We hired Will to shoot two large group photos for a corporate training and deliver prints by the next business day and he completed the job seamlessly and professionally. He was easy to get in touch with and very reliable. I coordinated this training in 15 different markets with 15 different photographers, and Will was one of our favorites! I would recommend Will for any photography job in the area!

It was a wonderful experience! We surprised the bachelorette with a photo session and it really worked out well! The bridesmaids didn't know each other from before the wedding so it was great to get everyone together in front of the camera as before the big day. This photographer was so professional, patient, and kind. He did such a great job with our group and we cannot wait to see the final product!!

Kelli was great! She offered us advise on the best time of day to have our beach wedding, and arrived early on the day. We were so impressed with her energy and insight in finding the perfect places for us to pose. She also did a lot of candid shots. Kelli is very personable and very knowledgeable about lighting. Working with her was very easy, we were able to relax and enjoy the experience. The pics we have seen are awesome, and I know the rest will be as well! I highly recommend Kelli to anyone looking for a professional photographer.

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!

My family and I had a great experience with Sheryl. We had a huge family photo shoot due a very meaningful reunion- with a newborn, several Oct. birthday celebrants, and a family member that has been in remission with cancer for one year to the date. I was coming from out of state and I searched online for photographers. What caught my attention and what drew me to Sheryl was her great eye and great shots from her portfolio. The colors in her pictures were vivid and creative and wanted to have memorable family photo shoot. She was very professional, easy to contact and talk with. One family member has to be careful with large crowds due to health issues, and she worked well with the space we had. She was resourceful, efficient and accommodating. And she worked well with all the kids- which were 6 in total! Overall, I highly recommend Sheryl for her professionalism, her talent, and for her thoughtfulness.

I would first like to say, I NEVER write reviews but Jami is so great I truly felt like taking the time to share this. If you're looking for an awesome professional photographer that will take amazing photos then Jami is your girl. Not only was she easy to work with, responsive, timely and all around just lovely to deal with - she took the most beautiful photos. She blends right in with the crowd as though she's one of your friends capturing special moments. I loved working with her so much, I've already hired her again for another event. This was my first time using Thumbtack and it was the best because of Jami. I wish I could give her 6 stars for everything.

I worked with Amina Touray when shooting my album cover in May 2013, which ended up with a NAACP Image Nomination! We shot outside in Pasadena during 3-4 hours and I felt very comfortable and relaxed in her presence. Amina and her make up artist were on time, ready for me and listened to my concerns and specific needs regarding the make up and angles of the shooting my body. I was very impressed with her way of giving me instructions and feedback, which helped me get what I wanted-the perfect pic for an album cover. The only thing that could have been better, was the area to get my make up done at, but that's more of a convienience issue than a must. Amina is by far one of the most talented photographers I've worked with, and I've since done 2 more shoots with her, as well as purchased her services for 2 friends of mine, so that they could get to feel like a superstar for a day, like I did.

Sean has been great from the very beginning. He did our Engagement Shoot and our Wedding. Our engagement photos were amazing and from what I have seen so far, the wedding pictures are just as equally amazing. I am really excited to see what he puts together for our video. We really loved working with him and his crew. They were very easy going and worked hard to get all of the shots that I had wanted. I have already recommended him to a few of my friends. Also, he was very affordable and I know for me personally, I was on a tight budget for the wedding, and couldn't afford the rates that most photographer/videographers charge. I really got lucky when I found him. Thank you Sean for everything! And I can't wait to see the rest! :) Sabrina

Joe was a terrific photographer. I had to postpone the photos 3 times due to weather, and he was very patient and made himself available throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for drone photography and we will be hiring him again for future projects.

I had excellent experience with Haldane Morris Photography. He is so professional. He know exactly what he is doing. I spent total three hours and got so much high quality photos. His technique is different compare to many other photographers who i had been working with. With those photos you don't really need a photoshop. He also working with such a talented makeup/hair stylist Keon Cruz, very professional , his light makeup perfect for the headshot. So you can also hiring him as well, if you want to. I highly recommending Haldane Morris Photography. :) Wish you all stay beautiful:*!!!! Anastasiya Mitrunen.

Thank you Mukaila for being such a great photographer for my son's first birthday! My guests thought that the pictures turned out well. Mukaila communicated well through email with specifics of our party. He also arrived on time and was able to take pictures of all the details of our party like I wanted. He was also able to be inconspicuous when he needed to be to get all the action pictures. Turn around time for the pictures was only a week. That is a lot quicker than a lot of other photographers that I have worked with before. If we ever have another event, I would definitely get a hold of Mukaila again.

Yanira was an amazing photographer. She photographed my daughter's 15th birthday and captured every important moment beautifully. She was professional and was so willing to do all I had asked of her with grace and professionalism. At very late notice, I asked her to come early to photograph my daughter as she was getting ready and without hesitation she granted my request, was prompt and went right to work! She is reliable and was outstanding at capturing every detail of our party including pictures with family members and friends, flowers, decor, all the special moments I would have never thought of! She left no detail unnoticed. The pictures are of the highest quality and perfect! I would highly recommend her and I am definitely using her again! I am grateful for having the all the special moments so beautifully captured by Miss Yanira!

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.
