The photographer Spencer was great! Very personable, captured great moments, and the turnaround from the studio to getting our edited pictures back was extremely fast. Would highly recommend!

Nabor did a great job with my head shots. He provided suggestions before our session and specific direction during the session which I found very helpful. He asked how I was planning to use the photos and worked to understand my preferences. And he was very good about explaining the "why" behind his instructions. I am very pleased with the end result! Nabor sent me the finished photos almost immediately after our session was done.

I was looking for an affordable, no frills, family photographer-- I received 10 bids thru thumbtack, and Lawrence's bid was LESS than 1/3 the cost of the others-- PLUS he gave us the DVD with all the prints (most photographers will only allow you to order prints thru them). He scouted out a location, met us the day after Christmas, and had our photos ready on DVD the very next day. I highly recommend him for anyone looking for high quality, basic family photos.

I’m not sure I will be able to fully express what an incredible photographer Michael is. My sister found him through internet search for my (surprise) engagement in Napa. She had a few photographers in mind; however, she was most impressed by Michael’s professionalism, prompt response and flexibility…. and of course AMAZING photography portfolio – as are my fiancé and I! Firstly, he is a laid back person that exudes positive energy, which definitely helped my fiancé and I be more playful during the photo session. Since we were visitors, he chose the location, which was both beautiful and convenient for us. Michael was also flexible to change the session time, an absolute brilliant idea because the photos came out phenomenal – romantic, artistic, just perfect!! Michael, thank you so much for spending the afternoon with us and I look forward to have you as our wedding photographer, maternity and whatever wonderful, memorable events we may have in the near future. If you’ve read other review, you probably know that Michael Keel is the best but just in case you have second thoughts because you want your photos to be the absolute best, let me reassure you : get Michael, you won’t regret it !!

Sheila is not only a talented photographer but also very professional. She is very communicative and was a pleasure to work with. She was a joy to have around during the wedding day and was honestly a "fly on the wall" unlike other wedding photographers who are too "in it". The pictures she takes are beautiful and extremely well priced. I would not hesitate to work with her again. I actually look forward to it.

I highly recommend Patrick Power! I needed a professional portrait for a legal job application, and I hadn't had one taken in over 20 years. I wanted it to be professional, but also unique. I wasn't sure how to find a photographer, so I just put out a bid on thumbtack. Patrick responded very quickly and with a very reasonable price. I had resigned myself to just getting a studio portrait with a neutral background, but Patrick had the idea of meeting at City Hall to take the photo. I was very nervous and self-conscious about the process. I don't like having my picture taken and I am not very photogenic. It helped that City Hall was full of other photographers taking pictures of brides, grooms, and other people like me, so I didn't really stand out. I had a problem and ended up being pretty late to our meeting, but Patrick was very nice about it. I was sweating like crazy in my suit, but he did a good job of putting me at ease and letting me rest and cool down for a little bit white while he staked out spots to take the photo. He talked with me casually about what I was looking for in the photo, but we also made small talk about our lives and work, so that soon I felt very comfortable with him. As a result, I looked very natural in the photo. Patrick took a lot of shots, and several of them were quite good. I needed the work done on very short notice, including a print. I made the bid on a Sunday, we did the photo shoot on Monday, and I had the print by Tuesday morning. I love the photo, and my family and friends do too. Everyone agreed that not just my appearance, but also my personality comes through in the photo. I will definitely call Patrick again if I need another photo taken in the future!

Eric and his lighting assistant, Claire, did an AMAZING job at my recent wedding on February 17, 2018 at the Elks Lodge in South San Francisco! I HIGHLY recommend them to anyone in search of a local photographer. Amidst wedding planning and looking at expenses, my now husband and I, finally decided that we should have a photographer after all. We were nervous about prices, and after contacting many other photographers, we felt that it might be out of our desired budget. I came across Thumbtack on Facebook, and requested photography services. Eric contacted me within minutes, and quickly followed up via email and later phone. He was super easy to work with, creative, and really had a great vision for what we wanted captured on our special day. He also offered an incredibly reasonable price for all that he offers. He helped put our minds at ease, and assisted us with coming up with a tentative schedule that ended up working effortlessly. He is very great at giving direction when taking photos, and makes everyone feel comfortable. He is also great at working with other vendors, as he worked very well with our DJ to coordinate our evening's events. I couldn't be happier with the "Quick Peek" that he sent me a few days later, and am incredibly excited to see the rest! The photos are beautiful! Thank you so much, Eric and Claire for providing us with such wonderful memories! http://www.npointphoto.com/Clients/Current-Clients/Nicole-and-Rene-Wedding-Quick-Peek/

I've hired many photographers in the past for various events such as wedding, corporate parties and other events and William J Simpson trumps all of them by far! I knew I would enjoy his artistic take on photography and I love his eye for great moments and angles. Who knew it would take a first birthday party to finally find the right photographer! :) He was very punctual, responded quickly to my emails, and such a joy to work with during the event. Professional and personal at the same time. You won't regret hiring him for your next project or event. I know I'll be coming back to him for future events!

We hired Larry for our company event, he is very responsible, provides great work with excellent price. A lot of other photographers will try make extra by not providing a full service, with him all the planning and post editing are included. Larry is also great that when we were setting up the venue, he arrived early to help, as well as staying late to help us clean up. Great guy!

Before working with Nico, he was already one of my favorite photographers. His style always caught my eye, but working with him cemented his place in my heart! He is professional and hilarious. We had so much fun searching for impromptu spots and making jokes while shooting. The way Nico posed me during shoots was effortless and easy. He has very clear ideas, and explains how he wants the shot to look so the model has a clear idea of the vision. He was open to my ideas and I felt like we were creative equals. I cannot wait to shoot with him again. A wonderful experience!

Samerial photographed our department graduation and she was fantastic! Prior to the day of the event, she was very responsive to any questions and concerns I had. On the day of the event, she arrived on time and set up all the backdrops we had requested. She was extremely easy to work with and took beautiful pictures throughout the entire event. Thank you Samerial for capturing our joy and excitement on such a special day!

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.
