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!

Chris is fantastic! We had a horrible experience with our wedding photographer, and so were a little hesitant to get some family photos taken. Chris was the perfect choice. He was patient, professional, and took the time to get the shots we wanted. Pictures are adorable, I am so glad I have some nice ones of our family and newborn. I would use him again.

Nicholas Jones was our photographer for our wedding at Melody Cafe, San Francisco. We were on a Cable Car ride after the wedding ceremony. Nick was outstanding. Very quick with shots, very patient with the guests, and very inclusive. The bride and groom and the guests were all very happy with the photos provided by Nicholas Jones. We could recommend Big Smiles to all of our friends. Wish we had a video of the wedding event as well. Fortunately, some of our friends took videos. Thank you for creating a very memorable wedding for us, Big Smiles!

Nicholas did an amazing job capturing all of the special moments and details in our wedding with an articstic eye! Our friends and family are still raving about his work! He was also very accommodating and went above and beyond to film everything we asked for and more. Leading up to the wedding, he was always responsive immediately within the day if not hour and even after the wedding during the editing process he was like this! He has always been professional, polite, and friendly. He got along great with our photographer. He got our wedding video to us very quickly and edited everything beautifully while making sure to cleverly add in our special songs and props. If you are looking for someone professional, creative, friendly, accommodating, and affordable for your special occasions look no further!

I hired Jason to photograph a 50th wedding anniversary party and the process couldn’t have been easier. Jason was quick to send a quote/samples of his work and answer any questions I had. He showed up on time and was very professional. The party was Sunday afternoon and by Wednesday morning I had access to all the photos he took. Once I finish going through them and let him know which we choose he will do any touch-up necessary and get them back to me. His pricing was very reasonable, the pictures look great, and his service professional. I wasn’t sure if we should hire a photographer but am so glad we did; the photos will provide a wonderful memory of a wonderful celebration Thank you Jason!

Looking for a wedding photographer on line, my fiancé and I were drawn to the pictures taken by Lorinda Keller, the owner of 831images. Amazingly, she was available on our wedding day. All of her reviews raved her praises. All the reviews were spot on, Lorinda more than exceeded our high expectations. Due to prior changes in our wedding day schedule Lorinda accommodated us by splitting our day into two sessions so that we could get all the photo coverage we wanted but still stay within our budget. This allowed us to have photos of our ceremony and with our guests. We did not have to disappear and leave our guest to get our couple photos. Lorinda made a special trip to return later so that we could do our couple shots after our guests had left and during the ideal sunset lighting. Getting everything we wanted within our limited budget was an exceptional gift. Lorinda also surprised us with returning with printed pictures from the ceremony. She even presented us with a beautifully framed photo capturing our happy moment. Everyone was so shocked that she had a chance to do all of this for us. She was even professionally prompt on an extreme high traffic and no parking day in Carmel. From the second we met Lorinda we felt at ease. Her delightful personality was a joy to be around. My groom and I, were having a small intimate wedding due to our shyness about being the center of attention. We were expecting that having our wedding photos taken was something we would have to suffer through. Boy were we wrong. After two hours of taking photos on the beach we could not stop talking about how much fun we had with Lorinda. She made the experience an unexpectedly enjoyable time that we will always treasure. Lorinda had an amazing ability to give her subjects directions while still keeping a light hearted vibe to achieve the premium result. Not only did Lorinda put us and our guests at ease but she also had great energy around our dogs. Our two Belgian Malinois are very suspicious of new people, especially if they are holding objects like a camera. In order to have them part of our ceremony we thought we would have to put up with lots of barking. Lorinda was so terrific with our dogs that they never barked at her. She was also very gracious about maneuvering around the guest dogs in attendance. She went above and beyond in getting special shots with the dogs that lived at the venue for a special gift for us to give the home owners. It takes an exceptional talent for a stranger to put dogs at ease in order to take their photo. We highly recommend Lorinda for shots of your furry friends, in addition to all your professional photo needs. If you want to have fun while getting direction so you get the most flattering, unique and artistic photos then call Lorinda.

