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.

Awesome...and...Awesome ! Both working with Brian and his pictures! Brian is the nicest, most easy-going guy and everyone loved him! He came to the venue the day before the wedding and we talked about the different photo op locations and ideas my daughter had. He was open to whatever we wanted, very flexible and hard working. He had to go up and down the mansion stairs multiple times to capture both the girls getting ready upstairs and the groomsmen downstairs. He was all over the place! He fit right in with all of us, and I felt like we'd known him for years! He stayed working for as long as we needed to get all of the events recorded and never missed a beat (or shot)! His rate for the day was very very reasonable for the amount of work he did and while processing time for all of the pics (over a 1000) will take several weeks, he was able to upload up a generous number of shots highlighting the whole day to a website for viewing and downloading within about a week! And his pictures are truly amazing! He captured so much love and happiness in everything and everyone! I'm so happy we chose Brian to shoot my daughter's wedding and can't recommend him enough to anyone looking for a wedding photographer! He just the right person for the job. Hands down. I can't wait to see the rest of the pictures and we'll definitely use him again for any other big photography events!

We are very fortunate to have Michael shoot our wedding pics. It was a very small civil ceremony in SF city hall with just barest attendance, me my husband and 1 witness. I was quite happy with the pictures after. I actually only asked him to shoot during the ceremony but he said we can get shots on the top floor as well if we wanted to. I was happy to oblige. Although I got tired pretty quickly because I've never been in a situation like that. ^_^ My husband is also a serious hobby photographer so I'm more used to unaware shots. In the short time I could tolerate Michael captured several impressive action shots. We are very fortunate to be blessed by his talent. And thank you also for being patient with us. I wanted the best photographer for my wedding and I'm happy to get it. 😊

Cindy was the exact personality you need in a wedding photographer: caring and assertive in her direction, without being pushy. She was incredibly open and kind to all our friends and family. She's dependable and calming. And of course the photos: they were beautiful beyond our expectations!

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.

Stavan and his team were the photographers and videographer at our wedding a couple of weeks ago in Gilroy CA. They were reliable, energetic, personable, very creative and professional in every way. The showed us on time. Every guest was impressed how approachable they were. We can't wait to see the photos! My wife is counting down the dates to get the pictures and I feel sure they are going to amaze us! I will return with more reviews after we get the pictures and videos.

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.

Eric and his assistant, Claire were so professionally unobtrusive during my daughter’s wedding event, I did not even notice they were there. The proof of their presence is in the captivating candid photos and the beautiful artistic photos that recorded the entire day. Everyone looks amazing. Eric perfectly captured the unique personalities of the bride and groom throughput the day. I was not able to meet Eric until the day of the wedding because I live overseas. I chose based upon his portfolio and online communication. What could have been a series of pretty pictures of a cookie cutter country club wedding with another photographer is instead a perfect blend of photojournalism, fine art, and traditional styles, Eric’s and Claire’s work show the very present, palpable feelings between the bride and groom. Perfect.

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!

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.

We hired Usman for both our wedding photographer and videographer in March 2017. From the very first meeting he not only saw our vision but he walked us through the entire process. Even before our wedding day I knew we made the right choice. On our wedding day Usman and his wife blended in perfectly and captured exactly what we wanted. I highly recommend him, you will not be disappointed.

Before working with Nico, he was already one of my favorite photographers. His style always caught my eye, but working with him cemented his place in my heart! He is professional and hilarious. We had so much fun searching for impromptu spots and making jokes while shooting. The way Nico posed me during shoots was effortless and easy. He has very clear ideas, and explains how he wants the shot to look so the model has a clear idea of the vision. He was open to my ideas and I felt like we were creative equals. I cannot wait to shoot with him again. A wonderful experience!

Amazing experience! She is so kind and thoughtful and very clearly talented. I follow her on Instagram and amazed by the quality of her work. I hired her for wedding getting ready pictures and ended up having her stay for the whole wedding. She showed me various shots as she was taking them to make sure I knew what kind of shots she was able to get, which I appreciated as most photographers don’t have anything to show you until many weeks later. She was very respectful of time and my other wedding photographer, but willing to help guide through what wound otherwise by a very hectic day! She was very responsive to time and location changes. I can’t say anything but positive things!! Please choose to work with Inna, you won’t regret it!

I can't say enough wonderful things about Radostina Photography. Not only is she the most talented photographer I've ever met, but she also is extremely punctual and is willing to control crowds to get the shot. She photographed our engagement pictures and wedding pictures and for both shots she was absolutely amazing! She even photographed us with our dogs and she was able to capture each of their personalities amazingly. All in all, I will be hiring her for every milestone in my life because her work is truly breathtaking. You'll be lucky if you hire her for your event! You will NOT be disappointed!

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.
