Lawrence Gerald always got back to me quickly. Our 50th wedding anniversary celebration took place at Embassy Suites, Milpitas, CA His photos were very clear, and he was easy to work with. He also added special effects to some of the unique photos. He was at the event from 10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. His fee was reasonable for the quality of work and number of pictures he took. I would definitely recommend Larry as a photographer for any event.

Brian photographed my daughter's 3rd birthday party. We had about 55 people in our backyard and he captured incredible images of the children, adults, food, flowers, decor and some cute family group pictures as well. The lighting in the images is perfect. I have been looking for a good event photographer and I found him! He is also a super nice guy and great with kids! I will definitely be hiring him again for our next party!

Amazing time with Michael Keel. His quality and work ethic are second to none. Comparable price to most high quality photographers. Professional in all the right sense. We would book him for any other event should we need professional photography done. Legit, thanks Michael.

Jeff was a true professional, arrived on time, dressed appropriately, was unobtrusive and polite. He checked in with me throughout the gig to determine where and who from our conference event needed to be captured on film. The resulting photographs were wonderful, a fabulous gallery of shots to choose from - relaxed and candid conversations, complimentary portraits of speakers and guests, beautifully focused. An extremely fast turnaround (less than 12 hours!) I'd highly recommend Jeff if you're looking for a professional event photographer. I feel lucky to have found him here on thumbtack.

Adam and Hanna are the best photographers we ever had! They did an outstanding job during our wedding! They were there taking all the pictures we wanted but they never got in the way. They are a wonderful married couple and so friendly and easy to work with and very professional at the same time. The quality of their photographs is of the highest order! We are so happy we chose them. We give Adam and Hanna our highest recommendation for your wedding or for any major event you have.

Eric and Claire were a delight to have as our photographers. Each time we spoke with Eric, he came prepared with ideas on locations. Before the actual day, he scouted out additional locations. We liked his work which is why we picked him. But, our wedding was on Saturday and we've already seen some samples, and we love, love what we've seen so far. Eric is professional, accommodating and his passion for his work is apparent. Even our guests enjoyed his presence at the wedding. We couldn't be happier with our experience of working with him.

Usman took pictures for us at our SF City Hall Civil Ceremony and we couldn't be happier with how everything turned out. This was my first time using Thumbtack and I wasn't sure of the process or exactly what to expect, but was extremely pleased with the outcome and how easy it was. As a photographer, Usman was truly a pleasure to work with - he knew the City Hall civil ceremony process and made everything easy for us and a lot of fun. We loved his professional yet laid back style and it made us feel very comfortable and at ease in front of the camera (something that we weren't used to). From getting the quote, arranging details, payment, etc. everything was efficient and fast, but also very well done. He knew the best spots in and around City Hall for pictures - and I couldn't believe how many we were able to take in just an hour with him. We received the retouched photos very quickly (in less than a week!) via Dropbox and absolutely LOVE them. He did an amazing job! We would definitely work with Usman again and will certainly recommend him to our friends and family. Thank you Usman for capturing our day so perfectly! It was a pleasure to have you be a part of it. Thank you!

Amazing DJ.! We hired him for our wedding this past month. He kept in contact with us until our event to make sure the music was what we wanted & timing would be perfect. He showed up early to set up his equipment & to make sure to do a sound check. My wife & I have nothing to complain about. We would definitely hire him again. Our guests loved him. Very professional DJ. You will not be disappointed. He is very dedicated to music & making sure his audience have an amazing time. Once again, thank you Dave for everything!

I've been modeling for about a year now, and the only reason I was even able to get my foot in the door a fraction of the way was because of Nico. He was the first person I ever shot with. Since that time we have worked together numerous other times. My favorite thing about Nico, besides his obviously gorgeous photographs, is how comfortable he makes me feel when we shoot. I love pushing the boundaries of my art and being able to work with Nico is the only way I'm able to do that. Nico loves what he does and it shows 100% of the way through his work. He cares about making me, and every other model he's worked with I have no doubt, feel respected. This is a huge problem in the industry, but photographers like Nico are hopefully the forefront of a big change that needs to happen. I use so many photo's that Nico has taken of me in my portfolio, and my agent loves them .

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.

Mauricio was amazing to work with. He arrived early and stayed the entire time throughout the ceremony and reception. He partnered very well with our photographer! He was very patient and guided us during througout the day. We really enjoyed working with him, and we are very excited to see his masterpiece! We would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a professional videographer. Thank you VERY MUCH Mauricio for being an important part of our most special day! Lerma & Romeo

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.
