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!

Brad is truly a one of a kind photographer. I will surely recommend him to my family and friends and I am sure he will be my wedding photographer. I still find myself staring at our photos he did for us each day. He is creative, talented, and professional. He made my family and I feel comfortable from the first meeting and we always trusted his vision. If you are looking for modern yet classic photography then Brad is your guy!! Hands down THE best.

My husband and I are very pleased with Sheryl and her assistant Alex. She was extremely helpful and generous when shooting our wedding and the "getting ready " photos. We had a minor hiccup when there was a change to the contract that we agreed upon, but once she realized we were dissatisfied she went above and beyond to make us happy. I don't believe I could have selected a better photographer to shoot our big day...and she was very affordable. When my wedding began to feel like a disaster she was there to calm me down and was willing to stay late to shoot everything that we wanted. We were able to get our wedding back on schedule but it was very nice to know she was willing to stay for time that she was not paid for just to capture all of the things that were important to us on our big day. We both cannot wait to receive our pictures back from her. Thank you Sheryl!!!!!!!!

I recommend Danielle very highly. My husband and I did an engagement photoshoot last night. Danielle was on time, very fun and adventurous for creative pictures, puts you at ease, she loves what she does and that makes it great because you know the work will be good. We had a sunset shoot and it was perfect! She knew where to go, how to pose and also was open for more ideas if we wanted. We were there before the sunset so had fun before during and after it. We cannot wait to see all the photos! Thank you Danielle :) PS: she will be our wedding photographer as well.

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.

Nicole and her husband photographed our wedding and we couldn't be happier! They are so nice and professional. They listened to what type of photos we wanted and took a wide variety of pictures. They captured the moments perfectly and really took it to the next level with the posed photos I asked them for that we took in a separate location from the ceremony and reception itself. One of the most important things to me was to get some pictures that were very unique and highly stylized (not typical wedding photos). They really came through for us and delivered exactly what I wanted as well as taking fantastic wedding pictures that tell the whole story of our day from start to finish. The last thing I'd like to say about them is that they were so great to work with. During all the commotion and stress leading up to and during the day itself, it was important to me to work with people who are truly nice people as well as talented at what they do. 100% professional. I would highly recommend them!!

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.

Awesome! We all know pictures are one of the most important parts of the wedding. What an amazing crew this guy has. I had them for the entire big day. He did all of the getting ready shots. Even had a drone to get some amazing air photos. The wedding was flawless. Russ even put together a timeline for me because I was so overwhelmed. They got every shot I could have possibly asked for! They were extremely professional and very helpful. I honestly can not say enough good things about this team. Customer service is huge to me. They went beyond exceptional customer care. You will be happy you chose them! Thanks again for everything! You made our day a little bit better by being a part of it! -Marissa
