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.

Pavol is a lifesaver! I need an event photographer last minute (like within 3 hours of posting on here) and Pavol was not only quick in response but was onsite with me walking the property within 2 hours. He was polite, professional, and very accommodating to our photography needs. I would give him my highest recommendation for your events! I look forward to using his work in my upcoming publications and on social media. Thank you Pavol and well done! I look forward to working with you again on any future San Diego projects!

My fiance and I hired Chasing Light to do our photo and video for our wedding. Their pricing was perfect for what we were looking for and we were very excited to be getting both photo and video by the same team. We recently had our engagement photos and cannot begin to explain how happy we are to have chosen them. Our photographer, Russ, was very flexible with the date and even helped us find the perfect location. He definitely listened to what we had in mind and was even ok with my fiance wearing his sunglasses for some of the shots. Russ was very easy to work with and had 2 preview images back to me within the next hour! On top of that, he had the rest of our images ready the next day and they are everything we hoped for and more! I have friends who had to wait weeks to get their engagement photos back. Needless to say, we are obsessed with our engagement photos and CANNOT wait to see how our wedding photos and video turn out.

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

Outstanding, absolutely phenomenal photography! Sasha & Yanek photographed my engagement session and wedding and the photos well exceeded my expectations. They make you feel so comfortable with them that you're so naturally relaxed and look amazing in your photos. I had the opportunity to work with Magdalena for a boudoir session before the wedding and she was amazing too! You don't get better than Wasio when it comes to photography. I will forever use them for my formal photo sessions. I love these guys! I am so honored to have had them as my photographers last year.

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!

I met Debra through a mutual friend and I could not have been any more pleased than I was with her as my wedding photographer. She's very professional and has a gift for creating amazing photos. Her creativity shines through each photo she captures. I have already recommended her to all my friends who are planning their weddings. Her work is artwork.

Maria went beyond helping us capture a very special moment in our lives, she helped pick the exact spot, the manner in which it happened and brought the champagne for afterwards. My birthday surprise to my girlfriend was a trip to San Diego. Unbeknownst to her I was planning my wedding proposal for that trip. We had never been to San Diego before and Maria went out of her way to help choose the best location for the proposal (A particular spot on Sunset Cliffs). I wanted to capture this moment with a professional photographer but I also wanted it to be a surprise. Maria was willing to act as if she was at the spot taking photos to build her own portfolio and if we were willing to be captured in a few. After some initial pictures she had my now fiancé turn toward the water where I was able to get down on my knee and Maria prompted her to turn back around. It was perfect!! In addition to all that she went the extra mile and bought a bottle of champagne (with her own money) for afterward with cups that said 'She Said...' 'Yes'. That was never in the plan she just did it! The pictures turned out amazing. My fiancé was(is) in shock and was very surprised. Couldn't have asked for a better result. So in conclusion if you want a engagement planner, actress, professional photographer, and all around great person I highly recommend Maria Lozano.

Jamie was on time and very professional. We used him for an office photo shoot and he blended in seamlessly. We were able to work as we normally do and he was just a fly on the wall documenting our everyday work life. I would definitely recommend Voltage Digital for photography!

Puneet S Ghai photography did an unbelievably amazing job with our family photo shoot! The ease he set for each scene showed through in each and every one of our photos. He was kind, professional, punctual, creative and FUN! I can’t stress enough how nice it was to have such a fun experience taking these photos. There were no awkward moments! He made my entire family very comfortable. Especially my one year old daughter. She LOVED Puneet. Which really helped with getting great shots! She was constantly looking towards him and smiling, it was incredibly sweet! Puneet took so many photos of our family and had them beautifully edited and returned to us within 5 days! I am beyond impressed with his skill level on all accounts and highly recommend him to anyone!

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!

At the time she was based in South Carolina while we were in Virginia.l, and it was imperative that we sought out for her services for our big day. She’s done everything from our engagement photos, wedding, and maternity photos. She is our family photographer, and we appreciate her and her services.

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.
