I've used Thumbtack before and had a good experience which is why I came back when my husband and I wanted to do a couples, themed photo shoot in our new home. Our Legacy seriously hit it out of the park. They provided excellent service by giving me a free consultation, and great communication leading up the shoot. It was very clear that Marteen and his crew were down to earth, enjoyed their work, took great photos. I browsed their portfolio before hiring and it only took one glance to know I was going with them. Marteen takes the time to make sure he really understands what you are looking for in your photos. He allows you to give him real time feedback during the shoot, and he isn't afraid to show his excitement when he knows he just captured something really special for you. I would 100% recommend Our Legacy. His crew of second photographers and assistants are also phenomenal and really bring a level of professionalism to the atmosphere while still maintaining a very natural and relational experience. Thanks guys!

I had a friend that is a TV commercial scout contact me needing photos of Rabobank arena, I messaged a few local photographers that I knew personally but had no luck landing anyone for a 30 minute job. I remembered seeing Chad taking photos of bands at a local venue I attended often and sent him a message on Facebook to see if he was available on short notice. Chad responded very quickly and got the shots the scout needed. I highly recommend MKC for any photos you need taken.

Ande was my makeup artist and photographer for my wedding. She did an amazing job. My makeup was tailored to what I was comfortable with and the photographs are my most treasured possessions. She managed to capture all those special moments, especially the ones I couldn't be there for. Overall she managed the day well and even provided some much-needed advice on timing. Ande has a knack of making people feel comfortable while capturing the perfect shot. If you ever need a talented photographer, she is most definately your girl.

Hired them for my sister's reception in Bakersfield (ceremony was in Texas). They were amazing from the first time I talked on the phone with them to well after the delivery of our group pictures (edits are still being worked on the rest of the pictures, we just got a sneak peek). They arrived on time, prepared, and never skipped a beat! They took amazing pictures of all the action and candid moments! Their artistic touch to the finished photographs also make the company a one of a kind! Love, love, love their style! Extremely pleased with their services and if I could have given them more stars, I most definitely would have!!! Highly recommend them to anyone!

Hi, my name is Richard Winward with Coldwell Banker Preferred Realtors. I hired Dale Walton at Walton Event Photography to take some high quality photos of a home I listed in the Bakersfield MLS. The whole experience exceeded all of my expectations. It was refreshing to see someone that loves what he is doing that much. He will be getting many more jobs from me in the future. I will also be telling all my fellow Realtors about him! The best compliment I could say is, "Dale has earned a loyal client."

Lindsay and Jonah were the photographers at my wedding and My husband and I both couldn't be happier or more honored by the work that they did and the way that they did it. Lindsay and Jonah seek to capture the uniqueness of us and not just do their own thing. They asked what we wanted but also had brilliant ideas of how to be capture our event. When my husband and I were so exhausted on our big day they encouraged us, made us laugh and feel completely comfortable to be ourselves and be fully celebrated. I truly couldn't say enough positive things about these two. They were a blast to work with and made everything so easy for us. It was an honor to have them be apart of and capture this incredible time in our lives.

I highly recommend Art of Light! I needed a photographer at the last minute to take family photos during our beach vacation. Merriel was great to work with. She responded to my call quickly, had the best price, and communicated with me effectively so that she understood my vision for the photos. She came to a location convenient to us and even got our toddler to cooperate. The photos are beautiful and she provided the proofs and final images to us much sooner than expected. The entire process was fast and painless. Thanks again, Merriel!

Now that same model is one of the biggest models in Miami. Doing TV Shows (love and hip hop), music videos and much more. Thank you Lueyvision for such a great experience.

    Amazing customer service; they were flexible, approachable, detailed, and friendly. Most of all I was satisfied with the amount patience and great attitude the photographer expressed during our family photo shoot, despite my 1 year old baby was difficult to photograph. Thank you.

    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.
