Thomas did a great job capturing our wedding at Wine & Roses in Lodi! Very professional and friendly person. He was never in the way or distracting like I have seen with other wedding photographers and yet he was still able to take so many amazing and memorable photos. Thank you!

We had a wonderful experience with William. He was very responsive and provided about 80 shots for us to choose from from our 2 hour session. We ended up with a wonderful photo for our Save the Date, and about 10 to choose from for our wedding website. William was also very nice and helped reduce any nerves we had about being in front of the camera.

Alena was one of the best decisions we made about our wedding - other than each other. Honestly, she was wonderful to work with: she was friendly and warm with our guests, orchestrated portraits smoothly, and took amazingly beautiful photographs with all sorts of creative framing and angles. We now have an album full of magical photos of this deeply meaningful day, and we would recommend her to anyone looking for a talented, creative, kind, and professional photographer for their wedding. She went above and beyond to understand our wishes for the photography and incorporate this input into her work. Thank you, Alena, for capturing our memories so beautifully!

Talented, professional, and flexible. He took my graduations photos from UC Davis and met up with me in the area. He brought his equipment and implemented all my ideas. Overall, open-minded and great to work with. His pricing was cheaper than most photographers and photos were received sooner than I thought. I highly recommend.

Working with Jerome was an amazing experience! From the time we met with him we knew it was a perfect match and we instantly knew we wanted to hire him. His work is absolutely beautiful. Jerome made the effort to get to know us to ensure that our photos reflected exactly what we wanted (love, happiness, fun, family, and most importantly the candid shots!) His kindness and professionalism throughout the VERY hot July summer day shows just how passionate he is about his work. We loved him, our guests loved him and his amazing photos. The quality of his photos are out of this world gorgeous. Looking at our wedding album feels like we are reliving every moment of our special day and we can’t thank him enough. Jerome even kindly gifted us with a couple of extra photos and personalized our wedding album with our color scheme, names, and wedding date! We made the best decision with hiring Jerome and would hire him again for future events! We feel as though we’ve made a friend. If you’re looking for a wedding photographer that is passionate about their work, ensures their customers are satisfied, and has the best quality photos, then look no further then Jerome! Thank you! Austin and Apryl-Lazell Davison

Giving 5 Stars to Trendz Team Photography is not enough! Their work has been hands down the most amazing I've seen. As a little girl, you dream of your wedding and you can only hope to find a photographer that can capture those special moments. Working with Samantha and Bao made me forget about worries and realize this is the best day of my life. They went out of their way to work with us to create beautiful pictures for our wedding, and did it in a stress free way! We have found not only life time photographers for our family, but two life time friends. There's not enough words to say just how amazing Samantha and Bao are! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

I was looking for a videographer/video production company to provide me with videography for my wedding. I was skeptical due to the price, but how I would have regretted it not having that video from my wedding. Yes, videography and photography is expensive, but I would almost say that I will cherish my videos more than my photos due to the shear fact that you hear your and your spouse's voice saying your vows; pictures can't do that. Elegant Events Media were so great about payment options, and really worked well for my payment needs. I usually spoke with Brad, but everyone I spoke to were great! They answered as many questions as I had with great patience, and that was so appreciated. Leading up to the wedding they contacted me multiple times to make sure all plans were the same and to clarify any questions they had, but also to make sure I didn't have any more questions for them. On the wedding day, Darin was our videographer, and gosh am I glad we got him. He was so professional, and so easy to work with, but he was also in constant communication with the photographer as well. Watching out video back, there were times he recorded that I didn't even realize he was there, which made it so genuine. I cannot be more thankful for Darin and his time with us at our wedding. With editors of our video were amazing, and although the music we initially picked for the background music wasn't in the video, I ended up LOVING the songs they had picked instead. The turn around time from the wedding to when we got the final project was about 2 weeks, which I thought was totally reasonable. The short video was so fun, and the extended video was also edited with music and transitions which was so appreciated, since I pictured an old home video of all raw footage of the wedding. I would highly recommend Elegant Events Media for videography, and I would HIGHLY recommend Darin for your day.

From the get-go, Damian was super responsive, easy to communicate with, and his past work spoke for itself. We couldn’t wait to hire him for our wedding film. On wedding day, he and his team were so professional and discreet, I didn’t even notice they were there until after the ceremony! Of course we ran completely behind schedule at the reception, but he went above and beyond to stay an extra half an hour to capture what we had originally asked him to capture. Thank you Damian and Heart + Soul Films! We can’t wait to see our video!

