I needed a headshot for a new job ASAP and Don came to the rescue. He took an appointment last minute and got my pictures done in Less than 24 hours. He is fun and easy to work with and gave me great direction that resulted in terrific shots. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a great professional photographer!

We had such a wonderful photo shoot with Randy. He is so professional and easy to work with. We did the shoot with my parents, in-laws and kids (age 3 and 9mos) and he really made everyone feel comfortable from baby to grandma. I’ve worked with other photographers but Randy was so nice to work with. His warm nature and patience really helped everyone feel comfortable and at ease so that he could capture the natural smiles. The candid pictures as well as the posed ones were equally amazing. He was open to our ideas for poses and made them happen! He had so many great ideas as well. Right from the beginning, Randy was easy to get a hold of, answered all of my questions and provided the highest quality of service. The turnaround time for getting the pictures back to us was extremely fast and his post edits were very artistic. Randy met and exceeded my expectations for a family photo shoot. We now have so many wonderful pictures of our family. I would highly recommend him for family portraits and I definitely plan to hire him again.

Jack was amazing!! We hired him for our anniversary photos. As out of towners, we didn't know any locations so he provided us with suggestions, checked them out before our arrival and provided photos. He made us very comfortable during the session which allowed us to enjoy it. He ensures the output is a high quality product and that you are satisfied. Outstanding customer service and a professional photographer. We were highly satisfied with the outcome.

Meredith did an incredible job! She works very well with babies; very patient and gentle. She was very professional and took her time. She did not appear fixated on the time like most photographers can be. And, most importantly, the pictures turned out fantastic!! Such a great service for the price.... Will definitely be contacting her in the future. :)

Rhonda was absolutely wonderful to work with. Friendly, on-time, professional and very responsive. It was extremely important to me to have a photographer for my father's 70th birthday party as there were friends and family from near and far that may not all be together again — needed someone who could capture those moments of everyone together. We all enjoyed having her there and cannot wait to see the photos!

Andi was our wedding photographer and she did a great job! We received her photos quickly after the wedding was over, and the quality was that of a pro. We had a lot of family photographers at the wedding, but you can definitely tell a difference from their photos and Andi's. Thanks Andi! You rock!

I recently moved to Durham and we were in search of a professional photographer to take some pics for our family gathering. I approached this guy through one of my friends and I found this guy passionate about photography. I asked him to do a trial shoot and I like the way of perfection and commitment to his work. He would be our primary choice for any family gatherings and any household functions. I would definitely recommend this guy for any photography sessions you would like to have.

James was an awesome photographer to work with! He was easily accessible and easy to communicate with. We connected on Thumbtack, through email, Instagram (he keeps in touch as a follower!), and eventually cell phone. He is very willing to work with his clients; He has very reasonable prices for many hours of coverage, and will drive to a destination location shoot because he loves what he does. He was very punctual with communication and planning, and arrived early to our event. He is based in the Mesa, AZ area but drove to northeast Phoenix for us, and central Phoenix for a shoot after us. His eye for photos is very unique and candid. I love candid! He captured real emotion and motion while still photographing me and the other members in my party from flattering angles. My FAVORITE part was his unique perspective, which made the photos appear to the viewer as if they were in the room with us (which was wonderful for our elopement ceremony since in fact our families were not present). He was very fun to work with; he was very energetic and outgoing, easily fit right in with our group and our feeling comfortable with him, and funny. He came prepared with jokes to help get some real laughs in our photos. I feel our quirks came out very natural with him. I love his framing in some shots, where he blurred foliage from the foreground. I also love the tones of the edits, very vivid and sharp. He was also EXTREMELY quick at returning the gallery of edited photos to me. That is so rare and I appreciated it immensely! I would definitely recommend James as a photographer for events, like weddings, elopements, and couples photos. His Instagram (jameslee101) also features some beautiful portraits, and macro-shots.

Being based in Washington, DC, I needed a photographer to cover a series of events I was hosting in Arizona. Bruce came highly recommended and did not disappoint. Bruce was extremely professional while on-site and went above and beyond with both requested instructions and inputting his own creativity. My entire organization was pleased with the timeliness and final products. We hope to work with Bruce again in the future.

We have had Steve come to our office on four different occasions to take a variety of pictures that we could use in marketing materials, both print and online. The pictures were very professional and included a huge assortment. He also turned them around quickly so that we could meet a couple of our tight ad deadlines. You will not be disappointed.

My hobby is photography and I have a lot of professional photo equipment so I'm more critical of photographers than most agents. So I really appreciate high quality work and Craig is the best.

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.
