I recommend Danielle very highly. My husband and I did an engagement photoshoot last night. Danielle was on time, very fun and adventurous for creative pictures, puts you at ease, she loves what she does and that makes it great because you know the work will be good. We had a sunset shoot and it was perfect! She knew where to go, how to pose and also was open for more ideas if we wanted. We were there before the sunset so had fun before during and after it. We cannot wait to see all the photos! Thank you Danielle :) PS: she will be our wedding photographer as well.

Jessica was awesome to work with. Her creative style lends itself beautifully for outdoor photo shoots using nature as an incredible backdrop. Thank you Jessica for all the lovely photo's of our 25th wedding anniversary renewal ceremony. It was a pleasure working with you and your husband Bobby.

Heather did such a wonderful job during my photo shoot. Before the shoot she helped me prepare very well by creating a Pinterest board for potential looks and conference calls to discuss parking, location, hair and what type of makeup will look best in the pictures. During the shoot she was very friendly, punctual, and made me feel at ease while taking the pictures. She was very professional, outgoing, friendly, and made sure I got the best shots. After the photoshoot, I was very surprised how quickly Heather uploaded the photos, she also kept me updated the entire process. Everyone who saw Heather "in action" was very impressed and now want to book her! If you want quality service, photos, and a great photographer, please book Heather! Thank you again Heather, for such a great photoshoot and making my birthday special!

First of all Pao i want to say thank you for making us happy. Pao is very professional when it comes to his job his always on time. He did a couple shoot one for my engagement and the other one is for my wedding. its not often that you find a VERY GOOD/ EXCELLENT photographer/videographer and at same time HONEST people. my husband and i are so busy i never know that my husband already pay them and i give them another envelope the payment and a gift. they already leave the place but Pao and his partner came back telling us. that i give them to much money. My family and my visitors in my wedding are glad to hear that in this crazy world good people are still exists. Pao and his partner are not just very good at their job they are honest too. Fyi our engagement photos are extremely pleased....will update about the photos of our wedding soon. To all the couples planning for the best wedding photographer/videographer i recommend this person as soon as he start holding his camera he cant stop!!! The best!!!!

Awesome! We all know pictures are one of the most important parts of the wedding. What an amazing crew this guy has. I had them for the entire big day. He did all of the getting ready shots. Even had a drone to get some amazing air photos. The wedding was flawless. Russ even put together a timeline for me because I was so overwhelmed. They got every shot I could have possibly asked for! They were extremely professional and very helpful. I honestly can not say enough good things about this team. Customer service is huge to me. They went beyond exceptional customer care. You will be happy you chose them! Thanks again for everything! You made our day a little bit better by being a part of it! -Marissa

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

My husband and I luckily stumbled upon Tricia's website and we immediately fell in love with her photos. We instantly hired her to shot both our engagement photos and wedding photos. Not only is Tricia an amazing photographer but her and her husband LJ are just amazing people who are so fun to be around. They made our engagement shoot and our wedding day so much fun! Everyone who has seen our pictures are simply blown away (as are we). They have exceeded my expectations and I can't believe that I was so lucky to find Tricia. If you want amazing photographs, do not hesitate in choosing Equinox Photo. I already know that I will only be using Tricia from here on out to capture all of our big events. Thanks again Tricia and LJ for making our wedding so special and capturing our personalities so spot on!!!! xoxo- Cate and Danny

Jesse is AWESOME! I have worked with him on numerous occasions from corporate events to even my own wedding. He and his staff are great to work with. Jesse always arrives on time, comes prepared and gets involved with the clients to establish a personal relationship and not just be all business. I continue to refer him to any and all of my clients as his services are a great addition to any event. I highly recommend Jesse Arroyo for all your photography needs!

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.

Robert Dennis has taken pictures for me for both my wedding and professional events and his work has always been incredible. The clarity and sharp images in his photographs were honestly hard to believe, even in this day in age of technology. I have never been disappointed with his work. Robert is a quality individual as well. He is polite, quick, and very engaging. He kept me aware of what he was doing so that I was clued into every step of his thought process. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a flawless photo finish.

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!!

Jayson photographed my wedding, and my husband and I could not be more happy with the experience and results! A personal pet peeve of mine is when wedding photographers distract all the guests by getting up close to the ceremony, ruining the experience for everyone watching in person. Jayson is ninja-like in his ability to blend in to the background while he photographs from afar, producing beautiful shots of the ceremony while going completely unnoticed by any of the guests. When it came time to take posed photographs, he did exactly as I asked and moved it along quickly, so it didn’t feel tedious or disorganized. That’s a major plus when you’ve already spent hours organizing every other aspect of the event. I would highly recommend Juxtaposition for your wedding or event!

Working with Alan is a pleasure every time. To find someone in business that I can trust to do the right thing, produce excellent quality products and services, all while making sure he treats his customers fairly is a rare gem and I'm lucky to get to work with him. Photography: He excels at and enjoys the art and discipline of photography. This is the best sort of photographer to work with! You will be thrilled with the products/services you get from him. Integrity: His morals and conscience point due North. If something goes wrong, he makes a huge effort to make sure it's righted again. Honesty: He is truly the "Do unto others" type. I love working with him because there has never been a feeling of unease or mistrust. If he says he is going to do something, he makes good every time. There are plenty of questionable characters we encounter in business, Alan is NOT one of them! Timeliness: Alan understands life is busy but commitments mean something. He is respectful of others' time and does what he says he will do when he says he will do it. I will do business with Alan every chance I get because I know I will be treated fairly, my expectations will be met or exceeded, and I will walk away from the transaction delighted with the results and the experience.

Eric was the photographer for my military retirement on the Midway Museum. We could not have had a better experience! He showed up early, and stayed until we were sure we had all the pictures we could've wanted. He had excellent communication, and the pictures were fantastic! From the candid shots we didn't even know he was taking, to the group and posed shots were all perfect! He turned the pictures around quickly despite a busy schedule. I would definitely use Eric again for any photography I might need!

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.
