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!

Nona is Picasso with a camera! She has a great eye for locations and captured the most beautiful posed and natural moments of me and my twins daughters. You can tell that she loves what she does and is such a friendly and loving photographer. I felt very comfortable around her and loved her guidance at times when I wasn't sure what I should do. I recommend Nona Photography to all my friends and family. I can't wait for her to take pictures of my next life events!

Joe Chung Photography (JCP) photographed our recent event and family gathering. From the initial introduction via Thumbtack and engagement, Joe was prepared and professional. Everything moved very easily and communicating with Joe was simple and hassle free. Leading up to the day of the event JCP was able to work with us as our needs unexpectedly changed. We were presented with a few unfortunate, last minute, vendor changes. Last minute vendor changes can be crisis-worthy. Lucky for us, JCP was adept at managing crisis-worthy scenarios and was able to adjust and calmly eliminate the potential crisis from the loss of another vendor. JCP agreed to travel to additional locations and work with us as our itinerary changed slightly. The day of the event, Joe and his team went above and beyond to capture all of our moments. We were blown away by the effort JCP took. During a carriage ride they followed on foot to capture the family. Our nieces really felt as if they were VIP. It was delightful to see the look on their faces when JCP was there to take their photos along the way. JCP was not only professional and knowledgeable, but they were fun. They brought a lot of enjoyment to our event. We feel very fortunate to have found JCP on Thumbtack and would highly recommend JCP to anyone looking for photography services. Thank you Joe Chung Photography!

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).

Project was real estate listing photography of two vacant properties in the Inland Empire. Darren was quick-to-respond, scheduled the shoot for the next day, was early to the site and promised prompt return of the photos, which he did. Both properties are vacant which can be a bit of a challenge to properly shoot but he did a great job. One property instantly saw activity with a modest price reduction and the newly minted photos. I'll be using him again in the future.

Sheryl was amazing from the very beginning. Since I was planning my wedding long distance I was unable to meet her until the day before. She was organized and professional. We were able to coordinate everything over the phone. Sheryl made sure to keep in touch, asking how the planning was going. That was only the beginning though. Sheryl's photography was amazing! We have the most beautiful photos to remember our wedding day by because of her. She was able to capture every angle and every moment. I really appreciate the quality work that she did. The album and access we were given to all the photos she took was incredible. Overall, we received 5 star service!

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.

There is multiple DJs out there, but by far this one is the best professional courteous and what's best of all he has a large selection of genre to choose from tailored for the themed event. Very tech savvy with an array of sources to choose from. He included lighting for us, photography and live entertainment, that's incredible. It is also worth noting he had an innovative online means to browse through to select music and preview photos. We were absolutely satisfied and we use him often because of our hectic,demanding and diversified lifestyle.

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!

Ron is amazing at what he does! He did deliver the results we wanted and he added his creative twist that made us standout and that is what we were looking for. We are now excited to have Ron do our commercial work moving forward. He was able to take our job immediately and delivered fast results and with his printing services we have now found a one stop shop for our creative needs. We recommend Ron to anyone needing commercial photography. His studio is great to!

Wayne is a very talented photographer and an amazing person. It was such an honor to have him to be part of our big day! All our families and friends were amazed by the wedding pictures, much more beautiful than we ever expected. We received all the GREAT quality wedding pictures just in 1-2 days right after our wedding. He even created a wonderful video clip that captured and condensed everything from our wedding day in a 1:30 minute video, and everyone just adores the video clip. He captured so many little details and unexpected moments. He was so calm, patient, and very friendly to everyone at the wedding. Wayne was with us before, during, and after the ceremony and stayed until after our first dance. He captured all the family and individual portraits. His personality, photography, and professional skills is much appreciated! We would highly recommend to have him as your photographer for your important occasions! He is a brilliant photographer and nicest man!

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.
