Albert did a phenomenal job with my wedding video! He was also a delight to work with! He was so patient and worked ever so hard (my wedding was a 12 hour event!) I think the hardest part for him was editing the video and making sure all the highlights I wanted were included in my video. He did not disappoint! I got every clip I wanted, and he incorporated all my favorite music and did everything I had requested. It's been a year since my wedding and recently watched the video again and all the best memories were captured! Thank you Albert for being the most responsive, patient person to work with and developing a quality wedding video that my husband and I (and now our daughter) will always enjoy!!!!

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.

Our experience with Cindy was outstanding, amazing, and overall incredible. Having Cindy as our Wedding Photographer was really the smartest decision we could have made. She is personable, knows exactly what she's doing and somehow managed to capture moments that we didn't even realize were taking place. It was like having a really good friend who just happens to be an amazing photographer. We wanted a photographer who could go with the flow. We wanted somebody who would know what to do and just simply fit in to our program and not be regimented. So he knows exactly what she's doing and will be the perfect choice for any bride or groom. If you're reading this and you haven't hired her yet and I encourage you to look beyond the five stars, stop looking and hire her. I can't give more than 5 Stars but I wish I could. Thank you again Cindy!

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.

Adam and Hanna were our Wedding Photographers in November 2016. Everything was very professional from the first time we met them, email communication in between, and on the day of our wedding. They were specific in asking us which photos we desired to be taken and were careful to take these and more! We were very impressed by the results and the price. Adam and Hanna provided us with incredible, professionally done photos that we will cherish for the rest of our lives. Everyone we show our photos to are amazed at the quality. There's no one else out there who charges a great, low price with high quality! I would definitely recommend them to anyone.

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!

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.

We are so happy we found Eric as our wedding photographer. He was such a pleasure to work with. He was on time but we weren't ready yet. He was so patient and able to work around us. He really knows his craft and has a great eye. He can easily see a great photo opportunity and go with it. We appreciate his professionalism and attention to detail. We are very happy with our photos. Outstanding! We highly recommend Eric and his staff for any big event. Our wedding photos are beautiful. Thank you Eric!

Im soooo happy I finally got to shoot with this guy! For all you models & non-models looking to do a sexy boudoir, follow/hit up Cheshire! I have to say, he’s one of the best boudoir photographers I’ve ever had. Not only is his studio simply gorg, but he also makes you feel comfortable & incredibly beautiful. Meeting you with champagne, grapes/cheese/crackers while you’re getting ready makes you feel like you’re the only special one during your shoot. I felt like a million bucks shooting in front of him. By being so taken care of, your photos will definitely reflect that and turn out AMAZING! Even my unedited photos were simply beautiful! Whether you’re doing a boudoir for yourself or for your loved one, reach out to @oaktownboudoir for your bookings!

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.

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!

I've been modeling for about a year now, and the only reason I was even able to get my foot in the door a fraction of the way was because of Nico. He was the first person I ever shot with. Since that time we have worked together numerous other times. My favorite thing about Nico, besides his obviously gorgeous photographs, is how comfortable he makes me feel when we shoot. I love pushing the boundaries of my art and being able to work with Nico is the only way I'm able to do that. Nico loves what he does and it shows 100% of the way through his work. He cares about making me, and every other model he's worked with I have no doubt, feel respected. This is a huge problem in the industry, but photographers like Nico are hopefully the forefront of a big change that needs to happen. I use so many photo's that Nico has taken of me in my portfolio, and my agent loves them .

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.
