My family and I were vacationing in Newport from out of state and chose Danielle to capture our beach fun. I had never been to the area before and didn't know any photographers much less any good spots that would work well for family photographs. After exchanging some emails a few weeks before our arrival, we set a date and location for our photos. Danielle was prompt, professional, and chose an excellent location for the photos. Our session was no easy task because I have two small children, ages 5 and 2. Combine that with water and sand and you get a recipe for disaster, but Danielle was able to somehow capture great photographs of my family. I would definitely use her again in the future.

Joanne is one of the most creative photographers we have ever met. She was very professional and she was such a pleasure to work with. We were totally comfortable during the session and she was very punctual. She had a state of the art camera and the finished photos were spectacular; so gorgeous. We would highly recommend Joanne to anyone looking for a photographer for a high end photo shoot.. Joanne, thank-you for a great day; you are amazing! Cathy and Jessica Thank-you Joanne you are wonderful.

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.

I highly recommend Heather as a photographer. She was very accommodating and handled some tough lighting conditions without hesitation. She went out of her way to make sure that I was happy with both the images that she took, but also with the entire logistical process. She arrived to our event well repaired and skilled with your equipment. I'm very happy with Heather and her services.

He was very professional and coordinated well with the photographers. He arrived early to capture the bridal parties getting ready and stayed throughout the evening until the reception was almost over. We are excited to see the beauty he captured of our special day!

Olga is the Best! If you are looking to hire a photographer you have found the one! My husband and I recently had Olga photograph our elopement. Our original Big Sur wedding plans were thwarted due to the Soberanes Wildfire. So when we needed a new photographer TWO DAYS before our wedding we were beyond grateful, excited, and LUCKY to have found Olga!! Olga was super helpful from our first point of contact and helped to soothe my anxiety about planning a whole new wedding. She was extremely professional, on time, and beyond sweet. I loved how we were able to ask for different family shots and she made sure to capture those. She made sure we posed correctly to look nice on film and that our ceremony flowed elegantly. To top it all off she is incredibly talented, from the photos we have seen thus far they are so pretty. Our family remarked they should belong in a magazine! I am so happy to have worked with Olga and know that we will continue to use her for other occasions in the future. Thank you so much Olga for making our day so special and capturing it forever.

She did a great job at the actual wedding but what really impressed me was the sending of the USB and photo frame with a picture form the wedding inside of it. The USB itself was actually inside of a custom made wooden box and the USB was a wooden card with her company name on it. She chose a beautiful picture from the wedding to put in the photo frame that matched the beach these of our wedding. She is affordable, professional, and an amazing deal. Definitely recommend.

Jesse and his team were highly professional and accessible leading up to our event and throughout the night. We had two photographers total; one at the photo booth with lighting and one roving the party. this was a perfect set up for what we required. Will definitely book Jesse next time my company comes to town for a party!

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!!!!

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!

I am so happy with the results of our Engagement photos! Mickey is one of the most down-to-earth and highly creative photographers we have ever seen and experienced. He reached out, recreated the vision I had for the photos (the end product was better than I hoped for) and ensured we were happy with the end results. He made the whole experience personable, intimate and promised a quick turnaround that we hadn't expected. Not only do you get to know him well but Patti was a sweetheart too! They make a great team and are such a pleasure to be around. We will be recommending him to everyone we know and hope to use him for future projects.

We found Lacey when we were looking for someone to take pictures for our family to celebrate my mom’s 70th. We are from out of town so we were a little nervous about choosing the right photographer, but everything went better than we imagined. Lacey was very patient and friendly and her pictures are the best ones that my family and I have ever taken. I’ve attached a few. She was able to capture everyone’s personalities perfectly! Thank you Lacey!!

Jimmy was a very easygoing and flexible photographer. He was very patient as he photographed our large extended family of 15 (including my wily 3 year old son!). We went over in our allotted time and he graciously didn't charge us more for that. Need I say that he was a great value. We got our pictures, edited, back so quickly too, which made it nice because we needed some of the pictures for our holiday cards. He responded to emails very quickly. It should be noted that we were a very rambunctious, 'Type A' sort of group and we provided a lot of the ideas of how we would be composed in each picture. We might have benefitted from more direct guidance from Jimmy on how to be arranged, what angles would look best on us, and getting both kids and adults to look into the camera, but he was probably just going with the flow. A small comment, because we think he would provide that guidance if we were to ask for it. We would definitely utilize his services again! Thanks Jimmy!

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.
