Triumph Photobooth did an amazing job running the photobooth for my wedding reception. Jason was very patient with all my email correspondence, and accommodated my weird DIY bride antics and let me design my own background for the printouts. Everyone at the wedding loved the setup, the props, and the souvenir printouts. The attendant showed up on time and was super professional despite our drunken shenanigans. I would definitely hire them again for a party in the future!

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!

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!

He would even take pictures of other people taking pictures. He was so smooth! If you are looking for a great photographer for a great price, Brad is the one for you! Thank you so much Brad for your wonderful work! We really appreciate you!

For context, we hired Tom for our engagement shoot. We wanted two locations for our engagement pictures and our wedding photographer (hired long before we found Tom) was charging us an exorbitant amount to do the second location. That's why we turned to Thumbtack--to find something more reasonably priced. I wasn't sure what to expect, especially given the large difference in prices between our original wedding photographer and Tom. But, my wife and I decided to give it a shot, and we couldn't be more happier with what we got. Tom was awesome and very professional. We wanted a sunrise shoot which meant we would have to get to the site at 6:30 AM. Tom was there before we were!!! Things only went smoothly from there. He knew exactly what he was doing and helped guide us through the shoot (because obviously, we had no idea what we were doing). He went above and beyond with respect to service and his pictures were amazing--we absolutely loved the quality and the timeliness with which he delivered them to us. In fact, we liked him so much, we booked him to do a second event (our rehearsal dinner). Tom was awesome and you can't go wrong hiring him. We would do it again in a second.

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 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!

John was awesome. Extremely professional and everyone at the wedding had a blast taking pictures in his booth. Had an open booth which for a lot more people in it. He even went the extra mile as to custom make a sign for us,at no extra charge that had our hashtag for the wedding on it. He did have a slight issue with his software that didn't allow him to print out the pictures instantly. Understandable.S*** happens and it was the first time it has ever happened to him. Everyone still had a blast and took tons of pictures that were all available online for people to view. Will definitely recommend him to any and everyone and will be using him again if we have any other events.

When looking for a photo booth to have at my wedding Imagesby2 was the only company I found that checked all the boxes - on-site attendant, custom backgrounds and logos for your event, print-outs for the guests, and easy-to-access digital versions for us and the guests. All this, and they were very reasonably priced and excellent at communicating throughout! The attendant we had seemed like he was having as much fun as the guests and he really helped them get into the spirit!

She is a very flexible, friendly, and kind spirited photographer. She enjoys her work very much, and is willing to help you reach your ideas and hopes for good pictures. She did my graduation pictures and successfully captured a very important time in my life! She understands the importance of connecting with you so you may feel comfortable enough to take great photos! I would recommend to anyone in need of graduation photos, wedding photos, modeling photos, and more.

I got the pictures today and me and my husband are amazed by her work. The pictures are literally AMAZING!!!! I would definitely encourage anyone looking for a photographer to pick her 100%!

Well I think the best review isn’t really a review at all--it’s the fact of hiring someone another time! Which is what I did with Greg. He created some wonderful portraits for me and my family and then when my company needed a photographer, I recommended Greg and he did a great job again! He shot an event for the company and did a superb job and they too have called him again when executive headshots were needed. Let me also say that he is just such a nice guy, so low-key and unassuming, that he naturally makes everyone feel so relaxed during a shoot. And I usually become nervous when I’m photographed but not with Greg. He just made the whole process so effortless and fun from beginning to end. A very consummate professional in all aspects. I plan on having him do new headshots for me in a couple of months!
