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.

I hired SuStudios for photobooth service for my wedding back in early May, and the service provided by Susan and David were much beyond expectations! They accommodated my request to move the photobooth from the cocktail hour location to the reception reception at the venue, and provided SO much quality props that kept our guests talking even weeks after our wedding. Susan and David were such a sweet husband n' wife team, and I hope you'll be lucky enough to hire them to make your day special!

My first experience with Kenny was an email exchange. The exchange was friendly, energetic and positive and set the tenor and tone for the entire experience. A phone conversation ensued, and that was again positive and friendly and upbeat. In fact, Kenny is not only a professional, but he’s one who is enthusiastic about his chosen métier. I mentioned that I’m a serious amateur photographer and he immediately jumped at the chance to talk about his passion. In other words, Kenny is not only interested in the business end of things but truly enjoys his work and talking about it. I immediately felt comfortable with him. Kenny was the first of several photographers from Thumbtack that were on my list of contacts. But, as a result of the very positive conversation I had with him, I decided to hire him right then and there. The day of the photo session Kenny was ready to go on time. He welcomed me warmly into his studio and we proceeded to create some very nice looking professional head shots and 3/4 shots. Probably because Kenny remembered talking to me about my interest in photography, he explained things as he went along such as how and why he was lighting his subject in a certain way. He loves “talking shop” and I think this is a sign of someone dedicated to his art. I think this kind of individual makes the best professional. And the proof is borne out of the results. Kenny created some very nice photos about which I’ve already received numerous compliments and enthusiastic praise from family, friends and colleagues alike. I would definitely hire Kenny again. And… I still enjoy talking to him about photography. We still exchange emails and he’s still friendly and genuine. I can highly recommend Kenny to you for your professional photo needs.

Sean Te and his co-photographer worked my wedding and also did my engagement session. They were great and very professional they arrived early to get pictures of the bridesmaids getting their makeup and hair as well as other photos that are taken at the beginning of a wedding. They went above and beyond to make sure they got all the shots I asked for. One of them even knew how to lace up a corset and bustle a dress. Which came in handy when my bridesmaids forgot how to do it. If you are looking for a great photographer who is willing to go the extra mile to make sure your day is photographed with great detail this is your guy! Thank you for everything and we will definitely use your services again for our year anniversary pictures.

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.

Hugh was amazing to work with from prepping for the event until after the event. He was professional, friendly and super helpful. He was able to bring along a friend who was equally as great. The guests at the event loved both of them and inquired about who the photographers were after the event! And of course we were more than happy with the quality of the photos! Great work!!

First of all Pao i want to say thank you for making us happy. Pao is very professional when it comes to his job his always on time. He did a couple shoot one for my engagement and the other one is for my wedding. its not often that you find a VERY GOOD/ EXCELLENT photographer/videographer and at same time HONEST people. my husband and i are so busy i never know that my husband already pay them and i give them another envelope the payment and a gift. they already leave the place but Pao and his partner came back telling us. that i give them to much money. My family and my visitors in my wedding are glad to hear that in this crazy world good people are still exists. Pao and his partner are not just very good at their job they are honest too. Fyi our engagement photos are extremely pleased....will update about the photos of our wedding soon. To all the couples planning for the best wedding photographer/videographer i recommend this person as soon as he start holding his camera he cant stop!!! The best!!!!

As a bride on budget wedding photography can be extremely overwhelming. We are a simple couple who was interested in natural light photography to capture our special day. Our theme was modern vintage with beachy vibes and Olga nailed it from the very beginning. from the first glance of her website we could tell that she was more than capable of shooting the natural romantic look we were looking for. She was willing to work within our budget and came very well prepared to our first (and only) meeting. Her package included a complimentary engagement shoot, which was wonderful because we didn't have a chance to get one done. We wanted to include our energetic pup in the photo shoot as well, since pets were not allowed oat our wedding venue. She was totally open to the idea and did an AMAZING job capturing our little love. She arrived on time and ready to rock! It was a sunset shoot so she was focused on getting us in position for the perfect angles and had no problem kindly asking folks to to step aside so we can have the proper backdrops. It took her little under an hour to get all the shots we requested and they turned out absolutely adorable. We felt so comfortable and in very good hands for the big day. On the day of, she arrived to our hotel early and had already begun taking pics. She worked seamlessly with our videographer and maneuvered through our busy bridal with ease to get all the necessary getting ready shots. The Groom's suite was downstairs from ours so it was a breeze for her to get his pre-ceremony shots as well. With such a large wedding party (23 in total!) Olga did a great job identifying and highlighting all the VIPs such as the MOH, BM, grandparents and parents, while documenting all the personality of our big bunch. She even kindly offered to escort me and a few of bridesmaids to the venue. Let's just say it was the most memorable ride of life! Olga is a true professional and will do anything in her power to make sure her clients are taken care of and this was no exception. The wedding photos turned out absolutely amazing! My only wish there with two of her, to capture twice the memories. Oh, it was also extremely windy for a summer day. She did a fantastic job of using the elements to her advantage and creating some truly romantic shots. We did go an hour over schedule and Olga had no problem staying later to make sure she covered all the main events of the night. She even sent us a few pics to cherish while on our honeymoon. I can't thank her enough for working with us and recommend her 100%.

Awesome! We all know pictures are one of the most important parts of the wedding. What an amazing crew this guy has. I had them for the entire big day. He did all of the getting ready shots. Even had a drone to get some amazing air photos. The wedding was flawless. Russ even put together a timeline for me because I was so overwhelmed. They got every shot I could have possibly asked for! They were extremely professional and very helpful. I honestly can not say enough good things about this team. Customer service is huge to me. They went beyond exceptional customer care. You will be happy you chose them! Thanks again for everything! You made our day a little bit better by being a part of it! -Marissa

I came across LilyLove 5 years ago when I was on the market for a wedding photographer. She was a new, emerging artist however her work has never faltered. Although she didn't shoot my wedding ( emergency cancellation on my part) she did deliver on the first of many family and lifestyle sessions. She has helped us document the growth and expansion of my family. Each time tastefully, perfectly edited and executed. She's not just a point and shoot type person. She objective, will stop to fix your hair or get tasteful in the moment shots. Each second she captures is one you can definitely relive and get lost in. Each handmade set up and holiday session is definitely one of a kind and adds the element of living a fairy tale. Her talent is an art and so much larger than just wedding coverage, it's life as you would love to remember it through loving and fun eyes. It's an honor and privilege to be her client.

I selected Hide to photograph my classic Mercedes. My decision was not based on his bid price, which was slightly higher than the other bidders. My feeling is that the price is secondary to the project. I selected Hide because of his attitude toward my project; he addressed my specific need. Other bidders sent the standard reply, telling me that they are excellent wedding and baby photographers, etc. I felt that Hide was the only bidder who actually took the time to read my comments and consider my project as special. At the shoot, he exhibited every characteristic that I needed to make my project work. He was patient, took direction and suggestions with enthusiasm, and added his own creativity and technical experience to bring my project to a very successful conclusion. Hide is a delightful person and an excellent photographer. I will definitely hire him again in the future.

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.
