I love this so much!

Since @KaceyMusgraves tweeted about Tom’s One Hour Photo in LA’s Koreatown, he’s built up over 12,000 followers on Instagram. And I’m sure there’s a line of gays and other Kacey fans out the door looking to have their portraits taken by Tom!

2. OMG, thanks to @KaceyMusgraves, Tom's 1 Hour Photo has over 22k followers on IG!

Are you going to have your portrait taken by Tom or do you have plans to?

I'm so happy! As Kacey noted, since the digital wave, Tom's biz has slowed down! 😭

5. Omg @chrissgardner went down to Tom's One Hour Photo and here's his story. Before @KaceyMusgraves tweeted about Tom, his wife was doing nails in order to help put food on the table as Tom's biz had slowed down.

Now Tom is booked and busy! 😭 https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/rambling-reporter/inside-toms-one-hour-photo-koreatown-24-hours-kacey-musgraves-made-him-a-viral-star-1235506 

6. Folks, isn’t Tom so adorable?!

He’s had his shop since 1991 and things had really slowed down. But now, thanks to @KaceyMusgraves and so many of you, he has a shot and maybe he and his wife can put away a few bucks or at least not have to worry as much!


7. Has anyone gone to Tom’s yet to have their portrait taken? Or are you planning on going? Please reply to let me know! 😭

8. Tom at work today! Doing what he’s done since 1991, except he’s doing a lot more of it, with more appreciation, and lot more attention.

9. Tom is crushin’ it! He’s booked and busy!

Have you had your portrait taken yet?

10. Here's the full story of how @KaceyMusgraves, the daughter of small business owners, used her fame/platform to lift up a one hour photo shop in LA's Koreatown that was struggling for years!



11. I need you all to be patient with my Tom's One Hour Photo content! I just love this story so much. Tom was just sitting there the other day, struggling after years of hard work, and one person with some power and a platform changed his life!

It's the best story! 😭

12. Live shot of Tom of Tom's 1 Hour Photo confronting his doubters in the digital community after getting a signal boost from @KaceyMusgraves

Visit Tom for all your photo needs!
