Guestbook for Toby Crabtree
Duff Wilmoth - San Juan Capistrano(non-registered)
I had the good fortune to attend a Saddleback Church Business ministries Jan 2014 where Mr. Crabtree was kind enough to offer his premier services to those on hand. The work product was sterling. Toby had a very competent grasp of composition and his subject matter with an informed perspective. I was quite pleased that Spirit of the Lens was there to enhance and augment my public image. I would give Mr. Crabtree and his company, Spirit of The Lens my resounding endorsement for professionalism and high quality artistic rendering. Thank you Tony for a job well done. Please do keep up the good work!
Toby Crabtree
Verne, I just saw the pictures of the President’s Ball - best in the 5 years we have attended.
Unfortunately when we got to the Ball, there was a long line and we opted to have picture taken later, but due to the fact we were so busy having fun with a wonderful group of friends, we didn't get back to have our picture taken.
It won't happen next year and I assume Ted Miller will be back! Great job!
Paul
Toby Crabtree
Ted, the pictures are great, you did an excellent job. Hope you will be there again next year.

The pictures and the slideshow are first rate. You really did a great job and you should be proud of the results. Everything about your presentation was first class.
Well done!

Amazing photographs!!! You guys did an awesome job! Can't wait to get my pictures. Is there a way to download any of the images?
