Doug did our wedding at SF City Hall and we were very pleased with his services. He was much more affordable than most other photographers we considered and was very pleasant to work with. He showed up to the location a couple hours before we did just to prepare and make sure he knew all the best places to shoot. When we arrived he took pictures as we stepped out of the limo and then through the entire affair. We think the photos turned out great. He also charged one fee for the whole shoot, which was as low as others charged hourly. Overall very friendly, well prepared and provided professional services at an unbeatable price.

Allan is of the best photographers I have ever worked with. His punctuality, friendly demeanor, faithfulness, and passion for capturing memories that will last a lifetime are his best qualities in business. He has all the right equipment, talent, and skill, and comes at a great price! I used him for my graduation photos and now use one of his photos for my linked in profile picture. He's an awesome guy and I'm really glad I hired him!

I hired Nicholas to film my Hindu wedding on a Sunday morning at Livermore two months ago. He was punctual and professional, ready with all his equipment in tow. Since there's no rehearsal for a Hindu wedding, I myself wasn't sure where he needs to stand or even go, but Nicholas was able to figure it out once in the event hall. After two weeks, we received the hard drive that held all the raw, unedited footage which is what I wanted and downloaded it onto our external drive. This took awhile for my husband and I to do, but Nicholas was extremely patient with us and reassured me it was okay to take our time. Once every clip was downloaded, my husband and I watched the unedited footage and relived our wedding day through Nicholas' eyes and filming, and it brings tears to our eyes to see the close-up of our expressions, the traditional clothing we wore, and marriage items on the stage. Nicholas also surprised us with still photos of our day even if he wasn't our paid photographer. In addition, the email and texting communication between Nicholas from start to end was prompt, and he was enthusiastic about filming his first Hindu wedding. I am also grateful that Nicholas worked within our budget and stayed the entire day from 9-2pm; he works for the passion of filming, and the money is secondary and I appreciated that commitment. He simply wants everything to be perfect for the bride and groom, and stress-free which it was. I would highly recommend future customers to hire Nicholas to film their special milestones in their lives.

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.

Hok was such a dream to work with for both our engagement and wedding photos. He is very responsive, kind, and flexible, so communication throughout the planning process was a breeze. Good communication was really important to us because we were planning our wedding from across the country! Hok also worked with our budget and we were able to get a package that was reasonably priced (and a great deal compared with other Bay Area photographers). Most importantly, Hok is a great person and his caring and thoughtfulness shows! Being someone who doesn't like photos taken of herself, I found Hok's warmth, humor, and genuine, down to earth nature very comforting and disarming. He really put us at ease. We feel so lucky to have found Hok and we highly recommend him to anyone looking to capture special moments!!

STOP reading this review and hire Paulina immediately! She is so professional, responsive, punctual, and technically great that it is hard to believe that she could be so warm, personable, and reassuring too! From the moment we met Paulina, we knew we were going to hire her. Her bubbly personality and enthusiasm made us even more excited for our own event. On the day of our wedding, she was perfectly on time and directed us through a beautiful and fun "first look." Sometimes it feels awkward to have a photographer taking pictures through an event, but Paulina integrated so well into the crowd that everyone thought that she was one of our friends...at the end of the evening no one wanted her to go! I'm sure that there are many good photographers out there for hire, but if you want someone truly special, who will be part of your team, and make your special day even more special, then look no further. She is truly one of a kind. Thank you Paulina!!!

I normally don't enjoy having my picture taken but Amanda made me feel very comfortable and I ended up having a great time. She was even able to wrangle my two Aussies into posing for pictures which is a feat in and of itself. The photos came out beautifully. Better than anyone I have worked with previously. I found my girl and plan on using her for all my photography needs going forward.

Qamara recently shot my maternity photos. Not only does she have an eye for good lighting but she was quite creative with finding great backgrounds for the photos; this streamlined the photoset's mood and gave each shot something special. Qamara made me feel confident and helped me plan out the shoot. Considering how pregnant I was at the time, I felt a little lost on what to do and how I wanted my photos. Qamara immediately gave me numerous ideas of what we could do; she gave me clear direction throughout the shoot which made me trust her vision and made me feel comfortable. Qamara was flexible and her presence made me feel welcome and at ease. She even took some candid photos that I was surprised by which came out beautifully. She provided me with a wide array of photographs that included various poses, close-ups, black and white, color, profiles, portraits, landscapes, you name it! It was wonderful to have a huge selection to cherish. Qamara stuck to the time that I had to work with her and worked hard to produce as many quality photographs as possible in that time period. It's very hard for me to say what could've gone better to be honest, since I really am pleased with the whole experience Qamara provided. I think I would've wanted more time with her for the shoot, but that was on me. Also, having a tripod for the shoot would've been nice for some shots. But she has a steady hand so it all worked out. She mentioned that she has a tripod so for future shoots that shouldn't be a problem. I would want more black and white options for the final photos but that's a technical thing that I could just request next time. I'm literally scratching my head thinking of something else but that is all! Qamara gets exponentially better with each photoshoot she does; I love all of her work on Instagram. Next time I need a photographer, she'll be the one I call.

Wayne was great! He met us on a Saturday. Gave us a timeline and finished even before his estimate. We are very happy we had him restore this very old family photograph from the 1920's that was damaged. Definitely recommend!

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.