Caravan Film Crews went above and beyond to capture beautiful footage from our wedding. They came with a crew of three, and were well-ahead of schedule to ensure all precious moments of our reception would be recorded. We obtained over five hours of footage that showcased the pre-reception footage from our photoshoot, decor and setup, and the entire program of the reception (cocktail hour, entrance, toasts, and dancing). Additionally, Teddy submitted our footage in a timely manner, giving us a short 12 minute highlight video a month after our reception accompanied with the hard drive showing all footage captured. I commend Caravan on spotting so many of the hidden moments in our wedding, and doing so in such a cinematic way. Watching our wedding video was like watching a Hollywood movie! Thank you to Teddy and the Caravan crew for recording these memories with such taste and artistry!

My Fiancée and I hired Nick Nixlan for our wedding and he has to be one of the best in Sacramento, or at least on his way up. His pricing is very reasonable and the quality is unmeasurable. Let me tell you this man is a gentle man and will keep you and your bride happy and giggling for all of your photos. His taste and perspective brings a unique view that we couldn't seem to find in other professional photographers. He worked with our budget and delivered outstanding quality images and wonderful memories for my growing family! I recommend anyone looking for a honest wedding photographer with REAL knowledge about how to operate a camera and deliver outstanding quality, call. You will not be disappointed.

I just got our pictures back this morning, and they are amazing! She managed to capture just how happy and wonderful everything was. Ashley was super professional, and fun to work with. Normally I hate the way I look in pictures so hiring a photographer for my wedding was a really difficult decision, but she really made everything absolutely perfect. 11/10 would hire again!

Shelby shot our wedding on May 26th. Shelby was so easy to work with. She gave great direction and was able to handle the most difficult family members all while producing amazing photos. We were very impressed by how quickly we received our edited photos (we received them yesterday with a large sneak peak only a few days after the wedding). There were so many great shots that I am going to have a hard time selecting them to make an album. Seeing the photos literally brought me to tears. She did such a great job capturing those special moments. We look forward to hiring Shelby again for future shoots!

Jessica did our engagement photos and we were so happy she could do our wedding as well! She wasn't afraid to experiment with the lighting which created some really unique and beautiful pictures. We get asked about them all the time! Our ceremony was at the Cathedral in Downtown Sacramento, which is a tough place to photograph due to the lighting. All of the indoor shots were perfect, we couldn't be more pleased with how they turned out. After the ceremony we walked across the street to take some pictures at the Capitol building. It was blazing hot that day, and Jessica was great at directing everyone in order to get us into some air conditioning as soon as possible. She had a clear vision for each picture, and knew exactly where each person needed to be. We were so thankful for that! The reception was at the Elks Tower Ballroom and I am so glad we have these pictures, because she and the second photographer were able to get pictures of all the tables, centerpieces, food, and candy table before guests arrived. We didn't get to see/enjoy most of those things during the reception because it was a whirlwind, so it's great to be able to go back and look at those photos! She did a good job being present for all the key moments but also catching so many candid photos; as well as helping out when a family member or group of friends wanted a picture with me and my husband. Overall, we couldn't have asked for a better photographer. She made everyone feel comfortable and was able to capture all of the important moments. We also purchased an album from her. I can't express how much I enjoy showing this off! It is BEAUTIFUL!! Whenever I show it to someone for the first time, they make comments on the design of each page, which was all Jessica! It was very well done, and I love it. Thank you so much Jessica!

Wow!! How lucky we were to find Ben! With only a week to go before our wedding day we found ourselves without a photographer and feared that we would have to settle for whoever was available rather than great photography. Not the case! Ben was very professional and personable, he fit right in with our family and friends. We even had a couple of friends who pursue photography as a hobby come over to compliment us on him " Where did you find the photographer? He is really good, he's got some great poses........" Being that we were married in our home we were limited on good scenery and lighting for photos but this was not a problem for Ben. He captured all of our moments beautifully and was very creative with poses ranging from fun to soft and romantic. It was obvious that photography is his passion, not just a job and it really shows in his work. We are very happy with the results! Thank You Ben! Nicole and Matt DeHayes

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.
