I could not have asked for a better experience. My fiance was not thrilled with the idea of taking engagement photos, but Jessica and Bobby made us feel completely comfortable. We had such a good time and by the end of the session my fiance was really glad we did it. Jessica is very responsive and easy to get in contact with. Great value and quick turnaround time; we had our perfectly edited pictures within 2 days! Our engagement photos turned out so great that we will be hiring them to photograph our wedding! I highly recommend 1Man1Woman Designs for all of your photography needs. I can't wait to work with them again!

Palo is honestly the best wedding photographer and he makes breathtaking videos!!! First, we hired him for our engagement shoot and after we have seen the lovely pictures we had to book him for our wedding day. He is a true artist and made both of us feel very comfortable in front of camera. The images and video came out amazing and after I posted everything on my social media my friends instantly started begging me for his number. Palo, thanks to your amazing talent we have pictures that we will cherish for a lifetime. This review is for all the couples out there looking for the RIGHT photographer; Please do not look any further and book Palo today!!! I promise you won't be disappointed. He ROCKS⚡️

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.

Short version: Send him a message and just hire him! He really is that good! Long version: Searching around for a wedding photographer is pretty easy with the internet but there are a lot of choices out there. Some photographers are very good but were not in our budget. Some are priced affordably but their prices are too much considering the "quality" of their work. I wanted someone who had a more artistic background, easy to work with and was somewhat affordable. We were lucky enough to stumble onto Kent's work and surely thought he would be one of those photographers who would be nowhere near our price range. We were pleasantly surprised about how fair his pricing is considering he's one of those rare photographers who also shoots film. I really wouldn't be surprised that he will end up charging higher prices in the future. Not only is his work so beautiful, he definitely shows how much he cares about making our day as memorable as possible. He kept in contact with us throughout the whole process and took the time to get to know us. He really understands how to treat his clients and to tell our story. He doesn't just take pretty pictures and he really is passionate about his art. I would suggest you contact him and see if he is available for your day. While I admit, he did turn out to be slightly out of our price range, he was really worth it. He truly is a talent that will surely be more well known in the future and I think we were really fortunate to get him to capture our story. He was definitely the best wedding photographer that I've come across and I can't tell you how great it was to have him take our photos. Thanks so much Kent! I am still gushing every time I look at our photos. Love love love them.

Dia and Michael were amazing! Ours was a small intimate wedding and they were so accommodating and professional. I would highly recommend Meraz photography! They really made our day special, even when our teenage daughter started being "sassy" they handled it with poise and grace! I cannot say enough great things about Meraz photography! You won't regret hiring them for your event!

More than Outstanding! Very talented and professional photographer. Clay is a very driven and passionate man who works in a timely manner! He provides lots of creative ideas and has a special eye that somehow combines creative and professional, perfectly. Clay and his assistant came to shoot a commercial industry shoot. He was very time efficient, talented and most of all an enjoyable photographer to have around! 10 stars!

We got Susan to do cover our wedding. She was so accommodating and was one of the first to reply on my Thumbtack inquiry. Not only are her rates very competitive the quality of her work exceeds expectations! She and her fiance have an eye for detail and you can really see it when they work. They never rush you and it never felt like "oh lets get to over with". She always takes her time and looks for the best angles. On our first meeting my husband and I knew we booked the right photographer (this was roughly a month before our wedding! talk about short notice). I have nothing but good things to say about our experience. She even was gracious enough to say yes to some last minute location changes. Another thing was her patience! - We had to have all our vendors vetted since our wedding was inside a Naval base - and on such short notice she was able to accomplish all the nitty gritty paper work. It was quite a hassle on her end but was so nice about it. So thank you Suzy! Her bubbly and friendly demeanor would put you at ease, and it does help if you're getting married! lol. We highly recommend her I would give 6 stars if I could! :D we're so happy with the teaser shots she sent us we can't wait to see more photos.

We chose Wasio Photography for our wedding, and I am SO happy with that decision. Not only are Yaneck and Sasha an absolute pleasure to work with, but the pictures from our engagement, wedding, and even post-wedding sessions are phenomenal. The level of professionalism and dedication to their work is very obvious, and I highly recommend Wasio Photography. One of the few tangible things we got to keep from our wedding was the pictures, and I couldn't be happier with the images we received from Wasio.

It was an amazing experience working with Heena. She puts her heart into her work and it is visible in her projects/pictures. She is very professional and organized. She has a huge collection of props and backgrounds to match your theme. She has experience with babies and is super patient. She is willing to work that extra mile to make her customer happy and this what makes her different from any of other photographers. I will be hiring her again for my child’s first birthday and cake smashing. Thank you Heena for all your hard work.

Sarah is an incredible photographer! She found ways to highlight the spark between me and my partner, while capturing those beautiful little moments during our wedding. Sarah's easy going, enthusiastic and professional approach made taking engagement and wedding photos a breeze! We also really appreciated how she incorporated our personalities and preferences into the shoot. Her work is extremely creative, and when you see the end result you'd never guess how affordable it is. With Sarah, you're getting high quality photos from a true professional at a value. My partner and I highly recommend her to to anyone looking for uniquely stunning photos. Thank you so much for sharing your gift with us Sarah

Ashley was AMAZING!!! We had a large group of hungry kids and she was able to orchestrate and manage both families, and deliver top notch photographs. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking for great pics from a very personable photographer. We’ve already passed her name onto some local friends of ours.

Terathia did my wedding last year and my pics came out absolutely beautiful!!! She was very professional, yet still fun and encouraged great poses which came out gorgeous. Terathia sat down with me and my husband afterwards and went through all the pictures (over 800) so that we can have some enhanced. the originals were beautiful and the enhanced were stunning. i would recommend her for anyone especially special occasions. My videographer ruined my wedding ceremony film but because of her wonderful and professional job my pictures give the full story :)

Let me start by saying Valerie is a uniquely gifted photographer. Any special moments you want to capture and have available for years to come, look no further Valerie Lendvay Photography will do the job. We hired Valerie for our wedding this last October and it was the best decision yet (other than saying yes to my husband). We did our initial engagement shoot in March and the images were absolutely stunning, we knew at that point we had selected the right photographer. Fast forward 6 months and Valerie made sure all our questions were answered, logistics for first look were secured and everything was set for the big day. Not only is Valerie gifted in capturing the perfect moment, but she captures it in a way that is so real – no tricks here, she is just a gifted artist. Throughout the process she made us both feel comfortable, we definitely don’t consider ourselves as “naturals” in front of the camera but her professional presence and energy calmed us. Valerie also allowed us to enjoy our entire party which can oftentimes be overlooked with weddings. She pulled us apart for quick shots depending on lighting but it wasn’t longer than 5 minutes. This was super appreciated as we both wanted to spend every moment with friends and family, and Valerie was there to capture all the sweet moments. The photos came out ridiculously gorgeous, like take your breath gorgeous, and we couldn’t be happier! If you are looking for a wedding, family, or portrait photographer Valerie is the best and I HIGHLY recommended her. I cannot thank her enough, and I look forward to following her work and hiring her for future photography opportunities!

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.
