My wife and I hired Triumph Photobooth for our wedding last November. They were fantastic! They were on time, everyone of our guests told us how professional they were, and our favorite was how they customized our photo cards with a lion and a river. We both have those last names.

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.

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!

Richard was the photographer for our wedding. Richard has an amazing talent for photography. He is professional, on time, and has a great eye. Richard busted his butt for us,long after any other photographers would have called it a day. Richard was full of great ideas, and more then willing to roll with any suggestions. Richard had more ideas then we had time for.That was too bad, because if we had all day, we would have had even more great photos. I would recommend Richard for any of your photography needs.

We contacted Joe to be the photographer for our wedding. He not only did an amazing job but was also very prepared and did all of the research regarding location that he felt he needed to prior to our event. And our pictures came out perfect. I would highly recommend Joe to anyone that would need any professional photos.

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!

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?)

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!

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.

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.
