The design for the photo was great and it matched the theme of the party perfectly. The photographer was on time. I liked getting a copy of all the pictures because I didn't get to see everyone take them. That was nice.

Kelli was great! She offered us advise on the best time of day to have our beach wedding, and arrived early on the day. We were so impressed with her energy and insight in finding the perfect places for us to pose. She also did a lot of candid shots. Kelli is very personable and very knowledgeable about lighting. Working with her was very easy, we were able to relax and enjoy the experience. The pics we have seen are awesome, and I know the rest will be as well! I highly recommend Kelli to anyone looking for a professional photographer.

This was our first time working with a professional photographer. Danielle was amazing from the very beginning. She offered creative ideas and took the time to lay every detail out for us. Our engagement shoot turned out amazing. Her turn around time is great. She doesn't make you wait forever. We are looking forward to getting our wedding photos back soon!

My family and I had a great experience with Sheryl. We had a huge family photo shoot due a very meaningful reunion- with a newborn, several Oct. birthday celebrants, and a family member that has been in remission with cancer for one year to the date. I was coming from out of state and I searched online for photographers. What caught my attention and what drew me to Sheryl was her great eye and great shots from her portfolio. The colors in her pictures were vivid and creative and wanted to have memorable family photo shoot. She was very professional, easy to contact and talk with. One family member has to be careful with large crowds due to health issues, and she worked well with the space we had. She was resourceful, efficient and accommodating. And she worked well with all the kids- which were 6 in total! Overall, I highly recommend Sheryl for her professionalism, her talent, and for her thoughtfulness.

I would first like to say, I NEVER write reviews but Jami is so great I truly felt like taking the time to share this. If you're looking for an awesome professional photographer that will take amazing photos then Jami is your girl. Not only was she easy to work with, responsive, timely and all around just lovely to deal with - she took the most beautiful photos. She blends right in with the crowd as though she's one of your friends capturing special moments. I loved working with her so much, I've already hired her again for another event. This was my first time using Thumbtack and it was the best because of Jami. I wish I could give her 6 stars for everything.

I worked with Amina Touray when shooting my album cover in May 2013, which ended up with a NAACP Image Nomination! We shot outside in Pasadena during 3-4 hours and I felt very comfortable and relaxed in her presence. Amina and her make up artist were on time, ready for me and listened to my concerns and specific needs regarding the make up and angles of the shooting my body. I was very impressed with her way of giving me instructions and feedback, which helped me get what I wanted-the perfect pic for an album cover. The only thing that could have been better, was the area to get my make up done at, but that's more of a convienience issue than a must. Amina is by far one of the most talented photographers I've worked with, and I've since done 2 more shoots with her, as well as purchased her services for 2 friends of mine, so that they could get to feel like a superstar for a day, like I did.

I hired Tony to take pictures for my son's 2nd birthday party. Working with Tony was super easy and he was very professional the entire time. After our initial contact, he reached out the day before to make sure that he had all the party information. His pictures were great to go through and he got some great shots of my son and his friends. The quality of the photos is excellent. He also told me that the pictures would be sent 2 days later and he actually did it! That was very impressive. I have worked with different photographers and when they say one thing, I often don't get my hopes up, but Tony did a great job and in the time frame he said he would. I would recommend him to anyone and now know who I can use in future years.

Thank you Mukaila for being such a great photographer for my son's first birthday! My guests thought that the pictures turned out well. Mukaila communicated well through email with specifics of our party. He also arrived on time and was able to take pictures of all the details of our party like I wanted. He was also able to be inconspicuous when he needed to be to get all the action pictures. Turn around time for the pictures was only a week. That is a lot quicker than a lot of other photographers that I have worked with before. If we ever have another event, I would definitely get a hold of Mukaila again.

I hired Michael to do a jewelry shoot for my retail business and unlike 6 other photographers that I interviewed, Michael easily understood my budget and what I wanted to accomplish with my pictures. Working with him was like working with a friend, he listened well and my pictures could not have turned out any better. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs a photo shoot done right in an enjoyable environment.

Forrest did a commercial job for and his attitude and work were fantastic. He made the subject feel relaxed, his energy was great and the shoot was professional and fun. End result, beautiful and artistic images. He put in substantially more time and effort that I could possibly have expected. I just hire him again, to shoot my personal headshots and portrait photos for my professional use. Forrest made me feel totally at ease and he made the shoot fun. Love the photos and hight recommend him. He is a pleasure to work with and a motivated and talented photographer. Great photos, responsive and fast results and super professional. I highly recommend him on all levels.

I had a great shoot with Philicia. I was very insecure at first, but she encouraged me to open up and own my talent. She made me comfortable to get the best light and angles of my yoga poses. She is a truly talented photographer. I hope everyone gets a chance to shoot with her and experience the best person to make the experienced and inexperienced look great!

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.
