theme. It was a cute little backdrop with clouds and birds! I loved his creativity and not to mention his professionalism and reasonable prices! The photos turned out great and the guests had a blast with the props! I highly recommend DigiSnap to anyone throwing any event! I'll definitely use them again!
