Larry is the best wedding photographer. We highly recommend him. He came to the venue 2 hours before the guests arrived. He coved all parts of our wedding. He even came back for a photoshoot after our wedding to ensure we get the best photographs. We are so glad we choose him.

Michael was awesome as our wedding day photographer. He made us all feel super comfortable and was conscious about making sure we did not feel like the picture taking was stealing time away from our wedding festivities. He also was great about where and when to get the best shots and was super accommodating to any ideas we had. he was also quick with the turnaround and the end result pictures were amazing! Would highly recommend for a shoot.

Sheila is not only a talented photographer but also very professional. She is very communicative and was a pleasure to work with. She was a joy to have around during the wedding day and was honestly a "fly on the wall" unlike other wedding photographers who are too "in it". The pictures she takes are beautiful and extremely well priced. I would not hesitate to work with her again. I actually look forward to it.

Stavan and his team were the photographers and videographer at our wedding a couple of weeks ago in Gilroy CA. They were reliable, energetic, personable, very creative and professional in every way. The showed us on time. Every guest was impressed how approachable they were. We can't wait to see the photos! My wife is counting down the dates to get the pictures and I feel sure they are going to amaze us! I will return with more reviews after we get the pictures and videos.

I hired Jeff to photographed our 50th wedding anniversary celebration of 63 people. He discussed the event several times in advance. He arrived 30 minutes before the posed fmaily pictures were takes to set identify scenic background at winery in Napa and set up proper lighting for the scene which was heavely backlit. He took posed pictures of 11 family members in various groupings, informal pictures at reception and during dinner and at Renewal of Weddding Vow ceremony. Picture were very good- sharp and good lighting. He composed 3 different albums for members of the family and was very quick in re-arranging the order of the pictures and making requested edit. . He was very professional to work with and guests enjoyed having him take their picture. He was very prompt ( within 3 days) in posting on his website a gallery of about 100 pictures of the event, which guests can review , download and order prints. He completed composing 3 different albums in 10 days. I was very pleased and recommend Jeff for event photography.

Patrick was our wedding photographer, and he went above and beyond for us in too many ways to list. He was professional, hardworking and thoughtful in every way, disappearing into the background yet catching so many amazing moments throughout the evening. Patrick is not your traditional wedding photographer, but that was not what we were looking for. His work speaks for itself, and we recommend him highly.

I got my sister an engagement style shoot in sanfrancisco as a part of her wedding present. I wasn't sure if she would like it (she isnt really that into pictures) but I am so happy that I did. They said that they had an absolutely amazing experience and that Andrea is literally the nicest most awesome photographer in the world. She brought champagne made the experience special, hung out with them, made them feel relaxed, took 2 hours of amazing photos at multiple locations, and then even gave them a lovely restaurant recommendation and then checked in after to see if they liked with. She was easy to work with, super helpful in arranging and planning everything, and a very fair price. Thanks Andrea!

Eric and his assistant, Claire were so professionally unobtrusive during my daughter’s wedding event, I did not even notice they were there. The proof of their presence is in the captivating candid photos and the beautiful artistic photos that recorded the entire day. Everyone looks amazing. Eric perfectly captured the unique personalities of the bride and groom throughput the day. I was not able to meet Eric until the day of the wedding because I live overseas. I chose based upon his portfolio and online communication. What could have been a series of pretty pictures of a cookie cutter country club wedding with another photographer is instead a perfect blend of photojournalism, fine art, and traditional styles, Eric’s and Claire’s work show the very present, palpable feelings between the bride and groom. Perfect.

