The photo booth was a big hit. I'm very happy with the quality and professionalism of Doug Fairbairn Photography. We got photo strips the night of the event and received a link to the electronic files for viewing and downloading the next day. Would book them again.

We are very happy with Chris and his works. He came on time, covered all the guests and the decoration, was very friendly with the guests while taking their pictures, and took excellent photos. We didn't have enough lighting in our party hall, which is a challenge for photography. But the photos Chris took have come out absolutely gorgeous. My experience was really great. I would highly recommend Wowza Photography.

Simona arrived at 8:30am at Cabrillo College in Aptos, CA, half hour early and set up and was ready to video tape me teaching. She was professional and uploaded the finished product to my Youtube account. I would definitely hire her again. Kathleen Richards

Allan was the photographer for my Senior Clarinet Recital poster. I loved the unique shots and angles he caught of me. He had a very clear vision on poses, backgrounds, and lighting that I agreed with. In addition to photography, he also does poster editing. I am excited to put them up!

Nicholas did an amazing job capturing all of the special moments and details in our wedding with an articstic eye! Our friends and family are still raving about his work! He was also very accommodating and went above and beyond to film everything we asked for and more. Leading up to the wedding, he was always responsive immediately within the day if not hour and even after the wedding during the editing process he was like this! He has always been professional, polite, and friendly. He got along great with our photographer. He got our wedding video to us very quickly and edited everything beautifully while making sure to cleverly add in our special songs and props. If you are looking for someone professional, creative, friendly, accommodating, and affordable for your special occasions look no further!

I hired Mementostrip for a company party over the weekend in Santa Cruz. ALL of my fellow employees were very pleased with the service provided, and the photobooth added the FUN to my event! From my initial inquiry, to background format set-up, to night of the event, Bao, Joe and Marissa were very professional and supportive. I had zero worries about this vendor and I WILL use Mementostrip again for sure, 110% ! THANK YOU to the entire Mementostrip team! Chris- Santa Cruz, CA

Kavya could not have done a better job with our engagement photos! She was prompt to reply and arrange a rather quick appointment with us as we were on a deadline. She was friendly and professional throughout the shoot, providing the right amount of suggestions/tips to get the perfect shots without being overbearing. She is also quite adventurous, climbing down rocks with camera in hand to get to a beach in order to get the perfect shot! I ended up with so many great pictures that she sent within 2 days after the shoot. I would definitely recommended her for all your photography needs.

I recently had the pleasure of meeting Amanda and having her take some pictures of me. I typically do not like having my picture taken, but she created an environment in which I felt comfortable and relaxed. She has a very pleasant personality and the quality of her photography left me feeling extremely satisfied with the overall experience.

Wow! We are still over the moon with what a wonderful job Catie did for our engagement shoot. My fiancé and I have never been thrilled about having our photos taken and quite honestly we were nervous to have our engagement photos done. As soon we began taking photos all those nerves went away. Catie did a wonderful job getting us to relax, laugh and be ourselves. Aside from all the fun we had during the shoot, the pictures turned out amazing! I am still receiving complements left and right from all our friends and family about how wonderful the pictures came out. My favorite comments have been our engagement photos “radiate love” and “captures the love we have for each other”. Catie was on top of everything, she was answering all my questions before the shoot, directed us to capture the best pictures and she got us the finished photos in under a week! Because of our wonderful experience, we are having Catie shoot our wedding Fall 2019.

We had the pleasure to work with Katia for our Maternity shoot. She was great, listened to minute details and paid close attention to what the client needs. We hired her for an jour but she went above and beyond to make sure our needs were met. I would recommend her for your photography needs.

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.
