    From start to finish, Will was very professional and so helpful during our event. This was our first time using a professional photographer at our event and we are more than pleased with the outcome. We received a lot of positive feedback from the golfers and they all seemed to enjoy getting their team picture at the end of the day. Thank you Will for everything! See you next year.

    We booked Desert Rose's photo booth for our wedding and we were so impressed by the equipment, especially the giant screen and the inflatable LED backdrop. They even custom made a theme for the photo strips to match our invitations perfectly.

    This review is long overdue. They stepped in with a photo booth for my wedding on 08/06/2016 after the people we originally booked fell through less than two weeks before our wedding. They travelled for our wedding, were professional, prompt, and the guests loved the booth! Their prices are also amazing! I felt saved by Will and his crew for stepping in at the last hour and being there when I needed them. I hate to say it...but I struggle writing reviews. I don't enjoy it, but really feel like these guys deserve it. I would recommend this photo booth service without hesitation. Thanks so much!

    Wonderful experience!
    The staff were extremely professional. They brought fantastic props for everyone to use and were flexible with all of our guests. Before our event, Will took tremendous care in making sure we were happy with our layout and design. Most importantly, the pictures came out great! We could not have been happier and highly recommend Desert Rose Photography.

    We booked Desert Rose for a company event, and couldn't be more happy. Will was professional, on-time, and stayed in communication leading up to the event. The photo booth was a big hit, and the pictures came out great. We loved the added company logo to the photos. We also booked Desert Rose to have a photographer for the event as well, and cannot wait to get the photos back. This was a last minute booking, and so happy with our decision.

    Will & Desert Rose Photography was FANTASTIC! I threw a scavenger hunt party moving from one location using his video booth set up to my second location using his photo booth. He was immensely helpful in helping solidify logistics & was highly communicative and transparent throughout the process. DRP went above and beyond by creating a second template for the restaurant I hosted at, in order for me to secure a better venue rental deal. He had great suggestions to help get my job done and his entire package, which included a very fun scrapbook and three mini me custom made photo booth props, was reasonably priced and punctual upon delivery. If I find I have future fun ideas needing his services, Desert Rose Photography will be my first call!!

    I was super happy with Desert Rose Photography. Will was able to accommodate all the changes I threw at him. Everything was great the day of the event. They arrived on time, they set up in a timely manner, the props were great, and my guest were very happy with the amenities. Guests loved that they could get an email copy of their picture plus the print. I loved the scrapbook and notes. I will most definitely hire them again for my next event.

    This creative photographer goes ABOVE AND BEYOND to deliver dynamic photos!
    We needed photos for the cover and interior of a regional magazine, which is published by the nation's largest networking entity for building and construction professionals. We had an extremely tight time frame for booking the photographer, taking the photos and receiving photo edits. Will Hartman with Desert Rose Photography was able to expedite our request at a very reasonable rate, and had no problem managing our very detailed instructions on the execution of the photo shoot. (Also, none of the publisher's representatives attended the photo shoot - Will executed everything on site based on guidance he received via telephone and email.) He arrived early to the location to scope out the best places for outdoor photography, and also worked hand-in-hand with the photo subjects to stage everyone (~25 people) in a variety of settings and locations. Needless to say, Will went above and beyond to deliver photos that were engaging, energetic, and dynamic. It was a real pleasure to work with him. We plan to use him again if the need arises, and would recommend him to anyone else looking for a professional, creative, capable photographer.

    I choose to hire another Pro since the pro fit what I was looking for better. Will cotinued to keep sending me messages about how I should have selected him and why what I selected was inadequate to what he could provide even without knowing what the other pro was offering. I think this is very unprofessional and it really bothered me that he felt the need to continue to try to get my business even after I told him no twice. I hope his photography skills are better than his people skills,
    Will H. Aug 25, 2016

    After the initial quote, I contacted Jennifer twice. One to say, " Sorry to see you passed on my quote before I could speak with you. If there is anything I could do to earn your business let me know." She responded saying,"it was the price and the service provided. I had lots return with the same price, but with more included(i.e. more images, more accessibility, and more photographers)". To that I responded that we had multiple photographers and an online gallery with unlimited downloads. Just letting know we had everything she we as looking for. Never was it mentioned at all that we should have been picked, or that her selection was inadequate. All we did was our standard follow up. I'm sorry she felt it was too much, but never said we should have picked or even mentioned anything about who she hired.

