We needed photos for the cover and interior of a regional magazine, which is published by the nation's largest networking entity for building and construction professionals. We had an extremely tight time frame for booking the photographer, taking the photos and receiving photo edits. Will Hartman with Desert Rose Photography was able to expedite our request at a very reasonable rate, and had no problem managing our very detailed instructions on the execution of the photo shoot. (Also, none of the publisher's representatives attended the photo shoot - Will executed everything on site based on guidance he received via telephone and email.) He arrived early to the location to scope out the best places for outdoor photography, and also worked hand-in-hand with the photo subjects to stage everyone (~25 people) in a variety of settings and locations. Needless to say, Will went above and beyond to deliver photos that were engaging, energetic, and dynamic. It was a real pleasure to work with him. We plan to use him again if the need arises, and would recommend him to anyone else looking for a professional, creative, capable photographer.

Brad was absolutely AMAZING! You can tell he genuinely loves what he does, which is my favorite thing about Brad. I was a bit nervous hiring a photographer that I hadn't officially met in person, especially since photography is one of the most important things for a wedding. Brad did not disappoint. He arrived 30 minutes early, bright eyed and ready to go. He paid SUCH close attention to detail, and was really into getting the perfect shot. He gives you little sneak peaks on his camera so you can see how amazing everything is turning out. He had plenty of equipment, was very creative with his shots, and quick to capture the moments. I knew this man was the truth when he sent over a few highlights the very next morning. I mean, who is so into what they do that they're still working on your stuff after shooting for 8 hours the day before? I can't think of anyone! He was super pleasant, and fun. I felt comfortable talking to him and asking him questions or for certain shots. He wasn't one of those snobby photographers that try to boss you around and don't listen to what you want. Anyway, I could go on and on about how amazing Brad is, but I think you get the picture. If you're nervous about hiring him, don't be. He's the best and you won't regret it!

Gifted my friend a maternity shoot through Nona's photography! Loved the outcome and the pictures came out fantastic. She had great ideas/props and delivered more than what was promised. Have never met Nona in person but she is extremely efficient and quick with scheduling appointments. Would surely recommend her to others!

Kelli was amazing! We hired her to shoot our son's senior photos. She was so flexible and accommodating from the scheduling aspect to the actual session. We did not want "traditional" style photos, so all I had to do was give her a general idea of what we were looking for and she stepped up to the challenge with gusto and creativity that exceeded our expectations. If anyone is looking for a photographer that knows what they're doing and hand holding nor directing is necessary, you'll be more than satisfied with Kelli's photography. On a side note, we just had our session and haven't gotten the photos yet, so I'll update my review regarding the quality of her product, but I have every confidence they will be spectacular!

John was flexible and understanding when I had to reschedule a few times. He's a nice guy. The lesson itself felt informal. John brought a power point and went through a few of the basics (white balance, aperture, shutter speed, ISO). I docked a star because the lesson itself is very pricey for what it's worth; I think I could get more bang for my buck at a group photography class. Also, I had another lesson right after John's, and I kept watching the clock and seeing how the precious minutes were ticking by with small talk and set up (I believe almost fifteen minutes went by before we actually dived in to the lesson itself).

I contacted the photographer the night before I desperately needed some pictures and I had a great session. I even got pictures back the night of the shoot and they were beautiful.

Working with Kenny was an absolute pleasure from start to finish. His extensive experience along with his professionalism made him stand out among the other offers. Kenny was highly flexible throughout the process with scheduling, has insight on all of the hidden gems in Costa Mesa. He is sure to have the exact type of scenery you are looking for! Overall I couldn't be happier with my experience, and I would definitely recommend him to anyone interested in both casual and professional photography shoots.

Amina was wonderful to work with. I am an attorney and needed headshots as well as website and social media photos, but wanted something different than the typical business photos. She worked well with the ideas I had in mind and offered suggestions based on my vision and her own personal experiences. As a former model, Amina was also helpful and clear in demonstrating poses and facial expressions, which was good for me since I do not get photographed regularly. If you are a legal or other business professional and want to step out of the box, I highly recommend putting your trust in Amina Touray Photography. Your vision will come to life.

Our wedding was back in April and Sean and his team did the photography and video. We live about 2 hours from Sean and the first time we met he was willing to drive out and meet with us with no obligation. We ended up meeting half way between us but the fact that Sean was willing to make the drive said a lot about him and his company. Before meeting Sean we had decided that we were going to only hire a videographer because we couldn't afford both and stay in budget and my wife wanted video of the ceremony over photos. However once we met with Sean he gave us a quote for both photography and videography and I have to say I was suprised Sean was willing to do both for such a reasonable price and just a bit more than what we were going to pay others for just video. Sean was always quick to answer any questions we had. The day of the wedding Sean and his team were quick to start shooting and capture all the moments of getting ready before heading to the church. After the ceremony we met at a park that we wanted to take photos and unfortunatley this was one of the windiest days. Sean and his team still worked with the wind and got as many shots as we could get in before we couldn't bare the cold wind. At the reception Sean and team were great and at one point we had an incident that put us behind schedule and had to quickly go through some of the moments and Sean was right there with us making sure to still capture them and stay on track. Overall Sean and his team were great and my wife and I were both more than satisfied with Sean and all he did the day of the wedding. We have even recomended Sean to my brother-in-law  who is planning his wedding. Now we're just waiting to see how the photos and video come out especially after that crazy wind we all had to deal with!

Mukaila was amazing in his photography. He met once before the actual event and answered all our questions patiently. He was straight forward with the price and timings. At the event he was on time and started taking the pictures of all the the guests and important stuff. He took pictures of the cake, decorations, cake cutting, all the games, food, etc. He was happy and personable during the whole event. I will recommend him to anyone who will ask for reference. He provided us all the pictures in high quality, within a week after the event.

We had a wonderful experience working with Amanda!! We was amazing!! She came to our house to do newborn/toddler photo shoot. My baby was 7 weeks old, and Amanda was very understanding to my nursing schedule and helpful with my other two kiddos. She was very professional, showing up on time and emailing our finished images as stated. She was easy to talk to about ideas I had, as well as bringing some creative and fun ideas of her own to the shoot. I really enjoyed working with her, and plan on using her for all our photography needs. I highly recommend using her!

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.
