Jen was a pleasure to work with and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for a great Bay Area photographer. She knew her way around city hall and the civic ceremony process, which helped calm our nerves. Her directions during the photo shoot were clear, helpful, fun, and gentle. She is fantastic! Thank you so much, Jen.

Overall, we want to give our highest recommendation to KRA Image Designs (Anna and Jonathon). After an extensive search for an engagement photographer, we came across KRA Image Designs and ultimately decided to go with them because of the beauty of their photography, value, and quick communication. Since we were getting married in San Francisco, we wanted to capture some of the iconic SF landmarks like the Golden Gate Bridge, Presidio Park, and Legion of Honor. Anna and Jonathon were very knowledgeable about the area, and suggested areas that would look aesthetically best on camera. When meeting them on the day of our engagement shoot, their friendliness and warmth quickly made us feel comfortable in front of the camera. Despite the fact that I did not know American Sign Language, communicating with them was never a problem. It was very nice to see how Anna and Jonathon work with each other - taking turns with the camera, posing us (which we really needed guidance on), and giving one another feedback for the best shot. They did a perfect mix capturing posed shots, and candid shots. We had an outfit and location change, and they were patient and accommodated the time it took us to change and relocate areas. We previously encountered photographers that scrutinized the clock and once their scheduled time was over they would dart away, but Anna and Jonathon wanted to take advantage of the lighting, scenery, and mood to capture the right photographs. Normally, we are very awkward on camera, but somehow Anna and Jonathon worked magic to make us comfortable with the camera. The time it took to receive our photographs was fairly quick - a little less than a month after our engagement shoot. When we received the CD of our photographs in the mail, we were dreading how we would look, but our photographs turned out amazing. We had so many excellent photos to choose from, and it was difficult hand picking just a few to display at our wedding. We were very proud to show them to our friends and family, and really could not ask for more. Thank you Anna and Jonathon – we were so lucky to work with such a talented team of photographers.

Lolita is an amazing professional! More than a photographer Lolita is a great human being... we hired her for our courthouse wedding and without a doubt was the best thing I did! She was there early took a bunch of great pictures, during all the wedding proceedings she was taking pictures of us and also my family and friends. The great thing about working with Lolita is how much fun we had and After the awesome experience working with Lolita she gave us a lot of pictures of our courthouse wedding. A day we will remember forever! We will definitely hire Lolita many other times!!!

Talented, professional, and flexible. He took my graduations photos from UC Davis and met up with me in the area. He brought his equipment and implemented all my ideas. Overall, open-minded and great to work with. His pricing was cheaper than most photographers and photos were received sooner than I thought. I highly recommend.

Planning a wedding is stressful enough, but not knowing what the results are from the vendors you choose can bring the plans to a standstill. That's where I was before finding Jenn on thumbtack. When she replied to my photography request it was not the estimate that made up my mind; it was the fact that she answered my call! After the first two minutes speaking with her, I knew I found my photographer. Jenn was very upfront with what I could expect from her for the price she was offering. There was nothing that she didn't cover in terms of her contract, the deposit, and the final product. I liked Jenn from the very first moment I spoke with her. Every step of the way she worked with me either by telephone or email. I was fortunate enough that our schedules allowed for a site visit where we had the opportunity to meet in person prior to the big day. Jenn brought her camera and took some "test" shots that she posted on her blog. All I can say is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!! Now I was excited for the wedding day! September 3rd finally arrived and I am still bragging to anyone willing to listen about my awesome photographers. Jenn and Shannon were truly a dream to work with. They are super relaxed and not worried about the "perfect picture" but photographing the perfect moment. Jenn and Shannon let my hubby and I call all the shots as far as who and where. Our families were a bit difficult to gather at times, and I worried this could irritate the photographers; not Jenn and Shannon! They made sure that we did not miss our sunset photos and always asked our thoughts on their creative visions. Every once in awhile, Jenn would give me a sneak peek at an amazing shot she just captured! I loved that about her. Anyone thinking of hiring Kept in Time Photography by Jenn & Shannon Mormon will not be disappointed. Their photos are stunning and they are two of the nicest people to work with. I am more than satisfied with the entire experience and will be using them for all future photography needs. Highly recommended by a very happy Bride!!

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.

My wife and I called looking for some professional headshots. We had a wonderful experience working with Robert from Kyber Light. Robert offered competitive pricing, had open availability when we needed it, provided helpful advice about clothes, etc., and arrived on time. Some photographers are too "laissez faire" for my taste- they rely on the subject to look good. Robert was much more supportive, posing us with intention and helping us to look our best in the photos. The turnaround time was incredible- we had shots to look at later that night! Thanks so much to Kyber Light Photography- we would recommend them for anyone and any occasion.

Damian was such a pleasure to work with. They are professional and super open minded to different opinions. We wanted to capture the authentic, natural moments on our big day, and their team nicely delivered that. With 2 photographers and 2 videographers, Damian and his team edited our photos the way we wanted and made an awesome video that powerfully summarized the wedding. We would highly recommend working with Heart + Soul.

Chris was our 30th Anniversary and Wedding Vow Renewal Celebration Photographer. He was terrific to work with. We doen't have the pictures yet, but he took quite a lot and we're willing to wait for the 'Best'! Chris did our Pre-Wedding Shoot at 2 locations, The World Peace Rose Garden behind the Sacramento State Capitol, and at the Sacramento Tower Bridge. We were thrilled with the results. Chris is a real pro and a technical expert, with a great eye for details. Here's a pic from our pre-Wedding Shoot.

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.
