"Sharon and Laura are so much fun to work with! We met these wonderful ladies at the Anchorage Wedding Fair and fell in love with their photography style. I wanted our wedding photos to reflect love, romance, glamour and our photos do exactly that. We are thrilled with how all of our images turned out from the wedding details to our first look to the ceremony and reception fun shots. We had several meetings with Sharon and Laura prior to the wedding so we could get to know each other and go over what we wanted from our photos. They were always willing to help and always answered my calls or texts when I had questions or needed some input. For example; a lot of venues in Anchorage do not allow glitter, sprinkles, bird seed, or sparklers during the event so I needed some suggestions on what else we could use for an exit. They suggested streamers and we loved the idea, the pictures are fantastic! Sharon and Laura also created a timeline to help us get everyone where they needed to be on time. During our ceremony and reception they moved around so swiftly that we didn’t even notice they were there! They even set up a photo booth for all of our guests to create some laughable memories. We plan to work with Elegante Light Photography in the future and would recommend them to anyone else looking for a personalized experience. Our wedding day was perfect and we cannot wait to share our images with everyone."

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does it cost for a photographer for a wedding?

Finding the right wedding photographer can make a big difference for your ceremony. Nationally, the average wedding photographer’s price ranges from $800 to $1,000, but costs can be much higher in areas like Chicago, New York or Los Angeles where some couples spend $2,000 to $5,000 or more for the photographer they want. Factors that can affect your wedding photographer prices include the photographer’s reputation and experience. Heavy hitters can command top rates, especially during wedding-season weekends. Day of the week also affects your cost. You may get a $200 discount on wedding photographer prices if you get married on a Friday in November rather than a Saturday in June. Time onsite is also an important cost factor. Hiring a photographer to snap photos from the moment you wake up until after last call at the reception is going to cost more than five hours of pictures during the day. Multiple photographers, special lighting, and videography will also increase your costs. Ultimately you want to find someone who has a style you love and can provide the number of edited shots you want for a price you can handle. Learn more about hiring a wedding photographer.
