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!

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.

We hired Joe as our Wedding Photographer this past may. We didn't start looking for a photographer til about 3 weeks before the event. But Joe did an amazing job for being given such short notice. He and his assistants were very professional. From what we'very seen from the proofing gallery, all of the pictures are beautiful.

Danielle was our wedding photographer for our April 10th wedding. She was amazing! She was very easy to work with and very personalable. Very easy to get along with personality. I felt very comfortable around her and she was really good at directing us for different positions for pictures. You could tell she loves what she does. Her passion really comes out in her work. She also loved my picture ideas that I suggested as well. She really captured the moment for us. Can't wait to see all the pictures! I would be excited to use her again for a future!!

My first experience with Kenny was an email exchange. The exchange was friendly, energetic and positive and set the tenor and tone for the entire experience. A phone conversation ensued, and that was again positive and friendly and upbeat. In fact, Kenny is not only a professional, but he’s one who is enthusiastic about his chosen métier. I mentioned that I’m a serious amateur photographer and he immediately jumped at the chance to talk about his passion. In other words, Kenny is not only interested in the business end of things but truly enjoys his work and talking about it. I immediately felt comfortable with him. Kenny was the first of several photographers from Thumbtack that were on my list of contacts. But, as a result of the very positive conversation I had with him, I decided to hire him right then and there. The day of the photo session Kenny was ready to go on time. He welcomed me warmly into his studio and we proceeded to create some very nice looking professional head shots and 3/4 shots. Probably because Kenny remembered talking to me about my interest in photography, he explained things as he went along such as how and why he was lighting his subject in a certain way. He loves “talking shop” and I think this is a sign of someone dedicated to his art. I think this kind of individual makes the best professional. And the proof is borne out of the results. Kenny created some very nice photos about which I’ve already received numerous compliments and enthusiastic praise from family, friends and colleagues alike. I would definitely hire Kenny again. And… I still enjoy talking to him about photography. We still exchange emails and he’s still friendly and genuine. I can highly recommend Kenny to you for your professional photo needs.

We needed a event photographer for our 40th anniversary celebration. It was held at South Coast Winery & Resort in Temecula, Ca. The event was four hours. Landi Maduro and her team worked with our daughter to capture this special event for our family and friends. What impressed me about Landi and her team was that they were on time, very professional, but what made our day was the "personal touch" in how they went about capturing this special time for us. The quality of their work is just awesome. The extra added feature and quite the hit with our family and guests was the "Photo Booth". The pictures were developed instantly and was a nice little memento gift from us for our guests. There isn't anything I could think of that wasn't already fulfilled from our experience with Bluechild Entertainment. We would most definitely recommend and hire Landi and her team again. Thank-you Debbie Williams Poway, Ca

Hugh was amazing to work with from prepping for the event until after the event. He was professional, friendly and super helpful. He was able to bring along a friend who was equally as great. The guests at the event loved both of them and inquired about who the photographers were after the event! And of course we were more than happy with the quality of the photos! Great work!!

Palo is honestly the best wedding photographer and he makes breathtaking videos!!! First, we hired him for our engagement shoot and after we have seen the lovely pictures we had to book him for our wedding day. He is a true artist and made both of us feel very comfortable in front of camera. The images and video came out amazing and after I posted everything on my social media my friends instantly started begging me for his number. Palo, thanks to your amazing talent we have pictures that we will cherish for a lifetime. This review is for all the couples out there looking for the RIGHT photographer; Please do not look any further and book Palo today!!! I promise you won't be disappointed. He ROCKS⚡️

I came across LilyLove 5 years ago when I was on the market for a wedding photographer. She was a new, emerging artist however her work has never faltered. Although she didn't shoot my wedding ( emergency cancellation on my part) she did deliver on the first of many family and lifestyle sessions. She has helped us document the growth and expansion of my family. Each time tastefully, perfectly edited and executed. She's not just a point and shoot type person. She objective, will stop to fix your hair or get tasteful in the moment shots. Each second she captures is one you can definitely relive and get lost in. Each handmade set up and holiday session is definitely one of a kind and adds the element of living a fairy tale. Her talent is an art and so much larger than just wedding coverage, it's life as you would love to remember it through loving and fun eyes. It's an honor and privilege to be her client.

Corey photographed our whole combined extended family along with separate group shots, for my parents 60th wedding anniversary, AND did a amazing job. Seriously... I hope he post some of the pictures he took because I don't think they could of come out any better. There was a total of 20 adults and 7 children, including a set of one year old squiggly twins. Corey was calm and cool and didn't get annoyed. We felt unhurried. He was creative along with being aware of placement and sunlight shawdowing etc. He suggested two locations which we landed in Pomona at the Claremont Colleges. It was perfect and a beautiful sunny day. Not only reasonably but quick processing through dropbox. Some of the family members wanted the pics on a flash drive stick. We didn't think of bringing them to the photoshoot, so I ordered them from Amazon and had them sent to his house. He downloaded all the #600+ pictures on the drives and hand delivered them to our home. No charge and very willing. Also edited the pics that we needed edited without any extra charge. ALSO ... want to note that he was punctual and available to take pictures as long as we wanted. We will for sure use him again and highly recommend Corey to you!
