Can you recommend the best CMS to build the following?
I have a potential client that requires a website to be built that will need a customer area. The website requires a booking system that can show availability. This must also show the customer's appointments in their account along with a timeline of pictures of the customer, taken by the client. A start to finish timeline would be best.
Any input would be greatly appreciated.
I doubt that you can find better options in WordPress or any open source CMS. Must try to seek if you can find affordable options at Wix, Exai, Squarespace who are paid CMS. I think these paid CMS can comply with your needs and give you wanted features.

WordPress is by far the best CMS with a lot of plugins and themes catering to your requirement.
Well as I can see your recommendation is not too large, you should go for WordPress. It is quite easy to manage just because of his modification of digital content.
I am not a fan of CMSs at all. I prefer some good and professional services instead. For example, the one from https://weblium.com You can get a really cool website for you fast and you will be able to edit it yourself then. I think it is a great solution
I suggest you to try Wordpress. There are thousands of themes available for WordPress. You can change the design of your website quickly. You can also extend the functionality of your WordPress site without knowing how to program. Wordpress offers about 10,000 plugins that help you add all kinds of functionality to your sites, like social media sharing, SEO, photo slideshows, and much more.

I would suggest using WordPress.org and from there you can add a booking system plugin, from which your customers can see availability of appointments.
If you speak about CMS then nothing can beat wordpress , wordpress is highly customization , you even search for wordpress themes I am very sure you might get exactly what you are looking for. One such place to search for wordpress themes is themeforest.
Other such useful CMS you are Joomla and Drupal even in Joomla you might find the required features for your portal.
There is no CMS in the market which can meet your these features. All you have to do is hire a programmer to change an existing system. In my opinion WordPress will be best for you. Because it has lots of plugin already in the directory like you want to create timeline of customers, you can do this similarly with this plugin.
If you are a layman on the subject, I suggest giving a check on wordpress. The system you want to create is simple and wordpress has a way of manipulating the database in an easy way.
The best and secure way is develop without a CMS platform. You can use PHP/.NET for this and it will take only 3-4 weeks.
You can consider wordpress/drupal but I'm not recommending that for your requirements.
