Brad Zangwill photographed my mother's 75th surprise birthday party just two days ago. Before the party, we did a photo shoot of just the immediate family -- grandparents, siblings, grandchildren. It was a lot of fun. Within one hour, Brad managed to photograph us at 5 different locations on the grounds of the hotel where we were. He is super nice, very professional, and very quick! Once the party started, Brad was snapping photos at all the right moments, especially during emotional speeches. I can't wait to see what our photos look like! This is the first time we have such a large event -- 85 people -- and I was a little stressed out. I have to say that Brad's calm presence and efficient demeanor really helped put me at ease. No matter that the champagne was late and the mic didn't work, I knew that at least we would have great photos/great memories regardless. Thank you, Brad!

Mr. Sechrest stayed in constant contact with us prior to the shoot, inquired about hobbies and other pertinent info pertaining to interest for adding props. for the shoot. Mr. Sechrest also hooked us up with a contact for make up (she did an excellent job). He took us to an excellent location for the best lighting and moved the scheduled day for the shoot so the weather was optimal. Mr. Sechrest was patient with my daughter as she changed clothes and tried different poses, he was willing to cross some treacherous rocks near the water to get the best pics possible. His knowledge of the area for locations was outstanding, he took quite a few really good pictures and the price for his work is very reasonable. I highly recommend Mr. Sechrest for photo shoots and I plan on using his service next year for my other daughter's graduation pictures.

Our family needed a photo of all 12 of us that included 4 little boys under 4. Danielle worked great with the kids and offered lots of different groupings and poses. I was most impressed by how she could be in the middle of a group shot and pause for a great candid she saw out of the corner of her eye.

I was so impressed with Joanne. She responded quickly, followed through on her statements, met our very quick timelines, and most of all, she was fabulous with my 9 year old boy! He said "I'm having fun!" at the photo shoot.

The photo shoot went really well. Elizabeth was very patient with us while we tried to wrangle our 2 year old. I am happy with the photos we got. It would have been good to get more feedback on posing. I think some of the shots may have been better if we had been positioned differently.

What a wonderful experience! I came in from out of town and out of state and Heather met with me on the phone to go over my photography needs. She then met me promptly, at the noted time and location and helped me complete the photo shoot. The photos were delivered in a timely fashion and came out perfect. I'd highly recommend Heather for any job you may have, you will not regret it!

Hugh was great to work with! He communicated well, his photographs were wonderful, and he worked within my budget. It's difficult to coordinate a photo shoot from another state when you don't know the photographer or the client. Thanks Hugh for making this so easy! I would definitely recommend Hugh.

Elena did an amazing job for my really simple courthouse wedding. She made it look so beautiful! Not only did she show professionalism but she had so much patience during the waiting process which we appreciated so much. She gave us direction on how to pose and went above and beyond to get the perfect shot! All of my photos looked great even before editing and then the finished product came out beautifully. I highly recommend Elena she’s super talented and a great people person. She will make your special occasion memorable :)

Amazing photographer! Arrived early, stayed later, made sure we had a list of photos for our big day to keep us on track and took charge to make sure we captured all our desired photos! Most importantly he really made us feel comfortable on our big day, those awkward photo moments were non existent! Thank you so much for being wonderful!

Laura did an outstanding job during the photo shoot staying patient with my 17 month old son and orchestrated a beautiful experience for my parents-in-law. And the finished product was absolutely stunning! The photos made me cry! She captured beautiful moments of my family that we will treasure for a lifetime! We've already planned 2 more photo shoots with Laura and will continue to use her as our family photographer! I would HIGHLY recommend Laura Carrasco!

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.

I you are thinking of using Equinox photo, you will not be disappointed. Tricia absolutely surpassed both me and my wife's expectations. We absolutely loved every photo she took...from our engagement session to our big wedding day. Tricia will absolutely make you feel comfortable in front of a camera. She is 100% professional, but also makes the photo shoot fun! We loved her contagious positive energy, and unique style. Every one of our pictures came out perfect--like bridal magazine perfect! I was so shocked at how she was able to capture every moment so beautifully. On the day of the wedding, Tricia and her husband, LJ, made the stress of the day simply go away with their delightful personalities. Having great wedding photos was one of the most important things that we wanted. My wife was very particular about how she wanted our photos to look, but Tricia surpassed even my wife's high standards :) From the moment we met with Tricia, we know that she would be someone that we could connect with and be open with. We didn't realize at the time how important that would be. There are thousands of photographers out there, but Tricia truly is one in a million. Thank you, Tricia, for everything!

Alan's professionalism and friendliness left me with a strong sense of confidence in his abilities and comfort in his guidance as he created beautiful photo after beautiful photo. I'm camera shy, so having someone who can get me out of my shell, getting me to enjoy being photographed, is huge for me. If you need professional photos taken, for work, school, family memories, or even just for fun, look no further than Alan Crosthwaite!

Eric was the photographer for my military retirement on the Midway Museum. We could not have had a better experience! He showed up early, and stayed until we were sure we had all the pictures we could've wanted. He had excellent communication, and the pictures were fantastic! From the candid shots we didn't even know he was taking, to the group and posed shots were all perfect! He turned the pictures around quickly despite a busy schedule. I would definitely use Eric again for any photography I might need!

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.
