Hi Francine, Thank you to both you and your team for a great job! Everyone loved the greenscreen and the candid pics are so much fun. Marty and I were thrilled that you were able to make our event wth Howard!! We hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday season and best wishes for the new year.
Dear Francine I want to thank you for the wonderful 80th birthday party event you helped us plan. I was overwhelmed by the magnitude of the undertaking and your calm demeanor, connections to excellent entertainment and organizational skills were immeasurable. Although I was entirely against the photo-booth idea, thinking it was for bar/bat mitzvahs and not older crowds, you assured me it would be a hit – and you were absolutely right! It was a highlight and the album you created was sensational. A coffee table addition. Thanks again and I look forward to the next event we plan together!
Many thanks for a great job on our ‘Evening in OZ Gala.’ We’ve had several positive comments about the great work you and your team provided on Saturday night! Many thanks again for your great work!
I want to take this time to thank you for the lovely pictures you produced for our staff. We had great positive feedback. We look forward to working with you again on our events.
The photos are terrific! Fabulous actually.
I have worked with Distinctive Foto Imaging for over 3 years, and have had only great experience with working with Francine and her team.
