We got married last month, and are so happy with how wonderful Ruben and his team are. Ruben is extremely responsive and professional and goes out of his way to capture exactly what you are looking for! We hired them for video, photo, and photo booth and they were so easy to work with. We were able to see all our photobooth pictures the next day as promised. I highly recommend Sybex Studios for all your video/photography needs, book them ASAP!

Chris was great to work with for my real estate photo shoot! Excellent pictures! He accommodated my special requests and made 2 trips due to bad weather because timing of the pics were critical for me. Would definitely recommend 👍🏽

Allan took my daughter's senior photos. They are beautiful! She wanted a beach backdrop and he suggested several locations. He took time to listen to her and had a lot of great ideas to make the shots special. Setting the appointment, the photo shoot, and getting the photos was incredibly easy and a fun experience. We love the photos!!!!!

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 clicks awesome pictures and is a thorough professional. We hired her to do maternity photo shoot for me and my wife. First, she gave us some basic tips on preparing for the photoshoot (like kinds of clothes that look good in photos) and suggested a few locations. On the day of the shoot, she was on time and well prepared. She had scouted the park before so she knew what were the good locations for pictures. What I really liked was that she seemed personally invested in getting good pictures. She made suggestions about poses. Ahead of time, we had sent her a few pictures from the internet to give her an idea of what kind of pictures we were looking for. She had studied our request in detailed and meticulously recreated the poses for us. At the end of the photoshoot, she mildly edited the pictures (like cropping and adjusting color tone and brightness etc.) and gave us all the pictures (more than 200) from the 2 hour long photoshoot. I highly recommend Meeta, esp. if you are looking for a fun-filled photoshoot.

I have done two different photo shoots with Lorinda. The first one was a pin up shoot I did with my best friend. Lorinda is so light hearted and fun that it made me feel so much more comfortable. I am not super photogenic as it is, but Lorinda made me feel like a natural. The second time was a family photo shoot I did with my sisters and brother. We went to two different locations and Lorinda was so accommodating with all of our different tastes. She makes you laugh and feel so at home when she is taking your pictures that they naturally come out beautiful. Lorinda is super efficient and has your photos prepared in a timely manner. I would definitely recommitment Lorinda for anyone looking to have photos taken for any occasion because no one will make you feel more comfortable than her. She loves her job and loves making every person feel and know they are beautiful and it shows through her photos. She is a natural.

My husband and I recently made the fantastic decision to hire Hok to photograph our wedding. Throughout the entire process, Hok was attentive, responsive, and kind. He went out of his way to make us feel comfortable, coming out to the property ahead of time to check lighting and scout photography locations, assuring us that even if it rained our wedding was going to be perfect, and bringing an additional assistant to assure that he would capture all of our special moments in case of rain. He and his team captured every moment, and each photograph feels alive and full of heart. He photographed a range of lighting; indoor, outdoor, morning, sunset, and night sky over a bonfire, all with equal skill. Every time I look at them I feel like I am there again, experiencing moments I was a part of, and even those that I wasn't. Everyone who sees the photos is in awe. I would highly recommend him for any event!

It was an absolutely wonderful experience working with Kavya. She was very professional and gave great advice during the photo shoot. Only a few days after the event, not only she sent me more pictures than we agreed, but also she added her professional touch to all of them without any extra charge! This was the first time I used Thumbtack and as I am not very tech savvy, I had a hard time to respond to her messages. Kavya patiently walked me through every step including how to submit payment. All the pictures turned out great too.

A tremendous Thank You to Bao and Memento Strip! We had our wedding banquet on 9/10 and Bao's team was instrumental in making our banquet a success. There were many many moving parts to our banquet - from the decorator showing up late, to our bar running out of ice, to our ice cream station not keeping up with demand, etc etc ... but the one solid reliable piece at our wedding banquet which our guests had a lot of fun with (aside from the delicious food, so I've heard - groom didn't get to eat lol) was the Photo and Video Booth from Memento Strip. Bao and his team showed up early to setup to ensure everything was running smoothly. In addition we had wanted both a Video and Photo Booth for our guests to both record messages and take pictures - because space was limited, Bao, during his consultation with us, was able to customize a booth that had both functions in one - this really helped our space issue and allowed us space for our wishing tree without sacrificing the video messages. Service was great, the attendant was friendly and helpful the entire time, prints came out quickly in high quality and the double prints worked well for our many guests. After the banquet the Memento Strip team even stayed a little bit later and helped us with a few odd and ends! We will undoubtedly be using Memento Strip for our next event!

Amanda was amazing! She photographed our small wedding in Carmel Valley this past Halloween. Before our event, I sat down with her and we discussed which types of shots I'd like her to capture: getting ready, walking down the aisle with my dad, the first kiss, family photos, dancing, photos around the gorgeous property, eating and celebrating with family. She took the time to edit each photo, individually, making each one the best they could be. I appreciate the time she took to make us feel comfortable, and when she took direction, as we are not models and didn't necessarily know how to stand/act. The moments she captured were perfect and we will cherish them forever. Thanks again Amanda!

Lynna is completely amazing and we definitely plan to use her services for our next family photo shoot. We planned for another location, but due to rain we had a make a quick plan B the night before. She was so flexible in making sure we would have the correct venue for the shots, especially since I only wanted outdoor shots. We opted for Stanford's campus since they have large overhangs to protect us from the rain and with the natural light and architecture, it was perfect. She gave us good direction, which can be hard with a photo shoot of 3 sets of family- grandparents, two sons with their wives and 3 toddlers! She handled all the personalities seamlessly and made everyone feel comfortable and heard. We did many traditional family shots, but my favorites were the candid shots. She was able to capture the candid, pure smiles, and laughs of my daughters; to me, that is priceless and the main reason for hiring a photographer instead of the big box photo studio type pictures. She took many shots so we had dozens to choose from, it actually made it tough to narrow down what we would put on our Christmas cards and blow up for wall decorations! Lynna is the best at capturing life! Thank you, Lynna!

Greg does our son's photo shoot (newborn and monthly for the first year). Every month I kind of wonder if it's necessary b/c we take so many pictures with our iphone then I receive Greg's monthly pictures and I fall in love with the little guy (my son) even more. Thank you Greg!

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.