If you’ve been waiting for “that one review” to really prove that Oaktown Boudoir is the way to go- don’t wait anymore! Cheshire Isaacs is a true exemplar of all that a professional boudoir photographer should strive to be. He is open and receptive to his client’s ideas without losing focus. He is honest and genuine without ever being insensitive. He is incredibly professional without ever being stuffy. The Bay Area is filled with Boudoir Photographers, so I guess the best way to write a proper review is to outline what exactly my own (popular) concerns were and how Cheshire proved triumphant! 1. Will I be comfortable? As a young woman, I was a little concerned about being erotically photographed by a man. Having been through a shoot, it’s obvious that Cheshire cares- from his personally designed music playlists (made in the interest of making the experience as comfortable as possible) to his handmade cheese and cracker platters. He continually went above and beyond for my session and I admire his passion, enthusiasm, and dedication. It shows in both his beautiful work and the long-lasting relationships he has with his clients. He spoke about his wife and daughter frequently, something that showed me his appreciation and respect for women, immediately putting me at ease. 2. Can his studio fit more than one “style” of photoshoot? Cheshire’s studio is open, bright, and filled with possibilities. He can transform the space to fit, I kid you not, any personality and style. In a matter of minutes (just enough time to refill a wine glass), his studio can go from a brightly lit angelic state to a dark, sexy, and sultry one. He mentioned having custom-designed the space alongside his wife, something that told me just how invested he was in the style and overall vibe of his studio. For my images in particular, I knew that I wanted little editing and wanted the images to be as “real” as possible. Somehow Cheshire still made it look like I was a model and knew exactly how to manipulate each pose to accentuate all the good and cleverly soften all the bad (without photoshop). 3. Will I get my money’s worth? Whichever amount of time you decide to book Cheshire for, know that not a minute will be wasted. He knows how to get down to business and not waste time while simultaneously not rushing through any poses. This guy was sweating as he climbed up and down ladders, moved heavy couches and bed sets, and adjusted lights. His hard work pays off in the beauty of his finished products! His experience in the field is obvious in the way he can quickly evaluate a pose and make small nuanced changes in position to get a desired look. I am but a poor college student and Cheshire’s prices were definitely better than most photographers around. He could easily charge three times as much for his services and would still be the deal of a lifetime. 4. Will my images be published? Cheshire was very thorough and attentive when listening to what I was comfortable with. He assured me that no images would be posted without explicit approval. In the end, his work was so beautiful that I would have been fine with it being printed on billboards and bus ads- really! 5. What about makeup? Cheshire notified me in one of our first correspondences that he had a partnership with a makeup artist, Thuy, who would be on-site for a small fee. Let me tell you- Thuy is more than simply a makeup artist- she really does it all. Not only did she do an absolutely spectacular job with my makeup, but she was the ultimate hype-woman!!! She stayed for nearly the entire session for touch-ups, glamour, and enthusiastic words of support. The experience wouldn’t have been the same without her. Every person that sees the finished images says, “Wow, I wish I’d done something like this.” Don’t be that person! Don’t wait another day, don’t look for another review, don’t google “Boudoir Photographer” again. Oaktown Boudoir is that good. Doing a boudoir shoot is obviously a large lump sum of money to dedicate to something that isn’t necessarily “necessary,” but my experience with Oaktown Boudoir is something that I will truly treasure for the rest of my life and always reflect on with a smile and a deep, deep appreciation for Cheshire Isaacs! He knows how to make a client feel like a friend, and that’s something you don’t come by often.

We used LuvlyProduction for our wedding photobooth in May 2018. I was impressed by their responsiveness and their desire to make sure we had a good experience working with them. Our guests really enjoyed the props and enclosed photobooth!!! I had no complaints from our coordinator about setup or teardown. Would not hesitate to book again :)

I had to do a short congratulatory video for a friend who is collecting a major award at the Cannes Festival. I come from the ad industry so I'm used to working with filmmakers, photographers etc; I found Ilja to be totally professional, easy to work with (even when I switched the brief) and affordable. He also has a good eye for lighting and performance. Would I use him again? Absolutely.

We hired Usman for both our wedding photographer and videographer in March 2017. From the very first meeting he not only saw our vision but he walked us through the entire process. Even before our wedding day I knew we made the right choice. On our wedding day Usman and his wife blended in perfectly and captured exactly what we wanted. I highly recommend him, you will not be disappointed.

Sumit was amazing! About two weeks before my husband's 40th birthday party, I decided I'd like to hire a photographer to take photos at the dinner. I started searching the web, found thumbtack, and put in a request for a photographer. My husband always looks uncomfortable when a photographer is around, but I thought I'd give it a go so we could try to get some nice photos of the special day. I have to tell you that hiring Sumit was the best decision I made regarding the party planning. He captured very special moments including my husband walking into the party and meeting friends he had not seen in years. We also had a few impromptu speeches and Sumit captured the moment for us with each of those speeches. Sumit was so professional and helpful! He was very easy to work with and completely blended in during the party. His photos were excellent and truly captured the moment and emotions of the evening. Both his candid and group shots were phenomenal! I sent the guests a link to view the photos and several people commented on what a great job the photographer did. Seriously- I've previously sent professional family shots from other photographers to my friends and family, and this is the first time people emailed me to say how good a job the photographer did in capturing a moment. I would definitely recommend Sumit, and from now on he will be my go-to guy for professional photos in the future!

We hired Tri to do some commercial photography for our hotel project. Tri was very professional and willing to cater around our hectic schedule. From start to finish, Tri was extremely responsive in communication. We would definitely recommend Tri to any other business owners seeking professional commercial photography for their business!

Before working with Nico, he was already one of my favorite photographers. His style always caught my eye, but working with him cemented his place in my heart! He is professional and hilarious. We had so much fun searching for impromptu spots and making jokes while shooting. The way Nico posed me during shoots was effortless and easy. He has very clear ideas, and explains how he wants the shot to look so the model has a clear idea of the vision. He was open to my ideas and I felt like we were creative equals. I cannot wait to shoot with him again. A wonderful experience!

Rich Jarvis was the photographer for our wedding, and I couldn't be happier with his thorough documentation of our big day. Rich has a great eye and gives good direction. He listened to what we wanted too. He got pictures of all major objects and our guests, plus awe inspiring shots of us. He's equally skilled at candid shots, picking touching and funny moments. He also has a very calming presence which is so important on such a nerve racking day. I highly recommend hiring him.

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.
