I was very pleased with our experience. They were very professional from start to finish. Our photographer was excellent. She was calming and motivating – characteristics necessary for photographing teens! They had lots of different background options. It was hard to choose. Our pictures turned out PHENOMENAL!!

We scheduled our Homeschool Groups class yearbook pictures with Tumbleston and could not have been more satisfied. It was about 80+ students. They not only met all of our needs for class yearbook pictures but exceeded our expectations in customer service. The whole location staff was amazing to work with. The photographer was very patient and brought out all the smiles. Their studio had so many options for photo backgrounds, it really is a one-stop photography studio. Another major highlight was ordering online and being able to choose different backgrounds for the pictures. The online ordering process itself was very user-friendly with options I have never seen with photography studios before.

Kim is the best!!!!!!! Her level of professionalism and passion for her work is above and beyond. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
