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!!!
I hired Desert Rose for a Photobooth at my 1930's Speakeasy Wedding. They were outstanding! They were flexible with my ever changing wedding schedule and even stayed a little over for some last minuet shots. My guests had so much fun with their props I swear at one point half of my wedding guests were at the photo booth! We have an endless amout of amazing pictures that will last a lifetime of memories. Thanks Will! You were great!
Tom was very professional, responsible and good person over all.My husband and i discussed after the wedding that having him as our photographer was one of our best wedding decisions.Not only did our pictures turn out beautifully - but he was incredibly easy to work with from beginning to end.We highly suggest meeting with Tom and booking him for any upcoming photo needs you may have - he's worth every penny! He really is talented and an amazing photographer! Thank you Tom! Alina and Leo
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!
Kelli and her husband did my wedding photography. They did an AMAZING job! We loved all of the photos! They had them all edited and given to us quicker than I expected! Plus, they were so nice, friendly, and super easy to work with! I would totally recommend them as photographers!!
Joe showed true professionalism in his work as a photographer for a small wedding in my home. He was punctual, courteous and showed extreme care in not infringe on the occasion while carrying out his work. I highly recommend Joe.
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!
Grant was fantastic to work with. I was in a bit of a pinch finding a photographer for a wedding proposal. He was wonderful to work with and very accommodating to my last minute request. Highly recommend.
I hired Dino for my small wedding ceremony. He arrived the wedding place ever earlier than us. Although the ceremony only took 20 minutes, Dino made my time worthy. He is conscientious and took plenty of my wedding pictures. After the ceremony, he found beautiful street scenes for us to have more photos. Dino knows various of poses that looks nice on photos.
Packages prices are very affordable comparing to other photographers in my city. Samer showed up 15 minutes before time and was very patient and didn't rush me to take the photos and go.
I loved how dedicated he was to getting the perfect shots. He recommended great locations. He was also very pet friendly with our English bulldogs.
Anita and Chris were the most AMAZING photographers for our wedding! They knew exactly what we wanted, they got all the photos on our check list, and they were very reasonable and honest about the time frame we had. Our wedding location was also on their bucket list, so being able to have them there was extra special. The photos turned out amazingly spectacular! I hope to work with them again in the future (maybe a maternity shoot?)
April was awesome to work with!! We have had some bad experiences in the past with photographers and she did an amazing job! I would highly recommend her and will definitely be calling her again if we are in her area!! Thank you April :)
My wife and I hired Laura and Erica at The Vision Field to be the videographers at our wedding and it ended up being one of the best decisions we made throughout our entire lengthy wedding planning process. First of all, Laura and Erica were an absolute pleasure to work with. They were always extremely quick to respond to all of our questions whether they be related to the type of equipment they would be using or the type of videography we wanted them to capture. During our planning meeting with them over the phone they also knew how to ask us all the right questions in order to make sure they would provide us with exactly the type of service we were expecting. And they were always happy and full of energy, which somehow made us even more excited for the big day as it approached. When the wedding day came they arrived early and were fully prepared with all of their equipment. Our ceremony was at a Catholic church, our reception was in the backyard of a private residence, and we stopped for wedding party photos at a third location in between, and throughout all of this movement Laura and Erica were always able to keep up with the group without us having to worry about them. What actually made us most happy with The Vision Field, in fact, is how they managed to capture every single important moment of our wedding day without ever distracting or getting in the way of us or any of our guests. We hardly noticed that they were there at all, and yet they still ended up delivering incredible footage that perfectly captured every aspect of our ceremony and reception. Whenever my wife and I relive our wedding memories by watching and listening to all the high-quality video and audio, we feel as if we're still there, and in this way Laura and Erica have made our wedding last forever. They're not only videographers and photographers but also musicians and audio engineers, and they therefore know exactly how to record and deliver a perfect product package. We certainly made the right choice by asking The Vision Field to be there with us on our big day and we're thrilled with all that they have done for us. They are good people and experienced professionals, and we fully recommend that you choose to work with them too!
I had the decision of choosing amongst a varying amount of photographers, however, when I come across Dreannworks the pictures just looked to have a unique touch to them. From the costumer service to the quality of work, Dreannworks is definitely a great option. I was impressed by the great pictures and editing that was offered all for a reasonable price. Highly recommend for your photography needs.
Yanira took amazing pictures for our wedding. Our wedding was in Long Beach and she captured every moment. The best part was when we made it on time for the sunset and great moments. Yanira thought of everything and she is very professional.
She was fantastic all around. She arrived early to get set up. She took tons of pictures but you hardly knew she was there. She was so respectful of the wedding party and guests and she got lots of candid pictures which was what the bride wanted. We cannot wait to see her pictures!
Stephanie was so patient and understanding with us! We actually showed up about 10 minutes late and she used that time to scope out the location to make sure we shot in the absolute best places. What an angel! This was me and my partner's first photoshoot and we were a little nervous but Stephanie immediately made us feel comfortable. Within minutes we were laughing, giggling, and we forget there was even a camera! The pictures came out spectacular and I cannot be more grateful for what Stephanie has captured. The picture I attached was perfect timing and that encapsulates the way she photographs, her timing is everything!!! I can't wait to get these printed and put up in our apartment. For those of you who might be nervous, she is a great photographer for first-timers. She isn't afraid to get dirty for the perfect shot and her smile and warmness makes you feel at home.
Jacqueline was everything I wanted and more in a photographer. She has a wonderful eye for detail and is very easy to work with. She was able to capture so many beautiful moments. I will forever treasure the photos she took.
Yana was just all around awesome in photographing our wedding!! She came early to scout out the location, was super professional but also so friendly. My then-fiancé hates taking photos in general, but she made it so easy! She was so patient too with all the hustle and bustle of the whole event! I’m still waiting on the photos (about 4-6weeks wait time) but from what she sent me so far, they look amazing.
