I interviewed about 15 photographers to try to find the perfect one and I finally did! I had a lot of specific requests that I wanted photos and video footage of many special things so that my video can turn out the way I want it to and give a specific story,both Ruben and Omar jumped in no problem! They were always around me whenever I needed and it was fast and easy to get pictures with everyone and not waste time. I can not wait to are the final product! So far the preview pictures I have got have had emotion and been beautiful! Here is a picture of my husband and dad and probably one of my favorite photos ever now! I really suggest using these guys... I have already had 3 friends from the wedding ask for their contact information! They won't disappoint!

Doug and Melinda went above and beyond for my wedding. It rained on my wedding day but that didn't stop our photographers from taking beautiful rain shots, it actually added to the magic! We originally wanted photos at the Palace of Fine Arts but that wouldn't have worked out with the rain, so we came up with a plan B after the wedding ceremony and Doug was flexible with the sudden change. Later that day, my mother and my aunt could not figure out how to pin my bustle, Melinda stepped in like a pro and saved the day! Not only are they great photographers but they really helped us keep the flow of the wedding. We saw a preview of our wedding photo gallery and it was beautiful, we cannot wait to see all of the photos and create our album. We especially loved the candid shots during the wedding ceremony as well as the rain shots.

Allan is of the best photographers I have ever worked with. His punctuality, friendly demeanor, faithfulness, and passion for capturing memories that will last a lifetime are his best qualities in business. He has all the right equipment, talent, and skill, and comes at a great price! I used him for my graduation photos and now use one of his photos for my linked in profile picture. He's an awesome guy and I'm really glad I hired him!

Nic came ahead of time on the day of the event. He coordinated well with the photographer. We hired him for the raw footage of the event and highlights video. He was very responsive over email, and provided raw footage of the event within a week. Highlight video contained well selected scenes.

Meeta is a brilliant photographer and can really bring your photos to life. I hired Meeta for an event, after seeing her work on her website. From being a photo-journalist for one of the finest newspapers and having studied photography, she sees and captures the moments in a different perspective that we cannot see. She was punctual, responsive and gave me the edited pictures within a week after my event. My previous experience in dealing with other professional photographers has not been so good, where I had to wait more than a month before I could get my hands on the photos. I highly recommend Meeta and will hire her again for any of my photography needs in the future.

They were AWESOME! They brought on a third photographer to help when they realized the size of the wedding events. They made suggestions where they knew better with their expertise and it worked out better than perfect - I.e. when the best time to take family photos. They were on time and ready to go with very creative pictures. I haven’t received my photos or video yet (it’s onky been 1 month today) but I have no doubt they will blow me away. THANK YOU!!!

5 stars on everything! Michael was incredibly responsive and stayed in wonderful contact before, during and after our event. He was professional and enthusiastic. He shot so many photos of our event and the return time on the project was super quick. His photos were extremely high quality and we hope to have him back for more shoots!

Hok was such a dream to work with for both our engagement and wedding photos. He is very responsive, kind, and flexible, so communication throughout the planning process was a breeze. Good communication was really important to us because we were planning our wedding from across the country! Hok also worked with our budget and we were able to get a package that was reasonably priced (and a great deal compared with other Bay Area photographers). Most importantly, Hok is a great person and his caring and thoughtfulness shows! Being someone who doesn't like photos taken of herself, I found Hok's warmth, humor, and genuine, down to earth nature very comforting and disarming. He really put us at ease. We feel so lucky to have found Hok and we highly recommend him to anyone looking to capture special moments!!

We had Swaraj to photograph our daughters First birthday. He did an amazing job on that. This was my experience with Swaraj. - Booking him for the event was an easy process. Finding best photographers at the rate he provides is tough. - On the day of the event, he came 15-20 mins before start of the event and setup all his items to capture the moments. He setup all his light fixtures to make sure lights are adjusted properly - Our event lasted couple of hours. He was so patient with all our guests and took lot of photos. - He stayed till the end of the event , suggested lot of family poses and captured those. - When comes to processing, it was so quick and when we got the album from him, we were so happy to see the outcome of those photos. So glad we had made the right choice by choosing him to capture our daughters special moments. Thanks Swaraj for the memories. I would definitely hire him again for all my upcoming events. I would highly recommend him for any events.

Leslie made my life easier knowing she was taking care of the fantastic photos for me during our family event. She took fun and interactive photos and videos (I asked Leslie to do a video as I wanted a short clip too ~ that was simply the best!) I appreciate all she does and did! Our friends and family had great comments on her during the party and the photos she captured really shined through! Thank YOU!

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!

STOP reading this review and hire Paulina immediately! She is so professional, responsive, punctual, and technically great that it is hard to believe that she could be so warm, personable, and reassuring too! From the moment we met Paulina, we knew we were going to hire her. Her bubbly personality and enthusiasm made us even more excited for our own event. On the day of our wedding, she was perfectly on time and directed us through a beautiful and fun "first look." Sometimes it feels awkward to have a photographer taking pictures through an event, but Paulina integrated so well into the crowd that everyone thought that she was one of our friends...at the end of the evening no one wanted her to go! I'm sure that there are many good photographers out there for hire, but if you want someone truly special, who will be part of your team, and make your special day even more special, then look no further. She is truly one of a kind. Thank you Paulina!!!

Ms. Basco made extra time to meet with us prior to the event to ask questions and hear preferences for the shoot. During the event, she subtly moved through the crowd and captured a lot of great candid shots. For posed photos, she showed excellent patience with a LOT of people, and took it in stride when guests asked her to take pictures with their phones (even though they definitely should not have bothered her with that when there were 70 people standing around). We were pleased with her eagerness to please her clients. Her photos are lovely.

I cant say enough about Nazanin and her talented eye as a photographer. She truly is an artist. I had my pregnancy and baby shower photo shoot with her and I felt so comfortable with her. I was so happy with my photos and made me confident to ask her for taking pictures of my newborn. She perfectly captured amazing pictures of my baby and made those moment unforgettable for us. I wish she could stay in Tucson and captures all the special moments of my family!

Wayne was great! He met us on a Saturday. Gave us a timeline and finished even before his estimate. We are very happy we had him restore this very old family photograph from the 1920's that was damaged. Definitely recommend!

After speaking with a few local photographers, Chris not only had the cleanest/well working website but he also left the best impression over the phone. Very personable and easy to communicate with. He was also able to fit me in the next day (Friday) to do my business portraits. Doing a photo shoot like this was way out of my comfort zone however, Chris made it fun and easy. Not only that but he had the proofs for me to review within a few hours of the end of our session. Not to my surprise the quality of the pictures, lighting and setting were top notch. I will recommend GoodEye Photogrpahy whenever possible and will continue to work with Chris moving forward. 5 stars and nothing less

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.
