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!

Very professional and friendly. I had to reschedule my appointment 3 times due to things coming up on my end and thought they might get annoyed but they didn't. They treated me like family, told me not to worry, understood that things pop up all the time with kids and were more than happy to reschedule each time. Our photographer was on location ahead of time ready for my boys and I. She was very experienced and had all the poses planned out yet still came up with some awesome shots on the fly. She was really good with my kids. Especially my 7 yr old who is very energetic and talkative. I could tell she enjoyed working with kids and was very patient. It was an overall excellent experience and have already recommended to friends and family. Thank you!

Kristi and Paul are the most fun and artistic photographers around, whether it's covering a wedding, engagement session, senior, or family portrait, they will always deliver above and beyond what they charge. They are super easy going and accommodating and always take us to the perfect location with the best and most flattering lighting. I highly recommend hiring them if quality and professionalism matter to you.

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.

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!

I had the most wonderful professional experience with Luke. He is such a talented and knowledgeable photographer. We did a photo shoot with a model, it was her first photoshoot ever. 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.

    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.
