Albert took my profile photos and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a profile photographer. He was very professional and very easy to work with. The photos far exceeded my expectation, and the price was relatively friendly.

(SPANISH BELOW) I want to highly recommend Nabor for your next photography project. I was contacted by my book editor asking for a head sot for my next novel. I live in Petaluma, CA and after looking at the rates of local photographers I tried this website. I obtained several bids and since I know very little about photography I asked my son for his opinion (he does photography for fun). After looking at the work of the people who sent bids he advised me that Nabor's work was the best "hands down". I negotiated with Nabor and he traveled to Petaluma to take the photos. We met early in the morning and when I got there he was already waiting for me. I was immediately impressed with his professional demeanor and flexibility. We walked around town and he knew exactly where the right background was. I knew then I was working with an artist. The love for his work is apparent in the photos he took. He got it right from the third photo but went on to take 191 photos!!!. The difficult part for me has been having to decide on just one photo. Nabor is definitely the best photographer I have ever worked with. There is something else beautiful about Nabor and that is that his first language is Spanish which is also my first language. It was truly a pleasurable experience to collaborate with someone passionate about his work. His photo will be a blessing to my novel. Thank you Nabor. (IN SPANISH) Quiero recomendar altamente Nabor para su próximo proyecto de fotografía. Mi editor de libros me pidió una fotografía reciente y profesional para mi próxima novela. Yo vivo en Petaluma, California, y después de mirar los precios de fotógrafos locales decidí probar este sitio web. Obtuve una serie de ofertas y puesto que sé muy poco acerca de la fotografía le pregunté a mi hijo su opinión (él hace la fotografía por diversión). Después de ver el trabajo de las personas que enviaron las propuestas mi hijo me aconsejó que el trabajo de Nabor era el mejor "sin comparación". Negocié con Nabor y viajó a Petaluma para tomar las fotos. Nos encontramos temprano en la mañana y cuando llegué ya me estaba esperando. Me impresionó inmediatamente su profesionalismo y su flexibilidad. Caminamos por el pueblo y él eligió el escenario perfecto para las fotos, sin durarlo mucho. Entonces supe que estaba trabajando con un artista. El amor por su trabajo es evidente en las fotos que tomó. Desde la tercera foto ya había cumplido con su encomienda y sobrepasado mi expectativa, pero siguió trabajando hasta tener ¡ 191 fotos !!!. La parte difícil para mí ha sido decidir en una sola foto. Nabor es sin duda el mejor fotógrafo con quien he trabajado. Hay algo todavía más bello de Nabor y es que su primer idioma es el español, que también es mi primera lengua. Fue realmente una experiencia agradable colaborar con alguien apasionado por su trabajo. Su foto será una bendición para mi novela. Gracias Nabor.

Clearlight Video & Photography captured the best of my wedding. Lawrence is professional, kind, outgoing, curious, thoughtful, and takes the initiative to get the perfect shot. He calmly and tactfully directed our guests into the frame to get all the compositions we asked for (and more). Lawrence has a natural ability to capture real emotion and personality from strangers, such that many of our best photos are his candids. Moreover, all of our guests complimented us on his professionalism, friendliness, and ability to get people in the shot to compose good images. Lawrence was easy to work with throughout the process. We negotiated a price easily, even though my situation was fairly unique. Lawrence also allowed me access to his RAW files, something many photographers refuse to do. When I was unable to transfer the files to my computer after the event, Lawrence made additional arrangements to ensure I received them. Lawrence even continued to work on some of my images after the event had completed and he had been paid in full, sending me his alterations gratis. In sum, I speak for all of my guests in saying we were incredibly impressed with Lawrence's work. Measured by quality, I can see the services of Clearlight Video & Photography easily costing in excess of $2,000, especially in the Bay Area. I consider Lawrence's photography services to be the best bargain of my wedding, and give him my highest recommendation.

Adam and Hanna were our Wedding Photographers in November 2016. Everything was very professional from the first time we met them, email communication in between, and on the day of our wedding. They were specific in asking us which photos we desired to be taken and were careful to take these and more! We were very impressed by the results and the price. Adam and Hanna provided us with incredible, professionally done photos that we will cherish for the rest of our lives. Everyone we show our photos to are amazed at the quality. There's no one else out there who charges a great, low price with high quality! I would definitely recommend them to anyone.

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!

Choosing Jennifer as our photographer for our wedding day was the best decision we made. Great communication since our first conversation. Our wedding day was chaotic! But she was there trying to do whatever she could to help us. The photos of our wedding beat our expectations, she was able to capture all the love and happiness of our wedding, everyone who saw our pictures loved them! Thank you Jen for being awesome and capturing such amazing images of the best day of our lives!

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!

IF HE IS AVAILABLE, BOOK RYAN. I worked with Ryan recently and it was a fantastic experience. I hired him to take photos of my cat, as well as some personal headshots. He was prompt, and I've never been so satisfied with a hired photographer. His photographs are crisp, and capture the subject brilliantly. Ryan is knowledgeable, and can explain exactly how his process works, which was important to me before I got headshots. I was happily surprised when he handed me an SD card with my photos on it right after he was finished shooting - he later sent me a google drive link with my pictures. I plan to hire Ryan again!

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.

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!

We hired Rich Jarvis to take senior portraits of my son after a couple of failed attempts by the schools choice. This very special time needed to be captured and remembered. He did a phenomenal job! Not only did he choose a great setting but he worked with my son on multiple clothing changes and props. The hardest part will be choosing which ones to display as each and every photos is amazing! He Was personable, professional, and made sure to get exactly what we wanted. From now on he is the only photographer for our family!

Thank you Avant-Garde for capturing the most important parts of our event!!! Not only was our engagement beautifully photographed, the little details that most photographers leave out were not missed. His pricing is very fair and affordable. I have him booked for my upcoming wedding in May as well.

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.