    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!

    We hired Desert Rose for one photographer for a charity event originally. But, after talking to Will, who is lovely, we decided to hire them for two photographers and their awesome photobooth! They came to our event and set everything up with no fuss. People loved the photobooth, which printed out right then and there and also could text or email photos. It was a real hit! Will and his staff are super nice and very professional and we will never need Thumbtack to find an LA area photographer again as we will be using Desert Rose ;)

    I thought the photo booth was nice. However, I did request a complete enclosed one and what was set up was open. I don't know if this is considered an enclosed photo booth, but from the side the curtain could be closed but from the camera side the people were exposed to passing people. That was my main disappointment. I have seen other photo booths where it is completely enclosed and no one can see inside except those inside. That's what I thought I was paying for. Despite that my guest enjoyed it. The staff who operated the PB were great.
    Will H. May 29, 2016

    My apologies about the missing curtain panel. It is usually enclosed on all for sides. Occassionally panels/curtains need to be repaired or replaced. This was the case in this instance from an event the day before. I'm glad to hear your guests enjoyed it and everyone had a good time.

    Will was wonderful in every sense. I ran a big event with many components. I've worked with hundreds of vendors over the years...so I'm always grateful when new vendors are professional and have a great way about them. From the start to finish, Will was great. He responded quickly to all kinds of preliminary questions... understood the restrictions of a university... he was on time and professional... quiet and efficient. our event ran long and he was gracious about staying beyond the time contracted. He was so gracious we insisted he add his additional time to his invoice. Good photos to boot! Thank you Will!

    We set up a photobooth station with Desert Rose Photography for our daughter's 16th Birthday Party at a restaurant in Downtown Disney. I can not say enough good things about this company. They showed up early to set up, and everything was so professional, organized and fantastic. The kids could not get enough of taking photos with each other and it really helped the time go by. They had great props and each person went home with lots of photos of a fun night. You could tell they were having so much fun taking group photos with each other. Will did a wonderful job at creating a template that matched the party theme and the photo scrapbook that my daughter came home with really topped off the evening. His bid came in a little bit higher than some of the other companies BUT well worth paying the extra for a flawless presentation. If you're on the fence due to cost, it's FOR SURE worth it to pay the extra, I'm so happy that we did. Highly recommended and I would use them again in a heartbeat. Even the server at the restaurant was impressed at how cool the photo booth setup was. Also the two staff that worked the photo booth for our event were so pleasant and sweet. Thank you Desert Rose Photography!

    Will was incredible! We hired him for my small, last minute destination wedding on the beach. He arrived at our rental home early to take the 'getting ready' photos. Being from out of town, we had an idea of what spot on the beach we wanted to use but Will knew it wouldn't work and suggested an alternative location and offered to lead our party there. It was a perfect spot! He was friendly, knowledgeable, and patient (we had a special needs child with us), and had everyone's full trust from the get go. If I'm ever in the area for a special event again I would be delighted to have him there. Start to finish, my experience with Desert Rose Photography was truly wonderful.

    Will H. Dec 8, 2015

    I'm sorry that you felt that photos were small. With it being the 2x6 strips as you requested, the photos can only be so big. With the lighting, we have a different lighting set up that we use for outdoor events. We were originally scheduled for the set up to indoors. Had we known prior about the change in location, we could have brought the lighting intended for outdoors.

    Will H. Aug 10, 2015

    Thank you for the great review. Yes the memory book as the same photos that the guests get. I was unaware you wanted them larger. It hasnt been a request in the past. To do that we would have to shut down the PhotoBooth software to access the original photos and print them as larger individual prints. It would cut down on booth usage time. I will bring that up to the software developers and see if that is an option that can be added in a future update.

    I just hired Desert Rose this past Friday for my wedding and I am so happy I did! The photo booth looked amazing! The personalized photo strips were perfect and Will asked me before to proof them. He made minor changes that I asked and they looked amazing! There were two friendly staff members sitting there the entire 4-5 hours and they were great! I loved the blow up white LED wall and the booth was the life of the party! The props were all so cute and even my great grandma couldn't get enough of the booth! Then they made me a scrapbook right there of everyone's photos and gave me a USB at the end of all the photos. They were amazing and I will definitely hire them again!

