Will Hartman was amazing! Will and his wife, Michelle, designed my wedding photo booth template and it was beautiful. Will arrived early, set up everything and was wonderful during his entire time at my wedding. I couldn't have hired a better professional. The photo booth I had was the LED inflatable backdrop and it turned out great in pictures. The props were also fantastic. I feel like they really go above and beyond to do the best job and I am so grateful they did my wedding. Thanks so much for the wonderful job and for the scrapbook. It really was a lot of fun for everyone there and the moments you captured were priceless. I highly recommend hiring Desert Rose Photography for your wedding or other special event. They were perfect at my wedding!

There are so many things to share about our experience with Tom! Immediately upon meeting him, we felt completely at ease in his hands. He was open to our ideas, but came in with a plan and artistic vision to guide him through our wedding day. Always conscious of the time and schedule, he captured a great amount of shots, each its own masterpiece! I can't express my happiness in having Tom as our wedding photographer and wholeheartedly recommend him.

Brad was AMAZING during my Dec. 22nd, 2017 Wedding. I couldn’t be happier with our choice to go with him as our wedding photographer. I had multiple people graciously comment on how professional, punctual, and talented he is. Brad is a very talented photographer, and I wouldn’t hesitate to hire him again for other events or family photos in the future. I will post some photos to show his incredible artistry when I get my pictures back. Don’t think twice about it, HIRE BRAD!!!!! You’ll get a great value, quality, professional, and caring photographer! Thanks Brad for everything! You took so much pressure and stress off of us during our wedding!

We hired Joe as our photographer for our wedding. Joe has been awesome to work with. Despite all of our last minute changes- I mean total last minute changes! Joe was understanding and professional the entire time. We are so grateful to have found someone as fun and uplifting and supportive as Joe as our photographer. He was also prompt in responding and attended to all our needs and wishes. Couldn't have asked for a better professional and exceptional photographer for our special day! I would recommend Joe and his staff to anyone who wants to get the job done and done in a complete, professional, and timely manner. Thank you Joe for making our wedding day a day to remember for years to come!

For context, we hired Tom for our engagement shoot. We wanted two locations for our engagement pictures and our wedding photographer (hired long before we found Tom) was charging us an exorbitant amount to do the second location. That's why we turned to Thumbtack--to find something more reasonably priced. I wasn't sure what to expect, especially given the large difference in prices between our original wedding photographer and Tom. But, my wife and I decided to give it a shot, and we couldn't be more happier with what we got. Tom was awesome and very professional. We wanted a sunrise shoot which meant we would have to get to the site at 6:30 AM. Tom was there before we were!!! Things only went smoothly from there. He knew exactly what he was doing and helped guide us through the shoot (because obviously, we had no idea what we were doing). He went above and beyond with respect to service and his pictures were amazing--we absolutely loved the quality and the timeliness with which he delivered them to us. In fact, we liked him so much, we booked him to do a second event (our rehearsal dinner). Tom was awesome and you can't go wrong hiring him. We would do it again in a second.

We were thrilled to have Emily capturing the best moments of our New York city hall wedding shoot. While her technical expertise and eye for aesthetics are evident in her body of work, we were more impressed with her sensitivity and personal interactions which made us feel very comfortable in the 3 hours we spent together. Emily is patient, understanding and accomodating and I would strongly recommend her for those looking for a more intimate event or wedding photoshoot.

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.

Sheryl was the photographer at our wedding, and I cannot say enough about the amazing job she did. Everything from her communication to her professionalism was outstanding. She made everyone at the wedding feel comfortable and at ease. I was so impressed with the little things she did like making sure my dad has his boutonniere on before the ceremony and capturing the moments that I would never have thought of. Above all if you want a photographer to be creative and use her artistic skills to create breathtaking results, then Sheryl is the one!

Nicole and her husband photographed our wedding and we couldn't be happier! They are so nice and professional. They listened to what type of photos we wanted and took a wide variety of pictures. They captured the moments perfectly and really took it to the next level with the posed photos I asked them for that we took in a separate location from the ceremony and reception itself. One of the most important things to me was to get some pictures that were very unique and highly stylized (not typical wedding photos). They really came through for us and delivered exactly what I wanted as well as taking fantastic wedding pictures that tell the whole story of our day from start to finish. The last thing I'd like to say about them is that they were so great to work with. During all the commotion and stress leading up to and during the day itself, it was important to me to work with people who are truly nice people as well as talented at what they do. 100% professional. I would highly recommend them!!

I hired Dino for my small wedding ceremony. He arrived the wedding place ever earlier than us. Although the ceremony only took 20 minutes, Dino made my time worthy. He is conscientious and took plenty of my wedding pictures. After the ceremony, he found beautiful street scenes for us to have more photos. Dino knows various of poses that looks nice on photos.

Sean has been great from the very beginning. He did our Engagement Shoot and our Wedding. Our engagement photos were amazing and from what I have seen so far, the wedding pictures are just as equally amazing. I am really excited to see what he puts together for our video. We really loved working with him and his crew. They were very easy going and worked hard to get all of the shots that I had wanted. I have already recommended him to a few of my friends. Also, he was very affordable and I know for me personally, I was on a tight budget for the wedding, and couldn't afford the rates that most photographer/videographers charge. I really got lucky when I found him. Thank you Sean for everything! And I can't wait to see the rest! :) Sabrina

June and Frances are amazing. They have a full-stack team to provide EVERYTHING. My now wife and I hired them as our engagement and wedding photographers, DJ, flowers and videographers. They are professional and talented. We are still getting compliments on our engagement pictures and wedding video! We can't wait to see our wedding pics. I highly recommend this team. They won't disappoint.

Yanira took amazing pictures for our wedding. Our wedding was in Long Beach and she captured every moment. The best part was when we made it on time for the sunset and great moments. Yanira thought of everything and she is very professional.

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.
