Dawn Marie did an excellent job for my son's third birthday. She is a great and creative artist. She satisfied the children and adults alike with her face paintings. She is very professional and accommodating. She made a great effort to make our event on time on the heels of another event she had scheduled the same day. She was on time and her rates are incredibly reasonable. Thanks Dawn Marie!

I hired Carl for our reception on rather short notice. He was very organized and professional. His music selection outside of what we gave him matched the event well. Overall he contributed to a fun reception. Thanks Carl!

Agnes arrived early. Emil happened to be along so we had TWO photographers! They were so professional and captured everything we asked and much more. They filled the entire two hours of the contract with a constant stream of photos. We were so satisfied we cut the cake early and let Agnes go on to her next event -- we couldn't imagine anything else to be captured. We'd very highly recommend Emil and Agnes!!

Everything about their service was fantastic. First, the were able to set up quietly and efficiently in the corner of our venue without distractions. Their props were great! They had a lot of variety and everyone really enjoyed them. They also did a great job customizing the photostrip before our event. Unlike with some photo booths, there was no glitch in printing. The person operating the photo booth was extremely friendly. And finally, at the end of the night when they were packing up, they accommodated the groom and the groomsmen who hadn't been able to get a picture together even though it was when they had already started packing up. Overall, excellent quality and service. I would highly recommend them.

Gary the owner was promt and friendly. He quoted me a very good price for my daughters birthday. The bounce house we reserved was his pink and blue castle and was huge, clean, and fun. I'd highly recommend this company for your next event.

We had a great experience using DJ Eddy Gee for the photo booth at our wedding celebration! He was prompt, had a great setup, and ensured that all of our guests got their photos and had a great time. We were given a hard copy of each of the photo strips as well as a flash drive which was awesome for sharing the pictures with everyone afterwards. I would highly recommend him to anybody having an event; he's one vendor you won't have to worry about things not going smoothly!

I thoroughly enjoyed this experience! The attendants were polite, courteous, very friendly and attentive to myself and guests. I booked this company not knowing what to expect, but I received what I felt like to be VIP treatment. My attendant called me 48 hours prior to my event to touch bases with me and familiarize me with them as well as the process on how things go and how it'll be set up. My guests were so ecstatic about having a photo booth at my event. The price was reasonable and the fact that I got the pictures instantly AND with great quality blew my mind! I will definitely be recommending this company to family, friends and colleagues as well as booking them myself for any future events! Thanks Mr. Photobot!

Ryan Gorey Media was perfect for my rehearsal dinner! He was there before me already setting up and was very professional. He played a great variety of songs as people were arriving and eating dinner and then switched to dance music after dinner, which was exactly what I wanted. I would definitely recommend him to anyone that needs a DJ and plan to work with him again in the future.

Working with Soo was a great experience, he managed everything perfect without any missings and it was really easy for me to communicate with him. Mist of all, he was very punctual and professional. I was able to hold my event very successfully due to working with Soo. Thanks to him. I will definitely work with him again later in the future if I hold other events!

We used Portrait of Light photo booth for our wedding on October 21st. They were punctual and very professional! We heard tons of positive and great reviews from our wedding guests. And at the end of the night we received a photo book of all the picture strips taken during the night. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a photo booth for any type of event.

Gene has done a great job with his photo booth. I have used Gene in the past for quite a few DJ gigs, and have had other Photo booth companies at the same event. Now with having 2 services from the same company, we are able to save some money. Thanks Gene for all your hard work.

I discovered DJ DJones at an event for PAWS Chicago, so when I needed entertainment for my wedding, I wanted to go to the "good people" first. Durell was in constant contact and kept us in track while planning our evening. He reached out many times as the date approached to ensure we had everything we wanted. My husband and I have tightschedules (we calendar request each other if we need something)... So to communicate w Durell, we also scheduled conference calls. He was incredibly prompt, which was valuable to us since we have very few spare minutes each day. The night of, Durell was fantastic. My guests had so many compliments on his music, and that what was most important to me. He's talented and professional. If you are looking for a DJ-- stop debating and just hire DJ D Jones. You can't go wrong!

This specific project was quite intense. It involves all day shooting and running around from a larger event to an exterior interview room. Sam, from White Fox Cinema, did a tremendous job. He was punctual to start the day and came extremely prepared. We've done a series of these videos and I could tell he watched our previous work in order to understand the type of shots we were looking for. Finding a freelance videographer to fill in on an already established production is not easy, like hiring a new employee, but we feel very lucky to have come across White Fox Cinema. We recommend White Fox for any job and we'll be doing business with him in the future.

We could not have been more pleased with the entertainment and service that we received for our event from Justin and Chris of SoPrime Entertainment! We had a surprise 60th birthday party for my husband at a venue where SoPrime supplied great music both inside and outside. I was surprised what a perfect addition it was to even a smaller event of about 40-50 people to have a DJ present. You can select your own playlist or do like I did and just have them create the appropriate music if you don't have the time or inclination to make your own song choices. I will definitely be calling them for my next event whether it's small like this or for my daughter's wedding! Thanks SoPrime!

I used MLS photo booths for my wedding this past weekend and it was great! Myself and everyone at the wedding loved it! It was so fun to use the props and take fun pictures with your loved ones! Mike is super awesome and I would recommend using MLS photo booths for any event! You wont be disappointed! Mike is the best and he will do everything he can to make your event great! My new husband and I were able to look at all the fun pictures at the end of the day and were talking about how happy we were to have the photbooth there! :)