Hok and his assistant Ryan were amazing. They captured so many photos in so many different sets of scenery. I can't WAIT to see how they all came out. They showed me a few on their cameras and I nearly burst into tears! Even at the reception they continued capturing very artistic photos of our rings, and reception decor. They even recreated our ceremony setting (which had a gorgeous chandelier) and took photos of me and my husband at night in a complete different way than we were photographed during the actual ceremony. I can't stress enough how amazing Hok's artistic vision his. He was amazing! And I would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking to have a dedicated, fun-loving, hard working photographer on their wedding day!

Very high quality work! Kavya did a great job for our pre-wedding photoshoot. We shot at 2 locations in the golden hours (morning and evening). She helped us in choosing the locations and outfits, and brought some cool props as well! She was very prompt in replying to our queries, and gave us the final photographs in a timely way. The photos looked awesome. We used them at many places in our wedding (even had some put up poster-size at the venue!)

Paulina is a dream come true photographer. She is AMAZING and very talented. I couldn't ask for a better photographer. My wedding photos are beautiful & she captured so many wonderful details & moments. All of my guests raved about her great personality & how easy it was to take pictures. I met her through this app. She definitely listens & takes in all suggestions. I'm very camera shy, but with her it was easy for me to smile & be me. I can't thank her enough for capturing me & my husband, my family & friends in such beautiful lighting & making us look so wonderful. And Forever More Photography is worth every penny. You will not be disappointed. I am 100% satisfied.

Amanda was amazing! She photographed our small wedding in Carmel Valley this past Halloween. Before our event, I sat down with her and we discussed which types of shots I'd like her to capture: getting ready, walking down the aisle with my dad, the first kiss, family photos, dancing, photos around the gorgeous property, eating and celebrating with family. She took the time to edit each photo, individually, making each one the best they could be. I appreciate the time she took to make us feel comfortable, and when she took direction, as we are not models and didn't necessarily know how to stand/act. The moments she captured were perfect and we will cherish them forever. Thanks again Amanda!

Kyer is a fantastic photographer - his photos speak for themselves! I've had several photo shoots with him and each time we have a lot of fun and I always feel supported and at ease, and I'm always thrilled by the result. He is encouraging, skillful, playful, and intuitive. He took photos at my friend's wedding, also, and they turned out great - really stunning! Highly recommended!

Gregory was very helpful finding the time to be flexible with our schedule along with locating great locations to do our family session. We traveled from Iowa to Santa Cruz, Ca for our family vacation and wanted it to be memorable since all of our children and grand children were together along with celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary. Gregory took many beautiful photos along with some candid moments of the grandchildren. We look forward to having Gregory as our photographer again when we visit Santa Cruz again .

Lazaro helped me photoshoot a wedding last weekend and did an amazing job. He was focused, professional and attentive behind the lens and so much fun during all the bits in between. Group shots were super smooth and efficient, then individual shots were just a blast. Through out the course of day Lazaro continued to bring a thirst and enthusiasm for capturing the perfect moments!

Kate is the absolute best! My husband and I got married last summer at my Grandmother's house and my mom and I were freaked that we would have trouble finding picturesque backgrounds for all of our wedding shots. We let Kate know how nervous we were but she insisted it wouldn't be a problem. She was right! She made our old backyard-wedding look like a beautiful venue. Like most brides, my wedding day was a pretty big blur, but looking through my photos makes me feel like I am there all over again. Kate got all of the wonderful ceremony shots, group shots, and somehow even captured all of the tiny details that my family and I had worked so hard to put together- and she did it with a smile on her face. With a bridal party of 20 it can get overwhelming but Kate impressed all of us with her patience and ability to take charge of our rowdy bunch. Overall, my family and I loved working with Kate. Her love, dedication, and artistic flair show through in her work and I would recommend her to anyone in the search of a photographer.

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.
