DawnMarie was great! We contracted with her for face-painting, balloon tying, and glitter tattoos for 2 hours. She showed up early to set up (but doesn't charge for set-up and clean-up time), she uses very high-quality face painting make-up, her balloon tying is more complex than what you typically see, and she is great with both kids and parents. I got comments from parents the entire time about her impressive artistic painting skills. The kids loved their face and arm paintings and glitter tattoos. Her intricate balloons were a total hit. She may be more expensive than some of the other entertainers out there, but this is really a situation where you get what you pay for. The quality was a cut above, she is insured, uses high-quality hypoallergenic and gluten-free make-up, and takes great pride in her work. Great experience!

Boodini performed during the cocktail and dinner hour of our wedding celebration. The guests really enjoyed the up close magic and balloon work. When our agreed upon two hours was over I asked if he would be willing to stay another hour. He was available and agreed. Thanks Boodini for an awesome evening!!

Where can I start? I could not have asked for a better night. Rick and Dance Pro DJ's made our whole wedding a blast and a night to remember. Starting from the "hand holding" Rick did with the music for our wedding cerony and reception all the way down to the photo booth. His way to keep the dance floor entertained all night was great. He catered to all the guests Old to young and all in between. Also the booth was so nice. They had an attendant there to assist all the guests and he was so helpful especially with the little kids. The photo strips were very clear and very professional and the props were tons of fun. Rick and Dance Pro DJ's get an A+ in making our wedding surely a night to remember. Thank you again. Jackie

Emil was an incredible photographer. We are so excited to see our photos, but we couldn’t wait to give him a positive review. We hired Emil for our wedding and he did not disappoint. He was running around grabbing photos before the ceremony and he didn’t stop until the dancing was well under way. During our cocktail hour we ran out to a few locations to grab bridal party shots. Emil gave great directions and had a ton of fun ideas to capture the energy of the day. He was really able to adapt to our personalities in deciding what photos to take, which we really appreciate. We definitely encourage everyone to work with Emil.

Long overdue review. Sorry Normajean !! I am the events coordinator for Downtown Portage Inc. We hired Normajean to help entertain guests for our Canal Days Festival. We experienced horrible weather which kept most people indoors. Normajean didn't let the it rain on our festival parade. She even went as far as standing in the rain and waiving in people to come in a participate under the big tent. I would highly recommend her for any event and look forward to working with her again in the future.

XOXO Photobox was the perfect addition to our September 17th wedding! We booked XOXO pretty last minute in terms of wedding standards (3 weeks before our event) and we were very happy with the decision and the results. Maria and Brooke were very easy to work with, quick to respond, organized, prepared, and professional. They showed up early to our event to set up and were friendly and responsive to our guests. They have a ton of photo booth props to pick from including wedding themed props. You can even choose black and white, color, or retro for your prints while you are in the photo booth. Literally the next day we received an email on how to access our online gallery. We and our guests loved the photo booth. :) We highly recommend XOXO! -Jessie and Dave

We were truly happy with the services that Keicy Photobooth Rental provided on our wedding day. We hired them for our wedding and all wedding guests could not stop raving about how great they were. They were so helpful and made our wedding memorable. They also included a photo album where our guests could leave us notes and a USB that had all the pictures from that night. We could not thank them enough and would recommend them to anyone looking to photobooth services. We loved their custom design for our wedding also! They were both professional and affordable. Karen was always responsive when we messaged her with questions. We can't to hire you again for another event. Thank you so much!!!

Jon provided the music for the cocktail hour of our wedding on Sunday, September 18, 2016. We must start out by saying that, because the entire wedding was one big whirlwind, we did not have the pleasure of being able to hear a majority of Jon’s performance. However, we did hear through word of mouth that the guests really enjoyed the music that Jon provided. We communicated exclusively through e-mail. He was very kind and patient with us as we tried to figure out what types of music we wanted to play. Jon was able to send us a list of songs that he was well-versed in and that accommodated the genres we ultimately decided on (latin, jazz, bossa nova, R&B). This made our lives easier as it helped us to focus and eventually narrow our choices down to a small selection of songs. We finally got a chance to meet face to face at the wedding venue. He was very sweet and very formal (and he speaks Spanish too!). We did have a bit of confusion regarding whether or not Jon would use his own personal keyboard or the piano provided by the wedding venue but thankfully everything worked out in the end. Jon was VERY reasonably priced; however, he does not provide a contract (but because Jon is such a professional, this was not an issue at all). We would absolutely recommend Jon. And like we had mentioned to him at the venue, hopefully we have another opportunity to hire him so that we can listen to and enjoy his musical talents in its entirety. Thanks again Jon!

Jerry performed at our son's wedding celebration. His music really added so much to the excitement and festive feel! The music was really beautiful and had a nice jazz sophistication. It was easy to hear but didn't overtake the event either. He was extremely personal and professional.

Really love this place and highly recommend Soo Studio !! I visited Chicago from MN because I had to add a photo on my resume. Pretty sure he is a great photographer not only for wedding, but also portrait photo. I had to wear shirt and jacket for my photo ID, but unfortunately I didn't have one. However, thankfully he lent me his shirts and jackets so I could take great photos. He is also very professional doing post-editing. Very professional, nice and friendly. I really thanks for great photos. want to give this place 10 stars !!

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 was a true professional! The props were amazing, payment easy, rate affordable, and my family LOVED the photobooth. We are so excited to have had GN Events at our wedding and end up with a file of photos detailing our friends and families having a blast. My brother missed the photobooth time slot, and Gene allowed him a last second photo! This is absolutely something will be talking about for many years to come. :)

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!

We hired Val for my daughters 1st birthday party. She's just wonderful and we love her work so much. In the past I regret hirring other lower-priced face painters who didn't know how to paint well and worst of all they do not know how to interact with the kids. For me, it's very important to keep in mind how a face painter relates to the children. She's friendly, funny, clever, professional to work with, fast and incredibly talented. We love our experience with her and everyone else at the party did too. She's amazing and we love her very much. ?

Ed was great. He was on time and the kids were just having a ball and laughing out loud. His rates are reasonable and comparable with other entertainers, but the added comedic spiel is what put it over the top!
