About this pro

How does your service stand out?

I have earned certification from the Professional Photographers of America. Fewer than 5 percent of all photographers earn this certification, which consists of a comprehensive written test and a review of images by a board of PPA. This means I can adjust to to any lighting circumstances to get great images of your special day.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I love making clients happy by making their wedding day less stressful. They can relax and enjoy their wedding without worrying if they will get the artistic images that they have dreamed about.

    The photo booth was a big hit. He was professional and answered all my questions prior to the event. He was on time, courtesy and added the special features we were looking for.

    He was so patient with us! Stayed there longer even though it was hot outside where he set up. The set up looks super nice and he stayed there with the printer to make sure nothing went wrong. He was so great! The experience was awesome. Definitely will be recommending him to friends and family! Thank you so much!!

    We LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVED the photo booth! We were so crazy busy with wedding planning and events that my cousin took the reigns and arranged with Tom THE DAY BEFORE the wedding. We didn't even realize she had it all worked out until we got to the reception. EVERYONE LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVED IT! Even the grandparents got in there and had great time!

    He was a hit at the party, showed up in time and delivers what he promises on the contract. I liked that I had to deal with only Tom for booking so you are sure if he's available or not. I would definitely book him again and recommend others to use him.

    Tom came to our home, set up a green screen, took about 25 pictures of us and then let us pick out the 5 pictures we liked best. Then he put each of those pictures on 5 different backgrounds and uploaded them to Dropbox so we could access them. It was a very smooth and easy processes. I highly recommend him for your professional head shots.

    I hired Tom because i liked the idea that at the end he give you an usb with all the pictures since it was a bridal shower for my friend i was more than happy with the idea... he was there 30m before the party he was really professional. at the end all the guest were really happy and they said that the pictures look really good and they did. Contrate a Tom por que me encanto la idea que te da un usb con todas las fotos al final de la fiesta lo cual fue perfecto ya que era la fiesta de compromiso de mi amiga el fue super amable con todos ya que la mitad de los invitados eran hispanos y no hablan ingles el fue muy profesional en todo momento. Fue puntual y muy atento se los recomiendo las fotos salieron fantásticas y sobre todo ya que las mujeres somos un poco especiales en cuanto a fotos pero la verdad que no me puedo quejar están perfectas de muy buena calidad..

    The photo booth was up and ready for the fun to start. This booth was the Hit of the wedding. There was always a line to have photos taken. I personally only took 1 photo, but it was ready quickly. Money well spent. 4 days later I'm still getting messages from guest about how fun and quick the Photo Booth was. Thank you Tom for a night everyone will remember. Cindi G

    Vendor was on time and the booth was good. I liked the pictures. The crankiness of the vendor was unprofessional and detracted from the overall transaction. We thought we had more time then we did and he could have communicated more tactfully. I personally didn't get any pics with myself or my husband and we were the hosts. I offered to pay for extra time and he grumpily said no. If you're not into grumpy people you may want to select someone else.
    Tom M. Dec 21, 2014

    This is a very unfair review by a renter who tried to get an extra hour of service from me without paying. The contract called for me to have the photo booth in operation from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. I let people begin using the photo booth at about 6:20. At 9:25 the hosts announced to their guests that the photo booth booth would be open until 10:30, without checking with me to see if I could stay any later. A long line of people lined up at that time and I thought I would keep it open to let these guest get pictures. At 9:50, the line was only getting longer so I told guests it was time for me to shut down. At that time I had given the renters 25 extra minutes of service at no charge. A few minutes after I started packing up a woman come over and told me I was wrong, that I had to stay open until 10:30. I told her no, the contract was for me to have the booth open from 6:30 to 9:30. Shelia then came over and told me that I was under contract until 10:30. I told her the contract was for three hours until 9:30 and showed her the signed contract. Once she saw the copy of the contract she said, I guess you're right, it is 3 hours. I wasn't grumpy, but irritated that they accused me of closing early, and she never apologized for having it wrong. She never thanked me for giving her an extra 25 minutes of service at no charge. It wasn't until I provided a copy of the contract to show I wasn't shutting down early that she offered to pay me extra for staying longer. After having my integrity questioned, I had no desire to stay longer. Vendors should not be blamed for a client not using the service during contracted hours.

    Tom was very nice and always responded to my emails promptly. All the guests at my wedding loved the photobooth. It was an actual photobooth-not just something in the open. Great props, setup was on time, and pictures came out great! We were even able to put our names and wedding date on the photos. Great wedding favor. Touch screen was easy to use so even our older guests could have fun too!

He captured a beautiful mix of traditional shots, detailed photos, and candids. All the photos are high quality and he is very reasonably priced.

He was very flexible, extremely professional and best of all, a great person that was easy to talk to. He offered a photo booth for our reception and it was a hit! one of the highlights for sure. Alliance Studios provides exceptional customer service and the highest quality photos and photography products. Wouldn't hesitate to use Alliance Studios in the future.

  • Kasey B. Aug 19, 2013
    Tom was absolutely amazing with responding to all our questions. The fact that he owns a photo studio really helped put our trust in his hands with confidence. We had a chance to meet him before the wedding, and was very welcoming, showed us samples, looked up the venue, and did his homework to make it feel that it was important to him to get the right atmosphere and the pictures we wanted. Extremely impressed with the prices he gave us. I also can NOT express how amazing the photo booth was. This was no small little booth, it was a corner blocked off with a very good assistant, and the pictures were super high quality and we could NOT get people away from the booth. The fact that you get a copy of all the booth photos later is also an amazing deal. I would have not gone any other way, especially for the value Tom offered us.

    Tom was very helpful with my wedding. I changed the date twice yet he was understanding and flexible to my indecisiveness. The photo booth was the highlight of my wedding. My guests are still talking about it. Tom was also thoughtful enough to provide me with a CD of the photos my guests took in the booth. I am recommending his business to anyone planning a wedding!

    I would highly recommended Tom for anyone needing a photographer especially for a wedding! He gave us exceptional service for an unbelievable price. He shot my bridals and 8 hours for the wedding and made us feel very comfortable all along the way. Our wedding was on June 28th and he has already finished editing close to 800 pictures (which is amazing for bridal season). He also brought along an assistant which allowed us to get many angles we wanted.

    The wedding was crazy so my wife and I didn't get to use it til the end of the night. At that point Tom was beginning to shut things down. He fired the computer back up without complaint and was happy to do so for us. And we managed to get a few pictures in. Our guests absolutely LOVED the "photobooth." Tom set up an open booth for us and everyone liked that so much more than enclosed photobooths. Tom was on time, in fact he was at least 45 minutes early and stayed the entire time agreed upon. The joy and happiness was visible on our guests and made Tom's services completely worth it. I would recommend to any couples planning to get married to use his services.

    Once again, another outstanding photo shoot with Tom Marvin and Alliance Photo Studio. My son, Ben will be a senior at Birdville High School. We came in on August 3 for his photo session. Tom was very creative and was easy to work with. His professionalism shines through his attention to detail and the quality of his photography. The photo proofs were online, ready for review, about three days later. I would highly recommend this studio for your photo needs. Juliana Barnett

Q&A

What types of customers have you worked with?
The most common jobs we do for clients are wedding photography, engagement and bridal portrait sessions and high school senior sessions. Many of our wedding packages include engagement and/or bridal portrait sessions.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Hire someone who does photography as their full time job, so your important day is just as important to them as it is to you. I recently had a groom call me on his wedding day looking for a photographer because the one he was going to have take their photos called on the day of the wedding to back out because some else came up. You also need to be sure that the photographer has back up equipment that is just as good as their main equipment.
