Will Hartman was amazing! Will and his wife, Michelle, designed my wedding photo booth template and it was beautiful. Will arrived early, set up everything and was wonderful during his entire time at my wedding. I couldn't have hired a better professional. The photo booth I had was the LED inflatable backdrop and it turned out great in pictures. The props were also fantastic. I feel like they really go above and beyond to do the best job and I am so grateful they did my wedding. Thanks so much for the wonderful job and for the scrapbook. It really was a lot of fun for everyone there and the moments you captured were priceless. I highly recommend hiring Desert Rose Photography for your wedding or other special event. They were perfect at my wedding!

We hired Joe as our photographer for our wedding. Joe has been awesome to work with. Despite all of our last minute changes- I mean total last minute changes! Joe was understanding and professional the entire time. We are so grateful to have found someone as fun and uplifting and supportive as Joe as our photographer. He was also prompt in responding and attended to all our needs and wishes. Couldn't have asked for a better professional and exceptional photographer for our special day! I would recommend Joe and his staff to anyone who wants to get the job done and done in a complete, professional, and timely manner. Thank you Joe for making our wedding day a day to remember for years to come!

Danielle was our wedding photographer for our April 10th wedding. She was amazing! She was very easy to work with and very personalable. Very easy to get along with personality. I felt very comfortable around her and she was really good at directing us for different positions for pictures. You could tell she loves what she does. Her passion really comes out in her work. She also loved my picture ideas that I suggested as well. She really captured the moment for us. Can't wait to see all the pictures! I would be excited to use her again for a future!!

Sheryl was the photographer at our wedding, and I cannot say enough about the amazing job she did. Everything from her communication to her professionalism was outstanding. She made everyone at the wedding feel comfortable and at ease. I was so impressed with the little things she did like making sure my dad has his boutonniere on before the ceremony and capturing the moments that I would never have thought of. Above all if you want a photographer to be creative and use her artistic skills to create breathtaking results, then Sheryl is the one!

Nicole and her husband photographed our wedding and we couldn't be happier! They are so nice and professional. They listened to what type of photos we wanted and took a wide variety of pictures. They captured the moments perfectly and really took it to the next level with the posed photos I asked them for that we took in a separate location from the ceremony and reception itself. One of the most important things to me was to get some pictures that were very unique and highly stylized (not typical wedding photos). They really came through for us and delivered exactly what I wanted as well as taking fantastic wedding pictures that tell the whole story of our day from start to finish. The last thing I'd like to say about them is that they were so great to work with. During all the commotion and stress leading up to and during the day itself, it was important to me to work with people who are truly nice people as well as talented at what they do. 100% professional. I would highly recommend them!!

Hugh was amazing to work with from prepping for the event until after the event. He was professional, friendly and super helpful. He was able to bring along a friend who was equally as great. The guests at the event loved both of them and inquired about who the photographers were after the event! And of course we were more than happy with the quality of the photos! Great work!!

Palo is honestly the best wedding photographer and he makes breathtaking videos!!! First, we hired him for our engagement shoot and after we have seen the lovely pictures we had to book him for our wedding day. He is a true artist and made both of us feel very comfortable in front of camera. The images and video came out amazing and after I posted everything on my social media my friends instantly started begging me for his number. Palo, thanks to your amazing talent we have pictures that we will cherish for a lifetime.

I came across LilyLove 5 years ago when I was on the market for a wedding photographer. She was a new, emerging artist however her work has never faltered. Although she didn't shoot my wedding ( emergency cancellation on my part) she did deliver on the first of many family and lifestyle sessions. She has helped us document the growth and expansion of my family. Each time tastefully, perfectly edited and executed. She's not just a point and shoot type person. She objective, will stop to fix your hair or get tasteful in the moment shots. Each second she captures is one you can definitely relive and get lost in. Each handmade set up and holiday session is definitely one of a kind and adds the element of living a fairy tale. Her talent is an art and so much larger than just wedding coverage, it's life as you would love to remember it through loving and fun eyes. It's an honor and privilege to be her client.

Peter is the consummate professional and put us and everyone at our wedding at ease. Everyone looked very relaxed and lively, nothing looked posed or awkward because he's personable and has a very relaxing personality. He's a wonderful photographer and prioritized communicating with us on what we needed, what we were looking for, and how to achieve what we wanted. He also guided us on interesting and surprising ideas we couldn't have imagined, and got us many beautiful shots for our engagement and wedding.

Wayne is a very talented photographer and an amazing person. It was such an honor to have him to be part of our big day! All our families and friends were amazed by the wedding pictures, much more beautiful than we ever expected. We received all the GREAT quality wedding pictures just in 1-2 days right after our wedding. He even created a wonderful video clip that captured and condensed everything from our wedding day in a 1:30 minute video, and everyone just adores the video clip. He captured so many little details and unexpected moments. He was so calm, patient, and very friendly to everyone at the wedding. Wayne was with us before, during, and after the ceremony and stayed until after our first dance. He captured all the family and individual portraits. His personality, photography, and professional skills is much appreciated! We would highly recommend to have him as your photographer for your important occasions! He is a brilliant photographer and nicest man!

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.
