This was our first time working with a professional photographer. Danielle was amazing from the very beginning. She offered creative ideas and took the time to lay every detail out for us. Our engagement shoot turned out amazing. Her turn around time is great. She doesn't make you wait forever. We are looking forward to getting our wedding photos back soon!

Regarding Joanne's response, she acknowledged I am in need of an author photo. Joanne had asked if my book is print or online, she also mentioned photography will be high definition, which is also what my publisher had requested. I will share more after Joanne and I meet.

Elizabeth was so great to work with. Our real estate office needed photos as soon as possible for marketing materials. She was originally only going to take head-shots for me, but she so kindly accommodated the rest of the team at a moment's notice. She ensured my photos were retouched and responded quickly to any questions I had. Elizabeth is extremely professional and I would definitely use her photography services again in the future.

Jessica was enthusiastic, creative and fun to work with. Our 9yr old son tested the patience of us all and both Jessica and Bobby stepped right in to help our family create memorable shots. Jessica is committed to creating high quality photographs. We highly recommend her photography service.

Elena did my engagement photos and they came out beautiful, my husband and I never took professional photos before, so she guided us until we got comfortable. She definitely listened to what we wanted and it came out beautiful. Elena also did our wedding and we're waiting on the pictures but I know they'll be great! She was so wonderful! Thank you!

I've worked with Palo on several photography and videography projects, but the highlight was the video he made for my sister's wedding. He was on time, professional, and gracious for the entire day, which was so helpful amid the stress of a wedding. Palo didn't miss a thing, and the footage from the wedding is perfect. From tiny details on the dress and rings, to gorgeous aerial shots of the venue, and sweet moments throughout the evening, the final video is the perfect recap of an awesome day. The video is set to music perfectly, with snippets of vows which were an unexpected and amazing surprise. Everyone in my family LOVES the video, especially the bride and groom. If you haven't considered videography for your wedding, do it--and book Palo. You will not be disappointed!

Dia and Michael were amazing! Ours was a small intimate wedding and they were so accommodating and professional. I would highly recommend Meraz photography! They really made our day special, even when our teenage daughter started being "sassy" they handled it with poise and grace! I cannot say enough great things about Meraz photography! You won't regret hiring them for your event!

Tricia & her husband were so awesome! We had narrowed our thumbtack quotes down to two potential photographers & after speaking to Tricia we hired her without talking to our other option as her personality clicked with ours. On the day of our wedding they were on time & prepared. Their direction was great & the pictures truly show their experience. We spent some time before the wedding taking couple shots & those came out fantastic. Tricia had researched our site beforehand & was prepared so we utilized our time well. We could not have asked for a more professional photography team & feel grateful to have lucked out with finding them!

My photographer was out of town, and I needed a sub fast. Mario was right there, did a great job, and was a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend Mario to anyone in need of a professional photographer. Quality, professionalism, great service, and just a real nice guy are what you can expect... Anthony B.

Jamie was on time and very professional. We used him for an office photo shoot and he blended in seamlessly. We were able to work as we normally do and he was just a fly on the wall documenting our everyday work life. I would definitely recommend Voltage Digital for photography!

Sonny is our go-to guy for our band shots (Myron & The Kyniptionz). The color pops on every shot. He makes us feel at ease, even when he shoots the band while we are performing. We consider Sonny a "team member" and plug his photography services anytime a fan asks "who took your band photos?"

We hired Jimmy Wu of Jimmy Wu Photography for the Grand Opening of our social enterprise coffee businesses. We had many attractions and entertainment that day and over 300 attendees. Jimmy was able to capture candid moments of customers enjoying themselves, our artists and musicians performing, as well as product photos for future use. Jimmy was punctual, extremely professional and delivered the final product promptly. We will definitely hire him again for our future events!

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.