    Flaked out, he was a no-show at his facility. Unreliable and came off as fabricating an excuse. Offered to give me a free session, but if he can't show up for a paid gig, what can I expect from a free one. The cost of his services pale in comparison to the resources it took me to get ready for the shot- and then a no-show? and not even a confirmation, or warning! Really?!

    Will was a pleasure to work with for our wedding. We hired him to set up a photo station, to use as a photobooth (but not automatic, with him taking the photos). Our primary goal was really good lighting so we could capture all our guests beautifully, and he did a great job! We chose no prints to save paper, just a usb of the files, and we uploaded them to an album for our friends to download later. They could also email themselves the most recent picture from his station. Will was easy to deal with over email and brought a positive energy to our day.

    Look no further for your photobooth needs. Will was very professional and our guests loved the booth setup, props and photo guestbook that were provided. Not giving 5-stars because photostrips couldn't be done without the Desert Rose promotional info on the front. My wife and I had been to 3 other weddings this year and received photostrips from each without the promo info. Not a big deal and if you can live with it, Will and Desert Rose is your way to go.

    Desert Rose Photography was a very easy to work with. They provided a photo booth from my daughter's Sweet 16 party. The price was a little higher than the other quote I received on thumbtack, but the company uses photographers that stay onsight. They were friendly. The props were fun and the photo paper was uniquely designed with our party colors and my daugher's name/party date. They also provided us with a thumb drive with all of the photos taken the night of the party.

I contacted a few companies and decided that Desert Rose looked the most professional and reliable. Will and his wife were great!!

    Will was simply AMAZING! I booked him on short notice and he worked closely with me to make sure everything would run smoothly. I hired Will to take pictures of my nephew's outdoor wedding at the beach. Before hiring Will, I had a number of questions/concerns and not only did he answer all of them but mentioned things that I had overlooked...NOW THAT'S A PRO! The day of the wedding he was there super early and came fully prepared for a day of shooting. Will worked hard to get all the essential shots I had needed and requested. In addition, he knew exactly what he was doing and needed very little direction. WHAT A RELIEF for me not to have to worry about what the photographer was doing! And I met Will a total of three times and he was never late...PUNCTUAL INDEED! And now the photos: Awesome! Crisp, hi-res pics of family and of those family moments were everyone's face looks good. Great use of depth-of-field and interesting angle shots. Will treated every photo with utmost importance and I am extremely thankful for his level of service and the number of hours he put in behind the scenes to make the photos look spectacular. 5-star service and very reasonable pricing! I would definitely hire him again.

Q&A

What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Pricing for PhotoBooth starts at $350/2 hrs, and $150 for each additional hour. This is all inclusive! Onsite attendant, custom template design, unlimited prints, props, social media station and more. There are no set up or travel fees.
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
We pride ourselves in customizing our services for each of our clients events. We try to get as much info about the event as possible. This way we can be ready for types of lighting for event photography, or customize the prints or start screen for our PhotoBooths.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
We are constantly striving keep with all the latest by upgrading PhotoBooth software and products, to attending photography seminars and workshops put on by Canon and more.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
For Photography, I started in High School shooting only on film with an SLR. This really taught me all the ins and outs of the camera and how to adapt to different lighting without a preview screen on the back of the camera. For PhotoBooth, we started before there was PhotoBooth software available. It took myself on a camera tethered to a computer, then another person on that computer moving photos manually in PhotoShop and printing. Now everything is touchscreen and automated.
What types of customers have you worked with?
We have worked everything from small private event and weddings, to corporate event for 10,000 plus guests.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
We recently did an Engagement Photo Shoot for a couple at The Stub Center, home of the Los Angeles Galaxy MLS team. We were there with the run of the field. Being down on the grass give a different perspective at the size of the place. It was great being able to do this custom shoot for this couple at a location not many people get to use. Earlier in the year we also shot an event at Staples Center where Kareem Abdul Jabar was honoring some local High School Students at center court before the game.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Do your homework! Ask if they are licensed and insured? Have they done event similar to yours? Do they have examples they can show you they shot themselves? Are they a Full Time Photographer/PhotoBooth, or do they only do it on the side?
