My now husband and I hired Triumph Photobooth to be a part of our wedding day fun. We were in communication with Jason who was always responsive and worked with our budget. He was quick to reply and got our pictures to us quickly. The day of we had Don as our attendant and he was great! He arrived on time and quickly set up. He was friendly and helped make the photobooth be a great experience for all our guests. He even made sure that my husband and I got a picture together, which I was glad because we may have missed it if he hadn't stopped us to take a pic. We would definitely use them again and recommend them for any event. Thank you Triumph Photobooth for being a part of our wedding!!!

Dayvid was my wedding photographer at Glen Ivy Golf Club in Corona, CA for 4 hours. Even when we were going over our time, he was nice enough to not charge us when we went over our time. He was very easy to work with and had some neat ideas on some of the photos he was going to take. He took hundreds of photos to make sure we didn't miss any moments and was able to capture pictures of people and things that I didn't have a chance to see. On top of his quality service and photos, he was very affordable! I would definitely recommend Dayvid to anyone looking for quality photos that won't break the bank!

We stumbled upon Thumbtack in search for a photographer (that wasn't ourselves or our friends) for our wedding. Brad's photos showed his dedication to getting the perfect shot. So we hired him for our fashionista wedding on the beach. Not only Brad affordable, but accommodated the drive to Santa Barbara, and was 100% amazing! He brought a second photographer (for an additional fee), carried multiple cameras and lenses, and made sure they both fulfilled all of our requests. He took photos from multiple locations, while laying on his back, from above on a balcony, and even across a pond. His photos are stunning! I would definitely hire him again if given an opportunity. You are lucky to reserve him...if you can!

My wife, Teresa, and I were fortunate enough to have Richard Hartog as our wedding photographer. Richard was nothing other than professional, endearing, and added a sense of humor to our amazing day. Richard has an eye for detail and had the ability to see our wedding experience the way we envisioned it. At the church, he captured the ceremony beautifully while remaining stealth and considerate of the event. He arrived at the hotel early that day to take shots of the bride and bridal party getting ready and stayed until the last guest had left the reception late that evening. We received the photo package within only a few short days and they were perfect. Richard took well over 500 photos for us capturing every detail of the entire day. Even months after the wedding, Richard still keeps in contact with us to see how we're doing and how married life is treating us. We will recommend Richard Hartog to anyone who is looking for an amazing photographer!

Tom is a really great photographer. The day of my wedding I was nervous and also I'm not a good model for photos but Tom makes me feel comfortable and try to make relax. Also he help us a lot on our reception wedding because we didn't have any idea about the dance and all that stuff, he was really nice and cool. I recommend him 100% percent.

Jami did the videography for our wedding at Castle Green in 2008. She was WONDERFUL! In fact, I had decided not to do videography at the wedding after reviewing a number of terrible, cheesy video samples, but then I found Jami. Her work is classy, tasteful, and timeless. She captured every special moment of the day. My whole family loves Jami's work -- my dad is actually the most obsessed with it and watched the video a bunch of times after the wedding. We watch the video instead of going through the photographs because it brings us back to the day instantly. Although, I will also add that Jami did give us a number of still images from her video work that are also beautiful and artistic. One other thing worth mentioning is that she was very professional onsite while shooting and didn't get in everyone's faces to get her shots. She was there, but she was discreet and still managed to capture beautiful images. My sister is getting married this spring and is going to have Jami video her wedding. I cannot recommend Jami more highly. Trust me, Jami's video will be your favorite keepsake!

Joshua gave me exactly the headshot I was looking for. He really listened to me, and he was great at getting a good "look" from me. I love that I had so many shots to choose from. Technically everything was excellent--lighting, retouching, etc. Also Josh's communication skills were really good. We had to go back and forth a bit for scheduling, but he always got back to me right away and he was really flexible. I also thought the cost was very reasonable. I would recommend Josh to anyone looking for photography of any kind--wedding, product, portrait, whatever.

I can proudly say that Natalia has been our family photographer for more than four years now. She is an incredibly talented artist and is truly gifted at what she does - every photo session comes out MAGICAL. My favorite ones are Christmas themed as Natalia is able to capture some truly special moments and reflect the spirit of the holiday. 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. She is professional, easy going, super fast in processing the pictures, and just awesome all the way around. Thank you, Natalia!!

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.

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!

Jordan was very responsive to all of my questions (answered within 1-2 hours) and booking a shoot with him was a breeze. He was willing to travel from the west side to USC to take my grad photos and boy am I grateful! We got to work right away on campus and he was willing to explore the campus to find the least crowded but still beautiful spots. He has a great eye for light and I appreciated him showing me the photos he took along the way. Jordan was fantastic and I would highly recommend him to anyone needing graduation photos, headshots, or anything in between. Thanks Jordan!

We have a wonderful collection of memories thanks to Roxana and we will be happy to work with her again!
