From my first inquiry about the project to delivering our finished photos, I found Jessica to be a true first-class professional. Even my skeptical husband (who didn't think we needed professional photographers for a family shoot) was blown away with the photos and my entire family of 5 truly feel that we hit the "photographer jackpot" when we found Jessica and Bobby. Thank you for listening to our needs and for making us feel very comfortable during the shoots at Sunset Cliffs. My children loved the time you both spent with them and how you added some special creative magic to make some playful pictures for us. We really appreciate how you were also so responsive after the shoot, and for delivering our photos within a 3 day turnaround. We are definitely enjoying digitally viewing our family and individual photos now, but the hard part is selecting which photos of the many we all love to be "printed or framed." Bottom line, we are confident Jessica and Bobby will also exceed your expectations like they did ours. Your overall experience will be nothing short of remarkable.

Pavol is a lifesaver! I need an event photographer last minute (like within 3 hours of posting on here) and Pavol was not only quick in response but was onsite with me walking the property within 2 hours. He was polite, professional, and very accommodating to our photography needs. I would give him my highest recommendation for your events! I look forward to using his work in my upcoming publications and on social media. Thank you Pavol and well done! I look forward to working with you again on any future San Diego projects!

I had a sisters photo shoot by Olga in Oman. It was such a great experience because not only did she manage to capture our "photo" faces, but she also captured priceless moments of us laughing, talking, and simply being sisters. I will always cherish that photo shoot because she made an average place look like we are in heaven, and she made us look like natural models in the pictures. I can't wait for her to shoot more of my photos. She is the only photographer I have met that doesn't ask you fake a pose, and she is definitely not afraid to get down and dirty to get some cool shots! Great work and keep it up Olga!

If you are looking for photographers look no further! Dia and her husband are true professionals who created wonderful memories for us. They braved the rain for our wedding day, all while still taking truly wonderful photos. They made every effort to please our timeframe and we couldn’t have asked for more. When we head back to Huntington Beach for more photos we now have found our photographers. Thank you guys once again

Christina & Jake made this year's family photo session a wonderful, hassle free experience -- which can be challenging when a 5 year boy is involved! We don't live in California, so I was initially stressed about the time involved to research photographers & their styles in addition to a location that would be unique. From the initial request for info all the way through receiving the portrait package -- they were extremely responsive, amazing & were very thoughtful in their location recommendations based on what I was looking for (even though I didn't really know what I was looking for). In person, they immediately made us all feel at ease and made it a fun experience. The pictures turned out AMAZING ...and they sent them to me the next night -- UNBELIEVABLE turnaround time! I would highly recommend them; in fact I have already told my friends who live in the SD area about them. We would definitely use them again!!!!

I booked Heather to photograph our wedding but later shfound out she had another commitment. She was able to find another photographer to cover my wedding. I trusted heather when she said this new photographer was awesome. She was right!! Heather could of just canceled but then I would have been so stressed hunting to find a replacement. Everything worked out fine.

As a business owner it is imperative that I contact and utilize the services of other professionals to help me with the areas that I lack in. I got on Thumbtack last week for the first time and contacted photographer Patrick Sanford. Patrick was able to see me within two days of our initial conversation and I was very pleased with his quick response and ability to squeeze me into his schedule. I have a personal training studio and was in need of some high quality fitness photos. WOW. I was blown away by the quality and look of the photos and the editing job was done in less than 24 hours. He met me and gave a thumb drive with over 200 edited professional images. I am very grateful for his expertise and willingness to meet my needs as promptly as he did. I highly recommend Patrick as a photographer. Professional, great eye and super cool. I will be doing more work with him in the future!

Deborah has a keen sense of what makes a great photo and has the ability to capture those unforgettable moments, even the ones you never saw happen. She took action shots of my son during his beach volleyball tournament and they were amazing. I used to think I could take a pretty good picture with my phone, now I know what a huge difference a professional photographer makes. I would highly recommend her if you need some professional and amazing pics! We also had her take my daughters graduation announcement photos and they were outstanding. She really knows how to get that perfect shot!

Eric by far had some of the best work i've seen in a very long time. He's definitely a professional with incredible talent. I hired Eric to photograph a club event, as I'm a DJ and needed to build my portfolio. Unfortunately, things didn't work out and Eric didn't get to shoot the event due to a misunderstanding between the venue and promoter, but I'll definitely be utilizing Eric's services again in the future.

    Rick took some amazing photos of my work that helped me build my online business. The truly beautiful photos were way beyond what I could do with the camera on my phone (which is what I was using before.) My small business has picked up dramatically since posting the photos he took. What a difference professional photographs are to online traffic. Rick is a professional, quality photographer with a great eye for detail. I plan to enlist him again to continue photographing my future projects.

    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.
