Sechrest Photography was available for our family portraits on short notice, which we really appreciated. Alan and Ina were so easy to work and very professional. They captured all 15 of us in such amazing photos, their quality of work was excellent. The portrait packages they put together make it easy to pick all of your favorites! Their prices were also very comparable and extremely affordable. We are so happy with the results, they have truly captured memories we will have for a lifetime! I highly recommend Sechrest Photography!!

Regarding Joanne's response, she acknowledged I am in need of an author photo. Joanne had asked if my book is print or online, she also mentioned photography will be high definition, which is also what my publisher had requested. I will share more after Joanne and I meet.

I've worked with Palo on several photography and videography projects, but the highlight was the video he made for my sister's wedding. He was on time, professional, and gracious for the entire day, which was so helpful amid the stress of a wedding. Palo didn't miss a thing, and the footage from the wedding is perfect. From tiny details on the dress and rings, to gorgeous aerial shots of the venue, and sweet moments throughout the evening, the final video is the perfect recap of an awesome day. The video is set to music perfectly, with snippets of vows which were an unexpected and amazing surprise. Everyone in my family LOVES the video, especially the bride and groom. If you haven't considered videography for your wedding, do it--and book Palo. You will not be disappointed!

Dia and Michael were amazing! Ours was a small intimate wedding and they were so accommodating and professional. I would highly recommend Meraz photography! They really made our day special, even when our teenage daughter started being "sassy" they handled it with poise and grace! I cannot say enough great things about Meraz photography! You won't regret hiring them for your event!

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 enjoyed working with Mario. He was very personable, professional and very capable with his high end drone. I asked Mario to shoot both still photographs and 4K video footage. All of which came out beautiful. In addition to the high quality service, Mario's pricing was very reasonable and I would definitely use his service again, as well as recommend him to others needing either drone photography or video.

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!

We hired Jimmy Wu of Jimmy Wu Photography for the Grand Opening of our social enterprise coffee businesses. We had many attractions and entertainment that day and over 300 attendees. Jimmy was able to capture candid moments of customers enjoying themselves, our artists and musicians performing, as well as product photos for future use. Jimmy was punctual, extremely professional and delivered the final product promptly. We will definitely hire him again for our future events!

It was a pleasure working with Jim from Shick Photography. We wanted to do a photo shoot for our son to celebrate his upcoming graduation. Jim meet us at Old Poway Park in Poway. He was there early and had already scouted the area. He has good good eye for locations and we took plenty of photos. Our photo shoot was on Sunday and we received the proofs by Wednesday of that week. We were quite pleased on how the photos turned out and plan to use Shick Photography for our family photos in the near future.

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.
